Ep. 159 - Danny Elfman's 'Batman'
Score Cue Snapshots! • Action, Adventure, 16-May-2022

Ep. 157 - Patrick Doyle's 'Thor'
We love the collaboration between Patrick Doyle and Branagh, and 'Thor' is one of Doyle's best scores simply because of its complexity. Doyle himself even mentioned that it was a challenge to find a tone that fit the duality of Asgard and Earth, and we think he found a perfect balance.
Ep. 156 - John Williams' 'Home Alone'
We think it is fair to say that the 1990 Chris Columbus film 'Home Alone' is one of the best Christmas movies ever made. Produced by the great John Hughes, it was nominated for multiple awards including two Academy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Original Song.
