The Stark theme always left a big impression on me, but the way it plays when Jon Snow dies gives me the chills<br><br>Andrew Kawczynski scored the movie Sky Hunter. The score is available on Spotify now. <br><br>The score is probably the most melodic/heroic that I heard from him.wtf is this? did zimmer score a porno?why hybrid when lorne himself confirmed it? <.<@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?
I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.
Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent newsNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(Hey, everybody!<br>Did you hear the news?<br>Check this out:<br>https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=962210980613161& id=138474459653488Yes and no.<br><br>If we take into account that King Arthur is reminiscent of Crimson Tide, The Rock, The Peacemaker and Backdraft his contributions also pale because it is fair to say that King Arthur were based with the music of these films.
There's a video on YouTube. The video shows Howard Shore writing and conducting the music for the orchestra. The video also shows Howard Shore and Peter Jackson talking about the score. After that, Peter Jackson rejected the score writing one statement about that saying Howard and he discuss about the music many times, Howard recorded many cues but in the process Peter he wasn´t satisfied about the music. That thing created many discussions, they could not agree in terms of music so Peter fired Howard after that saying he prefered keep Howard as a friend. And then the hobbit came and the rest, well, the relation was not the same. <br><br>So there's like 50 to 70% percent of the music recorded by Howard Shore. He didn't finish the recordings, so, yes, there's a rejected score recorded. And then, James came aboard.Of course he's involved !Finally some news about this movie! I really hope Powell is involved because his scores for the first two moves are fantastic. I love them so much.Well "Prime" for TF2 is part of the main theme "Knights March" from King Arthur which Jablonsky co-composed so I really don't have a problem with a lot of the temps from King Arthur in Transformers. Specifically because Jablonsky did a lot of the main tracks for that score.Yeah, specially the "Prime" track from Transformers 2

Man, this is one where I wish there was a complete score release. To be honest, I like this score a lot more than Transformers. Jablonsky's raw talent here is unbelievable, and it feels like his score, rather than an RCP/Zimmer one. First, I love how there's only 4 themes, Love Theme, Imoogi, the classical piece that plays at the beginning of "Village Attack" which I can't remember the name of, and the D-War battle music that slowly develops throughout the score. This allows these themes to be used to their fullest potential, unlike Transformers where each theme is used 5 times at most because there was just too many to develop.

I also love the atmosphere of this score. Some tracks almost feel like they inspired Jeremy Soule for some of his Skyrim travelling music. Mainly "The Legend Awakes", "Yeouijoo", and "Second Life". The nature sounds, the instrument variety, the purity of the strings, it feels like something you could listen to while traveling through the mountains.

The action tracks, are wonderfully fitting for a monster movie score with the brute, overwhelming force of the horns, the complex string/underscore, it feels classical the way Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings is classical. Familiar, yet unique to the composer.

The way the themes develop is perfect, with the love theme developing into the classical death theme as the score closes out in "Farewell", the way the classical death theme develops into the main battle theme in "The Altar", "Buraki", and "D-War". And of course, the way Imoogi breaks down through the film, and rebuilds until the satisfying and beautiful finale of "Arirang".

This score, while being made for one of the most infamously bad monster movies ever, has so much care and love put into it. I've never even seen the full movie, but thanks to the fantastic storytelling in the music alone, I feel like I've already experienced it. Probably better than if I'd seen the movie if it is as bad as people say. Highly underappreciated Jablonsky score, and one of my favorite scores ever.

Sorry to go on for so long, but this score is like Steamboy for me, where once I start, I have to finish it in the same day because I love how perfectly it's crafted for this type of movie.


Hybrid Soldier2018-03-15 11:36:02
Funny that many people saw Transformers ripoffs in it while it was written a year before...

The film is hilariously bad, but guess what, they are making a sequel !

Jablonsky should come back, just for the joke ! lol


Edmund Meinerts2018-03-15 12:41:11
I enjoyed your impassioned defense of the score. I really ought to give it another listen one of these days, I've got the "Imoogi" cue on a few playlists but otherwise haven't heard it for years. I remember liking it okay though (nowhere near as much as Steamboy, but a solid score nevertheless). I'm especially intrigued by your Skyrim comparisons!


superultramegaa2018-03-15 13:51:40
I do really hope Jablonsky comes back for the sequel. I miss this type of music from him, the more detailed and mostly orchestral stuff. Transformers 1, 2, and 5 are a lot of fun, but not as good as this IMO.

And Edmund, yeah Yeouijoo in particular gives me a lot of Skyrim vibes, particularly the really calm and peaceful opening. Also the classical piece I was referencing was Dies Irae. It's usually used in movie scores to convey approaching death.


Backbiter2018-03-15 15:08:53
Never heard of this one, I'll give it listen based of on your review.

I have to admit that missed this soundtrack somehow. Recently opened it as good old vine. Very good soundtrack. It's very close to Transformers, but different. Amazing that number of people asked me whether it was unreleased music from TFs. Thanks to Steve and his team.

It's a nice soundtrack, although i agree it's not going to be like Transformers (1 and 2) that plays non almost every day at my place. Imoogi and Arirang are the best. Arirang reminds me of "Arrival to Earth", i wonder why?! LOL (In case you didn't notice, i was being sarcastic there). As for the film, it's not great but i kind of liked it. (Prepares to be stoned). All in all, a nice effort by Jablonsky.

I'm agree with Ele. This album isn't equilibrated. However, I add the track 'Legend Awakes' for its first approach of the Transformers 'All Spark' theme.

I disagree...though its definetely Remote Control Productions material, its still good.

At least it was better than the movie itself (which I can honestly say was probably the single worst movie I've ever been forced to sit through)

YesAsia is absolutely shipping to Europe (and really cheap), you're probably looking at their US site, you have to look at GLOBAL.

Transformers comes very close...however D-War takes my nomination as best Jablonsky score. "Arirang", "Imoogi", and "Love Theme" are simply brilliant...they helped make the movie more enjoyable then what it was.
