Buy it... if you have a really strong urge to feel awful about your life and the world, because this film score is a recipe for suicidal thoughts or, at the very least, inspiration to finally murder your troublesome mother-in-law.

Avoid it... if your appreciation for the challenging application of intelligent, futuristic spaghetti-western music into an alternate superhero universe isn't worth the pain of hearing highly emotional scenes badly underscored with aimless muck.

Beltrami
Beltrami
Logan: (Marco Beltrami/Various) Whether you believe 2017's Logan, technically the tenth "X-Men" film entry, to be a refreshing change to the franchise's normal operations or, conversely, a grim bore of an alternative universe gone horribly wrong, you have to admit that it's at least different. Director James Mangold returns to helm his second movie dedicated to Marvel's Wolverine character, this time taking inspiration from the "Old Man Logan" series of comics to convey the later years of the character. Set in a dystopic future, Logan exists as a futuristic spaghetti western with defeated superheroes as the protagonists. It's one of those films that kills off beloved characters under the pretense that the actors portraying them over the past few decades are too old to continue in the roles and need retired in some emotionally gripping manner. That premise works unless the setting and deaths are tragically misplayed, and Logan has the potential to leave your average superhero enthusiast adrift. Critics mostly loved the approach, however, hailing Mangold's violently depressing vision of the Marvel Universe in comparisons to famous films of adversity that have nothing in common with standard heroism. Given that Logan occupies an alternate universe, it should come as no surprise that Mangold advised his recurring musical collaborator, Marco Beltrmi, to largely ignore the genre and the franchise's past when concocting a score for the film. This choice is shallow and stupid when you think about it, because the true test of a competent alternate universe adaptation is how prior associations with a character or circumstance are twisted into new situations. You don't abandon Wolverine's past; you force it to face new challenges. Of course, Beltrami didn't pay much heed to Harry Gregson-Williams' music for X-Men Origins: Wolverine when he scored 2013's The Wolverine, so perhaps expecting any semblance of continuity is asking for too much. Beltrami and his usual crew, led by Buck Sanders, approached Logan with a totally clean slate, aside from western-associated sources of inspiration from the director. It's no surprise that Beltrami's 3:10 to Yuma, among the composer's similar genre works, guide Logan's experimental demeanor. Unfortunately, in a rush to make the score "different," Beltrami and his crew once again failed to grasp the emotional core of the story, leaving the music badly limp and underdeveloped when it was needed the most.
