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'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 wasnt 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.
