I didn’t get to see the movie until last night. Even though it lasted two-and-a-half hours, it felt like a mere 90 minutes. I enjoyed almost everything about the film—except for the unexplained motivations and inexplicable occurrences that detracted from the intended thrills of the third act.

For me, the greatest thrills were provided by Ottman’s masterful integration of new and used material. The music is absolutely astounding! I’m especially fond of the additional themes Ottman composed for Superman and Luther. Definitely my choice for the highlight score of the year thus far. The music hasn’t left my head since I left the theater. I just finished my first listen to the CD and am still in awe.

Here’s to John Ottman, who did what was close to impossible.

NP: Superman Returns
