Batman Begins soundtrack good. Kingdom of Heaven not so.
According to my iTunes playcount, I have listened to the Batman Begins soundtrack 26 times now. And some individual tracks (Molossus) even more than that.

It’s surprising, because I remember leaving the movie thinking the music was only OK, and definitely not anthemic like Danny Elfman’s 1989 version was. But now, I can’t stop listening to the Hans Zimmer/James Newton Howard version.

Anyway, I suppose both versions are worth a listen to. I didn’t particularly like the Prince version.

I eventually watched Kingdom of Heaven, which I was only semi-impressed with. I’ll put it in the “Ridley Scott’s movies that I did not enjoy” category—which consists about half of his works. There are good and bad things about that movie—it was nice to look at, and I’m glad I did watch it. But I definitely would not watch it again.

It’s really annoying how the Batman Begins double-DVD sold in Australia doesn’t include those features that the US version does—e.g. the “Man Who Falls” comic. I really wanted to see that.
