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>

Barbastella is the best composition you've ever made, Hans. My favourite part is the drums in the last 43 seconds. So awesome!

100/100 from here.

This is truly by far the best Batman score!! But I must say the 12 tracks on the cd release are just not enough. There is much more missing i'm sure. Please release an expanded version of Batman Begins, my current copy is getting worn out!!. = )

An absolute masterpiece I love Lasiurus so much and Ive already made a music video for it with footage from BATMAN BEGINS. I also agree with JON THE DON about making a sequel and I also agree with luke for making the sequel it would be so shit if this experience for remaking batman and changing the style of the score.

I certainly agree about Danny Elfmans Music and I loved this soundtrack. I cant go a few days without listening to a few selective tracks. I think you created a brilliant motion picture score. I myself am I batman fan and before the film came out I wanted to hear some versionms of the original. But I was blown away by the shear quality of this one. I mean Elfans was great but This was AMAZING. I actually haddenerd heard your name but when I researed on you I saw a mighty impressive selection on motion picture tracks to listen to and I was so impressed. Im only 16 by the way and wouldnt have heard your name sorry but I know your stuff know great work on BATMAN BEGINS and good luck.

The music is awsome and addictive i liked Molossus the best but now i prefer Lasiurus.
I hope Hans Zimmer does the soundtrack for the sequel.

Can you please release an expanded score for Batman Begins? The original is the best soundtrack I've bought, but I really want to hear more. Thank you.

Excellent! Pure genuis of a soundtrack. Because of the music and the new life given to Batman (thanks to Mr Nolan), I have seen it at least 12 times over the past week or so. Misters Zimmer and Newton - Howard, I congratulate you both and hope to hear your talents on the next Batman film.

I'm a huge batman fanatic.. back when i heard about them making a new batman franchise, i was shocked and real excited.. and when i heard hans zimmer's on board to score it, i was just blown away.. i instantly knew, this was the batman film worth seeing and waiting for.. and that this movie will turn out really great. And it did! When i finally saw the movie and heard hans and james' score, it was just perfect! Nolan made a right choice and I hope Hans' back to score the sequel.

Excellent~! It is the PERFECT Batman music, no matter what anyone else says, even if it is not the Danny Elfman style. I wish that an expanded score (preferably a promo) is released soon. Oh god MAY THE SCORE BE NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR! I hope then an expanded release will be there!!!!! *crosses fingers* <--:)

Hey there

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know if there is a bootleg release of this soundtrack in existence? The official CD we have is great, don't get me wrong. But there are several terrific themes and arrangments present in the movie but not on CD that I'd love to have. I understand that HZ and JNH were going for a particular feel with their official soundtrack, but I think fans of the score and the film would love to own the rest of the music!

BTW, a bootleg or second soundtrack release would make the ULTIMATE Christmas present...
