me who seldom watch any of these superhero movies and remakes went and saw the new aladdin last weekend.<br><br>based on my own experience of that remake i have come to the conclusion that maybe some of the reviewers are stuck-up and not open-minded? i did enjoy the new takes on some of the songs. the new movie felt like that. a new different movie to me. <br><br>i decided that i will go and watch these movies for myself now. and i would not watch (or listen to original scores) in advance to build up expectation. i will go and enjoy my time and the songs.<br><br>that's all &#175;\_(&#12484;)_/&#175; you can't please everyone.To be honest. I love the bonus score tracks, nut those remixes are a wazte of disc soace in my opinion. I would've rather have 20 extra minutes of score.<br><br>Let the Complete Score come!For everyone that's heard it, is the Deluxe Edition worth a double dip?@Hybrid is this the combination of FYC promotional score + official release by LLL?Use your hybrid skills to unravel the mysteries of the score.

It would be nice to have composers credits@DT<br>Disney definitely tries to put quality into their projects, which is why I admire them. As youve said, WDAS and Pixar are both churning out some excellent and original films. Even Marvel, despite its formula and flaws, tries new things with the films and stick closely to the source material. <br><br>The problem with the remakes is that they seem to be nothing more than cash-grabs that prey on nostalgia. If you are going to retell a beloved story at least try something different and exciting, instead of trying to copy/paste what everyone has seen.This is where I wish we could edit our comments.<br><br>Not only do you have WDAS doing mostly-new movies (I hesitate to say 'original') but you have Pixar doing them as well. Toy Story 4 was their last sequel for the foreseeable future, with them even eschewing the popular option of doing an Inside Out sequel for original projects.
I feel like people are overreacting in a way that suggests these remakes have far more power than they actually do. The studio that makes them is separate from every other studio. WDAS is still creating new content and will be for many, many years to come, long after the remakes have had their heyday.<br><br>If anything, the proliferation of superhero films is far more likely to drown out originality on that front: there are multiple studios doing it.Order I went with for the album<br><br>Everything I Need (Film Version)<br>Arthur		<br>Home Invasion (Bonus Track)<br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Ask the&#8239;Sea (Bonus Track)<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Ahab Waves (Bonus Track)<br>Saving Pops (Bonus Track)	Soundtrack	0	1<br>Swimming Lessons	<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan	<br>The Ring of Fire	<br>What Does That Even Mean?Soundtrack	0	<br>Obligation (Bonus Track)	<br>Dunes (Bonus Track)	<br>Map In a Bottle<br>Mera&#8239;Montage	<br>The Black Manta	<br>Trench Engaged (From Kingdom of the Trench)	Soundtrack	0	<br>Reunited		<br>What Could Be Greater Than a King?<br>Suited and Booted		<br>Between Land and Sea		<br>He Commands the Sea	<br>Ocean To Ocean (feat.

The cue I want the most is We Strike First.@Edmund<br>I cant agree enough. These remakes suffer from the issue of being inferior to the original source material, mainly because they rely so heavily on copying the originals so heavily. Im not necessarily against Disney updating their classics if they are willing to do new takes on the material. Take Jungle Book for example; they were able to do something fresh with the concept while keeping elements of the animated film. Even Maleficent, which Im not crazy about, tried something new. <br><br>Another BIG issue Ive noticed is the fact that they lean towards hiring actors who cannot sing, or at least cannot sing on the level required.

Just want shrike death cue!I feel as though Menken did a bit more to differentiate his 2017 Beauty and the Beast from the 1991 one. The major pieces like "Prologue" and "Transformation" were left relatively intact but otherwise the rewrite was a bit more substantial than what Zimmer and crew did here. Compare the final battle music from the original (which consists to a large degree of upbeat instrumental versions of "Be Our Guest") to the remake (which is largely serious, straightforward orchestral action music). I haven't heard his new Aladdin so I'm not sure what the old:new ratio was there.<br><br>I'm not necessarily complaining, this is basically what I expected the score would be from the moment it was announced. The problem lies deeper, with the entire premise of these pointless remakes that allow very little wiggle room for freshness or creativity. Of course, I have no doubt this movie will make north of a billion dollars and give the Disney execs further license to print money. Maybe by the time they've remade every single film in their vault enough time will have passed that they can just start from the beginning again and nobody need ever be subject to the indignity of an original story ever again.It's a variation of the theme Anthem from the first Top Gun film by Harold Faltermeyer.whats the name of the song being played in this trailer?<br>is it available onlineThis is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.

I'm still not sure about Harvey 2-Face track. I'd have to see the movie again. I can't picture where it best fits in the film.

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!

There is a score that is used over and over again in the movie, during the fight scenes with the joker, it's also in the preview. Does anyone know what that song/score is?

Best Batman Movie ever. Best score. The wait was almost unbearable but really worth it - the music so suits the film. Mr Zimmer & Mr Howard are to be congratulated on another masterpiece.
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.

Ok, so ive seen the film now 4 times and im still having alittle trouble putting the tracks on the score with the scenes in the film. The majority i got, but there are some track titles that are alittle misleading. Does anyone know what cues are used in the different parts of the film.

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.

This score is excellent... among the bests in Motion pictures...just like , superman, star wars, jaws & crouching tiger, hidden dragon. Well done, Hans Zimmerman is a musical Genius, anyway.
