Samples sound interesting. The action stuff sounds far more high-octane than anything we've heard from the composer so far. Bit of Thomas Newman in the softer parts.

After listening to Pride and Prejudice again I'm really starting to get a good feel for Marianelli's writing style. In this case he moulds the music to the film, a period piece, to evoke chamber music quite often and otherwise very English-sounding piano melodies, which always leave me stunned. I love his incorporation of the piano in this score and in the newer film Darkest Hour.

Bumblebee feels like a score contorted to fit a certain mould, and when it isn't drowned out by explosions and headache-inducing sound effects, it's left with two themes that serve as connective tissue between the audience and the characters. When it's just doing it's own quirky thing, or playing with Charlie's theme it's lovely, but I feel it was certainly a shift for Marianelli to have to write 2018 action music to fill in what little soundscape there is.

Last september took place in Rome the concert Novant'Ennio to celebrate Morricone's 90th birthday. For that concert Nicola Piovani and Dario Marianelli composed homage pieces dedicated to the Maestro. I'll leave you below the one composed by Marianelli that is based on a theme he wrote for Third Person (2013), for the story that takes place in Rome. It is heartbreaking.

"Piccola Serenata per il novantesimo compleanno di un giovane compositore" (dedicated to Ennio Morricone)

Director, Carlo Rizzari
Accordion, Pietro Roffi
