Zimmer Achieves Greatness

Here the thing about this new Superman film. First of all, there were delicate moments in the film (an example is when Clark, as a boy, is comforted by his mom at school). Second, there were many synchronization points to the film. Third, it worked well with the film. Zimmer's doomsday theme representing the hatred that Zod has, was perfect for the visuals of the film. I loved the drumming and thought it brought out the Superman Zack Snyder wanted to portray. Seriously though, can you see John William's theme in this film? I can't. Excellent job to Zimmer for going out of his comfort zone and for Zack, who trusted in this great composer. The music complemented the film well. Although I wish Zimmer could have used trumpets in at least some cases, that's fine that he did not. Zimmer loves his trombones, but that's his style.
