Marco Beltrami & Mastodon - Jonah Hex

Excellent comic > Forgettable film > Excellent soundtrack. That's my summary of Jonah Hex as a franchise.

My summary of Jonah Hex as a six-track soundtrack EP brought to us by Italian composer Marco Beltrami and Mastodon is thus; it is Mastodon's best work since Leviathan. I haven't heard the new album yet but I don't expect it to be as good as this. Seriously download this, you don't need to have seen the film to enjoy it. In fact, you probably just shouldn't see the film.

Cheers for this - I forgot all about this soundtrack. The comics were so good and deranged, I figured that no mainstream film would ever be able to capture the flavour so I never bothered to get it out.

You figured right Tony! I can't even say it was a bad film, it just literally left no impression whatsoever. Pointlessly bland.
