I just got the score to my favorite movie, The Mexican. It one thing when you buy a score that you like. It's another thing when you buy a score that you like as much as the movie.
This score is great. Usually I don't like mexican music or scores (that's not raceist, I just don't like the music) but after seeing the movie and how the score backs up the movie, I love it.
four themes dominate the score. A main theme, which is a cool mexican march that shines when a chours backs up the trumpet. A second theme which is a more of a comedy theme that backs up the oddness of Jerry (Brad Pitt). A very pleasant love theme that is sadly underused. And finally, Jerry heroic them, my favorite. This theme is a pure spoof of Clint Eastwood's theme for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Then again, so is Jerry.
Get this score, it's the best comedy score that I've herd in a long time.
