• In Response to: That review is poor. (Edmund Meinerts)

Reading the review I was convinced he'd give it two stars. He couldn't even help complimenting the Electro theme. And while the main theme is "hokey" as he said at least there's a level of craftsmanship in it absent from Zimmer's Batman and Superman scores, as well as a love theme, no matter how sparse. I was genuinely surprised to see the * at the end. This is clearly a superior score to MoS and at least the equal of TDK trilogy scores. I'd give it *** for the score and ** in the context of the franchise for abandoning Horner's themes, and a ** overall. Getting mad at the difference between * and ** may seem trite but as you said, there's a clear differential between trash like 300 and a score like this, which if seriously flawed is still functional and at times inspired. This review recalls his ignoring of all the positive qualities of the Pirates scores even if those were flawed too.
