so great to watch this new interview. it confirmed how i felt about wonder woman and widows. it is the right thing to do.<br><br>Hans's comment on losing his voice took me by surprise though. dunkirk touched on a few techniques i wanted to see explored more. i know other composers did it before. but i think dunkirk did a better job at putting those elements together... hopefully there is be a similar movie in the near future : )Steve is clearly spending time with his family. He had a second child just a few months ago. I think he will eventually be back on the Bay Train. <br><br>And Lorne is the right choice for a "replacement". He's been involved in one way or another with the Bay movies for more than 10 years now. He's certainly not a surprising choice and I'm looking forward to the score. It's a movie that takes place all over the world, so I have big expectations for the music.Hans says he worked so hard to get WW1 to Rupert, but didn't he also recommend that they try a female composer?Balfe has constantly been brought in on Transformers movies , so great to see him working with Bay properlyApparently were in the wrong country :( If I could afford it, Id travel just to experience this.
Lorne is now listed on IMDB and Wiki as the composer of 'Six Underground'. Clearly Bay likes working with him. Good for Lorne.You're absolutely right. Play's over. Exit's that way. On your feet. Go!<br><br>Good knowing you.Steve is just trying to spend a little time with his family i think, he's not as busy as he used to be but i think it's cause he chooses that. Film Composing is an insanely time consuming job. I like Balfe a lot though.Huh. I like Jablosnky, but I really liked the 13 Hours score, so it's hard for me to complain.Maybe, Bay thinks Balfe is better than Jablonsky in terms of military tones and music.
Balfe is doing Michael Bays next movie !!! Whats happened with Jablonsky?Review widows: It's also scored by Hans Zimmer, which means it is immediately in the running for best score of the year...Blah Blah Blah...<br><br>Play's over, Shakespeare.Meta is right though...Hope it gets fixed, I love listening to the suites you add to scores here.
Nope.<br><br><br>Even if it wouldn't have helped, I guess ! lolArticle 13?Audio is down unfortunately.<br><br>Legal reasons... Nothing to do with Hans or any composer who have always been very supportive.<br><br>Maybe it'll return, maybe not...@Knight, it's not just you.Hybrid, all over the site there are no longer music extracts to listen to. For me at least, is it a universal thing?

The first minute of "Rock House Jail" is that Hans, NGS, or both? I know the track uses part of NGS' original theme, and Hybrid has made it sound like most of the track is a Hans cue. But that first minute is one I've always been curious about.


Hybrid Soldier2018-09-01 09:55:53
First 2 minutes of "Rock House Jail" is the cue "Tour's Over Bob", credited to Nick, Don Harper & Steven Stern.

So, it's Nick, Hans had nothing to do with that one... :)


Bayhem2018-09-01 11:08:55
Hans had nothing to do with that one
==================================


Very interesting. I've always thought that it was Hans. The piece is a pure Zimmer sound and style. Still, good to know who really did it. Props to Nick, Don and Steven.

Hello Dimitris,

Wow, Hybrid, I didn't know you had a top favorite!


Dimitris Krommidas2015-07-12 18:31:48
Well, a lot of people around the world have this score deep inside their hearts because back then, in 1996, it was the way that they discovered Hans Zimmer.
I am one of them.
Thank you mr.Zimmer.


Edmund Meinerts2015-07-13 18:22:30
You should thank Messrs. Glennie-Smith, Gregson-Williams et al s well, Dimitris... ;)

Mike reply Replies: 2 || 2014-02-10 00:29:53
The "Theme Idea" on NGS' page, is that the theme the director didn't like and made Hans replace? Because no offense to Hans, but I like NGS' theme better.


Ds2014-02-10 09:17:58
God, "The Rock" theme is one of my favorite HZ themes EVER. One of my favorite opening scenes, too. I wouldn't trade it for anything!


Mike2014-02-10 16:27:04
Oh, don't take that the wrong way: I love the Zimmer theme, too. ;)

MacArthur reply Replies: 4 || 2013-10-10 17:46:47
Hybrid are there any other scores like POTC1 where Zimmer came to a RCP guys rescue and did not get credited.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-10 19:01:38
Off the top of my head I can think of a couple: Armageddon (he helped on the Asteroid Chase cue), Iron Man (Driving with the Top Down is his, among other things...it seems he actually did quite a lot on that one) and Transformers 2 ("Decepticons Invade/Fallen on TV" cue from the complete score).


MacArthur2013-10-10 20:03:43
Thanks Ed. I did know that he did transformers 2 (The Fallen's Arrival) and 1 question do you like the Iron man score?


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-10 22:28:49
Not a huge fan. Pretty much the only thing I like about it is the general style, but that kind of orchestral rock stuff has been done SO much better by other composers (including Brian Tyler and John Debney, although ironically not particularly in their two scores for the franchise, but rather the Fast & Furious scores for Tyler and The Scorpion King for Debney). Djawadi's is really banal and simplistic and lacks energy to me. There's some decent themes in there ("Vacation's Over") but they're really underdeveloped. I haven't heard the complete score though, so I'm basing this on the album. Hell, I think Trevor Rabin would have made a better Iron Man score than Djawadi did. :p


MacArthur2013-10-10 22:41:34
Oh Wow. I never thought Rabin was that good. although i do agree about Djawadi he's not great his Clash of the Titans score was good (at least I thought)


One quick note I was doing a download and my iPod wiped my music clean. I mean nothing left except for one song that I had just put on it. do you know what might have happened. Cause I'm Baffled.

Did Zimmer do anything solo on this score

The amount of names on In the Tunnels is insane, lol.

Though there was a track in POTC1 that had a lot more names attached.

i cant help but wonder if curse of the black pearl drew from this score :P


Mike2013-05-15 21:03:01
lol, Curse of the Black Pearl drew from a LOT of previous Zimmer scores....The Rock, Crimson Tide, Gladiator, Drop Zone, and El Dorado to name a few. ;)

El Baradei reply Replies: 4 || 2013-01-13 17:52:21
This score is still one of the best scores of all time with maybe the best action theme of all time.

The Rock and Hans Zimmer are the reasons for me to love film scores.


El Baradei2013-01-14 09:55:19
By the way, did you know: the main theme for Ed Harris' character was composed by Hans Zimmer based on ideas by him and James Newton Howard.

10 years before Batman Begins the first collaboration between Zimmer and Howard.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-14 11:36:10
Oh there was one before that... Though not in composition.


El Baradei2013-01-14 19:14:21
Okay, and what was it?


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-14 20:50:42
Waterworld, where Hans gave JNH the MV samples library. :)

The Rock was a favor back, though from what I know I don't think JNH was involved in any way, it's more like Hans politely asked if he could copy James... haha

This soundtrack is great stuff.

But it and Crimson Tide sound a lot alike. Particularly Hummell Gets the Rockets.

I've been a big rock/heavy metal guy growing up, but more and more I see that this is true. . .but it is EXTREMELY slbtue. That's how I and many others have been deceived it seems innocent. But you research it and you realize that its roots are often evil and occult.Why did the Beatles's include Aleister Crowley on their Sgt. Peppers album?Why did Ozzy Osbourne dedicate a song to Crowley?Why did the Rolling Stones write Sympathy for the Devil ?Is ACDC's Highway to Hell really innocent?A while ago, I was happy to listen to it bobbing my head. One day I woke up. And these examples are classic examples, newer rock is often more bold in attacking truth and Jesus (band Slayer comes to mind). Can I choose to listen to that smut and have a testimony of Jesus?

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 2 || 2011-06-27 17:57:40
Hey, Hybrid, do you think we're ever going to get a who-composed-what detailing for this score? Seems like this is one that needs it the most (and that's saying something considering how big some of Zimmer's committees are!).

As far as I can guess, Zimmer composed the main theme and the first half of "Hummel Gets the Rockets", Gregson-Williams contributed to some of the more frenetic action cues (his ultra-kinetic percussion sound from the Tony Scott is evident in "The Chase") and Glennie-Smith did the rest, the "Jade" and "Fort Walton - Kansas" cues in particular sound like his.

But you probably know better than I do, so I'd love to hear what you know about this complicated situation. Thanks.

Oh yeah - AWESOME score. Probably the best late 90s MV action score there is!


Dakota2011-06-27 18:40:24
I second this! Or for the complete score as well


Gav2011-06-27 23:51:07
I think Don Harper is solely credited, at least in the credits, for The Chase.

This score is simply amazing- I've never seen/heard a sountrack that would fuse with the picture as well as The Rock does. Once you've seen the movie once or twice, you can actually only listen to the soundtrack and recall every single action scene accompanied by it's part of the score - you can almost follow every body move the actors make.
Simply amazing!
