Um.... but don't you think that the content of the movie should have something to do with the way that the music for that movie is percieved??
Also, the "What do we do? Yay! It's Batman" Genre is how Superhero Movies used to be when they were at their grandest. Surely you remember Superman. If you think that's old and dull, cool. Don't watch it more than the one time you absolutely HAD to sit through it in the theater. Ya know? Elfmans music was a perfect fit for THAT Batman. And it was Elfman who redefined himself as a composer to write that score. Howard and Zimmer didn't budge at all to fit the film, but rather tried to force-feed their current favorite things into the movie. That's what I don't like about it in perticular. You can probably say the same thing about the Elfman score, but the big difference is that Elfman not only redefinied himself, but he composed a very exciting score that truly fit the movie. And to me, this score fit the movie about as well as OJ's glove.

Anyway, I hope I haven't insulted or anything here. Just wanted to create some food for thought. You do have some great thoughts, but I think that opinion-based issues can easily throw off rational discussions a little.

Happy listening.
