On Atonement

Atonement is another wonderful movie almost completely ruined by a ridiculous, annoying score. [The only movie that's suffered more in this category is True Romance, the movie that will forever change the way you feel about Jamaican steel drum ensembles.]

Note to the composer: If you're going to slather your score in typewriter sounds, then at least have the good taste to use manual typewriters (no electric typewriters, thank you) and manual players (no sampling software, thank you).

Better yet: don't go there in the first place.

Thank you.
