Tom just released "London Suite in C Major" on his YouTube channel, and I am really loving it. He's usually hit-or-miss for me, but this cue in particular really intrigues me. Sounds like he merged the orchestral sections of Fury Road with the flighty ballads of Hollywood Golden Age music.CD Release?Will there be a Blu-ray release for this as well. I had heard that the Hollywood in Vienna award show that is essentially the same set would get a Blu-ray release.Especially in the first one, there's a ton of LOTR themes needledropped even though Shore wrote original material for those exact scenes that you can hear on the album, and also there are themes used in scenes where they don't belong at all. Oh and the main theme of the first one and a couple of the secondary ones completely disappear from the second and third moviesLot of Mazzaro credits here
Jackson use more LOTR music than the original music created for the movie.<br><br>Altough, Watertower releases respect the material written by Shore (as he wanted)Skipped the Hobbit films. How so was the music mistreated in those?Peej only produced this film, didn't direct it, and also I sorta think he and Howard Shore don't have the warmest of relationships considering the King Kong firing and then the way the music was mistreated in the Hobbit films.Why wouldn't Peter Jackson have Howard Shore score?Both of these redesigns are great!
@Everan your cover is really nice, I like it!!Made this one myself, if anyone's interested.<br>https: //www.flickr.com/photos/everan-shepard/ 44212313235No, just a rip from the film...DOA Dead Or Alive complete score is here on YouTube today!Harry and Harry on the same stage with Lorne was so cool.Wish they would perform more together.It made gaming cool I thought
For reals. I felt so bad for Rupert that this was all that was offered to represent his score. looks like someone hustled a quick redesign though https://twitter.com/MikhahThomas/status/1071501461215956992Speaking of bad covers...I did and it was amazing.Lorne also had other composers from games on stage also.They all looked like they were having fun and Lorne did an amazing montage of the best games .Did anyone watch the games show last night ? Zimmer , Harry Gregson-Williams and Lorne Balfe all performing !!!!!!Grammy nomination!!

What's the song in the beginning when they're transporting the black girl to the camp?

That pounding sound of cellos and violins that kick in about 90 seconds into "Escape" is absolutely fantastic. I like it even more once the violins start to overtake the cue a little while later. Had this minute-long passage on repeat like crazy since I discovered it. Sure do hope to hear stuff like this in scores more often.

Meh. It really isnít a bad score, but it is probably one of the most cliche things Iíve heard in a while. You have the female vocals for the lead (havenít heard that before) with the same stock action music from every other YA score. Even the main theme sounds vaguely similar to RGWís Wonder Woman theme.

Itís funny that they apparently use music from Divergent in the film, because much of this sounds like a lesser version. And considering how talented Wallfisch is, I honestly donít understand why they would hire him to write something like this. #confused


superultramegaa2018-08-03 16:08:02
Yeah, it's probably just the problem with these cookie cutter YA films that all have the same tone and the same theme of "adults just don't understand our struggle, man." To be honest I didn't even like James Newton Howard's Hunger Games scores. I think the blandness of the films just translates over to the music. E

ven something like Ender's Game where you'd think sci fi would give Jablonsky plenty of opportunities, ended up being a combo of bland ambiance and stock Game of Thrones-esque cello music. Wallfisch's score sounds cliched and stock because this movie is probably cliched and stock (judging from the trailers).


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-03 16:12:15
The irony is probably that the score to Divergent, itself, was absolutely butchered & half rejected in the film ! lol


mpolonest1232018-08-03 16:29:02
Lol that really was a crime, JXLís score for that was probably one of his best.

And wasnít this directed by the same lady who did KFP2 and 3? Which could explain the temp issues, going by what happened on KFP2...


MrZimmerFan2018-08-03 21:01:34
Actually, I like Ender's Game, even if the main theme is something like Game of Thrones (altough, I think has more in common with the main theme from A Nightmare on Elm Street).

As for The Darkest Minds, if is not of the best works by Wallfisch, i like it, a lot, his more emotional tracks are the best (the action tracks are the expected, but more engaging than the actual kind of stuff of this YA movies), and i have to say, i don't consider Divergent Junkie's best, is kinda enyojable, as for my taste (i prefer The Dark Tower or the recent Tomb Raider, even Black Mass more)


Mephariel2018-08-04 06:02:04
If Tomb Raider is your best work, you are in trouble as a composer.

IMO, Mad Max is by far his best work.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 10:02:12
As for my taste, Mephariel, I have more enjoyement with Tomb Raider than Mad Max, IMO.

2 cues from Junkie XLís Divergent Score are used towards the end of this film. Does stuff like that bother anyone else? It was supposed to be an emotional scene but all I could do was think about how the music was being reused.


...2018-08-03 08:02:00
Iím disappointed that Wallfish wrote a score like this that sounds like Junkie XL

This sounds so disappointing. I didnít think weíd hear this kind of stuff from Wallfosh who seemed to be such a great writer. This sounds like everything else and not like Wallfish.

One-worded track titles! Reminds me of early days of Media Ventures!

They sure tried real hard to keep spoilers out of these, didn't they? I suppose I'd take this approach over Latin or irrelevant names, though a little bit of pun and flavor wouldn't have hurt.

Yeah

BTW, John Paesano is credited as additional music
