@Anonymous You don't believe in thermometers? Well, thank god the western civilization consists of secular states. You're granted religious freedom.o.OBudget 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.And Zimson, if you really believe science cannot become a "dogma" then you truly are naive.  Just as Mark wrote, take the Climate Change issue, that is a great example of "science" becoming dogmatic. Now all the environmental-extremists can start spewing their hate too.Andrew, you just made the same argument that I have been making all along, but in reverse.  I have said numerous times that it takes just as much faith to believe in evolution as it does to believe in God.  Either idea requires that something came from nothing.  Science and logic states that this simply cannot not happen, matter cannot be created or destroyed right?  So since matter was created against the laws of science, then there must have been a supernatural force involved.  Again I ask.. if I'm wrong, what have I lost?  Whereas if you are wrong, what do you stand to lose if the Bible is indeed true?  I'll take my chances with God.
I agree with Anonymous on the problems with evolution.  Evolution requires a complete circle of reasoning to verify itself. The rock strata layers are dated by the fossils they contain, but those very fossils are dated by assumptions that the theory of evolution is true is true in the first place. That is just bad science and every logically thinking person out there should understand that. <br><br>It is no different that all the global warming alarmists like Al Gore claiming the Polar Ice Cap would be melted by now, but instead NASA has stated it has nearly doubled in size adding an area equal to the size of Alaska. In the 70's the enviro-alarmists were screaming about global cooling, then it warmed up a little and they changed it to global warming, then (darn it) it started cooling  again so now the extremists call it climate change.  I just haste it when the facts keep getting in their ideological way.@badbu you posted your double on the same thread.@badbu you posted your double on the same thread.If you are interested, contact Mr. Charles at 528491, Limbo Street, at 4:35 p.m. precisely. Be on Time.Spot on Ed. No one's been out there since 1972.<br><br>BTW, apart from the meteor showers, the value is actually about 30 kg per day, which gives about 11000 tons per year, which is closer to the current estimate, 15000.<br><br>As for the moon dust theory, Moon has a mass 1.21% of that of Earth, but a surface area 6% of Earth. Also, the dust is evenly spread all over the Moon, unlike Earth (You know, rocks and deserts).
He's got nothing... lolDude share,share,share.... i want complete scoreEdmund, I like your comparison with TLS, so true!<br><br>Hybrid, thanks for taking the time to answer :-)<br><br>I would love to be able to perform an Inception on Hans, to make him add "Budget Meeting" to his next tour's setlist :p9m34 GOD v.2 <3It really is the incestuous son of POTC 1 & Last Samurai... And it's direct son is POTC 2... lol
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.It's the film codename...what the hell does the LC mean?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).<br><br>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...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?<br><br>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).

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?


al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02
I doubt he actually conducted it


tristan2014-08-19 23:46:25

Does anyone know where you can get the sad piano music they played in the contender. If you watch the first episode of the contender series 1 on youtube you can hear it. (Its played right at the start where stallone says "life is a fight"?

Hans Zimmer is scoring the History Channelís upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnettís reality show The Contender.


Ds2012-12-31 17:24:56
Woooow 2013 will definitely be a great year for us! There's an extract of this series at /watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S42szZFGmZw#! , the music is pretty beautiful - don't know if it's from Zimmer or not...


Jimmer2012-12-31 17:55:02
Wow, that's awesome. Any new music from Zimmer is exciting and now getting a plethora of new music from the composer next year is really exciting.

@Hybrid: Do you know if the music from said documentary, The Bible, will be released officially on CD or something?


Macejko2012-12-31 18:27:23
The series itself looks shitty though. Cheap and poorly directed.


Jack2012-12-31 19:15:00
A preview of the score is available on Youtube, on the official channel of the series (The Nativity scene).

The Main Theme is not by Hans Zimmer.
Is been composed by Steve Jablonsky, Zimmer is just the score producer.
