Music: Marc Shaiman MARY POPPINS RETURNS / Danny Elfman DUMBO
Marc Shaiman MARY POPPINS RETURNS
A ROUSING score that perfectly captures the feeling of the original. Shaiman is the PEFECT choice for this! Rousing, fun, and perfectly executed! Perfect for house work and getting things done!
Danny Elfman DUMBO
Hey, it’s a Tim Burton / Danny Elfman collaboration! As expected things are bouncy, inspirational, and well executed. Everything sounds suitably circusy… and is well crafted. Not Elfman’s BEST score, but… it certainly is fun and handled well. I particularly liked how Elfman wove the music of the time the film is set in as well as giving us “music for when the fish swims by.” All in all, this is another solid outing by Elfman.
