I think Hans Zimmer does an ouststanding job when he's composing the music and the playback. His composing skills are quite unconventional, should we talk about Crimson Tide and Man Of Steel. They give you a stomach wrenching ache which glues you to your seat, anticipating the flow of the scene. A must have team member.
