Great review christian! But i disagree with some of your views...   Monday, February 22, 2010 (6:42 p.m.) 

This review pretty much hit my opinion. But as many have pointed out, can you really blame the composer for the commercial release of the score? Is that not injust?

Also, when you mention that this does not deserve any awards, I must disagree with you. This year's two big score I believe are Avatar and Up. I believe both should recieve awards, however you must look at certain points. Up is completely original wherareas Avatar is simply another compilation of all of Horner's other award winning melodies. In terms with originality, does not Up deserve credit?

I believe that the awards should be split between the scores. Up is good and deserves many of the awards it recieves, but perhaps it should be recieving ALL of the awards it recieves as I fear the score may soon become overrated. Perhaps the oscar will decide this fate.

A great fan of your work Chrisitian!

I think the trouble here is that WHAT A SCORE DOES FOR A MOVIE also should and does impact the award-giving. I'm not saying that awards are generally given out to those that deserve them (they're not), but I am saying that Up's score did far more for its film (and is indeed the core-identity of a brilliant film) than Avatar's great but generic score did for it.

I agree with you. Most of the awards for this score are based on the key use of the music within the movie itself. And everyone is talking about the montage scene at the beginning and the moment when Carl looks back at the book. These moments strike a perfect emotional chord, and the score has a HUGE part to play in that. The rest of the score is very nice, a solid effort, but those moments are key to the film - and I think that is what is causing all the acclaim.

Don't get me wrong, "Up" is a great score, but not the best I think I've heard all year. However most of these awards are looking closer at how the score works with and for the movie - not just as a listen by itself.
