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

I listened to the Da Vinci Code CD again a few hours ago, and to me this is much much MUCH better than Angels and Demons, though I do like the latter. DVC stays a highlight in Zimmer's career, A&D is "just" a nice score as its best parts (to me) are themes from DVC, the "Science and Religion" track apart (my favorite). Action music leans more toward 90s' Zimmer's action scores, like Peacemaker, that doesn't sound "davincicodian" even if it's kinda cool in its own way... maybe a bit dated...

it the same thing that I said ¬¬ Jaweco... 160 BPM is based on the rhythm of THE PEACEMAKER = Devoe's Revenge... Listen it, guys!!

Im not an avid Zimmer fan but even I got to take my hat off to this guy. Amazing score, definitely one of his best. Melodic and hardcore, the choir is chilling!

I agree w/ you Patrick. I loved the album release, but I wanted more of the variations of the 'Chevaliers de Sangreal' stuff. I'm praying for a bootleg.

Great musical score in the movie, from the first note it was already the beautifull music based on 'Chevaliers de Sangreal'. But the CD is (for me) a disappointment because it's more action than 'CdS'-based themes (like in the movie). I hope there will be a longer CD later...

Just saw the movie.
I have to admit I'm a little disappoint with Ron. The book is so good but he cut the most important part from the book. And there were scenes I'd love to see in the movie.
But the soundtrack.... WOW!
There was a scene where I literaly had chicken skin. The song and the image was just brilliant.

After seeing the film, it sounds like "H20" actually appears in the scene where (POSSIBLE SPOILER) it reveals who really branded the Camerlengo.

The movie was practically wall-to-wall action, and about 95% of the film contained music. And of course only about 45% of that music ended up on the CD...

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!! Spine tingeling, provocative, raise-the-hairs-on-my neck music! Thank you very much!!!

THE PEACEMAKE Soundtrack.

Listening with more attention, and you will know.

Well, it's a typicall sound of Zimmer...

What a splendid and powerful improvisation on the devine theme of The Chevaliers of Sangreal.
Congratulations, Hans! I recognized a reference to 'Kingdom of Heaven' of Harry Gregson-Williams, but once again the result was celestial! Greetings from Bart Soens

Just seen the movie - preferred the book to The Da Vinci Code and the movie is so much better too. The soundtrack is fantastic and really does the book justice - Hans Zimmer always delievers.

I certainly hope so! I love the music that was composed for the movie, but I felt that the album presentation was a bit substandard.

54 minutes out of an 138 minute movie just doesn't cut it...

There hasn't been a bootleg for The Da Vinci Code yet (which is strange considering that about 95% of his scores receive the bootleg treatment), but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

In the movie, I loved the unreleased tracks:

- right after the Main Titles - Chrous!!!! :-)
- near the end of the movie: running back to the Vatikan through the secret path


... then I've one question: The title of the bonus track is H2O, BUT in the movie, there's another music in the "water"-scene? ... or maybe I have listened wrong? ;-)
