See, I agree with that, but that's not the way you wrote it. You said that music for a movie and the movie itself are independent entities, which is untrue.

Well, this may be true in a select few cases, but I can't really think of a movie off the top of my head that was bad but had a great soundtrack, or good but had a bad soundtrack. The score of a picture is so important in effecting the emotional impact of the piece that it's usually impossible to separate them.

That's what I was trying to say. The movie itself should in no way reflect on a

...for the reason I just mentioned.

No, I took great pains to interpret your post correctly. Perhaps the error was in the delivery and not the reception.

Whatever the case, I appreciate your respectful tone (for the most part) to an outrageous post. Thanks for keeping your cool!

Cordially - Dan
