Surely Goldsmith wrote themes for it, but the FUNCTION like a

That's at least how I see
I like it.
How can you possibly say that? There is quite a good main theme for the film. Heard most prominently during "Imhotep" right at the beginning and also when the pharoh comes into the palace chamber in the film. How can you say that's not a theme that stands out? It's probably one of the best themes written and it's a lot more than a leitmotif. It even holds up for the action setting it is put to in "My Favorite Plague." And as far as comparing it to Star Wars, why does everyone do this? The Star Wars score was pretty good. Not as spectacular as everyone says but not terrible. Personally, I'm tired of hearing about it. I haven't bothered to listen to it in about six months. But in the end, The Mummy has 4 great themes: the main theme, O'Connel's "hero" theme, the love theme, and the ever ominous theme for "Imhotep."
