One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGN
I guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.
Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time lately
Ok, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for it

Hi!

You guys are doing a great job covering the main topics of a brilliant composer. Thank you. There is one big thing I miss tho on this page and it's the Hans Zimmer "gear" list. What kinda hardware and software does he use for his midi mock-ups and so forth? And what could he recommend for aspiring composers to use? That would be a great additional to this page! Until then keep on brining the good stuff... :)


Cheers,
Mats from Norway.

Hey Mr. Zimmer,
My name is Garrett and I am a huge fan of your work. Your music inspires me to say the least and it would absolutly be incredible if you were able to read this in your very limited spare time. I'm a 15 year old highschool student and it would mean so much to see your written score for At Wit's End on the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest soundtract. I have written some short pieces of music and am in the middle of writing a choral. It has been my dream to arrange some of your briliant pieces for band. I play the trumpet in school at the moment and am also taking music lessons for piano. I don't want to give you my life story here but if you had a couple of minutes out of your day to email me a response or anything I would be ecstatic. My email is: garrett626@hotmail.com.
Thx for your time Mr. Zimmer,
Garrett

hey mr Zimmer,
as you can see, my name`s Freddy and I`m from Germany. Several days ago I watched the fantastic movie Sherlock Holmes and was totally amazed of the soundtrack, which you composed. Absolutely awesome.
Right now I`m searching for the sheet music of discombobulate and hope I`m gonna find it.
Well, keep on with this great work and I hope you`ll win an oscar!

i don`t know you mr. Zimmer and my english isn`t really good, but your music is the best i`ve ever heard. And i wanna hear more of it. Don´t make the music for Part 2 of Sherlock Holmes(maybe there will be a second part everywhen), they should make the second "movie-part" for your music. I hope you know i meen :-)

Hello Mr Zimmer
After over 3 years of searching for the sheet music notation to your score 'injection' which I find to be a beautiful & moving piece of music.

I'm on the verge of giving up looking & I found what I can only call a tiny spark of hope in this last request, in that somehow, someday, you might read this & bless me with the notation to the masterpiece.

The reason I am asking is purely for the purposes of looking in to your way of thinking & artistry in hope that some day (with my present limited composing skills) I can be in league with you & know what it feels like to bless the world with the gift such as which you possess.

My email is:
Dannyravenhall@live.co.uk
I would be forever in your debt if you could just bless me with my strongest desire to view your work on paper.

Thank you for your time

Looking forward to your next work very much

I just wanted to say to Mr. Zimmerman that he made the best damn soundtrack for anything that I have come across in my years when he did the sound track for Modern Warfare 2.

I would dearly love to see the entire score of Batman Begins performed live! I bought the CD after watching the movie several times. I can see the orchestra in my head..every violin..horn..drums..it is the Rachmananoff of movie sound tracks! I love it!
Any chance of a live concert of this anywhere, anytime? I live in Asheville, North Carolina..USA so going to Belgium is not an option. It is on my 'bucket list'..many thanks for a reply.

You really threw down on the end credits for Sherlock Holmes - the final modulation coming out of the first cue that leads to the Irish ditty was absolutely fantastic.

Hans, I have been following your music since Gladiator and I even have "for Nancy" as a ringtone on my Iphone. What can I say, since I have that ringtone I smile inside everytime I get a call. Call me crazy but are the little things in life that makes it worthwhile... I have been finding myself looking, when a new movie trailer appear, the Music Composer credit to see if it is you: Now: It's complicated!
Thank you for your music... makes people like me very happy.

Hans,

Fellow composer here. You're pretty much the grandfather of the "BIG" hollywood sound. Much respect to you... I'm curious, did someone clone Steve Jablonsky after you,,, every theme I've ever heard of his mimics one of your themes... either from gladiator (the island) transformers (pearl harbor/the island) and those are the only two OST's i can think of coming from him. however... is this a bastard son we never knew about??? You're a good man
