I mean sure, but I can't think of many Giacchino scores that actually match that description. The Star Trek reboot scores for example, where he has a (pretty good) main theme that he plays the same way roughly sixteen thousand times over and over again. :pFor me, a theme is a distinguishable motif or piece of music that is related to a specific location, event or most commonly character, and that the viewer notices as such. If your score contains 20 themes that are never repeated in a similar form and are so uncharacteristic that they all sound the same, I'm just calling that orchestra noise. And I don't see any appeal in that kind of scoring...Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649
I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...<br>That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.BOOKLET CREDITS (From The Album):<br><br>Score Composed, Produced And Mixed By<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Additional Music By<br>ALJOSCHA CHRISTENHUB<br>ANTONIO DI IORIO<br><br>Orchestra Conducted By<br>JOHN ASHTON THOMAS<br><br>Technical Score Engineer<br>ALEX RUGER<br><br>Additional Programming By<br>EMILY RICE<br>JACOPO TRIFONE<br><br>Music Editor<br>SIMON CHANGER<br><br>Assistant Music Editors<br>BEN SMITHERS<br>ARABELLA WINTER<br><br>Music Consultant<br>BOB BADAMI<br><br>Score Orchestrated And Copied By<br>JONATHAN BEARD<br>EDWARD TRYBEK<br>HENRI WILKINSON<br>TOM HOLKENBORG<br><br>Librarian<br>JILL STREATER<br><br>Orchestra Contractors<br>ISOBEL GRIFFITHS<br>SUSSIE GILLIS<br><br>Orchestral Recording Engineer And Mixer<br>NICK WOLLAGE<br><br>Orchestra Recorded At<br>AIR STUDIO<br><br>Air Studios Managers<br>ALISON BURTON<br>CHARLOTTE MATTHEWS<br>LUCY MATTHEWS<br><br>Music Production Services<br>MICHIEL GROENEVELD<br><br>Agent<br>AMOS NEWMAN<br><br>Legal Representation<br>DAVID ALTSCHUL<br><br>Music Recorded <br>6-7 January 2018<br>At<br>AIR STUDIOS, London<br><br>Score Published By<br>UNITED LION MUSIC, INC.

wtf is this? did zimmer score a porno?why hybrid when lorne himself confirmed it? <.<@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?
Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent news

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.
Waiting to hear the whole album

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!!! :-)
