I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.
This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"Hahahahaha well I’m glad he got the credit then :DI absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.
Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!And I’m guessing Neill Blomkamp contributed somehow to the “We Own This Sky” theme that pops up throughout...NM
Jeff & Alex & Evan Goldman are regular Jackman team now. Alex scored a bunch of projects, hence his absence here.<br><br>Then you have Halli, Anthony Willis or Mounsey doing all sorts of things when available.Request the king of pride rock with circle of lifeAmon wrote some music before Hans took over (he has cues on his soundcloud I think), but I think he got credited (and just like 1 or 2% of the cues) more for specific sounds than music writing.Widows is terrible score, Inferno was ok, far from things like Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons.<br><br>But yes, listen this one, is gratifying see Zimmer can make things with orchestra like early 2000s. And this comes from a guy who loves Inception, Interstellar or ChappieThe fact that his name is in brackets makes me think he didn't work directly on the score but rather is credited because something of his was used. Maybe it was some of his production music rather than Elysium specifically.

What with all the noise around Hans scoring the "female empowering" Wonder Woman 2, let me just remind the skeptical folks that it was Hans who successfully scored the ultimate "female empowerment" movie - 'Thelma & Louise'.

I still listen to that score. "The Decision" alone is a masterpiece, as far as I'm concerned. The ending wouldn't have been as powerful and memorable if it wasn't for that track. It's so refreshing listening to that score now. It brings you back to the time when scores were more than just crazy, weird sound design.....

^ This.
Aside from being an incredible film that gets overlooked, I think Zimmer did an impeccable job of crafting a score that tackles the depressing story without getting heavy handed and actually fun at points. Very similar to Rain Man in that regard. It’s a bit repetitive but it does suit the film great.

And mention too, all the women who participate in many Zimmer's scores, Shirley Walker, Anne Marie Simpson, Tina Guo,

*sigh* why does it matter to be honest? A female lead movie needs a female composer? Hans Zimmer of course in my opinion is the best option for any movie regardless of any situation. Hans Zimmer was the first person who actually got me interested in movie soundtracks but the way he works and operates works for any type of movies. The last samurai, Gladiator,Super hero movies war movies etc etc. He has done 190+ movies and i love pretty much all of them. He truly has an idea of the music to picture perfect.

MGM announced the 20th Anniversary Blu-ray of Thelma & Louise last week, so maybe there will be an official 20th anniversary soundtrack? And by soundtrack I think everyone knows I mean Hans' beautiful score. Who knows......if not, maybe someone will rip it all from the Blu-ray.

Hello Hans &-- co.

regarding soundpiece for "--Thelma &-- Louise"--

I believde that your sound piece "--Bitches from Hell"-- is from the scene where Thelma and Louise shoot up the the gas truck and it explodes, followed up by some really sweet and great fast western country slide/blues guitar. Im not sure if that is "--Bitches fromm hell"--, but is there any way i can download this piece of music?..it is really great and for me, the definition of what modern fast country guitar is all about. Thanks in advance...Thomas

un score qui continue dans la lignée de ses scores prolifiques et riches en coup d'eclat artistique comme pour "--Rain Man"--, "--Black Rain"--, "--Bird On A Wire"--, "--Days Of Thunder"-- ou encore "--Backdraft"--...
Hans Zimmer continue sur sa lancée et prouve sa maturité en n'utilisant en plus du synthetsiseus habituels, guitare electrique, choeurs de femmes...
La b.o. ne deroge pas a la regle, jouant sur ses bases instrumentales tout en les rendant plus interssant et reelements plus matures que ces precedentes oeuvres.
comme toujours, Thelma &-- Louise a pour particularite d'avoir plusieurs motifs (ou meme de themes) qui se croisent, le tout premier théme entendu est un motif mis en valeur par la guitare electrique et le synthetiseurs utilisé dans "--Going To Mexico"-- ce théme est attribué au voyage des deux femmes, victime de leur innocence et de leur "--train-train"-- quotidien.
Le second théme est celui des policiers, un théme fort qu'on entend brievement dans "--Cops"--, "--The F.B.I."-- et "--The Chase/Grand Canyon"--
L'autre théme est surement l'un de mes preferes, entendus dans "--Cattle Stop"--, "--Wide Awake"-- et "--Thunderbird"--.
Mais le théme a proprement dit memorable est celui entendu dans "--Cattle Stop"--, "--Wide Awake"--, "--The Decision/End Credits"-- et "--Thunderbird"--, un théme d'une trés grande beaute qu'on entend dans toute sa splendeur dans l'excellent "--The Decision/End Credits"--, grace a ce théme Zimmer a prouvé sa grande maturite et a prouver au systeme hollywoodien que ce n'etait surement pas un compositeur a sous-estimé.

Un excellent score de Hans Zimmer qui des Going To Mexico nous prouve qu'il est l'un des meilleurs compositeur mais on retiendra surtout le grand The Decision/End Titles qui conclue brillament le film de Ridley Scott nous menant ainsi dans le grand saut de Thelma &-- Louise

Such a brilliant score! I mainly bought it for "--The Decision/End Credits"-- 'coz it makes me shiver every time I hear that fantastic climax and the female singing coming in. Hans has always said he's not released it because there's not much score except for the same repetitive theme, but that's EXACTLY what I wanted!! I will never understand why this wasn't commercially released coz it really has to be one of my most listened-to CDs. I just love the melancholic twangy guitar tune that really conveys the strain and strength of the two characters. I'd never heard the music for "--Regarding Henry"-- before but it sums up the reason I love Hans Zimmer's music!

I did, however, have the hardest time tracking it down, so for anyone who wants to know, try placing an ad in the forum for it at

www.soundtrackcollector.com

The people there are really helpful. The other places I know that still have it (at this moment in time) are Hurricane Records, a European site:

http://213.239.206.44/hurricane/product_info.php?products_id=809262

I nearly vomited when I saw the price - 79.99Eur, which is a bit pricey to put it VERY mildly. Another very reliable collector is

http://www.majestyx.com/discsale.html

The price is $35 which isn't bad I guess. The guy is very good at transactions, and I've been told you can't get better service from him!

Anyway, if you're a fan of the movie, or more importantly, a fan of the simply gorgeous music of it, then it's an absolute must have. Worth every single penny of its pricing. You may have to loads for it, but trust me it'll be worth it, if just for "--The Decision/End Credits"--. Good luck!

Excelent Score from both movies. I heard the score from Regarding Henry never before, the score from Thelma &-- Louise I know from the movie, but this CD is a long waiting for the score from T&--L, now I have it and it is absolutly fantastic sounding. I don't know why this score wasn't released yet.
