The A To Z Of Michael Bay | Zimmer, Hans
The A To Z Of Michael Bay | Zimmer, Hans

Zimmer, Hans

This is a bit of a cheat, since Hans Zimmer has only scored two of Bay's films, but Z is hard and, in fairness, regular Bay composer Steve Jablonsky is also something of a Zimmer acolyte and a member of his Media Venture group. Anyway, let's talk music: Zimmer's Rock theme is an action classic (the score was co-written by Nick Glennie-Smith), and his Pearl Harbor score is one of the better points about that film. According to Jablonsky, who assisted on Pearl Harbor, got a chance to prove himself on some Platinum Dunes efforts and then stepped up with The Island and Transformers, Bay tastes are just what you'd expect, "He likes things that sound cool and modern. He loves percussion, and he also loves emotion in the music." Bay loves percussion? Shut the front door.

L: JensonJet I don't know why people have a problem with Bay's films. You know what you're getting, so surely you just avoid them if they're not for you. They're generally excellent popcorn, action flicks. There are some I didn't care for, some I though were rubbish and some I thought were really good. Transformers isn't aimed at my age group, so I watched the first (missed the first twenty minutes, and still have never seen it) and found it watchable enough. I was too old to have grown up with the toys but I didn't find the movie half as offensive as many action films. I actually think Bay have a very good eye for framing shots, angles, etc, and I'm happy to watch a film that's fast-edited. I think he's more than capable of making a calmer, less action orientated movie, but he enjoys making the films he makes, they're successful and millions seem to enjoy his work, so long may it continue. re generally a dumb, throwaway form of entertainment.
