    I've really been enjoying the score to Hidden Figures. It does seem strange to me how abruptly the tracks seem to end though. I feels like the album is over, but then another song begins to play. I just wish they would have transitioned the music a little better. In the film itself, I thought the music placement was odd, songs and score alike, that it would come out of nowhere. I like being able to appreciate the score much better on the soundtrack album. smile


    The score is OK-ish, but the film is absolute rubbish.
    I am extremely serious.
  1. I really enjoyed the movie. But true-story-underdog stories are my favorite, so that's not surprising. smile

    It's not that. It's the insistant rhetoric, following all possible clichéed, Hollywood tropes to the tee. The only good thing about it was Kevin Costner, IMO.

  2. I agree Kevin Costner did a great job. I've always like him as an actor. I also thought Jim Parsons was excellent too. He seemed very realistic, not just playing the "bad guy" for creating tension and drama in the movie, but I thought he played the role multidimensional enough to be very believable.
  3. I didn't care for that score. It didn't seem to do anything. I do look forward to seeing the film. I think it's an important story and should be more widely known.

    I thought Parsons was rather dreadful; I didn't buy his story arc at all -- at the end, he was all goodie-two-shoes, like in a TV movie from the 90s. But then again, I was never a big fan of his or THE BIG BANG THEORY.

    Sorry, don't mean to rain on your parade, but HIDDEN FIGURES really annoyed me in most aspects.

  4. It's totally fine Thor. I completely agree with you that it could have been better.
  5. Every time the track "Blood of My Blood" starts playing on Batman V Superman, it trips me up, because it sounds SO much like Gladiator, I think somehow the album ended and it started up Gladiator without my knowledge, lol. smile Does this sort of thing happen to anyone else?
  6. In case you haven't seen it, Hans Zimmer performed on the Late Show last night. It was pretty cool to see some film/tv music on one of these late night variety shows.

    Yeah, I love it when that happens (even though I'm not as enamoured by the PLANET EARTH II soundtrack, in particular).

    Nor am I, but there are a couple tracks from it that I come back to, and this is one of them.
  8. A Virus TI Access. Cool. I own a desktop version of that beast (sans keys).

    Cool, thanks for the link. Sounds nice, but not something I feel like I have to rush out to get. George Fenton did a pretty fantastic job with the first one.
  10. Yeah, it's not one of my favorite scores from last year, but it was cool to see some film music on a late night talk show. That's really uncommon. This is actually the first time I can remember ever seeing that.
  11. My review of THE BOSS BABY, for anyone who's interested:
