So he reviews CDs but not film scores? Sounds like if I want a frank discussion on the merits of the actual score, I'm going to have to look somewhere else. Of course I'm not going to buy the CD, but I'll watch the movie for its score.

The holier-than-thou review certainly won't get updated. Christian seems too much like a whiny baby, defending his writing style when people are just trying to point out that maybe, just maybe, his review is misinformed. There are outright, utterly false statements, such as, the Luke and Leia theme isn't in the score. The theme IS in the score, at the end! It's not on the CD, but big deal. Ask for a better CD. But I don't think any film score is good if it's not in context with its movies. The Luke and Leia theme would be pointless if all we'd heard for the last 30 years of Star Wars was its music -- and no characters or movies to connect them together. Is there room for a correction here? No, Christian just puts his childish "fanboy" on someone. He defends the length of his review as a reason why it's good. Sorry, length does not equal greatness, and responding back to criticism with baby-like taunts and teases is rude and unprofessional.

Film scores aren't film scores unless you judge them in a film context. Otherwise they're albums with track titles and you're supposed to fill in the visual blanks. Some might call this just straight-up classical music.

Though I've come to rely on good reviews from Christian since about 1999, I think I'm going to start looking elsewhere, or contribute to sites in some other way because this style of pompousness and rudeness is a trend I've seen increase in time at this site. It has been awful to watch the slow decline of quality at this site.

I anticipate a snarky reply back from the legions of ... yes ... fanboys for Christian.
