This is exactly what I'm talking about. Another filmtracks snob...

So whoever has enjoyed Inception the score just needs to listen to more music, they haven't heard enough, their enjoyment is a mislead enjoyment? They need to be "educated". Perhaps in your reply you should make up a starter list of where they should begin, in order to start their journey of musical fulfilment. So that they might never again appreciate the unfulfilling.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

For you information I enjoyed Inception, I also enjoy the scores to Chinatown, Troy (rejected), Alien 3, Angels in America, Se7en, Benhur to name a few. Do I need to hear more music? Am I misguided in my musical tastes of film? do I need readucation?
