Review Borders on Ignorance

It's always sad for me to read comments or reviews that show so little understanding of music trends and history. To call Goldenthal's orchestrations for just "noise" borders on ignorance. Goldentahl's music blends in a very personal way the styles of composers such as Strauss,Stravinsky, 20th Century Polish avangard, and Jazz. One can argue the qualities of the film, but to over simplify the qualities of the music is just not fair for what the composer is trying to do. Film composing is not just about writing catchy tunes and Goldenthal is one of the most original and brave composer I have seen in years.
