No matter how many times it needs to be beaten through their thick skulls inevtiable comparisons between Begins and the originals are going to happen. Everything compared from quality of the film-making, to writing, to the acting, to the nipples or no nipples on the suits or how tight their pants were. Why? Nolans' work, Burton's and Schumacher's own monstrosities all were results of their OWN visions of Batman. They have nothing to do with one another (I'm sorry but Forever and Robin were nightmares best left forgotten). The same goes with their soundtrack and score. I love Elfman's work with Batman. The theme was grandiose, epicly heroic, blah, blah, every cliched word you can think of because I think it epitomizes campy superhero fun. However, just because Begins score isn't as drum-pounding, and more low-key doesn't mean its anything less good. It fits perfectly well with the movie, subtle, haunting, and dramatic. Do we seriously need guitar strings for tear-jerking moments like so many badly done scores? Heck no.

And I don't know about the rest of you and the dude who wrote the above review but I thought Forever and the fourth film had HORRIBLE soundtracks.
