Just want shrike death cue!I feel as though Menken did a bit more to differentiate his 2017 Beauty and the Beast from the 1991 one. The major pieces like "Prologue" and "Transformation" were left relatively intact but otherwise the rewrite was a bit more substantial than what Zimmer and crew did here. Compare the final battle music from the original (which consists to a large degree of upbeat instrumental versions of "Be Our Guest") to the remake (which is largely serious, straightforward orchestral action music). I haven't heard his new Aladdin so I'm not sure what the old:new ratio was there.<br><br>I'm not necessarily complaining, this is basically what I expected the score would be from the moment it was announced. The problem lies deeper, with the entire premise of these pointless remakes that allow very little wiggle room for freshness or creativity. Of course, I have no doubt this movie will make north of a billion dollars and give the Disney execs further license to print money. Maybe by the time they've remade every single film in their vault enough time will have passed that they can just start from the beginning again and nobody need ever be subject to the indignity of an original story ever again.It's a variation of the theme Anthem from the first Top Gun film by Harold Faltermeyer.whats the name of the song being played in this trailer?<br>is it available onlineThis is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.
Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.Thanks, that's great!!<br><br>Hooe those sessions will be here soon. Still a lot of music music. Would have liked it better if those remixes, were actually score tracksMera Montage is the big rock vocal cue used during the Sicily Battle & the Wine scene.<br><br>Home Invasion the opening soldiers barging in to capture Atlanna, as well as a part of the Black Manta / Orm negotiation scene.<br><br>Saving Pops is... the saving pops scene...<br><br>Ahab Wave is the tsunami scene + and when Aquaman arrives to the sub to fight Manta's gang.<br><br>Ask the Sea is when Aquaman refuses to help Manta's dad.<br><br>Olbigation is the soft piece in the plane when Aquaman & Mera talk.<br><br>Dunes is the comedic Dunes slide scene...
I just want the Sicily Battle music!Having seen it I can say visually it is incredible, definitely a work of art on that level. What sets it back (for me personally) is the lack of a strong emotional core. The choice to make the animals realistic looks great, but doesn’t have the same range that the hand drawn version had in terms of giving the animals the facial characteristics like the original. Soulless might be kind of harsh, but I didn’t feel anything throughout. Also doing a shot-for-shot remake probably wasn’t the best approach. <br><br>Musically though; this definitely was a great reminder as to why the original score is still a classic. Like everyone has said, it’s a perfect companion piece that actually fixes some minor flaws and fleshes out some ideas much better. Some important cues missing though.“Ask The Sea” <br>Oh please be the cue I want...Deluxe edition releases tomorrow<br>http :// filmmusicreporter .com /2019/07/18/aquaman-deluxe-edition-soundtrack-to-be-released /Didn't Menken do much the same with Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast? I think the only ones who have been the most original with the scores to these remakes have been Danny Elfman and John Debney.<br><br>My personal view is this serves as a great compliment to the 1994 soundtrack, not an outright replacement. If you combined the two you'd get quite the meaty soundtrack.<br><br>As for the film itself, I highly doubt it will be as 'great' as the original, but that's not to say that it deserves the slating critics have given it either. I personally can't say - I haven't seen it yet.
Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.I have to agree. It's a stellar score and I love it, but it was written 25 years ago, nevertheless.<br>Still, credit where credit's due, as you mentioned, the new 'Stampede' is a beast of a track, really added to the original, as well as the 'Battle' cue, awesome stuff for sure. <br>Haven't seen the movie yet, but I really hope it measures up, at least in the same way the score does.Most of it sounds like a high quality youtube remix to me, honestly. it's serviceable but unnecessary.Probably Zimmer, in 1994. It's part of the demoes he included on the Legacy set so I'd say it's a safe bet.panpipes or flute doesnt matter, i just wondering who composed this :D

As to Rango Returns being a 100% copy of Pirates, you couldn't be more wrong. This is an amalgam of Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West and For a Few Dollars More. Don't believe me?

Actually the Finale track is like 6 minutes long, so if you love that track you're in luck - the actual track is longer than the version used in the film....awesomeness.

FYI the defeated lizard track mentioned here is not a Zimmer composition...But a Danny Elfman one, from the 2007 the Kingdom score...

Why its in this movie I have no idea, but wow...nice fit.

@ Mr.VFX: just saw the movie, this piece of music isn't on the soundtrack. But I think it's the only remarquable cue that has been forgotten on the album.

Btw it's an amazing movie, i wanna see it again and again!

I've just seen the film in a press screening an I have to say:
This is what cinema was made for - it's brilliant!
I only enjoyed the really good animated films like "Wall-E" or "How to train your dragon" and now I love "Rango". It's different, it's clever writing, it's looking absolutely exquisite and children are not the target group!

The soundtrack is a lovely and playful hommage to Morricone and classic themes. Hans created the perfect music to a great film. Especially the track, when Rango has to leave the city as a tragic, defeated lizard and he walks through the desert by night is Hans Zimmer as his best. Great composition, elegant arrangement - so beautyful and sad!

Does anyone knows which track it is on the CD?

Okay so Rango isn't a masterpiece. It's still very good, and I'm sure Hans didn's spend very long on it like he does his big projects. Look at Sherlock Holmes. Brilliant piece of work that took 7 months. Same with Inception 6 months or so. I think Pirates 4 will be a great score as he's been working on it for 4-5 months. Then that leaves the rest of the year for Sherlock Holmes 2. If you look at the previous sequels Hans has done (Dead Man's Chest or Dark Knight) he puts a lot of work into making sure that they excel even more than the original (not like HGW for example with shrek and narnia where the first score was always the best). So I'm confident that he'll put out two brilliant scores this year, with Rango and Kung Fu Panda 2 being nice little bonuses. Although with Powell working on the latter, it's sure to be fantastic!

So what? Who said that composer have to write 6 scores a year? Look at 1998 - Thin Red Line and Prince of Egypt. 2 masterpieces. Now he's involved in 6 projects and I bet he'll be helping others in their work. What for? For money, Hans???

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that "Underground" is by Geoff Zanelli. It starts off with his trademark wind-instrument sound, and has a dark Zanelli-ish sound to it.

Sherlock Holmes with a little Mexican accent - nothing original. Best parts are those with dialogues. Although Wagner on banjos is quite nice.

I miss Zimmer from 20th century...

Jo: I don`t think we can judge the score as a whole just by this OST. If the movie has at least 80 minutes of score (which I think isn`t anything special these days), then there are tons of unreleased cues. .-)

Jo reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-23 00:00:00
LOL @ Rango Returns. If the scene in the movie is similar to the Pirates one, I'll LOVE the whole idea of it.

I understand that many of you say it has Pirates and Sherlock in it. I'm just glad I didn't read those comment before I heard the music - Pirates and SH are two of my most favourite Hans soundtracks EVER. And clearly Rango could never come in light years range of that.

I still think that Hans and animated movies are not meant to be, it's cool if it's fun for him, but I'll never be excited for one of those. With that said, I think Rango is good enough for a Hans animated film score - especially since it sounds so weird, what with all the other film soundtracks that come to your mind. I dont think Hans 'copies' out of lack of creativity. I will believe it fits the theme of the film. Rango seems to "pay tribute" to other films so maybe the music should do the same :P

@ Adrian,

I know, you are right. It was probably a decision between Verbinski and Zimmer to homage Morricone. They both seem to love his music. And I can't blame them, Morricone is full of awesome.
However I always thought that the sound of the POTC scores in general was always more appropiate for an epic western than for a pirate film. For example, "He's a Pirate" evoques my mind with images of a cowboy shooting bad guys in the desert rather than pirates swordfighting.
Sherlock has the same feel too. Even the orchestration of the main theme has more in common with the western tradition than with detective stories.

Despite that, Hans did a refreshing job bringing new styles to genre movies. He proved that the pirates not always need a Korngoldian approach, musically speaking.

However, I would love to hear Hans do a proper western in his own way. It could be amazing.

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-22 00:00:00
John, Zimmer is possibly keeping that "Proper Western" score idea for Verbinski's "Lone Ranger". Why waste it on some soon-to-be-forgotten animated film? =)

the theme in this score, starts at 2.23 in the rango suite and is reprised in rango and beans.

It sounds very like something by ennio morricone, but I can't remember exactly. Does anyone know which morricone work it is?

I can't decide if it's a direct lift or just similar chord progressions. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

Great score btw.

For anyone whose interested, the dialogue comes in at key points, mainly with the mexican band of owls used in the trailers, and occassionally from Rango. I really didn't find it to be an issue at all. Sets the scene without the need for the movie. Anyone whose been ranging at it, try EQing it out, see how well that turns out :P

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
- Rango suite: sounded like a mix between sherlock holmes and pirates. Where is your creativity now, Hans?
- We ride, really: sounded like John Powell's HTTYD score(0:11-0:17 part) and pirates( again ). Same question. You know what Hans, you teach someone that will beat you.
- Bats: A good combination of many classical themes. But, still bad because i want to hear a new theme for this kind of scene.

Overall, decent. Too many copying-from-previous-soundtrack-that-only-zimmer-can-do
I hope you can do better on Pirates.

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
In the first place, "Parlay" is a homage to Morricone's "Once Upon a Time in the West". So as Rango is a western parody, it makes more sense here.

I wonder who's fault it is that on Zimmer his CD's are so short in playtime and that the best action cues are always left off or are bonus tracks.

Is it his decision? Or the movie studio...

Cause most other composers (RCP or not) usually give a full album representation of their music in the film these days. And not just some 'extracts'.

And the worst part is that no expanded scores of him leak like in the good old days cause those where the best...
