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

We don't know about you guys, but whenever we hear these songs, we literally get chills! Words cannot describe... we're listening to the soundtrack right now, and we're amazed at the awesomeness.

Zimmer/Howard/Nolan, kudos for all your hard work. You guys are amazing.

I am pretty disappointed that this score is not getting the attention that it deserves. And surely Zimmer and Howard are not getting the credit the should be merited after such an exhilarating score. The music could stand alone, but also made the The Dark Knight the movie it is. I'm glad to see that Heath is getting his due, but I really wish that Christopher Nolan, Hans Zimmer, and James Newton Howard would get theirs. It's a shame that this score will not be able to win the Oscar that it most assuredly deserves. Kudos to you Zimmer and Howard, for a marvelous piece of composition that I will listen to without end...or maybe until the 3rd installment by Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale as The Dark Knight.

Does anyone know where to find the cue used in the third Dark Knight trailer that starts when harvey says, "rachel's told me everything about you" and keeps going through when Maggie says, "don't make me your only hope for a normal life"?

Hans, I it was awesome to hear about how you developed the Jokers theme. About your method composing, and how you wanted to integrate music from Batman Begins into the Dark Knight at the MPSE Sound Show.

Take care

This is some of the most amazing music ever! I love it and I hope that Zimmer keeps on writing amazing music. I hope that I can find a score for the French Horn somewhere.

@KaijusRoyaume

No idea.

Most 2 cd limited editions have price ~29$.

60$ is too much even for complete score.

Well, we have just wait for any other info

Feared reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-22 00:00:00
For this price a complete score wouldn't be enough. It's just 2 single discs for chrissakes!
Why is the price so high? LOTR Complete scores cost this much, but they included muich much more music. If they'd release 4CDs with the full score to BB and TDK, then I'd be happy with the price tag.

I simply love the music from The Dark Knight. This soundtrack does such a great job enhancing the scenes in the movie and takes a great movie and turns it into an incredible movie! Mr. Zimmer is an incredibly talented man and with each soundtrack I listen to, his music gets better! Thank you so much for not throwing out this music after the unfortunate death of Heath Ledger! It would have been a shame to have lost all of this music. I think that your music is so beautiful. I listen to your music EVERY DAY. I can't seem to listen to anything else anymore.
