One Star????   Sunday, January 8, 2006 (2:52 p.m.) 

As of this post, 1,446 people selected the one star option for John Williams' "Schindler's List". Chances are, if there was a zero star choice, there would be folks who would select it. What this means, since it is the lowest possible rating available, is that the score has absolutely no redeemable qualities. This means the score is horrible, atrocious, abominable...and many other adjectives that indicate that this score is somehow on par with someone making an album out of chainsaw noises.

This would mean, to me, that those people either have no love in their hearts for film scores (or music in general, for that matter) or don't have the slightest comprehension as to what a one star rating signifies...

The problem, I feel, is that when someone doesn't like something, they automatically label it poorly, without thinking first.

Shame.

Tim

P.S. please forgive any grammatical or spelling errors, as I typed this very fast because I was fairly heated about this matter.

Tim,
I understand your frustration.

I think some people have an automatic backlash if something is extremely well-liked or popular, therefore they gave it a one.
Also, some people will just give the score a one because it is John Williams. There are some people that don't like him because of the tired and idiotic "he's-a-thief" argument, or because of the backlash to his popularity. Either way, it's a shame because I personally think he's brilliant.

But what can you do, it's their loss, right?

Yes, I think it is very stupid. Good thing it happens with every score, so the ratings will remain more or less the same.

Well, don't forget people who write one star many times are just being jackasses. They don't have any opinions, but they like to "balance things out" by being dumbasses.

The people who selected 1 star are just fools and have no idea of the greatness of this score and are just jealous because J.W. is the best

Which are they? Jackasses or Dumbasses? They can't be both as they are subspecies to each other. Like Democrats and Republicans.

You people have no right to backlash against the one star selectors..All who selected the single star option access internet from the institutions for correction of mental disturbances...cant blame them.
