Best Movie Soundtracks -1990s
16. Batman Forever
The sequel to 1989’s Batman film saw a great many changes; out was Tim Burton and Michael Keaton; in was Joel Schumacher and Jim Carey. Out, also, was composer Danny Elfman who was replaced by the divisive Elliot Goldenthal. Inspired by the hero versus badie theme, Goldenthalt’s score lost much of Elfman’s tragic undertones, and, in line with the film, gave a knowing wink to the original camp fun of the original 1960s series. But Goldenthal lost none of the drama with his score inspired by children humming along to their action figure enactments. The album was nominated for a Golden Globe in 1995.
