But Score Realm, who also gave the score ** out of *****, are terribly off, too. What's their problem you may ask?? I'm still confused. . . How they can diss such a wonderfully playful and delightful score like this?? I'm still puzzled. . . The score is nothing less than gorgeous. A beautiful theme for Boo, accompanied by plenty of great action music. . . Calling this "typical Newman fare" is exactly like saying a new Horner score is "typical Horner fare", which most of them ARE. . . but does Christian give THEM **?? Noooooooo. . . In other words, pay no heed to any negative reviews on this score. It's definitely a **** / ***** score and definitely deserved an Oscar nod.
