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

Hans,

I personally love the At World's End song "Hoist the Colours" the only problem I have with it is that the FULL song is not on the CD, and it can't be found anywhere else. I hate the chain rattling at the end, it takes away from the song. But if I had my way I'd have the FULL song from the movie, where verses 2 and 3 are included, not just verse one.

If you make a special CD that has the full song (or have but haven't released it...) please post the news so I can go buy it!

Other than that, I love your music. Hymn to Red October, You're So Cool, everything basically.

Keep making amazing and powerful music,
-Jeff

Hans,

Your music is by far one of the greatest and most inspirational that I have ever experienced.

I don't know if you can fully comprehend what you have contributed and how much you inspire the planet through your music. I always found myself buying the soundtrack to a few of my favourite movies, it wasn't until 4 months ago that i realised they were written by the same brilliant man - you.

You are truly gifted, and I look forward to experiening more of your inspirational work in the future.

Keep up the amazing work. You will truly go down as one of the greats.

An inspired fan,
Ash

Hans Zimmer, just quite simply blown away by the music.
Beautiful, Beautiful Stuff. I would suggest to otheres to listen to Run Free from 'Spirit', a little know film, but with some beautiful music.
I would like to ask permission to arrange, the opening phrase from that particular piece, for brass band. If anyone has a contact for Hans, or knows who i should get into contact with, please let me know (edwardik2@hotmail.co.uk).

Please use much more French Horn in your compositions. Your music rises to higher levels of emotion upon each useage of this sound, carrying the listener deeper into a heroic feeling and beyond, stretching the emotional limits even further, and isn't this what great score writing is supposed to do?

On a podcast, Hans Zimmer said that he'd love to, 'Take a break from score-writing in 2008, and do some touring... work with the local orchestras...'
Has anyone else heard about this? If so, any ideas on the whereabouts of his tour destinations? =D

Whats up. I never new he did so many soundtracks. Ive fallen in love with his music. They are totally awesome. He should go on tour, with his orcestra/band performing all of his songs that he does, i think it would be a good hit around the world. He has done so many good soundtracks, , my favorite is Pirates of the cariibean, Black hawk down, gladiator, well all of them he did a surperb job. So Hans if you see this go on tour for me. PLEASE!

For a number of years I have been performing ski ballet to Hans Zimmer and Trevor Rabin's music, as well as Klaus BAdelt and others you know.

I am now putting on the web a pre-release of a book entitled
Saphien's Guide to Becoming a Prophet.

I would like to ask permission to use with reference Hans' music, and that of others, if you have access.

Thank you ever so much. Hans is a genius.

Hello Sir.

My name is Haakon from Norway.
I have a technical idea fore hard drive recorder mixers.

The idea is based on the time shift buffers in harddrive dvd recorders. These recorders can record everything all the time. So if you see a football match and a goal.
You just need to klick save and the goal is saved even if you click record and save after the thing happened.
Therfore things are recorded bakwards in time.
It is a pritty simple concept.

My idea is to do this in hard drive audio mixers/recorders
Fore pro audio. Wich means that the recorder always are in record mode. And any inspired moment can be saved. The sound is recorded into harddrive many minutes backwards. So it is not excsaly the same thing as exsists on some edirol stuff and nuendo cubase. The concept is that you can be shure that any innspired stuff is never not recorded. Wich means you have to record backwards in time a certain amount of minutes.
Not just seconds or one minute.
Without resetting the recorder all the time.
This makes fore a very creative way of making music.
Without dooing anything. One can be shure that any golden moment in the studio is never missed and lost.

I have talked to several companies on this idea.
That I have come up with myselfe.
And most of them see it as a new and interesting idea.
Wich has not been implemented by anyone fore audio pro recordings as yet.

I wonder if you are interested in thurtering the idea?
(I am a struggling musichen and would be very greatful
if you like my idea. To be rewarded with some equiptment fore free fore this idea from whatever company could be interested.


Very best wishes.
