Great soundtrack   Tuesday, May 12, 2009 (5:34 a.m.) 

I just wanted to say this film has a great soundtrack and it fits perfectly for the film. It's nice to listen to even without the film. But, how could anyone dislike the "Why So Serious?"-theme of the Joker? It's the perfect theme music for one of the most evil and terrifying villains of all time. The unnerving and static cello, the swollen and thick rhythms, the torturous and sly violins, the haunting and eerie midsection... All the dark, sadistic thoughts in the Joker's warped mind are there in that piece. "Even Satan was afraid."

Appropiate, perhaps, but in no way listenable.

Well, everyone's certainly entitled to their opinion. Mine is that this soundtrack is VERY listenable. It's one of my favorites.

You can call me old fashioned if you'd like, but Why So Serious? doesn't do it for me. I'm not such a traditionalist, I do enjoy rock elements in a score, but personally, I prefer something more varied than just one note. Not to sound like a snob, but even pop entuthiasts would think that is too simplistic.
