Soundtracks are such an important element in films, they are, in essence, another character. Here are a few of my own personal favourite composers, Hans Zimmer (Man of Steel), Thomas Newman (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Harry Gregson Williams (Total Recall)
Due to the financial and the fan reaction to the latest Superman adventure, I thought it would be good to react upon the impact of a truly good soundtrack on any film.
Hans Zimmer, born in 1957 in Germany, has had a truly successful career, he is the man behind the music, quite literally. Zimmer’s first big break in the movies, was his composition in the successful Rain Man (1988).
Since then, he has composed his virtuoso, brave and brilliant music for films such as:
The Dark Knight (2008)
And most recently, the blockbuster, Man of Steel.
In a world of movies with distinctly average soundtracks, the composers who create music with such heart, deserve to be recognised. Bravo Hans Zimmer.
