The Terminator Salvation video game correctly included the T-1000 motif, even if it wasn't used in the right context.<br><br>If Balfe stays, I'm hoping he leans more towards synth in the next score. If not, then I hope whoever takes over does.The samples sound great! Looking forward to hearing this!This score should've sounded more like Chappie...Alas, you are correct...<br><br>Since T3 all the scores have gone symphonic...Sure, there's percussion and some nifty SFX to go with the music, but as a whole it just doesn't fit and turns the movie into an action adventure. Beltrami and Elfman made good themes, but they just missed the point.<br><br>Terminator should very well sound synthetic.  <br><br>I figured with Remote Control behind the wheel this time, we'd get that. But in my opinion Balfe just went with Beltrami and Elfman and decided to turn this into a Jablonsky Transformers sounding score with more of your usual symphonic material. <br><br>Sure, it's using synths, but to be honest I would have preferred the synths Junkie used in Mad MAx over what was used here. Or hell, drag out Han Zimmer's harsh droning synths from the early 2000s...toss in some more anvil and marching band for the percussion and there you go. <br><br>I simply don't understand why this is so difficult. Or maybe it's too simple and that's why they keep missing the mark. <br><br>The Terminator Salvation video game score sounds closer to what I was hoping it would sound like than what we got.<br><br>Oh well...Nice themes though.FINALLY! :D
Listen carefully to the score. Its not hard to see who did the work.<br><br>Zimmer writes his simple, strong themes like the shen one and then Balfe gives them the ornate orchestrations and Powell-esque arrangements. Simple. Like I said here months ago on the batman page. Zimmer doesn't write this style of complicated cue himself. That's not his style. He doesn't do frilly and swirls and trumpets, he does austere and basic. Enter Balfe to spice it up.<br><br>Maybe that's why people are mixing up and thinking Powell did more than he did. Zimmer tunes + Balfe arrangement and you get a decent impression. Which was pretty much Megamind as well, a mini-Powell score in parts. Balfe is a very good arranger let's give him credit.Really looking forward to this.@Hybrid<br><br>Oh? That's interesting. Was it like a "Pirates" situation where everything was rushed or a producer thing?Powell did "Po Finds the Truth," apparently. I do find it pretty funny that it seems like the two primary composers didn't have as big a role as some of the secondary ones...And yet, this score is still great!Any ideas which scenes Powell actually worked on, if any?
There aren't much interviews because the projects didn't go that well during its production. And Powell actually didn't do much.I agree, to me the score mostly sounds like Lorne Balfe. <br><br>But I dunno, as I've said before, I don't think it's a case that Zimmer or Powell write a sketch and then sit back and drink coffee while the others do the work. I imagine it's very collaborative. <br><br>Unfortunately there's very few interviews/info about this score compared to a lot of others, which is a pity, because it's one of the best RCP collaborations. It's a really tight, well put-together, consistent, enjoyable score, and it's a shame none of the composers involved want to talk about it!I agree. Zimmer isn't heard obviously in much of this score, as has been repeatedly hashed out, but neither is Powell, if you ask me! It does seem like the additional guys did most of the writing here, albeit copiously using old themes and cues and doing so, presumably, under Powell and Zimmer's direction. I honestly don't see Zimmer *really* doing much of KFP3, either, even though his name is the main credit so far.<br><br>Thoughts?it seems that Intrada will release AGENT CODY BANKS on 7/7 :) source are the hints in the Intrada or FSM forum.To me most of this score sounds like Balfe's, with a few Zimmer spices here and there. I get the feeling that Powell got the co-credit because of the significant amount of stuff that were carried over from the original.
I suppose something went wrong on their last collaboration. Adrian's quote about the soundtrack album further encourages this idea.<br><br>Good riddance though. This is not Hans' area of specialty for me anyway.To me it sounds like a Zimmer theme, but put through a Powell arrangement/orchestration most of the time.forgiveness from Spain. I expect a lot of this musicWhat's the problem?You just COULD NOT wait 5 minutes ? You had to post this ? lol

What happened with Harry scoring Southpaw?


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-03 11:32:56
Don't know, but James Horner was announced on it quite a while ago, so I think people were only assuming Harry would be on it because of his previous Fuqua collaboration The Equalizer. I don't think he was ever officially attached, was he?


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-03 11:35:23
No Edmund, Harry stated in an interview like 2 weeks before Horner's interview, that he was going to start it... Don't know what happened.


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-03 12:01:08
Hm, weird indeed. James Horner seems like the last guy you'd expect to see scoring an Antoine Fuqua movie, that's for sure!

Briefly, where did Hans get his Telecaster? What model and options are on it? I'm a guitar geek and a Fender collector.

Dear Mr. Zimmer

I am currently studying in my Final year at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, majoring in film composition. For my mini-dissertation I am analysing the developmental characteristics of your film scores. It would benefit my research immensely if I could email you a short questionnaire regarding my work.

Kind Regards

Wow, I can't think of anyone the best of the best other
than Mr. Hans Zimmer! Luckily I stood next to him, if
recalled correctly, at a film showing for the Italian
Film Festival a few years ago. To experience Mr. Zimmer
and his music in so many films keeps getting better.
Music is "a universa language" and it makes all alright,
alright. Bravo, and wishes for a long, healthy life to
you (Mr Hans Zimmer).

Webmasters

I have noticed that every now and then a certain album page gets flooded with discussions about another - usually forthcoming - score, for which we naturally don't have a page yet. I was thinking maybe we should have a thread for each score a RCP composer is attached to work on - whether or not any album(s) are planned or released for it - and then, later on, a separate page for the actual albums when those become available. This could make things organized and probably easier to follow. Just a suggestion.

Mr. Zimmer,

To me you are considered one of the best if not the best composers of the modern era. It would be an honor to see you someday live in concert. Do you ever come to Cleveland, OH?

Thanks for the music!

No matter how many times I hear the soundtrack of Gladiator I cannot think it is the best movie score of all time for me. I always awed specially Sorrow with Lisa Girard, Am I Not Merciful, and Now We are Free.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
I am currently working on a short drama movie for a contest exclusive to high school students. «Time» being one of my all-time favourites, I was wondering if my team and I could use it as the main soundtrack.

We will in no way gain money from this short, nor do we intend on sharing it beyond the contest's audience reach. Thank you for your time and your masterpieces.
