Let the war of "No!" and "Yes!" begin.


I'm on the "No!" side.

Damn, I don't like that every magical childhood book is getting the dark and angsty treatment right now...

Would have loved for this to have gotten a Golden Compass or Stardust type of adventure score.

AWIT is actually a pretty dark and angsty book. Meg is downright moody, iirc. (I haven't read this again in something like 20 years.)

OTOH, A Wind in the Door was just as whacked out when I was 28 as it was when I was 10 and I have never been able to make it through A Swiftly Titling Planet.

Oh, and I love Djawadi, so this might be cool.

The score was mentioned in Entertainment Weekly's pan of the film:

"So A Wrinkle in Time hits that unfortunate un-sweet spot common to big-budget science-fiction/fantasy, where the spectacle feels more summarized than experienced. (Not helping much: Ramin Djawadi’s oddly terrible score, screaming emotions like an overgrown thought balloon covering up its own illustration.)"


Uh, oh. A film score with "emotions." We can't allow that in this day and age, now can we?

I'm not a fan of Djawadi so EW's assessment of the score might change that.

Does anybody know if Jonny Greenwood left "A Wrinkle in Time" before writing and/or recording his score, or was a completed score by him rejected? In any case, a Greenwood fantasy score would've been fascinating.

Best I can tell, Greenwood recorded his score overseas (as opposed to Ramin who recorded in LA) several months before Ramin was announced as the new composer.

Shocking, I say, just a shocking and a totally unprecedented series of events.

Given his work on last year's The Mountain Between Us and (especially) The Great Wall, I'm willing to give Djawadi the benefit of the doubt.

A Ramen Noodles score sucks? Shocker!

Sad to hear that Djawadi got this one -- was hoping for a quality orchestral score. Forget it.

Just curious, what is your source?

Yeah, I just don't believe that Jonny Greenwood did anything for a movie like this.

Samples sound horrible, as expected. Missed opportunity.

Have you seen the trailer? Nothing about this looks good.
