Buy it... if you've been dying to hear Joseph Trapanese's enigmatic score for Attack of the Killer Robots, Part Five: Revenge of the Walmart Droids, a much-demanded work mistakenly repurposed for the film Project Power.

Avoid it... if you are heartbroken that this classy film was somehow adorned with music consisting of brooding, aggressive, and groaning synthetic pulses of once-organic but now mind-numbing, pitch-defying noise.

Project Power: (Joseph Trapanese) Finally, someone made a film about a pill that can give average church-goers five minutes of superhuman powers inspired by animal capabilities. In 2020's Project Power, Jamie Foxx chases around a near-future New Orleans trying to determine how these pills got loose from the usual military/industrial complex cabals. Not unexpectedly, those magnanimous pill-masters are using the impoverished, ethnic-minority citizens of hurricane-ravaged America to test the pills' unpredictable results. Of course, being typical Americans of poor judgement, a large portion of people who ingest the "power" pills use their five minutes to commit crimes against humanity and, in some thankful cases, destroy themselves in the process. Foxx's Delta Force character teams up with a New Orleans cop and female teenage rap artist to, well, at least marginally control the situation and get the lead's daughter back from the power-pill cartel. The film was met with criticism for not meeting anywhere near the full potential of the concept, as much could be dramatized in how people use five minutes of such power. Instead, Project Power devolves into the true American super-purpose: senseless killing for the sake of senseless killing. Woo-hoo! Composer Joseph Trapanese is no stranger to science fiction schlock of the modern era, transitioning from Tron: Legacy to a series of genre classics like the Divergent and Oblivion concepts. Holed up because of the pandemic in early 2020, Trapanese confessed to being thrilled about writing masculine killing music for this movie, stating, "I'm really grateful that while I was locked down, I was able to have some fun." He decided to do something no digital-era composer had ever attempted before: take organic sounds and manipulate them digitally to sound cool. "A lot of times, in scoring, you really have to be a music producer because you have to find cool sounds and you have to bring together different musicians, different variables," he said, hinting that his droning, highly manipulated score would benefit from the emphasis of a specific string, percussion, or synthetic element in each cue to emphasize the idea of power. "One of the things I even did was I took recordings of animal sounds because this pill unleashes hidden powers within your DNA. So I use these animal screams and animal calls as part of the musical textures. It was really fun to do something like that." That's right, folks, your cats and dogs will love this one!
