so...based on what junkie says here, Elfman is basically just rehashing old shit, as well as other people's old shit....Unless you want to say he's taking his Batman theme into a whole different direction that he didn't really have a desire to do before...until now....<br><br>In that case, "whatever" is all I have to say.Nice stuff! I still can't believe this score hasn't gotten a release.That's unfortunate. With this score, I think it's obvious that the majority is Jablonsky, as it has a ton of elements from scores he's composed exclusively, but it would still be nice to know who did what, especially with the first and second films. Not sure why there's rarely any proper additional music credits for a lot of the RCP guys, especially considering Zimmer's credits are almost always complete. <br><br>However that cuesheet of the extended score is very interesting. Hopefully if it leaks, all those cues remain there.Damn that sounds different from Elfman's commentsThe funny thing is an interview he gave 1 months before being replaced... Saying pretty much the opposite of Elfman !<br><br>"Itís a massive undertaking. And I canít say anything about Justice League specifically, but Iíll tell you this, and this was exactly the same experience that Hans and I had when we did work together on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Itís like when you see a movie like that, these iconic superhero movies, some of them have a 60 to 80 year legacy, multiple composers had a go at their themes, multiple filmmakers did their version of these charactersóitís very scary. You watch a movie and itís like, ďHoly shit, now I have to come up with something.Ē Youíve got sweaty hands and youíre nervous, and you talk about it over and over againóand I have exactly that relationship with Zack Snyderóand then Zack said, ĒThereís only one thing you can do, and that is embrace this character as if itís your own, keep it close to your musical soul, and just do whatever you feel is the right thing to do for this character.Ē Thatís the only thing we can do. Thatís what all these great directors did back in the day, and thatís what all these great composers did back in the day. It makes no sense for me to do extensive quoting of Hansí score of the really amazing Batmans. It makes no sense for me to quote Superman from John Williams. Because all fantastic composers, they all did the same thing, they did something that was close to their heart, and I have to do exactly the same thing on this movie. You know this is Movie Number 4 that Iím doing with Zack, so you build a friendship and itís built on trust and loyalty. You know how to challenge each other, you know what to expect on the other side, and itís this really open, amazing dialogue about where to take this franchise."
I can confirm that he had already worked on it quite a bit, because he said so in one of his Studio Time episodes.I wouldnít be surprised if he wrote another long sketchbook for it...I honestly have no idea... But I can't believe back in June when he left he hadn't done a bunch of the score already...The thing is with Jablonsky scores composers rarely get cuesheet credits, so you can't really draw conclusions out of it. Here's a small part of the cuesheet :<br><br>QUINTESSA PT 1<br>QUINTESSA PT 2<br>QUINTESSA PT 3 OPTIMUS REDEMPTION<br>KNIGHTED<br>WE HAVE TO GO ZERO GRAVITY<br><br>OPENING BATTLE<br>MERLIN<br>MERLIN GETS THE STAFF - BATTLE WON<br>TROUBLED TIMES<br>CADE DRIVING - AMULET<br>WE HUNT - DECEPTICONS HUNT<br>KEEP A SECRET - VIV ARRIVES CASTLE FOLGEN<br>WITWICCANS<br>ROUNDTABLE ORGAN SOURCE<br>COGMAN CHOIR<br>STAFF<br>BETTER GET CRACKING<br>PLANETARY VAMPIRISM<br>TOO OLD<br>SUBMARINE<br>TWO MOONS<br>MERLIN'S TOMB<br>SPACE STATION<br>CLAIM THE STAFF<br>SHIP RISE<br>YOUR VOICE<br>SOLDIERS TAKE POSITION - BURTON DIES<br>FALL AND GRAB<br>ENDINGrumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it
Any chance of proper artist credits for this score?@Hybrid <br><br>Did Tom actually record anything for the film or did he just do demos?It's the same 24 tracks divided on two CDs. I'm truly hoping for a nice numbered digipak that separates the limited editions from the regular release otherwise it would be quite a crappy move from the record label. <br><br>"Joss said, ĎLetís do it [Batmanís theme] on the nose. Fans love this kind of stuff.í" Why do you have to ruin everything, Joss?This film is atrocious. Suicide Squad was a mess but that film was forgivable. What WB decided to with JL is embarrassing, to say the least. Forcing Zack to change the tone and add forced childish humor and quips, demanding a less than 2-hour runtime, extensive reshoots with Whedon in charge... wtf were they thinking?<br><br>It's interesting to note that Zack hasn't even seen this abomination yet.
Andrew loaded some cues to the movie "The Last Face" up on his soundcloud page, go & check it :)<br><br>soundcloud.com/andrewkawczynski/sets/the-last-faceNice!<br>What about the 2nd CD?Watched this movie yesterday and it didn't make the score any better. It's not the worst thing I've ever heard but after what we got with MoS & BvS it's just disappointing. There's so much missed opportunities. Both the movie and the score had so much potential but it's just flat. <br><br>The problem isn't just Elfman or Whedon, it's WB! They wanted the change in direction and that's really sad.The movie itself is bad on so many levels and adding to that in many scenes I was shaking my head as I was hearing a completely different score in my mind, but there it was, something which took me out of the movie. Disappointed.<br><br>Do you think Whedon would've convinced the producers to replace the composer(s) if Hans was scoring this along with Junkie? I can't imagine what the uproar it would've created.Yes they did.<br><br>That Phantom Stache is in 90% of the Cavill shots...<br><br><br>Warner/DC died and chose Whedon to nail the coffin...<br><br><br>I hope like Superman 2, that one day, we'll get the "Donner's Cut" of this movie as it was supposed to be, because I think it was almost finished (even the score I'm sure Tom had written a good part of it).

I looked at Gavin's website. Nothing there in any relation to this topic.

They are legit. They don't appear on the fan made bootleg because the bootleg was probably created before those cues leaked on the internet.

> I got a copy of the CT fan made bootleg back in 2002 (I through it after the first listen, waste of time!). I only got those CT cues from Dirty Pictures in 2005/2006 !

The 4 cues presented here are significant OR minor depending on your interest in the movie/score.
3m6 is "Little Ducks" from the OST.
6m14 is a thriller/suspense cue which is pretty cool, though you can consider it "minor" if you're not a CT die hard fan.
11m20B ("Crisis Averted") has a nice "relief" feel to it, in the purest 90's MV tradition.
13m21 ("Court of Inquiry") is the film version of Roll Tide's opening. The cue stops abruptly as in the movie it segues into Roll Tide. You can easily do the editing by yourself because both cues share a few seconds in common.

Overall enjoyable cues but... nothing special.

Are the CT cues significant or are they minor? You don't happen to have the proper cue names do you?

Are these crimson tide cues legit? Wonder why they aren't on that "fan made" boot?

@Per

I am NOT sure about this agency promo but: I have seen the movie and i think the tracks on this "promo" don't fit to the movie. Those MaxQ, The Rock tracks are not suitable. Maybe i am wrong and maybe such a agency promo is also the reason why nick don't get any new jobs on his own...

Never mind.. it was just a thought not a statement !

Representation of what ? Of the best (and longest) cues from the films ?

So what you're saying is that if it had been a real disc submitted by the agency, it would clearly have the best and longest cues, instead of the ones that actually are most suitable for the purpose of the disc (i.e. the "bad & boring" (and short) ones) ?

@Per

lol.. do you really think this a "real" agency promo, (look track 6,7,8 with this track times). I listened to it and it contains really bad & boring tracks.. this cant be a real representation !

I don't think he (i.e. Nick Glennie-Smith and/or his agency) need to verify to anyone that they have those scores...

LOL (...of the person posting the previous comment)

I think someone wants to tell us with that compilation that he owns the recording sessions from Crimson Tide & Max Q....
