How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lolOlive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!
@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.
Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)
@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>

I, personally think that this music is Very Good to say the least. Whether Batman has a main theme or not is irrelevant. Listen to the way the music flows throughout the movies. I personally think that this music COULD stand all by itself without the movie. I listen to Hans Zimmer's music EVERY DAY. I can't get enough of any of his work. His alone, or with other composers. I think that his music enhances the movies...Take a look at The Dark Knight...see how the music introduces and enhances the scenes. Hans Zimmer's work takes a great movie and makes it incredible...I can't imagine The Dark Knight with any music than what has been written.

Yesterday I saw a bootleg which said complete score from Batman Begins. It has more than 50 track 25/25 or something tracks on each disc. It is a fake, it has SFX!!!!

Exactly - Zimmer writes circles around people - it's too bad that he doesn't get the same credit as other such as John Williams who has been stealing from other and himself to make a career

the one with the people actually in it. The full trailer. go to and search for the dark knight they would have it there. also it was played towards the end of the credits in Begins. I have a recording of it on my profile there if you wnna listen for it. and it definitely can stand alone. The soundtrack is a masterpiece. i dont understand why you dont like it. i think its great.

Im from Poland and my english isn't great, but i want to ask about this theme you are talking about. You said that i can hear it in the Dark Knight trailer. I had watched all trailers on the you tube and i can't find it. In wich trailer that main theme is??

thePen13 reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-26 00:00:00
I think this score is overrated... everyones talkin' about how its the greatest score ever written, please! The score can't stand on its own without the movie. And I don't think James is gettin' enough credit for his contributions either. This soundtrack is good at best!

Mark reply Replies: 0 || 2007-11-28 00:00:00
hey Mike. That is the main theme. It is not featured on the soundtrack. If you want to hear the song though i do have it on my movieweb account. Go to and it will be there. But that is the main theme. Hans Zimmer did not have it in the movie because it was Batman "BEGINS" and he did not earn his theme yet. So that was a feature to get you ready for it.

the greatest score ever from the greatest

Its been eating me up for months

I bet that the track Vespirtillio was the theme, just to let you know. But, I couldbe wrong. I like the whole track. Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, what is your secret?

Mark reply Replies: 0 || 2007-10-16 00:00:00
The theme comes out for the first time, still incomplete but still heard in the track Molossus. If you have seen the trailer you can hear it very faintly in the background.

Although we had that spout before batman5 i agree with you. Zimmer was dead on in this score. Anyone who is worried about Batmans theme, it doesnt come out until the release of the Dark Knight. Just wait he will not let you down. Zimmer you are the man

batman5 reply Replies: 0 || 2007-07-10 00:00:00
well the main thing that seperates elfmans batman and zimmers is that elfman already has the batman theme in the music. in zimmers batman hasnt "earned" his theme yet. just wait for the dark knight to come out july 18 of next year. zimmer wont let you down. plus the directors view of batman is very different. tim burton had a dark, fantastical batman, which fits elfmans style wonderfully. christopher nolan has a very very dark, realistic batman. which fits zimmer better. its to hard to compare composers works on projects like this when the styles differ as much as they do

and hans no giutar needed. for some reason when it hink of batman, a giutar of any kind does not come to mind. i think you and howard know what you are doing. elfman needs to learn the saying less can be more. always over writing his music. especially percussion. being a composition major in college myself i know this. you and howard are doing a vry wonderful job. looking forward to the dark knight =D

batman5 reply Replies: 0 || 2007-04-18 00:00:00
Hans you are the man. the way you have the batman theme at the end and add to the begins theme. very cool. and your progressions and usage of low brass and percussion always leave me at a place of awe.

i thought the soundtrack was spot on.. it fit the movie perfectly... this was batman begins.. to have a huge grandiose theme tune for him would have been overkill and uncalled for.. the subtle horns and tremelo strings call was perfect... especially because it can be built upon and turned into an epic theme for the next movie... which i'm really looking forward to.

One thing i will say though, Please Please Please add some guitar in the sequels soundtrack... take it up a notch so to speak...

I own several scores and OST's from many movies, and this one is the best. Macrotus is my favorite track from it's sweeping strings to the verbose brass section. Great stuff.
