I remember being extremely irritated after leaving the theaters back in November when I watched Interstellar. The movie alone got on my nerves [specifically and almost strictly, the ending], the inaudible dialogue was frustrating, and then there was my lost hope that Zimmer would finally release a score worth buying. Sadly, Zimmer has once again failed to live up to the hype and I simply don't understand how people can praise it--the only reason that I can think of stems from a Spongebob episode where Squidward says "If we play loud, people might think we're good." And that certainly seems to be Zimmer's problem and although the organ is a great instrument, Hans doesn't show it off in a way that really gets the "feels" going. The ambience was particularly damaging considering that it's just noise that you have to force yourself to sit through to get to the somewhat interesting spots. This was a poor attempt to mask Zimmer's methodology and to pass it off as something "fresh." I agree with all of the criticism; but what I want to know is when will Hans put out a GOOD score?
