'Thor' - Patrick Doyle
Besides the stunning CGI effects and the stellar cast the storyline was not an a epic LOTR narrative. Yet I feel the saving grace - except for Chris Hemsworth's amazing physique - was the film's score.
Exceptionally aesthetically sound crafting in terms of harmonic and melodic constructions creating a fluent music language moving in sync with the visual narrative.
Mr Doyle is known for his thoughtful and sensitive score for 'Sense and Sensibility', and this is what sets him apart from other Hollywood scorers, in that his score literally co-exists with the visual narrative, instead of merely commenting on it.
