I do adore this soundtrack, and enjoy the dark beauty of it.

> true on what you said but not by a long shot fanboy

you've got a bloody cheek calling this guy a 'fanboy' when your clearly in love with Hans Zimmer. A fanboy is someone who is so obsessed that can no longer reason objectively. Ken was right in what he said earlier, and I wish him well in his efforts to become a composer. I too understand his frustrations with the laziness off many of the guys getting paid top dollar. Zimmer is one of the laziest composers in the history of filmmaking.. he is joined by other lazy guys such as Klaus Badelt and many many of his other colleagues. Harrry-gregson Williams, a friend of Zimmer, had a flop on his hands with narnia and when the inevitable comparisons with Howard Shore's sterling work in Lord of the Rings arose, he totally dissed Shore. This arrogant attitude is prevalent amongst every single one of Zimmer's 'Elite'.
If there could be any criticism of Zimmer for being German (and there has been much comment of this in the thread comments for this review) it's that he's basically setting himself up as the Hitler of score composing. He's formed his 'elite' of henchmen who all think just like him and never question his style. And he's fired up many people with enthusiasm with nothing more than the power of his voice, just like Hitler.. that's a feat, however if you examine what the guy is actually saying.. (albeit with music not words) you will see it's equally as hollow. It's all a facade, a front. And guys like Zimmerito and Ivan are like the young boys who were brainwashed by Hitler into serving him without question. It's truly frightning what he's done. Zimmer has in the last 10 years swarmed across Hollywood with his cronies and acolytes, sweeping away what remains of decent scoremaking in the process. He's an arrogant, egotistical creep in my view. He's very self-indulgent and lazy in his work. I'm not saying others such as Horner or Williams aren't also repetitive.. cause they are... but Horner has been composing for 25yrs and Williams for at least 50! I hardly think you can say Zimmer has had enough time in which to exhaust himself.. and yet he has.. he's a one trick pony and at long last he's finally being revealed for the scourge he really is. I applaud Mr Clemmensen for his highly accurate, and biting review. As the very first comments on this review stated.. It was well overdue!
