xXx State of the Union / Cursed - Marco Beltrami
Sorry for the long delay. Been a busy few months. With the new year here now, I hope to be posting alot more now. So today, I will be posting a double feature from Marco Beltrami.
First up is Marco Beltrami's score for the sequel, xXx: State of the Union. The movie is pure popcorn, over the top action but to me is way better than the first film. Defiently the one thing that stands out from this film than the original, is Marco's score.
Marco wrote a great action score with alittle James Bond flavor added in. Sadly, I think because of the box-office failure, the score was not commercially released. So I present to you, the complete score for the film, xXx State of the union.

Next up is Marco's score for the film, Cursed. The movie brought back Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson and Marco Beltrami who all worked together on the Scream trilogy. While the score is not up to par with the Scream scores. It is a very entertaining listen and I think it could have deserved a commercial release. But Marco did not like how the score turned out in the end and I think is one of the reasons why there was no official release. The score is fully orchestral with some cues having synth elements added in. Overall, I think it's a score you'll want to sink your teeth into...lol
