Michael Giachinno would be great to have.
Vulture did an interview with Zimmer talking about the "Classic" films he's scored. Apparantly TDKR and MOS are already classics.
Good interview. You can tell Zimmer listens to all the negativity thrown his way. It doesn't seem to effect his performance enough to switch up his style, so I'm not even sure why he bothers with it.
However you feel about his music, it's hard to deny Zimmer is a likable guy. There's an honesty and enthusiasm that's very relatable and rare.
I like Giacchino, but his kind of sound is wearing thin on me. He's good, but I want to see newer or little-known talent get more gigs. It's great he's still going for the traditional orchestral style -- and he's a 'safe' choice if directors want something like it.
Agreed. I love listening/reading his views on things.
Really looking forward to his TASM2 score.
Yeah. I always like seeing interviews of him. I want to hear his absolute best, and there are hints of that in MOS. I just feel like he's overtaxed right now. I feel like if he took a shortish break, his composing would be more relaxed as well.
One of the few quibbles with the MOS score is the lengthy title 'What are you going to do when you are not saving the World'. Something shorter like 'Welcome to the Planet' would have been ideal.
I really like Zimmer too... he's pretty relaxed and seems easy to talk to. It's just his recent composing output that worries me.
Whereas I hope Zimmer does return, if he doesn't then I hope that they give Tyler Bates a chance. I was honestly a little disappointed when he didn't end up scoring MOS. I think he's a very talented composer who deserves to break out of his shell with a project this large.
Maybe GOTG will be that movie, but tbh nothing written by Bates has impressed me yet. I think he'd be step down after Zimmer even.
I'm kinda hoping Hans keeps his Batman theme for the new movie, I'm used to it by now and gets me pumped up when it kicks in.
Heck no. Hans is too talented to not use him for another theme. I want to hear an even more somber, beautiful batman instead of the blasting theme in the dark knight. I don't want an action theme, but more of a depressing theme.
^ I think Howard Shore would have a great haunting theme for Batman. I also think that JNH and even Elfman could do a good quieter spooky theme.
I personally think Zimmer's next Batman theme will be BLASTING.
No offense, but the mentality of wanting a Zimmer score unlike much of his bombastic work imply that one wants someone different, but is afraid of there being less thematic material in the score if someone else takes over.
But I could be wrong
And John Powell did a great job of combining broodiness and action for his Bourne scores. He'd be my pic for the next composer
Hans Zimmer recorded a theme for the Batkid
Folks why are many of you against these classic themes.
Or even this for Batman himself only.
I say forget Zimmer and get Elfman, Williams, and Clement instead.
Good news. It's good to have a sense of continuity to a film series' music.
It'll be intersting to see Zimmer's second take on a Batman theme. I liked his Nolan scores, but I think they were lacking in the ominous tones that lend themselves so well to Batman. Personally I think Shirley Walker's score for Mask of the Phantasm was the best Batman theme we ever got.
Good news guys!
This is great news indeed.
When I heard they weren't using John William's iconic theme song for MOS, I was a little bummed. But when I heard Hans Zimmer's new theme, I was glad they did! I was completely blown away, such a grand and uplifting theme.
He better do something different to TDK for the Batman theme. Something very different and not just what sounds like a variation.
Just picture the first 30 seconds of his HFRO theme applied to Batman.
Something using a choir would be so good. Batman's dark and ominous tone just lends it self so well to a choir.
Gonna be awesome!
I'm thinking along choir lines as well.
So glad to hear he's back, his work on MOS was superb. It'll be interesting to see how he approaches Batman this time around.
