Buy it... if you're an enthusiast of the Tierney Sutton Band and seek their newest album, courtesy Clint Eastwood and his usual notions of underplaying the music in his films.

Avoid it... if you expect to hear an actual film score with a developed narrative and any convincing semblance of suspense or conflict.

Sully: (Christian Jacob/Clint Eastwood) Thinking back about all the success that actor, writer, and director Clint Eastwood has had in cinema through the decades, it's curious to ponder that 2016's Sully was his most significant box office success at the time of its release. The film is a feel-good story with somewhat manufactured antagonists, but it's a continuing exposition of Tom Hanks' acting chops and Eastwood's directing prowess. The tale of the US Airways flight that crash-landed in the Hudson River in early 2009 is well known, especially after the loss of both engines of the aircraft due to bird strikes led to no casualties when the plan peacefully glided onto the river and all aboard evacuated without much issue. The pilot, Chesley Sullenberger, wrote an autobiography that included significant details about the stresses he faced after the incident, both in his nightmares and in the investigation he faced from the National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB protested the film, claiming that it was vilified in the depiction as adapted to screen. Audiences sympathetic to notions of government ineptitude and Sullenberger's perceived heroism rewarded the film while critics were generally positive but not overwhelmingly so. Eastwood being Eastwood, he sought an underplayed solution to the music for his film. He had seen jazz singer Tierney Sutton, seven-time Grammy nominee, and the Tierney Sutton Band perform at his country club in Carmel, California and had tracked a number of their light jazz numbers into rough edits of Sully. Eastwood invited Sutton and the band's co-leader, Christian Jacob, to his studio and asked them to flesh out his own melodic ideas for the film into a full-fledged score. The director was no stranger to attempting any means of avoiding traditional scores for his film, usually relying on himself or family to generate scores that are predictably a weak point for his productions. His knack for hammering out melodies on a piano does not translate into an ability to understand the finer nuances of dramatic film scoring, and this failing usually leads to ineffective scores for his movies. Never mind the fact that he has been recognized by awards bodies for his film scores; the nominations he receives for such work are asinine and don't reflect the actual quality of his compositions. In the case of Sully, the result is better than your more frustratingly sparse, solo-oriented Eastwood score on average, but there remain issues of effectiveness that are inevitable when you have novices at the helm.
