Yesterday I watched Dragonslayer and I wholeheartedly agree with Christian here. A good film score isn't recognized by the viewer, it supports the images by enhancing the right emotions at the right time. While watching Dragonslayer I had always the music in my face, contrasting the really stunning landscape images with dissonant, irritatingly un-epic arrangements and melodies. The music in the scary scenes is quite good but not above average. So if Mr. North wanted to bring some avantgarde music to the movies he failed miserably. Dragonslayer would have profited much of a Goldsmith or Horner score.
