I think Zimmer's theme to Something's Gotta Give is underrated. It's fun, catchy and memorable.

Martin Tillman played cello on it. I've also heard When A Stranger Calls. It's a Zimmer score through and through, the vibe you speak of also being present in Hannibal and The Da Vinci Code. When I say he wrote it solo, I mean he's the driving force behind it, as no Zimmer score is ever truly a one man project. There are no co-composers for the first film.

I'm sorry but I am 100 % certain that Jim Dooley composed additional music for it and was credited so on the first promo that leaked out way back when. He even had tracks credited to him... Also, "as no Zimmer score is ever truly a one man project", how can he have written it solo?

I played Regarding Henry a lot of times! I think this title is very underrated.

Additional music and co-composer are two entirely different titles. I already explained what I meant by 'solo' above.

I don't often hear King Arthur mentioned with Zimmer's action scores and it's pretty excellent.

Wow! No love for either Driving Miss Daisy OR Backdraft?

A few years ago, I spent a whole summer driving around town playing King Arthur in my car. I bragged about it to my brother several times. And then one day he called me and said he was listening to something on Cinemagic radio, but didn't know what it was. He held the phone up to the radio and said he loved it and was hoping I could identify it. I told him, "THAT's what I have been talking about all summer - King Arthur!"

I still think that this thread is some kind of inside joke, but PACIFIC HEIGHTS is certainly not entirely a bad score for which Zimmer (much less the person who composed it for him) doesn't get enough credit.

And, yes, DRIVING MISS DAISY, the one Zimmer score I actually bought when it was released.

There's an under-rated Zimmer score?

Just kidding!
