    Batman Begins Soundtrack

    If anyone is interested

    http://www.so-net.ne.jp/movie/batmanbegins/

    James Newton Howard is one of my favorite composers, but I somehow doubt I will like this more than Elfmans music. I'm not even that big an elfman fan but that theme from 1989 is simply perfection.

    I have to agree, although I tend to avoid these composer controversies.

    The theme created by Elfman went on to redefine what Batman sounded like just as Tim Burton redefined what Batman should look like (look at the failure of the subsequent releases after they started taking the films away from Burtons dark moody atmosphere back to the Adam West style of thing.) The two were a splendid match and the fact that Elfman's theme has had the staying power of sticking with the Batman persona for 15 years after the fact says a lot for the composition.

    I'm surprized nobody picked this when there were threads for Favorite soundtracks. I still remember as a kid waiting in line for about an hour to see a midnight showing of this when it came out. The Music the and the Main Titles were certainly like nothing I'd seen or heard before - I was blown away.

    Hey how about the "original" batman theme from the 60s tv show??? Actually, when the first Batman movie came out, I had a friend who went to see the movie and complained that they weren't using the music from the tv series... I was laughing for days... But the elfman score is definitely great... It'll be intresting to see what howard does...

    I'm no prince fan, but I thought his music was a perfect fit for the joker.
