"WTF"   Saturday, January 21, 2006 (2:33 p.m.) 

What is wrong with the review writer. Has satin infected your thoughts or are
just a sick feak.
Without Hans Zimmer, this movie's score would have been a "nightmare" but with Hans Zimmer it was dream come true.
I don't think, and probably most intelligent people would agree that you shouldn't be considered for writing a review because of your twisted, opinionated ideals.
You obvioulsly have someething against great composer, so you must not like mozart, John Williams, etc.
Get a frip, a grow a brain, and except that Hans Zimmer is by far one of the best modern day composers alive.
So suck it upm get over yourself, and get a life. Cause you need one bad.

> I agree.

I agree with both you and ethan. I feel that the original reviewer was expecting too much from a disney summer blockbuster. I am a die-hard POTC fan and i feel part of this is because of the music. I feel that with another composer the music would not have the same moving effect. And for those of you who feel this is not swashbuckling enough, perhaps you need to listen to it again. The music was perfect for the right parts. Pirates lived an action packed, powerful life, which is exactly what this music is . Some scores you can never remember, and are in the movie just so there isn't quiet time. With POTC the music is part of the movie. Hans Zimmer was not in this project just for the money. If he was, it would not be the moving, sensational piece of art that it is. Pirates of the Caribbean is a powerful, trilling movie, and so is the music.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that Hans Zimmer is one of the greatest composers alive. In fact I don't think he would even agree that he is one of the best; I'm sure he realizes that he isn't in the same league as John Williams or Howard Shore. But I do think that the reviewer was rather harsh with his POTC review. Even though the soundtrack is highly simplistic and lacks much musical depth, it is still very catchy shallow music that can be enjoyable if you realize what the movie was meant for. When discussing movies like POTC you have to go into a different mindset and forget Oscar contenders. For what the movie was worth, I think that this score did a suitable job.

Yo, woohoo!!! Guess what, got a surprise for you, HANS ZIMMER is in the same league as John Williams, the academy awards are there to prove it. And don't tell me that you like Danny Elfman, cause it seems that everyone on this sit loves him, and that makes me despise him even more, so don't start.
