Tolkien by Thomas Newman (Ep. 139)

Tolkien by Thomas Newman (Ep. 139)
Thomas Newman is back with his original score to the recently released bio-pic, TOLKIEN. Dane Walker and Christopher Coleman represent the tiny audience that went to see the film on opening weekend by sharing why they, themselves, bothered to run out and see the film so early, what they thought about the film, and their expectations for Newman's ethereal score. Was it a good fit for the film or is it better as a stand-alone listen? The episode concludes with the two spotlighting a few stand out tracks from the Tolkien soundtrack.
