I love revisiting this score. It's just so much fun, and I love hearing this side of Steve's music. I remember watching interviews where he'd talk about programming John Williams' string patterns into midi instruments, and his love for Williams' work overall. This side of him is rarely shown in his projects. <br><br>But then you have scores like this that show off how much of a wizard he can be with music. Melodic action music, fun and creative use of synth, classic Jablonsky choir chants, and beautiful use of the orchestra. Perfect for a fantasy comedy with a modern twist. <br><br>I cannot stress enough how much I love tracks like "Isabel the Strong", "Labyrinths And Humps", and "Mean Knights and Horsies O' My!". "Playful Secrets" in particular shows just how much of an expert Steve is with an orchestra. It sounds straight out of a John Williams score like Harry Potter or Indiana Jones with a fun Danny Elfman choir on top. Not to mention the beautifully performed bassoon and French Horn combo at 0:39 and 0:44! <br><br>These are the kinds of projects I like to see from Jablonsky. Films and games that allow him to show off his skills and test his abilities to the point where he creates complex, unique, varied, thematically rich, and truly poignant music. <br><br>This is something that I can point to and say "that's 100% a Steve Jablonsky score". It has some influence from Zimmer, but is not copying him by any means. Maybe with the slight exception of "Thadeous".Can't really agree that much with Bloodshot. The reason I was able to be engaged in Jablonsky's past scores similar to this (e.g. TF5, TMNT 2) was his strong melodic voice. Even in the more sound design parts of those scores there was at least several themes that I enjoyed, easily identified, and analyzed some lovely development for them. <br><br>Bloodshot doesn't really have that, it's got themes so minimal (except for KT which I can't really enjoy because the melody sounds identical to "Optimus"), that whatever development is there, I feel nothing toward because it's easy and boring to develop a theme that's basically just a series of chords. <br><br>Keanu I can't entirely judge Jablonsky for as it was also Nathan Whitehead's score, but it just sounds like Bloodshot 0.5 to me. Guitar chords, sound design, string ostinatos, wandering piano theme, been there done that. <br><br>Good lord, do I hope Steve works on Orbital Era though. It would be so refreshing to hear a full-on orchestral Jablonsky score again.Not only better than Spenser, it's better than Skyscraper.<br><br>Ok, Bloodshot maybe isn't one of the best works by Jablonsky, but after such disappointing with Skyscraper, see Jab in a work with choir, guitars, cool themes (if don't catch the similarities between KT's theme with the Autobots theme ;D) and good action writing (hang in there, i'm not going say is something good as Steamboy or Your Highness, even some of the Transformers/The Island stuff), as for the sound design, i prefer people like Jab, Zimmer or Holkenborg MORE than something dreadful as Reznor/RossJust listen Bloodshot OST again and I like it better than for the first time. Yes there is a lot of sounddesign elements, but quiet and melodic moments are good at some parts. My favorite track is "Bloodshot". For me this work, despite all the problems, is far better than Spencer Confidential.<br><br>There is extremely need of new Sci-Fi (not like Bloodshot, lol) or Fantasy project for Steve to work on. I'm fairly certain that he could provide amazing music for this genres, but for some reason.<br>Also, I've listened a few tracks from his "Keanu" score (posted on his new website) and it's wonderful, hope there will be a full release sometime. This one reminds me of another genre where Steve is good - comedy and parody movies - "Your Highness", "Pain and Gain", "Sims 3" (yes, it's a game score but it has that comedy atmosphere I'm talking about) all are really great scores for its genre.<br><br>For me "Eternals" from Marvel could be a good movie for Steve to work. And honestly, I would like to see what he could brings to "Godzilla vs Kong" crossover more than Junkie XL.<br><br>At least I hope that Katsuhiro Otomo would like to work with Steve again on his new anime project "Orbital Era", truly a dream-project.Yes, the sound mixing in the movie is bad, you can't listen the music properly, is buried under a lot of sound effects.<br><br>It was one of those situations where 'the music is trying to overlook the thunderous sound effects',
I do kinda prefer the 2014 score over the KOTM score, but McCreary's work does deserve more love than just being called a 'retreat of the original theme'.<br>It also deserved to be heard more, but the movie's sound mixing was terrible.Wasn't expecting to see someone else here for the same reason. Really hoping those two soundtracks return, they're great for studying music.Are Steve Jablonsky and Rupert Greyson-Williams still apart of RCP or they went solo too?I wouldn't disagree that Godzilla KOTM is a good score since it works very well for the movie and by itself. I'm just saying that Junkie XL can bring something new and interesting to the franchise which hasn't been done before.Before someone jump, i will said in this kind of movies, change a composer is very common, don't say i don't want McCreary will be back, only i prefer other people try other things.<br><br>Like i said, i listen very OFTEN the three scores in this movies, and i love each style (as for the movies... well, prefer G14 and KSI over KOTM)
@Moggyman<br><br>If you think that all McCreary did was modernize the Godzilla theme, you clearly haven't listend to the score.<br>He indeed used and modernized the themes for Godzilla & Mothra.<br>Besides that he wrote new themes for Rodan, Ghidorah, Monarch, The Russel Family and a theme he called the Ancient theme.<br><br>Besides this, he used the orchestra, choir, soloist and specialty instruments in the best way they can be used.<br><br>His score was one of the best blockbuster and orchestral scores of the last couple of years, in my opinion.<br><br>Until I hear Holkenborg's score I can't really comment on if it will be good. But at the moment I am sad McCreary isn't coming back. But I am very curious what Holkenborg will doI disagree, the McCreary's score in that movie is really, really good... but I put this, as myself i listen very often the other two: G14 and Skull Island, also really, really good, can't put a score over another because one composer uses a theme (a very mytical one, if you are a movie monster fan), specially in that franchise.<br><br>Yes, Ifukube create a wonderful theme (and the original movie have a really tough score to listen isolated of the movie), but other composer make a wonderful themes (and polaraising), like Otani (which his score for GMK is FULL electronic, but really good) or Oshima (great theme, maybe the inspiration for Desplat's theme), even the most forgotten Reijiro Koroku create a terrific theme for the character in 1984Bear McCreary is a good composer but all he did for Godzilla KOTM was modernize the original Godzilla theme, which isnt super creative. Junkie, on the other hand, may give us a really creative score based on his eagerness to do the project.Yeah besides the massive disappointment that is the movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the even bigger disappointment is that Bear McCreary won't be back for more.you fool.... its impossible ! everybody knows that there is only one batman theme.... (joke)
In a recent interview, Junkie mentioned that he's bringing back themes for Superman and Wonder Woman, while everything else is new. I wonder if he's gonna make a new Batman theme.It's true, there is completely different team from composer to director in crossover :)But the film was particularly bad...<br><br>So I rather have a whole other team do something ELSE lol...Yeah... McCreary's score is one of the best from last year so I'd rather have him again.I open to ANY composer in this movies.<br><br>To answer the question, YES, i'm ready<br><br>Specially to a guy, who loves G14, KSi and KOTM

When I would have a Taxi Hollywood with enjurance for return;
I would want to live in Lady Gagas Villa, drink red whine with Roland Emmerich while being livetime apprendist and free composer, desighner under the friendly sponsoring of Hanz Zimmer in his studios; while hawing even the possibility to free make what I want in creativ collaborations.
All that in the hope that Francis Ford Coppola would not let kill me bekause I may have dishonourated my italian family.

Hallo,....

die PEGIDA ind Deutschland nutzt den Song 'Time' von H.Zimmer und betreibt damit wie ich finde Propaganda...

Das finde ich nicht nur sehr traurig, sondern denke dass das am ende illegal sein sollte. Ich geh einfach mal davon aus dass das nicht im Namen von H.Zimmer passiert ist.

Sehr würde ich mich freuen, wenn der Komponist sich hier distanziert und man vllt Pegida auch mal auffordert das zu ändern.

Soweit ich weiß ist das Urheberrechtsverletzung!

Würde mich sehr freuen wenn man so etwas bewegen kann!

So sad..
I created a great (Dutch) ChristmasWish with MovieMaker for my friends. Because I love the movie (and soundtrack) "the Holiday" so much I used it to go with my Wish. Wanted to send it to my FBfriends, but got deleted within a few minutes.
It had nothing to do with copying, it should be seen as a compliment. Stupid Copyright.. :(

Dear mr Hans Zimmer,

After buying a ticket for your show I just drove 10 hours to be at your concert in Wroclaw.
To my surprise you weren't there. This is a bit confusing since your name is printed clearly and large on the ticket so I would expect you you to be there.

Could you please explain?

If you go to "unofficial" concerts it's your problem, you should have checked that before... Many orhcestras organize concerts and play music from well-known composers, it doesn't mean the composer has to be there. Most of the time I guess the composer is not even aware of this concert.

Film music makes a vivid impression on me. Just about my favourite film is Gladiator and I find the music very emotional and uplifting... particularly 'earth' and the first battle/final amphitheatre fight scene at the end. Could I raise a possible plagarism issue here ? While on a clipper ship cruise, the ships sails were raised to music that I assumed was part of Gladiator - but which I subsequently found was Vangelis soundtrack to a film Conquest of Paradise 1492. Listening to both in paralle, it is apparent as a keen musician, that both sound very similar - only difference is that Vangelis theme starts in minor key and moves to major while Gladiator starts in the major key - but the main tune sounds so similar...... but Gladiator came first. Anyone else notice this ? If so should the Vangelis version be considered as plagarism ??


billy2015-11-12 14:31:05
I think Vangelis' theme came fisrt, in 1992, while Gladiator was in 2000. They look similar indeed, but only in the beginning. In my opinion it's not a plagiarism, as the two melodies evolve differently, I would call it just an "inspiration" for Glaiator's theme,something that happens quite often, especially in film composing. Notice, also, that Vangelis has inspired Zimmer a lot ;-)


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-12 15:48:16
I think that bastard Holst stole something from Gladiator too. And don't get me started on that hack Richard Wagner. Man, Gladiator sure is a popular source of inspiration!

;)


Edmund Meinerts2015-11-13 15:08:57

Wagnerian2015-11-14 15:35:55
Zimmers music is full of plagiarisms. Listen to Crimson Tide soundtrack and then to the Sigfried theme in Wagners ring... Come on! Really?


Wagnerian2015-11-14 15:43:26
OK "Plagiarism" is too strong a word - let's call it "inspiration". Zimmers music is great but it would be even greater to acknowledge the inspirations. Howard Shore admitted to the Rheingold Leitmotifs being a great inspiration for his amazing LOTR soundtrack...

Ich hab tausende Lieder, ohne die ich nicht leben könnte. Die Spitze führt schon seit über 20 Jahren Russ Ballard mit "on the rebound" an. Wobei ich das auch nicht als absolutes Lieblingslied titulieren könnte, da mir eben soooooo viele Andere auch gefallen. Wenn ich aber Hans Zimmer`s "Chevalier des Sangreal" höre, laufen mir jedes mal die Tränen. Einfach vor Freude und Ehrfurcht, dass Jemand so ein perfektes Lied komponiert hat. Gänsehaut von den Haarspitzen bis zum kleinen Zeh. Selbst wenn ich es 10mal hintereinander anhöre. Wer so einen Effekt bei einem anderen Menschen mit nur einem Lied erzeugen kann, ist für mich der Grösste. Danke Hans, wenn ich an einen guten Gott glauben würde, dann wüsste ich, dass Du es bist.

Geschätzter Herr Hans Zimmer!

Sie und ich teilen uns nicht nur das gleiche Geburtsjahr und -land, sondern auch die Liebe zur Musik, im Besonderen den Soundtrack.

Da ich im nördlichsten Mittelgebirge Deutschlands, dem Harz, einige Ferienwohnungen betreibe, stelle ich auch eine Reihe von informativen Dokumentarfilmen her. Die letzte Produktion ist ein Portraits der UNESCO-Welterbestadt Quedlinburg mit dem Titel "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands".
Quedlinburgs Bürgermeister Eberhard Brecht begründete die Entscheidung für den Slogan "Wiege Deutschlands" mit der Rolle der Stadt zur Ottonenzeit im 10. und 11. Jahrhundert, als viele Reichstage hier stattfanden und damit der Ort der Mittelpunkt des Deutschen Reiches war. Für diese, wie ich denke, beeindruckende Doku dieser beeindruckenden Stadt habe ich keine bessere und passendere Begleitmusik gefunden als die genialen Melodien aus Madagascar 2 und 3. Es würde wirklich ein Unterschied zwischen Tag und Nacht ergeben, wenn ich freundlicher Weise diese legal erworbenen Kunstwerke in meinem Dokumentarfilm "Quedlinburg - Wiege Deutschlands" verwenden dürfte, um auf unserer Website www.feriendomizil-badharzburg.de interessierten Urlaubern zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Mit der herzlichen Bitte um Verwendung o.g. Melodien unter ausdrücklicher Namensnennung des genialen Composers verbleibe ich mit

Harzlichen Grüßen
Horst Eidel

Mr. Zimmer,

I am writing this to you because a friend of ours who lives with my wife and I is a huge fan of yours. Because of you he is trying to get into the Carnegie School of Music in Pittsburgh, Pa. If there is any way you can send him not only some advice but words of encouragement. It would be much appreciated. He has a couple of disabilities he works with to include Turrets and aspergers syndrome. But he is determined to not only graduate school but to be able to create works as well as you do. He has written some works and he has had very little formal training but your words would help to inspire him.

Thank You
