If he had done Pirates of the Caribbean...

I can't help but think that if Silvestri had done the score to Pirates (as it says he was originally planned to do in Clemmensen's review), then he might have actually produced a similar score to this Van Helsing one (much like if Michael Kamen's 'X-Men' would be the same if he had done 'The Avengers'). Obviously, the Gothic aspect would be toned down, and the score would have a more Pirate-y feel, but i still think the scores would have been similar - what does anyone else think?

Does anyone else find it odd that - in my opinion at least - a rather enjoyable film such as Pirates had a 2-star score, whilst a 2-star film such as Van Helsing got a 31/2 - 4 star score?

As is life.
