I didn’t like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3…but I absolutely love the soundtrack. I can’t stop listening to it. The score is exhilirating in a way the movie wasn’t. Composer Michael Giacchino did a fantastic reinterpreting Lalo Schifrin’s classic cues and added some great ones of his own. I’m also a huge fan of Giacchino’s THE INCREDIBLES soundtrack, a rousing and fun-loving homage to the John Barry 007 scores of the 60s and 70s (particularly ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE). I’m hoping the Bond folks pick Giacchino to score CASINO ROYALE…

I loved the score to THE INCREDIBLES, too, but think it owed more to Hank Mancini’s “Charade” and Pink Panther scores than to John Barry’s Bond pix, especially with that jaunty 5/4 time signature–but I admit that the first time I heard it, it did made me think 007. Pity I’ll never get to hear the MI3 score, though, as I can’t bring myself to have anything to do with that film.
The original previews for THE INCREDIBLES did indeed use music from OHMSS. John Barry was signed to score the film, but left shortly after beginning work due to “creative differences” (and we all know that phrase!)
You can find the original previews on the DVD of INCREDIBLES….
