What Media Ventures has done to film scores is to take what was once, well..music, scores written to use all the power _and_ elegance of an orchestra in sweeping, beautiful passages...and reduce it to, so to speak, a blunt instrument.
When all the instruments are playing the same note at the same time, all in short, stactacco pounding over the drums, over and over, the SAME from The Rock till now, just re-used and re-used cues... you have to wonder WHAT HAS HAPPENED to film scores.
Is this the new trend? Will the sweeping decents from action to waltzlike segues and character themes both majestic and complex with strong cultural cues be a thing of the past?
I was disappointed enough with Pirates of the Carribean, which was just a mash of The Rock and...whatever else, unlistenable. But he keeps DOING it AGAIN!
Please, Media Ventures..shut down. You're ruining music.
