My Hope's on Blackhawk Down   Wednesday, May 23, 2001 (3:30 a.m.) 

Up until I read the mixed score reviews, Zimmer's score in 5.1 Dolby was the only motivation for me to go see the latest Bruckheimer production. I'm very sorry to hear it disappoints - I was expecting great things.

A Thin Red Line was hauntingly beautiful and Hannibal at times inspired, but...

I hope Blackhawk Down will finally give us back the epic Zimmer of old.

I highly recommend that you give this album a listen. You can't always go by what you hear. Christian found it to be not patriotic enough. That's understandable, but when we were attacked by Japan, things weren't looking good, so we didn't have much to be patriotic about. The film has not been released yet so no one can say if it fits the film or not. The cd itself is absolutely beautiful. It is something that I've never heard from Hans Zimmer before. It is subdued, there is no real action music on the album. But I suggest giving it a try for the uniqueness of it. Zimmer hasn't done this type of score in quite a while.

This is an exceedingly old topic, so I doubt anyone will read it. But, just in case... I finally did buy Pearl Harbor, and it is a thing of beauty. Short, and spoiled by a ballad almost as corny as the movie it accompanies, there are nevertheless flashes of genius.

I'm still waiting for Blackhawk Down though.
