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.

Don't warry Adrian!!! Thank you for your answer!!!
However: about Casi Divas: 1 milion of Dollars?!!! Wow!!!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-19 00:00:00
Well... no just ONE dollar, like the value of a macdonalds cheeseburger!
Type in google: Hans Zimmer opens heart for 'Divas'
(since i can't post direct links here).

The same with "An Everlasting Piece". But what about the regular fee?

Enrico ti ho aggiunto!!

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-17 00:00:00
I certainly hope so!

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-16 00:00:00
Maybe will happen that Hans Zimmer will win something more as happened with "The Dark Knight"...in fact the first soundtrack of "Batman Begins" didn't win anything, but "The Dark Knight" won the Grammy Award!!!
Could you think that this soundtrack will win something?! I hope it...

Regards Enrico.

Does anyone else think I60 BM (or at least the sample of it) is vaguely similar to Zimmer's theme from "The Rock"?

Black Smoke sounds kind of like "Frost/Nixon" on steroids :)

Less than a month left!

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-16 00:00:00
Yes, the hints of frost/nixon are very noticable hehe

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-16 00:00:00
Especially the electronic percussion.

I posted the location already: but here's the web address:

http://www.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/angelsdemons/

When you get there, click on "Sneak Peek," and select the size you wnat to view it in (you'll need Quicktime). Hope this helps!

Lastly, in response to PJ2: actually, Angels & Demons is a prequel to the Da Vinci Code, although the film presents it as a sequel.

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-15 00:00:00
There's no significant continuity between the books (they're two different stories with only Langdon in common) so this prequel-to-sequel isn't a bad idea IMO. I actually like this because A&D is more action filled and tense than DVC.

this 2 minutes long sneak peek is awesome , would have been a wonderful trailer in the theaters (no dialogue , no sound just the music and the images : excellent)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-15 00:00:00
God Particle sounds indeed really really good!
Let's hope 503 is more than just a ''re-make'' of Chevaliers... I mean it sounds descent, but... I was hoping of a new ingenenious and revelating theme...! Let's hope the cello has a place too... lol

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-15 00:00:00
I immediately take back what I just said about 503... Love the sneak peak!

This will be one of the best of the year!

Wonderful music but in some tracks (4 & 5) there are too many electronics elements? Am I right?!
However there are a lots of new ideas!!! Starting from the 1°...amazing...

the revers of 503 is EOS ... and in german that means 'Morgenröte' or in english 'red sky in the morning' ;-)

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-14 00:00:00
I don't know what the first track title means, but "503" refers to something important in the book. It'll be too spoilerific to say it here... ;)

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-14 00:00:00
What is the meaning of the first and the last track?!
Thanks...
