there are two things I really dislike in film and TV…
the over-use of music in films and TV.
I was watching the original ‘the thin red line’ last night and the music was not only overwhelming, but very annoying and distracting.
the film had potential, but was so un-realistic, it distracted from the story. the 1998 version is brilliant.
music can be both a powerful and enhancing part of films. sometimes the movie soundtrack can be just as good as the film. there are many instances where I’ve had a copy of the soundtrack before I see the film.
this 007 movie was one of the worst movies I’ve seen with an ‘over-use’ of music.
one of the wost ‘hand-held’ films I’ve seen is REC.
and it was such a pitty, as this film was really good, otherwise.
