He's not the only one here like that. It's truly amazing.

Hmmm....this was one of the more disappointing Zimmer scores I've heard in recent years. But I haven't seen the film yet, so I'll postpone some evaluation for when I have.

I thought the score was very effective in the movie, which is outstanding and worthy of all the praise it has received.

Praise???!!!... I can't find a word for something between disappointing and dreadful. And to make things worst, it sounds like some leftovers from Dunkirk, which already was annoying on its own.

Speaking of DUNKIRK, it could be one of those situations again with WIDOWS -- a score I found to be absolutely genius in the film, but which didn't work so well on album for me. I know when I've seen the film.

Marcus / My Son are the only redeeming features of the score.

Have you seen the movie, or have you just listened to the music on its own and decided to crap on it because crapping on everything is the "FSM Way"?

That's not true. I'm just saying this is awful. And I'm not the only one. You may think whatever you want. But the premise "it works in the film therefore is good" is a mediocre excuse. We've had this discussion many times and I don't want to have it again.

Oh, we're having this discussion again. In part because your reading comprehension is no good.

I said the score is effective in the movie. I then called the movie outstanding. If you can point to where I said the score "works in the film therefore is good", please do, but I don't think that's something you will be able to do.

To be fair, a good score should do more than just 'work' in a film. It should ideally ELEVATE the whole thing. Which I think DUNKIRK most definitely did. Remains to be seen if WIDOWS does the same, but I have my doubts at this point. It does not have the ingenious idea that DUNKIRK did, and seems to be fairly straightforward rhytmical effects for a crime movie. I'll hopefully get to see it before Christmas, and return with a better overview then.

Widows is also VERY sparsely scored, unlike Dunkirk.

Alright, you're saying "the score is effective in the movie". You're not saying "it's good". So there's nothing to discuss.

I’ll never understand the need to post about composers one doesn’t even like. It’s clear that you hate Zimmer’s work. Great.

I don’t particularly like Danny Elfman, but you’ll never see me going out of my way to dump all over him in a thread where people are enjoying his work.


But hey, if that’s how you get your kicks then knock yourself out.

You don't like Elfman? Fuck you, man! Get out of this Zimmer thread with your Elfmanegativity!

Only like, Midnight Run and a handful of the stuff he did with Walker.

I wish I could get into his stuff from the past 10 years, beyond the Alice theme. It doesn’t sound like ELFMAN is into his stuff anymore.

I picked this album along with several other 2018 score releases and found it to be one of least memorable listens from Zimmer in some time. I found it utterly dull, from the opening dirge to the annoying, constantly "clicking" suspense cues.

Weird how people hated this (which I thought was okay), but couldn't say enough good things about the giant eyeroll that was Dunkirk.
