"Red Dragon" is an amazing score. I don't care what anybody else says. Hans Zimmer is a good composer...but let's face it...he's no Danny Elfman. Danny Elfman is a ten times better than Zimmer will ever be. "Red Dragon" is very ominous. Theres so much tension in the score, I thought I could cut through it. "Main Title" is a very fast, choppy piece. And this was not Zimmer's job! Zimmer didn't write that much music from the CD. Klaus Badelt was there and as on "Silence of the Lambs", so was Goldberg Variations by Bach. Zimmers was ok, Elfmans is better. Zimmer held back on "Hannibal", he was acting like a "very shy boy" (hee hee).
