Comments about the soundtrack for Up (Michael Giacchino)

Edit | Delete
Lousy, depressing, violent music

I don't know who this Michael Giacchino is --I had never heard of him-- but his music is too emotionally intense and frightening for young children. There is a lot of focus on death as well which I think is unhealthy and scary for children. The old man in the film talks to his wife as if she can hear him in heaven (or wherever she went-- the couple did not appear to be the proper Christians they should be) but the music is too sad for redemption. The music only reminds you of marital death by sickness, miscarriage, lost dreams, lost hopes and thematic material that drug on and on and on and on and on... Where did it all go wrong?
