What stuck me most about this so-called review was the author's obvious lack of understanding or knowledge of these new Batman movies. There is a clear and understandable appreciation for Elfman's work; however the bizarre insistance that some thematic elements should have been brought along for the ride. Clearly, there is no understanding of the concept of "rebooting" a franchise, so allow me to explain: the point of going back to Batman's origin's was to COMPLETELY distance these movies from the first four. These are are not prequels and have no connection to the other movies. Therefore it not only wouldn't have been inapproproate to continue Elfman or Rosenthal's thematic approaches it would have been a disaster. You should really learn more about the behindp-the-scenes stuff before you start making comments like that.
