    Who cares, Inception wasn't that good anyway.

    1) I disagree with you strongly.
    2) If you don't care, why did you post anything...?

    Steve Jablonsky composed the DOTM score (along with previous two and more Bay movies)

    Hans Zimmerman, Steve's mentor, composed the score for Inception.

    Apparently this is true. I think that's pretty cool, Hans Zimmer is my all time favorite composer.

    I'm sure Jablonsky got permission from his mentor to use some of that musical magic.

    Is that why the score for TF1 and The Dark Knight is so similar.

    I popped in RotF's Blu Ray on Tuesday ahead of watching DotM and noticed toward the end of the credits there was a "special thanks" to Hans Zimmer...I'd heard Hans was his mentor before, so I figure it's not that surprising if Hans would let one of his own people sample/collaborate on one of his songs.

    Why the surprise? Hans Zimmer's Remote Control Productions is pretty much manufactured music that repeatedly reuses all his previous film scores to form the basis for each of his new ones. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan myself, but if you listen to any of his music, you'll hear elements of The Rock or Gladiator or any of his other films in there.

    Steve Jablonski is one of his proteges, and often works directly with Zimmer on his own scores. There's bound to be a lot of overlap, particularly with the music their company creates.

    Again, I'm a fan of their stuff and I own most of their soundtracks. I grabbed DOTM's score as soon as it hit iTunes. But Zimmer's company is a little notorious for the above reason, as well as favoring bombastic muscle over intelligence.

    Yeah Hans is a monster and his sound is distinct. No surprise, nor shame, that Steve is following in his footsteps

    Quick Question-

    Are the people who disliked inception the same ones who like the Transformers movies? That deserves some reflection...

    Bay & Spielberg have also both worked directly with Zimmer as well, so add in Jablonsky being one of Zimmer's proteges, and it all adds up.

    * Shia just explained in a recent interview that one of his head butting sessions with Bay was because Bay was blasting The Dark Knight score to set the mood for a scene when Shia wanted to listen to a Feist song instead - so obviously Bay is still a big Zimmer fan even though they haven't worked together for a few years :)

    First of all, Fixed.

    Second of all, he did do the score for Inception, but he didn't do that song and it was only used in the trailer.

    When I listened to It's our Fight Now it reminded me more of some stuff I've heard from Two Steps from Hell. A lot of sounds and beats used in the orchestra community get reused and recomposed depending who uses it.

    I'm a huge fan of Jablonsky and Zimmer, so the more they work off each other the better for me and the more epic the music they release.

    like everyone has said before me, their respective composers often colaborate so I'm not that surprised.

    Zimmer didn't write the trailer music that you are accusing Jablonsky from ripping off so thoe saying it's boundto happen as Jablonsky trained under Zimmer....Zimmer didn't even write that

    They both sound like Dark Knight.
