I disagree with Broxton even more, don't bring him into this.
Look, Christian gives his opinion and I give mine. Ask HIM to warrant what he says against the score's obviously thematic inconsistency. Just because it's better than it should be doesn't mean that it's 4 stars. 4 stars? One step down from Conan and E.T.? Give me a break. 3 stars. 'nough said.
