(James Newton Howard)<br>TIME TO COME HOMEMaybe the reuse of MW 2 is not Lorne's choice after all. Maybe the movie was temptracked with it, before scored, and the director got attached to it. So Lorne had either to "imitate" it or just use the same cues, since they were his. <br><br>This is just a speculation I made, since this happens quite often. I remember the Elfman - Raimi conflict about the train sequence in Spiderman 2, where Raimi asked Elfman to "copy" a cue from Hellraiser.Guys are you serious ? Iím currently reading comments about how Modern Warfare 2 is in the score. In Bad Boys for Life you can heard firstly  : The Rock, Speed, Bad Boys, ... MW2 is just a reharsch of these score instead with some Black Hawk Down soundscape. Have you heard any MV score post 2005? &#128517;As much as I think that the choice of movie Powell makes, which up till now have created amazing scores, I do wish we'd get more than 1 score of his every year. Even if the quality is like Solo or The Hidden WorldI actually don't know which I prefer. I guess nostalgia might be clouding my judgement, since the album version was the one used on the DVD menu. Both are still pretty good, nonetheless.
Yeah no contest IMO, it's much more dynamic and more "Powell-y" compared to that Superman-style rhythm he uses in the album version and elsewhere in the score. Must have been a hasty last-minute redo or something to not show up on the album.The films Powell is currently choosing allow him to write much more interesting music than your average Marvel movie... ;)<br><br>Excited for Call of the Wild in a few weeks.Does anyone know what the correct chronological tracklist for this would be?Honestly, i think i will be that few people who likes Lights Out. But his best horror score is A Cure for WellnessThatís a cool choice, Iím hoping for something more like ďItĒ and less like ďLightís OutĒ.
Wallfisch has compose the score for The Invisible Man, another horror score for the best guy today for the jobPowell has his personal reasons, but I sincerely hope he comes around to do another superhero score again, especially for MARVEL since his style isnít fit for the likes of DC as of now.I like the film version of Bathroom Titles better.LOL!<br><br>He has had some experience with animated projects, Iím interested to hear him do more diverse projects like that.I will never understand when people can't stand people opinions and 'attack' them.<br><br>If some loves Trent Reznor (i hate the guy's music), is his opinion and i no one to say nothing about it.
Bring on the remixes!LOL!!! You have no idea about film music<br>====================<br><br><br>It's his opinion, my friend.<br><br>And his opinion is equally as valid as the opinion of someone who thinks this score is the worst crap ever. Why? Because when it comes to appreciating art (movies, books, music...) it is all completely subjective. <br><br>I always use this example: I have two friends - educated, family men - who have seen The Godfather. One of them thinks it's one of the greatest movies ever, while the other one barely finished watching it. <br><br>At the end of the day, just because a group of people (film critics, film buffs, etc) proclaim that something is "good" or "bad" doesn't mean that it's automatically a holy statement that everyone should agree with. <br><br>We are all different :)<br><br>Cheers!Judging by the clips of this movie, it will be a good choice.<br><br>I can't wait for this one, after seeing those clipsAccording to Film Music Reporter, Tom is also scoring Scoob!MMichaels LOL!!! You have no idea about film music

Poor journalism, if you ask me...

Did you cross check any of this ? ;)


Knight2019-01-30 13:34:28
Yep, cross-checked all of them with the complete score


Knight2019-01-30 13:43:38
Thankfully Rabin almost never significantly changes his cue names, so all of these except for Words are identical to the cues on the complete

Thanks for all the updates, Knight. Appreciate your work.

Keep it up!


Hybrid Soldier2019-01-30 22:48:27
You cross checked nothing, you took a look at what I wrote... lol


Knight2019-01-30 23:09:26
I assumed that's what you meant by cross-checked as Linford doesn't have a website, Harper doesn't list his additionals, and there's nothing on either ASCAP or BMI about it.

THIS, ladies and gents, is the greatest MediaVentures-RemoteControl score. No way you can convince me otherwise. lol! No seriously, even The Rock and Crimson Tide are inferior. The Armageddon score has it all, breathtaking and epic action cues, powerful dramatic cues, adventurous pieces, comedic cues. It literally covers the entire emotional spectrum. What other score can do that? Think about it and you'll see that I'm right.

Cheers,

B.


JR2017-09-20 14:12:15
mmmh not for me, even The Peacemaker or Deep Blue Sea (both ****) are superior than this one! (Iíll give it a *** 1/2).


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-20 16:25:42
Armageddon is great fun, but I can think of plenty other scores that cover that spectrum of emotions. At World's End certainly does, and then some.


rockhound2017-09-20 17:47:58
i think Armageddon is better in covering of all emotions than Pirates III, because there is one more thing the music has to do in Armageddon....covering bad acting. without the music, all emotional scenes with bruce willis would have been a joke. he acts really bad in these scenes, but the music works wonders.


Armageddon2017-09-21 09:05:39
To rockhound,

With all due respect, sir, that's a stupid statement. Very stupid. Guess you're mad that Rockhound wasn't the main character. How is Willis acting in those scenes bad? He's not overacting, he's not crying-screaming like a little girl. His character is actually very grounded. In the scene with Liv Tyler at the end, he is actually watching a picture of his real daughter. It makes it all the more real. He's very quiet and the performance is realistic. Nothing over-the-top. And people absolutely love that scene. Go to YouTube and read all the comments under the video. So, having said all of that, what exactly is your problem with it? You want him to go all crazy emotional like Nic Cage in Face/Off? Is that it?


Armageddon2017-09-21 09:28:44
To Edmund Meinerts,

I admit I never really got the chance to listen to the entire At World's End score. But now you sir got me interested and I will check it out.

Cheers.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-21 11:31:24
So rockhound...your argument is that the score is better because the movie is worse? That's a new one, gotta admit... :D

to Armageddon, do it! The complete score, if you can. It's incredible!


Meta2017-09-21 14:15:16
Total video game score, circa 98. This is one of those scores -
my first - that you just didn't get enough of no matter HOW many cds they released of it. Hell, it wasn't until 2000 when I finally got the complete score on 2 cds. Sadly, by that time I burned out on it...


rockhound2017-09-21 18:49:34
@Armageddon

1. i love the movie. 2. rockhound is the most annoying character in the whole movie, but at least he has a cool name. ;) 3. bruce willis is smiling in almost all his emotional scenes and not just in this movie. but you know, in germany the movies are dubbed, so his "german" voice and the music helped alot to make these scenes nontheless convincing. to be honest, the goodbye scene was even more sad than the dying scene of leonardo dicaprio in Titanic. so you see, what impact the music had.

@Edmund

i didnt say the movie is bad, just bruce willis in a couple of scenes. so....the music had alot more to do than in Pirates III. the impact of the music in Armageddon must be way stronger to make these scenes work than in Pirates III. in Pirates III these scenes would have been also convincing without the music, because the acting was strong enough. but nontheless the music in Pirates III adds alot to the scenes and makes them stronger. just my opinion.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-22 12:39:50
Yeah, but the quality of the acting beneath the score doesn't affect the quality of the music.


rockhound2017-09-22 17:31:37
maybe quality is also not the correct word. its the function of the music. i just think the music of Armageddon is much stronger in its function as a filmscore than Pirates III. i also think the themes are stronger and rabins main theme is used in a wide range. but this also a matter of taste ofc.


Armageddon2017-09-25 09:47:50
To rockhound,

Well sir, apparently you just don't like Bruce Willis. That "smiling" you speak of is part of his charm as an actor. That's just how his face is. I don't have a problem with it, and honestly I've never heard people complaining about it. Until now. But fair enough, you have the right of an opinion. I'm just sharing mine.

Cheers.


rockhound2017-09-25 16:59:47
@Armageddon
i have nothing against bruce willis. he got an Golden Raspberry Award for that role, so im not the only one who think, he did not his best job in that movie. but hey, in the german version it worked for me and the movie is a great ride nontheless. :)


Armageddon2017-09-26 13:45:10
To rockhound,

I knew you would bring up the Razzies. I'm sure you know these awards are meant as a joke. Even the guy who created them said so. I mean Jesus, even Stanley Kubrick was "nominated" for a Razzie. And for his masterpiece The Shining!! So the last thing any person can do is to take these awards seriously. But even if we do take them seriosuly, Willis in Armageddon was nominated for Best Actor for a Blockbuster Entertainment Award. So the awards cancel each other out. And we're again left with our own opinions. Whether he did his best job in Armageddon, you are going to get different answers depending on who you ask. Still, fact of the matter is that this is one of his biggest, most popular movies. Everyone knows Armageddon. And not only the movie. The score and the soundtrack are absolute blockbusters as well. Hugely successful and popular. And that's what matters at the end of the day.

Cheers.


Meta2017-09-26 15:38:34
LOL @ Razzies
Back in 98 you had a choice between TWO comet apocalypse movies: Armageddon or Deep Impact. Armageddon was the popular vote, after the popularity of the Rock...Let's just say I never watched Deep Impact - and their "selling" point to try to one up Armageddon, from what I recall, was Morgan Freeman as the first black President ever seen in a movie....Yawn.

Whatever.

Anyway, great score. The movie wound up boosting Bruce Willis' career even more, and it helped pave the way not only for Trevor Rabin and Harry Gregson Williams careers, but also Zimmer and Bruckheimer...And of course, Ben Affleck, and other cast members, who would go on to shine in other movies.

This film and its score is SO powerful (for me anyway), all I'm gonna say is I'll never watch it again, because I simply CANT...That goes double for the score, which is rousingly awesome.

Then again, this movie serving as both the alpha and omega of a relationship I had at the time probably has something to do with it. This is what happens when you take film scores and use them as your own personal emotional, historical "diary"; you tend to appreciate them as the years go by, but never return to them because of all the energy you put into them.

does anyone know on which tracks did Hans work on?


Prott2012-08-30 20:46:59
I believe it's "Asteroid Chase - Shuttle Crash" (but none of his music is present in this score).


sone2012-08-31 00:32:51
unfortunately not. But now I took this Asteroid Chase track and compared it to the tracks on this list and my conclusion is that none of them contains music from it (except the main theme muisc which wasn't composed by Hans anyway). SO nothing here :)
