Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is BalfeI hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few<br>Batman Begins-The Training<br>TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending<br>Inception - Time, Mr.Charles, <br>TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan<br>Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain<br>Dunkirk - well the entire movieJustin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.
I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 things
Sure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.Just listening to this again. It really is a best of both score. What I think is so great, is that you can hear both of the brothers' own voice but they blend so well together!! Really really great score!<br><br>It's a really remarkable score, the swifts in tone between dramatic and jazz is top-notch. It's higher on favorite list from 2019 already, than I thought it would ever be.<br><br>Give me more Gregson-Williams brothers scores!!!!!!I was hoping for JNH, but we'll see what he does. JNH's themes were amazing zo it would be stupod not to use them. But he used the Pirates themes, so I'm feeling actually quite ok about itTrue, but he didn’t really get credit for The Lone Ranger or any of the Pirates films other than #5... those are billed strictly as HZ scores. I would say Christopher Robin likely was a result of the success of his Pirates score, and Timothy Green wasn’t really a Disney tentpole release. Maleficent isn’t a Marvel or Star Wars level tentpole, but it is still a blockbuster film that I think he’ll do an awesome job with.@Mephariel - you’re right. However Interstellar and Inception, musically speaking, are simple scores. They are moving, beautiful, and masterpieces, but still simple. Which is great! <br><br>But if we are wanting Zimmer to return to a type of music, I’d much rather prefer something along the lines of Pirates, The Rock, The Last Samurai, Crimson Tide, etc. Tonally, of course it would be more modern and new, but melodically a return to those forms would be a dream come true.
Geoff has done several other Disney projects besides Pirates 5.  (All Pirates movies since the first, Lone Ranger, Christopher Robin, Odd Life of Timothy Green). And I have to say that I would rather JNH return for the sequel, as that would allow him to expand on his fantastic score for the first film.@George<br><br>To be fair, Interstellar is a genuine masterpiece score and maybe one my favorite score of all time, but I am not sure when Nolan will allow Zimmer to return to that type of scoring. <br><br>Hell, Time is my favorite cue ever, but again, I am not sure if Nolan is interested in that kind of music anymore.  <br><br>I guess we will see with Tenet. And yes, I absolutely think Göransson can be a future star in the making and if anyone is allow write his or her own "Time" cultural moment, it may as well be him.@mephariel @mpolonest123 - glad I’m not the only one who’s more excited for those compared to cold and dark Nolan/Zimmer scores. I’m kinda over those to be honest.And if I’m completely honest, I’m more excited by WW84, Spongebob, Top Gun, and Dark Phoenix than another potential Nolan collab.@mephariel <br>I can definitely see that, especially with King Arthur and Spiderverse. I do think his music adds a lot to the films he scores (Steve Jobs and Man From Uncle being two great examples) where he consistently switches up styles and tones to keep things fresh. Maybe not the strongest theme writer but I do love his approaches.

That 'expanded soundtrack' is fake.
Just cut, copy and paste work from the original score

Besides, it's too early for an expanded release.

My apologies, after seeing the film again, I believe "Blood on My Hands" may play during Harvey's introduction, and the first part of "Harvey Two-Face" plays during Dent's speech. I think Peter is right. Sorry again.

For Hans Zimmer, the dark knight represents a failure to perform up to expectations. This score lacks the personal voice that ultimately ties it to its movie - there are not many characteristics that say “the dark knight” - I just feel “dark action film”. His music would have benefited from a more thematic approach.

lank14 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-04 00:00:00
Bzzz, wrong answer! "Blood on My Hands" does not play when Harvey meets Gordon. That part is from "Harvey Two-Face."

Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer. I really loved the OST of the gladiator and king Arthur those were really jewels. The Dark Knight i didn't hear the complete OST but the part that you can download. It was much the same sound, only number 8 sounded exception good.

sorry Hans, but I hoop that i am wrong and the whole cd sounds as number 8.

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-04 00:00:00
Yea, I'm putting Harvey Two-Face in as Track 3. It fits well after I'm not a hero... and flows well into Aggressive Expansion for track 4.

What is the song that plays at the very end of the movie just as the credits are about to start?

Batman begins was boring,
hoping that the dark knight was going to be less boring, I took a chance and saw it today and it's even more boring !
I almost fell asleep in the theater for god sake !
Extremely disappointing !!!

A very strong and sink score, but I like it ! The strings are superbly used and Hans Zimmer offers a dynamic music, as usual.

blood on my hands actually plays when Gordon meets dent and continues in the following scene at the Wayne building.

lank14 reply Replies: 0 || 2008-08-01 00:00:00
"Harvey Two-Face" is basically a suite, and the first part is really the only piece in the film. Most of that part plays during Harvey's introduction in the courtroom with Maroney.

It 's done. I have just received the cd I bought with Amazon. It sounds great. Purshase original versions is really the most honest way to appreciate the whole work of composers because electronic sounds are excellent.

3 - Aggressive Expansion - Joker attacks
4 - Always a Catch - ?
5 - Blood on My Hands - Bruce and Rachel theme
6 - I Am The Batman - Dent confesses
7 - Agent of Chaos - Rachel/Dent - Rescue attempt
8 - Harvey Two-Face - Aftermath of explosions, visits of Dent at hospital, Bruce mourns, Coin delivered.
9 - And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad - Bruce saves Reese and Hospital Evacuation
10 - Like a Dog Chasing Cars - Batman/Hostages/Swat
11 - Introduce a Little Anarchy - 2nd part of Hostage rescue and reaching the Joker
12 - A little push - Final talk of Joker w/ Batman
13 - Watch World Burn - 2Face confronts Gordon/family and Batman
14- A Dark Knight - montage and ending.

A Little Push contains the theme of fear or intimidation, used in BB when Batman faces the gang for the first time and when he faces Scarecrow for the second time.

By the way, Michael, good work, but I remember the middle part (the bombastic one) in Harvey Two-Face having taken place during the Maroni and the Russians arrest, although it was cut in the movie. However, it is possible some portions of this track appear during the scenes of Harvey in hospital.

A Sentient Being had the tracks right. I saw the film for a second time and was able to fill in the missing tracks.

"I Am the Batman" plays when Alfred is explaining to Bruce that some men "just want to watch the world burn."

The first part of "Always a Catch" plays right after The Joker gets out of the turned semi as Batman races towards him.

"Bllood on My Hands" plays when Dent is giving his speech about the dawn coming, right before he confesses.

I am trying to find the name of the music that plays during the Batman and Joker interrogation scene. It also plays when Joker is talking two face in to joining the dark side. I think it also plays at the end, when the joker reveals that Harvey was his "Ace in the Hole" It is a very soft bell or xylophone sounding bit. It is very quiet, but sounds awesome. Can anyone help me out?

Brandon, I believe the piece you're look for is played in the first track "Why So Serious?" It plays towards the end of the track and is very low.
