seeming score snippets at 6:29, 29:13 and the first episode is nothing about the score :/ mehhThis is a beautiful score by the way. I have feeling this will get lost with NTTD, Dune, and WW84 coming out, but people should give this a listen. The new overture is a nice remix of the main PEII theme. And I "Surfing Dolphins" is yet again a winner.Dave didn't work on it, but a few Blue Planet stuff were used so he gets some sort of credit in the cuesheet for "A Celebration".Who did Zimmer do this with? Shea and Fleming?
May Mr. Zimmer and his team be interested on “extracting” music from the human body for medical purposes?<br>You can reach me at:<br>jcp77452 at<br>ThanksNot only is the album fun as a concept album, it's a surprisingly good score to picture. The themes are really clear for each of the characters and the music really fits the action. Even though the action is kind of corny. Real underrated gem. <br><br>I finally watched the film and even though it's a sort of 5 or 6 out of 10 average/okay movie, it reminded me just how much personality gets injected when Hans Zimmer does the score. He really has a strong voice.Yeah this is a pretty fair assessment.<br><br>While I’ve found myself liking it less and less now that we’re hearing things like ME or Alita from Tom there are still some excellent tracks throughout. <br>(The Dark Tower, Collateral Damage, Guardian, It Will Fall, Roland of Eld)<br><br>My biggest gripe is with the purely sound design cues. They honestly go nowhere and end up padding the album out. What this score needed was a solid villain motif and some more orchestral underscore. It’s like one-half of the score is the more traditional side of Holkenborg whereas the rest falls into his early habit of just making noise.I give it a listen after three years, and i still like it.<br><br>If isn't as good as Mortal Engines or Alita, have a interesting aspects to enjoy: his main theme for Roland, some of the action cues are strong, even the dramatic ones (The Creed or Collateral Damage), some of the sound design are interesting.<br><br>Maybe the weakest aspect of the album, is the middle, some tracks are not that interesting to listen.woooooow <3
From the "No Time to Die" podcast description...<br><br>"You can also be the first to hear exclusive score from Hans Zimmer and brand new recordings from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra from Bond 25 brought to you from Decca Records."<br><br>First of six episodes is released on Wednesday 30th September!!that would be great@GR7 that sounds really cool care to share?Hi! What's the story with track "Into Space"? They really copy track "Planet Descent" and name it that "Into Space"?I agree guys. Yhis album and parts of the experiments are vey enjoyable. I tend to listen to OST prriodically, and each year there is one or severall scores that replace what I listen the most, and so on... but Dark phoenix is one I can listen every time. <br>I made personal suites assembling music from the OST and mixing it with expremients, and it results in a 50 min suites album, I really like it.
Same for me. I'm so happy ! :DA Celebration? It's actually on youtube now.Got it. I assumed as much for the first 3. Thanks.hahahaha ... crack, sorry. Well so far there is no news of anything.

Why Zimmer was not nominated? At least Man of Steel was a good job, same as Rush. The Lone Ranger (obviously disqualified when using the classic theme of william tell overture) and 12 years a slave (the worst could not win). Easy for Gravity. Buena pelicula de Cuarón.

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-17 00:16:28
Because the Oscars don't like blockbusters is your answer for Man of Steel. Rush probably came out a bit too early to hit the awards season wave. Lone Ranger, again, blockbuster, plus was critically savaged for reasons I still don't quite understand - I don't think the William Tell overture would have been a problem, though, considering The Social Network won a few years ago and that had a cue based on Hall of the Mountain King. 12YAS was Zimmer's best shot at a nomination, but I'm really relieved it wasn't, as it most certainly would not have deserved it.

NM2014-01-17 01:08:12
I don't really think HZ produced anything amazing this year that warranted huge recognition. Then again, I don't really care about the oscars. Great for the people involved, but feels oddly disconnected from the rest of us here in reality. I guess if you follow celebrity culture, then maybe not.

12 years of slave was a repacking of 'Time' and was quite distracting for me during the film. In fact it was probably the only subpar thing about that amazing movie, apart from the slightly weird Pitt character.

I don't necessarily think the Oscars don't like blockbusters, Edmund, I mean even TLR managed to get two nominations while Man of steel got none. If I cared about the oscars, that would probably make me feel vindicated in my opinion that that movie is a pile of obnoxious shit and I don't understand Americans' obsession with stale comic book characters. Maybe the Academy understands that Man of steel is just a really really bad film!?

"plus was critically savaged for reasons I still don't quite understand" - I agree, a lot of people made up their minds about that film before they saw it. It IS an utter mess, its tone IS al l over the place, it is incomprehensible in parts and on first glance it looks like a POTC rip off, but I hate the way we're all attacking a director who at least tried something different. Who spent a bunch of money on a film and actually made it look worth the budget, rather than just a CGI videogame like a lot of modern films. But hey, let's just stick to our lame, endless stream of crappy superhero films instead.

MacArthur2014-01-17 05:04:24
Man of Steel was fantastic. Best movie of the year and a lot of people would agree with me. Wasn't a superman person going into the film but man I hold a lot of respect for him now. (As a fictional Character I mean).

thejok3rrules2014-01-17 05:52:51
Man of Steel was an 'okay' movie... Calm down, mate...

Ds2014-01-17 10:22:51
Agree with MacArthur here. For me "Man of Steel" wasn't the best movie of the year, but by far the best blockbuster of this year. Its majesty, its serious tone, its perfect casting (Russell Crowe + Kevin Costner, what an inspired choice), its wonderful cinematography, the sense of urgency in the action scenes, along with a powerful and moving score by HZ. You won't find these qualities in any Marvel movie, for example. But it's a matter of taste, some people hated Man of Steel just because it was serious and "loud".

NM2014-01-17 11:37:33

"Man of Steel was fantastic. Best movie of the year and a lot of people would agree with me."

Off the top of my head I can think of 10 films that were better: Philomena, 12 years a slave, Filth, Saving Mr Banks, Alpha Papa, The World's End, Captain Phillips, Gravity, The Hobbit II and What Maisie Knew. A good mix of bigger and smaller films, all of which were *far* more entertaining, insightful and creative than MoS could ever hope to be.


Agree with MacArthur here. For me "Man of Steel" wasn't the best movie of the year, but by far the best blockbuster of this year."

What about 'Gravity'? I'd call that a blockbuster, very populist kind of film.

"Its majesty, its serious tone, its perfect casting (Russell Crowe + Kevin Costner, what an inspired choice),"

I don't remember anything majestic, personally.

"...its wonderful cinematography, the sense of urgency in the action scenes,"

I don't really see how not being able to tell what's happening on is equal to the above. Its cinematography is probably the worst thing about the film. Shaky, blurry, CGI landscapes, where it's not clear where anyone is, or what's going on. The same camera movements repeated over and over. And I don't think there was any urgency at all, because by the end literally everything and everyone was getting blown up, to the point it was numbing. Boom, bang, smash, superman goes through building, superman kills 1000 people, SMASH, explosion, bang bang. It was a videogame by the end of it. Of course a lot of people agree with me that the end of the film is a mess, I differ from many people by suggesting the beginning and middle of the film is awful as well, full of incomprehensible subplots and vacuous characters. The only character I really liked was Clark Kent's mother but even she was shit by the end. From the first minute it was a terrible film and it never stopped being terrible. The only credit I'd give it is its set design and make up is pretty good and I don't have a problem with any of the acting, I think they did their best with some piss poor dialogue.

"some people hated Man of Steel just because it was serious and "loud"."

It *is* loud, but loud in itself doesn't equal 'bad'. TDK films are loud. It's loud in a really obnoxious way. Between the non-stop LOUD explosions and the tedious, irritating LOUD repetition of the same fucking musical cue again and again and again and again it just gave me a headache.

"a powerful and moving score by HZ"

Entertaining on album, where in your head you can imagine a good film going with it. Horrible in the context of the film.

Ds2014-01-17 11:54:19
Well, NM, to each his own tastes. I saw Man of Steel quite a few times on blu-ray and love it even more. I can see what's happening in the action scenes, I love the pictures, I love the characters, I love the action scenes, I love the score.

Gravity, yeah, definitely the very best of the year for me, but for some reason i don't consider it as a blockbuster :p

MacArthur2014-01-17 16:34:56
Agree Ds Gravity wasn't a blockbuster.

Man of steel's Cinematography was fantastic it made the movie seem realistic. the landscapes where beautiful (I don't care where they were) Granted the blowing up buildings was a little much but if two gods came down to earth in full fury. I wouldn't expect anything less. The music score by Hans in the context of the film was perfect. the Piano part for his parent's. the Zod theme for when they were fighting the drums for oil rig, etc so on and so forth.

Man of Steel was an Amazing Movie!

Mortifer V.2014-01-18 02:29:25

A thought just occurred to me: won't Spider-Man be the fourth (not third) time that Zimmer has worked on the score for a comic book character? He did additional material on Iron Man.

Hell yeah, it definitely looks like MoS' little brother, with rolling drums and a big broad sound. Very curious to hear the full thing!

MacArthur2014-01-15 18:13:31
Does anyone know if Zimmer is doing MoS 2?

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-15 18:28:03
I think he's said in the past that he's iffy about it because he doesn't want to score another interpretation of Batman. Then again, he said he was iffy about Man of Steel at first and look what happened.

Personally, I agree. My own lack of enthusiasm for MoS aside, having the same composer write a score for the same character but played by a different actor in a different version...just a few years after the fact...feels really weird to me. Considering he's already doing Spider-Man now I really, really wish he'd slow down and focus more on a wider variety of Rush this year. I thought that was a great assignment where Zimmer's style really fit like a glove. MoS, not as much. Batman AGAIN...even worse.

MacArthur2014-01-15 20:17:46
Are you Kidding Batman was great! MoS was Great!

Although I do Agree on the fact that Zimmer would do 2 Batman's which would be odd. But I'd be Interested to here what he came up with for this one if he scored it.

I hope he does.

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-15 20:40:11
Batman was okay. I personally don't love what he did for that series but it did have its own strong identity. Worked better in the films for me than on album. But anyways, I was saying my problem is with him doing the same character twice within like five years. That seems just wrong.

Man of Steel, I think I've gone over this before, I don't think is much good at all. All those pounding drums that don't seem to serve much dramatic purpose. They're exciting but there's nothing beneath the surface. The biggest problem I think is that the constant low-range brooding in the bass region is just too similar to what he did for Batman. Those two characters ought to sound VERY different, but the scores are quite similar. And while the brooding works for Batman, who's a darker character, Superman should have had something more outright heroic, which Zimmer only delivered in a few parts.

Mostly I'm just irritated that Zimmer is getting to score everything these days. Goddammit, aren't there dozens of other talented composers in Hollywood? Give someone else a chance!

isildur2014-01-15 21:10:05
@Edmund, You mean you want your favorite, Powell :D

Ds2014-01-15 21:11:40
I hope (and think) HZ will do MoS 2. I think the 1st was really great and not that similar to The Dark Knight. Sure, both have a big broad bass-y sound, but the whole spirit of the MoS soundtrack isn't dark at all. A little melancholic and sometimes violent, but definitely not dark. I personally see a big, big difference between both scores.

For the Batman part, the best thing would be for Hans to team up with another composer who'd deal with it. After all, Hans seems to really enjoy more and more collaborating with other composers, so why not for MoS 2?

And let's not forget it'll be a Superman adventure in which Batman will also appear, not a real Superman/Batman movie. This means the Batman material may not be as prominent as we thought it'd be...

Mike2014-01-16 02:46:47
If Zimmer does MoS 2, I just really hope he'll actually use the main theme in its full form often throughout the movie, not just at the very, very end! :P

Edmund Meinerts2013-12-31 04:56:09
I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion. In mine, if Man of Steel is a 10 then the scale must go up to at least 20.

Mike2013-12-31 22:54:46
Are you not perhaps making MoS' score out to be worse than it is, Edmund? I agree it's nothing fantastic, but is it really quite as dull as you keep saying it is?

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-07 00:30:43
It's not awful, no. Like I implied above, a 10/20 (or a 5/10, whatever). It's neither the masterpiece most people here make it out to be, nor the disaster that places like Filmtracks make it out to be. It's nothing more nor less than a generic, interchangeable modern-day action score. If it was by a less famous composer for a less famous movie, I doubt anybody would be talking about it.

Mike2014-01-07 04:13:46
I actually find myself agreeing with MacArthur's initial post now...I still don't think the score is *amazing*, but I am liking it more within the film now than I did when I first saw the movie.

Zimson2014-01-07 15:37:24
The score itself is not that brilliant, I would call it good. But you have to admit "If you love this people" and "Flight" are awesome. There is this power in them that makes me really want to fly like Superman, every time. I think he pretty much nailed it with the two.

MacArthur2014-01-07 16:09:42
Don't forget the Sketchbook and What are you going to do.

Mike2014-01-07 16:31:36
Exactly, Zimson. If they wanted to give us Flight, If You Love These People, Earth, What Are You Going...?, and perhaps the Sketchbook suite, ditching all the other music, I'd be quite content. But the music I listed, despite the generic sound of the rest of the score, is quite good.

Ds2014-01-07 17:28:53
"the GENERIC sound of the rest of the score"??? What the hell are you talking about? The only thing that could be considered as "generic" is Zod's theme, because it's really simple. But even the way it is brought in the movie is definitely not generic. Just listen to the violence of the sound in "You Die Or I Do", that extremely agressive drum riff, i had never heard something like that in a soundtrack before. And the rest is anything but generic.

You sound like a friend of mine who's listened to that soundtrack one time on little laptop speakers and then removed it because it wasn't good.

badbu2014-01-07 19:01:50
"You sound like a friend of mine who's listened to that soundtrack one time on little laptop speakers and then removed it because it wasn't good." <- hahaha :D your'e so right!!!made my day :)

NM2014-01-07 22:25:49
"The only thing that could be considered as "generic" is Zod's theme, because it's really simple. But even the way it is brought in the movie is definitely not generic"

The Zod theme isn't that generic, but it was used horribly in the film. I still maintain that Man of Steel is a very entertaining album, but the score is terrible in the context of an already terrible film. It's just too damn loud all the time. I love the thwack and bassy boom you get watching a Zimmer-scored film in a theatre, but when it's non-stop it just gets wretched and annoying.

0-cool2014-01-07 22:45:58
in most of the scenes the sound effects COMPLETELY overshadow the score. "If you love these people" for example is completely inaudible.
There are only very few moments where the music is on the forefront

Mike2014-01-07 22:47:35
I agree, 0-cool. Flight is the only cue that's entirely listenable all throughout.

Mike2014-01-07 22:49:57
entirely audible*

Mortifer V.2014-01-08 01:56:34
"If You Love These People" is perfectly audible.

Mike2014-01-08 02:11:12
The ones I remember as being inaudible were Look to the Stars, DNA, Goodbye My Son, and some of Terraforming. The rest was generally fine, but of the album tracks, Flight sounded best within the movie.

Ds2014-01-08 09:05:44
Yeah Mike you're right. But to me the worst was the mid-part of Terraforming, it's the track's best part and it was really NOnot audible at all. You could notice it if you already knew the music AND payed a lot of attention, but otherwise it was just like there was no music in these scenes :p

All Zod-related material was very audible though, because it was always used for very short scenes, like 5-10 seconds, with little sound effect or dialogue. I think this is why so many people find it was "overused", because it was the most audible of the recurring themes (along with the piano tune in most flash-backs).

Mike2014-01-08 16:15:17
My apologies, Ds: I hadn't seen your response to me about the score being "generic". You do have a point, the drums are much different than most scores (I really like "I Will Find Him" for the intensity that the drums add, though however aggressive it may be, I can't say You Die Or I Do is a favorite). Also, your comment made me realize that I left out three things which are also good about this score: the last couple minutes of Terraforming (the big, grandiose part at the end is nothing short of brilliant, IMO), the alien theme (found in You Led Us Here, Launch, DNA, etc... It's very creepy and mysterious, which I like), and finally, Goodbye My Son, which is a lovely little track, but too short.

I guess by generic I was thinking of tracks like General Zod, Arcade, and DNA. But the problem is, the first two are used so much in the film that they're what I came away really remembering, while I felt the more heroic, Superman-related material was truly excellent but underused (when I said that my list of tracks up there was "quite good", I meant it: they get the most listens out of anything in my score collection, probably). And just for the heck of it, another "quite good" (read: excellent) cue is the one when Superman saves Lois, who's plummeting to Earth in the damaged escape pod. Gosh, I wish that had been released.

MacArthur2014-01-08 17:01:43
I thought that the Piano part in the film was amazing for it's use I also Thought that Zod's Theme was very good. Not overused I thought it fit perfect.

@ NM If it was so loud all the Time what about the piano part that was defiantly soft enough. (Oh by the way the last two minuets of General Zod are Breathtaking.

Are we sure the London Voices didn't just take care of "Eternal Father Strong to Save"? The random voices popping up throughout the score to add drama don't sound all that real to me. But I don't know, really.

MacArthur2014-01-06 04:12:40
You could be right there but also Gregson Williams was the Choir Director I think the part of Alabama with the Voices was & sounded like samples.

Hybrid, I have a question you might be able to answer: is the action-music midportion of the DNA track from any of the 7 unreleased minutes of Hans' MoS suite (you said it was originally 35 minutes)? I ask because it sounds a lot like the music in the last three minutes of the Sketchbook suite and uses that echoing percussion, if you know what I'm talking about, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was originally in there and Zimmer went ahead and removed it from the suite for length's sake. Plus, you've said before that if he shortens suites on album releases, it's usually because the music can be heard in other tracks.

I cannot seem to see (or hear) where CD 1 track 15 goes, the music does not match the scene it is titled from. Is that some kind of alternative cue? And are all CD2 tracks suites (aside from the sketchbook track)?

Mike2013-12-17 21:31:19
Track 15 ("I Have So Many Questions") plays as Jor El is telling Clark about Krypton. All the tracks on CD 2 are suites except "You Led Us Here" (which plays as Zod talks to Kal El in the dream/hallucination), "Are You Listening, Clark?" (which plays right after the oil rig scene, in the scene showing Clark's x-ray vision), and "This Is Madness" (which is a recording of the drums from the midsection of "Terraforming").

Poe2013-12-18 00:00:20
Thank you Mike. Are you sure about CD 1, Tr 15 and CD 2, Tr 4? I just saw the movie and the music in those scenes sounds different to these 2 tracks.

Mike2013-12-18 02:25:45
I'm at least sure about CD 2 Track 4. I may be slightly off with regard to CD 1 Track 15, but it definitely plays when Jor El is talking to Clark at some point.

Featuring Arturo Sandoval on trumpet & Johnny Marr on guitar !

Can't wait !

Whoa....this is from the score...and it kind of resembles the Horner theme... :D

Anonymous2013-12-06 02:23:00
say hybrid, would you be allowed to just ask hans if the old theme is staying or is that the kind of info that would be kept under wraps for now?

Mike2013-12-06 02:25:24
Well hey, the sample on the website has a LOT of the tone of Horner's score, so having heard that, I now would not be surprised if Hans kept the theme. The sample on the site doesn't even really sound like Zimmer!

Aragorn2013-12-06 02:32:03
If the music on the website is at all an indication of the final product, then Mr. Zimmer, I am legitimately excited for what you'll give us. It does indeed resemble the first movie's score!

Leo2013-12-06 03:12:15
Is the piece from the website a Zimmer cue or what? Just out of curiosity ;) It is a great theme, my hopes for the score has increased

Joshua2013-12-06 03:22:39
This kinda has a Thunderbirds vibe to it and I looove it!

Hybrid Solider are you gonna lock your ears away from any of TASM2 until it comes out like you did w/ MOS? xD

Duder Man2013-12-06 07:57:16
Played the two pieces side by side on the piano (Horners theme and trumpet idea from the website). Itts odd because the website idea uses a lot of the same shapes and melodic ideas as Horners (sometimes even reversing Horners ideas or opening them up to a 5th instead of a triad), but it almost sounds like someone trying to copy the original theme without getting charged with plagurism. I feel like, though Hybrid can confirm, this website trumpet idea is not the theme, but instead a variation written so to avoid any legal stuff with Horner over music used on the website. That said, given it's striking similarity, we could - for once - get some musical contingency between two composers on a marvel movie :D

badbu2013-12-06 08:00:48

badbu2013-12-06 08:04:22
BTW, i don't like the website music :/

isildur2013-12-06 09:33:14
Well, sadly it's just Horner's theme with subtle variations :(
Looks like the makers want to keep the theme. I hope this is not how the whole score sounds like.

isildur2013-12-06 10:54:41
Eagerly waiting for Interstellar teaser. Hoping for something really different from the previous sound of Nolan-Zimmer combo.

Ds2013-12-06 14:04:25
I really like that sample. It has something campy and old fashioned, while feeling brand-new and packed with electronics. My little finger tells me that people who always say Hans can't reinvent himself, will soon shut the f*ck up!

By the way, it's been a while since Clemmensen posted his last review on filmtracks. I think he's been killed by a heart attack when he heard the Rush soundtrack and liked it and then realized he had to write something positive about Hans...

Mike2013-12-06 16:21:55
Duder Man, I believe Sony/Marvel own the rights to Horner's theme, so Hans would be able to use it without any trouble.

Mike2013-12-06 16:53:28
And Ds, yeah, campy was my first thought, too, but I do like it!

Hybrid Soldier2013-12-06 22:49:08
If you want Hans's comment on it :

"I didn't do the trailer. I did the fanfare. It's Arturo Santoval, Johnny Marr, Andy Page and myself.'s just the demo mock-up. I didn't do the Trailer. Haven't even seen it."

Mike2013-12-06 23:18:55
Nice. I really am liking this music, if only for its loyalty in sound to the previous score! Is it confirmed to be the basic theme, or is it just a cue?

A) HZ didn't score that trailer
B) HZ did it really quickly just to help

I thought the Arcade theme was SERIOUSLY overused in the opening scenes of the film (when they're on Krypton). It plays:

1. when Zod disbands the council
2. In full force when Jor-El flies on that animal to retrieve the codex
3. During the scene with the "Ignition" cue
4. Again in full force during the "I will find him" scene.

And that's all in about 15 minutes!

NM2013-12-05 14:16:16
I agree with you. I found the score horrible and obnoxious within the film. Though no more horrible and obnoxious than the film itself.

Weird how good it sounds on album.

Ds2013-12-05 15:39:31
Well, the more i hear it the more i like it. And the more i watch the movie the more i like it too. That tune is simple but incredibly bad-ass, and that's fine because the MoS action scenes are bad-ass too.

NM2013-12-05 15:50:36
I think the man of steel action scenes are pretty lame. After the first ten minutes you've pretty much seen it all, because the same shitty fighting and nauseating camera angles are used again and again and again.

Russel2013-11-14 05:48:52
Basically the exclusive is the Red Steel Packaging. No additional music at all. Same CDs. Same Art on the CDs. Same exact booklet. You receive the DTS Headphone Code. It's nothing special, just for looks. The only thing that pisses me off (and this seems to be on all of the Red Target Exclusive Steel Cases) there's like a dent, or so it looks it. It's on every case I've seen, and it's upsetting. I still haven't unsealed mine. I want to wait for the next couple batches to see if they will fix the dent. Anyone else know the dent I am speaking of?

variations of it were used. the 2nd part (with the electronics) can be heard several times, and the strings/orchestral part were remixed for different scenes.

Zimmer needs to at least do the Superman material in the sequel. The theme needs to be developed. It had no development at all in the first film. We heard that one motif over and over again, and then BAM, the all-of-the-sudden full theme in What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving the World. I hope Hans will use the theme better in the sequel. It's a good theme and deserves to be used better.

MacArthur2013-11-12 01:44:43
In an Interview with Hans Zimmer, He said That was the point of the film he wanted to save the Main Theme till the End When Superman had completed his Mission of "saving the World" so to speak that's why he held it back.

Anonymous2013-11-12 02:49:51
The third trailer, or whichever one was called "An Ideal of Hope" about drove everyone nuts. I look forward to watching the movie again next Tuesday when it is released. Personally, I thought the restraint until the end was sort of nice. We did get a lot of great score and various themes in the film, and released for that matter. One of my favs is still the awesome Terraforming, which is much better on the Sketchbook track with the choir in my opinion. I think Hans is more deliberate than random. "What Are You Going To Do...." is one of the best themes I think he has ever written. I curious and certain there was a reason it was not played until the end -- guess we will see. I think it's foolish not to think a sequel was already being contemplated (or perhaps written in part, for that matter) while the first one was still filming. Will be interested to see where this Superman/Batman thing goes and how Hans is or is not a part of it.

Person2013-11-12 03:56:51
Well in Batman Begins, Zimmer said the same thing about the character earning his theme, but you heard Batman's theme well-used in there. I guess it just depends on the project, not the philosophy behind the scoring. I agree that What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World (annoying to write out, lol) is a really good theme, but I'd have loved to see even more of it in the movie, not just in the last scene.

MacArthur2013-11-12 05:19:24
Also the Theme through the Movie was the Piano part representing the relationship with him and his parents. and also the building up of his character also the struggles he had something to fall back on with that theme then when he conquered Zod the Full theme came in representing that he had done his job and saved the world in that sense it was great.

Mortifer V.2013-11-12 22:38:59
you can also hear a hint in "Flight".

Person2013-11-12 22:42:14
Well yeah, you can hear it in Flight, but that's my point: that's the only version of the theme that you hear before the fully-fledged theme is used at the end of the film. So if someone sees the movie who doesn't really pay attention to music, they'd have no idea the movie even had a theme!

Person2013-11-12 22:43:43
It's used in Look to the Stars and in the bus rescue scene, as well as when the colonel says, "This man is not our enemy", but again, it's the exact same version that was used in Flight. There's no clear alteration or development until the closing scene of the movie.

Ds2013-11-12 18:04:53
Judging by the score heard in the movie, it's nice but a bit repetitive, i'd say there isn't more than 15-20min of material (but i may be wrong, only saw the movie once)... and this material is very reminiscent of The Holiday and Driving Miss Daisy.

If 12 Years A Slave didn't even get a release (3'56" definitely don't count), Mr Morgan's Last Love won't have one.

I'm surprised barely anyone has mentioned "Earth"—it's a lovely take on the main Clark Kent theme, and I guess it's what Zimmer had in mind when he talked about "celebrating farmers" and all that. Weird, since he mentioned that several times, that the Earth theme was never used in the film. I think the movie would have benefited from it.
