“Another example of movie and music going hand in hand to set a tone and enhance an experience. Ground breaking movie? Sure. So the soundtrack had to keep pace, which it did.”

“This movie would be perfect, absolutely perfect, if they'd never made any sequels. Alas, they did. But the original still holds up well as a mind blowing cinematic extravaganza.”
