  1. Love Junkie XL’s work, but Zach’s Snyder’s work is pretty mediocre.

    Sucker Punch looked like a middle-aged guy’s fantasy video game. Justice League put me to sleep after the first hour, because it looked like a video game, instead of a movie, and nothing was happening.

    1. > Zach’s Snyder’s work is pretty mediocre.

      yes, but “300” had cutting-edge cgi. that film alone makes him one of the greatest movie directors.
      the same is true for paul hardcastle and “19.” that song alone makes him one of the greatest synth pop artists.

        1. it was somewhat islamophobic, yes, even homophobic, i give you that. but visually breathtaking. script was great, too.

  2. nooooo. wrong timing to release that video now. junkie´s newest project, godzilla vs. kong, will be released in 3 days on hbo max. i´d like to have seen a featurette about that film´s score now.

  3. Everyones’ a critic. The sheer amount of work put into all those films, sound and vision, is worthy of serious respect, no matter your highly subjective judgement of their artistic merit.
