Exactly, the whole thing meshes together nicely.

The main title music from FC is very beautiful.

I can only vaguely remember the music from any of them apart from FC, which I am very familiar with. Generations, FC and the new movie are the only ones I have access to. My Grandad has them all, which is the only opportunity I ever have to watch the other movies. I seem to remember liking the score of TUC...

But Michael Giacchino's score... Well, it has everything I like about music. There is just not enough of it!! It should be made into a symphony...

Music can make or break a film. With a better, more distinctive, elative score: Nemesis could have been half decent. Similarly, the new film would have fallen completely flat had MG's score not been absolutely suited to the directing and the production. I don't think John Williams could have scored this film as well, and I don't think Hans Zimmer could have either. Thomas Newman, perhaps, but his soundtracks tend to be more muted in colour, if you'll forgive synæsthetic parlance...

Okay, I just paraphrased the film. Hmm.
