The Top Ten

1 Time (Inception)

The melody captures a 1000 emotions in a heartbeat!

Truly incredible, makes me feel like I'm more than I really am

You're in a Dream.


2 No Time for Caution (Interstellar)

Probably most emotional piece ever written by Hans, and one of the best there ever was. The Organ is as captivating as the scene in the movie. Just listen to pure powerful emotions in deep space.

3 A Watchful Guardian (The Dark Knight)

Just listen to it.

4 Flight (Man of Steel)
5 Rise (The Dark Knight Rises)
6 Why So Serious? (The Dark Knight)
7 Beautiful Lie (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice)

It's a merging of Batman's theme, with Man Of Steel's score, in a dark and emotional way.

8 Dream Is Collapsing (Inception)
9 Now We Are Free (Gladiator)

Very beautiful track - MetalMania

10 Mountains (Interstellar)

It genuinely describes the epicness of the scene, when the music progressively gets louder and louder slowly, before realizing a big wave coming. Then come the emotions and the crew trying to get back to the space ranger.

You can literally think about anything when you listen to this and it will feel epic and monumentous. When applied to something that ACTUALLY IS vast or great it becomes the perfect track.
Ambient, powerful and slowly-building into an awesome track. The only problem I have with it is that it's way too short.

The Contenders

11 Day One (Interstellar)
12 King of Pride Rock - Hans Zimmer
13 Chevaliers de Sangreal (The Da Vinci Code)

Almost tricks you into thinking the movie is good.

14 Barbarian Horde (Gladiator)
15 Gotham's Reckoning ( The Dark Knight Rises)
16 Why Do We Fall? (The Dark Knight Rises)

One of the most epic songs of all time.

17 Discombobulate (Sherlock Holmes)

If You hear anywhere You know is Sherlock's Theme

18 One Day (Pirates of the Caribbean)
19 Like a Dog Chasing Cars (The Dark Knight)
20 I Don't Think Now Is The Best Time (Pirates of the Caribbean 3)

This song is so complex, featuring cues from each movie in the trilogy and making the battle in the maelstrom and the sinking of the Endeavour epic and exciting. This piece captures all of the emotions felt throughout the trilogy in a grand and masterful way.

21 Remember Who You Are (The Lion King)
22 Day One Dark (Interstellar)
23 This Land (The Lion King)
24 Mombasa (Inception)
