    Synthpunk, ‘Chinatown’ has music by Jerry Goldsmith, not Dave Grusin.

    It’s one of the great Goldsmith scores in fact. A timeless classic, just like the movie. Who else but Goldsmith, for example, would have the imagination and courage to use as unexpressive and limited an instrument as the guiro to illustrate one of Chinatown’s complex narrative’s main characters with. Not a melody, or a motif, nor an harmonic sequence, not even a specific rhythm ... just that unpleasant, nasty rasping sound of the guiro, to capture the sinister presence of Noah Cross (John Huston) in music. Stroke of Goldsmith genius, that.

    Just watched Kingsman 2 - The Golden Circle. Loved it. So much fun and completely over the top and ridiculous. Right up my street and the music was great. Just realised it was Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson.

    Your brain wants to initial slag them off as a Bond ripoff but they are well done.

    Ah man I haven't once thought about Bond when watching either the first or sequel. They are their own thing and can't remember the last time a couple of films just made me laugh and felt so much fun! I'm instantly buying this on Blu Ray in hope for an extras that may come with it! :)

    IT completely exceeded my expectations, which were actually pretty high. I think it accounted for like 75% of all box office sales (in the states) on opening weekend. I saw IT twice in theaters, which is something I normally don't do.
