Hans Zimmer

Something I have been contemplating recently is that the impression a motion picture creates is, I believe, usually at least 50% due to its music. I mean, how else can a man dressing up in a vinyl costume and doing preposterous things, for example, possibly appear credible to grown adults?

Music is 50-60% of films, I believe, because it is a language of emotion. It is very powerful, and it is still being made very well. Not in the charts, of course, but in cinema. Here it is even being paid well, which is in my opinion a great thing.

One of the best (though he does delegate a fair bit of the work now) is Hans Zimmer, who has been going for a very long time. His music is very powerful, blending synths and orchestra. I like it a lot. If you don't like the films (I don't especially) think of it as classical music:

This was actually not one of Hans Zimmer's best soundtracks in my opinion... Okay, I've revised my opinion!



As for the film, I actually thought it was incredible - a visual spectacle - and did raise a lot of interesting themes. Superman was almost like a messianic figure.
