• In Response to: Re: Why references to Zimmer? (Blue Sky)

While I was watchin RD in the theatre I thought the music suited it and helped the mood. However, listening to clips separately on this site, I doubt I would buy the soundtrack. True, the first prioroty should be to serve the film rather than the commercial album, but I think really really good soundtrack music works both ways. A loud chord or short set of notes will make someone jump or feel something in reaction, but a further step from that is to make a well polished piece of good music, and film composers shouldn't give in to the temptation to hold back just because they have images and dialogue to accompany it. Though, granted the time factor, that may be what they simply have to do sometimes (e.g. Zimmer on Pearl Harbour).
