According to Film Music Reporter Junkie will score Mortal Engines. <br><br>http: // engines-movie-adaptation/There wasn't really any hype for the movie, it didn't seem like people were all that interested in a Han Solo origin story. Plus it's only been half a year since Last Jedi came out and broke the internet. Unlike Marvel, Star Wars doesn't seem immune to franchise fatigue.<br><br>A shame. Hope nobody is stupid enough to think Powell was to blame.Hi guys. Dose anybody know why solo faild in box office ?Search for "filmtracks".Sorry, just found it.
Tried that, couldn't find an author named Clemmensen who reviewed it. (I don't know where to look I haven't seen this guy's reviews before).Should be easy to find with google...Seriously guys, what site is he on? I want to see this review, but I don't know where it is.I know woodwinds, with few exception, have been completely abandoned by RCP, but man would it be nice if Steve fit woodwinds into the small scale family scenes. He's great with them, but for whatever reason he doesn't seem to be able to use them unless it's an animation, The Sims or IDEA specifically, or fantasy (even then The Last Witch Hunter had no woodwinds). They add so much to the soundscape and make any score so much richer. <br><br>I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again currently, and god, they'd be nothing without all of those flutes and clarinets. Even when the main instrument is brass or string, the addition of woodwinds is so cleverly implemented by Shore, and they not only blend, but they actively enhance the sound. <br><br>Of course I'd also love Steve to continue using choir. He even seems to be getting better with it, with Transformers 5's use of it resembling the Halo franchise in a number of ways. It would be a wonderful surprise though if he went back to woodwinds eventually. I'm definitely not of the belief that they can't be used in a modern day setting either (Silence of the Lambs and the Spider-Man scores use them particularly well).Steve is a very accommodating composer. So it's really up to the director's vision. With Bay, you know you gonna hear some of the best stuff Steve has to offer and that's because they share the same "musical ear".<br><br>When he's scoring Peter Berg movies, Steve often relies on sound design and his scores for those movies are not really melodic. The few exceptions aside, Berg likes sound design scores. And he likes to experiment A LOT (example: the MRI machine sound that was incorporated in the Battleship score. Bold choice!).<br><br>Where does the director of Skyscraper stand in all of this?<br><br>Personally, I think this score will be "in the middle". Little sound design there, little melodic cue over here.... : ) I don't expect power anthems, simply because - as big as the movie is - it's not "Michael Bay big". I do hope for a little choir work though. Steve is great with choir.
The Solo review does look quite good.<br><br>Clemmensen comes across pretty badly in many of his reviews. Even some of the positive ones. He has some very strong preconceptions about certain things that sometimes lead him to say some reasonably aggravating stuff.<br><br>Interestingly, he stays almost reasonable in his A World's End review. I wouldn't point to that one as his most typical negative review.Additional information<br>Posted date 2016<br><br>but, It was sold for two years.<br><br>Hello Hans.<br><br>May i ask you a question?<br><br>The piano sheet is now on sale, so that your music is now in the market for commercial purposes. It is sold at $ 10, although I do not know whether or not the seller arranged the piano music directly. Please check with us for the availability of other music.<br><br>Please refer to this site: htta://<br><br>(South Korea book store.)<br><br>Book Introduction :<br>It is the piano music which made the best 22 songs. New Age, movies, games, animations, etc., can be seen in various genres, and each sheet of music is directly attached to the author's QR code video.<br><br>If there is no problem, please respond.<br><br>Have a good day.He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :D
If you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :PWhat site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.

Yes is true Zimmer won the oscar for the Lion King thanks to Mancina's job

Levente reply Replies: 0 || 2006-05-10 00:00:00
I agree in a way that Mancina is also responsible that Zimmer received an Oscar, but don't forget, previously if a Disney movie got the Oscar for songs it also received for score. That is why for a few years the Academy decided to break the music Award into to parts: dramatic and musical/comedy.

"I agree to target's message! Hans Zimmer won the Academy Award thanks to Mancina's Work."

Target you're false :)
Mancina arranged Lion King songs ! But didnt arrange lion king's score which is by Hans Zimmer.

It's funny, because you find similarities between Hans and Mark Mancina, it's obviously Hans who's copying Mark Mancina's style and not the other way round ?

It's nice to hear some old-school Media Ventures composition after all this time. Yet I hope Mark would put more effort should he be on board for the second season.

great themes, this is the sound i enjoy in media ventures scores. Only one regret : i felt the grand theme as a faster version of the gladiator main theme...but great anyway !

One the best MV score from one of the best MV composer, Mancina is always the best

target reply Replies: 0 || 2006-04-30 00:00:00
Very good composition. Finally we know who really won the Academy Award for The Lion King!
Mancina's style is different (as we know through speed 2 or bad boys), but here we can find a lot of material that let us know Mark did a great job for a lot of Zimmer's compositions. Infact Mancina arranged Lion King's music... (that won an academy award) and composed Lion King Broadway show...
His style is more interesting and rich than a lot of "standard MV composers", let's keep on mind Twister, Moll Flanders or Tarzan. So I really appreciate Mancina and his Work, very important for a lot of Zimmer's scores, that he didn't composed alone ;-)

Typical Media Ventures score without a single cue to blow you away. It's basically a rip of some of the high rated MV works. Nothing special and highly dissapointing.

MMmm....entertaining score.No more.
More Media Ventures old school and less Mancina's Style.
Some Crimson tide ripp is great :P

Now, this is more like it! From what I remember, this was decent score. Glad it made it way to the 'official-release' pathway.
