Re: Greatest Composer of a Batman Film!?
While I think Danny Elfman scores were great, my favorite is Zimmer and Newton Howard's scores. I absolutely love Batman Returns score, it has some sort of somber fantasy quality, and I like the original Batman '89 score too, it is iconic and heroic. But the scores in TDKT blend so well with the emotions displayed onscreen. They have a distinctive quality, not one that takes you out of the film, but inmerses you in it deeply. I can't argue which one is better because I know nothing of music. But my favorite is TDKT score.
