    There were days when war films did have little music like John Williams’ MIDWAY, Jerry Goldsmith’s PATTON and MACARTHUR or TORA!TORA!TORA! Even Elmer Bernstein did not overscore his war film efforts… I fear the new MIDWAY movie, not only because of all the CGI, but because there will most likely be wall-to-wall music…

      Amazingly, just watched the film and i think it was done very tastefully

      I have watched a lot of war films in my time, the modern ones and modern action films over score, but as modern scores go, it was just enough.
