To disagree...

I love Hans Zimmer. I love his music and I think he's a great composer. I listen to film scores all the time. I just have something for the reviewer, you are wrong about Hans Zimmer composing the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. His prodige, Klaus Badelt, was credited for the release of the soundtrack. Zimmer was only part of the process, so if you want to play the blame game on someone for the fault of the soundtrack, it wasn't just him. It's not that I want to put the blame on Badelt though, I thought the soundtrack was great, and he made beautiful melodies and great themes to use later on too. It was well played out.

I would also have to disagree with your opinion of the soundtrack. I thought it was a cool idea to have another composer and musician come and put a new style of music for the soundtrack. I will admit that I felt there were too many remixes within the soundtrack, but it didnt make it bad. The soundtrack itself was well written and so much better than having to listen to synthetic music. The score sounds wonderful and I hope to play it one day. I enjoy his music and playing it, for I am a musician myself.

As I read the review I wondered what it is about Hans Zimmer that is unlikable. As I know, he seems to have alot of passion for music and just writes good music, and just lets the sound and the movie mix together. It all falls into place. Zimmer's passion is shown through the music and, yes he reuses some ideas from other soundtracks, but what composer doesn't? It is how they write and it works. It's like saying that Alan Menken is reusing too much of his disney movie music material. It works and their just ideas to fill in, it's not like its the whole song. The music in question fits with the movie and is made with the same complexity he uses for all his compositions, like Sherlock Holmes, which was one of my favorite compositions he has ever done. This is just my opinion, but it seems there's alot of hate for Zimmer.
