Well, the score mention for 47 RONIN certainly taught me something new - "A lack of faith in the material is suggested by the relentless use of Ilan Eshkeri's tumescent symphonic score". Tumescent?

Wow, in all my years of reading about film music, I don't think I've ever seen that word used before but apparently it means "bombastic", "pompous" or teeming with emotion. Sometimes I kind of like those qualities in my movie music... smile

Small thing, but THE BRIDGES OF TOKO-RI is a Korean War drama, not World War II.

Thank you for the correction. Watched it on TV decades ago so I didn't bother to do due diligence. Will fix.
