Soundtrack Review: Crazy Eyes (2012)

Crazy Eyes Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the film score Crazy Eyes by Bobby Johnston.

“Crazy Eyes is a very original and quirky score.”

This is a quirky comedy about an alcoholic, Zach, who party like there’s no tomorrow. He then meets a girl who has “crazy eyes” as he likes to call it, and everything starts to change for him. It’s directed by Adam Sherman and starring Luke Haas, Madeline Zima and Jake Busey. The score is composed by Bobby Johnston.

It’s weird and quirky score time and here to provide it is Bobby Johnston who scored the horror/thriller “Mother’s Day” I reviewed earlier. Crazy Eyes is a comedy about love, alcoholism and LA, a recipe for craziness. This score is definitely not for everyone, and that can be a very negative thing. I would say that the score is definitely interesting. It has a bluesy/jazzy sound to it, a lazy sound, and it’s definitely original.

It quickly get very boring however as even the originality of the cues blend into the next trying to be more sophisticated and original, but I don’t feel the score at all. It’s quite emotionless for me and that’s what kills it for me.

Conclusion

Crazy Eyes is a very original and quirky score, but it’s not a great one in my opinion. It doesn’t move me or make me emotional. Instead it goes on from one cue to the next trying to be as quirky and cool as it can be, but doesn’t really progress. Buy it at your own risk!
