Okay, Mikal... Here's a fact that can be broken down by looking at Zimmer's sheet music... Simple, consistent, and nearly constant repetition = boring. The score can be engaging in short bursts, but at its full length the phrase "objectively boring" applies.

Furthermore, don't lecture me, jackass... You don't know me, and the only thing I've seen out of you is a complete miss when you nearly guaranteed that Clemmensen wouldn't throw down 5 stars on HTTYD.
