The score is already on itunes.This score... so many mixed emotions. Does it work for the film? Heck yeah. Does it improve the film? So much so. Did Hans do what he set out to do? Totally. Is it an award winning masterpiece? Um, not so fast.<br><br>Dunkirk, while super effective within the context of the film (I wouldn’t change a thing about it), I must admit, it doesn’t have nearly the same effect as a stand-alone listen. It’s literally the same textures and notes over and over again, just slightly rising and falling in pitch and tempo. Does that make it “award” worthy? I’m not sure. If based solely on the film, you betcha. If based purely on the music itself, I don’t think so. That’s where Interstellar succeeds so far and away over Dunkirk. As a pure listening experience, Interstellar is interesting, multi-layered and emotional. Whereas Dunkirk is just flat, void of any sort of feeling or “actual” music (again, works IN the film). It’s glorified sound FX (save for the end, which, no doubt, is in large part to Ben).<br><br>Hmm... I’ve never had a score tear me apart more than this one. I both love it and hate it. Maybe it did it’s job... lol.<br><br>Excuse me while I go listen to No Time for Caution yet again.I think most of us agree that he should've won for Interstellar but I think Dunkirk deserves it too. The work Hans and the music department did on this movie is just incredible. Must've been a lot of hard work. <br>An award is an award, Hans' 2nd Oscar is long overdue so I'd be glad to see him win. But it would be weird to see him win for THAT score, after all the greatnesses of the past 20 years. Same thing with Morricone who won his only Oscar for his very light and insignificant work on Hateful Eight. Good for the man, good for the fans, but doesn't really make sense. But have Oscars ever made sense? :-phaha hybrid :D made my day
Hybrid, yes!wow man, hybrid. this isn't right from you. actually really embarrasing and an absolute no-go from a staff/member of this site to write such a comment. even if it's a joke, this is a shame and sad.I was a bit over the line, I admit. I should have made it clearer that all of that "hottest shit in town" bit was meant purely as a part of my personal opinion regarding his output. I never saw or read any interviews with him. <br><br>I also know about his wife, of course... but I guess I'm just too cynical to accept it as an all-encompasing excuse while seeing such massive fanbase clamoring for his new music. I don't know, I admittedly feel a bit bad about what I'm saying myself. I AM an asshole, sure, but only to an extent. <br><br>I think that saying "he is writing scores that he feels comfortable with" and "living his life however he wants", albeit understandable, is still ignoring the fact that he is an artist with a fanbase. We are living in a time when film composers are slowly getting a mainstream recognition as a type of musicians comparable to bands or singers. And that creates a certain responsibility towards that fanbase. An artist doesn't have to fulfill it, sure, but he should at the very least acknowledge and address it.<br><br>Which brings to mind an image of Hans going on a massive tour whilst giving zero fucks about the CD presentation of his scores, but I digress.<br><br>I wouldn't dare giving Powell advices about how to deal with a pain of the loved one's loss. But on the other hand, I strongly believe in artist's responsibility towards the fans. <br><br>For example, that's why I would kick everybody saying "GRRM is not your bitch" right in the goddamn nuts.Now I have ONE true reason to want this score to win !<br><br>PEACE ! lolI stand corrected. Though it's still possible that the score is a combination of live orchestra and samples, a lot of RCP music does that.
Ds beat me to a few of the points I was going to make, so thanks. :) I'll try to keep this brief, but it won't be.<br><br>Macejko, the only part of your statement that I would 100%, strongly, absolutely disagree with is the "pretentious douche" part. When has he ever "acted like the hottest shit in town"? Do we have any record of him actually refusing assignments? I mean, clearly his output has slowed down since 2012, but why do you act like he's doing that because he thinks he's better than everyone else? I don't see that as pretentious. Especially not given what we know about his personal circumstances. For all we know his decision to take on less work was caused by the knowledge that his wife was sick and wanting to spend as much time with her and with their son as he could. You really still want to call him pretentious?<br><br>Now, what I do agree with is the impression that Powell is no longer really developing as an artist. He's found his niche and is writing scores that he feels comfortable with, but I haven't been "surprised" by anything he's written since probably 2010 or 2011. Is that a problem? Well, depends on what your priorities are. I don't rate innovation as highly as I do music that speaks to me on an emotional level, that I love listening to and want to hear over and over again. And with scores like Pan and HTTYD2 Powell has definitely provided that, while Hans Zimmer for all of the "pushing the envelope" and "breaking boundaries" he's done (or claimed to have done) in the last 7, 8 years has in the process left behind many of the things that made me love his music in the first place. He's written some fine and certainly interesting scores in those years (and some I never want to hear again), but I'd throw out every single one of them to hear another At World's End or King Arthur, just a big old epic larger-than-life fun time that cares more about entertaining you than trying to musically divide by zero or whatever. But now I'm turning this into a Powell vs. Zimmer argument which was never really my intention. :p<br><br>At the same time I can't pretend that it doesn't hurt to see how much Powell has slowed down. I mean his run of form from 2003-2011 is the stuff of legend, 3-4 scores a year in all sorts of different genres, all of it quality stuff. He was pretty much hitting the sweet spot: innovating, developing his style, trying out new things but not sacrificing his voice or the accessibility of his music. If he were to keep up that trajectory for a career spanning several decades he'd be in contention for greatest of all time IMO. Sadly it doesn't look like that's going to happen anymore. I think it's a fair criticism to say he's dropped off, or at the very least leveled out. I just don't think it's fair to call him pretentious for doing so. The man's a human being and he has the right to live his life however he wants.But you know he never said he has nothing to prove. I don't think he even think such a thing, actually he seems like a very humble and nice guy, much like Hans. I just tell you this based on all the great things he did in many genres throughout his career.<br><br>I guess he just want to write music he likes and the way he likes it. Many producers/directors want something more restrained for their movies, that's ok, they can get someone else. If you can afford doing what you like for a living, why the hell would you accept jobs you don't like?<br><br>And SW isn't about "creativity", it's just about this kind of busy orchestral music with lots of frenetic parts which Powell seems to really like these days.If only every annoying film music fan would be so willing to take his own life as this one...If this nominated for golden globe or even Oscar and win the title I'll kill my self.<br><br>This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3.The moment an artist thinks he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead. <br><br>Also, thinking that only animation and Star Wars provide a field for any kind of innovation and experimentation is just ludicrous beyond words, Ds. SW especially is the most musically restricted franchise on the planet.
Fair point. Just look at what Balfe did this year, Lego Batman, Churchill, Genius, The Crown, Geostorm... and all are somewhat different in tone. He was on fire this year for sure.Here is another comparison which to me seems more relevant than yours :<br>Lorne is doing a lot of projects and getting better and better in various styles.<br>And Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity. I'm not saying he doesn't evolve, but at this rate he will need 3 lifes to catch up on Balfe's current level.<br><br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres and is now able to write the music he likes most : crazy orchestral pieces where nothing is forbidden. Today, only animated movies allow this style of scores to exist. And also Star Wars :-pEdmund wrong again !!!!!balfe posted some photos of the recording sessions for the crown^ lol. Harsh, but he’s not wrong. Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion.I must admit I'm starting to think of Powell as sort of a pretentious douche. All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him, and when he finally descends from his golden throne and graces us peasants with a new score for his beloved kiddie animated genre, even then he doesn't handle the majority of the score himself.<br>This might be a fun score, I'm sure it's gonna be, but I'm also pretty sure that it's going to sound like every other Powell score from the last 6 or so years. The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ. Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better.

Hallo Herr Zimmer :)
Ich schreibe Ihnen hier in der Hoffnung, dass sie das lesen. Ich habe seit zwei Jahren einen Freund, der eine große Leidenschaft für Filmmusik hat, seitdem er hm ca 13-14 Jahre alt ist. Es wäre schön, wenn es machbar wäre mir eine Autogrammkarte von Ihnen zu schicken. Er fiebert wirklich bei jeder Oscar-verleihung mit und Sie inspirieren Ihn sehr! Es wär schön, wenn Sie oder Ihr Team mir eine Email schicken könnten, damit ich Ihnen die Adresse schicken kann.
Ganz liebe Grüße

Dear Hans Zimmer,

For so many years I have wondered if there would ever be a way to express the profound depth of gratitude I continually feel every time I listen to the brief 75 second theme you shared in the film "Driving Miss Daisy" which was used in several scenes: the retrospective in the empty home after Daisy was moved to an assisted living arrangement, the cemetary scene where Freeman is looking for the right headstone, and the last scene where he's helping her eat her pie. I used to study music and film in college, and it's been a life-long joy going back over half a century, but never have I EVER heard a theme that so tenderly and deeply expresses the over-arching spirit of a film as your brief composition in "Daisy." Quite honestly, it literally brings me to tears every time I hear it. I particularly love the sublime transition from a single sustained note at the beginning to the delicate, child-like wonder of what sounds like a harpsichord which then grows stronger into a fuller body of gentle affirmation. There's no way to express how deeply moved I am by this precious musical treasure. Thank you SO much.

Dear Mr. Zinner,

I have made a short video and would like to use your theme song for the movie "Broken Arrow." I have used another non-copyrighted song that is similar in the video, but as I am sure you will agree it does not compare!

My short video is entitled "EYESPOT is the Bomb!" and can be found on YouTube.

Who do I need to contact to get permission to use a short part of your Broken Arrow Theme song?

Keep up the great work!

Hello everyone:

I always thought that the music of Hans Zimmer deleted the complexities of harmony from other classical music. For me, the most interesting thing about this composer is the way he use the instruments and orchestra. Every time I hear the soundtracks of Gladiator, Lion King, Inception, Angels and Demons ... I can understand every move, the reason of the music. It's more than music stage. Good work, Zimmer. Very good work.

Hello Hans Zimmer,

I'm a big fan of all of your music and I love the music you composed for Inception. "Old Souls" takes me to a different world every time I listen. As summer approaches, I look forward to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and I have been constantly checking to see if previews would be available for your score. Today, I listened to the previews available on Amazon. Even though the previews were between 30 and 40 seconds, I'm a little concerned for the score. It's great that you are doing collaborations with other artists and creating music that you think fits the film best, but I don't understand why there is such little amount of your great original score. I'm assuming that the several remixes (included on the soundtrack) are not going to be played during the actual film because it would definitely transform the meaning and the world of the film in a significantly different way. Like you (or whoever was in charge of it) released two bonus tracks for Inception, I hope you do the same for Pirates 4. I'm also assuming that movie is at least 2 hours or even more (since the past movies have run for a great length). I'm not saying that your music is off key, I just want to hear more of it, especially if there is other music in the film. Whoever agrees with my perspective of this probably also feels that we are being cheated. Hopefully, some other tracks can be released.

Best,

Frank

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.

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!!!

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.
