"Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !"<br><br>John Powell isn't Hans Zimmer. <br><br>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.<br><br>Much as I like Hans, this is a job for educated composers.<br><br>No way !<br><br>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 !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. <br><br>I just hope this doesn't mean that Hans and Ron Howard won't work together in the future.Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !Edmund, be sure to tell us you're OK after all those cumshots.
What shame Balfe didn't get the opportunity especially after GeniusThe 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!Ich habe die show gestern abends mit meinem sohn im Radio City Music Hall gesehen.  Was kann man da sagen - die show war FANTASTISCH.  Die band, das Orchester, und die Saenger waren nicht zu fassen.  Die show war 3 stunden lang - genau richtig in laenge.  Und als ein Muenchner Yid, der schon 50 jahre in NY wohnt, muss ich sagen das es wirklich klasse ist das ein andere Deutscher Yid so ein konzert, das die ganze welt liebt, in New York macht und uns d<br><br>amit geehrt hat.  Sei mir gesund Hansi - bitte komm nach NY schnell zurueck.Who wrote the music in "The Medallion Calls"?Backdraft -> Gladiator -> POTC...everything is similar
Supermarine/Dunkrik "theme".<br><br>Think back to Pirates 2. The scene where Jack thinks he has the Heart of Davey Jones and he's on the ship getting the hell out of there. Suddenly, Davey Jones ship rises up from the water to block them...You hear a rising tune....<br><br>It's the exact same tune used for Supermarine/Dunkirk...<br><br>Meh.Now i've seen episode 2 I have to say indeed that the music was much better than in the previous one. Especially in the scene with Arya and the wolfs, Arya heading to Winterfell and when Jon Snow departed to Dragonstone. Hooefully we will get a new soundtrack album by the end of August, beginning of September.When I say "released" that doesn't necessarily mean in a...legal senseDon't be so defensive lol, I know that. I was simply asking a question.The Academy is composed of 60+ year old bourgeois. They can't differeniate between score and songs on disney soundtracks and they'll often just vote for the score of the movie they liked best. Studios also tried to bribe academy members in the past. Big award season movies even have an "Oscar budget".<br>So who cares what they think? I'd rather look forward to the world soundtrack awards.
I hope that recording sessions will be released...i'm little disappointed, that some tracks are missing and some of them sounds very differently than in the movie..Never said they will be released, I said might.Oh great, there's another David! :/<br><br>It's funny you and Everan (over on the TF5 page) think the complete scores for these films will be getting "released"! :POH MY GOD!!! the movie was AMAZING!!! But so many Cues are missing :((((Hans... He didn't just write the demo...

Rupert Gregson-Williams makes a Great score for this movie.

This Score Is Like other War Films Like 13 Hours Music By Lorne Balfe &
Lone Survivor By Explosions In The Sky & Steve Jablonsky

Very good suite, very doog job from Rupert. The beginning of the suite sounds like Kingdom of heavne from his brtoher Harry.


psycosid072016-11-30 02:25:31
Yeah, you're right. Debney's complete score was rejected and replaced by Rupert Gregson-Williams for the final cut.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-12 22:02:11
Just saw the film, definitely one of my top Oscar contenders for this year. Great direction, acting, cinematography, etc.

As for the score, Rupert hit it out of the ballpark. The first half reminded me of a bluegrass "Winters Tale" while the second definitely had that modern action scoring we are all accustomed with. Only major complaint is some of the dissonant sections during the war scenes but, given the context, it's understandable.

(And 2:00 in Climbing for a Kiss, holy shit that's beautiful)

Rupert Gregson-Williams Has Done An Great And Awsome Score Again Hacksaw Ridge I Can Wait To See This Movie

What's the point of the first part of your post? Most of that information is up there already. Also, Watch Your Capitals.

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-09 22:22:56
That is a hell of a beautiful movie. Very powerful, very emotional, and intense as hell. Actors performances are unbelievably good as well. Needless to say, Rupert's score plays a big role in the movie, especially towards the end. A job nicely done by all involved, I sure hope to see this movie at least nominated for the Oscars.

Morgan Joylighter reply Replies: 3 || 2016-11-04 08:13:57
Best war movie...possibly best war movie score of all time...

I just saw this in the cinema last night and I was totally blown away by both movie and score. Rupert has really re-invented himself this year and it seems like Mel Gibson has too.


will2016-11-08 09:32:08
best war movie score of all time? while i really enjoy ruperts work, but wow that is a bit too much don't you think? :D


Brent2016-11-08 10:27:25
"Best war score of all time" may be a stretch, but I really do quite like this. I'm SO SO happy with what Rupert has produced this year. Portions of Tarzan are good, this score (and film) are amazing and The Crown is absolutely sublime. Can't wait for Wonder Woman!


Saurabh2016-11-08 17:38:56
I won't say Rupert has reinvented himself. His sound is more closely associated with the 90s RCP sound. While Tarzan seemed pedestrian for me, Hacksaw Ridge has a great blend of that power anthem sound and some good themes.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-07 19:23:30
Wow, the main theme as heard in the first two tracks is reeeeeeally similar to his brother's "Burning the Past" from Kingdom of Heaven. Did Mel phone up the wrong Gregson-Williams? :P

I mostly like the score, but it's interesting that you can basically divide it into three parts: first pretty but very low-key drama writing kind of a la Winter's Tale (it's been compared to Thomas Newman and James Horner but that's a big stretch IMO), then modern themeless drum-heavy RC action and suspense music of the kind I don't like so much ("Japanese Retake the Ridge" could easily be from a Junkie XL score, which is not a compliment), and finally some good old thematic power-anthem-type emotional action scoring of the kind I do like very much. The first part isn't especially memorable and I could do without the middle part entirely, but otherwise I really enjoy this. It has a narrative and is definitely a step up from Tarzan, although I still personally prefer RGW's lighter efforts like Bee Movie and Bedtime Stories.

Crisp Rat reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-05 06:03:02
Rupert really blew me away with this one! I was not expecting this gem of a score at all, especially in light of some his recent scores. I've been thinking a lot about this score, and what makes it so memorable. What sets this apart from his other scores, or really any other film score out there? And I believe the answer is this: strong, memorable themes, displayed in a way that really allows the music to move you. Because if music fails to move you, then what is it's purpose in any kind of media? Memorable emotions create memorable scores. And that, I think, is why scores like Inferno or BvS fall flat compared to the old Zimmer. Screechy sound design will never create an emotional response.
Check out this video that I found to be interesting and insightful:

So apparently Rupert is also going to score Wonder Woman, while still using Zimmer's WW theme from BvS. Can't wait!

Frank reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-04 10:01:35
This score is easily the best score of Rupert's whole career thus far and he finished it with less than a month. I hope he can maintain such level for Wonder Woman.

isildur2016-10-01 18:22:17
It really does. Film has really amazing reviews. So, along with the film it seems there is a chance for a nomination for the score too. Just like they nominated Henry's score for Capt. Philips (which by the way wasn't that good a score)


Dragonseeker2016-10-01 19:52:03
Captain Phillips nomination was a joke. But this sounds better in every way.


MrZimmerFan2016-10-01 21:33:38
There is no nomination for Jackman's Cap Phillips in the Oscars

Wasn't John Debney scoring this?


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-23 23:03:30
Yes and he was kicked out !


Ds2016-09-23 23:29:30
Do you have more info on that, Hybrid? Like, was it Mel? Or the studio?


Brent2016-09-24 01:18:08
Part of me wishes it was still Debney as his previous effort with Mel resulted in one of the best scores I've heard, but I'm excited to hear what Rupert does here.


mpolonest1232016-09-24 01:25:12
Outside of Winter's Tale (which is severely underrated imo) nothing RGW has scored has stood out to me. I would've loved to see someone like Lorne Balfe take this type of project on.

Still, fingers crossed for Rupert to deliver something good. :-)


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-24 13:33:58
mpolonest123, you should check out Bedtime Stories and Bee Movie (the latter admittedly with a bit of behind-the-curtain help from Hans himself). Both are really fun scores, albeit a lot lighter than what this movie calls for. RGW is quite talented, actually, a lot better than what the fairly bland Tarzan would have you believe.


mpolonest1232016-09-24 14:59:47
I'll definitely take a listen to both of those. I had heard Bee Movie a few years back but it never stuck with me. Maybe it's time to revisit it :-)


Paul2016-09-24 18:51:59
Wow... Varese Sarabande still suck at artworks. Especially fonts... Ugh...

I'm fine with Rupert scoring this one, but I have the same question as Ds - why Debney was 'kicked out'?


Meta2016-09-25 03:39:17
Maybe the whole "Mel is an Anti-Semite" flared up...Who knows. I thought those two were tight after Passion of the Christ.


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-25 11:15:59
I have no idea why Debney was debarked...

Maybe he even left himself, who knows ! Actually I don't care lol...
