'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....
Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...
Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.

Hans Zimmer, your "Inception" soundtrack is one of my favorite musical pieces of all time. So moving, so dramatic, so moving and so thrilling. Amazing piece of work. I listen to it again and again, it always inspires and lifts me up from reality to an upper realm. Thank you for your beautiful creations of pure art!

Hello Hans Zimmer Team,

Great soundtracks ever since !
Just an idea: what about composing for flutes,
especially flutes used in old music in a film, that
everyone expects to have a "modern" theme ?
Some great flute players of today are quite good doing improvisations. best whishes, Ricky

Is there any way to possibly release the chronological order to the Twister film score? Sadly, as it is in the CD is not the order that the tracks appear in the movie - and any help I can get with this would be monumentally appreciated!

Hello!

Could you please tell me if it's possible to use an excerpt (1 minute or 2) from the track "A Dark Knight", included in the soundtrack of the film "The Dark Knight", in a promotional clip, paying for the licensing rights, of course?

I hope this message doesn't offend you! I very much appreciate mr. Zimmer's work!

Hallo Hans, sein Team und sämtliche Musiker, die mit ihm im Studio oder live arbeiten,

vielen Dank an euch für die bislang überwiegend wundervolle Musik.

Mit dem Live-Konzert in Hamburg ist für mich einer meiner Lebensträume in Erfüllung gegangen. Dies ist für mich ein Grund, bei euch nachzuhaken, ob die Performance der Konzerttournee in absehbarer Zukunft auf CD erscheinen wird? Ich wäre euch allen noch dankbarer dafür!

Norddeutsche Grüße aus Hamburg!

You are probably already aware, but do you know LL Bean has used the Interstellar score for commercial purposes?

It's close, but it's actually not the actual score. It's very very close to the same melody and movement though.

I wish there was a Hans Zimmer Complete Edition available that contains all(!) of his genius music. (Pretty much the same as the Bach Complete Edition with 142 CDs and a duration of nearly one week :) )

Background:
Even though I already bought more than 35 HZ CDs, I still have only a fraction. Most of the older discs (pre 2000) are extremely rare.

Just for the case that someone from RCP reads that message and wants to fulfill this DREAM: Please do also include all unpublished music in the complete edition (especially everything from "The thin red line") - Many thanks :-)

(I already see the HZ Complete Edition box with 500 CDs on my CD shelf) ;-)

I just read the slashfilm.com post saying that you were done with super hero compositions, I'm not going to complain...

I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic 2013 Man of Steel sound track, I love the percussion, I love the subtle power, the unresolved movement forward of the music, I love the story telling the music does, it really made the movie for me!!!

Good luck with your future pursuits!

Hi, I'm a big fan of that song of you: God Yu Tekem Laef Blong Mi
in a thin red line.
I haven't learnt much on the internet so far expect it is Malaysian.
What I try to know now it's all the cultural things around ?
When do the people sing that kind of song ? Is it a death ceremony song ?

Thank you in advance!

To all the mods, to Hybrid, to the community here... since this is the feedback section, I'll go ahead and leave this here:

It may sound funny to say, but thanks for this great site. It's truly a resource for anyone interested in RCP and background on RCP / Zimmer scores, and it's been an awesome place for discussion and learning about all these scores for as long as I've been visiting (5 years or so now). There are lots of great film score / composer sites, but this one tops all of them for me (even though RCP isn't necessarily my favorite in the film score world). So to everybody who makes this site awesome... thank you. :)

My son (9 years) like your music very much too and he is playing flute. We are looking everywhere for music sheet for flute from the film The Man in the Iron Mask but no succesfull. I would like to kindly ask you if you can send me this music sheet Heart of the King. He would like to train it and surprise his flute teacher. :-)
Thank you a lot.

Hi,
I was at your final show in the city of Orange, in France.

I was there with my two little girls ( 4 and 5 years old ) and my girlfriend, and i just can tell to you and your team that this show was awesome.

The entire show frightened me, from the Thelma and Louise theme to The thin red line, Interstellar, Inception.

The whole work you and your team do is fantastic, and we (my little girls, girlfriend & me) were glad to be there.

All of these movies wouldn't have been so great without your songs.

Thanks a lot.

I made a small amateur film about the rescue of orca and used your song entitled "Rise" from the movie about Batman. You can give permission for its use in non-commercial purposes to display a larger audience of people?

Is Hans Zimmern aware of the fact that his score from Gladiator has moments of very distinct similarly to works by Gustav Holst? Portions of the score sound almost exactly like "Mars".

Hi Mr Zimmer, I am a big fan of your work. Recently a Colorbond Steel advertisement was posted on YouTube and the music played in it sounds all to similar to your 'Cornfield Chase' piece from Interstellar. I know i wouldn't want my music to be copied like that so i just thought I'd inform you.
