And I'll add: it still bears a strong smell of Malpaso cheapie.

It's perfect timing, large one...

I wouldn't say that not remembering a score or even vaguely being impressed by one is necessarily a negative factor for the final judgement on a film. But surely, when I like a music, or at least it is well-made,  I usually remember at least the refrain.  It just didn't happen this time.

Actually, I haven't seen this film, so I'm speaking only theoretically.
I didn't mean that one should remember the score. I also don't (like with score to Akahige, which is wonderful, but was replaced in my head by another piece of music, which is a bit similar and which I know for years.)
Remembering the score after the first hearing usually means for me it's quite crap, made only to be remembered... not everytime, but such songs you have to remember and that stay in your head for days are really terrible.



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

That could mean you're not discriminating. I think that if a tune stays in your head it is for good reasons (read: craftsmanship) in spite of the movie. For example, Nicolai's tune for They Called Him Cemetery: I remember little of the movie (though it was good) but the whistling tune stayed in my head as soon as I heard it. I liked it. The same goes (I name the first that comes to mind)  Watch out We're Mad or Borsalino. As bad as a tune can be, if it stays in your head at first hearing it must be for good reasons, though you may not know it. Many times those good reasons are not to be found in the movie.

There are tunes that stay and are really good, yes, and I love them; but there are others, that... you know, they're good only as craft, but nothing else in them for me... it's hard to explain it, but such simple catchy songs you cannot get rid of, though you know they are stupid, that's a terrible thing. If you know such songs...
But I really always enjoy good score.

An indictment if ever there was one. When someone recommends a film to me but they are unable to say anything positive about the score I know not to take their recommendation seriously.

I love the movie. COncerning the score:
Am B G Am

There is only ONE tune during the whole movie, a very powerful one. And the repetition makes it become ever more powerful. If you don't remember it, listen to the music of the trailer (the trailer is avaible everywhere on the web)...
