Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.
I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.
Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.
For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsame

corrcting arreinh, in one of the lines and the ending of the song:

We will go home across the mountains
We will go home, we will go home
We will go home across the mountains
We will go home singing our songs
We will go home across the mountains,


and the ending is

When the land is there before us
We have gone home across the mountains
We have gone home, we have gone home
We have gone home singing our songs

The "Knight March" theme is really potent. Hans should release his suites for this! I know it'll never happen, but a CD of just his original demos for his various projects would be really fun to hear.


SPECTER2020-01-17 02:15:19
One of the most elite scores produced.

Does anyone know why "Knight's March" is not in the original album and if there is a extended edition that has this cue?



Mr Tweedy2018-05-27 10:31:05
It is on the original album : the last 2 minutes of "Woad to Ruin".

Edmundo reply Replies: 6 || 2018-02-27 14:13:03
This must be the last really great score by HZ. After this, he went into his 'artist phase' (Brian Eno, Paul McCartney - they all have these phases and they all amount to nothing).

Interstellar is fine, as are the Nolan Batmans but this was the downfall of an icon. He became a silly sound designer.

This cue from Trevor Jones beats most HZ stuff single-handedly, being as it is for Ridley Scott. ### EDITED ###

Have a go and appreciate some real talent. Not some Barfe casiotime.


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-27 16:16:18
Not that Trevor Jones isn't a fantastic composer, but is there really a point to just using him to keep dumping on Lorne Balfe? Don't think you're fooling anyone by constantly changing usernames.

Also, I see your Jones and raise you Jones: ### EDITED ###

A true hero! reply Replies: 1 || 2018-02-07 20:44:30
Hans Zimmer is a hero for having to watch this terrible movie multiple times and not going mad! Even with his excellent epic score this movie is unwatchable, now just imagine without music how torturous the experience was. If i was forced to do this i would probably hang myself in front of director's house with a message for him to burn it in the fiery pits of Mordor and save humanity from great pain suffering.

Is anyone familiar with the SOCOM 3 and SOCOM: Combined Assault soundtracks?! I hear similarities those soundtracks and in King Arthur.


Bioscope2017-06-02 05:58:50
I think the sound was more Peacemaker inspired, imho.


SPECTER2082017-06-02 06:39:48
You may be right but I know that James Dooley from SOCOM also helped on King Arthur. Some themes from both albums I can hum and transition seamlessly between each other.


James2017-06-02 10:56:53
And Dooley just went on to compose the music of the games in 2005. King Arthur is from 2004.

Hybrid, I know you mentioned that Hans had written some suites for this film some time back. Do you have any idea about what those are like?

I finally listened to this score for the first time, and it really is one of his best action scores. You can hear all of the major influence on POTC2/Transformers.


Hybrid Soldier2016-10-10 00:38:40
No I don't... :/

I found back Trevor Morris' note about this score. I wrote it in the details, pretty interesting on the process. :)


nvictor2016-09-27 23:52:33
thx Hybrid!


Prott2016-09-28 00:13:58
Great note! Very insightful. :) Thank you Hybrid.


iii2016-09-28 17:29:20
So we have a detailed discussion of how a cue on a HZ score comes together. Will people finally accept the idea that two composers can work on the same cue.

Maybe then we can work on getting people to understand that a credited additional arranger isn't a "ghostwriter".


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-28 21:02:07
Yeah it's interesting, I will try to add more notes from the various collaborators or Hans on his scores. Did the same with Last Samurai...


Ds2016-09-28 21:18:42
Can we listen to this cue "7m44c Final Battle Pt 3" somewhere?


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-28 21:25:02
Above on this very page... :P


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-29 00:33:45
Did anyone ever actually reject the idea that more than one person can work on a cue?


HypeMusic2016-09-30 14:30:17
Some song have multiple writers - so why can't film cues !


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-30 21:51:30
OF COURSE they can - nobody is saying otherwise! O.o

Ds reply Replies: 7 || 2014-12-22 14:39:58
Hybrid, did you ever get the chance to speak about this score with Hans? It is in my opinion one of the (if not THE) most epic stuff he's written, but curiously I've never heard him mentionning it in any interview. And it wasn't featured during the Revealed concerts (the most notable omission, along with The Last Samurai). Didn't he enjoy doing it? Or is it just because this movie has a bad reputation?

I'm asking this because I'm curious, and because I just replayed it for the first time in several weeks, and it blew me away (again).


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-22 14:53:57
I personally like this film a lot and of course the score (Well when you have a score done by Hans with Jablonsky, Morris, Dooley, NGS, RGW, Blake Neely, it's not exactly the ugliest team who worked with Hans ! :D).

I did mention him this score last year, he told me he wrote some suites for it (which are unreleased) which he likes a lot. Not sure he's a huge fan of the film though, the track title "All Of Them!" is actually a joke about a scene that got cut which just made no sense, where Arthur was asking how many saxons were there and he got as an answer "All of them !", and the scoring team had quite a good laugh...


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-22 15:37:25
I think this is one of the most underrated scores in the Zimmer canon, some of his most unadulterated BIG action writing. I see it kind of as a badass take-no-prisoners sibling to the more calm, reflective Last Samurai. I wish (but doubt) that Hans would return to this mode sometime soon.


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-22 15:45:34
It really is the incestuous son of POTC 1 & Last Samurai... And it's direct son is POTC 2... lol


Ds2014-12-22 17:14:14
Edmund, I like your comparison with TLS, so true!

Hybrid, thanks for taking the time to answer :-)

I would love to be able to perform an Inception on Hans, to make him add "Budget Meeting" to his next tour's setlist :p

Budget Meeting is a fantastic piece of action music as the second half of Woad To Ruin. Both have a fantastic combination of rhythmic percussions and wonderful melodic string parts. good old rcp action music. would love to hear hans doing such music again.


Ds2014-12-23 00:12:10
Lars, you pointed out exactly what I love the most in this soundtrack. By the way, do you like the track "If you love these people" from MoS? It gave me exactly the same sensation as King Arthur (powerful rythmics and majestic melody).

Song of Exile, or 'We will go home' is indeed a much requested and extremely beautiful song, bound to give goosebumps to anyone that hears it.

Not saying anything bad, Hey if you wrote it you are allowed to use it as much as you want.


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-09 13:42:00
More like the other way around. And yeah, I've always wondered why more people don't pick up on that. It's like three straight minutes of copied material.


Mortifer V.2014-01-24 03:42:36
another interesting similarity, is the fact that "Hold The Ice" has some portions that sound a lot like "Davy's Death" from "At World's End" recording sessions.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-24 09:54:30
Yeah...At World's End owes quite a bit to King Arthur, actually. The beginning of "One Day" is quite similar to the very beginning of the first cue of KA. Davy's Death you mentioned. There's also a tiny little duduk theme in AWE's "Bootstraps/Elizabeth Locker" at 1:19 that's out of KA as well!

Coincidentally, those two are among my Top 3 Zimmer scores (Prince of Egypt is the third).


Mortifer V.2014-01-24 13:36:52
Indeed.

They didn't include the best song "Song of The Exile (We Will Go Home)" because Hans-Zimmer didn't write it, instead it was written by Caitlin Matthews. I'd guess it was either a songs rights or credits discrepancy that prevented it's inclusion.

This is, IMO, one of Hans Zimmer's greatest scores... just listening to the start of 'All of Them!' sends me off into some strange trance-like state where I can feel all my hairs stand on end... the voice, the ominous synth notes playing in the background... I'd buy the CD just for this one track. May you continue your genius work for many years to come, Hans! =)
