Now that Christopher Nolan has officially nixed complaints about “Interstellar”‘s sound mixing — that the loud effects and overbearing score muddle much of the dialogue to an incomprehensible degree — why not enjoy enjoy Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack on its own terms?
Hans Zimmer has been nominated for nine Academy Awards, last in 2011 for his infamous (some say snubbed) supply of braaaams for Christopher Nolan’s “Inception.” But Zimmer has not won since 1995, for “The Lion King.” What gives?
Zimmer is on track as a likely contender this year for “Interstellar.” Several experts at GoldDerby have tapped Zimmer to win the prize. The “12 Years a Slave” composer was snubbed for the nomination last year. (Did the “12 Years” score too closely resemble his 1999 Oscar-nominated work for Malick’s “The Thin Red Line”?)
