Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell...
...and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.
love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.
M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.

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."

If you can't find how dramatic & masterpiece is this score then you don't know anything about music

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.

"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?

Michael reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-31 00:00:00
Thanks for the follow ups! I will continue to play around a bit more.... especially reording the ALways A catch to play farther up.

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.
