Danny ElfmanIf you've watched at least five movies in the last 20 or so years, then there's a good chance Danny Elfman scored three of them. From creating that memorable theme for The Simpsons to playing a gigantic role in helping Tim Burton discover a unique look and feel for his films, Elfman, with his composing, has a way of capturing an idea, then separating it from anything we've ever seen before. Now there's word - strike that - a whole lot of nasty words being thrown about by Elfman concerning his abrupt departure from Spider-Man 3. Yeah, I thought it had to do with Kirsten Dunst's terrible acting too, but it seems director Sam Raimi has transformed himself into an evil villain, subsequently forcing Elfman to sever their long-term relationship and leave the superhero series for good. "As far as I'm concerned, he went to sleep, somebody put a pod next to him and when he awoke, he wasn't the same person I'd known for a decade." Damn, Danny boy must be really pissed off if he's throwing out the "pod-speak." Oh, but it gets so much better; "It's the first time I've ever walked away from a director in 20 years and hopefully the last time I have to turn my back on someone, but it became like intolerable." Finally! Chameleon has showed up! Only, looks like that character is being played out behind the camera instead of in front of it.
