Probably.Are there any other tracks in the album which were composed by Balfe? Just wondering...I assumed you meant the forums themselves. I knew composer websites were a way to find their credits, I just didn't think to do it for this score yet for some reason.See the guys uotop listed next to jablonsky? click their names and go to their websites. You have to do the work. But there they are. Right on this site.^ Have to agree with you there. It’s not a terrible film by any means, but given the concept it is surprisingly bland. There were so many opportunities to do something cool with the dream concept, but it felt to me like they played it “safe”. And yes, the characters are extremely forgettable. I will give credit to Jackie Earl Haley, he does a pretty good job with the material he is given.<br><br>And I just remembered 2 excellent horror scores from the past few years: <br>It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch.
"Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site." <br><br>I've looked through this thread several times and I never saw that information, but I appreciate you filling me in! And yeah, Hybrid, it is kind of difficult for me to distinguish between Lorne and Steve's TF styles. They both kind of blend in since the style was established with their heavy collaboration in the first 2 films.<br>The music is good, definitely better than Amityville (which I never found scary or interesting). The overuse of the cello and ambient/atonal cues gets annoying at times, but unlike a lot of modern horror there is real substance here. A decent amount of themes (but not too many), some decent suspenseful ostinato bits, good use of children's choir, and good thematic development. I don't have any interest in Steve's ambient horror scores because I really dislike that type of music.<br><br>As for the remake it's really mixed for me. There are genuinely creepy visuals and ideas, but with often poor execution. My go-to example is there's a great dream sequence with "not-Johnny Depp" in the library with dream-like visuals such as Freddy turning around inhumanly quickly. But that final visual is accompanied by a jump-scare for no reason and completely kills the impact of it. If his turning was completely silent, it would have been much more terrifying. <br><br>Jackie Earle Haley did a really good job as Freddy, (especially in the alternate ending), and Rooney Mara executed the material she was given very well. But unfortunately the characters are bland, all fitting into the emo/hipster teenager stereotype and little else. It also doesn't help that much of the deleted and alternate scenes ended up being much more interesting than the final ones we were stuck with, (Hospital Opening, Dean's original death scenes, and Alternate Ending).Ummm @Hybrid, what do you think about Holly Amber Church. I listened two scores from her and they are really good scores.I really liked Gary Go's Friend Request from 2016 too.My choices for Avatar 2 would be:<br>Powell or Newton Howard
^ 2018 I meanSteve really knocked it out of the park with “Nightmare”. I always appreciate horror scores that balance the use of themes with the more atonal music you normally get.<br><br>And the last horror score I remember loving was John Carpenter’s 2019 Halloween score. A great blend of old and new, especially for Carpenter fans like myself.@Knight Powell’s last score was HTTYD3....@superultramegaa<br><br>Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site.I'm a huuuuuuge fan of the Freddy character & movies, and I really liked this remake, it didn't deserve the reputation it has... Especially when you compare to Freddy 2 or 6... lol<br><br>Music is great, best horror score Steve did with Amityville. But I also liked his more ambient horrors like Texas Chainsaws or Friday the 13th or Hitcher. But I can understand he probably wanted to step out of that genre and not end up being the new Harry Manfredini typecast !
"I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style"<br><br>Well that's the thing, if you think "TF style" thinking of TF1 & 2, then it's not exactly completely Steve. So I stick to my comment... :) lolI recently saw both this movie and Friday the 13th (2009). And I have to say that Steve did a pretty good job with the music. Yes, I'm aware of the complaints and the whole "remakes suck" mentality. But still......I advice you to revisit these scores. You might be pleasantly surprised. <br><br>Speaking of horror scores.......I realized these days that it's been a while since we've heard a TRULY memorable and effective horror score. Or maybe it's just me and I've missed some really good ones...<br><br>Your thoughts on the matter, folks?^ Yet he’s still not quite a household name like some of his peers. HTTYD, Bourne, and Solo have all given him great exposure, but I feel like the general public doesn’t quite recognize him on the same level as Zimmer, Giacchino, or Williams.Many thanks Hybrid!John Powell's last score was for a Star Wars movie, I don't think you could get any more mainstream exposure than that.

Harry gregson williams will compose mulan ??!!!!! Come on this is blowing my mind. I truly hope for hans zimmer or other great composer like desplat or silvestri. I wanted hans to score a master piece like last samurai. But no offense to harry. He is good and more than good but disney live action like mulan really wanted something special that i think the right guy is hans !

Don't want to be a downer but, really, let's all hope things won't blow to s*** like they did with Alien: Covenant or some other annoyance.


Rafael2018-10-21 01:56:53
Year, but seriously, these genres are where Harry Gregson-Williams always succeeded (Animation and Fantasy). I have high hopes that he will do a decent job and find back to his roots from the 2000s.

Comparing this to classics like Chicken Run makes me sad. Will we ever get scores like that again?


Olive2018-01-30 01:39:48
Chicken Run is more Power than Williams, you know...

Morgan Joylighter2018-01-30 14:31:16
I know, the comparison is more that they are both claymation films by the same director. It's sad that they wanted interesting fresh music 20 years ago and now they just ask for generic crap with no creativity or passion.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-31 10:04:28
I've only heard a few bits of this score but it sounded nice enough, no masterpiece but no generic crap either.


Andreas2018-01-31 11:58:02
I thought it was great. The main theme is great and played throughout the score. Looking forward seeing the movie. No generic crap indeed.


Morgan Joylighter2018-01-31 16:32:36
You can reject the specific phrase "generic crap," it was just a quick way to describe how I felt after listening to the score. If some of you actually enjoy it than I don't want to insist its worse than you think it is. I just didn't have the same experience.

But I would be very surprised if any long-time MV/RC fan could listen to Chicken Run and Early Man back-to-back and not feel a sense of sadness for what we've lost in the last 20 years. There are emotions that are almost totally missing from modern scores. Emotions that are the whole reason I and others fell in love with the Zimmer style of film music in the first place.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-31 20:11:33
You could also listen to Early Man and The Replacement Killers back to back and reflect on how far Harry Gregson-Williams has come. I don't know. A whole lot of scores would suffer by being compared with Chicken Run, regardless of when they were composed.


Morgan Joylighter2018-02-05 17:30:34
Now that I cannot argue with :)

Not a bad score. Pretty fun and engaging most of the time.

Wondring how much influence Tom Howe wille have on this score. Professor Marston was such a lovely score.
