OH! You did what you did because you can. Here's an idea, in case you haven't thought of it: you can take off your clothes and run around naked in a train station. It will be timely as f**k.<br><br>BTW, you took nearly a month this time. Hibernate much?ultra frikin epic best OST song ever :´)yeah realffingmusic i did because if you havent noticed i can do what i want. and my message is timely as it'll ever be cuz this movie still sucks balls 3 years laterSo hearing JunkieXL's scores recently, this has really made me wonder...did Zimmer *really* work on the Arcade and Zod theme suites, or are they really all Junkie and Zimmer's name is a nice formality? Because they don't sound especially Zimmerish *anyway,* yet they sound identical to JunkieXL's recent output. ;)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! :DListen 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.

Mr. Zimmer,

You music has so much emotion to it. I never knew you were the man behind every amazing movie score. One of my friends had shown me some of your work and i was beyond inspired by your music. I also produce music and after listening to some of your music i had an idea. I made a wonderful edit of your song Time from the movie Inception. I gave an already perfect track, a more electronic feel.

Feel free to have a listen.

Cheers!

Mr. Zimmer,

Thank you. I am in love with the soundtrack to The Holiday. My favorite piece is Cry, a true love song that evolves taking us from sadness to pure joy with an urgency that fast is not fast enough to return to that one special person.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Zimmer, I am a 23 year old college student near Boston and I want to thank you for your tremendous contributions to music in my life. I am a huge Bat-fan/Nolan follower and I must have listened to your scores a trillion times - the cave got me ready to go out into the world during my teen years. Incepton and its score...I cannot express to others how it makes me feel. The mathmathical breakdowns and relations between motifs...brilliant. My favorite piece of all is during Cobb and Ariadne's conversation about Mal's Totem through to his confession...a bittersweet, etheral 5-note tune moves me in a way no other music i have come across does. Thank you, I hope one day to meet you and discuss music and life...that would be one of the coolest things ever. Can't wait for TDKR! My email is homemovies539@yahoo.com - If by some chance you want to shoot me an email I would love to coorespond with you, even once!

Dear Hans,
I have listened to your scores in movies for a long time. In my personal opinion, you are one of the best. My all-time favorite one would definitely be "The Holiday" Movie. The music compliments the actors and storyline perfectly!! I love Arthur's theme! It gets me in a good mood, and makes me feel like I can do anything... Iris's theme also is just as deep, but in a more emotional way. You feel how much Miles cares for her.
I know that when I watch this movie, I instantly feel better, and I recommend it to everyone I know.
I can't wait for more!!!

Hello,
I was wondering if we can use hans zimmer music in a small movie maker competition. We just need a permission if we want to compete.. Here is the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkL8YlrM8Eo&feature=channel_v ideo_title .. In other case, we dont have any other option for the music in background, we are not music composers :(

Hello,

I have heard an amazing music score today, the title was "Hymn to the Fukushima 50" on an Internet radio. I couldn't find the composer's name listed, but it sounded really Zimmer-ish, big, deep, emotional, melodic... does anyone have any information whether Hans or a colleague of his created this score?

Thanks much!

Anne

My love for Hans Zimmer's music began when I was ten and Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl came out. I am eighteen now and ever since that movie I have developed an extreme love for movies and soundtrack scores and when I go to see new movies, as well as immersing myself in the plot of the film, I pay close attention to the music that accompanies it.

After seeing Inception last year I decided that yes, it is now one of my favourite Zimmer scores. Especially 'Time'. I just finished watching the live performance on Youtube and I'm not going to lie, I was sitting in my chair weeping like a little child. I cannot express my love for Hans Zimmer and it's times like these, crying in my chair, that I wish I wasn't in Australia. We do not get live concerts from composers like Zimmer.

Oh man if I saw a live concert, I honestly don't think that any experience I would or could have in the future could EVER top that. It truthfully is my one and only wish.

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT WORK.

Hi Hans

(I hope you sometimes find the time to read these comments).

While on a recent business trip to Mongolia, I took with me a selection of your music. This was a terrific combination of the wild, exotic and freezing (-35°) panoramic views, and your highly entertaining, emotive and classical (to me) music.

I particularly enjoyed The Dark Knight soundtrack as the soundtrack to my Mongolian visit.

I'm listening to it now (while in my office in Switzerland), and I feel like I am transported; not only back to Mongolia, but also to a very special and passionate place.

Long may you continue to entertain!
Thank you very much Hans!
Paul Davies.

I'm not sure if you actually ever read this, but I would like to applaud your work in pretty much every movie you've been in lately. The quality of the music is amazing, and I don't think people give the musicians behind everything enough credit. Anyway... You probably don't want to hear this from a 16 year old girl, but I think it's pretty amazing what you add to these movies, and I would die (not literally, of course) to be in a band or orchestra like yours.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
I am a 17 year old girl who lives in Reno, NV. I know how unlikely that it is that this will receive any individual attention, but I could not stop myself from telling you how much your music has changed my life. Its powerful and raw, full of so much emotion. When I was a kid I used to watch movies over and over just to listen to the music. Now I actually have the majority of your soundtracks on my ipod. When I found this site I was ecstatic and thrilled like the band kid I am that there was a place where it all was. It is put together simply and easy to figure out. Basically, I just wanted to say thank you for bringing the wonders of your music into the light for all to hear.

This has been quite strangely generous of people like you to present easily what many individuals would have offered for sale as an electronic book to help with making some bucks for themselves, notably now that you could have done it if you considered necessary. These smart ideas additionally served like a fantastic way to comprehend other people online have a similar dreams just like my personal own to find out somewhat more with reference to this condition. I'm certain there are several more enjoyable instances in the future for folks who scan your forum post.

Wow had no idea he had done some of the music that you listed. Thanks for that info. The first time I noticed him was on the soundtrack for Crimson Tide. Every since then when I really like the music in a movie I look to see if it was him and I'm not surprised when I love the music and his name rolls up the screen.. Truly talented thanks for bringing this website about a gifted, gifted composer...
