I'm sorry we disagree on this, but it's ok really.

> ...for the reason I just mentioned.

Ok, let me say this: you keep saying "the score brings this and that to the movie......." but I'm saying, what does the movie bring to the score? It's not really a 2-way thing. The score supports the movie in various ways, adding emotional depth etc, but it doesn't go the other way. It may be true that you can think what scene is going on while whichever cue is playing, but it doesn't go much farther than that. I've bought a lot of scores that I hadn't seen the movie to at that point, like K-19. It was just pure, un-adultered music at that part...the movie didn't have anything to do with my musical experience yet.

It doesn't really matter. What matters is that you and I both agree to disagree with the original poster-guy.

Hey thanks too! And as for the respectful part, it kept getting more difficult to maintain, and insulting a film score in complete ignorance was the straw that broke the camel's back (or broke Joe's restraint).
