Hans Zimmer tribute | Sputnik Reviews

the-dark-knight-rises-composer-academy-award-winner-hans-zimmer-tributeBloggers and social networks aren’t as quick to note the contribution of a movie composer like Hans Zimmer.  He may not be as telegenic as Leonardi di Caprio in Inception or Christian Bale and Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, nor is his contribution to a musical movie like the Lion King as flashy as Elton John’s, but at least one blogger noted his birthday yesterday with a suitable tribute.

One of the most important things in a movie is not the script, not the acting, but the score.  One of the best composers in the business today was born in West Germany 54 years ago and has been working in film for the last 28.  He has scored some great films with amazing score.  He has scored: Driving Miss Daisy, Thelma & Louise, The Lion King, Mission Impossible II, The Dark Knight, Sherlock Holmes, Inception and many other movies in between.  Like Akira Kurosawa, if you do not know this Academy Award Winning composer, then stop here, go listen to his scores and come back and agree with this post.  May I honour, Hans Zimmer.

Here are some songs from his soundtracks:
