Single from Ben's score for The Invisible Man was released and I'm pleasantly surprised by it. https://youtu.be/f-aH9kDKVBYI’ve been coming back to “But I Will Always Be Faster” and “Sonic The Hedgehog” repeatedly, I’m genuinely impressed by how strong the writing is in both cues. Honestly it doesn’t sound like Holkenborg (mixing aside).Hi there,<br><br>i have seen that the Score (Soundtrack) will be released on 27th of march. But i would like to know somthing maybe any of you knows:<br><br>Will the Song itself be released physical as a Single CD? Or will it be available just for download?<br>Because if there will be no CD, it would be the first James Bond Song which is not released as a Single CD.Rejected scores have gotten official releases before, such as Timeline by Jerry Goldsmith. So even if the Snyder Cut never gets released, I'd hope Junkie could potentially still work out a deal to get his original score out there. Keeping my fingers crossed.No Time to Die coming by Decca 27th March<br><br>https:// www.udiscovermusic.com/news/hans-zimmer-no- time-to-die-soundtrack/?fbclid=IwAR1UtjXatRpCQyXWJ9f7YYfT9Eb k5jy4d7XnlS6XzX4vTiOTxFfvQ0PWgaI
It all depends on whether WB releases the Snyder Cut OR no I don't even want to think about the other case & with the way things are going now it looks like we'll definitely get Zack Snyder's Justice League if not today then tomorrow and only then your question will have any meaning.<br>TL;DR the score will only happen after WB #ReleaseTheSnyderCutHybrid, Oscar Senen and Joan Martorell orchestrate the score ?Budapest, please :(Same question here, is concert in Poland even concidered to occur?if the link doesn't work for some reason, the song is called Cliffhanger Sky High on youtube
Hi All, sorry it took so long to upload, My friend helped me set up a youtube channel to upload tracks to. I am very inspired by the classic Zimmer Scores of the 90's. I envisioned A climactic rescue aboard A speeding train for this particular cue.<br>https://youtu.be/4WyMIcpqMRk <br>I avoided bringing up the TF films in this thread until AFTER you dragged them into it.<br>===============<br><br>No one dragged anything. <br><br>I briefly mentioned that franchise, among many other things you conveniently ignored (you do that a lot), to prove a simple point: that a director doesn't get to make 5 movies from the same franchise if people aren't enjoying his work. Simple as that. I never talked about the "quality" of each of those movies. Go see the comment again.<br><br>YOU picked up on this and started talking obsessively about the TF. <br><br><br>==============<br>Going after every person that doesn't like Bay and trying to obsessively "debunk" them is psychotic, yes. <br>==============<br><br>Look at your first comment here, pal. Look at it good! Snarky, dismissive, almost trollish, and with a clear intention to provoke people. Let me quote it: "Another day, another Bay film that doesn't know what fun is." <br><br>I only "go after" people who can't share their opinions in a respectful, mature way. There are a lot of comments here I disagreed with. But I never confronted those people. Why? Because they know how to properly share an opinion. <br><br>I only go after people who provoke, make fun of someone/something and troll. I've never "attacked" a person who didn't deserve that kind of response. My post history here speaks for itself. <br><br><br>===================<br>And constantly referring to other people's opinions and whinging about the box office doesn't make you objective, especially with how self-contradictory the latter has been.<br>===================<br><br>Nope. Not even close. <br><br>You're just bitter that I'm using quotes from proven, talented people like Spielberg who support Bay. What quotes can your side use? Just quotes from knucklehead film bloggers and critics who hate half of what Hollywood makes. <br><br>No one with an actual integrity and knowledge of the film business can dismiss what Bay has accomplished. You may not like his stuff, but to completely dismiss him as a filmmaker is.......moronic. Truth is, it's only small fries on the internet who are angry that their favorite mid-level directors aren't as big and successful as Bay.<br><br>That's really the bottom line. <br><br>Speaking of that, who is YOUR favorite filmmaker? Go ahead, share it with us. Let's see who is that PERFECT filmmaker you drool over.<br><br>I'm really curious.<br><br>==============<br>By your own "objective" reasoning, this would make them his worst films. But you don't acknowledge that, because you don't actually care about objectivity.<br>==============<br><br>Huh??<br><br>When did I said that box office success or box office failure means that a movie is good or bad?? I never that. So if you don't mind, stop putting words in my mouth.<br><br>Thank you. <br><br><br>==================<br>You care about faking it when it suits you, and chucking it when it doesn't<br>==================<br><br><br>Kinda ironic coming from the person who ignored the majority of the stuff I said here. Careful cherry-picking, convenient ignoring of stuff, and putting words in my mouth is apparently what you like to do. <br><br><br>================<br>What do you mean "next time?" Your first reply here was calling my opinion a joke.<br>================<br><br>Uhhhh, that's because it IS a joke. Because it is not true and because it was posted with the clear intention to provoke. You are the Negative Nancy here, my friend. Not me. Jesus Christ, even your nickname tells people exactly what they can expect from you......"Cynical Makooti". <br><br><br>====================<br>I didn't insult you for anything other than lying to win an argument<br>====================<br><br>Oh, that's true....................you're certainly not winning this argument. I mean, that's obvious. <br><br>And..... I never posted a lie. Just because "your sources" claim something different doesn't mean it's the truth. Pacific Rim wasn't a success - considering the huge expactations and the fact that the movie's budget is $200 freakin' million - and they DID try to start a franchise with 300. They failed. <br><br><br>================<br>Your lack of self-awareness is astounding.<br>================<br><br>That's rich. Coming from the guy who calls himself "Cynical Makooti". The guy who now plays the victim, even though he was the one who started this with a childish, trollish comment. <br><br>Look at my first reply to you. I was jokingly mimicking your style. Intentionally. Then you tried to be a smartass with your next reply. But EVEN THEN, I responded in a normal way with my second post. After that........you unleashed your true self. <br><br>And now, you're acting like the victim: "Poor me, being attacked by a crazy Bay fan!" <br><br>So please, don't talk about self-awareness. It ain't working.<br><br><br><br>================<br>Pacific Rim was a domestic bomb that turned things around with its international box office.<br>================<br><br>Haha, maybe you should read more Forbes. Take a look at what they said about the entire (already failed) Pac Rim universe. Read a bit more on how much money the studio lost from the first flick and why they actually went with a sequel. It ain't because the first one was a beloved hit. <br><br><br>=======<br>The Last Knight lost about $100M according to Paramount themselves. That doesn't sound like an international success to me.<br>=======<br><br>Okay, I believe you. Now, would you please share the link to that statement from Paramount. <br><br>Thank you. <br><br><br>=============<br>Maybe it does to you, but I can't speak for that little fantasy world you seem to be living in right now.<br>=============<br><br>Hey, it's certainly a better and more reasonable place than your world. A world where you completely dismiss and ignore the accomplishments of one of the biggest filmmakers out there.<br><br>What's your next claim? <br><br>That Donnie Trump is the best President in history?<br><br><br>Have a nice day!Do any of you think that Junkie's Justice League score will ever get released or leaked? I was really excited to hear how Junkie planned on developing the themes used in the prior DCEU movies. Especially the Batman themes from BVS. It's a damn shame how WB handled that film."Why do Bay naysayers pretend that Bay only directs TF movies? It's very interesting......

John Powell is doing open messaging on Facebook for another hour or so. (He had to clarify - send him a message on his page, don't comment on his post. And no, he can't say a word about Han Solo....I already asked a general question. No surprise. :P)

The official Star Wars website just confirmed that John Powell will score the untitled Han Solo movie! Since the day Ron Howard took over, I've anticipated Hans Zimmer to do it but John Powell is definitely next to him on the list. What an exciting news!


Anton2017-07-26 21:41:29
What shame Balfe didn't get the opportunity especially after Genius


Macejko2017-07-26 21:42:34
Edmund, be sure to tell us you're OK after all those cumshots.


Vivien2017-07-26 23:00:01
Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !


...2017-07-26 23:24:28
This is great news! I really wanted Hans to do this but if not him then Powell is a great choice which I am sure Hans somehow was involved in.

I just hope this doesn't mean that Hans and Ron Howard won't work together in the future.


Hybrid Soldier2017-07-26 23:57:21
No way !

Hans was dining with Ron like 3 days before Ron was announced as director. But first, Powell was hired before Ron was in, and second I doubt Hans had 0,001 % interest in it, and probably rather pushed Ron towards JP !


vced2017-07-27 00:24:28
"Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !"

John Powell isn't Hans Zimmer.

When has Zimmer (or Balfe for that matter) ever written a score that remotely sounds like Star Wars - who seriously thought that was going to happen LOL.

Much as I like Hans, this is a job for educated composers.



Vivien2017-07-27 00:46:09
It's RCP's style and it's pretty much different of William's LOL


Andrew 2017-07-27 01:09:20
Vced - balfes score to Home for example clearly shows he can write music like that .


James D.2017-07-27 01:34:57
Powell's reception as composer of the new SW has been excellently welcomed! Wonderful!

------------------------------------------------------[

@Andrew

Let's face it: SW is still a very distant star for Balfe. Not just for him, for many others. Even John Powell. Achieving that score is an event in his career.


Brent2017-07-27 07:59:41
@ James D

I don't disagree that Star Wars is the tip-of-the-iceberg when it comes to film music projects. However, you have to remember Powell has been in the game far longer than Giacchino has. I don't believe it has to do with how long you've been in the business, but if you're "sound" can carry the movie.


isildur2017-07-27 08:09:24
LOL @Macejko. I think Edmund is completely exhausted now. It'll take two to three days regain all the fluids he lost.


FORZA2017-07-27 20:37:18
Well this is... fuck YES


James2017-07-27 20:42:46
Yes. I know. But Giacchino has always worked with the Disney.John, on the other hand, is his equivalent in the Blue Sky and Dreamworks.

I assume Dario Marionelli wrote those two songs he's credited for?


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-30 16:42:12
Margeson arranged them. He started working with Dario, then JP took over scoring. Matthew worked on many songs that didn't all end up in the film.


Edmund Meinerts2016-07-30 22:26:21
Well, I can't pretend it doesn't hurt a tiny bit to see that my favorite cue of 2015 ("A Boy Who Could Fly") isn't by Powell and Powell alone. But at the same time, I was kind of afraid it would be much worse considering time was probably pretty short on this score. If you look at it that way it's quite impressive just how little help Powell gets. And I imagine an additional composer on a Powell score is much closer to being just an orchestrator/arranger than, say, an additional composer on a Zimmer score (but that could just be my bias shining through...).

Hybrid, do you have details for any other Powell scores since 2010? Other than KFP2 (and Ice Age 4 now since you put up the complete score page) we know hardly anything about that period of his career.


Hybrid Soldier2016-07-30 22:40:48
Yes it's pretty much detailed, I'm catching up with all this, takes quite some time to handle each score lol...

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 5 || 2016-03-08 23:08:13
Wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured his most recent score would do.

John Powell's wife, Melinda Lerner, has died at age 41.

slipped isc. com/ 2016/03/ the-composers-wife -died-30-minutes-after-world -premiere/

What awful news. If she's been ill for a while (and it kind of sounds like it), that would put his comments recently about "spending more time with my son/family" in a very different light indeed.

Sad news. My thoughts go to John & his son.

Very sad news. She took a picture for me with John Powell at the Pandamonium event in Northampton uk. She even passed my her Chinese hat to put on for the picture in which John gave her a very unimpressed (in a playful way) look. She was Very chirpy and smiley. My thoughts go to him his son and the family.

I felt like the Album started out a little bit slow, but by the time I got to track 16 (A Warrior's Fate), I was obsessed. I love the complexity of John Powell's music.
John Powell, Howard Shore, and John Williams are the only composers I can listen to over and over without getting bored. I listened to the How to train your Dragon 2 Soundtrack every other day for a whole year after it came out and I never got sick of it.


Powell Lover #12016-02-15 21:08:16
I so agree


Edmund Meinerts2016-02-16 10:09:07
Tracks 16-18 are, in my opinion, the best chunk of film music anybody wrote in 2015 (including John Williams). I've played those three tracks over and over again like nothing else. I agree the rest of the score doesn't quite hold up to it but there are some gems in there, I like the unique flair in "Kidnapped/Galleon Dog Fight" for example.


Ds2016-02-16 10:18:23
I agree, these 3 tracks (plus "Kidnapped - Galleon Dog Fight") are incredible. It's funny, "Pan", "The Martian" and "Steve Jobs" all came out pretty much at the same time and are probably my 3 favorite scores of 2015, still listen to those frequently.


Anonymous2016-02-17 19:20:53
I remember when I saw the trailer for Pan, and I said to my sister, 'boy, wouldn't it be great if John Powell could do the Soundtrack for that?'
So I checked on Wikipedia, and it said someone else was doing it.
A week later, while looking for John Powell Soundtracks on Amazon, i see Pan listed. I almost flipped.
I bought the Soundtrack the day it came out and loved every second of it. My favorite theme is the Fairy Kingdom Theme heard in 'A Warriors Fate'

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 7 || 2015-10-05 10:06:03
An excellent score indeed! A little chaotic and "overstuffed" at times, but I'll always take a score that's too complicated over one that's too simplistic, and I just love how much stuff Powell throws at you. "Flying Ship Fight" and "A Boy Who Could Fly" are some of the best action music of the year.


DeerLord2015-10-07 14:33:15
I agree. You don't find such scores a lot anymore these days.

I has it all: epic, fun, chaotic, quiet, bombastic, cover song gone cinematic, great diverse instrumentation, themes, ...

Aaaah. I am getting nostalgic here. How I miss the early 2000s.

This one can join my 'Best adventure score' playlist joining the likes of How To Train Your Dragon, Lair, Outcast, Killzone 2, Cutthroat Island, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, LOTR, Hobbit, ...


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-10 14:47:48
The more I listen to this one the more I like it. Powell always puts so much into his scores that you have to go over it multiple times and you'll still be catching things you didn't notice before. I think "A Boy Who Could Fly" might be my favorite cue of the year, period. Although if there was a longer version of "Neverland Ahoy!", I'd say that. Those 40 seconds between 1:15 and 1:55 are so beautiful, and so short... :/


Ds2015-10-10 21:24:24
Agree with Edmund, I listened only once and it was pretty heavy to digest... I will see the movie when it is released and then give the score a few more chances to grow on me. And I m 100% sure it will, in Powell I trust!!


Ds2015-10-20 22:13:01
I just saw the movie and now I am forced to recognize that this is an absolutely exquisite score. A pleasure from start to finish. Combined with Joe Wright's masterful visuals, it felt like heaven. Powell and Wright are amongst the most talented artists working in Hollywood, it's a shame the movie flopped so hard, it felt refreshing in so many ways. But yeah, probably too artsy for kids, too crazy for cynic grown ups... Sad, but at least it got made! :-)


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-20 22:59:58
I'm on the fence about whether to see the movie or not. It looks like a bit of a mess and hasn't gotten great reviews, but I want to support Powell and any big adventure movie in general that feels a bit different, which this does. I can kind of see it falling into the same category of unsuccessful adventure movies that didn't deserve to do as badly as they did and which have great scores, along with Lone Ranger and John Carter. Do you recommend it, Ds?

Also, I'm curious to know whether there is much score in the movie that didn't make the album. With an 111-minute running time and 60 minutes of score (plus ten or so of songs), it feels as though there could be...


Ds2015-10-21 13:21:14
Edmund, I didn't know the album release well enough to detect unreleased material in the movie. I think the main cues are all there, all the best moments I noticed during the movie are definitely present. In particular, "Flying Ship Fight" and "A Boy Who Could Fly" are masterfully used in the movie. Also, the music playing all over the end credits piece is utterly fantastic, and I think that one is not on the album (but I may be wrong).

I would definitely recommend it, yeah. It's a big, generous adventure movie. It's like a kid's dream, it's crazy and all over the place but it feels fresh, natural. It felt like the labour of authentic artists, rather than producers trying to get easy cash.

If you like Joe Wright's visual marvels, go see it because his signature style is all over the film. Every scene is wonderfully shot, a delight for the eyes. If you like John Powell's music (I know you do), go see it because his score is prominent throughout the whole movie and sounds amazing in a theatre. If you like adventure movies with a big heart, which require a lack of cynicism from their audience, go see it. If you're more attracted by modern sci-fi or superhero movies, maybe you should avoid it.

Ooh. I'm curious now about that end credits piece. I feel like the one thing missing from the Pan score is a cue that really just lets the themes breathe - was it anything like that? If so, it's criminal they left it off the album (who needs Lily Allen anyway?).

Maybe I really will go see this, after The Martian.

Great score, I'm not dissapointed. :D

Ooh, track times. Take out the songs (Blitzkrieg Bop...bleurgh) and it's still over an hour of score! An overture! And track 17 looks like it could be a particular treat... :)

The songs are arranged by Matthew Margeson (and one with John Powell)... ;)

Dang it, that means I'll actually have to listen to them. D:

Watertower has this listed for October 2nd, not 9th. I wonder if the former date is tentative.

The teaser poster with the Jolly Roger flying above London looked better.
