Does the author of this review have a bias against Hans Zimmer?

He consistently credits "Hans Zimmer/Various" in the Zimmer scores reviews, he consistently writes about "Zimmer's crew", etc. even when speaking about themes that are known to be composed by Zimmer (for instance the Wonder Woman theme).

But when it comes to Danny Elfman, he seems to ignore the presence of 3 ghostwriters, plus a few additional arrangers/orchestrators.

In other terms, Geoff Zanelli helping on a Zimmer score is unacceptable ghostwriting and makes it impossible to attribute any merits to Zimmer himself, but the very same Geoff Zanelli helping on an Elfman score is OK?

Anyway, the score by Danny Elfman and his army of ghostwriters (I had to write that, sorry big grin ) accompanies the movie well enough. It successfully suppresses any kind of epicness/danger/tension/seriousness/boldness/theatricallity that Joss Whedon's rewrites/reshoots forgot to erase. It blatantly shows how childish and weightless the movie is, something that a Zimmer or Junkie XL score would have partly hidden.
