I’m glad I finally watched it so that I can join the club bashing the original soundtrack releases. Very nice story, although I had some difficulties liking Rose and Jack in the beginning, but that changed a bit later. Also couldn’t help wondering why he was able to push her on that piece of wood three times, but then failed to climb on himself. Oh well. Kate Winslet’s American accent sounds fake, too, but I loved the class clashes in the story.

The score was exquisite. Horner had this gift of telling me everything with only a few notes. In The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, one piano chord sufficed, and when A Building Panic started here, the approaching disaster needed no further illustration whatsoever.
