Everyone's like, "Oh this score is so boring and there are only a couple of good tracks." Well, John Williams didn't write this music so you morons would have a good CD to add to your collection. He wrote it because it fits the movie! In fact I doubt that any other film composer could have done as good of a job as Williams did. And also the CD was probably released so Dreamworks could make more money off this movie. So if you idiots want a CD full of nice concert suites then go buy a compliation album, you dirty whores!

I think what the original poster meant was that Christians are idiots.

Yes, so tell me what was the purpose of releasing the CD if Williams wrote the score only to fit the movie??? But it's Williams stuff... Nevertheless it's an disturbing, interesting and intriguing score, but that doesn't make it an easy listen. And the last sentence You could keep in Your personal diary...

And this sort of comment is one of the main reason I'm not including a comment feature on the score review website I'm putting together!

Yes, he did write the music for the movie. That's generally how it's done with film scores. But these sites that review film scores are generally reviewing how the music works on an album, on its own, with less focus on how it works in the movie. It may work brilliantly in the movie -- I don't know, as I've very little interest in seeing the movie -- but the reason I read these reviews is to help me decide whether it's worth it for me, a film score lover, to invest in the music divorced from the film.

And, even without having heard the score I'll say I'm not so sure that no composer could have done as well. Williams has done some good horror scores, but it's not exactly his forte.
