Is there a complete score out there? If not, don't be surprised there's nothing here yet. Sometimes it takes years before a complete score listing pops on this site.Why no listing here for the complete score?Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!thanks
4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that timei saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.
I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?Yeah that is true, canít argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does ďCalypso Must Be ReleasedĒ sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.@MrTweedy<br>Thatís totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>Itís funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now donít get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. Itís the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the ďrockínírollĒ sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)
@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.Thanks guys, will check out these cues.

I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-22 17:32:39
Pretty sure the reason HGW works with Washington so often is because Tony Scott worked with him so often... :p


Jean-Luc 2018-04-23 05:45:37
I'm agree that

Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??

I can confirm that he is working on it.


Hybrid Soldier2018-04-22 10:25:10

Does anyone know a general chronological order to put this score in for a playlist? It seems most tracks are suites but listening to it it seems to be out of order. And where would the Justin Burnett soundcloud tracks go in the same playlist as well?


Poe2015-04-17 20:49:19
Can anyone help at all with this?

Thank you very much Anonymous. I do not suppose you know which cues made their way onto the score do you? For one example, Concerned Citizen is a title that does not appear in the cue sheets list you supplied so I am assuming that the score title is some kind of compilation of cues?

Picasso reply Replies: 1 || 2015-03-13 13:59:34
watched the movie yesterday, i loved it. BUT, the whole movie and the score to it, screamed so much "Man on Fire".

"A Quiet Voice" is almost the same as "You Betrayed Me" from Man on Fire. All the sound design and effects the same over and over again.

i enjoyed it, because i liked man on fire very much, but then again... doesn't this man have any other ideas? making millions to score for a hollywood movie and giving all the years the same thing?


Hybrid-Fan2015-03-13 15:58:20
yeah, same thoughts here. interesting also to hear AGAIN a track from zack hemsey. first the inception trailer, where he stole zimmer the attention, then the transformers fiasco and then again here a cue.

why don't they just hide zack? he would be a great part of the rcp.

So according to IMDB, Harry is no longer scoring Southpaw, it's now James Horner?!?

Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-19 17:04:32
It is James Horner.


JamesT2015-01-19 19:18:53
Do we know why it went to Horner? Harry said in Sept that we was just about to start working on it.


Prott2015-01-19 20:13:19
I hope it's not because he had to take an extra time to work on Blackhat. :-/


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-19 23:30:57
Horner seems like a really bizarre pick for Antoine Fuqua. To be honest I wouldn't be too surprised if he gets rejected yet again. Still, I hope he stays and I'm curious to see how it turns out - maybe an extension of the most MV/RC-sounding parts of Avatar, which would be awesome IMO!

Felix reply Replies: 0 || 2015-01-05 23:19:10
Hey Hybrid, did they release the Blckhat Score by Harry & Atticus?

Do you know anything about that? , so please let us know

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2014-09-27 17:30:50
This is an example of how to use a score in a movie. Audible throughout, fitting the mood of each scene and the overal tone of the movie, it's a work perfectly done. I enjoyed the movie a lot, and the score was a big part of it!

JamesT reply Replies: 0 || 2014-09-23 20:50:37
Yes! Harry is back. Some great stuff on here! Love the Light It Up-esque theme.

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2014-09-05 08:52:46
Sounds really good!

Btw, didn't know you were working on that one as programmer, Hybrid :p


Hybrid Soldier2014-09-05 10:13:59
If only !! ;)

Though I guess I would just use ton of electro samples from the 90s... lol

Will you be adding Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Harry any time soon? The score has already been confirmed in the deluxe edition of the game.
