The entire planet knows by now that Batman's next opus (The Dark Knight Rises) is about to be unleashed and already reviews of premieres are talking about standing ovations and delirious responses.
I have no doubt it will be a thrilling movie, I'm a big fan of Christopher Nolan, and Christian Bale is undoubtely one of the best actor around, especially when one need to paint the internal turmoil one experiments: then he's out there with the Tim Roth, Gary Oldman or Philip Seylour Hoffman, all actors who's eyes can act on their own and make you uneasy with the simplest and nearly invisible twinkle.
The score is written by Hans Zimmer and I know most of you are already shivering. The guy is uber good, has a huge Moog (he has good taste) and he surely makes movie soundtracks that are immersive and wide, slighlty disturbing when needed, has some cool guests (Johnny Marr...) but, for me, a bit too much on the heavy Tokai drums...
Part of the gigantic media frenzy around the release of the movie, the soundtrack can already be listen to online on http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=34498 and it's very interesting to hear it as it is, without the images from a movie we haven't seen yet and not already associated to scenes and moments: a great blind test and a precious moment of good soundtrack music.
