Maybe I was a bit harsh in my assessment of the scores that have been released so far. As for the scores you mention, the only ones I enjoyed are Nanny McPhee (saw the film last year, but didn't realise the soundtrack wasn't released until January '06), X-Men: The Last Stand and The Da Vinci Code. I know I'm far too difficult to please, LOL, but some of the others just didn't impress me (particularly Superman Returns, which doesn't do anything for me outside the use of Williams' original themes).

It is the nature of Hollywood that the more high profile films are released in the latter half of the year (the Oscars have something to do with it, I'm told ), and the soundtracks are the same deal, given that most of them are attached to said films. So, yes, there is still hope yet .
