I still don’t get why people find Jim Carrey such a great actor, but I suppose that me missing his face-pulling talents is partly to blame for my ignorance. Morgan Freeman playing God, on the other hand, is so great, but then again he’s always great. Next time I’ll pray to him, makes things so much more amusing. Composer John Debney amazed me yet again. I absolutely love these kinds of scores, no clear themes but extremely diverse instrumentally and always something going on. Never thought he had it in him (I only knew his Iron Man 2 score until recently).
