This "Frisbee" Will Win An Oscar   Monday, February 14, 2011 (11:57 a.m.) 

Thank you for this narrow minded garbage review, it provided a good laugh.

This film's score was easily the most effective of the year at supplementing the film it was made for. I will probably never listen to this score on its own, but a successful score is one that improves the film it was created for. This understated and unobtrusive score brilliantly accented TSN whereas Zimmer's was an overbearing distraction in Inception.

Five stars and the accolades are well deserved.

I'll agree with that. Of all the scores I've heard, this is the first that has actually made me feel ill after listening to it...

Those were the exact words of a friend of mine who was never into soundtracks, but he instantly bought this album after he had watched "The Social Network"...

As did I. When I was watching the film I didn't really notice the score at all, so I'm not really sure why people keep saying how 'well it works in the film'. But anyway, I then bought the album to actually listen to it, and it undoubtedly ranks among the top 5 worst scores I have ever heard.

I'd have to strongly disagree and give this "score" a thumbs up. Yes it's mindless, monotony in places but there are the odd decent theme (notably 'Intriguing Possibilities'). Certainly not a frisbee either way.

I'm also equally glad and disappointed that it won the Oscar. Glad as it was a (albeit minor) risk taken for once by such a usually dull, unchanged flannel of committee members' standard weak decisions (apart from best Director did nobody else predict the winners weeks in advance?) But also disappointed as I agree that both Powell's HTTY Dragon (robbed) and Zimmer's Inception were far more worthy contenders. But I guess the Academy are more comfortable taking risks in Original Score than any other category.
