    Great mood music throughout … but why oh why is it the background music always LOUD !!! You guys are the REAL professionals in this game; and we, the movie-going/TV watching public are eternally in your debt; BUT we would love you all the more if you could just tone it DOWN more than a fraction.

    “the urgent, pulsating music does an important job, too. There is a great story about Alfred Hitchcock who, when making his 1944 film ‘Lifeboat’, felt that the orchestral soundtrack was much too loud and intrusive. So he sent a curt note to the studio’s music department head, telling him people in the cinema would wonder where on earth all that music was coming from in the middle of the ocean …” Quite.

    I don’t agree at all. I’m a big fan of original scores and I like when the music is very audible in a movie. Some great scores look so tiny behind the VFX and it’s such a frustration for me (like some great moments in Man Of Steel that were just buried in the mix). You make me want to watch this movie even more!
