That's why I disagree with the original criticism, both of the film and of the score. The film went in a different direction, just enough to make it interesting. (How seriously can you take a film where Jim Carrey is a co-villain?) The score followed suit, again just enough to make it interesting. Any time the tracks are titled "Batterdämmerung" and "Holey Rusted Metal," you know you're not supposed to be taking it seriously, for heaven's sake. Plus, one of the tracks was good enough on its own merits to get played on the local classical music station!
