I have read your review *more than once* and yes you do lay out your points very well about why you don't like the score. I do prefer that to if you had hated it and not given a good reason why. but that comment wasn't aimed at you, it was all the rush of Hooper bashing nowadays to a score I don't feel deserves that much venom.

but that's my opinion, others have different. such is life, and we move on
