Buy it... if you appreciate the misty atmosphere of rolling piano, tingling percussion, distant woodwinds, and light strings in James Horner's The Spitfire Grill.

Avoid it... if Horner's restrained, but still slightly syrupy romance themes, especially with heavy use of synthetic choir, could give you the same rashes you experienced with Titanic... or if you expect to hear the Wagner or Mozart music that replaced Horner's score in the film.

Horner
Horner
The New World: (James Horner) So long as Hollywood continues to glaze over the facts in the actual history of Pocahontas and John Smith, movies like The New World will baffle and frustrate historians. Director Terrence Malick's fourth feature film since debuting in the early 1970's takes a position a little closer to reality than the Disney animated feature ten years prior, but still misses many of the basics. For instance, the real Pocahontas was only nine years old when the Englishmen arrived, and Smith was a far older, more rotund man than actor Colin Ferrell. In the interest of politically correct marketability, Malick shrugs off many of those inconsistencies and decides to approach the film exactly as you expect him to: from the perspective of nature. Malick's most recent two films have shown humanity as an element of nature rather than vice versa, and The New World is no different. For its two hours, nature is its leading star, and the colonists and natives are explored as awestruck, curious peoples at the mercy of the environment. For his film The Thin Red Line, Malick utilized the broad strokes of Hans Zimmer's capable score, and although Zimmer was expected to rejoin Malick for The New World, blockbuster score veteran James Horner would embark on the challenging and ultimately frustrating journey. Representing Horner's fourth score in the latter half of 2005, The New World would end up a disaster of an ever-changing post-production edit of the film, with the overall length cut from 150 minutes to 130 minutes --reportedly without sacrificing much actual content-- and a significant amount of Horner's original work removed from the picture. Portions of Horner's work were thus replaced by Wagner's "Das Rheingold" and Mozart's "Piano Concerto No.23" in the final product, and all indications point to Malick as the source of discontent.
