I stumbled on to Filmtracks review of John William's score for HP1 while idly surfing the web to see Fan reaction to the music of recent HP films. Of course everyone is entitled to their options, but gad, I've never read a review with which I DISAGREED more.
Whoever wrote the FT review should have his 'reviewer-credentials' examined. This score (for HP1) will likely go down as one of JW's most memorable and appropriate theme music (next to SW). In contrast to Filmtrack review, I thought JW captured beautifully the unique 'magical' nature of JK's story.
Sadly the recent HP movies (4 & 5) have been progressively worse in everything from directing to following book plot lines, scripting and including music scores. HP5 was pathetic in that regard. I know a lot of folks who agree.
Please - bring back Chris Colubus, Steve Kloves and John Williams. Save us from inept reviews like that from Filmtracks.
