No, not at all!

> But...come on...the Omen? Honestly?

"The Omen" is by no means the masterpiece that Jerry Goldsmith's original is, but it's by no means a bad score, either. I found Beltrami's score to be a well-written, solid, enjoyable horror movie score, that ranks several notches above the whiz-bang-pop-swoosh-screech crap being written for such films nowadays. "M:I:III" is both intelligent and exciting, I don't see how anybody could have much of a problem with that one. "V for Vendetta" we can argue about, but I thought it was a very good score.

> Everything about that movie (including the useless score) was filth.

Frankly... erm... well, despite popular opinion, I thought the film was half-decent. And... well, Liev Schrieber is better for that role than Gregory Peck. Plus Mia Farrow, Pete Postelthwaite, David Thewlis, and Michael Gambon, all in fine form? C'mon, it's not so bad. Julia Stiles was the only real weak point, as far as I was concerned.

Oh, and I just listened to "Lady in the Water"... you can add that one to my list of strong scores for this year.

Back at ya later
