Knowing   Thursday, April 2, 2009 (7:29 p.m.) 

I couldn't agree more with Clemmensen about this film spoiling its potential to be intellectually stimulating. I was lured into seeing it by Roger Ebert's four star review, where he WAS in existential contemplation mode. I think he was out of his mind. What I saw instead was intellectually dishonest, anti-scientific, end-times religion masquerading as a science fiction film.

Well, the religion part sounded forced. It was full of half baked ideas and the plot just got nowhere new. Ir may have used some more brainstorming.
As for the score, I liked the bits where Nicolas Cage is sorting the numbers and the finale. A bit different from Beltrami's normal action material, which makes its appearance in the subway wreckage. Though nothing else is noteworthy.

Hey, Richard Kleiner - are you the same Richard Kleiner who made the "It's the Same Music" Youtube videos? Because I really liked those.

Actually, yes. Thanks for watching. I was going to make a third video but I wasn't able to upload it. We'll stay in touch.

Well, I don't want to push my own YouTube videos here, but I put together a film music comparison video as well (my name there's JoeSnyderwalk). I used two of the examples you showed on your video, but I swear I had heard them myself before I watched "It's the Same Music," so don't be hatin' me for it .

Hope you enjoy it!
