I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.
Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronicsSo I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter egg

Wow, this score is such a mess, both in film and out. Even moreso than The Lone Ranger. Between the temp tracks and the straight rip offs (Rango Returns which is basically "Parlay" which itself was inspired by Morricone) there is almost nothing original here. That being said, It's still incredibly fun to listen to. The massive amount of co-composers definitely helps.

Also Hybrid, slightly off-topic but did Zimmer have a bad experience on The Lone Ranger? I remember hearing something about that, but wasn't entirely sure (and I honestly love that score)


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-11 20:42:50
No one wants to talk about TLR, not even Verbinski ! lol


mpolonest123 2017-05-11 20:51:57
Lol! I personally didn't find the film that bad, but I guess the production must've been a different story....


Ds2017-05-11 22:16:27
That's a pity because that movie was far from bad. Much better than most of the recent blockbusters in my opinion. Really nothing to be ashamed of.

Levi reply Replies: 0 || 2014-01-01 02:52:44
Something that kinda confuses me: does Hans actually sit down and write the cues WITH people like Geoff Zanelli, or does he just kinda give a layout of the cue and then the other guy goes off and does it on his own?

Areozz reply Replies: 0 || 2013-10-12 17:01:35
Might anyone be able to track down the slate numbers for this set? I already have some of them from when that set of demos surfaced a while back, but there's still a good amount missing.

Thanks for any help!

I'm trying to figure out what other Zimmer work the "Rango Suite" sounds like, but I can't place it. :/


Meta2013-05-31 06:06:25
Broken Arrow, perhaps...Upon listening to Rango it reminded me alt of that score. Particularly the synth banjo/guitar and the harmonica....


MGDrone2013-05-31 18:29:11
As Good As It Gets haha. What do they have in common? Nuthin', but it's still cool to know haha.

Did someone notice Lorne putting a Crysis 2 theme right in the middle of it ? :P


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-13 23:14:26
Not yet. Damnit, too many leaks recently, plus exams, equals not enough time to listen to all these goodies (but apparently enough time to talk about them on the Internet...uhh...)

What cue? :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 23:18:53
Rodents Rise !


BTW Lorne didn't do many cues on it, but surely "I'm Going Back" is one of my fav' of the entire score... :)


Prott2013-05-30 23:30:15
Haha, at first I was trying to find the Prophet's theme (wondering how the hell did I manage to miss that one). Then I discovered it's actualy the Alien's theme. :-)
It's a great cue (... too bad this theme is missing from both Rango's and Crysis' OSTs).



Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2013-05-30 12:38:00
2 things about this score.

The Elfman temp cue from The Kingdom was kept in the final film cause HZ & Gore couldn't come up with anything better without just being a poor ripoff. Danny's track was perfect, so they decided to keep it.

Atli Örvarsson & his assistant Dave Fleming have an official "arranger" & "tech advisor" credit, but it's likely they've done nothing on it. Atli started working on it but on his very first cues left the project to do another score. So unless a few arrangements he did were kept, Atli was not involved... But still got credited !

Preacher reply Replies: 6 || 2013-05-13 05:09:45
OK instead of Luring In Jake, I got a track called Here It Comes that runs 5:25. And a track called The Other Side, which isn't on here. What gives? Why do leaked scores never match the tracklists here? How do we know what's what?


Preacher2013-05-13 05:11:34
And We Ride #2 Alternate is like 50 seconds, not 4 mins... *sigh*


Mike2013-05-13 06:10:25
Remember, Preacher, this is not the complete score. It's expanded. That should tell you immediately that some music will be missing. Remember, too, that even if a score is listed as "complete", it might STILL have music missing (such as The Dark Knight Rises).


Preacher2013-05-13 06:32:21
I understand, but the recent leak has different tracks to this edition. One would think they would be the same.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 09:45:03
The We Ride length was my bad (hey, try typing this whole stuff in a row without making a typo, TRY ! :P) !

The Other Side, if you have any little knowledge or interest in Hans Zimmer, you'd just notice it's a source cue taken from The Weatherman.


Preacher2013-05-13 10:01:06
Thanks for that - I don't know the Weatherman score.
What about Here It Comes/It's A Miracle? Are they the same?


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 10:02:12
Yeah I use official cue sheet titles... :)
