The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe “leaked” his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

Is there any right tracklist from the recording sessions???

Mike reply Replies: 4 || 2014-01-05 22:17:47
Was this score similar to Rush (a band score where everyone writes everything) or is it indeed mostly Zimmer? It's older, and his older scores tend to be more traditional in the crediting area. :P


Marc2014-01-06 02:36:53
Nope, Heitor Pereira & Jeff Rona did write themes here. I see no bands, except the VA songs.


Magnus Rex2014-01-06 04:21:30
You misunderstand what Mike meant; I believe he is at least partly right, some of the music was scored like a jam session, where music was improvised that later became honed into the score. Mike didn't mean actual bands did music for the film.


Mr Tweedy2014-01-06 13:15:59
That's right... They were like a band jamming in the studio. The music was recorded and some of it ended up in the film, usually re-arranged depending on each sequence's needs.
But basically, HZ wrote the main themes (Still, Vale of Plenty, Tribal War, Leave No Man Behind) but it was all played and arranged by the band itself during the jamming sessions or later.
Some cues are credited to other musicians (Pereira for Mogadishu Blues, Rona for Bakara, Wesson for the ambient part from Chant...). "Ashes to Ashes" starts with some kind of improvisation on the electric cello by Martin Tillman, then the band starts to play all together.

There's a lot of unused / additional music that never ended up in the film.


Mike2014-01-06 21:35:10
Thank you, Mr. Tweedy.

I'm really curious as who wrote "Hunger" ;P


Mike2013-11-10 03:30:44
I'm curious who did what in this entire score. I imagine off the bat that Zimmer did "Leave No Man Behind" and "Tribal War", but wasn't this score basically a bunch of jam sessions?


MacArthur2013-11-10 17:35:44
I think hunger is Zimmer isn't it?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 18:02:09
MacArthur, unless you're willing to substantiate that claim, all anyone is going to read is "I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT ANYTHING" on a post with your name on it.


MacArthur2013-11-10 21:17:21
My question is why wouldn't it be? let's just put it that way.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 21:48:02
There's no reason why it wouldn't be...just like there's no reason why it would. My point is, if you don't have anything more than an "I think," without any reasoning or argument to back it up, then you're contributing jack shit to the discussion. It's like the internet version of talking because you like the sound of your own voice.

When Hybrid says a cue is by a certain composer, we listen because he has access to information we don't have. With you it's just random gut feelings and opinions without any convincing substance behind it whatsoever. Hence, why should we listen to you?


MacArthur2013-11-10 22:01:55
When did Hybrid say that it wasn't Zimmer. I didn't go against what he said If he says it, it's fine with me.

Does it say anything about Hunger being by a different Composer?


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-10 22:25:08
There's four additional music guys up there, so there is absolutely ZERO guarantee that the cue is by Zimmer alone. Similarly, there is ZERO guarantee that the cue ISN'T by Zimmer alone. Until we know more for sure, there is also ZERO point in slinging your "I thinks" around.


MacArthur2013-11-10 23:17:27
Yeah That I know but the guy on top seem to say that Zimmer didn't have a hand in it at all.

That's what baffled me I wasn't trying to throw in my opinion on it.

Combination of OST, songs used in the movie, music from the DVD bonus and some promotional cues from the musicians of the score... Everything is edited/chopped so that it looks "new", but, it's definitely fanmade.
