Episode 2 Batman (1989) vs The Dark Knight

Episode 2 of Soundtrack Showdown. We look at two movies about Batman vs his arch-nemesis the Joker - Danny Elfman’s score for Batman (1989) and Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard’s score for The Dark Knight (2008). In a spirit of light-hearted (but often quite heated) competition we break the scores down over five rounds, in which we discuss how well the music works in key areas, then declare an overall winner. This week, our rounds are:

1 – Batman Themes

2 – Joker Themes

3 – Style

4 – Action Music

5 – Legacy and Impact
