Clark, good stuff as usual. The John Powell score was an especially nice surprise both because it's not a film I would have seen/heard otherwise and because it was great to hear Powell put the electronics away and write a fabulous old-fashioned orchestral score.

Boy is Michael Giacchino ever on a roll! He amazes me with the way he adapts styles to fit whatever movie he's scoring, be it evoking Barry/Mancini for The Incredibles or doing various levels or sci-fi cheese in Cloverfield or Land of the Lost. I'm at the point where I pretty much have no idea what to expect, but I know it's going to be good.

As for your review for Transformers, I totally agree, and I like how you directed it at Michael Bay and others. I've never been a big fan of Bay and this film is no exception. Probably why I found this article on The Onion quite apt:

Michael Bay Signs $50m deal to f*** up Thundercats

(P.S. I was listening to the show as I wrote this, and your comment about watching Windows Media Player just made me choke on my drink.....)
