New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br>youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nVB9Q77N9h-iKbNe7ZWrQHjiy_ vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br>youtube.com/watch?v=YGCFdR--u5M<br><br>Strength and honor!<br><br>One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol
"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????
I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !
I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happy

Congratulations Powell, you have composed a great score for an excelent movie.

I agree with you Martin. This film doesn't want, or need a big brassy heroic score. It needs and underscore and that's what it got. This is a film where the music isn't trying to draw attention to itself.

I'd just like to congratulate Powell on pulling off such a difficult project. It's always a challenge to write a convincing underscore, but on this one, being in a touchy genre must have been harder than we expect.

I saw the film recently in Sydney and found the score to be a sensitive accompaniment to the film. The references to - unwittingly or not - New York minimalism (especially Steve Reich) are very canny and appropriate. A film like this doesn't need a psychologically manipulative or lavish score. Underscoring is what's required and congratulations on delivering just that with no loss of sophistication.

UNITED 93 - PRESS RELEASE

(Los Angeles, CA) John Powell scores the much-anticipated United 93 for Universal Pictures and writer-director Paul Greengrass. The film is a real time account of the heroism in United Flight 93, the fourth plane to be hijacked the morning of September the 11th, 2001. The film premiered at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival, screened at Canned and opened April 28. United 93 marks the second collaboration between Powell and Greengrass; the two had collaborated previously on The Bourne Supremacy and will rejoin in The Bourne Ultimatum. For United 93, Powell created an ambient score which he recorded in London with a live orchestra. Varese Sarabande will release the score CD June 6.

As the Powell-scored Ice Age: The Meltdown continues its march to the $200 million mark at the box office, audiences have turned out for another summer box office monster Powell has scored, X-Men: The Last Stand, which has broken records to gross over $175 million in just two weeks.

Powell's long and storied career in music began in Britain where he joined performance art group Media Arts while attending Trinity College of Music. While composing music for television and commercials for Air-Edel Music, he worked alongside composers Hans Zimmer and Patrick Doyle and made his first foray into feature films. After Powell co¬founded the commercial music house Independently Thinking Music (ITM) with longtime collaborator Gavin Greenaway, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue feature film composing.. He immediately scored several projects for DreamWorks Television, but it was his stirring score for John Woo's blockbuster Face/Off that put him in Hollywood's short list. He has since scored a wide variety of films and is well known for his scores to actioners Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Italian Job, The Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy as well as jazzy scores for Be Cool and Alfie.

In addition to Jason Bourne's next adventure, Powell's upcoming slate includes the animated musical Happy Feet, and the film adaptation of the graphic novel The Watchmen.

This Sounds Great !!!!. When does it come to Europe ( Holland ) I Hope it comes very fast.

I Think the score sounds better if you have the images from the film in your head...........

I don't think it comes close to an orchestra - I've only listened to it a couple of times because it's so boring and all I remember is some violins and the occasional percussion.

This time Mr. Powell makes me wanna sleep at all...

There is no orchestra in this project , right ?

Ant reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-06 00:00:00
Rather bland - it just sounded like the Bourne scores without any action.

my thoughts exactly .. the end and dedication are decent but the rest..

very, very, very atmospheric score.
Just percusion and ambience music.

Some string and Powell's son vocals.

"the End" is a moving track.But the rest is like nothing.I can't understand why powell has wanted release this score.

Indeed, "Thanks Varese!"
