My apologies, after seeing the film again, I believe "Blood on My Hands" may play during Harvey's introduction, and the first part of "Harvey Two-Face" plays during Dent's speech. I think Peter is right. Sorry again.
For Hans Zimmer, the dark knight represents a failure to perform up to expectations. This score lacks the personal voice that ultimately ties it to its movie - there are not many characteristics that say “the dark knight” - I just feel “dark action film”. His music would have benefited from a more thematic approach.
Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer. I really loved the OST of the gladiator and king Arthur those were really jewels. The Dark Knight i didn't hear the complete OST but the part that you can download. It was much the same sound, only number 8 sounded exception good.
sorry Hans, but I hoop that i am wrong and the whole cd sounds as number 8.
Batman begins was boring, hoping that the dark knight was going to be less boring, I took a chance and saw it today and it's even more boring ! I almost fell asleep in the theater for god sake ! Extremely disappointing !!!
It 's done. I have just received the cd I bought with Amazon. It sounds great. Purshase original versions is really the most honest way to appreciate the whole work of composers because electronic sounds are excellent.
Thanks Sentient Being, you helped get my tracks in order... but I think a few are misplaced. I could be completely wrong too, but here's how I have my tracks listed: 1 - Why So Serious - Opening 2 - I'm Not a Hero - Hong Kong 3 - Aggressive Expansion - Joker attacks 4 - Always a Catch - ? 5 - Blood on My Hands - Bruce and Rachel theme 6 - I Am The Batman - Dent confesses 7 - Agent of Chaos - Rachel/Dent - Rescue attempt 8 - Harvey Two-Face - Aftermath of explosions, visits of Dent at hospital, Bruce mourns, Coin delivered. 9 - And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad - Bruce saves Reese and Hospital Evacuation 10 - Like a Dog Chasing Cars - Batman/Hostages/Swat 11 - Introduce a Little Anarchy - 2nd part of Hostage rescue and reaching the Joker 12 - A little push - Final talk of Joker w/ Batman 13 - Watch World Burn - 2Face confronts Gordon/family and Batman 14- A Dark Knight - montage and ending.
A Little Push contains the theme of fear or intimidation, used in BB when Batman faces the gang for the first time and when he faces Scarecrow for the second time.
By the way, Michael, good work, but I remember the middle part (the bombastic one) in Harvey Two-Face having taken place during the Maroni and the Russians arrest, although it was cut in the movie. However, it is possible some portions of this track appear during the scenes of Harvey in hospital.
I am trying to find the name of the music that plays during the Batman and Joker interrogation scene. It also plays when Joker is talking two face in to joining the dark side. I think it also plays at the end, when the joker reveals that Harvey was his "Ace in the Hole" It is a very soft bell or xylophone sounding bit. It is very quiet, but sounds awesome. Can anyone help me out?
It has been more then 10 years since my very 1st Hans Zimmer "The Rock" cd. At present I own more then 50 Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Been a big fan of his, I must say not every of the soundtrack of nice. I can listen to 100 times of The Rock and maybe just once of the other not so nice one. And due to hectic work and other lifestyle, I have neglected the much of Hans Zimmer works since the superb last samurai. I watched the dark knight and was blow away by the music. It sounded zimmerish was what I strongly felt during the credits. Due to Dark Knight I enthusiastically search for Hans Zimmer news and that was what bring me to this website for the very 1st time. True enough it is Hans Zimmer work!! Rush down the next day afterwork to HMV to find it. OUT OF STOCK. Was very glad when found it in borders. The soundtrack is EXCELLENT and definitely belongs to one of Hans Zimmer BEST work. A pity I didnt watch Batman Begins last time, else will have definitely get the CD. Now cant find it in CD stores. I have listen to many soundtracks including Video game music. Hans Zimmer is definitely someone who can tickle your emotions Up and Down and all around with his music.
Someone....please......I can't find the track title for the End Credits.... Can someone help me find the track title?? I know very well it is NOT in track 14-A Dark Knight. Starts like how Batman Begins' End Credits but it's abit different than Batman Begins.
The end credits has the beginning from BB, something like Star Wars always having the same End Credits opening in each episode. The opening of the TDK End credits is the same as in BB End credits, but in TDK it is followed by The Dark Knight cue.
"Your" sound has come a long way from the days of the original Bad Boys soundtrack with Mr. M Mancini amongst others that I could mention that you have been a part of in the many soundtracks in my collection.
