"The Last Samurai" (2003) - Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer is a composer who's best known for his big, loud synth-flavored film scores. As good as wroks like "Crimson Tide" and "Gladiator" are, some of his best work has been on more intimate scores such as "The Thin Red Line", and "As Good as it Gets". Here, he combines his gentle, underappreciated stylings with his more popular action fare. The action music is certainly excellent, with pounding taiko drums and very memorable themes. At a first listen, this music will catch your attention and impress you from the start. But, as with the best scores, repeat listenings reap great benefits. After you are able to hear all the little things Hans is doing in the quiet music, you're really able to fully enjoy and appreciate this score. It's also pleasant to finally hear Zimmer write an entire score by himself. Despite the popularity of his "Gladiator" score, Zimmer takes that style of mixing the epic and intimate and improves on it here. One of Hans Zimmer's best scores.
