Yeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photoHah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.
This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.I like the tracksWow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.
Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2That recording footage makes it all the more baffling to me why the end product sounds the way it does.I understand the comments about the orchestra sounding like samples by some of the comments?<br><br>If you follow his Twitter you see the BBC orchestra recording the soundtrack.Season two is cool and Balfe’s music is bigger that season 1.Bit choirs also.I love Hillbilly also but it sounds very familiar just with different guitar instruments.Paradise is so emotional and sonically more interesting to me at least
I find Hillbilly more engaging than Paradise, even much interesting dramatic cues.Memorial is heart wrenching.<br>Definitely up there for this years scores.Fantastic music but Balfe and Zimmer.You can hear their different styles in this music.<br>Very beautiful soundtrackCouple of interesting things.

<br>That cuesheet matches in fact with the credits I posted above that come from JP's team.
<br>
<br>Interestingly, the 2018 Album does credit Williams very specifically on every cue any of his material is used (The % come from the fact Powell & Mounsey are ASCAP, Williams, Willis & Sener are BMI) :

<br>It's not unusual to have different credits for an album VS the same music in the film, depends on the deal that was made.
<br>
<br>Also, some incoherences here, like Willis credited for Lando's Closet in the cuesheet but not in the OST for the same track. But you can't take the cuesheet for absolute truth, additionals did a bit more than that, not necessarly credited, cause it's not as significative to program some percs on a track VS writing 90% of it ! :) Like Willis isn't officially credited for L3's Sacrifice (very end of Extra Deluxe Mine Mission) but has it on his website. Same for Batu with L3 & Falcon. So they had more to do than just what they are credited for... :)

It has been more then 10 years since my very 1st Hans Zimmer "The Rock" cd. At present I own more then 50 Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Been a big fan of his, I must say not every of the soundtrack of nice. I can listen to 100 times of The Rock and maybe just once of the other not so nice one. And due to hectic work and other lifestyle, I have neglected the much of Hans Zimmer works since the superb last samurai. I watched the dark knight and was blow away by the music. It sounded zimmerish was what I strongly felt during the credits. Due to Dark Knight I enthusiastically search for Hans Zimmer news and that was what bring me to this website for the very 1st time. True enough it is Hans Zimmer work!! Rush down the next day afterwork to HMV to find it. OUT OF STOCK. Was very glad when found it in borders. The soundtrack is EXCELLENT and definitely belongs to one of Hans Zimmer BEST work. A pity I didnt watch Batman Begins last time, else will have definitely get the CD. Now cant find it in CD stores. I have listen to many soundtracks including Video game music. Hans Zimmer is definitely someone who can tickle your emotions Up and Down and all around with his music.

Someone....please......I can't find the track title for the End Credits.... Can someone help me find the track title?? I know very well it is NOT in track 14-A Dark Knight. Starts like how Batman Begins' End Credits but it's abit different than Batman Begins.

The end credits has the beginning from BB, something like Star Wars always having the same End Credits opening in each episode. The opening of the TDK End credits is the same as in BB End credits, but in TDK it is followed by The Dark Knight cue.

Ladies and Gents,

The Dark Knight is fantasitic.

"Your" sound has come a long way from the days of the original Bad Boys soundtrack with Mr. M Mancini amongst others that I could mention that you have been a part of in the many soundtracks in my collection.

Well done.

I am off to the shops to buy my copy.

Best Regards,

Loved this Soundtrack. the Batman Begins soundtrack is the prelude to this score. But this one pounds you with the chaos and emotion.

From begining to end this soundtrack owns. It's a Dark Knight indeed.

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-28 00:00:00
Joshua, maybe I can help you with my own track list. You can later check it to see if I got it right :

1. Why So Serious? (9:14) - The opening scene (bank robbery), shorter in the movie.

2. I'm Not a Hero (6:34) - The Hong Kong mission, preparing and capturing of Lao.

3. Harvey Two-Face (6:16) - Harvey and Gordon/Fox and Bruce/Gordon captures mob bosses.

4. Aggressive Expansion (4:35) - The very end of the movie/murders of Loeb and the judge Surillo/The Joker crashes the party.

5. Always the Catch (1:39) - The only track I can't place anywhere; it is possible it is not used in the movie (It contains both The Joker's theme and a fragment of Nycteris from Batman Begins).

6. A Little Push (2:42) - Batman interrogates Maroni/Harvey interrogates Thomas Shiff.

7. Blood on My Hands (2:16) - Bruce and Rachel

8. I Am the Batman (1:59) - Harvey publicly "admits" that he is the Batman.

9. Agent of Chaos (6:55) - Batman rushes to save Rachel/Rachel and Harvey talk/The Joker escapes/The explosion (Rachel's death)/Aftermath (Rachel's goodbye letter).

10. And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (2:28) - Bruce drives Lamborghini/The evacuation of hospitals/Bruce saves Coleman Reese.

11. Like a Dog Chasing Cars (5:02) - First I thought this cue was intended to appear during the Batpod chase but was never used; however, this cue was used, but in another moment. When Batman crashes into the Pruit building to save the hostages (clowns). However, only the first half was used, right before the appearance of the Batman heroic theme.

12. Introduce a Little Anarchy (3:42) - This track picks where the last one left off. It goes during the Batman's fight with the terrorists (doctors) and police, while using his sonar. It ends during Batman's fight with the dogs and The Joker.

13. Watch the World Burn (3:47) - Harvey holds Gordon's family as hostages/Tossing the coin/This track is abrubtly ended as the theme from the end of "I'm Not a Hero" enters.

15. A Dark Knight (16:15) - This track is pretty much divided throughout the final scenes of the movie. First, it appears when Batman shows his sonar gimmick to Fox; then, it appears when police search the bridges; then, during the ferries situation; it ultimately makes its appearance at the end of the movie, while Gordon and Batman discuss how to cover Harvey's crimes; when Batman sits on his Batpod in the final scene, the first blast from the beginning of "Aggressive Expansion" pick up; it is then followed by End Credits intro from Batman Begins.

You can see I oredered these track according to their appearances in the movie. I honestly hope this is helpful.

Cheers!

Thank you for making this happen

Heres my track order with where the cues are used in the film. Like i said, i need help with a few of them because i dont have them all.

1.Why So Serious? (9:14)-The opening bank robbery and parts are used pretty much through out when ever the joker is about to appear. (kinda like the jaws theme)

2.I'm Not A Hero (6:34) - The scene with gordon and the batsignal at the beginning and it spills over to when batman goes to hong kong to retrieve Lao from hong kong. Also the last few seconds of this track are used again at the end of the film when batman tackles dent off the ledge.

3.Harvey Two-Face (6:16) - pretty much when ever Dent is on screen ( the first time we meet him in the courtroom, when they arrest the mob, after his accident)

4.Aggressive Expansion (4:35) -the first minute or so is when batman is running away and the police are chasing him at the end of the film. The rest of this track are when the judge and commissoner are getting taken out and the joker attacks waynes party.

5.Always A Catch (1:39) ?????

6.Blood On My Hands (2:16) ????

7.A Little Push (2:42) ?????

8.Like A Dog Chasing Cars (5:02) ??????

9.I Am The Batman (1:59) ?????

10.And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (2:28) ??????

11.Agent Of Chaos (6:55) When dent and rachel are kidnapped and batman and gordon are driving to save them

12.Introduce A Little Anarchy (3:42) The building fight at the end between batman the joker and the cops.

13.Watch The World Burn (3:47) when dent kidnappes gordons family

14.A Dark Knight (16:15) the first few minutes are when batman take responsibility for dents crimes at the end and i think the rest of the track is the end credits but im not sure....

Are the tracks on the album listed in the order they are played in the movie? They're listed in order in my iTunes, but some of them seem a bit out-of-place..

But about the music, everything's fantastic. I especially like "Like a Dog Chasing Cars;" you have both Batman's theme and the Joker's; the layout and dynamics of this score are completely blowing the soundtrack for Batman Begins out of the water. The harmonics are fantastic, as well as everything else about the album. Love it. Absolutely and utterly.

This is a good soundtrack. I've listened to it almost every day for the past couple of days and I'm loving every cue in the album. Watch The World Burn is a great piece and reminds me of a darker version Am I Not Merciful? from the Gladiator score. Like A Dog Chasing Cars is a great action cue and A Dark Knight is so epic and so emotional. I am loving this album more and more the more I listen to it!

I haven't seen a comment by Hans Zimmer on this, but in two places of the score (tracks 2 and 16) there are subtle but all too obvious nods to Elfman's theme! Listen closely "A Dark Knight" between the timings 7:20 and 8:14. Between 8:04 and 8:14 is almost blatant.

Overall a great score overall, and this little touch makes it even more complete. You aknowledged the "jolly happy theme" that came before, Hans! :)

If the music is great in the movie for my, then i can listen this music isolated from the movie.If the music is bad she will be bad everyvere.This is not about this score.
