I still can't believe this is being directed by the man who made "X-Men Origins Wolverine." I would've taken Ratner over him...

directed by Gavin Hood?? I didnt know it!

hopefully he has more freedom this time and gets better critics than with Origins Wolverine. Fox was the main reason that movie was like it was

Horner sucks, after the soundtrack he made for The Amazing Spider-Man he should never be allowed to score movies.

Hope this film is good. I love the books.

James Horner sucks? The Oscar winning composer behind such excellent scores as Titanic, Star Trek: Wrath Of Khan and Avatar? Just because he does one less than stellar soundtrack doesn't mean that he's suddenly awful.

The TASM score gets better with each listen, IMO. The opening track and the score in the scene SuspenseSmith posted are particularly unique.

Raimi Spider-man theme is irreplaceable.
