..the Thomas and Martha Wayne death scene cue in 'A Beautiful Lie' and the end of 'Black and Blue' is the first bit of film music to make me cry in a long while.

For all his faults, whether you like it or not, Hans knows how to score a scene perfectly and extract every last bit of the emotional context out of a scene.

Both those scenes were expertly cued.

Derivative and using bits from old scores? Please..they ALL do it so I hardly think going on about that is worth mentioning so much.

Sometimes, it is worth listening with your heart, not with your head.

Same here. For such a critically-panned score, once wedded to the film it's extremely effective and sometimes moving. The music and dramatic beats can be transporting once you take off your MST3K glasses.
