Who has time for Mallick when you could be watching Howard the Duck and the Rusty films? :D

I've seen "The New World", and parts of "Days of Heaven" that's it.

Spellbound - 7/10 - A pretty good film marred by Gregory Peck's stiff acting and Hitchcock's annoying compulsion to explain every tiny plot detail to the auidence. Wonderfully stylish direction and cinematography throughout; the Dali-designed dream sequence was interesting but too brief to make much of an impression. Middle-of-the-road Hitchcock, which is still better than the best of many other directors.

Groggy's pathological refusal to acknowledge an Oscar-winning score is once more in evidence. One of Miklós Rózsa finest, and perhaps the first use of Theramin in a Hollywood film, but for Groggy, none of this is worth mentioning.

Quite liked it, but I'm a diehard Peck fan. :D I still think it should've ended tragically to satisfy me.

So it's a good score because it uses a theramin? You can perhaps infer that I wasn't impressed by it due to my lack of mention.

Not what I said. The words "and" and "because" have different meanings.

You seem to think that I ought to have spent some time discussing that this was the first use of theramin (which admittedly I did not know, but also didn't really care about), for what reason? I'm not the Music Trivia Maven.

Since when has that been of any importance to you? :D

If this were a full-length review you might have a case Jinkies, but it's a quickly-typed "thoughts on just seeing the film" you should be able to infer you won't be getting a complete break-down.

Since you insist:

Miklos Rosza's score is mediocre.

Huh, and here I thought that it was The Day the Earth Stood Still.  You learn something everyday.   O0

There was a Russian film (Odna I believe) that used it as early as 1931.
