In regards to Mr. Burwell's commnets   Monday, April 23, 2007 (9:55 a.m.) 

The Author of the Filmtracks Editorial Review on A Knight’s Tale (Burwell) is seriously lacking in his ability to successfully analyze cinema. His view that the popular music added to this period piece undermines this already un-artistic film totally circumvents the lagitamacy of popular culture and blinds him to the relatively complex nature of popular music in film. His discrediting of the capitalist system and the way in which this movie is marketed to its audience is not only problematic in that he is unable to analyze the movie because of this block but also because discounting the culture that we live in is wholly unrealistic. In conclusion, Mr. Burwell is in dire need of some training so that he will be able to give reviews on movies in a more intelligent manner

Hehehe. That just made me laugh! Carter Burwell is the COMPOSER of the soundtrack. And it is spelled L-E-G-I-T-I-M-A-C-Y.

And why would someone so thoroughly have to "analyze" a "film" that you already aknowledged as un-artistic? Just because you use words like "circumvent" and "wholly" doesn't mean you make a better point.

So lighten up. The score sucked. And the movie was quite forgettable.
