Re: Boring score!!!(Guillermo)
Did you ever WATCH the movie, does the soundtrack support the movie? If it does then it's a reason to give the score ***** cause Zimmer doesn't write music because it'll sound great on the album.
Imagine a score like Whale Rider that worked very well in the film but is a boring listen outside of the movie it would immediatly receive a * from reviewers like Clemmensen, maybe ** if it sounds interesting (I don't think Clemmensen even reviewed it).
Any idiot can compare Star Wars and The Green Mile and know instantly which one is a more exciting listening experience but just a small fraction can tell if a score works well in a movie and that's exactly what film music is about.
