    I watched Blade Trinity last night & it made me start to wonder again why d&b isnt used in films.
    Seeing that its the most energetic music out there i dont see why its never used in films. Blade Trinity is full of fight scenes with breakbeat tracks playing, when you know d&b would sound better!
    discuss...

    perfect it would have been, but it would have scared the living shit out of most people that went to see it.

    but yeah def agree on this one, drumz would go perfectly in a film score

    haha. i thought it was good film. the ending was a bit shat: trying to put some deep, thoughtful quote in at the end which didnt really work. they even made a big thing about that girl that puts tunes on iPod to fight to, yet she has no drum&bass- sort it out!
    deffo agree wit the comments on Neo. i think it would have gone perfectly into some of the fight scenes.

    I agree with all of you!When i watch all these modern action movies, I just hear the d'n'b in the back :twitchy:
    Movies like the Matrix or Blade just have to be with d'n'b soundtrack! :devilslay

    when i was living with my folks who had sky one of the movie channels was advertising ronin, film with rob de niro, shaun bean etc and the music they used to advertise the film was brown paper bag.....fantastic but there was me thinking that it was actually used in the score....alas no but quality match of d n b to a nice film.....

    Try mashing Nancy Sinatra's Bang Bang with a dnb tune...
    The other OST tunes are also cool...
