The soundtrack reminds me of Morricone’s La Califfa.

Okay. You’ve convinced me.

Buying the soundtrack now.
Gonna wait until it’s on iTunes before seeing the movie, though.
I hate crowds.
Thanks for the sample.

Zimmer’s soundtracks for Gladiator and The Dark Knight/Rises were fantastic. I’m sure this one is no exception.

WOW!
I was listening to the first track, “Look to the Stars,” while picking a fight on another board.
I had to stop typing. I could not continue.
It is THAT awesome!

Must be me. Sounds..at least the 4:16 I listened to...like minimalistic, floating, ethereal stuff. Not bad for that sort of thing but if I must I'd listen to Novus Magnificat by Constance Demby.

This is an excerpt

The entire work is over an hour. It has it's moments but it's not worth wasting an hour on it unless you are trying to get some sleep or are into a ...romantic evening with your spouse. Trust me, women love this while being romantic.

Zimmer also did the music for The Dark Knight.

The man is a total genius.

It is absolutely marvelous. I’ll be downloading it, too. I haven’t bought a soundtrack since the first Batman movie (which I know regret).

“The Thin Red Line” is a great one, too.

Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard did did really nice score for “The Bible”, too.

I just listened to that, then went back to the Man Of Steel soundtrack.
It feels like Zimmer was trying to emote the feelings of one that’s been earned (The Dark Knight -painful, chosen, forced into their situation), and one that’s been blessed with (Man Of Steel -alone, gifted, alienated, forced to be himself).
He’s pretty damn good at that.

It is not Morricone, but the style reminded me of a lot of La Califfa.

You can’t.

Loved his work since The Mission:

I guess we're in the minority.

We hated this movie...BORING!

The characters were flat, the script was DULL and clichéd. No levity, warmth whatsoever. Just crash bang boom.

The Russell Crowe character was as close as it got to anyone having charisma and that wasn't much.

Zero chemistry between Lois Lane and S-man. Everyone was way too serious. They left out the stuff where Clark Kent is the bumbling alter-ego. The Christopher Reeve version with all its quirkiness was much more original and fun...all IMO. So much CGI...where has movie story-telling gone?

Morricone is a modern master.

His music is timeless and transcendental.

total assault on the senses... I saw it on Friday in glorious 2D...

I don’t understand why movies these days have to be this way... I guess it’s a total ADHD generation come of age.

"Morricone is a modern master"

Loved the theme to Carpenter's "The Thing".Never heard such sparse music sound so sinister.

Loved Zimmer's music to "Black Hawk Down".Even had some Somali-Metal happening.

To: Perdogg; Revolting cat!

I’m having difficulty searching for what typical album sales on a top tener were in June of 1980, 1970, and 1960.

Was it really only 30,000 sales to get there?

Actually, those of us who think the movie is a soulless Hollywood cash grab and can't touch the original are in the majority. 1978's Superman: The Movie got 93% favorable reviews, 2006's ill-fated relaunch Superman Returns got 76% favorable reviews, and 2013's "new and improved" reboot currently has 56% favorable reviews (it keeps dropping too: pre-screenings from studio suck-ups before the public got to see the movie were 71% favorable, then 59% opening day, now 56% four days later...)

Critics are paid to analyze a movie on its merits and look at these movies from a serious perspective, regardless of how many tickets the movie sold. Even the critics who "liked" the movie have admitted its shallow, and the negative reviews are piling up constantly, pointing out the numerous plotholes, weak rehashed story, and how the movie is devoid of wit or charm: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/superman_man_of_steel/reviews/?sort=rotten

The movie made a zillion bucks the opening week because a lot of the general public either don't care or don't know what critics said about the movie, and will go see the movie anyway because it has a "Superman" logo on the poster and they're curious about it. That's what the Hollywood studios are banking on. It has has an extremely slick advertising campaign and you can't get away from this "Man of Steel" stuff being plastered everywhere (if I see one more Gillette promo about "how does the Man of Steel shave?", I'll puke). Thanks to tons of product placement, the movie also consists of numerous battles taking place at IHOP and Sears.

It's also produced by Christopher Nolen (the Dark Knight trilogy guy with Christian Bale's throat cancer Batman) so the Nolan fanboys are just really loudly screaming that it's the "BESTEST SUPERHERO MOVIE EVAR!!!", and "SUPERMAN 4 OUR GENERATION!!!" which they would also be saying if the movie had Henry Cavill reading the phone book for two hours.

So it might be a flash in the plan success in the short run, but 30 years from now, the Superman people remember will be Christopher Reeve's version, and not this "dark and gritty" CGI explosion filled monstrosity. It could also drop like a rock the second week, once bad word of mouth starts to spread with the public. We'll see.
