HANZ ZIMMER?????? Paper House, Gladiator, Heat??? he can't do Superman . . . JOHN WILLIAMS does SUPERMAN!
"This is not your father's Superman"
(no; its Gordon Jr.'s Superman) well, I was seven in 1978 when Superman "You Will Believe a Man Can Fly" came out and Jr. is much older than seven so its more like "This isn't your Uncle's Superman"
So all day long the noise of battle roll'd
Among the mountains by the winter sea;
Until King Arthur's table, man by man,
Had fallen in Lyonnesse about their Lord,
King Arthur: then, because his wound was deep,
The bold Sir Bedivere uplifted him,
Sir Bedivere, the last of all his knights,
And bore him to a chapel nigh the field,
A broken chancel with a broken cross,
That stood on a dark strait of barren land.
On one side lay the ocean, and on one
Lay a great water, and the moon was full.
Then spake King Arthur to Sir Bedivere:
"The sequel of to-day unsolders all
The goodliest fellowship of famous knights
Whereof this world holds record.
Such a sleep They sleep?the men I loved.
I think that we Shall never more, at any future time,
Delight our souls with talk of knightly deeds,
Walking about the gardens and the halls
Of Camelot, as in the days that were.
I perish by this people which I made,?
Tho' Merlin sware that I should come again
To rule once more?but let what will be, be,
I am so deeply smitten thro' the helm
That without help I cannot last till morn.
Thou therefore take my brand Excalibur,
Which was my pride: for thou rememberest how
In those old days, one summer noon, an arm
Rose up from out the bosom of the lake,
Clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful,
Holding the sword?and how I row'd across
And took it, and have worn it, like a king:
And, wheresoever I am sung or told
In aftertime, this also shall be known:
But now delay not: take Excalibur,
And fling him far into the middle mere:
Watch what thou seŽst, and lightly bring me word."

oh . . . I AM ECSTATIC that Hollywood is actually using its arch nemesis YOUTUBE to promote the film . . . if you can't beat 'em join 'em . . . youtube is a perfect "ally" in spreading advertising/word-of-mouth.

Just my opinion but im very underwhelmed by the soundtrack. There are a few good action tracks but there is no signature music. The only track i like is the one used in the trailer which is track 17.

I wonder mark if you've seen the movie yet. Soundtracks are unique music, meant to work as a tandem with something else (the movie). There have been soundtracks in the past that I've listened to before I saw the movie, were underwhelmed, but then ended up liking after I saw the movie.

No i havent yet and thats a fair point. I just felt the style feels "wrong" for a superman movie. Maybe im too caught up in the williams soundtrack. I also prefer composers who uses themes in movies although that's kind of a dying breed these days

WOW those are low scores for an early release. Don't worry fan boys. Critics Hate Zack Snyder....so it still could be a really fun movie.
Jun 11 - 07:26 AM
I am pretty surprised it is as low as it is. Even average super hero movies end up in the mid 70's. I just think critics hate snyder as you say.
