He's not a Hack

Like so many composers that came and went in the 80s - hell, even since the inception of film scoring - his music is what it is. The projects he takes on are not as "blockbustery" as you might say, and there's a reason for that, yes.

BUT if you're gonna review the man's score work dont go by other's works. Unless you plan on judging by his own work, at least watch the film first, find out where each cue sits in the movie, develop a feel for the score through acclimation, and then make your criticism. Reason I say this is because this review seems to be more about Remote Control hate and Poledouris worship than Tyler Bates and his craft. Meanwhile you have a film that was tossed into the August release month for a reason - because nobody really gives a crap about the film.

And to call the guy is plaigarist is ass-inine. Really. Look at James Horner who plaigerises his OWN damn work and gives you the same score for every film he does. This plaigerist rant is irrelevent.

I think the reviewer would probably fare better reviewing scores he likes rather than the ones he doesnt like, because all the reviews so far are total negativity. Plus Im sure theres scores out there he might appreciate more...
