A 2005 interview with Danny before his music for Serenada Schizophrana deputed at Carnegie Hall, although not specifically written for a movie, it is present here on SST and he also talks about his general method of composition along with some of his film scores.

Interview

Danny talking about his work on Corpse Bride, along with Mike Johnson who co-composed, and the parelles between it and Nightmare Before Christmas.

Not a good quality video, but here is a quick video and interview with Danny Elfman talking about his score to "Batman Returns" and the Batman theme.

elfman is a shadow of his former self. it's like one of those old time wreslters who don't know when to quit.

terminator salvation and hellboy 2 is like everything that's wrong with movie music today. it's so generic with no flare or distinction. he didn't do the fans any justice.

he didn't borrow anything from brad fediel. beltrami atleast tried to make an effort with t3. paying elfman to do terminator is just wrong. i feel sorry for james cameron and brad fediel.

I read recently that they're putting Elfman's score back on The Wolfman. I wouldn't pay much attention, except they had replaced him with Paul Haslinger. After the dud that was Haslinger's score for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, I must say I'm grateful, even if Elfman's sound isn't what it used to be.

I'm reading a book by Janet Halfyard about Elfman that argues that for some of that, we can blame the studios. Blockbusters are expensive, and they don't really want to take risks with the music. They want it to sound like the last thing that did well, written by the same guy.

I completely agree LadyInque! Great to see that they put Elfman's music back in since Haslinger has yet to show much promise with his music. Conrad Pope was brought it to arrange and fill in while using Elfman's themes since Wolfman has gone through several edits. Elfman was busy with Alice In Wonderland plus I am sure he was none to happy they rejected it in the first place and now have decided to use his music again (albeit in a chopped up form I am sure).

You can listen to some samples of the music at the Varese site: Wolfman Cover Art, Tracklisting and Samples

A 2010 interview by Alex Billington of Firstshowing.net

http://www.firstshowing.net/2010/03/29/interview-with-alice-in-wonderland-composer-danny-elfman/

Best quote imo: "In that sense, it's really, really hard. Because I'll go, "Well, am I hearing — is this Jerry Goldsmith? I don't think so. I think it's somebody doing Jerry Goldsmith. But now, they're doing John Williams. And now, at this point in the movie, it seems like they're doing– oh, look at that. They're doing Danny Elfman. Hmm. Interesting." They sound a little bit like a smorgasbord of composers. So in that sense it's harder to tell. Because composers, back in the old days, they didn't freely, in the context of the same move, borrow the style of two to three other contemporaries of theirs and mimic them. But that's a big chunk of film music today."

Six months later, the set to which jaded refers has finally come out, and received the lowest possible rating from that guy at filmtracks.com:
http://www.filmtracks.com/titles/elfman_burton.html

To be fair, he's seldom pleased with anything, really, and I think he tends, especially of late, to be nastier in his negative reviews than is warranted. Still, if the story he tells is true, I don't see how this box set was worth it for anyone.

If you wanna listen to Elfman's score for Dark Shadows, it's streaming here for a while:

I simply have no idea what to make of this movie so far.
