Some Sky Hunter extracts in here !<br><br>I hope the OST will actually come out, will let you know when I get any info !look what I found www . change.org/p/warner-bros-zack-snyder-s-director-s-and-tom-ho lkenborg-s-score-for-home-release-e90fef07-11c6-4a9a-9ae8-37 5c7717dafa@Gotham Rogue  That's what I think exactly. And when the complete score of BvS gets released/leaked we could have enough music for filling all the moments in the JL. <br>If they had kept MoS theme, I think people wouldn't be so angry at Elfman.The CD has been shipped finally!Ok HERE GOES...<br><br>THE FILM - a mixed bag that takes advantage of it's characters but fails as a compelling narrative and has a villain with so much backstory and potential from the comics and merely turns him into a typical TV villain of the week who amounts to very little.<br><br>THE SCORE - haha honestly if it weren't for Wonder Woman's first shot and the epic scene at 2:40 in "Final Battle" you would swear there was no score composed because Mr. Elfman's boring, generic and STRONG THEME lacking score is completely buried and forgettable.<br><br>Everyone on this site will agree that when Hans, Junkie and co. compose... THEY  let you know they are there and mean business.<br><br><br>I love Firefly, Serenity and Avengers 1 but FUCK JOSS WHEDON FOR REPLACING JUNXIE XL.
i swear people, whoever they are, and are rating soundtracks have not understood this music.<br><br>oh by the way hybrid, my man, you are wrong too! i am no movie dude, and i have enjoyed every single soundtrack without watching any of them movies! for me, it's the soundtrack that draw me to the movie...Olive i love your pseudonym : ) i wrote that comment in a rush, i was overwhelmed by the music!<br><br>listen to the latest soundtracks by the remote control people, slow each of them a tad bit, and let me know if you still don't understand : )this is my world!oh noes can't find that page!?Themes*
Hybrid, shortly after BvS was released I read that zimmer had written themes/motifs for the justice league characters (Flash, Aquaman and cyborg) and that junkie would use those in his justice league score. <br><br>Was that the case and is there a half completed score by junkie containing some unheard zimmer genes?I don't think everybody thinks it's bad you just have to look at the development of the franchise. In the first pirates we got very nice melodys and tunes that are still legendary and so they set the tune for all the other pirates movies. In the second one we got a much darker yet very good developed score that has again new themes for new characters but uses themes from the first one as well. Then the third movie came along and everybody can think about the film what he wants but the music... man the music from the third one is really the cherry on the top of the entire franchise cause here we got all themes in new majestic versions plus one of the most beautyful love themes ever. So now you would think "Ok, I guess by judging by the development, the next one will be at least as great as the last one" but instead of this case we just got old themes in flat versions and the music is not bad but it just has not this kind of drive like the others. For sure if this score would have been the first one, the crowd would have reacted differently but hey, the movie wasn't that good as well so I guess it all equals out :DBecause they mixed several passages of past scores into scenes completely disconnected from those for which the music was composed at first. There is a chase scene with the music for the maelstrom. The love theme for Will and Elisabeth comes up without either of them being in the movie or in scenes that nerver mention their names. The same with the theme for Beckett. And half of the commercial CD was remixes of DJsCan I ask why everybody is so negative about this score.<br>I actually really love it. New themes for Spaniard, Mermaids and Blackbeard are good.<br>Okay, Hans re-used stuff from the previous 3 but it's still a great score.<br><br>Why does everybody else think it's bad? Would somebody please explain this to meWell said. Itís not a terrible score by any means, but the lack of continuity is incredibly disappointing. There were so many times in the movie that practically screamed for Hansí themes. The only point I heard one was the Krypton theme for (maybe) 15 seconds and that was just an insert from a previous film. Iíd love to do a fan project once the movie is released and insert music from Man of Steel/BvS and see how it changes the feel of this film.
YFM, your work is awesome. Long time lurk-listener. Looking forward to this,Bah leave me alone, I still need a few years to overcome the fall of House DC... What a horrible movie that JL was, I can't get over it... lolIf you love these peoplegeneral zod : )After listening to this score a few times, I am starting to enjoy it. It's not fantastic, but it's not absolutely horrible, either. While I am very disappointed that Zimmer didn't score the film, and that Elfman didn't preserve the series' music continuity very well, I feel the score does hold up fairly well on its own. It introduces some nice motifs, and honestly, hearing the old Batman theme again is awesome, especially in tracks like "Then There Were Three" and "The Final Battle". Some may think it's out of place, but I feel it fits this iteration of the character. But then, Elfman gets lazy with some of the tracks. The opening of "The Amazon Mother Box" sounds like Elfman's theme for "Hulk", while the motif for the Justice League team is very reminiscent of the Avengers theme motif. <br><br>On the other hand, hearing the original Superman theme feels a bit odd - I love that theme, but the joyousness that Williams put into it doesn't fit this version of the character. Zimmer's amazing theme means so much in this series, and Elfman didn't reprise it once. Elfman did briefly reprise a trumpet rendition of Wonder Woman's theme, which was nice, but I personally expected to hear it a little more. And it made me even more confused as to why he didn't reprise other themes. <br><br>Personally I don't think Elfman was the best choice to score the film, but I don't think he did a horrible job. I would've loved to have heard Zimmer's score, considering the amazing work he's done for the series. Hopefully in the future, the themes he composed will be reprised more.

"Does anyone hear any choral work in this release or Body of Lies?"

"Kill No Cop" has some choral bits, and some unreleased cues do as well.

Does anyone hear any choral work in this release or Body of Lies? There is a small choir ensemble listed in the booklet.

somebody should write to marc streitenfeld or the movie comapny and say that people around the world want a more complete score. this isnt the first time, body of lieas and hannibal also got som realy amazing soundtracks wich isnt in the orginal score or in bootlegs

Dawn reply Replies: 0 || 2009-01-19 00:00:00
Lasse, why looking for a fake bootleg as it is... well... fake ?
And bootlegs, as they are bootlegs, have pretty unpredictable "releases" : sometimes they appear before the commercial CD, sometimes it is 3 months later, sometimes 10 years later... and sometimes they even get lost in the limbos of years...
You can't predict anything. And by the way, you cannot rip the music only from a DVD, you always get all the sound effects with it.

I thought there was like 50 minutes of score? Not this 39 minute score. Ugh oh well, the score is really unique.

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2008-02-20 00:00:00
I'm gonna buy it anyway because I think the score is great no matter how little of it there is. I bet it's the same stuff we have on the unofficial promo release, but you still gotta show support.

I agree with Kaya, It seems very short on playing time, I can't see the value in adding this to my collection.

It's amazing to see that they're feilling the CD with source music instead of the score. hehehe

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2008-02-07 00:00:00
I still can't believe how little score is here. I read somewhere he recorded like 118 minutes for this movie or something.
