Kudos to you nitwits. Attacking Mamet, Morrincone and Costner.
I did not attack Mamet or Costner. I thought they both did a fine job with the writing and the acting.
I think that the Score - yes, by Morricone - was out of place in parts - a lot of parts. When you bring in instruments that would not have existed at the time, unless it is orchestral music that has a classic feel, it seems out of place. Would you use electric guitars or synthesizers in Gladiator? No? Then don't use them in The Untouchables either. That is my point.
It isn't that the music is bad, it just doesn't fit the era.
