musicfromthemovies.com/article.asp?ID=278&newsmonth=1/3/2004 (Sorry, I can't post an HTML link) While I haven't heard the music personally, and I'm sure the author is slightly biased, I was looking forward to hearing what Yared had cooked up. Now, if the score was rejected due to quality it wouldn't bother me as much, but something about that story just seems really fishy. If the director is in absolute love with the music, why would he let it slip so easily due to some lame test screening (Which never seem to do any good in the first place)? Did Warner Bros. have veto power over any changes they requested after the test screening? And the descriptions from the focus group are just plain moronic... "overpowering and too big, old fashioned and dated the film"? Sorry, DATED THE FILM? Overpowering and too big? Is there such a thing for film music? Did "Ben-Hur" or "Star Wars" suffer from overpowering and big music? Anyways, it's a big bummer, no doubt about it. What makes things even worse is the replacement, Mr. James Horner, but I guess that's for another topic (Which I just happened to stumble upon, coincidentally enough). Oh, and if this belongs in some previously existing Troy thread, I apologize ahead of time and the moderators can feel free to lock.
