New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br>youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nVB9Q77N9h-iKbNe7ZWrQHjiy_ vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br>youtube.com/watch?v=YGCFdR--u5M<br><br>Strength and honor!<br><br>One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol
"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????
I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !
I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happy

To be honest, the score is overrated, I think (like the film). Its a good score with some unique ideas but its not a masterpiece. Both Batman Begins and its score are better than The Dark Knight and its score.

I'm glad I got this complete score, but certain tracks are too loud and some are too quiet. I have to edit the volume on iTunes. But other than that, I'm glad I got this finally. Those fan edits can now be thrown away.

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-10 00:00:00
I think you will find thats good dynamic range! Most modern OST CDs are compressed to keep everything at a similar volume. This 2CD edition makes you appreciate every nuance of the music when played at a good volume. And iTunes will not fix it - it will make it too loud and clip it, which is also very very bad.

You just can't be happy, can you ? :P

Hey we need the pair to make it a good set! :P

I already know two people who have it, so you should just post the info for us :) I'll make you the coverart in return.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-09 00:00:00
So it's out ! Well I guess after nearly 8 months undercovered, it was supposed to leak one way or another...

Is the world better ? The food tastes better ? The future brighter ??

Haha

You know, this bootleg just adds 30 min of unreleased music (and some very repetitive Joker variations)... It's not SUCH a big deal, considering we had a 2 CD set already (even though poorly edited :P)...

And Iceboy, you clearly look like you're trying to imitate my edit of Why So Serious ? Pay attention : at the end of Why So Serious?, faded with I'm Not A Hero on OST, I added between 0:28 & 0:44 of Bank Robbery to fit ! And then cut it violently to add some more "anarchy" to the cue ! xD I had not really other options left... :P

And I changed the tracklist here slightly...

"Is the world better ? The food tastes better ? The future brighter ??"

For some of us - yes. Yes it is, yes it does. Is that so bad?

Score music is part of my very essence. So to hear more of it, just makes my life that little better.

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-09 00:00:00
30 mins or not, I dont care!!! :D

Now all we need is Hybrid to list Batman Begins 2CD and others. They must exist!
Why wont you add secret stuff for us? Why not give fans information on whats out there? Why is that bad?

BATMAN BEGINS!!!




please and thanks ;)

but i think there will be high demand (amongst us) for a batman begins complete score if dark knight rises gets a complete score release.

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-09 00:00:00
So uhh, could anyone remind me why this is so amazing? I mean, the official 2-CD edition already had all the major stuff on it so what great unreleased cues are still to be discovered on this bootleg?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-09 00:00:00
Iceboy, I just can't, cause it turns people on, they'll start to ask questions etc...

And I'm mainly thinking about people who don't want to be bothered with those question...

So keep cool, and enjoy what you have so far !! :P

In the end everything has it`s complete release stored somewhere in RCP... I think there`s no point in adding it to H-Z.com discography when there`s nobody outside "the trusted circle" who has it. :-)

"Iceboy, I just can't, cause it turns people on, they'll start to ask questions etc...

If people ask questions, so what? People just like to know. I think if you have stuff, you should post it, even if its just every now and then.

And you know, once something is leaked, more people have it than you think. And it always gets out so you might as well just post the tracklist here and be done.

Hybrid, how come your Joker Suite is 15secs or so longer than Why So Serious? And why include The Dark Knight suite from the OST when it contains music already on the bootleg?

Soooooo :

1m4 Dirty Cash is in OST's "Always A Catch" (from 0:46 to the end), should have been used when the camera's entering the robbed bank near the beginning, with Gordon inside checking the $$$ and Batman joins him.

2m13 Halfway To Hong Kong is in OST's "Halfway To Hong Kong" (from 2:26 to the end), should have been when Gordon, the Bat & Dent are discussing on the roof about what to do with Lau.

But both scenes have no music (so the bootleg hasn't them either). I've watched both scenes with music and it worked very well... I guess they just decided to go without it. :)

On the sheet music, Action Ice Theme & New Batman Theme are very similar, starting the exact same way... But as I know nothing about reading music, I can't confirm totally haha ! But Like A Dog Chasing Cars definitely is a Theme Suite for Batman... :)

And for Who Appointed The Batman, well on the sheet music there's something written by JNH for the alt, like it just has an instrument added or removed... Nothing special missing... That cue just sounds like it's from Blood Diamond... :)

Takehiro reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-08 00:00:00
I second the request for the source of Dirty Cash and Who Appointed Batman Alternate. Are they on the soundtrack?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-08 00:00:00
I just edited the end of Why So Serious with another cue to make it "cut" properly, as on the OST it's faded with "Find The Batman" (I'm Not A Hero's beginning)...

And TDK suite is truly a SUITE, not a MONTAGE, it has many things not in the film score (rearranged stuff) ! :)

Gavin Salkeld - Composer reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-08 00:00:00
Yes, this is the version I have. I cut some of the silence from the start and ends of some cues as some of them had long pauses, so my running time is ever so slightly shorter.

Iceboy reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-08 00:00:00
Did you take it from the start or end of the cue?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-08 00:00:00
Just a segment of Bank Robbery, 10 sec, nothing special, for a proper finish... :)
