There isn’t a Hans Zimmer score that I don’t love.
Of course, there are loads that I haven’t listened to but he’s a musical genius so I don’t expect my opinion will change even if I listen to ALL of his soundtracks. The main thing that prompted this post (besides the fact that I’m overdue to write another favorite composer thingy) is that I watched some of ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ and his score was the bomb. Really unique for his style (based on the music of his that I’ve heard so far) and very, very fun. At this point, I can’t over-listen to it!
Besides creating some of my favorite soundtracks, Hans Zimmer has also scored some of my favorite movies – ‘Prince of Egypt’, ‘Rain Man’, ‘Gladiator’, ‘Batman Begins’ (with James Newton Howard; Zimmer scored the Batman scenes and Howard did Bruce Wayne’s parts which I think is so COOL, the way they split it up), the Kung Fu Panda franchise, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’…and then there are other soundtracks of his that I enjoy even if I haven’t watch the movies. Like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
(I will point out that quite a few of Zimmer’s scores are collabs with him and at least one other composer. But he is still a great composer in his own right.)
Definitely check out Hans Zimmer’s soundtracks on Youtube or Spotify – you won’t be disappointed!
