Buy it... if you seek a highly generic fantasy environment that does not tax your brain to any level, Ramin Djawadi supplying satisfyingly predictable and sometimes lovely ethereal tones that remain accessible during nearly their entire length.

Avoid it... if you demand to exercise yourself with any meaningful complexity in this genre of film music, for the constructs here are sparse, the tempos are slow, and the textures are mostly familiar.

Djawadi
Djawadi
A Wrinkle in Time: (Ramin Djawadi) Repeating many of the same errors of 2015's Tomorrowland, Disney clearly missed the mark with its 2018 adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's 1962 novel, A Wrinkle in Time. The film marked the first feature of a $100 million budget ever helmed by a woman of color, and while its visuals dazzled as expected, its ethereal, detached story failed to engage audience interest. The young daughter of an astrophysicist is joined by her friends on a galactic journey to find her father when he invents a machine that teleports him to a distant world. Three celestial beings in the form of wise women assist the children along their path as they seek to defeat an evil being on another world and free the main character's father. Unfortunately, A Wrinkle in Time didn't package this tale in a way audiences could care about, and some viewers were even offended by Disney's "sanitization" of the Christian elements of the book in the studio's efforts to streamline the fantasy appeal. Regardless of the reason for the failure, the movie was soon poised to lose hundreds of millions of dollars, making it a notably disastrous misfire for the studio. Although there were rumors that British rock musician-turned-composer Jonny Greenwood was attached to A Wrinkle in Time, the assignment ultimately went to Hans Zimmer offshoot Ramin Djawadi, whose popular music for the television series "Game of Thrones" had caught the ear of director Ava DuVernay. While Djawadi has, like many graduates of Remote Control Productions, written a handful of children's animation scores through the years, he is best known for his edgier and bombastic flair, a sound that ironically guided very little of A Wrinkle in Time. Instead, listeners are treated to an extended homage to 1990's James Horner and 2000's Thomas Newman and Mychael Danna mannerisms, yielding an amalgamation of non-offensive fantasy tones that serves its topic with sufficient but rather forgettable ambience and accomplishes all its tasks faithfully without pushing any boundaries. It's a completely harmless score, a pleasant diversion for a rainy day, but one can easily get the impression that this music, like the film itself, could have and should have been so much more.
