I'm not sure if this is something I share with all you other film score listeners, but I personally feel that having a interest in this music can sometimes be a bit of a plague. It seems that whenever I see a movie my mind often separates the score from the film so it takes out the whole purpose of the score supporting the film. Now don't get me wrong I am still very capable of enjoying a film, but when it come to a score like WotW that is designed to be subtle it is the raw music that I hear rather than the music as support to the the emotional context of the film and I can be a bit disapointed by what I hear. And I'm sure with a genius like John Williams writing it, it has to be a beautiful expiriance for the average film goer.
Write back your thoughts.
Either way,fantastic movie!
