Listening to Big Fish first, glorious stuff.
Yeah I'm enjoying the heck out of this box. I've already listened to every disc. I even downloaded all the music to my iPod . So I can preserve the box. I've watched the dvd already as well. Right now I'm listening to the bonus music on the Skeleton USB drive. Still haven't read that enormous book. Trying to find a good time to read it. But I'm happy with it. it was worth gthe LONG wait, imho.

Strongly disagree with you on both scores. I hear haters and fans of Ang's Hulk (and of Elfman) praise Elfman's score to it. It's really unique to his other superhero scores. I think the score enhances a lot of scenes. Tracks like

"Hulk Out"

"A Man Again"

"The Lake Battle"

You can't tell me those tracks are dull. I didn't even include the Main Title, which is great itself, but isn't the only great cue on the soundtrack.

Elfman's Spiderman score had a lot of impressive cues, imo. Main Titles, Costume Montage, Revenge, City Montage, Parade Attack... I can go on and on and on. That is one underrated score, imo. And doesn't deserve any of the negative criticism it gets from the fans , but oh well. I'll take Elfman's Spiderman scores over any generic MV/RC score anytime and anyday.
