How are the scores calculated and what does it mean?

The Judge directed by David Dobkin is a family drama first and foremost, a criminal drama second. Dobkin’s choice of composers is interesting. He changes composer with every movie he makes and now the turn has come to Thomas Newman. I can tell you right now that Thomas Newman fans will absolutely love this score. Newman goes back to his roots with this one while adding some of the flavours of recent years. I can hear a lot of different Thomas Newman scores and it feels good. It was time.

The Judge is a very pleasant score unless you have a dislike for Thoman Newman’s style, but who can dislike it, really? I personally enjoy the cues that are similar to “The Help”, those lovely minimalistic shades of music. This is nothing new or groundbreaking territory for Newman. This is a fan service to all Newman fans out there who enjoy his music, new and old. I didn’t expect something new and was satisfied with what I heard.
