What? The Mummy Returns? ALAN SILVESTRI'S The Mummy Returns - uncreative, boring, repetitive? Have you LISTENED to "My First Bus Ride"? I challenge you to keep your foot still throughout that song, I know I can't. It's definitely one of the best adventure scores I've ever heard, with a great old-fashioned Korngoldian swashbuckle to it. The best adventure score since Cutthroat Island.

But you're right. Gladiator deserved four stars, if not five, for redefining the epic score at the very least. As for Thin Red Line, well, I'd rank it between three and four stars - it's not really something I can devote all my attention to, because my attention span is woefully tiny :S. Good background music, though, for doing something calm and creative .

Yeah, my name - Alans Zimvestri - might give away why I'm standing up for both composers they're brilliant men.
