Nope@HybridSoldier <br><br>Hope so. Will see the movie this thursday.Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !
Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :P
I wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.
He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?

This score has great themes - Dubois and Vitaly are really fun and catchy - and the classical rearrangements are well-integrated, but something about the score as a whole doesn't work for me.

The action arrangements in particular (except for the Penguin chase) are just boring. I keep hearing the same trumpet patterns, dull violin swirling, and ascending lines again and again. There's no real form or tone to it.

The first score has a lot more feeling to it even with a less "sophisticated" orchestration.

ugh i really want that background song 'where did Alex go?'. specially that part when Alex climbs the wall of the tunnel and jumps, it plays a very beautiful, dramatic song. where can i get that?

So out of interest, how much of this did Zimmer actually write? It looks like he did pretty much nothing on this film.


Anonymous2013-05-31 06:59:23
I'm no expert, but he at least did:

--the main theme
--the opening
--supervised the other cues and gave them the go if he liked them

Is that right? :P


Ds2013-05-31 14:29:27
The tracks HZ did with Junkie XL are awesome, especially the entire Monte Carlo chase. Such a fun music :p

Hybrid, if you get that information, i'm curious about the involvment of HZ on a score like this. I mean it's a very good score for one of last year's best animation movies, but it's not as high-profile as TDKR was.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-31 16:37:02
I won't lie, I'm pretty sure composers have a big freedom on those. HZ is doing the themes of course but I don't think he's as focused as he could be on, say, a Batman.

For the first Madagascar (which was really different cause it only had half an hour of score), he totally left in the middle and Dooley finished, cause he had a little movie called Batman Begins to work on... :P


Mike2013-05-31 20:11:01
He does seem to invest a lot of himself in the Nolan movies.


Lucius2013-06-01 11:23:32
Yeah you can tell the other composers were given freedom here. With TDKR or POTC the cues from other people still sound like Zimmer but here a lot of it doesn't even sound like him.

Circus Zaragoza - Vitaly's Story sounds so much like Night at the Museum at the beginning!

Does this list include the end credits?

I'm looking for a short segment just at the end of the end credits, just before the song credits appear at the very end (DVD release between running time 88:20 and 88:46 minutes).

Does anyone know what this is called?


Ds2013-04-22 12:24:26
The end credits are a compilation of tracks previously played in the movie.

The track you speak about is New York City Surprise, it's also on the official soundtrack album!


MSC2013-04-24 23:50:57
Thank you but that doesn't seem to be it. I don't have the DVD on hand at the moment but I believe it's the short section just before "New York City Surprise" begins.


Ds2013-04-25 00:09:03
I used the european dvd. The running time can vary a little according to the system (PAL, ...). The short section just before that is in track 2: "Bad Dream - New York City" (0'59"-1'20") :)


MSC2013-04-25 20:13:56
Wow, quick and helpful responses, thank you! I checked the official soundtrack which unfortunately doesn't list this track. Is there a way to purchase it somewhere?


Ds2013-04-25 20:37:50
No this track is in the unofficial release only, no way to purchase it. For that your only friend is google :)

As all discs marked 'Unofficial Release', there is no official way to listen them. So you wouldn't get the answer here.

Is the track name "19. Knife Sting - We're Going To America" correct, because I have seen some tracklist with word "Africa", not "America" this track's name?

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 5 || 2012-08-03 07:24:43
Out of the 36 tracks of Madagascar 3 complete film score, what is your favorite track?

To me, my favorite is Monte Carlo Chase Part 1. Somewhere in the middle, I can almost hear the alternate tune of "Skorponok".


Hybrid Soldier2012-08-03 12:14:40
Cannonball was great track not on OST...

Love the "Con Te Partiro" arrangements too... xD

And OF COURSE the "Red Octoberian" Vitaly... :)


Still, I prefer Mada 2 over it...

I could give you full credits of who was in charge of which cue... :)


T-Mann0362012-08-03 21:13:05
If you want to do that, Soldier, we don't mind.
