And that's why JNH never got a nomination for The Last Airbender.<br><br>Instead they nominated two and a half good scores. And win the worst one that year.@Bill Koufo: it depends... Look at 'Passengers'. Critics didn't like it very much, but it got nominated for best score, because a part of the voters just LOVE Thomas Newman to death, and HAVE to nominate him no matter what.<br><br>So it's a mix of the movie's popularity with critics, and the composer's popularity with voters. But in all cases it has very little to do with the music itself.Additional composer credits:<br><br>Geoff Zanelli (James Newton Howard)<br><br>END CRAWL PT 1<br>MAIN TITLE THEME<br>MOOR FOLK TO WEDDING PT 1<br>PHOENIX<br>PROTECTING OUR KIND<br>THINGS START TO GO BAD<br><br><br>Geoff Zanelli, Phill Boucher<br><br>AURORA RETURNS TO THE MOORS<br>AURORA VISION / QUEEN'S  STORY<br>BATTLE PT 1 (James Newton Howard)<br>BATTLE PT 2<br>CHAPEL HEROICS (James Newton Howard)<br>CHAPEL HEROICS / M RETURNS<br>DIAVAL BRINGS WEDDING NEWS TO M<br>DON'T RUIN MY MORNING (James Newton Howard)<br>ETIQUTTE LESSONS (James Newton Howard)<br>HELLO BEASTIE<br>HUMANS ATTACK / CONALL WOUNDED<br>M IS COMING TO DINNER PT 1&3<br>M IS COMING TO DINNER PT 2 (James Newton Howard)<br>M RESCUED<br>M RETURNS (James Newton Howard)<br>M TO THE MOORS (James Newton Howard)<br>M'S ENTRANCE<br>ROYAL GOAT / TIME TO COME HOME<br>WEDDING INVITE / SHE'S GONE<br><br><br>Geoff Zanelli, Zak McNeil<br><br>ALL HE WANTED WAS PEACE<br>AURORA FINDS ARMORY PT 1&2<br>BATTLE PT 3 (James Newton Howard)<br>DEATH ORGAN SCORE / FEY ATTACK PT 1,2,3<br>END CRAWL PT 2 (James Newton Howard)<br>END CRAWL PT 4<br>FEY CEREMONY / TOMB BLOOM RAID<br>FLYING CONALL HOME<br>NO MORE FAIRIES<br>ORIGIN STORY<br>PINTO RECON / CAT CHASE<br>QUEEN TO QUEEN (James Newton Howard)<br>QUEENIE ON THE RUN (James Newton Howard)<br>THE WEDDING / YOU'RE SMILING / FINALE (James Newton Howard)<br>TO THE CASTLE / BUILDING BRIDGES<br>TOMB BLOOM FROM MOTHER<br>WEDDING DRESS / BECAUSE OF YOU AND AURORA<br>WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? / PHILLIP PROPOSES PT 1&2<br>WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? / PHILLIP PROPOSES PT 3 (James Newton Howard)<br><br><br>Geoff Zanelli, Phill Boucher, Zak McNeil<br><br>NO NEED OF ARMS<br>SHE SAID YES<br>YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE (James Newton Howard)Exactly @Edmund. You don't have to write a great score to get nominated, your score can be at least decent. It's the movie that needs to be critically acclaimed.There are 2 dates in the UK, London and Manchester on the fifth and seventh of March.
Next Friday indeed.<br><br>Too bad because I REALLY wanted to listen to the whole album right after watching the movie. There are some amazing, powerful cues.Balfe confirmed that the score is coming the next Friday.where's the score? Thought it was gonna release the same day as the movieSpectacular job on Bad Boys 3! Honestly, in my opinion, it's one of the best Lorne scores. Just got back from the movie and both the music and the movie were terrific.<br><br>Lorne and his team have my respect!;)
I have made a mistake.Although you should have more mercy with people.The same "journalists" who said Hans was hired a week ago ?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>LOLJournalists say he will act as a composer.If some time down line it gets revealed that all of these Lornanists were on someone’s payroll, you heard it here first.Confirmed by Lorne, the score album for Bad Boys 3 is coming... the next Frriday
Marr is probably performing the James Bond theme...you know, on the electric guitar? Which is the instrument he's famous for?<br><br>Jesus, I swear there are some people who won't be happy until Lorne Balfe is singlehandedly both composing and performing the score to every film that is ever made.I can't say that I am happy.  I love Marr, but I don't want Marr in Lorne's position.  #BalfeforBondJohnny Marr has been confirmed to be performing on the score...<br><br>Is there going to be a separate discussion thread for this btw?Dark Materials was anything but "a pure orchestral sound" lolIt largely has to do with the types of films he scores.

Night Hunter Soundtrack

Music By Alex Lu and produced by Benjamin Wallfisch
Alex Lu works on RCP? Benjamin is only producer or he made additional music?
Thanks


Knight2019-09-08 01:06:29
Alex Lu is one of Ben's techies, he also wrote additional music for Hellboy

Very exited to hear Ben on Score: The Podcast tomorrow. Hope they'll talk about IT 2 & making Shazam!!!

Having heard the whole album a few times and gone through the process of what Wallfisch tried to do with his music for Shazam, this is not only the best DC album in years, it's also powerful enough to sit alongside (or at least close to) Williams's Superman. This is by and large (unless Hans comes back with a game changer for Dark Phoenix), the winning superhero film score of 2019.

Well played, Wallfisch!


mpolonest123 2019-04-07 02:02:55
It’s excellent in every respect. The orchestrations, mixing, and writing are all fantastic. The album does run a bit long (not a bad thing of course) and there are a lot of action cues piled on top of each other, but with some editing you have 50 minutes of Five-Star material.


Knight2019-04-07 02:16:20
While the score itself is great, I think Ben needs to use somebody like Alan Meyerson to mix his scores. I noticed that on almost every single one of his scores since A Cure for Wellness his mixing/recordings have been a bit shit. The mix problem is EXTREMELY prominent in Serenity, The Darkest Minds, Hellboy, Hostile Planet and to a lesser extent, Shazam and Wellness.
His scores are starting to sound too dry and "synthy" for lack of a better word. Listen to the orchestral recordings in Hostile Planet and Serenity, can anyone honestly tell me that they sound good?
I would love nothing better than to get another score from him on the level of Summer in February, Mully or Gamba cause those sound great.


Edmund Meinerts2019-04-09 17:06:47
Gotta say I somewhat disagree with the lavish praise here. The main theme is fantastic; the melody itself isn't that memorable, but the quality of the orchestral writing surrounding it is high. Indeed, the orchestrations and textures are of a very high standard throughout. However, far from there being 50 minutes of 5* material, I find that outside the suite presentation, the rest of the score feels messy. It's one of those scores that reacts to what's happening onscreen rather than actively driving it, so there are a ton of changes of direction. I feel like you can sort of tell that the director comes from a horror background because there's a lot of that stop-start quality you get from horror scores in the action music here, and I'm not a fan of that philosophy. I much prefer action music to have a more constant pulse while still developing in a dynamic way to match the scene (my perfect example of that balance being the wedding cue from At World's End).

Apparently there was a 3rd score release from Ben this that just flew under the radar. A documentary score no less.

and why isn’t it on here?

/shrug
The staff here don't seem to care too much as of late about adding new stuff from RCP composers that aren't the big names. Jasha and Atli are still missing their latest efforts, and the new release of one of Mancina's old scores ain't here.


Hybrid Soldier2019-04-07 11:11:24
Probably because it'd be a good time for me to stop H-Z.com after 11 years ?


Knight2019-04-07 14:16:16
Are you stopping upkeep of this website in favor of the new one you mentioned earlier?

A few minutes ago about WaterTower Music release subway chase on YouTube today! It's a cool song.

Sounds fantastic.

That main theme is incredible!

It’s basically a mix of John Williams and Wallfisch, and if the rest of the score is the same quality we might have one of the best scores this year.


Michael Baker2019-03-29 03:59:39
I agree. Great stuff. It's nice to hear some fun superhero bombast every once in a while. If the rest of the score is like the cues we've heard, I'll definitely be getting this one.


mpolonest123 2019-03-30 15:30:14
Does anyone else feel like 2:15-3:00 sounds exactly like Wallfisch’s “flying” music for “Peter Pan”?

Little side note: the minute I heard the song I immediately thought of the main tune from “Islands of Adventure” (Call To Adventure). Great theme if you haven’t had a chance to check it out...

I can't wait for this. After the debacle of JL, The DCEU has got back on track musically with Aquaman serving harmonic and electronic interpolation in spades, and Shazam seems to capitalize on that with a more traditional sound.

MG reply Replies: 2 || 2019-03-29 03:59:17
29 tracks? Woohoo!


Edmund Meinerts2019-03-29 10:47:06
I'd rather have 10 tracks and 70 minutes than 29 tracks and 40 minutes. :p


Iamtommie2019-03-29 13:10:20
It's 1 hour and 13 minutes long
