The prequels are pretty unnecessary. I would have expected less of a hype on, I'm sorry I have to say this again, pretty boring movies and mediocre scores
You are of course right about what you say. The "pseudo-gothic" comment was made on Van Helsing, though. Sorry if that wasn't clear. LotR of course needed the chorus, I would have been even more disappointed if Shore hadn't used any
