Also...There are no themes, no moods. His music is purely as filler; it doesn't aid the story in any way.Yay. More generic-epic-action music. So thrilling.
While people are entitled to opinions, both of you are wrong. Just thought I'd put that out there.
You sir, are correct.
Steve Jablonsky is a fantastic composer and has his scores are brought the perfect mood to each scene. Glad he's returning.
While I agree, I made the comment since the scores of the films do have a consistent, recognizable theme and specific pieces to set the mood of each scene and are far from generic. Their criticisms were the height of ignorance on the topic.
Claiming one's tastes in music are ignorant is rather, well, ignorant, dear sir. I've always been more of a fan of John Williams style of scoring, where the film can be told by simply listening to the music. Music sets the tone for everything and backs up all of the action, drama, and intensity (or lack thereof sometimes). The works in the Transformers movies never left me with any kind of impact at all. It felt, to me, as if you could copy and paste that music into any action movie, and it would fit...because it has a very generic feel to me. That's an opinion. Not an ignorant dismissal.
