Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.
Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before DunkirkHere's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).
@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.@badbu &#128077;<br><br>I honestly don't know how a complete score is going to work. They weren't kidding when they said the music is done like one long track. <br><br>What I understood from a Q&A with Nolan is that they didn't do it the usual way which means there are cues that are cut together / exist as segments. This was done in a different way where to create such cues, they used automation graphs to bring the layers in and out. Very complex. <br><br>One of the reasons why I think this deserves to win so many awards.Well it has officially been nominated. Fingers crossed for the complete score now
yep ahmad! 100% rightThe score is brilliant. It does its purpose very well and it is an essential part of the movie. It's also the most creative of the bunch with the way it was recorded and edited.I'd like Hans to win another Oscar but please, not for this.YES HANS!!! The second Oscar is COMMING! :DMesa is a cue in the film and it has to match with what's happening in the scene. <br><br>Blade Runner is an end credits suite which allows the themes to breathe a little. I think the two versions are identical when it comes to pitch.

"Strength And Honor" is a forerunner to the main theme of King Arthur and also the theme for Transformers!

I was listening to the soundtrack and unwittingly the music sent me to these two other movies. :D

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 9 || 2017-04-23 23:31:09
You know, I'll never understand why "The Spaniard" theme from 'Duduk of the North' was never utilized throughout this score. I'm guessing it was Ridley's decision but considering how beautiful the piece is, it really is a shame.

Same thing with the expanded Zod material in MoS


Mr Tweedy2017-04-23 23:56:30
I recently listened to Duduk of the North and I thought it was an excellent piece of music.
But, you know... a good idea doesn't always make the "perfect" idea. You can't keep everything.
I love how Gladiator turned out: The score in the film has a flavour and a consistency that is pretty unique, a wonderful achievement as it is!


mpolonest123 2017-04-24 01:11:57
Very true.
The film definitely comes first, and Hans' score in context is incredible. It's just a little funny that they kept the 'flavor' of the theme with the Spanish guitars but never state it.


Edmund Meinerts2017-04-24 19:29:27
It's OK, he got to use it for the Kraken in Dead Man's Chest! ;)


Ds2017-04-25 22:00:35
Wow Edmund, I'm impressed... where do you hear this theme in The Kraken? They sound like completely different pieces of music to me :-D


Edmund Meinerts2017-04-25 22:05:38
Sounds to me like the big dramatic Bach-like theme at the very end of the Kraken. Only a slight similarity though :p


mpolonest123 2017-04-25 23:11:10
@Edmund Hahahahaha..... yeah, I've always heard that too. Even the chopping string section in the background of both pieces is vaguely similar.


Mr Tweedy2017-04-26 18:19:45
@mpolonest123
Actually, there's a small hint at the "spaniard" guitar theme after the sequence where he escapes his execution (track "Homecoming" on the More Music album).


mpolonest123 2017-04-26 20:53:22
@MrTweedy
That is true, and you do get the guitars in "Barbarian Horde" (not sure where else though).

I have to admit, as revolutionary as Gladiator was at the time, I think it's one of Zimmer's more overrated scores. Not that I necessarily think it's bad, but IMO both Last Samurai and King Arthur show a much stronger balance of themes and action writing, yet unfortunately were never as recognized by the mainstream the same way Gladiator was.


JBSO992017-04-27 16:52:25
mpolonest123 I totally agree with you. It's not that I don't like Gladiator (is an awesome score) but I think The Last Samurai is one of Zimmer's most underrated scores and for me is one of his bests'

Gladiator II

Maximus is not on the Elysium, and he is not dead!!!

Ridley Scott:"I know how to bring him back... there is a way of bringing him back"

Who will compose the soundtrack? I hope you will participate again Lisa Gerrard.

Strength and honor!


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-13 18:21:21
What a terrible idea. I hope this doesn't happen.


Scorefan2017-03-13 19:49:59
Maybe as a prequel, but it's a risk idea. And it's sure, Zimmer won't come back to score another Ridley film.


METO2017-03-14 23:40:04
Why come Zimmer not back to compose a ridley film?


Scorefan2017-03-16 03:26:17
Because he said he wouldn't come back for another ridley film. It was Kingdom of heaven was initially for Zimmer and Madagascar for Harry. In the middle of time, they changed films. Zimmer said it was exhausting working on Gladiator and like Hybrid said before, it was a mess of Matchstick men. So, that's the reason.


METO2017-03-16 03:30:57
But I find a pity. That the work on gladiator was not easy I knew. But is nothing new in the film industry. Ridley Scott and Hans Zimmer have been a great team for many years.


Mike2017-03-16 04:50:42
If Hans won't do it ..... then BALFE please !


isildur2017-03-16 13:56:44
If not Hans, Mancina should do it.


Mike (Old Timer Mike)2017-03-16 20:05:35
I think Harry Gregson-Williams should do it, if Hans can't be convinced. (Well, actually, my first choice would be, don't make a sequel ;] ). But if anyone works on the film, Hans would be my first choice.


Ds2017-03-16 22:04:09
If this happens (and I really, really hope it doesn't), Jed Kurzel will probably be hired, and then he'll be replaced by an even less known composer in the middle of production. That's how it works with Ridley these days, it seems...


Mike (Old Timer Mike)2017-03-16 22:11:07
@Ds, do we really think Ridley - and the studio - would take such a chance? Gladiator's score was a massive hit back in the day. I can't imagine they wouldn't try to capitalize on its success, and on Hans' even greater popularity now.


asd2017-03-16 22:39:41
if they do a sequel, then they should hire Klaus Badelt. He scored a lot with Hans on Gladiator. And please not Balfe again. He's a good score-filler, but not great in finding themes and melodies.


Mike 2017-03-17 00:15:27
Balfe can't find themes or melodies ????? Have you not hear Beyond, AC3 or Home ????? Full of great themes


Timmusic 2017-03-17 01:54:21
Balfe's theme,s in The Bible are amazing .He could easier do it I think

God, Spotify is so messed up! It credits all the orchestrators as the composers of the score. Hans is not even mentioned.


Zimson2014-05-19 21:30:25
Same with Thin Red Line btw. It's credited to Gavin Greenaway.
I already contacted Spotify and they responded that they would take care of that problem, but didn't do anything about it, lol. I was told that they get all their information from the publishers.

I just watched the featurette about the music on the Gladiator blu-ray, it was very, very interesting and... my God, Hans looked so young, I couldn't believe my eyes.

Watch this interview, then watch the interviews he gave about Man Of Steel last year, it's a completely different world!

"Elysium (2:41)
Lisa Gerrard, Klaus Badelt"

Does that mean Now We Are Free is actually from Badelt?


Mike2013-12-18 18:59:52
Hans and Badelt, I think. Because look, "Elysium" lists Badelt only, while "Now We Are Free" lists Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt. I think with Now We Are Free, Zimmer took what Badelt did in Elysium and used it.


Zimson2013-12-18 19:19:59
Yeah but basically it would be Badelt's theme then, like "He's a Pirate" is Zimmer's theme.


Hybrid Soldier2013-12-18 19:28:56
Klaus wrote the early version of Now We Are Free with Lisa, that was dropped...


Then for the final version there's Hans theme used...


Zimson2013-12-18 19:45:09
I know, the famous "Daa Da Da Daam" is by Hans. But I never knew that the rest of the track is actually Badelt's work.

My dear Mr. Tweedy, I'm waiting for your exposé regarding that "synth" matter... ;)

:P


ph fan2011-08-18 19:07:15
Damn Badelt has some nice MI2 tracks! Not sure where most of them lie within the film though... sound mostly like suites or alternates.


Mr Tweedy2011-08-18 19:30:01
Dear Hybrid, here is my "exposé" ! =)

The film version of Air Battle (the "orchestral version") is such a mess. The recording session of this track was pure chaos : some instruments are playing wrong notes (trumpets !), the cue sounds very weak (small orchestra) and especially rushed (last minute change ?).

I'm glad Klaus put his original synth mock up on his website instead of the film version... of course it's not exactly what you hear in the movie, but at least these are (nearly) the same notes, it has some raw power with Zimmer's trademark orchestral samples, the "waltz part" which was unreleased until now, is eventually available... I don't see any reason to complain here !

@Smith
I think Hybrid is doing his fair part of contribution to the Zimmer fan community (Inception bonus tracks, anyone?). Finding some new source of music doesn't mean claiming it to everybody here within the next few minutes... especially when you know that most people here are gonna make bootleg CDs out of these new cues and share them on forums, not even buying Zimmer CDs and so on...

This is one of Zimmer's greatest works. Even though he may have copied Holst's The Planets for some of the cues, this soundtrack cannot be topped and the track "Honor Him" is one the greatest themes to ever come out of Hans' mind.

Yeah apparently someone likes Zimmer and Co. enough to use their music as temp music for the deleted scenes. I also heard some John Powell from what I think was from The Bourne Identity or Supremacy.

Hybrid, couple of things.

1.) I like that each track is listed as to who did what, so thank you.
2.) Wikipedia states (I take info from wiki with a grain of salt, as anyone with a grudge against Hans could have added it) that Hans was sued beacuse "the music for many of the battle scenes has been noted as similar to Gustav Holst's 'Mars: The Bringer of War', and in June 2006, the Holst Foundation sued Hans Zimmer for allegedly copying the late Gustav Holst's work.' Is this true?
3.) Where is the COMPLETE score for Gladiator? There is a 3-disc with 21 tracks on each disc. I have it, but I'm just wondering why it's not on the site. I see it everywhere, literally.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-18 00:00:00
Yeah, they sued...

Though, to me, it was a bit ridiculous... Of course the Gladiator Waltz is inspired by Holst's Mars, but there's definitely no plagiarism. I mean, if THIS is plagiarism, then a million of film score composers, the Horners, Williams, JNHs or Poledouris should have been sued for ripping classical music... :P


And as for that bootleg... Well, I know how it's made... But I think there are enough fake Gladiator complete scores on this site... :P

I only add real things... :P
