    None of the movies are of poor quality. And why would a soundtrack somehow suffer from a movie being bad?
    A soundtrack for a bad movie can still be great, just like a great movie can have a lackluster soundtrack. The music doesn't suddenly turn worse just because the pictures shown aren't to your liking. If the music doesn't cut it, it is because it doesn't cut it, not because the movie itself is dragging it down.

    Not that I generally disagree with the ST-soundtracks being a bit weaker. There is some great stuff in there, but the OT and PT went way beyond what was offered here.

    I mean we could just discuss the Music of Rogue One without bashing other films or scores...

    As someone who always liked Giacchino's music in "Lost," I really like "Your Father Would Be Proud" because it's very reminiscent of Giacchino's style from that show, just on a much grander scale. And while I appreciate all the nods Giacchino gives to Williams throughout the rest of the film, I love how "Your Father Would Be Proud" is 100% his own composition and style. There's a kind of deceptive simplicity to his style. It's not as elaborate or ornate as Williams' work tends to be, but it's great at delivering an emotional gut-punch when needed.

    I'm a huge fan of Giacchino's Lost music. I rewatched the entire series this year and wound up listening to the scores for a few months. Fantastic!

    I also really liked his work on the soundtrack for War for the Planet of the Apes.
