I really liked Gary Go's Friend Request from 2016 too.My choices for Avatar 2 would be:<br>Powell or Newton Howard^ 2018 I meanSteve really knocked it out of the park with “Nightmare”. I always appreciate horror scores that balance the use of themes with the more atonal music you normally get.<br><br>And the last horror score I remember loving was John Carpenter’s 2019 Halloween score. A great blend of old and new, especially for Carpenter fans like myself.@Knight Powell’s last score was HTTYD3....
@superultramegaa<br><br>Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site.I'm a huuuuuuge fan of the Freddy character & movies, and I really liked this remake, it didn't deserve the reputation it has... Especially when you compare to Freddy 2 or 6... lol<br><br>Music is great, best horror score Steve did with Amityville. But I also liked his more ambient horrors like Texas Chainsaws or Friday the 13th or Hitcher. But I can understand he probably wanted to step out of that genre and not end up being the new Harry Manfredini typecast !"I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style"<br><br>Well that's the thing, if you think "TF style" thinking of TF1 & 2, then it's not exactly completely Steve. So I stick to my comment... :) lolI recently saw both this movie and Friday the 13th (2009). And I have to say that Steve did a pretty good job with the music. Yes, I'm aware of the complaints and the whole "remakes suck" mentality. But still......I advice you to revisit these scores. You might be pleasantly surprised. <br><br>Speaking of horror scores.......I realized these days that it's been a while since we've heard a TRULY memorable and effective horror score. Or maybe it's just me and I've missed some really good ones...<br><br>Your thoughts on the matter, folks?^ Yet he’s still not quite a household name like some of his peers. HTTYD, Bourne, and Solo have all given him great exposure, but I feel like the general public doesn’t quite recognize him on the same level as Zimmer, Giacchino, or Williams.
Many thanks Hybrid!John Powell's last score was for a Star Wars movie, I don't think you could get any more mainstream exposure than that.So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score<br>--------------------------<br><br>There you go. Exactly how I expected it to be. They were simply helping each other. We've seen it multiple times before with other big scores.<br><br><br>Thanks for clearing it up.I wouldn't say "Battlefield" sounds nothing like Steve, it is pretty in line with his TF style, but yeah, I definitely see the Lorne involvement in there. Interesting though, our first official additional composer credit on this score!John Powell would be an amazing choice, if only to get him more mainstream exposure. <br><br>The thing is, if you strip away the drums, sound design, and harsh-mixing Tom is a actually a pretty gifted “classical” composer imo. His string writing has always impressed me, and seeing his use of woodwinds in Alita definitely proved that he can write outside of the mold Hollywood had put him in post-Mad Max.<br><br>Avatar 2 is most likely going to need a pretty diverse score, if the first one is any indicator. James Horner combined traditional orchestra, tribal drums, ethnic elements, electronics, and masculine action writing. All of which I could see Tom doing quite well.
Chrono order goes like this :<br><br>Dublin 1996<br>Driving<br>Deceit<br>Second Warning<br>First Warning<br>Research<br>Conversations<br>The Beating<br>Traynor Lies<br>Never Show Your Fear<br>Preparations<br>The Killing<br>Bad News<br>The Funeral<br>One More Day<br><br>But some tracks have cues edited together, and some titles are not exactly perfect lol...Atli is fine in Iceland, maybe he just doesn't want to look for trouble anymore... :)Lorne did work on this score. At the very end, when the film (and therefore, the score) was getting butchered by editors to shorten it, there was very little time to rework the score to adapt it to the new cut. So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score, but Battlefield is indeed a LB cue (it sounds nothing like SJ).<br><br>Not the first time this happened. Lorne extensively worked on TF1 & 2 (credited), but also helped (uncredited) on TF3 (there again, his assistant back then Andrew K. was credited).Alright, that's ^^ a bit too far, but I agree that there's not enough evidence to really support the theory. The only compositions that seem like Balfe might have had a hand in are the various reprises of "Bumblebee" (aka the Journey theme) that was always rumored to be co-composed by Balfe, and the big choral section in "Your Voice" when the knights begin attacking Optimus, as that is also a progression I associate heavily with Balfe's involvement in the first 2 scores. But that's still not enough to prove that he was involved.<br><br>By the way Bayhem, I don't believe that John Williams or Howard Shore have lied about doing their work by themselves. John Williams has worked with William Ross and probably others, but I don't think they're lying when they say they've done a score themselves. They seem like they can compose on their own just fine.Yep, if "deserving" existed, Atli would've gotten many more movies than he currently does.

easily one of the best 2008 score

Did anyone noticed that the guitar cue when Hancock and Mary are dying is similar to Powell's showreel's "Music for the End of the World - Face, Hope and Charity", with a different arrangement ?

It's really interesting, because John Powell used many of the demos from his 1998's showreel in his career during the last 10 years (and especially from his "Music for the End of the World".
This is the case for Antz, Chicken Run, Just Visiting, Hancock and now Bolt ! A great part of his career is made out of this showreel's ideas.

iluminat I guess you're talking about the sound when he's alone in his trailer... It's my favourite too :p
It's called : Rachel's - Water From the Same Source
Enjoy

I don't know if it's going to be unreleased score or a song, but nothing from that scene is on the soundtrack.

As Cloud mentioned, check IMDB.

The one piece of unreleased music that stood out to me was the movie version of "The Trailer". Totally different from what's on the CD and much, much better.

Amazing soundtrack, as always from one of my fave composers! I was just bummed to see the cue with the cello is not in it, that sort of mellow one that happens about 1/3rd into the movie...

This soundtrack is very exciting. Great work, oh yes. It´s been a pleasure, Mr. Powell.

Lono, the cue you mention (the Superman knock-off) is unreleased.

Lono reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-21 00:00:00
Anthony - thanks for your comment, but I actually meant the music that starts before the Superman-esque cue. It is more of a low pitched growling affair that builds as the robbers are shooting at the police, then ends on the shot of the robber holding the deadman switch. The generic superhero cue starts a few seconds after this.

I guess it's fated to remain unreleased also though... Shame. Powell excels in that vein of suspense/tension cues, a la Face/Off.

Lono reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-20 00:00:00
There is a cue in the film that starts when Hancock is in prison and is told he has a phone call from the Chief of Police, builds while he is shaving, then bridges into the siege outside the bank. This was my favourite piece of music in the whole score, yet it is not on the soundtrack album. Does anyone have any information?

Thanks in advance,

Lono

The Moon and The Superhero is gonna be one of the best Powell tracks of the year, I can tell. The rest of the score is pretty good too, though it's not really the kind of stuff I like to play a lot. 3.5 out of 5 I guess.

Peter reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-02 00:00:00
The beginning of that excerpt of track 19 reminds me a bit too much of Elfman's Spider-Man score, but other than that it sounds like a great score.
