Should have won the Oscar   Tuesday, July 26, 2011 (7:11 a.m.) 

Easily Powell's best score and probably the best score of the year.
As the review says, the Scottish influences are an odd choice, but, again as the review points out, it is at least consistent.

A fantastic work that is as enjoyable away from the screen as it is on.

• Now Playing: Soul Surfer, Marco Beltrami  

I must agree. Despite the strengths of the other oscar nominees, How To Train Your Dragon's relentless inventiveness and highly attractive themes beat out the competition.
Now if only The Last Airbender's score had been nominated.....

Agreed, though I stopped watching the Oscars along time ago. I actually enjoyed all the scottish influences it is actually what makes this soundtrack so appealing.
