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." - IGNI 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 latelyOk, 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 itsame

Oh look guys, it seems the tasteless JNH bots have come out of the woodwork for one last trolling effort.

tomPoland2012-06-15 12:55:23
I'm not a troll. I'm not blind or deaf and can hear that Zimmer is out of ideas for a long time - not mentioning that sometimes orchestrations are poor and cheap. Howard has weaker moments, yes, but still can bring magic, even if for a few minutes.

A Watchful Guardian 2012-06-15 13:35:51
The music hasn't even been released yet buddy. Calm down.

Zimmer's choral Bane "chant" alone is enough to strike down any of JNH's most recent musical ideas -- and honestly, I am a fan of them both, along with Elfman. I don't see why it's gotta be a competition.

tomPoland2012-06-15 14:21:48
Zimmer has nice ideas (Piaff song slowed down, that Bane-chant), but this won't make whole score good.

It's not a competition - Zimmer was my first composer, his music brought me to this world, but for few years I'm huge Howard fan.

im pretty sure the soundtrack we released is as it was recorded, and the in-movie music was the altered version

Mr. Fate2012-06-15 03:57:00
@Anonymous: who's to say which is right? I am, for one--as are multiple other people here who have an unreleased track for SH2. It is the only track that fits what is heard in the movie--without any adjustments needing to be made. I have reason to believe that it came from the recording sessions, or possibly some set of demos.

However, all of the OST is off speed from the way it's heard in the film, and I don't yet know if the three bonus tracks have the same error. I could continue making the same statements over and over again, but perhaps you could connect the dots on your own.

@Joe: I am fairly positive Hybrid Soldier has absolutely no control over any of the things you've just requested of him. He's just a fan like all the rest of us with, perhaps, a little bit of extra information and music on the side. ;)

Why do you bring this subject up on The Dark Knight Rises page, anyway? What does your question have anything to do with TDKR?

Like i said before, it's smaller than the 9 track Angels and Demons album -- and 50% of the actual score was missing.

But hey, angels and demons was one of his most brilliant albums so we shouldn't worry too much.

Source? Tracks 1 and 12 don't seem realistic, Hans usually doesn't include tracks that are that short.

Pierre2012-06-11 18:41:43
My source I withhold, but I can guarantee it's legit.

I See Everything from Sherlock 2 is a similar length to the opening track on this.

Arne2012-06-11 18:44:05
I guess "A Storm is Coming" will include atmospheric rumblings and shouts of "Deshe" and "Basara" before fading out.

51 minutes is a good length for me. Similar to the Inception album which I felt was a very good presentation, and Hans' last decent album for that matter.

Jasper2012-06-11 19:05:17
51 minutes sounds good to me too. It's all about the selection of music. I really hope this soundtrack contains all the best pieces of the score.

Angelica2012-06-11 19:41:47
51 Min of Score may be not good, it is means they are many unreleased tracks and these tracks may be the awesome music of movie score, like Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows The unreleased tracks were the best, and may be the TDKR Soundtrack contains unused tracks, so we must wait for Bonus Tracks or a Special Edition and i hope that occurs...

Joshua2012-06-11 19:53:48
Pierre's listing is legit. warner bros released it today.

MGDrone2012-06-11 19:54:25
Ok, I believe this. I hope some of these tracks are theme suites. Tracks 7 and 15 maybe?

Yeah, Inception was a good album. Now we only have to pray that the man who has chosen the cues featured on the album did a good job. The movie is 2h45, there's at least 2 hours of music...

cheesy2012-06-11 20:49:07
Well, Inception is still one of my personal favorite albums from RCP yet. Every track was excellent and flushed out, and most of them weren't even film versions. As long as the music is good and the album isn't lazy, I'll be happy.

Hybrid Soldier2012-06-12 17:11:25
Well, that's kinda disappointing...

But don't pretend you don't know how HZ builds his OSTs.

TDKR is a very long score, of course, for a long movie. But it was, as expected, heavily temptracked with BB & TDK. It'll contain a lot of music & themes already heard in the previous films, and HZ generally doesn't like to re-release what he considers being already present in previous soundtracks. Remember POTC 2 that didn't have the End Titles piece, only because it was "already" in the POTC 1 OST.

POTC 4 is quite short too cause the OST only focuses on new material (Spanish Theme / Mermaids Theme / Blackbeard Theme)...

I'm pretty sure the 51 min here are mainly compiled with the "new" material specific to TDKR...

And of course I don't like that, but we don't really have a choice... :P

cheesy2012-06-12 19:00:17
Very interesting point, Hybrid. But I thought Nolan was opposed to any kind of temp track?

Still though. It's disappointed. If Hans had that philosophy with TDK, the album would've been maybe half an hour long. I just keep repeating to myself; Inception was 50 minutes long, Inception was 50 minutes long...

Oh well. A special edition around the time the DVD hits shelves is doubtful but not entirely impossible, and even then we have a slew of talented DVD rippers on the web who will be all over this like yellow jackets on ginger ale. And maybe so digital bonus tracks maybe?

cheesy2012-06-12 19:00:42

Something about me and that word.

MGDrone2012-06-12 20:49:04
The thing is, Hans is pretty shy with his music, which is why I think we've always gotten modest album releases from him. I get the feeling that the reason why TDK was over an hour long was because of James Newton Howard's contributions. It's like with Kung Fu Panda 2 which is also over an hour long. I'm sure that if John Powell hadn't been attached to the project, we would've gotten a shorter album presentation. What I'm confident about is that Hans will pick the best material to include on the album. I don't doubt that there'll be some interesting cues missing, but Hans always tries to include a little bit of everything, not just all of the action cues. I really hope (not to be mean to Balfe or the other additional music writers) that what we get is just Zimmer's work, especially the theme suites, which are always more interesting than anything else on the album. I also hope he only brings back themes from the past movies that are appropriate, and if he does then I hope he switches them up a bit and gives them more variations. I hope to hear A LOT more of the more heroic three note theme (heard in A Dark Knight) with more variations like we heard in trailer 3, and a little less of the two note theme. I hope Catwoman's theme is satisfying also.

Calypso2012-06-12 21:00:22
I Cannot Believe it, The Tracklist is very strange strange.... Hans Zimmer has his own tracklist design for Tracklist meaning ( Words Meaning By Film Screenply) when we see SH1&2 The Score Tracklist Contains sentences from the movie...(Not In Blood, But In Bond & Psychological Recovery... 6 Months) these tracks (Music) does not match the events of the film, i hope you all understand me and like in TDK - (And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad&Watch The World Burn) The same thing in TDK, we can find the same point in POC-KFP-Inception, but when i see that tracklist is very strange (Despair - Rise - Underground Army) I cannot feel anything, and i hope this is a falce tracklist because it is very strange work from H-Z.

Poe2012-06-12 21:27:08
@bts, the tracks could just be really short beginnings of cues that cross into the next track, eg The Caponi Library on Hannibal.

Ds2012-06-13 11:46:40
@Hybrid: I thought Zimmer was working on TDKR several months before the shooting began. Then why did he need to use temptracks from TDK&BB??

Hybrid Soldier2012-06-13 12:22:10
HZ started working on that film in May/June 2011, writing theme suites. It was a long process. You can count between half-an-hour to one hour of theme suites written by HZ.

Then, when you have to score the final "cut" of the film, you basically temp it all with the suites (+ in this very case, BB and TDK when needed !). That's where the arrangers' work gets significant : adapting HZ's work to the screen.

Everyone needs to stop complaining about the cover art. Clearly, this image is going to be iconic in the film, hence it's inclusion here. This is a more artistic attempt at a cover, instead of using a poster montage, and that's fine - its different, it's fresh. Why not hold off judgment until the film opens and then comtemplate the merits of the album art, hmm? It will make complete sense, I am sure.

That is all.

Tick Tock2012-06-08 19:57:03
You are right, i am very proud of this score, and iam very optimistic in TDKR score, and It does not matter the cover art and it is only due to the composer and the water tower music...... and i think the score will be great like the two last movies ( Batman Begins & The Dark Knight ),all we must care about TDKR score and iam sure it will be Great (Sence of the word), and i hope, we can get the Complete score for TDKR later....... :)

You guys need to stop complaining about people complaining about the score cover. Besides, isn't everyone entitled to their own opinions and can't anyone express these opinions as they see fit? And what other site would be more appropriate than this one?

Some people don't like it, some people do. Some people will like the score, and I am sure some people won't like the score. And they will come to this place to express their likes and dislikes.

Steppy2012-06-09 01:39:32
My point is, they are judging it based on comparisons to the other two films. No one has seen this film yet. There's a reason for the artwork being this way, which I am sure the film will reveal. That's my issue; people have half the story and are bitchin.

Mr. Charles2012-06-09 07:02:22
Yes, we know it's important to the story, becuase we have all seen it in the trailer. Which is why I can understand it's the album cover. But if no one saw the trailer or the film, no one would know wtf that it's for. Both Batman Begins and TDK had poster art for the commercial covers.

Now the other day I was annoyed and disappointed by it, but now it's kinda growing on me. Maybe it will go back and fourth, who knows!! I know a guy (a couple, actually) who can make some nice covers

Serously, I cannot wait to hear this score! But its bitter sweet becuase its the end of Nolan's trilogy and its the finale! Knowing Hans Zimmer, I'm sure he'll create something that will knock it right out of the ball park!

So that IS the official cover art. I still think it makes more sense as the cover for a special or limited edition than the actual thing. I love the design, but I don't feel like the continuity of the trilogy is there. Still excited, though, the MTV score blew my mind.

MGDrone2012-06-08 03:19:08
I agree, it looks a little too simple, but it's fine. What I'm more concerned is the content of the album. Is it too much to hope for 70 min of music like TDK? I hope they at least release extra music like Sherlock Holmes 2 and Inception.

cheesy2012-06-08 03:34:14
I certainly hope it gets a TDK/Inception treatment as opposed to a Sherlock 2/On Stranger Tides treatment. The way things at RCP have been looking with recent major releases, I'm a little wary. Plus, no JNH. I don't think they'd pull something too upsetting with a score this big, though.

Yeah, this might just be the most anticipated score of the year, and I think Zimmer knows that. I hope we at least get the traditional 50-60 minute album we usually get from him.

Mr. Fate2012-06-08 04:11:08
Huh...When I saw this cover get posted elsewhere, the first thing that popped into my mind was: "Okay, why do we need a custom cover for a score that isn't due out for like another month?"

And my very next thought was: "Why did they choose to use a little kid's chalk drawing of a bat for the cover?" LOL! My bad. I do hope for a more-than-average release for this.

And reasonably, they shouldn't be able to pull a Sherlock Holmes 2 here again with, "Hey, if you buy the soundtrack, then you'll get three bonus tracks! But wait! The bonus tracks aren't actual score; they are just more traditional and/or experimental, period music like 40% of the score already is!!" Nope, I cannot see any excuses for that being allowed to happen with TDKR.

MGDrone2012-06-08 04:34:39
Haha, I guess you're right Mr. Fate. I'm just so traumatized by Zimmer's recent albums that I fear that this to be only slightly better. The tracklist show reveal how it'll end up. I heard the tracklist details will be shown this month.

Mr. Charles2012-06-08 04:55:32
Damnit! Really, THIS is the cover? Like Mr. Fate, I saw this cover elsewhere earlier today. I saw it and thought, "oh that's cute". Had no clue it was the commercial cover.It looks like a boomerang. I'm not impressed, and not happy with it.

I'm gonna have to agree with Cheesparty about the continuity of the trilogy being absent here. Oh well, I have a guy who can make me a better cover with some artwork / stills released form the film.

Now, regarding the OST / AGoS treatment, Zimmer has no excuse. NO EXCUSE. I'd like to think the reason why those two scores sucked ass is because he's been hard at work on this, which should be the truth. If it fails to impress and is as horrible as those two releases were, I will probably lose all hop in my favorite film composer of all time.

That is all.

The tiny thumbnail icons for the cover as seen on the left hand side looks much better than the actual full size version!

wts2012-06-08 08:01:16
cover looks like a kids film...

This better get better, because at this point Ive heard more of Zimmer's stuff as UNAUTHORIZED rather than AUTHORIZED lately, and Im getting pissed about it...

Ds2012-06-08 09:09:12
Hehee I think I'm the only one who finds this cover art cool and stylish. I'm pretty sure we're gonna get a decent release. Zimmer seems to be so proud of TDKR that he WILL care about the soundtrack album!!

And don't forget, we got an expanded for TDK! We might also get one for TDKR, if the original release not enough is.

MGDrone2012-06-08 17:17:18
For those who haven't been following the TDKR discussions on other forums, the album art has something to do with the movie's plot. It's not just something random. It was shown in the trailer, actually. I personally like it.

The only way I see them making a 2 CD special edition like TDK is if it's a huge commercial success like TDK. It'll be hard to beat, though. It was number 1 on the iTunes charts for several weeks, so TDKR needs to come close to that for it to reasonably happen IMO.

Hybrid Soldier2012-06-08 17:20:48
I'm pretty sure the CD will be as long as TDK.

You can expect it to have 40 min of actual "in film" score and HZ putting 30 min of some of his killer Theme Suites he spent more than a year to complete.

Dunno, we'll see ! Can't wait, a month to go !

I wouldn't suppose there are plans for any kind of limited edition album like we got for TDK? (I'm talking about the one that paralleled the standard release, not the 2CD special edition). Hopefully they would've announced it this early as I've already preordered the listing on Amazon.

I hope that the material used in the trailers will be part of the soundtrack... Loud & epic, the great Zimmer is back!!
