In Response to: You wanted an answer.... (Jorge Núñez)
I could discuss the film, but... it's not really worth the effort. Suffice to say, I liked it more than you did, but it did have many problems.

I think Phoenix alone should have been the main focus of one film and the "cure" the focus of another. Cramming them both together shortchanged them both. As did the sub-par script. If they make another, my pick would be Joss Whedon for writer/director:
Btw, his first "Astonishing X-Men" story is where the "cure" plot from the film originally came from.

I hope you're kidding. Wanting the Phoenix music to be less awesome is blasphemous and will not be tolerated.
> I´ll have to agree that Powell is a pretty decent composer, sometimes.
> And if gets you inspiration and hope, kudos to him.
I've never been the biggest Powell fan but I'll give him props when I think they're due. Actually, there's only two scores of his I really love. This one and Endurance.
> Wish he wasn´t given such lousy films.
Since around 90% of films are lousy, most composers usually get lousy films.
> An excesive score
If "excesive" means awesome, I agree.
