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.

This MusIc From The 5th Wave Is Better With Orchestral +Electronic Music +Guitar=A Good,Better And Interesting Soundtrack By Henry Jackman

With Andrew Kawczynski & Alex Belcher They Are Good Additional Music


Edmund Meinerts2016-07-22 00:19:46
Seriously, are these comments randomly generated? What's the point of this?

Also, this score was pretty dreadful.


Macejko2016-07-22 11:39:10
Agreed. Probably the worst Jackman yet.

Little "who did what"...


Edmund Meinerts2016-05-01 12:42:33
Well, none of them did anything particularly worthwhile... :p

But thanks. :)

Just got back from a press screening of this film. Score is very bland, sadly - no themes to speak of, a lot of generic string ostinato + synth percussion action stuff that sounds like leftovers from every Jackman action score from X-Men: First Class onwards. The "Tsunami" cue had an appropriately swirling, chaotic energy to it though, that one should be not bad.

I suppose nothing else was expected for this concept. But his recent project choices seem somewhat strange. I expected to see him for Goosebumps and Zootopia but instead he took this one here and some video game project which will likely call for nothing different than what he did here. Are these easy pays, fun, or the man simply doesn't like flicks that call for thematic orchestral scores?


Mario2016-01-13 08:04:01
Was the movie boring? Did it have good pacing to it? Did it feel long? Was there an open end to it, or did it feel like a standalone movie?


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-13 11:25:24
The movie is OK. It's well under two hours so it's never boring and paced fairly well. But it definitely doesn't feel like a complete story. Even though it's based on the one book, it has the feeling of one of those "part 1" movies (or a Hobbit movie) where there's absolutely no effort to make the individual films feel like they can stand on their own. That's what I always appreciated about the Harry Potter books and films (except the last two) - they felt like individual stories that still added up to a greater whole. That's become a lost art in franchises (just look at the Marvel movies where each one feels like a full length trailer for the next one).

Other than that it's entertaining enough if you like that sort of thing. To put it next to the other YA apocalyptic stuff, I liked it a bit more than Divergent and Maze Runner, a bit less than Hunger Games.

Yeah, kind of reminds me of how boring and monotonous Interstellar sounded.
