Ready or Not

Ready or Not ★★★

There’s a fair amount to praise and criticize here and I liked it overall, but nothing upset me more than the opening credit card “Music by Bryan Tyler” as music by Beethoven plays, and for the rest of the movie the best musical moments are with preexisting properties rather than the all but forgettable original score. It’s a dumb thing to be anal about but the placement and phrasing give Bryan Tyler too much singular credit. I have nothing against him personally, but movies continue pushing lackluster scores while using pop music (yes I’m calling Beethoven pop) as a crutch.
