• Now Playing: Theme from Schindler's List - John Williams  

It's a functional score, but I never found myself really taken away by the music. Too much like his other musical jaunts in the action genre, and while I enjoyed the film I thought that the music was simply an exercise in Zimmer's endurance rather than testing his ability to compose inspiring cues.

Oh yeah, where's a full score CD for Thelma and Louis?

I probably missed it already huh?

It's really painful to see ...   Wednesday, September 13, 2006 (7:09 a.m.) 

I don't know how others feel, but it's really painful to see that Pirates 2 (the movie) now stands next to Return of the King as the third most successful movie of all time. Having the score for Dead Man's chest in the same category as Shore's RotK is dreadful beyond words.

I think you are mixing two different things for drawing your opinion. Big Box Office Business is a reflection of either a) A good film which people have watched over and over again or b) Sucessful Marketing.

When you consider Pirates 2 has now taken over $1bn, that it a collosal amount of money so, regardless of what you or I may think about the film, it really means nothing as enough people must be enjoying it. A film can make big money on clever marketing alone, but to get your film in the top three movies of ALL TIME means that lots of people must like the film and have watched it more than once.

As for Zimmer composing the score, I really don't feel that is a consideration when talking about box office business. Me, I'm a huge Zimmer fan but I think his score for Pirates 2 is "okay" at best (but DaVinci was f****** fantastic). However, it doesn't pain me to think that the third highest grossing movie of all time has a score by Zimmer. Even if I hated Zimmer, it would still be something I would not consider.

Sure, music is important to a film, very important in fact, but a film like Pirates got people to watch it through likable characters, some excellent action, great performances and, most importantly, pure escapism.

So no, it is not painful to see Pirates 2 in third place because personally, I feel the film had many redeeming qualities to it and was the only film all year where I didn't look at my watch mid-performance (and I see virtually every film working in a cinema)
