The track is unreleased yeah, part of the movie's climax<br>chronologically it goes between Devils Anus and 'Asgard is a People'The Sierra Leone track Andrew K posted (link below)...I almost wonder if that's how 2010s Zimmer would redo The Lion King. More bass, more minimalist, more Interstellar...but still with an African flare.Horner and many others with Star Trek is a good example too.Huh. Well, the music Andrew posted is nice."Don't believe everything you hear, son."
what do you gyus think about this? <br><br>www . youtube.com/watch?v=9riigqWjovMHallo,<br><br>Der 'Gladiator' ist schon langsam in die Jahre gekommen, die Musik ist aber nicht šlter geworden. Genial.<br><br>GruŖ  <br><br>Not bad score.<br><br>But I prefer the other oneIsnít that ironic that DC is abandoning the continuity while Marvel is finally embracing it?<br><br>For any electronic fans out there, this score is definitely a must listen, there are some badass 80ís beats (with a dash of Tron legacy) in here.I'm so mad at DC right now I'd rather promote Marvel !! lol<br><br><br>Well jokes aside I add cause Andrew worked on it. And btw he posted another 5 min cue on his Soundcloud, dunno if it's unreleased, there'll better specialists of that score than me !
Yeah, I happen to have seen the film and the score is not really "coherent", it's more like many different cues put together...Okay, thanks for clearing that up. The Tracks released were kind of interesting, a kind of mix of soundsAnyone else think Hans knew about all the studio meddling during pre-production, the rewrites etc and walked away ? I mean, when I heard Elfman's score I thought it was generic and wouldn't fit the movie. Then I watched the movie and it fits well. The movie is just as bland as the music in the background.I don't have to ask, that movie was a failure that barely got distributed... No one had any interest in releasing this score...Hybrid, did you ever ask Hans why this score wasn't released?
After watching the movie, I just have to say it was okay. It had some great moments but for me it had also many problems. And one of them was the music. For most of the part it wasn't even noticeable and when it was, it was like random background music with no really emotion or heart.<br><br>BvS and MoS movies can be criticized for some things but the score is not one of them. The movie gave the movie a strong and powerful side, as well as a heart and emotion into it. In this movie there were so many moments that needed different score. <br>***SPOILERS***<br>Superman's resurrection needed the MoS in full epic form. Wonder Woman at the bank at the beggining needed her theme with the electric cello in full power.<br>The Batman theme at the beginning when he is after that Parademon.<br>We should have a really memorable theme for the whole Justice League as well as for each individual member.<br>The scenes with Clark and Lois at the house in Kansas and when his mother sees him, this needed the piano theme from This Is Clark kent or something like that.<br>And that final moments with Superman opening his shirt showing the Superman logo and then flying to the sky, we needed something like "What Are You Going To Do When You're Not Saving The World?" or "Flight" and not that unmemorable music we got.<br><br>I really hope that the petition of the Extended Cut of the movie made by Zack with Junkie's music gets to be released someday, but for now, I'm disappointed.Sounds fun!!<br>Thanks for the linkAny ideas on the Chronological Order of the Tracks?<br>I made a start here...<br><br><br>Logos<br>Batman On The Roof<br>Everybody Knows - Titles<br>Wonder Woman Rescue<br><br>...<br>Icky Thump<br>Aquaman In Atlantis<br>...<br>1m1a Krypton (from Man Of Steel)<br>Spark Of The Flash<br>Friends And Foes<br>...<br>Come Together - Credits<br>Anti-Hero Theme - CreditsNo, they are the full score cues- as presented in the film. The presentation of the final three tracks on the first disc are edited down for timing.* I posted this at filmtracks and wanted to share it here as well. <br><br>Danny Elfman's comments are very disrespectful and so disappointing for a creative person to hear, especially for composers. Nostalgia is a big problem with Hollywood and it's a simple Jedi mind trick. It's slightly different, but the same meal over and over with different seasoning. Imagine if James Horner didn't get to write the score he wanted for Spider-Man? Or Zimmer had to use Elfmans Batman theme for the DK triliolgy or BvS? Or Shirley Walkers incredible Batman theme for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Or Giacchino just used the original star trek theme, or the original Star Wars themes for Rogue One and created nothing new at all? How boring and uninspiring for the composers not being able to challenge themselves to create new original music.<br><br>Whether you like these scores or not isn't important, the pursuit to create something new is what drives a creative person and gives us freedom in choosing something to enjoy and not enjoy. I love the original Batman theme by Elfman but I love it in the Burton films. I love Zimmer scores for both the DK trilogy and BvS. I am happy I can enjoy both types of scores and films but there are those who don't and that's a great thing because that means we are not all the same and that brings variety of opinion and taste which creates real conversation and most importantly gives an identity to a project.<br><br>It's easy to go back to original ideas, but I respect the creators who actually take the risk and want to try and do something new. If Danny Elfman stands by his words he should have just used the original Batman theme from the Tv Show and film or the original Spider-Man theme. Oops he didn't and we got a whole new Batman theme and Spider-man theme which most of us love. Thank god he didn't stick to using the original themes. The Batman reboots and superman and Spider-man reboots are completely different takes on the characters and that's why they deserve their own new themes and soundscapes. The only time I think an original theme from a film should be used in a new film with the same characters is if it's actually a sequel or prequel connected to that actual original film. Re-boots should always have new original music.<br><br>In the end the comments from Elfman are simply stupid and uninspiring and it's definitely a hidden ego coming through I never new he had which is a shame. I remember what Zimmer said about Danny Elfman's Batman theme being a bit jolly, but that's not attacking Elfman at all, it's how he felt and heard the music and felt that that style wouldn't fit in the new batman films ect.. I have always found the original Batman theme a bit on the jolly side too and I love it because it nails Burton's take on the character and world. That theme is for Keaton's Batman, no one else's.<br><br>One final point, if we keep wanting to just revisit the past and hear and see the same thing over and over and not be challenged with new ideas, what a damn uninspiring and boring world of creativity we will live in.<br><br>All the best to you all!<br><br>

This score is pure awesomeness !

Yeah i agree the movie was casual but if there is one thing that made it rock is the score. So heroic the composer made an amazing work

Ds reply Replies: 4 || 2014-05-20 20:50:40
"Kingsman: The Secret Service", the new movie directed by Matthew Vaughn, will be scored by Henry Jackman & Matt Margeson! Yes!


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-20 21:00:40
Yep !!! :)


Anonymous2014-05-21 13:21:54
More likely Matt Margeson alone.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-21 13:49:03
Absolutely not... Very collaborative this time... ;)


RealFfingMusic2014-05-21 15:27:40
Never contradict Hybrid. Except when he's too convincing.

Terrible score by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margerson, wait for a jewel it's too much after hear Kick-Ass: The Score, but at least, that score have a couple of remarkable themes. On Kick-Ass 2, Jackman and Margerson abuse of the Kick-Ass Theme, and use it for all, exist some good themes, but aren't the enough good like to save this soundtrack of the mediocrity


thejok3rrules2014-02-01 04:20:06
Well, everyone has an opinion... You can say you don't like it, but who are you to say it is not good?


dark prince2014-02-01 04:31:32
You're right, that are my likes XD

thejok3rrules reply Replies: 5 || 2014-01-04 21:22:03
Does anyone know if there's any kind of video or interview of Margesson about this score?

I haven't watched it yet, so I don't know what it's worth, but here :

Hybrid, little Hybrid... Let's not waste time, just give us the credits. Now. Please ;)


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-04 01:25:06
For goodness sakes. Leave off. If Hybrid had anything more specific, he would have told us by now. Sheesh.


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 04:44:16
Are you serious? Did you forget how Hybrid can sometimes be... not nice at all? I like him, but sometimes he doesn't tell us everything....


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-04 18:36:54
The funny think jok3r is that Matthew actually came here and noticed your comments. I told him to come here & answer you directly but he was too shy... :)

Anyway I have nothing more to add, didn't what I say give you all you need ?


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 20:55:53
Really? You gotta be kidding me! How could I contact him?


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 20:57:25
thejok3rrules@hotmail.com is my email adress, so I hope this great composer will talk to me, as, like I said previously, Kick-Ass 2 is my favorite score this year! :D


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 21:02:44
And besides, I would have appreciated more specific details concerning the credits, but thanks anyway, Hybrid!


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-04 21:11:23
More people than you'd think actually take a look around. That's why I just go total "facepalm" when I see some stuff being said around ! :P

Hahaha! Don't worry, I understand xD

Hybrid, I remember you said once the credits were actually difficult to give... Any new information about that? I just want to know everything from the best score I've heard this year!


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-02 22:45:59
It's mainly Matt. All the new themes are his. Henry was doing Turbo...


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 23:32:19
That's interesting because the score sounds totally like Henry Jackman's style. Margeson's only previous score sounded more like a cross between Brian Tyler and Transformers. Maybe that just goes to show how much input Margeson has had on Jackman's recent scores though.

What new themes, though? I didn't hear any...only the main theme carried over from Kick-Ass and that villain theme that's basically an adaptation of 28 Days Later.


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-03 00:06:08
Mindy's theme and the Mofo's theme.


thejok3rrules2013-10-03 02:48:09
Hybrid, any kind of credits to give us? :D

Fantastic score! It works greatly with the picture... and it's much more coherent than the previous one (despite it often references it's predecessor).


thejok3rrules2013-08-27 03:00:52
If there's anything missing, I don't know what it is... Btw, it might be one of the most pleasant score I've heard in years! :D I don't remember the last time I had so much fun listening to music! xD

It looks like "Fatherly Sacrifice" is lifted note by note from the chorale tune that starts around 2m34s of "You're My Hero" from Wreck-It Ralph soundtrack. I wonder if it was a temp-track thing.


KaijuRoyaume2013-08-18 22:22:25
The track "Honor To Serve Him" uses John Murphy's theme for Big Daddy (adapted from 28 weeks later), right ?

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2013-08-18 13:14:28
This is a cool score. I don't think it tops the 1st one but it's still very good. Margeson tried to keep a tone that's like a mix of Jackman and Murphy's tracks from the 1st movie, that's cool :)

I read somewhere that the physical version will contain "additionnal music not featured in the digital edition". Any info about that?


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-10 15:07:16
This is the tracklist of the LLL release... The digital will have less tracks.

Thanks. Is the digital release earlier?

There's a very cool sample at the official movie website!

Fine! :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 23:28:31
Henry Jackman as "composer"? As opposed to just "main theme"? I thought this was Margeson alone.


Hybrid Soldier2013-06-24 23:30:19
It's... complicated... :)

Henry/Matt is fine... ;)


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 23:48:17
These Kick Ass movies seem to specialize in overly confusing composer situations... ^^
