Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.
Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronicsSo I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter egg
I haven't seen the movie yet but I like the score more with each listen. Not a classic Zimmer by any means but still an enjoyable listen at its short running time. Looking forward to the movie as well.This is me or Henry Jackman removed the electronics this year it could be affect to the predator score because I was thinking about the predator score affect him to remove electronics and turned serious & dramatic. That's weird when Henry Jackman used a lot electronics & fun since 2009 to 2017 with his scores.The Henry Jackman I know died out after Civil War and Kingsman 2. After that you can hear faint fizzles of his electronic greatness, but nothing more. <br><br>But hey maybe he just doesn't wanna do that crap anymore...so..eh.Hard to believe this is a follow up to Wreck-It Ralph. Did he remove the electronics from this one too? Sounds too serious and at times dark and dramatic for a kid's movie score. Whatever happened to the fun?Imperial March and Luke's theme are in it!
Widows is actually a pretty interesting score. Not one of Zimmer's best from for an isolated listening experience standpoint, but as a textual score, I was engaged for the most part. The score effectively builds momentum throughout from beginning to end and I could feel the movie just by listening to the music.Tracklist:<br><br>01. Imagine Dragons – Zero (3:32)<br>02. Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Cast – Ralph Breaks the Internet – A Place Called Slaughter Race (3:28)<br>03. Julia Michaels – In This Place (3:21)<br>04. Karol Sevilla – El lugar (3:21)<br>05. Best Friends (2:53)<br>06. Circuit Breaker (2:22)<br>07. Pulling the Plug (1:14)<br>08. On the Rooftop (1:04)<br>09. The Big Idea (1:16)<br>10. The Internet (2:47)<br>11.

Overnight Sensation (2:52)<br>19. Separate Ways (1:04)<br>20. Vanellope’s March (0:46)<br>21. Desperate Measures (1:20)<br>22. Don’t Read the Comments (1:49)<br>23. Growing Pains (1:35)<br>24.

Alan Menken, Phil Johnston, Tom MacDougall – A Place Called Slaughter Race (Instrumental) (3:28)<br>36. Alan Menken, Phil Johnston, Tom MacDougall – In This Place (Instrumental) (3:20)And top gun:maverick....big 4Yeah seriously, he hasn’t done much in a year plus. He’s definitely taken some time off for touring and other things, which may be a great thing for his inspiration... who knows, but I’m guessing the time off has let his brain take a break and maybe he has a ton of new ideas for the big 3 (WW:84, Dark Phoenix, Lion King) coming up in the next year and a half. <br><br>Or maybe I’m just hopeful/wishful thinking lol.Plus, Blue Planet II came out last year. That score is as far from Widows as possible.

Well, I'm finally listening to this score, and while I think it's a lot of fun, there's really no excuse for the lack of instrument variety here. It's so frustrating because I know how amazing Steve's use of woodwinds are when he's given the chance to use them, but for whatever reason, he just refuses to include them in any more of his scores. It's like he thinks they can only be used in animation and fantasy. Which is not the case at all.

This movie would have been perfect to have some Silence of the Lambs/Howard Shore type of aesthetic with brooding woodwinds, along with the really intense string work he already has here. Maybe use a low clarinet for some of the statements of the main theme similarly to the way it was used for the History of the Ring leitmotif from LOTR. Something to vary it up! Maybe more harps instead of just piano sounding instruments for the emotional tracks' underscores?

While I definitely enjoy this score, it's pretty disappointing considering what it could have been. It even vaguely resembles some of Howard Shore and Christopher Young's more Gothic work, why couldn't Steve go all the way with that style?


Olive2018-04-29 03:32:11
Sometimes the end is not valid from an "Silence of the Lambs/Howard Shore" approach. ;)


superultramegaa2018-04-30 01:24:35
What do you mean? That you think a Howard Shore approach wouldn't work, or that it's invalid? Having a hard time wrapping my brain around that sentence.

Just heard the track "I Must Remember". OMG, what a cheap rip-off of The Dark Knights Harvey Dent music. I mean, really??? I like Jablonskys motivation of scoring melodical scores, but sometimes he's copying some stuff so abnormal cheap, just like in Transformers the cue from Zack Hemsey. Why oh why...???

So, just saw two clips for TMNT 2 and his new theme sounds so cool!! Hoping for a soon release of it


Joshua2016-05-20 02:57:17
I concur. Really can't wait to hear what Steve brings here.


Brent2016-05-20 07:01:37
I'm really excited for this! Bring it on, Steve!


Everan2016-05-21 06:31:12
Steve posted an image on fb, with the tracks getting ready for the album release so it should be soon. 10 tracks confirmed so far

The movie was as bad as the trailer suggested, and the score really was average. Really waiting for the big Jablonsky to return...


Brent2015-10-22 19:02:45
Here's hoping he can do something huge with TMNT 2, especially more in the style of the first Transformers. Though, I'm pretty excited. He's got a couple films coming out in the next year or so that have me intrigued. TMNT 2, Deepwater Horizon and possibly 13 Hours. Hybrid, do you know if he'll do Michael's new movie?


...2015-10-22 21:28:24
Yes I agree. Jab has potential. Lately he's just worked on some lame movies:/


David2015-10-22 23:46:39
@Brent, if he didn't do 13 Hours it would be the first time he hasn't collaborated with Bay since 2003 on Bad Boys II! Rabin may have composed, but he did additional music. He even did the 2003 Texas Chainsaw, produced by Bay's production company Platinum Dunes.

@..., a composer doesn't get to work on any movie they want. They are hired. So it's not like Jablonsky is picking and choosing his movies. Besides, he was an infant daughter now. I'm sure he'll take whatever work he can get!


...2015-10-23 00:32:14
@David

Yes of course I know that they get hired. I just hope he'll get a great movie next!


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-23 00:55:23
I don't think the quality of the movie has to reflect on the quality of the score. Look at King Arthur - totally eh movie, one of the most epic things Hans Zimmer has ever done. Or Cutthroat Island by John Debney. Or Godzilla by David Arnold. Or Jupiter Ascending by Giacchino. Or Paycheck by Powell. Hell, Jablonsky's four best scores for me are Steamboy, Transformers, Your Highness and D-War - NONE of which are good movies!

What matters more is that the movie provides a great canvas to paint on. 800-year-old Vin Diesel fighting witches in New York City? There's no excuse for that score not being fun.

I haven't actually heard it yet, mind - just saying on principle. :p


Hybrid Soldier2015-10-23 08:25:16
David you mean since Armageddon, actually... lol


Leo2015-10-24 03:47:39
Edmund, just a question... what you didn't like about Steamboy? Even if it's not as great as Otomo's early movie Akira, it's still loads of fun, whith gorgeous animation (and score). :c


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-24 09:36:30
Steamboy has an incredible score and awesome steampunk awesomeness in every frame, so that goes a long way. I just didn't find the characters all that interesting. Ray is kind of boring (and I don't like Anna Paquin's voice work...she bugged me in Castle in the Sky as well), and Scarlett is just irritating (and yes, I know she's supposed to be, but it doesn't help matters). Some of the visuals are really phenomenal, but the second half of the movie is just action sequence after action sequence after action sequence, and while that does a lot to make Jablonsky's score as fun as it is, watching it gets kind of wearing after a while.

It's not a bad movie (not like those other three), but not a particularly good one either I'd say. I'd put every single thing Hayao Miyazaki's ever done (even Ponyo) over it.


Ds2015-10-24 11:07:02
Edmund, if you consider Transformers as a bad movie, then I think you should absolutely stay away from The Last Witch Hunter. It makes TF look like a masterpiece in every possible way :-p


Brent2015-11-14 01:00:50
So, um, Lorne is doing 13 Hours. What the heck happened? Not a bad choice, just was expecting Jablonsky.


-,-2015-11-14 01:27:21
oh no! please not lorne balfe score 13 hours. one of the worst rc compser!

Not bad work from Jablonsky, of course, there is a better works, but this is a totally guilty pleasure

"At Your Service" is amazing fun. "I Curse You with Life" is almost similar to "Loki's Theme" from Thor2.

As usual with Steve I m looking forward to it, but seeing how uninspired this whole movie looks like, I fear they just asked Steve some generic music in order to "sound like a modern blockbuster". But I hope I m wrong!!! :-)


Brent2015-09-14 21:44:17
Yes! Hopefully it's good...
