Ha! As I always suspected, EDI's Sacrifice was co-written by an MV/RC guy. It was just too obvious...<br><br>It's weird to see BT's electronic/transe sound mixed up with a classic MV/RC sound, but I kinda like it. I admit, when I first heard the score I wasn't terribly impressed (aside from Thailand and EDI's Sacrifice), but now I'm warming up to it. The Rabin/Zimmer influence is quite obvious, so that's a good reason to give it a listen. <br><br>Come to think of it, BT needs to do a score with Junkie XL. Now THAT would be a great combo. They should team up for the next Mad Max movie. It will be a madhouse of a score. lol.Hybrid doesn't like the FYC because of how much it butchers Steve's original themes and doesn't include additional composer credits. I believe that was the reason.The FYC score was complete. And it's out since november last yearIs there a complete score out there? If not, don't be surprised there's nothing here yet. Sometimes it takes years before a complete score listing pops on this site.Why no listing here for the complete score?
Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.
@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that timei saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?
Yeah that is true, can’t argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does “Calypso Must Be Released” sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.@MrTweedy<br>That’s totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>It’s funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. It’s the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the “rock’n’roll” sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!

was harry ever in talks to do narnia 3 or was he scrapped from the get go?


Mike2014-08-01 20:25:11
He was scrapped, and he said in an interview that it was entirely because of the new director, but that he had no hard feelings. He only did the first two because of his relationship with that Andrew Adamson, so when the director was changed, it was logical that HGW would go. He did say, though, that he would be disappointed if Andrew Adamson returned for Narnia 4 and asked for Arnold instead. ;)

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-10-09 22:54:34
I know Stephen Barton did Miraz Crowned, but did he also do Journey to the How ("In the Boat" on the complete score, I believe it's called)?. It starts out with a sound IDENTICAL to the beginning of All Ghillied Up in COD4.

MacArthur reply Replies: 17 || 2013-10-01 21:38:19
Kinda bummed that Gregson-Williams didn't use the cue from the Battle in the First Narnia.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-01 21:50:58
He did! Bits and pieces of it are all over the action music in Prince Caspian. Plus, why would you want him to reuse the same music?


MacArthur2013-10-01 23:16:30
I don't want him too. but too use that would just have been cool like the Raiders march use in all the Indiana Jones soundtracks.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-01 23:50:28
But the Raiders March is a theme, not an entire seven minute cue. I wouldn't want the "Desert Chase" to pop up in Last Crusade, for instance. As for themes from the first Narnia, HGW carries them over plenty.


MacArthur2013-10-02 00:02:11
Well I do know that I don't want the the Desert chase the whole time either I'm talking the cue from 0:37 too 1:17 that particular Arrangement is awesome and I would have liked to have it in the second film. But you can't always get what you want.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 00:10:02
Ah, I see. Yeah, I love that moment too. Still, overall I think Prince Caspian is a better score than the one that came before it (and after it, for that matter).


Mike2013-10-02 00:24:07
Prince Caspian for me is one of those scores where I like the album better than the full score, since the album highlights the new material. Every single time I see that movie, I feel like it suffers from a bit too much reuse/temp tracking. For example, the way they reused the "White Witch" and "Evacuating London" cues when the Pevensies enter Narnia, or the way they reused...one of the cues which I don't remember the name of...when Lucy first saw Aslan. There were other examples as well, but I would have to either listen to the score or watch the movie to remember them precisely.

Unrelated, I found it a shame that several minutes of the castle raid sequence (before the album track plays) were nowhere on the album.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 00:36:46
Yeah, I agree Mike. There's a few too many cues just tracked in from the first one...not nearly as bad as On Stranger Tides or The Dark Knight Rises, though. And the new material is good, especially some of the action music.

Good point about the first half of the castle raid sequence. Can't believe that was missing from the album compared with some of the tracked stuff they did put on. Reepicheep's little muted trumpet theme is brilliant! Ultimately I think both the complete score and the album are lacking, and the best thing is to kinda build your own album out of the best bits from the complete. ;)


MacArthur2013-10-02 00:38:39
Oh yeah Caspian Is a great score.


Mike2013-10-02 16:24:29
Edmund, are you judging TDKR off the album? Because the album is most of the reused music in the movie (sadly; awful presentation of the score). Within the film there is a lot of new material, and I'd say the reused stuff is the minority of the score.


MacArthur2013-10-02 17:41:29
I love the Dark Knight Rises Score. And I don't think it repeated music too much......Now POTC4 did.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 17:46:12
A lot of the action cues like "Batman Chased" seem like they're cobbled together from the action music in BB and TDK. But mostly my issue is with the finale ("Rise" on album) which is basically a weaker rehash of "A Dark Knight". But I've also heard the complete score and it still strikes me as though there's too much tracking in. Sure there's some new material, and it's better than On Stranger Tides (to be fair, everything's better than On Stranger Tides), but it's still a disappointment I think. The vast majority of the new material is in the suites Zimmer wrote and a lot of that stuff didn't even make the film, which makes me wonder how much Nolan is to blame as well.


Mike2013-10-02 18:01:16
I would suggest giving it another listen. The only really notable rehashes are, as you said, "Batman Chased" and "Rise". There's also "Remember Where You Parked It?" and "On Thin Ice - Batman Returns", which are rearrangements of old stuff. But if you look at the cue sheet, listen closely to the score, or just watch the movie, a good 75% of the stuff is new. Still, I think Begins was the strongest of those scores from a purely enjoyable standpoint. TDK felt very polished, but the Joker music and a lot of the other "noise" tracks made it a weak listen sometimes.

It is a shame, though, especially in the case of TDKR's "Rise", that they just regurgitated TDK's finale in weaker form. They should have used the final few minutes of the Wayne Manor suite.


Mike2013-10-02 18:04:05
EDIT: There's also "For Old Times' Sake", "Handing Over the Reactor", and "Chasing the Convoy East". As for Nolan being to blame, I'm sure that's part of it. He was initially going to temp TDK for the most part, but Hans and James insisting on writing at least SOME new themes.


MacArthur2013-10-02 18:04:46
Was there new Batman stuff in the Wayne Manor Suite.

and I thought that On thin Ice was a nice new Arrangement. It was really refreshing to me.


Mike2013-10-02 18:06:39
Give the Wayne Manor suite a listen when you have 20 min to spare, MacArthur. Many new themes in there. And btw, I'm not referring to the album track "On Thin Ice", which is indeed new. I'm referring to the cue from the complete score when they light up the Bat-signal and Batman appears out of the shadows.


MacArthur2013-10-02 18:11:37
Ok.....Haha, Thanks I'll do that.


Mike2013-10-02 18:14:54
And just for the record....beginning at 6:58 in that suite is awesome. The arrangement of it in the movie was less exciting.

MacArthur reply Replies: 16 || 2013-09-24 17:08:35
One quick thing why didn't Harry Gregson-Williams do the score for the 3rd Narnia?


Mike2013-09-24 17:33:21
I believe it had to do with the director of the third one usually collaborating with David Arnold.


MacArthur2013-09-24 18:59:30
Odd.....Cause Gregson-Williams did it better


MacArthur2013-09-24 19:01:00
Mike you catholic or something


Alex2013-09-24 21:34:33
I disagree. I thought David Arnold's score was far, far superior. To each his own...


Edmund Meinerts2013-09-24 22:17:01
Yeah, Michael Apted directed Dawn Treader and he had previously done, among other things, The World is Not Enough with Arnold. I think Arnold did a fine job but Harry's scores were among the first I ever heard so I ultimately prefer them by a hair (especially Prince Caspian here).


Mike2013-09-24 22:52:47
I am Catholic, yes, but that relates to this how?


Mike2013-09-24 22:55:59
And yes, I agree, HGW did it better.


MacArthur2013-09-25 02:05:58
Sorry Mike I saw you say Praise Jesus. So I was Just wondering. lol.


Bioscope2013-09-25 05:21:31
I am not Catholic, and I praise Jesus everyday.


MacArthur2013-09-25 06:34:14
No that's good don't take offense to it please. I wasn't meaning it in a bad way. I'm Actually a Christian myself so I also praise Jesus every day. I was Actually named after the Narnia books.

Just saw the movie, and as usual there are once again a lot of good stuffs from the movie missing. Gotten ready for my ranting? ;D

*******!! SPOILERS ALERT !!********

* The opening credits and first half of the Prince Caspian Flees sequence

* Brawl at the Station sequence, arrival to Narnia (if I remember correctly, it's totally unreleased)

* Caspian's flight through the forest with Ninambrik (?) and the badger and saving the latter from some Telmarines (great percussion)

* The whole portion of the Pevensies' travel through Narnia after Lucy is saved from a wild bear

* Caspian rallies his troops in the cave (?) and tells them he's the rightful heir

* Lucy's dream sequence (a very beautiful, long piano/woodwind driven piece, I cannot understand why they left it out. Two thumbs up to HGW on this one!! :-)

* Pevensies' first encounter with Caspian and Peter and the latter's subsequent duel (as far as I remember this was a great piece)

* The Army salutes Caspian and the Pevensies' as they arrive at Aslan's How; this featured a GREAT reprise of the theme from the first movie and reduced me nearly to tears when I saw it was unreleased.

* The full first half of the Raid On The Castle sequence (when Peter, Caspian and others actually infiltrate the Castle and take down the Telmarine guards)

* Repicheep's muted trumpet theme (this really pissed me off that they didn't release it!!)

* A part of the second half of the Raid On The Castle sequence when Peter escapes on a Griffin from Miraz's castle

* Miraz Arrives - the Telmarine army arrives at Aslan's How before the Duel parlay scene. This is a faster, percussion-driven version of "Miraz Crowned"

* Parts of "Battle At Aslan's How" and the second half of "Door In The Air" seem to be missing, although I'm not sure.

*******!! SPOILERS END !!**********

There must be more, surely too, but these are the ones that were stuck in my head after seeing the movie. So let's keep our hopes up for a bootleg! ;-)
