After watching the movie, I just have to say it was okay. It had some great moments but for me it had also many problems. And one of them was the music. For most of the part it wasn't even noticeable and when it was, it was like random background music with no really emotion or heart.<br><br>BvS and MoS movies can be criticized for some things but the score is not one of them. The movie gave the movie a strong and powerful side, as well as a heart and emotion into it. In this movie there were so many moments that needed different score. <br>***SPOILERS***<br>Superman's resurrection needed the MoS in full epic form. Wonder Woman at the bank at the beggining needed her theme with the electric cello in full power.<br>The Batman theme at the beginning when he is after that Parademon.<br>We should have a really memorable theme for the whole Justice League as well as for each individual member.<br>The scenes with Clark and Lois at the house in Kansas and when his mother sees him, this needed the piano theme from This Is Clark kent or something like that.<br>And that final moments with Superman opening his shirt showing the Superman logo and then flying to the sky, we needed something like "What Are You Going To Do When You're Not Saving The World?" or "Flight" and not that unmemorable music we got.<br><br>I really hope that the petition of the Extended Cut of the movie made by Zack with Junkie's music gets to be released someday, but for now, I'm disappointed.Sounds fun!!<br>Thanks for the linkAny ideas on the Chronological Order of the Tracks?<br>I made a start here...<br><br><br>Logos<br>Batman On The Roof<br>Everybody Knows - Titles<br>Wonder Woman Rescue<br><br>...<br>Icky Thump<br>Aquaman In Atlantis<br>...<br>1m1a Krypton (from Man Of Steel)<br>Spark Of The Flash<br>Friends And Foes<br>...<br>Come Together - Credits<br>Anti-Hero Theme - CreditsNo, they are the full score cues- as presented in the film. The presentation of the final three tracks on the first disc are edited down for timing.* I posted this at filmtracks and wanted to share it here as well. <br><br>Danny Elfman's comments are very disrespectful and so disappointing for a creative person to hear, especially for composers. Nostalgia is a big problem with Hollywood and it's a simple Jedi mind trick. It's slightly different, but the same meal over and over with different seasoning. Imagine if James Horner didn't get to write the score he wanted for Spider-Man? Or Zimmer had to use Elfmans Batman theme for the DK triliolgy or BvS? Or Shirley Walkers incredible Batman theme for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Or Giacchino just used the original star trek theme, or the original Star Wars themes for Rogue One and created nothing new at all? How boring and uninspiring for the composers not being able to challenge themselves to create new original music.<br><br>Whether you like these scores or not isn't important, the pursuit to create something new is what drives a creative person and gives us freedom in choosing something to enjoy and not enjoy. I love the original Batman theme by Elfman but I love it in the Burton films. I love Zimmer scores for both the DK trilogy and BvS. I am happy I can enjoy both types of scores and films but there are those who don't and that's a great thing because that means we are not all the same and that brings variety of opinion and taste which creates real conversation and most importantly gives an identity to a project.<br><br>It's easy to go back to original ideas, but I respect the creators who actually take the risk and want to try and do something new. If Danny Elfman stands by his words he should have just used the original Batman theme from the Tv Show and film or the original Spider-Man theme. Oops he didn't and we got a whole new Batman theme and Spider-man theme which most of us love. Thank god he didn't stick to using the original themes. The Batman reboots and superman and Spider-man reboots are completely different takes on the characters and that's why they deserve their own new themes and soundscapes. The only time I think an original theme from a film should be used in a new film with the same characters is if it's actually a sequel or prequel connected to that actual original film. Re-boots should always have new original music.<br><br>In the end the comments from Elfman are simply stupid and uninspiring and it's definitely a hidden ego coming through I never new he had which is a shame. I remember what Zimmer said about Danny Elfman's Batman theme being a bit jolly, but that's not attacking Elfman at all, it's how he felt and heard the music and felt that that style wouldn't fit in the new batman films ect.. I have always found the original Batman theme a bit on the jolly side too and I love it because it nails Burton's take on the character and world. That theme is for Keaton's Batman, no one else's.<br><br>One final point, if we keep wanting to just revisit the past and hear and see the same thing over and over and not be challenged with new ideas, what a damn uninspiring and boring world of creativity we will live in.<br><br>All the best to you all!<br><br>
so...based on what junkie says here, Elfman is basically just rehashing old shit, as well as other people's old shit....Unless you want to say he's taking his Batman theme into a whole different direction that he didn't really have a desire to do before...until now....<br><br>In that case, "whatever" is all I have to say.Nice stuff! I still can't believe this score hasn't gotten a release.That's unfortunate. With this score, I think it's obvious that the majority is Jablonsky, as it has a ton of elements from scores he's composed exclusively, but it would still be nice to know who did what, especially with the first and second films. Not sure why there's rarely any proper additional music credits for a lot of the RCP guys, especially considering Zimmer's credits are almost always complete. <br><br>However that cuesheet of the extended score is very interesting. Hopefully if it leaks, all those cues remain there.Damn that sounds different from Elfman's commentsThe funny thing is an interview he gave 1 months before being replaced... Saying pretty much the opposite of Elfman !<br><br>"Itís a massive undertaking. And I canít say anything about Justice League specifically, but Iíll tell you this, and this was exactly the same experience that Hans and I had when we did work together on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Itís like when you see a movie like that, these iconic superhero movies, some of them have a 60 to 80 year legacy, multiple composers had a go at their themes, multiple filmmakers did their version of these charactersóitís very scary. You watch a movie and itís like, ďHoly shit, now I have to come up with something.Ē Youíve got sweaty hands and youíre nervous, and you talk about it over and over againóand I have exactly that relationship with Zack Snyderóand then Zack said, ĒThereís only one thing you can do, and that is embrace this character as if itís your own, keep it close to your musical soul, and just do whatever you feel is the right thing to do for this character.Ē Thatís the only thing we can do. Thatís what all these great directors did back in the day, and thatís what all these great composers did back in the day. It makes no sense for me to do extensive quoting of Hansí score of the really amazing Batmans. It makes no sense for me to quote Superman from John Williams. Because all fantastic composers, they all did the same thing, they did something that was close to their heart, and I have to do exactly the same thing on this movie. You know this is Movie Number 4 that Iím doing with Zack, so you build a friendship and itís built on trust and loyalty. You know how to challenge each other, you know what to expect on the other side, and itís this really open, amazing dialogue about where to take this franchise."
I can confirm that he had already worked on it quite a bit, because he said so in one of his Studio Time episodes.I wouldnít be surprised if he wrote another long sketchbook for it...I honestly have no idea... But I can't believe back in June when he left he hadn't done a bunch of the score already...The thing is with Jablonsky scores composers rarely get cuesheet credits, so you can't really draw conclusions out of it. Here's a small part of the cuesheet :<br><br>QUINTESSA PT 1<br>QUINTESSA PT 2<br>QUINTESSA PT 3 OPTIMUS REDEMPTION<br>KNIGHTED<br>WE HAVE TO GO ZERO GRAVITY<br><br>OPENING BATTLE<br>MERLIN<br>MERLIN GETS THE STAFF - BATTLE WON<br>TROUBLED TIMES<br>CADE DRIVING - AMULET<br>WE HUNT - DECEPTICONS HUNT<br>KEEP A SECRET - VIV ARRIVES CASTLE FOLGEN<br>WITWICCANS<br>ROUNDTABLE ORGAN SOURCE<br>COGMAN CHOIR<br>STAFF<br>BETTER GET CRACKING<br>PLANETARY VAMPIRISM<br>TOO OLD<br>SUBMARINE<br>TWO MOONS<br>MERLIN'S TOMB<br>SPACE STATION<br>CLAIM THE STAFF<br>SHIP RISE<br>YOUR VOICE<br>SOLDIERS TAKE POSITION - BURTON DIES<br>FALL AND GRAB<br>ENDINGrumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it
Any chance of proper artist credits for this score?@Hybrid <br><br>Did Tom actually record anything for the film or did he just do demos?It's the same 24 tracks divided on two CDs. I'm truly hoping for a nice numbered digipak that separates the limited editions from the regular release otherwise it would be quite a crappy move from the record label. <br><br>"Joss said, ĎLetís do it [Batmanís theme] on the nose. Fans love this kind of stuff.í" Why do you have to ruin everything, Joss?This film is atrocious. Suicide Squad was a mess but that film was forgivable. What WB decided to with JL is embarrassing, to say the least. Forcing Zack to change the tone and add forced childish humor and quips, demanding a less than 2-hour runtime, extensive reshoots with Whedon in charge... wtf were they thinking?<br><br>It's interesting to note that Zack hasn't even seen this abomination yet.

Conductor on this score is Pete Anthony, not Gavin Greenaway! Mr. Greenaway will conduct on The Bourne Ultimatum and Jason Bourne.

Anonymous reply Replies: 1 || 2016-02-08 16:26:34
Should we take the lack of a composer on "Jason Bourne" as an indication that Greengrass just used a Powell temptrack for the whole thing? ;)


Macejko2016-02-08 18:17:03
I really, really hope he decided to become a less of an asshole towards his music.

Mike reply Replies: 3 || 2014-09-17 03:11:10
So with the news that Greengrass and Damon are returning to the Bourne franchise...any idea whether Powell will return? Bourne wouldn't be (and from experience with JNH's score, isn't) the same without him!


Lambegue2014-09-17 14:18:31
I doubt it very much...Precisely because Greengrass is returning.


Edmund Meinerts2014-09-19 16:00:12
How many schmucks can there be left in Hollywood that would agree to score a film for Greengrass now? :p


Mike2014-09-19 18:07:42
Yeah, he's a pain...but I still hope Powell comes back. He was part of what made me like the Bourne films.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2013-05-16 09:33:50
I watched the movie again recently (great stuff) and I had never noticed before that a few of the cues were arranged somewhat differently in the film ("To the Roof" has electric guitar not on the album, "Gathering Data" has an extended ending, "Berlin Foot Chase" is somewhat extended, etc...).

It's a great score from Powell that makes the movie all the more enjoyable, as well as the best Bourne score, in my opinion. Although it's too bad the Hotel Brecker music (heard when Bourne is looking up info on Neski and when Pamela Landy visits Abbott) is not on the album.


Aragorn2013-05-16 09:36:22
I know! It was even re-used in Ultimatum, but wasn't on that album either! :(

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-13 00:00:00
Yes, maybe theres isnt too much NR music from Ultimatum, but i just want End Credits with new "To The Roof" variation :)

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-13 00:00:00
I think the Ultimatum complete score isn't out yet. But I think there isn't too much music missing from Ultimatum, because quite a lot of cues from Identity and Supremacy were reused for it.

OMG reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
Woohoo, I just got the 26 track complete score

It is awesomeness on toast!

Yup, it's great to listen to the Goa Chase music in its full glory now! :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
Yeah, the complete score is really good :) Goa Chase rocks as well, but too bad its just another "Waterloo" from Ultimatum, although its better

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-10-12 00:00:00
By the way, is there a complete score for Ultimatum?

I listen to this music almost every night. It really touches me like no other music, ever. I can feel every note!

Thank you.

To me this is an utterly awesome soundtrack. I can listen non-stop without getting tired of it. Powell has mixed together so many different parts to create a piece of music with so much going on. I can't get enough of the bourne music. He brings together both emotion and adrenaline with the most successful consequences I have ever heard in film music. Other Powell soundtracks such as Paycheck (rachel's party) provide similar effects but never to such a high standard. Thanks, John, this music is wonderful.

Thank you Anthony! I guess, I won't have another choice but following your instructions. I was already wondering about doing that but still hoped to find another possibility to get the song in CD quality...
Anyways, great site you built up there ;)
Cheers!

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-14 00:00:00
I agree Horst, for that music to be missing is a crime against nature. Take a look at the FAQ on my site for info: www.johnpowellcomposer.com

Horst reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-13 00:00:00
Also love this movie and the soundtrack!!
What I was surprised about is that the song appearing during the chase in Goa and once again in the end titles after Moby's Extreme Ways is missing on the soundtrack.
Does anyone know why and where you can get it?
Besides To The Roof this is the best song played in the movie and just totally missing on the soundtrack... :'(
