    I love the movie, but I have to see it again without a doubt!
    Here are some of the songs that I like the most:

    Batman Theme: Magnificent!! for me the BEST Batman theme! It's complete masterpiece ... Danny Elfman is fuckin legend! 🙌

    First confrontation: It's Absolutely brilliant! Too much energy! Loved it

    Clown Attack: This one always made you feel like there were villains around you, it give me chills!! 🤯

    Batman to the Rescue: It's amazing what a powerful song can convey to you. The whole orchestra leaves me speechless. hands down! :love:

    The Joker Poem: A fitting theme for the twisted and mysterious character "The Joker". It makes me feel very nostalgic.

    Love theme: A very beautiful music. I love this score because it shows the good side of Batman, which is a kind human being and not just a dark man in a suit.

    The Finale: So majestic !!! Real music from a real Batman movie! Yeah 😎 Batman standing on that building in the night LIKE A BOSS!! 👑🙌

    Thank you @Syn Gates 🙌❤️

    Obviously you can't trust me. Who here would even wanna do that? Im evil.

    But even then, how was it even a secret?
    You know damn well I look younger than you and no one would ever think I'm 29 if I hadn't said so...
    Even though I'm technically older, I am not the one who's already suffering from baldness... and I am definitely not saying that my youth source comes from a spell I made to make your hair fall... the balder you are, the younger I look.

    Ooof ! Shots fired ! It’s getting a little toasty in here ! 🤣
    Tbh I wouldn’t have known your age either. Aging like a glass of fine wine my dear. However,
    Bald is beautiful so this is a win win situation regarding your spell work.
    ….and yes…I’m Switzerland playing it in the middle haha. You two crack me up !

    Anywho, back to our regularly scheduled programming… how about that AOTM ! 🙃

    Michael Keaton will never be that cool again..peak coolness. That Batman symbol was a brand for sure.
    In case you're interested: Michael Keaton's Batman is set to make an appearance on Andy Muschietti's new Flash movie: Flashpoint (Release date November 4th, 2022) 😄
    I know it won't have this great soundtrack at all 😆 and it may just be a fast appearance, probably a Batman for another reality/universe 🤔, but It will be cool to see him back into The Dark Knight's mantle 🤓

    You are making a couple mistakes here. You assume that my baldness is something that annoys me but the truth is... I LOVE it!!! Are you kidding me? No bad hair day, a simple but effective look and you know what? Because of this I will maintain my look up until I die!! And don't even get me started about the beard... by all means, continue your spell. I dont care about the hair, I am perfect the way I am!

    I win.

    Great pick. One of my favorite definitions of "genius" is one's ability to change the course of things in their given field. Elfman changed movie scoring forever and created his own genre in the process. Nothing like Elfman existed before him and there are a ton of composers who borrowed from him afterwards - (including me).
    And this is one of his best. Dark and beautiful.
    I approve!

    Sorry for getting out of the original subject, @Alicia Willis! You know I can't resist the urge to annoy Radu... 😅
    Anyways, I was reading a little and came across a recent article where Danny Elfman says he wasn't that happy about how they used his music in the movie:
    https://www.indiewire.com/2021/05/danny-elfman-batman-score-disappointed-tim-burton-1234634653/
    Very interesting...
    This article was super interesting and I can see what he means, however I’ll play devils advocate and say as a viewer in certain instances it worked well. For example I mentioned “ childhood remembered”…it does fade out and you can’t hear the orchestral work and goes almost totally silent for a bit, but in the aspect of that scene I think it works incredibly well. But, I can see how he would he irritated the entirety of that score wasn’t 100% heard.

    Yeah, from the musician perspective one would agree with him; but, from the audience perspective, it's very good the way it is in the movie. It's part of movies dynamics; they can't just throw the song there, they have to adjust to the scene.
