mpolonest123, is there a way I could read your breakdown? I would be really interested on taking a look at it<br><br>And yeah, I know there are a lot of themes and their associations are really confusing specially during the first movie, I guess because of the rush job. It's funny how as the saga progressed theme associations became clearer, at least most of the times.oh wow finally... and I like how they finally gave Lorne creditFinally this gets some sort of release outside of China !Well it's complicated cause on the first film it was done such in a hurry that some themes became more "situation themes" than "character themes". But yeah, there's a loooooooooooot !I did a breakdown for the hell of it a while back, the sheer amount of themes/motifs is astounding, not quite as many as Lord of the Rings or Star Wars but very close!<br><br>It’s tricky to really place some of the theme meanings in as much as they were repurposed for the other films through temp tracking.
I was recently revisiting all of this scores and I was wondering...<br><br>Could anyone help me identify all of the themes from the whole saga and tell mewhat they represent?<br><br>I already got a lot of them like the Kraken, Davy Jones, Mermaids, the main theme, etc. But others are still a bit confusing on what they represent, like for example the theme Neely and Badelt created in the first movie that were used in the following movies.<br><br>Thanks in advance!why no cd release?Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!
Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.
The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.

Interesting... A Superman Return's track was included in X3 soundtrack? ahahahah (I'm joking, but track 2 is very similar to Superman's theme).
The whole album is quite good, but in my opinion Powell has to ride a long road before becoming a good composer! "Mediocre" is my opinion about this album.
Kamen & Ottman made better!


Henko2019-09-11 22:03:20
Damn, this is wrong on so many levels


ThePhantasm2019-09-13 20:07:00
The words mediocre is not something you use when talking about this score. Kamen score is good but not on this level, and Ottman doesn't even come close. But that's just my opinion

Hans Zimmer scoring X-Men Dark Phoenix.

Welcome back to Superhero world.


mpolonest123 2018-01-25 22:32:38
Between this and LB doing Pacific Rim, I’m more than happy. I really doubt he’ll use Ottman’s X-theme but hopefully he be as creative here as he was with ASM2!


T-Mann0362018-01-26 01:18:47
I knew that Zimmer isn't gonna retire. His previous pictures, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice were incredible. Welcome back to the Marvel and DC Universe, Hans.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-26 12:36:46
Zimmer retires and unretires almost as much as Hayao Miyazaki!


M2018-01-26 14:56:08
This is going to be something amazing!


DT-20172018-01-26 16:43:31
Makes me wonder if Ottman just refused to do it. Though after his reported experience with BvS, I wonder what made Zimmer change his mind on this one.


Mephariel2018-01-26 18:14:36
Probably a much better script. Kinberg has said that this is a straight up drama/suspense movie. It is completely opposite of movies like BvS and X-Men: Apocalypse.


Radik2018-01-27 09:39:38
Hans said he is willing back to comics genre if the screenplay has its quality.


JBSO992018-01-27 11:46:15
This are great news! I was hoping that the retirement thing was just temporary, and luckily it was. His scores in superhero movies are always fantastic and I cannot wait to hear what he creates in this one.

"Why the producers never remember John Powell?". Is what I question to my self everytime outs a dissappointing superheroe score, like The Avengers by Alan Silvestri, John Powell did this great score for X-Men, and looks like nobody remember it, why John Powell never else did another superhero score (ok, it's Hancock, I know), but Joh Powell can do something else, to part of just excelent score for animated movies


Ds2014-02-01 12:49:00
Maybe they ask him every time and he's the one refusing these projects... He took a lot of time for himself/his family, maybe he's not as much a work-junkie as HZ is :-)

But these are pure speculations, we don't have a clue.

The essential thing is: a lot of people are missing John Powell and would be extremely happy to see him gloriously return. I hope he comes from time to time on this website and see all the love we have for him!


Mike2014-02-01 14:50:29
2015, guys—How To Train Your Dragon 2 and, presumably, the next John Williams Star Wars score! :D


MrZimmerFan2014-02-01 21:32:22
My favorite of Powell


dark prince2014-02-01 23:58:27
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is for 2014, I really want to hear this score, the first is a masterpiece by John Powell


Ds2014-02-02 00:44:54
Mike if there's one thing in 2015 i absolutely don't care about, it has to be that f#cking Star Wars movie, including its soundtrack. And i'm already tired of all the hype that's going to come over the next two years :D


Mike2014-02-02 03:39:19
lol....harsh. I can understand not caring about the movie, but the music, too???? :P Oh well, to each his own.


Edmund Meinerts2014-02-02 11:48:07
How can you not care about the opportunity to hear more Star Wars scores from John Williams?

I LOVE phoenix rises!! I consider it my own personal theme, and I play it every morning to get my blood pumping! It is a better eye-opener than coffee WITH caffene! It's better than a 6-pack of red bulls! It's just so Goddessy-girl-powery-awe-inspiring-wowee-wow-wow!

I have to say...the "Phoenix Rises" is just too powerful for me to listen to without breaking down with tears in my eyes!!! I know every fan in here would agree with me! I'm not ashamed to admit my personal feelings for this particular score! It's just that every time that I hear "Phoenix Rises", it seems that every core inside my body is forcing its way through the pores of my skin!!! Unbelievably incredible film score by John Powell!!!

Dies irae, dies illa, This day, this day of wrath
Solvet saeclum in favilla: Shall consume the world in ashes,
Quando Judex est venturus When the judge shall come
Quando Judex When the judge
Dies irae, dies illa This day, this day of wrath
Dies irae, dies illa This day, this day of wrath


Tuba mirum spargens sonum The trumpet, scattering its awful sound
Per sepulchra regionum Across the graves of all lands
Coget omnes ante thronum. Summons all before the throne.
Mors stupebit et natura, Death and nature shall be stunned
Cum resurget creatura, When mankind arises
Judicanti responsura. To render account before the judge.

I think those are the lyrics but I am not to sure about it though. If anyone knows latin then i am sure they could help out more.

lavad, as I wrote below:

''The reason behind this (the main titles sounding different) was that they had to do some emergency recording sessions to get the music done for the films release.

Powell had more time to work on the CD release, so the overall result, while different, is better. ''

Sorry, I´m from Czech Rep. and I can´t speak very good english, but John Powel is Great Composer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From what I've heard, a fair amount of the first half of the film sounds different on the CD release.

The reason behind this was that they had to do some emergency recording sessions to get the music done for the films release.

Powell had more time to work on the CD release, so the overall result, while different, is better.

Jean Grey/Phoenix/Dark Phoenix's theme music for X3 is easily the best not only in this movie but the entire trilogy! Especially the version from Whirlpool of Love, Phoenix Rises and Dark Phoenix's Tragedy.

"La La LaLa Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... LaLaLaaaaaaaaaa.... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.... DuDu Duuu Duuuuu...

La LaLaaaaaa Laaaaaaaaaaaaa.... La La Laaaaaaaaaa..... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaa...."

Quick Question to any one out there who might know this. What theme music is playing at the end of x 3's teaser and first trailer? N-E info on that would be great.
