Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

i don't and will never understand why people are getting upset & angry about other comments, opinions & users...
RELAX GUYS !!!
everybody can express its opinion without fearing to be reprove by someone.
"i don't like that" "well, i do, you bastard & if you don't, you're just a fucking punk" ...
this is so childish, so full of shit... the whole story in the "transformers" pages made me want to puke...
peace on earth, come on!!!

Here I am again. I was going thru my music tonight and realized half my music is from you. My only frustration is that I don't have the Last Samurai for piano. I see the music for orchesstra but not piano alone. Or am I just missing it

It's funny when I think about the movie Last Samurai, it is a movie that I like. But what do I like about it? Acting? Nah, unspectacular. The plot? Nah, makes me feel bad everytime I see it, it is so bitter? Well what then? It's the score! I really really like the score.

Excellent work as always, I am a huge admirer.

Hello Hans Zimmer! I heard Your music in The Last Samurai and I was tremendously happy that it was so well-written! It's good every measure. Powerful and tasteful! I write some classical music and rock/synh music myself as an amateur in Stockholm, and it's great to hear well written music such as yours! Cool!

Thanks Mr Zimmer, this is the most relaxing score ever made. It'is so wonderful!

Hi, I saw this film about 2years ago and loved it for the music. I particularly enjoyed the track playing whilst the credits were showing, does anyone know which track this was or are they in order of play on the soundtrack?

Thanks!

This OST is the most amazing I've ever heard. I can't find words to describe its beauty. It's so passionate and gorgeus like no other score in the world. This is my favourite CD for years, I must cry every time I hear it. I'm from Hungary and my life isn't so good, but this CD give me inspiration to my short stories again and again. Gods (all of them) bless Hans Zimmer:D ! Thank you for being such a genius!

I have been looking for the sheet music to The Last Samurai The music is so powerfully moving it kills me each time I watch the movie that I can't go to my piano and play it! I was never able to play by ear but can read music and this is pure torcher for me.
