More than ever, Hollywood is behaving like some hyperactive, post-hip kid tapping a pencil in history class or being put to bedtime, envisioning those usually boring world changers and fairy tale cherubs as pumped-up, sword-swinging, axe-hacking and shotgun-toting avengers who are anything but the stuff of their parents’ musty books. The result of these absurdist revisionisms have given film scores some memorable monster mashes, as heavy metal guitars, ripping electric percussion and blasting orchestras have jammed with the far more sedate fiddles of Abraham Lincoln’s prairie, or the daintily plucked harps of Lewis C. Carroll’s Victorian England. Now it’s time […]Read On »
