When I'm reading your reviews, I'm every time disappointed : every original score, every unusual music is always bad for you !! When I saw that you put a very good mark to King Scorpion (which is a Don Davis/Silvestri copy) I am furious against you.
I'm sorry for my english, but I'm french and really angry.
I think that thinking that a score is a pure or not, is totally normal and I've nothing to say. But sometimes, you have to say, even you don't like, that it's great, grand or genious. I don't like (I rather say that I hate...) Shore's Lord of the Ring, but I have to admit that it's powerful and good.
Titus is clearly Goldenthal's finest work (but I prefer Final Fantasy), it's dark, it's gloomy, it's jazzy but it is so close from the movie that I have the impression that Goldenthal follow his wife's work (Julie Taymor is his wife) from the beginning !! It's almost perfect and it's so close from the movie that, I think that it is the best exemple of collaboration.
