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

I believe that "Chevaliers de Sangreal" is by far the best piece of music that I have heard in many years. In the beginning of the piece, I have the image of Mary Magdalene quickly leaving Jerusalem, afraid and fearful of her life. She dies an ignominious death somewhere in southern France, but there are people there to protect her, and her daughter Sarah. They love her with all of their heart, truly wanting her to take her rightful place in the world.

The Chevaliers de Sangreal preserve and protect her blood line throughout history, feeling that this is a holy task. Even so, the soul of Mary Magadalene cries out from the grave in firm conviction of who she was, and who she is, proclaiming her divinity. Then the music cresendos, leaving the listener with the feeling that the proclamation is there, but not complete. The music fades, as if to say that Sophie must freely make up her mind what to do.

I understand why one would feel a sense of being incomplete when hearing this piece, but I feel that this is exactly what Hans Zimmer wanted to so. The story is not yet over, and more chapters have yet to be written, but that is for the royal blood to do.

My congratulations to Hans Zimmer in creating truly an outstanding work of art. If there a regret, it is that I want to hear more of the "Chevaliers de Sangreal", but then again, it is in its incompleteness that makes it great.

My God! So this is the meaning of "beauty"! "Chevaliers" and "Kyrie" have taught me to be still and, not just listen, but to hear. I've enjoyed classical music all my life, but not to this extent. Zimmer and company, especially Hila Plitmann with the voice of an angel, have taught me a fuller meaning of joy.

Zimmer's score for "The DaVinci Code" is far and away the finest neo classical work today. In an effort to reach the viewers' less pedistrean self, Zimmer creates a locus for the meeting of a series of "God notes", a thema that trancends the earthly realm and transports the listner to a more enlightened plain through the absolute beauty of his work. Bravo Herr Zimmer!

I also love this score, especially "Chevaliers De Sangreal". It is a strong track on its own but when watching the movie it unfolds its power even more - just a perfect emotional end track. I love the way how Hans Zimmer raises tension in his scores that keeps you out of breath and then suddenly releases it with a single deep note. it makes me always feel like "wow!".

I`m writing from Poland. I`m a dj and I usually don`t listen classical music, but I must say that I`m impressed and fascinated of Mr Zimmer productions. Lately I went to cinema to see The Da Vinci Code. Music just killed me and blow me out from my chair - so awesome it was!!! I got already soundtracks from Gladiator, Last Samurai and Da Vinci Code.. and these are the ONLY soundtracks that I have. Great job Mr Zimmer for "Chevaliers De Sangreal" (The Da Vinci Code track 13), awesome tune!!! I enjoy listening it in my club at full speakers power :-)

Hi,

I must say this is a gripping piece of work, nothing sounded so beautiful to the ears for me since Mozart's Requiem. Does anyone know where to find the words for 'Salvete Virgines' and ' Kyrie for the Magdalene'? if anyone does can you send an E-Mail to me? thnx

The ability of Mr. Zimmer to find always the right mixture between movie subject and human feelings is a very well done job.
Now, in his best years, the excellent results of his works, show us that also in the future we will have the silent pleasure to listen and to admire the results of the special gift that the nature gave to him, as an exceptional composer.

The score throughout the film is beautiful yet subdued with a soaring gloom. It is less inspiring and more mood than I anticipated. “Chevaliers De Sangreal” (trk 13.), however, knocks your heart out through your chest cavity. It is like riding a kiddy roller coaster, cute fun and all, and suddenly it jumps the tracks and flies through the Grand Canyon.

I absolutely LOVE the music from this soundtrack. As soon as I saw the movie I went home to find out who the composer was and as soon as I saw is was Mr. Zimmer i bought the CD and have listened to it many times in the few days that I've owned it. Mr. Zimmer I absolutely love the music that you write. Thank you.

Have you seen the movie reviews at IMDb? Many people really critize it, drag it through dust and what to burn it, but in the end they always say something like "it was just the music preventing me from walking out of the theater."
