Editorial Reviews

Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. Thadeous (Danny McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (James Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the heart of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel) gets kidnapped by the evil wizard (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman) an elusive warrior with a dangerous agenda of her own the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna. If Thadeous can find his inner hero, he can help his brother prevent the destruction of his land. Stay a slacker, and not only does he die a coward, he gets front row seats to the dawn of an all-new Dark Ages.Steve Jablonsky (Transformers) captures the epic sweep, pageantry, and romance of the era is his lush score for orchestra and choir. Universal Pictures opens Your Highness on over 3000 screens on April 8.

Steve Jablonsky who is best known for his massive emotion filled action scores shifts directions with this release. Back when I saw that Jablonsky was to do the score to a stoner comedy period spoof I thought it might have been one of those strange internet rumors. Alas though here we have Jablonsky's score and to be honest I was really interested in seeing how he'd approach it. The rule with comedies especially spoofs is that if you commit then you have to commit fully. The music becomes the most important part in a movie like this. The score makes or breaks it, and Jablonsky definitely doesn't fall flat here.

The most recent spoof score that struck levels of comic genius was Theodore Shapiro's score to Tropic Thunder. What made it so brilliant was the fact that it was an amazing action score. You could have slipped that music into Black Hawk Down and it would have worked. The same goes here with Your Highness. The only difference is that Jablonsky isn't spoofing a genre of music as much as Shapiro was. Shapiro went out of his normal stylings to craft a score that sounded like typical war scores, but did it extremely well. With Your Highness Jablonsky stays within his realm and we get a Jablonsky score, which doesn't mean the music fails. Instead of mimicking period and fantasy scores he pushes his style to the limit and creates some over the top moments to highlight the absurdity. By no means is Howard Shore getting spoofed as this is a 100% Jablonsky score. The music works for what the movie is. It is funny that this grand over the top action score is meant for the story at hand. I think it would have been funnier if Jablonsky did a little more genre mimicking like he does at the beginning and the end of the score.

While not quote a spoof in the same way that Robin Hood: Men in Tights was a spoof, Your Highness nevertheless is a lighthearted variation on those medieval costume dramas, in which damsels in distress and knights in armor do battle with dangerous enemies and fall in love in the forest. Directed by David Gordon Green, the film stars Danny McBride and James Franco as Thadeous and Fabious, a pair of royal knights - one a lazy oaf, the other a noble warrior - who team up with a warrior princess named Isabel (Natalie Portman) to rescue Fabious's virginal bride-to-be Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel) from the clutches of Leezar (Justin Theroux), an evil sorcerer. The film also stars Toby Jones, Charles Dance and Damien Lewis, and has an original score by Steve Jablonsky.

Films with this kind of swash and buckle and derring-do have often inspired great scores, going all the way back to Erich Wolfgang Korngold and The Adventures of Robin Hood in 1938, and encompassing works by such varied composers as Miklós Rózsa, John Barry and Michael Kamen. Steve Jablonsky enters this mix off the back of his massively popular and successful Transformers scores, and is clearly attempting to recapture the scale and scope of those scores here by combining a large symphony orchestra, choir, and various medieval solo instruments, with Lisbeth Scott's vocal work, and a whole host of electronic samples, textures and effects.

On the one hand, I have to say that on a base level I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this score. Despite its slight echoes of his over-egged Transformers scores, the music has a generally upbeat and pleasing timbre.

Sometimes a less than stellar movie has a superior musical score and that's the case here. Had Steve Jablonsky's music been married to one of Peter Jackson's epics or any other sword and sorcery opus, he might have gotten an Oscar nomination. Instead, the score was written for a sorry spoof, but that doesn't diminish Jablonsky's craft. If you're a student filmmaker or digital film enthusiast that needs a terrific temp score, this provides quite a wallop. Don't judge this book by its cover, because it's not a book, it's a CD. It's a great musical score for a film that isn't worthy.

Great score! Good for D&D sessions, some nice heroic themes, etc. Like the film itself, there's a slightly 80sfantasy film feel to it, but in a good way.
