Time to settle a few things.

1. Yes, the movie was awesome.

2. Yes, I do believe that Mr. Clemmenson has it out for Hans Zimmer.

3. No, I do NOT believe that Zimmer is Jesus coming back to save us all...

4. The lack of John Williams theme was not really missed. I could only place two (three tops) where the theme would have really worked. Everything else would have been forced into an equation (like those silly videos using Elfman's theme in Nolan's trilogy.)

5. The score is not all that bad. When listened to just on album, it does get a little tedious, but when applied to the movie, it works phenomenally well. OK, so I won't be listening to it in my car like I do with Star Trek and Bond scores, but that doesn't mean it wasn't acceptable. It sure the hell doesn't mean that it deserved one star.

6. I would like to see the Williams theme make a comeback, however small, in the next film. The film has the opportunity to go in lighter directions and still remain quite dark.
