New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br>youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nVB9Q77N9h-iKbNe7ZWrQHjiy_ vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br>youtube.com/watch?v=YGCFdR--u5M<br><br>Strength and honor!<br><br>One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol
"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????
I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !
I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happy

Hybrid could you give us the credits you have?


Hybrid Soldier2020-07-17 22:09:11
Matthew did the "Wedding" cue as well as "To The Opera".

Dom did the "Cosmetic Surgery" waltz.

Suites are 100% Hans, "Moriarty", "Mycroft".

You could put Lorne everywhere else but "Fight With A Cossack" and you wouldn't be that far from the truth...


elgordo2020-07-21 15:38:33
I've always been curious about the cossack cue... perhaps it was Igudesman's arrangement?


Hybrid Soldier2020-07-21 18:35:01
It's a jam.

Hans, Atli, Noah Sorota, Davey Johnstone & Ann Marie Simpson.


GermanRCPFan2020-07-21 21:46:10
Hybrid, do you know, did Junkie XL made only Remix on album? And Mel Wesson did only "Holmes Tortured?

Really didn't know that Cossack cue done four composers..


Hybrid Soldier2020-07-21 23:09:14
Junkie only did the remix.

And yes Mel's "remix" of the the Torture scene was made specifically for the soundtrack album.


GermanRCPFan2020-07-22 00:50:45
Thanks for info.


HunterTech2020-07-28 02:13:44
Since Margeson did the Wedding cue, does that mean he also did the similar sounding Honeymoon track as well? Thanks

Technotron reply Replies: 1 || 2020-04-06 00:30:18
Greetings! I have a question regarding the placement of certain cues. Here, "Mycroft Is Nude" is placed where it plays in the film. However, on the sheets, it's shown as being after "Paris Bombing Investigation." Was the scene originally supposed to be later in the film? I'd be curious to know.


Anonymous2020-04-07 16:50:15
it doesn’t play chronologically?

Is it possible to get full credit list for this score? I'll love to know which tracks Lorne worked in.


Michael Baker2019-06-21 16:22:48
Lorne did the great majority of the onscreen cues. Hans spent most of his time on this score writing the Moriarty Suite (which is longer than on album and has a few versions).


AFan2019-06-21 17:37:54
Michael, that's my impression with some Zimmer scores: he composes a suite with the themes, hands the rest to his collaborators and supervise the work. But at the end the cue sheets will give us the information.

1- Open - (Hans Zimmer 1:03) - (1:04 -2:27- Lorne Balfe), and continue Hans Zimmer music. 2:27-2:58

HunterTech reply Replies: 0 || 2018-07-16 04:33:18
So I've finally decided to give this a listen today, and it was a lot of fun! The general quirkiness, source cues that actually benefit the score, and one of the best themes that I've heard from Zimmer in Moriarty certainly make this one a keeper. A lot of people barp on the OST, but it certainly made me interested to hear the music in a better form. I'll probably have to listen to it again before forming a definitive opinion, but as is, it managed to actually live up to the hype.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-09 13:25:40
So am I right in thinking that the "Shadows" cues on the album are a combination of "Moriarty Suite" with "Chess Match"? Those two run 19:25 together, and the Shadows cues are 18:17, so if you factor in the OST's 8% speed increase it could fit. I ask because those two cues are missing from the sessions leak and I'm trying to put together as complete an album as I can (shame two such important cues weren't included in the leak so as to have them at the right speed and pitch, I can slow it down myself but it still doesn't sound quite "right").


mpolonest123 2018-06-09 15:36:22
They are, although the first 2 minutes of “Chess” seem to be a mix of the complete Moriarity Suite and possibly “Holmes Captured by Moran”

Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?


Medigo2018-05-18 10:11:09
Probably for chronological purposes
even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that time

Just listening to the first three tracks, it reminds me of how disappointed I was when the OST first released. This is one of my favorite scores by Zimmer, so this is like discovering it all over again!

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 9 || 2018-05-13 17:51:09
So happy these are finally out!

Alongside At World’s End, this is not only one of Zimmer’s best sequel scores but one of his best scores in general. Between the Moriarity theme(s), the Romanian Gypsy influence, and all of the new ideas thrown in you really get a sense that Zimmer put a lot of heart into this one. And that train fight sequence? Definitely on par with the 18-minute action cue from Sherlock 1.

It’s also pretty cool to see the evolution of Moriarity’s theme start off all proper and composed, only to gradually disintegrate as the music progresses. By “Pre-Vis Finale” the theme is boiled down to only three notes. There is so much genius here, and the score never resorts to temping in numerous cues from the first film to pad it out (here’s looking at you TDKR/On Stranger Tides).

Honestly, I still can’t understand why the album was such a mess? Between the pitch being off to missing important cues, that release was a disgrace. Now, if I had a major complaint with the score, it’s that Simza never receives a proper theme. You have the gypsy sound for her, but no established identity.


kingfannypack is the MILFcommander2018-05-13 18:50:12
Hans' goes over this score a lot in his Masterclass, you can tell it's something he is very proud of. Rightly so!


Mike (OTM)2018-05-14 03:30:56
This is a pretty good score. I look forward to digging into it properly.


mpolonest123 2018-05-14 03:42:11
The alternate “Fight With A Cossack” track is pretty cool, I can see where they got the beat for the remix album track. As for the unreleased material, I really love “Paris Bombing Investigation”, something about that cue....


Mike (OTM(2018-05-14 21:15:55
Out of curiosity, what are some of the things he says about this score in the Master Class? I have no reason to spend money on it, cause I'm not an aspiring composer, but he doesn't talk about this particular score in interviews much...


Mephariel2018-05-14 22:50:20
He used some of the footage with the music as an example of creating the right tempo for a score. He also demonstrated the composition experimentation and work process he went through as he created the score's music diary.


Mikefilm82018-05-15 00:03:49
Is Balfe mentioned in the masterclass ?


Mephariel2018-05-15 00:19:36
I don't think so. I can't remember him mentioning other RCP composers (he didn't mention John Williams a couple of times I think). He mostly talked about directors not other composers.


mpolonest123 2018-05-15 01:42:13
He uses the Moriarity Suite (Tick Tock) to show how he uses his workstation to come up with ideas and assemble the music...
