After experiencing the absolute delight that this film is, I quickly ordered both musical albums for the film. Though I am unfamiliar with Theodore Shapiro, this score is simply a joy, with whimsical and pensive melodies, some fun action cues, and a great main theme that is reprised quite a few times in creative and often inspiring ways. Hopefully Shapiro will be given some more scoring opportunities outside of his typical comedic fare after this soundtrack, for he certainly shows some great talent. A must own for fans of the film, and something worth a listen for film score buffs like myself.

Ben Stiller has given us a lot of great films from behind the camera, and it's always great to see someone go beyond their comfort zone to deliver something different. The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is a story of a man who loses himself in his daydreams, but eventually goes on a life-changing adventure to help secure his and a co-worker's job and to fulfill things in his life that seems to be at a standstill. Stiller calls on Theodore Shapiro once again after their teaming on Tropic Thunder. While this is only the second film Shapiro has scored for Ben Stiller as a director, he's also scored Ben Stiller vehicles like Dodgeball and Starsky & Hutch. Shapiro's versatility made him a perfect choice for this film, and boy does he deliver.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is a tremendously resonating score. The whole soundscape is unique and feels like it has its own distinct identity, and I think that's very important for the central character of Walter. Shapiro gives us a very definitive theme that immediately grounds us in Walter's plain life. We feel the emptiness and we feel the loneliness, but we also feel the yearn for excitement and the fear holding back the ability to pursue it. The life of the score comes from his dream sequences where Shapiro is free to be as big as he wants. However, the music never feels like it detaches from the main body of the score. In other words, the dream sequences are not their own pieces as they are still very much part of the continuing narrative. As the story moves along and Walter goes further on his real-life journey, we feel the music fill up with a sense of fulfillment. The identity of Walter in the music doesn't change, but everything starts to feel more complete and accomplished.

Have you ever bought a soundtrack and then once it starts playing you realize that you bought the score? Me neither, but I bought the soundtrack too...hahaha. Luckily the score is amazing and I don't mind it one bit, just know that the score is the music that plays in the background during the movie to emphasize whatever is going on, not the actual songs playing in the movie, that's the soundtrack. My wife and I found this movie and really fell in love with it. The cinematography just blows your mind along with the music and score it's a win-win-win. Great for a road trip, just pop it in and watch the miles go by, don't forget to pick up the soundtrack or anything from Jose Gonzalez, his albums are pretty much an extension of the movie or the movie was re-inspired by his music (I know it's a remake), either way enjoy! I love that you can listen to it and feel like you're watching the movie while you're driving. Pretty magical.

As much as I loved the movie, I thought the score would be better.
I remember so many great musical nuances from the movie (including the 'mitty theme' that seemed to run through most of the film in the background) but yet it wasn't that prevalent while listening to this.
Overall it's just ok and had I listened to it before buying I would probably have passed.

Very chill music, but perfect for a road trip, slide show, or music to keep on in the background at home or work. Probably my favorite movie score in years.

I keep falling for the idea that this type of CD will include ALL the music from the movie...it does NOT. As the title indicates, the "original" motion picture score, so any of the proprietary songs are not included.

At times a hauntingly beautiful, at other times an exhilarating, soundtrack helps tell the story of Walter Mitty. The music of Theodore Shapiro is an integral element of the movie. If you haven't seen the movie, perhaps this soundtrack will inspire you to do so. A great movie, and a great soundtrack!

This sound track reminds me of the movie its bigger then life.. The CD arrived in perfect condition.. The sound quality and various songs in the movie allows you to go on a personal journey through out the movie following every step of the way along with every scene change. My favorite is "Into the Harbor"; When Walter begins his real journey aboard the boat searching for the photo that will change his life and the man that is responsible for the negative that brings about that change.
