Hey, listen, MI:III wasn't terrible. I'll give you that. But it certainly wasn't memorable in any way either and even right after I came out of the theater I couldn't remember a lick of it (and I was really trying!). But the Omen, oh man, Garbage movie with great actors. I don't understand how they all got attached. It is just a terrible script with absolutely NO development, nauseatingly stupid characters, no arc, and no surprises and a painfully mediocre ending. It was like Final Destination V or something. And any score that tries to accent it is, necessarily, nearly as bad (if not worse).
(It did have some good cinematography though...there I said something nice
