Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!Oh, yes.<br><br>Maybe this month, right?
The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?I doubt there'll be a score release.
The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /:I gotta say that short film was spectacular even with I Phone 11, the score by Lorne Balfe fitted very well with the scenes introduced.I'd say that this anthem was pretty great for Zimmer to score a soccer team that has been alive for 25 years.Cheers guys, much appreciated!<br>In my mind I had some video interview though, as I always like watching those as well. I do wonder if there was an extra section on the home release of the movie where ideally there might be.Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest film composers working in the industry today.  He won an Academy Award for his work on The Lion King, and has been nominated for six other films including Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, and As Good As It Gets. With The Last Samurai he celebrates his 100th film score, and SoundtrackNet had an opportunity to talk with Hans a few weeks ago during a rare break in his busy schedule working on Something's Gotta Give.<br><br>You've scored many projects during your career, and The Last Samurai is being touted as your 100th film score…<br><br>Well, I'm terrible with math, so I'm not doing the counting. It could be more, it could be less – but apparently it's the 100th.<br><br>So how did you get involved with the project?<br><br>If you're lucky enough to get nominated for an Oscar, you get invited to the Oscar nominee's luncheon where they hand out these little nomination certificates. There are usually 150 people standing there, and people are invited up in alphabetical order, starting with the As. By the time they get to the Cs, everybody's already back at their table chatting and eating, and while the first people called get thunderous applause, you can imagine what it's like when your name starts with Z!<br><br>So Ed Zwick and I were standing there, waiting at one of these luncheons about four years ago, and we started talking to each other. I asked him what he was working on and he told me about this movie called The Last Samurai, which I thought sounded interesting and I asked him to send me a script. After the script arrived, I didn't hear from him for a long time and I thought he'd forgotten about me, not thinking about how difficult it is to set up a samurai movie these days. The other thing I liked about the project was that Tom Cruise was involved, so it was like returning home, since I've scored a bunch of his movies – I knew we were going to have a good time.<br><br>Did it end up that way?<br><br>Ed and his editor Steve Rosenblum are such gentlemen, so together and professional, and they basically did one cut of the film, screened it, and everyone loved their work. So after this, they had plenty of time to come and hang with me, and while I usually love the re-cutting process because it's a diversionary tactic to keep the director and editor out of my life, these guys were great to have around. <br><br>Of course, my sense of paranoia made me think that something was going wrong all the time, waiting for the other shoe to drop, as it were, but it never happened. Ed phoned this morning and I thought, "Oh my god – rewrite!" It's just how my brain works. But I think he and I feel a bit odd now: we've been seeing each other every day for months, and suddenly we're done. I completely understand why people have a problem finishing a movie, because there's something really nice about the process – completion is far more boring.<br><br>For Samurai, you used Japanese percussions and ethnic woodwinds, without getting too 'Japanese'.<br><br>My problem is that I feel Japanese music is really inaccessible to Western ears, and I was really struggling with this film initially, trying to figure out what I was doing. This idea popped into my head for using Western-style themes, but applying a Japanese aesthetic to them, which sounds great of course, until I had to ask myself what I meant! Actually, I think it's just my way of not overloading certain things with too many colors, or being geometrically precise about my cues and not making them too flowery.<br><br>The Tom Cruise character is one of those nasty drunks at the beginning, who obviously has some serious problems he's trying to deal with, or not deal with. He's obnoxious and restless, suffering sleepless nights and is very un-Tom. For me, this character's journey was about his need to earn tranquility and peace, so within the score there's this very romantic, overblown and passionate theme. It's like a juvenile way of dealing with life and death – the pain and liebestod.<br><br>However, to contrast with these very relentless themes, there are a number of stark, formal and sober pieces, because I wanted to take Tom's character on a journey. He comes from America and ends up in this foreign place where he doesn't speak the language or understand the culture. But at the end of the movie, I want the audience to think that there isn't a more beautiful place for him to be, that he is at home in Japan and finally at peace.<br><br>There are many useless acts of bravery we do out of misguided romanticism, and this movie is full of courageous and dignified acts of bravery. So I wanted to play off these acts, since both the American and Japanese cultures have a concept of heroism, and I just wanted to see if I could play with the nature of the two different concepts.<br><br>So you didn't want to do the stereotypical Japanese thing...<br><br>Absolutely not! Take Akira Kurosawa's Ran, for example, which has this brilliant score where Takemitsu writes Western music, but with an Eastern accent. Somebody asked me a few days ago why As Good As It Gets was European – why did I write a European score for a quintessentially American story? For me, it's because Jack Nicholson was crazy in the movie, and I felt one of the great things about America is how they always think we Europeans are crazy. So by writing a European-styled score, it's my way of saying that Jack is crazy, but it's alright!<br><br>How do you feel about people who criticize your work for not fitting into the time period, like Gladiator?<br><br>The reason I take these jobs is because I'm interested in foreign cultures, and every time I get to work on a movie I'm thrown into the adventure of whatever that culture is, the time, and wherever the story's taking place. So one of the things I'm very careful about is not to be historically correct to the culture, but, on the other hand, not to insult the underlying aesthetics of that culture either. I remember watching Chariots of Fire and thinking how brilliantly the music worked, never missing that it wasn't period instruments! I grew up listening to Bach played by a symphony orchestra – it's the wrong sized orchestra with the wrong instruments, but I don't think that's the point.<br><br>With Gladiator, Pietro Scalia brought in a CD saying "this is Ancient Roman music," and I said, "Says who? You went to the Ancient Roman music store and bought an Ancient Roman music CD? Bullshit!" We're not anthropologists. Look at he costumes Ridley Scott had: they were more Napoleonic than Roman, which was perhaps fitting since Napoleon had stolen all of his good ideas from the Romans regarding how to make his generals look cool – and so did Hitler! So I got criticized for making the "Entry into Rome" cue too Leni Riefenstahl – but that was the joke! I am allowed to have a sense of humor in my music!<br><br>Earlier this summer your credit on Pirates of the Caribbean was "Score Overproduced by". What was the deal with that?<br><br>Well, I thought honesty was a virtue! But seriously, Jerry Bruckheimer quite rightly asked me not to give him "that old-fashioned Pirate music," and Gore Verbinski, who I adore and did The Ring with, said, "Well, it is a pirate movie, so we have to disguise it." In the end, I spent a day and a half writing tunes, Klaus Badelt wrote a lot of stuff, and we rolled up our sleeves, got drunk, behaved in a debauched way, and produced a score!<br><br>There was a lot of criticism regarding that score, but in the end it had to serve the film - which it did. You seem to get a lot of criticism on any project you do.<br><br>I had the misfortune of going onto the Film Score Monthly web site recently to look something up and vanity made me type in my own name. I suddenly realized that you can't ever get it right. Who do people want me to be? The guy that writes Matchstick Men? Or the guy that writes The Rock? Or the guy that writes Driving Miss Daisy? My need is ultimately to write for myself. I mock myself and I'm ironic about the way I speak about it because if I take it too seriously, it would be a pompous and boring thing to do. But at the same time I take each note I write very seriously – none of them are random.<br><br>The Internet Movie Database always lists you as being attached to multiple projects, so I was curious, what's Sharktail?<br><br>I complained to Jeffrey Katzenberg that I couldn't cross any more Red Seas, or deal with any more horses that can't speak – I wanted to do one of the fun animated movies instead. There's also a hip-hop element in Sharktail, and I haven't been there yet, so it's new territory! King Arthur is still in production, and I literally just got the first bits of footage just before you came here.<br><br>Are you working on all of these projects simultaneously?<br><br>I'm thinking about them! I'm also working with Jim Brooks on his new comedy, Spanglish.<br><br>And speaking of comedies, you recently did Matchstick Men for Ridley, which had a very Nino Rota vibe to it....<br><br>And I gave him credit! I thought, what if Nino had written the theme and I was just doing the variations? But I bet I'm going to get criticized for that because it's not like Gladiator.<br><br>So when did you last have a vacation?<br><br>Well, I went to Japan for a couple of days at the end of November for the Japanese premiere of Samurai, but look, I love what I do! In January I'll travel to Morocco because Ridley will be shooting his next movie, Kingdom of Heaven, so that's like a holiday!<br><br>My family and I are going away at Christmas, and what we used to do would be to rent a house in the mountains and go on these skiing holidays. It would be a crappy house, not as nice as the one we live in, my wife was still going to the market, and we're still washing our plates – so it wasn't a vacation, it was a lot of work! It's taken us a long time, but we just figured it out: we're not practical with vacations – we're staying at hotels! But while the Zimmer family isn't talented when it comes to vacations, we're talented when it comes to work!<br><br>I sat through Samurai the other day, and for the first time watched the whole movie from top to tail with everything finished and completed. It felt really good, better than a vacation. But luckily there were enough things wrong for me to think that I learned something from the experience, and now I can't wait for the next project to try these new ideas out.<br><br>The soundtrack to The Last Samurai is available from Elektra Records, and the film is currently in theaters. Matchstick Men is available on Varese Sarabande Records.<br><br>With thanks to Chet Mehta at Chasen & Co, Jason Cienkus at Warner Brothers, and Nina Lynch and Mark Wherry at Media Ventures for helping with this interview. And, of course, special thanks to Hans.

Canceling the Apocalypse sounds like a perfect end of the album track, don't you think? :)


Topherman82014-01-10 22:18:26
Darth, "No Pulse" actually belongs right after "Go Big or Go Extinct." It plays when Gypsy Danger is dragging the huge tanker to go club the crap outta Otachi.


D A R T H2014-06-15 10:40:43
seriously could you ad an "edit" fonction for the past post, it will be usefull


D A R T H2014-06-15 10:45:22
are you sure "no pulse" mean "no life signal" just after the explosion of gypsy danger ?

John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.


Macejko2017-01-17 20:25:32
FUCK! :(


Crisp Rat2017-01-17 22:34:04
I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.


Scorefan2017-01-18 01:48:04
John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.


...2017-01-18 22:04:32
Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!

I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.


Edmund Meinerts2017-01-19 17:44:35
Paesano's okay but I was actually hoping for Djawadi to return (not so often I say that, but this is his best film score IMO, and only topped by GoT S6 overall).


odne.2017-01-19 22:16:34
Ramin is overrated!


Edmund Meinerts2017-01-19 23:42:59
I agree. I don't think he's anything special. His greatest strengths lie in cool themes and especially rhythmic hooks or ostinatos, but I don't think he's yet written a consistently good score (often some wonderful individual pieces contained within an otherwise bland whole, which describes pretty much the entirety of the Game of Thrones music among other things). I hear positive things about The Great Wall, though.

Macejko will, of course, disagree.

I think Djawadi is a brilliant composer. However I think he gets the wrong gigs (movies). In his TV scores he is way more inventive!

Yes, Paesano is a good choice, but for Ramin it would be better..... He would be the better option in my eyes ;)

Hybrid. Do you think or have any idea if Ramin will return to score Pacific Rim Maeltrom? Since it is not directed by Del Toro only pruduced I hope that he will score it again. Thanks for answering

Hybrid, I guess this has been asked before, but do you know the reason why Ramin was replaced on Edge of Tomorrow. Beck's score is pretty bad and uninteresting, so it got me thinking about what Djawadi might have done with it...


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-14 23:19:56
Dunno...

But seeing how it turned to be, he can be happy he didn't score it in the end...


Edmund Meinerts2014-06-14 23:29:42
Doug Liman doesn't seem to have that great taste in music. Even when he was working with Powell, the scores they made together aren't anywhere near his best (Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jumper and Fair Game). And I heard that Edge of Tomorrow was temped with Battleship. Bleurgh.


Ds2014-06-15 00:06:58
Uh? He could just have scored his best movie yet... Edge Of Tomorrow was a blast, the only thing it was missing was a good score...


...2014-06-15 00:07:19
Well, the movie turned out fine...The score just wasn't any good:(


Hybrid Soldier2014-06-15 00:28:24

The score... Well there was a score ?

I don't trust in Ramin Djawadi (just to clarify), don't like his excessively electronic and impersonal style, must accept than with this movie, I though than maybe Djawadi do a score than likes me, cannot be more wrong, is simply boring and rutinary, only the main theme saves of the burn, but feels like something may be changed to other movie (like Iron Man). Didn't like me, because is a impersonal and excessively rutinary score

dark prince, No offense but it looks like you are writing "than" instead of "that" in every post of yours. Is there something wrong with your keyboard or keypad?

Ok, seriously now, Hybrid, can you please tell me why was Djawadi replaced on "Edge of Tommorow"?


Russel2013-12-29 00:39:48
It seems that this Darren Rutter guy, who seems to be a newer composer...It seems that he has been listed as Additional music for that film. So maybe he is helping Djawadi, who knows. I'd rather hear Djawadi's work for this film, as well. This Darren Rutter person is a mystery to most of us.


Macejko2013-12-29 09:57:46
Unfortunately, I learned on Filmmusicreporter.com that there is indeed a new composer onboard. It's not Rutter, but someone else. So it seems that Ramin is not composing this film and I would like to know why.


Edmund Meinerts2013-12-29 12:12:54
Well, he was only ever listed on imdb...which is never the most reliable of sources. Don't take it too personally. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2013-12-29 12:44:01
Well I'm pretty sure I saw it on his official resume at GSA... Don't really remember though... It's not there anymore... lol


Macejko2013-12-29 15:15:35
That's the thing, Edmund - he was officially announced on filmmusicreporter.com. It was not just IMDb thing. And I don't take it personally, I am well aware that life has its ups and downs ;)


isildur2013-12-29 16:58:47
Bugger! I was really looking forward to Ramin's score. Anyway this Rutter guy, is he any good? Anyone?


Macejko2013-12-29 17:57:54
Isildur: Doesn't matter, he's not scoring it either.


Joshua2014-01-10 07:09:53
Christophe Beck????? I was looking forward to seeing what Ramin did here :(


tomPoland2014-01-10 09:40:44
@joshua
Give him a credit, he never scored hardcore s-f movie; there's a chance we will get some great and memorable score. I think it's good when composers go outside their box.


Joshua2014-01-10 18:23:05
Oh I love Beck, just wouldn't have been my first choice. Love his Buffy Score.

Wasn't to impressed by the score.

He's done better. (IMO Clash of the Titans & Iron man were his best.


Mike2014-01-10 04:21:25
It's weird, I generally enjoyed Iron Man also, even if the scoring process was a mess. Something about it just appealed to me, despite the negative reaction it's commonly given.


thejok3rrules2014-01-10 06:42:34
I actually loved Iron Man! I tink it gave a nice rythm for Tony Stark, better than the following score by Debney!

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 2 || 2014-01-08 23:24:09
Wasn't sure where to post this, but since people were talking about it here...It seems that the latest composer slated to score Edge of Tomorrow is Christophe Beck (it's on Film Music Reporter). Intriguing choice. IMO he's a talented composer who unfortunately get stuck in musically-unfruitful comedies a lot, but Percy Jackson and Frozen were both quite good, so I'm looking forward to hearing what he does here.

Still wish it was Powell, though...


Macejko2014-01-09 00:01:10
Fuck this, I'm out.

Ramin is still attached to score "Edge of Tomorrow", right? Because some ass-wipe keeps deleting him from the film's profile on IMDB.

I would say zero chance. Most of the music is pretty much already there. What we really need is the complete score for Game of Thrones (especially for the third season - so many cues missing).


OBZ2013-10-22 12:15:14
I want a complete score as well! They very much left out the dark Kaiju string lines, with the exception of the beginning of the track Double Event.

It appears that Guillermo del Toro enjoyed collaborating with Ramin, because he brought him to score his upcoming vampire series "The Strain" (based on a novel written by him). This is fantastic news for me.

Ramin is also scoring Doug Liman's "Edge of Tomorrow"!

cinematography was incredible in this movie. you can read all the actions sequences pretty nicely. you understand what's happening in the screen. they could have go the transformers/MoS way with a shaky cam all the way and with atrocious zoom but they didn't and i adore it.

4 stars for Pacific Rim ; 1 star for MoS :)


MrZimmerFan2013-07-08 12:55:39
Is simple, if you no enjoy Pacicif Rim, what enjoy for you?, is best revival of MV/RC of 90!, men


tomPoland2013-07-08 13:19:05
Well, Pacific Rimm supposed to be a mindless but fun action score - and it is.
MoS supposed to be something magnificent and timeless - it a simple blockbuster score that will be forgotten after a few moths.


0-cool2013-07-08 14:56:14
who decides what's fun, mindless or timeless?
Both Pacific Rim and MoS are Summer Blockbusters, nothing more


Edmund Meinerts2013-07-08 17:42:38
The difference between Pacific Rim and Man of Steel is that the former doesn't take itself at all seriously whereas the latter does, crushingly so. Even though neither of them are complex works in the slightest. In general I find that Zimmer and MV/RC scores work best when they're just having a blast and being a fun, thematic, cool, unpretentious experience. When Zimmer starts trying to be all "experimental" giving characters one- or two-note themes...trying too hard to make it magnificent and timeless when really he's making it dull and forgettable...it's not what Zimmer is best at, IMO. Scores like MoS and the Batman trilogy don't have anywhere near the charm of PotC (1-3), Sherlock Holmes, even The Lone Ranger, despite all the effort I know Zimmer put into making them.

Then again...there's definitely not three stars' quality difference between the two scores (it's MoS 2.5, PR 3.5 for me). And for the best revival of the MV/RC of the 90s this year, MrZimmerFan, I kindly refer you to Olympus Has Fallen. ;)


Anon2013-07-08 17:50:31
Olympus has Fallen is amazing, but Trevor Morris has not been a part of RCP for a very long time now, don't know if you can really count it as such


MrZimmerFan2013-07-08 18:18:30
@Edmund

Also like Olympus Has Fallen ;)

4/5 stars for me


Meta2013-07-15 03:25:26
WOW...Filmtracks likes an RCP score?

They must have either considered the angry comments from viewers, or they told that guy who HATES RCP and Zimmer to stay away....


Edmund Meinerts2013-07-15 09:18:55
"that guy?" All the Filmtracks reviews are by the SAME guy...and isn't it possible that he just maybe likes this score more than a lot of other RC efforts?

And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he give Crimson Tide five stars? Why is everyone so surprised?

Macejko reply Replies: 0 || 2013-07-11 20:44:39
The unexpected has become a reality and now I must take back almost everything I said earlier. Just saw the movie, and the music works FANTASTIC within it! Now I understand all the musical decisions that has been made. I percieve the soundtrack very differently (and significantly better) now.

Macejko reply Replies: 3 || 2013-06-27 12:06:21
Hate to be the first one to say it, but this is a huge, huge disappointment :( There are few solid moments, but in general it lacks memorable themes, powerfull musical climaxes and most of all - it lacks ideas.
I am known here for loving Djawadi's work very much, and I was highly anticipating this score ever since it was announced in February 2012. But this is truly a let down for me. It'll probably work well in the movie itself, but after 3 listenings I can find no reason why listen to it separately. There might be a slight chance that seeing the movie will afterwards improve the listening experience dramatically (it happened to me with Inception and Man of Steel, for example), but I don't believe it'll happen this time.


MrZimmerFan2013-06-27 12:27:11
Your love for Djawadi is know, but this time you wrong... ;)


Evenstar2013-06-27 15:09:08
I also don't like it.


Ds2013-06-27 18:07:00
This is the kind of non-stop action movie where the score isn't given any moment to breathe. I think this score's going to sound better within the movie. On CD it's a little bit boring, judging by the couple of tracks i've heard.

Macejko2013-06-18 10:28:21
Not quite sure I share your enthusiasm, Hybrid... It sounds kinda I feared it'll sound. I hoped for a big orchestra, but this is more "Person of interst" kind of score, apparently. Still impatiently waiting for the whole thing, though. Samples are often misguiding.


tomPoland2013-06-18 11:57:18
Let us hope, that this won't be as bad as Battleship...

Morello's involvement definitely suggests that the producers are going for a rock influence on much of the score, but that can be a good thing in the proper context. I'm quite interested in hearing how this one sounds...


Macejko2013-06-14 07:33:33
The rock sound got me a little worried there, but since Djawadi said in a interview that the soundtrack will be a combination between rock and traditional (orchestral) sound, I'm still excited to hear it.

If the music in the trailers is an indication of how the actual movie sounds, i'm afraid it WON'T be the score of the year :-(


Macejko2013-06-06 10:49:33
Ds: Music in the trailers has nothing to do with the actual score, trust me. It's just some generic action trailer music. I'm sure Hybrid can confirm it.


Ds2013-06-06 11:45:14
I know the trailer music isn't from Djawadi, but it can be a sign of the kind of music Del Toro (or the producers) wanted in the movie... :/


cody2013-06-06 15:11:35
the music in the trailers were by Groove Addicts & Ninja Tracks, and i hope it, epic!!! but in some of the featurettes thats been released like The Drift for example i think the music in the background IS from the score,
