    So he’s just going to use the average music from the 1st one again like he did the 2nd?

      Although not as spectacular as the music produced for most of the original ten movies, I do find Giacchino’s work to be well above average when compared to the majority of generic scores often heard in modern tentpoles.

      There’s at least some return to bold, thematic cues instead of tedious, ultra-bland progressions of chords and ubiquitous percussive beats.

      As for recycling, the very best in the industry do it. James Horner’s Search For Spock score is largely a reworked and expanded version of The Wrath Of Khan, and is none the worse for it IMHO.

      Besides, familiarity in the music can often bring a sense of cohesiveness and continuity to a series of films – the original Star Wars movies spring to mind.
