I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.
Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.Itís definitely one of Bayís best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Canít cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subjectUpset about success? Sounds like someone doesn't know a thing about reasonable criticism. :p<br><br>If anyone likes Balfe, then good on them. I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world. Especially if people are still gonna be excited about hearing the work of someone else when a different person is hired (i.e. what JL might've been).
Can we please change the subject !!!!!!!!it is so boring now.This page is ment to be about the sound track to 12 StrongThere you go again, accusing me of being upset about Balfe's success when I never said anything like that. Stop putting words in my mouth.AgreedThe point is Edmund and others  donít need to keep getting upset about Balfes success.Dont reply and just focus on other conversations.No one here is interested in hearing anyone bashing any of the great composers on this site from Remote. Grow up or move on.Appreciate the voice of support. :)
Good god, this Balfe/Anonymous guys is wreaking havoc! Good thing Djawadi's fans are calmer than Balfe's.Jesus Christ, what a mess! What is wrong with you Balfe fanboys? Edmund comes in trying to settle down the situation and add some nuance and you just curse him out? He even admits to liking Lorne, basically states how the top comment is far too harsh, defends Balfe, and all he does against him is call out Michael for borderline bullying someone else into worshiping Balfe.<br><br>After all of that, all you can possibly say in response to him is "go away you John Powell fanboy"? For saying one thing against a guy basically being a mindless fanboy. Which by the way is an unbelievably poor argument because I've seen Edmund criticize Powell scores before. Is Edmund not aloud to prefer Powell? He didn't even bring his music up once in this discussion! Oh no I can see the responses now...<br><br>"superultramegoo go listen to Transformers 5 for the 50th time.we dont need youre stupidumb comments here !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Balfe has won many awardso tyou cant say any thing bad about him you Jablonsky fnaboy.stop with these demoralizing comments.!A Star Wars score that John Williams himself worked on, however briefly. An interesting time to be a film music fan indeed. <br><br>Hybrid, do you know if Powell was already hired before the director switch on Solo?Happy birthday Mr BalfeI have the same concern, but at the same time I'm really really excited and curious to hear what Williams' sensibilities filtered through Powell's voice will sound like. Those are two of my absolute favorite composers (like, honestly, those two and Hans, top three). I just hope Powell can figure out a way to make it sound natural and organic and not forced/awkward. And maybe if Powell doesn't have to worry about coming up with a main theme it leaves him more time to fine-tune the balance between the two composers' voices (or else write cool secondary material). Giacchino only had four weeks on Rogue One and while he did a decent job, it wasn't as smooth an adaptation as I'd have hoped, especially coming from the composer of Medal of Honor. My expectations are higher for Solo.<br><br>I couldn't give two shits about the movie itself but I'm grateful it exists if only because it will give us this exciting, one-of-a-kind score situation. :)<br><br>Also, there's gonna be a Star Wars score with a page on hans-zimmer.com - who'd ever have thought?

While waiting for "13 Hours", I'm replaying all the Lorne stuff I have on my computer... I didn't really pay attention to this one when it came out, but it's so nice and catchy. Lorne amazes me more and more, and I think the best is yet to come!


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-10 15:57:25
Yep very underrated one... :)

I added a suite... Check this out, it's great... :)


Mike2015-03-26 21:26:34
Very nice.

I gotta say, it's pretty cool that Hans Zimmer's methods allow composers like Lorne to get their own careers kickstarted. asking this honestly, would anyone know about Lorne Balfe if he hadn't worked with Hans all those years?


Leo2015-03-27 10:00:03
Alexandre Desplat doesn't work for RCP, and he's one of the busiest and most well known composers working in Hollywood today.


rockhound2015-03-28 10:27:50
sounds wonderful. nice orchestration and very catchy themes. a lil bit john powell style i would say. i have to say, i prefer the orchestral balfe than the synth balfe, although this music sounds like a very good mix of both.


JamesT2015-03-30 02:42:33
This is a great suite!!! Fun, fun music.

Hybrid: on another note, do you know anything about a soundtrack for Killing Jesus, The Woman In Gold, or A.D.?


Anonymous2015-04-04 20:00:13
I love the first cue that appears in the suite until around 3:20. Is that "Symphony In Oh"?


Mike2015-04-04 20:15:32
Yeah, this score has some very fun music. Though I can't help thinking of Kung Fu Panda 2 with some of it! :P


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-04 20:30:27
Yes it is the first track ! :)


rockhound2015-04-12 19:23:36
i love this score. what a wonderful music. very thematic, excited, playful and emotional. lovely orchestral score by lorne.

Who's Stargate? O:


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-17 08:59:32
Stargate is the band who wrote the songs...

The official movie credit is Music by LB & Stargate... So it's like that on the cover, but there's nothing of theirs in the score... It's all LB...

And yes Lorne is scoring Terminator 5... lol


ggctuk2015-03-26 11:16:27
An interesting turn of events indeed. I wonder what kind of score it will be like. I confess to being completely unaware of his works because I've never watched or played anything he scored. I kind of hope for a synthetic influence, actually, to harken back to the Brad Fiedel days.


Bioscope2015-03-26 15:44:38
I think this could be brilliant. the darkest moments in Transformers 2 featured his contributions, if I am right. He is comfortable with scoring mechanised characters.


Anonymous2015-03-26 22:05:31
right. just like daft punk "scored" tron legacy. lorne balfe will score one of the biggest american franchises ever. he'll have help.


ggctuk2015-03-26 22:15:03
Perhaps it's just me being naive, but I'm also hoping for a proper version of the Terminator theme. Elfman was told not to do it in the last one and Beltrami did do a full version but it only got used in the end credits.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-26 22:33:53
What's that supposed to mean, Anonymous? Lorne Balfe is an actual film composer, not a pop/electronica group - why the skepticism?

Whether he'll have help or not is a separate question. This is RC after all. And there's no problem with that.


ggctuk2015-03-26 23:19:08
I'm told Zimmer will be taking an "executive music producer" credit.


Anonymous2015-03-27 02:30:07
daft punk did not do as much on legacy as they get credited for. zimmer was paid a huge hush hush check for his involvement which was very heavy. i work in the industry so i know it's true. but i am sure this hybrid soldier will tell you otherwise

zimmer will no doubt do most of the work for terminator 5. this makes me happy though. it's how tron legacy turned out to be so awesome


thejok3rrules2015-03-27 06:34:02
Conspiracy theories everywhere, I guess.


Zimson2015-03-27 07:20:45
The fact that you're trying to tell us you have secret insights into RCP no one else has because you "work in the industry" is somewhat ridiculous.
It's true that even composers such as JNH work as ghost writers for big studio or music productions from time to time but that doesn't compensate for a reputable source you obviously don't have.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-27 08:14:22
But the Tron situation is different. I think it's not that surprising to hear that an electronica duo with zero experience in film scoring or orchestral music had a bit of help behind the scenes - honestly, I'd have been more surprised had they NOT had help.

But Balfe has been around for a while and done tons of scores proving his ability in a lot of different situations. I'm not ruling out that someone, even Zimmer, may eventually end up contributing to that Terminator flick with the stupid name (this is 2015 Hollywood film scoring after all - the notion of a solo score is becoming kind of quaint), but there's no reason to treat it with the same skepticism as Tron.


Boldizar2015-03-27 13:49:45
So Genysis dropped Beck?


Anonymous2015-03-27 19:47:21
well thats exactly it edmund. there was no way disney was going to hire to musicians who have never composed for film before for a film of that magniude. same thing happened with star dust and many other films. think ramin djawadi did iron man all by himself? zimmer helped. a lot.

but i think zimmer will end up doing all the heavy lifting for terminator. sure lorne is a successful composer but name one big film hes scored, one as big as terminator. one where he did nearly all the work and had little to no help. none. but i am very curious to hear what becomes of it. nevertheless i am very excited to hear what zimmer and balfe come up with


Macejko2015-03-27 20:12:37
We know pretty much everything there is to know about Iron Man and every other score-wise troubled production that involved RCP, Anonymous. You are bringing sand to Sahara.


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-27 23:15:07
Dude, just because Zimmer has helped out on a handful of tricky situations in the past does NOT guarantee that he's going to do it on Terminator! Why the heck are you so sure of yourself?

And Balfe may not have any solo action tentpoles to his name, but he does have some fairly big animated movies and - more importantly - has worked on practically every Zimmer score of the last decade or so (including some HUGE stuff like Inception, Dark Knight and Pirates...the sort of things this Terminator flick dreams of being as successful as). I have no doubt that the people who decided to hire him are aware of that last fact. He's hardly this untested newcomer you're making him out to be!


thejok3rrules2015-03-28 18:20:27
Lorne has also handled two Assassin's Creed scores, which are major projects, so I'm not surprised he's been given the chance of scoring T5.

Plus, nor the director or the producers of Genesys give a shit about the music in this one. The whole project's only purpose is to make millions with something people know and (used to) love. There's no creativity required for Terminator: Genesys, they could have picked anybody else.

I do wish Lorne Balfe does great. (As I l know he can)


mpolonest1232015-03-28 19:18:49
Genesys is just going to be another big cash grab, milking whatever little value this series has left.

As far as Lorne scoring this, I'm fairly excited. He did a fantastic job on Beyond: Two Souls which people always seem to forget exists. And if memory serves me right, Zimmer also produced that score.


Ds2015-03-28 22:10:53
Lol it looks like absolutely nobody is expecting this movie. I wonder if itīs going to bomb. It looks so bad and uninspired, and its director is responsible for the worst Marvel movie to date... I bet Lorne's music will be the only good thing in this movie.


NotSoAnonymous2015-03-29 01:49:22
@Ds, What Marvel movie are you referring to?


NotSoAnonymous2015-03-29 01:51:54
Nevermind. I thought we were talking about Tim Johnson (Home)


Boldizar 2015-03-29 22:49:04
I was extremely turned off by the idea for more Terminator films... Then I saw the trailer. I actually think Genisys has the potential to be really good. I get the feeling whomever wrote the script actually found an interesting spin on it.


Ds2015-03-29 23:46:37
Well for me itīs just the opposite, itīs when I saw the trailer that I realized how bad it looked like :-p


ggctuk2015-03-30 10:48:36
It can't be any worse than the previous two films. And it does seem to be offering something different to the previous films anyway. The idea seems to be the idea presented in the first film that the future is "one possible future" instead flipped around so that the future is set, but the past is "one possible past". It's an intriguing idea, as are some of the ideas alleged to be what we'll get in the film (I won't spoil those here).

The big discussion here, though, is the score. I'm hoping for a better presentation of the main theme, there's now the chance to properly reprise the T-1000 motif as well. I'm thinking that the approach should be something like an inbetween of Elfman's score for Salvation and Trond Viggo-Melsen's music for the Salvation video game.
