Re: Scores To Marvel Films: Which do you like the most?
To me a bad movie shouldn't rub off on the score. I hear a lot a people love the Spidey 3 score the most of the trilogy and it's attached to a bad movie. I hear people tear the movie Hook to shreds. Yet John Williams gets high praise for his score to it. The movie never ruins the enjoyment of the score for them. So why should X3 hurt Powell's great score. Which is probably the best thing about X3.
That's almost bias if you like the score (X2) better than another score (X3) b/c it's attached to a better movie. Eventhough you both actually liked the X3 score better musically than X2's. I don't care. Great music is great music. Don't let the movie it's attached to rub off on the score. Especially if the score is better than the movie. To me that just proves Powell was trying to convey what the movie was trying and failed to achieve. That's part of what film music is suppose to do. At least for the movie it's written for.
