As far as the music, as I mentioned, that's a pet peeve of mine. I just didn't care for it at all. I'm extremely tired of the same old "Hans Zimmer" score (that includes all of his guys at Remote Control) and was excited to hear a blockbuster with someone other than one of his guys. But unfortunately (IMO), this wasn't even on the same level as one of his normal scores. I was completely underwhelmed by not only the composition but the music production. Blah. Actually, Yuck.
Again, that's just my thing. I know that 90% of the people that watch films (that does not include you) don't pay attention to the score at all.
I liked Iron Man. I thought Favs did a wonderful job with the character. It has a nice balance to the dark take of Batman.
I agree about Hans Zimmer, though I really like James Newton Howard.
