Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

Boom Shakalaka is actually a pretty epic track, if you can get past the "muppets singing" part. ;)

And T-Mann don't forget this one as well for 1996... ;)


BTW I added some credits...


And there's also The Preacher's Wife, which is also an awesome score (for a terribly lame movie lol)...


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-10 20:28:45
So I guess the rumors I heard about this being a mostly HGW score were untrue...


T-Mann0362014-05-10 20:29:10
I won't "fuggedaboutit", Soldier. Thanks.

Hybrid Soldier2014-05-10 20:33:01
Well Ed there's qui a lot of unreleased cues, but Harry did a lot... Surely not more than Hans, stuff like The Map or Rescue are just pure zimmerisms... :)

This score is so much fun.


Poe2014-05-10 23:48:33
CAPTAIN SMOLLET (COMPASS)

Does this mean it is Captain Smollet (cue title), which is Compass on the OST?


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-10 23:57:11
Haha Poe for a minute I didn't remember... It's not the cuesheet, just me doing titles watching the film... But yes, you are right !! ;)

amazing how little-talked about this score is. quite good imo.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2013-09-12 17:16:35
"Rescue" sounds like a weird mix of "The Battle" from Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Crimson Tide.


MacArthur2013-09-12 17:26:10
Agreed! I also hear The Peacemaker in there a little bit

I love this score and with the addition of the muppets great stuff. Love how Zimmer uses his brass in all the Muppet songs. Awesome!

Muppet Treasure Island is mu all-time FAVORITE musical. I got hooked (sorry) when my boys started watching as toddlers. I will never givie up my tape - unless I get the DVD. I can sing 'Profession Pirate', 'Cabin Fever', and 'Boom Shakalaka' in my sleep. (A skill I learned as a Mom - cap nap through the movies the kids are watching for the 23rd time.) I love it, love it, and will continue to love it. Perhaps 'Boom Shakalaka' could be played at my wake someday.
