...more than Iron Man 3, Now You See Me and certainly a good sight more than Thor: The Dark World, all of which got better ratings from you. Not that Turtles is a beacon of sophistication exactly, but it's got some of Tyler's densest, most interesting orchestral writing to date (leagues beyond the Remote Control standard you seem to think this score adheres to), and some truly furious rhythmic passages. I think it's worthy of four stars easy.

Oh well, good to see you back in the saddle at any rate.

Me too. I'm an early fan of Tyler's who was getting really burnt out on his action scores, but this one is fun and memorable and I keep going back to it. To my ears it's his best score in several years. If he can top this for Avengers next year that score might actually be something special.
