How can you say that the ST 4 theme sucked?!? It's one of the best soundtracks of all time. Granted, I understand if its not your cup of tea, but say that it sucks way out of line.

I'm inclined to agree with him... the movie itself was great, but the music was severely lacking in grandeur, or style. It's overall tone was cheesy. Ironically, while the subsequent movie's plot left a great deal to be desired, its music was quite good.

8--Not too much nasty techno augmentation to create a "future-ness". Pure orchestra baby.

ST4 theme sounded too much like a score for a comedy film. Totally wrong and didnt fit with star trek IMO

Dont know why but the theme sounded like it should of been in a batman film. Generations always bugged me to. It was too much like the run of the mill episodic generic tng ds9 music and not a big budget star trek film like we got in FC. Goldsmith should of done the score for this film not McCarthy.

I still have to say TWOK soundtrack, the best overall.

Cant really choose between TWOK and TMP. TMP had more of an effect on me.

TWOK for me displays more of the themes of the film better.

Rosenman's ST4 soundtrack was not, by far, the worst of the series. While there were bits of it that were a little corny, it fit the overall theme of the film.

I used to cling to Horner's soundtracks for ST2 and 3 as the end-alls but I rediscovered Goldsmith's brilliant scoring and his are now my favorites (except for Insurrection). That score was uncomfortably reminiscent of "St. Elmo's Fire."

Giacchino is a great choice to compose this score. Something like his turn on "The Incredibles" is what I'm looking for, for Trek XI.

Yes, the ST 4 soundtrack lacked the grandeur of its typical soundtrack, but that's what I liked about it. It was different and unique. As for its tone being cheesy, well, I think comical is more appropriate and that was the whole point. It was light-hearted and good fun.
