100% accurate review of a disappointing score!

Nice review is all I can say. You pretty much pointed out everything that I find wrong with this score too and by the sounds of it you sound as annoyed about it as I do.

Zimmer needs to seriously go back to Harmony class and learn some chromatic harmony so he can maybe move away from depressing d minor.

Everything about this score just screams of simplicity and its boring at best. Anyone could have done better than Zimmer.

Just think of what kind of scores these could be if Zimmer left and James Newton Howard scored them. He's absence was greatly noted.

Hopefully some day soon, people will finally realise that Zimmer is actually just full of himself and that his music has really no meaning.

The score barely achieves 2 stars in my books!

Back to the Amazing Spiderman for me as far as I'm concerned, a much better, intelligent score!

All the best!
