Pluto, you said it well. I can't quite say how much I thought Interstellar would get a better score on the site, but now I'm completely convinced that Zimmer will be doomed to 2-star ratings from now on. :P I was at least expecting him to hate MOS, TASM, and Batman, for example, but I wasn't expecting this. But I will be expecting it now, regardless of the project.<br><br>And in the end, Hybrid's right—the man has one opinion, and it doesn't affect others' opinions. But it definitely comes across as biased.Btw, he gave Gladiator 3 stars (!), for both "as written for the movie" and "as presented on album", but for some reason nominated it for best score that year, although it couldn't possibly have been in the top 40.<br>And how do you even define "great"? By your personal opinion or critical and public acclaim since Angels & Demons definitely isn't acclaimed but Inception is.Lol, I've been waiting for this a long time now. His reviews are hilariously bad! :DOkay great! Too bad Hans didn't do much on this one...Lol, Hybrid. :D I wonder how many composers Hans could sue for ripping him off.<br>However, this Friedman guy now gets more attention than he has ever gotten, so it's a win for him even if it doesn't go to court. We shouldn't care at all.<br>
Well what to say, the famous composer of Ticking Clock and Max Havoc: Curse of the Dragon has been plagiarized by Hans Zimmer, who has been waiting 10 years to finally find the right time to use his masterpiece cue in 12YAS...<br><br><br>LOLIt is in The Netherlands: h t t p://open.spotify.com/album/3oHiQwIBkONOyB6FHNvpPHAlways that same shitty argument, "But look, he liked THIS score ! So he's OBJECTIVE !" And he can trash everything else... :)<br><br>Please...<br><br><br>I don't care about reviews, critics & stuff, if people are stupid enough to not make their own idea of something, that they need the enlightment of the IFMCA or so called "reviewers", it's not my problem...<br><br>You're giving this guy way too much importance... He's the lame owner of a lame site crying every once in a while to attract some money for his dying website, and the only way he has to attract clicks is to cover HZ's stuff, while he could focuse on so much better scores, according to him...No it's not om Spotify...The album is on Spotify already :)
www.tmz. com/2015/01/23/12-years-a-slave-soundtrack-lawsuit-stole-mus ic-hans-zimmer/ what do you guys think of this? Just listened to both clips provided in the article and there a very little similarities in my opinionClemmensen has given nearly all of Hans' really great past scores (such as Gladiator, Crimson Tide, The Last Samurai, King Arthur, The Peacemaker, Angels and Demons, and even the lessor known ones like Invincible, The House of Spirits, Cool Runnings, etc. etc.) at least four stars and some five. How can you say he hates HZ? <br><br>I don't think he is being purposefully unfair towards Hans, he, just like myself and a couple others on this board just didn't really care for Interstellar and also for some of his more recent experimental ambient scores.  I think Clemmensen really summed up the issue with Interstellar when he wrote "[Interstellar] is a "...predictably ambient series of repetitive crescendos".  My sentiments exactly.  Why does a person have to be trashed because they have a different opinion?<br><br>Now I'm sure all the "we-love-everything-Hans-Zimmer-ever-did-and-you-better-agre e-with-us" fanatics are going to attack me, so go ahead get it over with.wait what, people still read reviews? I thought those days were long gone, you can just listen to everything on youtube and decide whether its worth the money or not....that is great news, hybrid, who is in the The Bleeding Fingers Custom Music Shop, is rcp composers and others or just rcpI'll give my opinion on this issue once because that's all it deserves really. Personally, I don't mind negative film reviews for some of my favorite scores as long as the film reviewers seriously review the material and state why he or she did not like it. It is their opinion and I respect it. However, in the case of CC, he once again demonstrates his extreme ill-will towards Hans, and it has gotten out of hand. I read the review for Interstellar, and I can honestly saw that only two of the eight paragraphs there focus mainly on the music in the album(s)/movie. Most of the review focuses on Clemmensen's thoughts on Hans, how Hans scored Interstellar, Hans' fans, etc. Music reviews are to review the music, not the composer, his scoring method, or his fans. Sadly, the review never truly analyzes the music track-by-track, which is the best way to do so. Review the music, not the composer. And to take away a star for the album situation-- just stupid. The music on every album was fine, so just because there are three albums does not take anything away from the quality of music. There.
Thanks Hybrid. Actually it's so close to the rest of the score that I really thought the ending scene was also Johansson's music.<br><br>Sadly, I guess a lot of voters will make the same mistake and will not vote for Hans...You're right Zimson, Lorne has some involvement in there ! ;)<br><br>And yep, apparently a soundtrack is planned... :)The album situation with this score deserves to take some flak, but to pull an entire star for it? Nah.<br><br>To be honest, I think it's a decent review. CC obviously has huge issues with Zimmer's root methodology of scoring the concept moreso than the film itself that he simply won't ever get over, but that - narrow-minded as it is - is his opinion, which is fair enough. It's a more balanced review than his take on TASM2 was earlier this year, that's for sure.Any ideas on a Piano Solo Sheet Music Book release. Most of Hans' recent work has a piano book released shortly after or around the time of a DVD or Bluray release. Of all the recent scores of Hans' I figured this would be the most deserving or most appropriate for a piano release. You can currently buy 'Cornfield Chase' for Solo Piano. Though the score relies really on the known theme, there are several other tracks that are unique enough to warrant a release. Just curious if anyone else has any thoughts or news.Did Hans do the entire title sequence or did I just hear Lorne's arrangement of it?

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?


al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02

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 Channel’s upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnett’s 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.
