How are the scores calculated and what does it mean?

Shipwrecked from 1990 is a partly Norwegian Disney movie directed by Norwegian director Nils Gaup so I should really have watched this, but I haven’t. Shame on me! The score is yet again by Patrick Doyle and is the 9th score I take on in Patrick Doyle Month. The score is quite short so better make every cue count and judging by the frisky ‘Opening Titles’ we could be in for a treat. The main theme is a great, adventurous and fun romp just like I expected it would be. This score is a head scratcher though. Every cue that doesn’t use the main theme in some capacity are certified snorefests.

This I don’t understand. How can a cue called ‘Exploring The Island’ not be enticing and entertaining? Exploring? Hello! Yeah there are a bunch of cues I don’t understand here because it should have been a lot more fun than this. All is not lost though as I found 6 cues worthy of further listening and exploration in the future and who knows, they might make it on my list of best cues of 1990.

HIGHLIGHTS:
1. Opening Titles
3. Homecoming
5. Off To The Sea
10. Mary Is Rescued
20. End Titles – Part I
21. End Titles – Part II
