Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!
Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lol

Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me too
Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.

@ Hybrid

How do you know it's not complete? The film hasn't hit the cinemas yet!
Which idiot got the idea to release only 17 minutes of a longer score? I mean, 17 minutes is... short, it has almost no point in releasing it, just like Brothers in Arms 3's 15 minutes (which was even on disc!) :P
More minutes = more money... so why only 17 minutes if there is more to make money with?

(Well technically more tracks = more money with digital releases, but let's assume more score = more tracks).

OMG James Newton Howard is involved?? this is unbelievable.


Teddy B2011-09-30 22:09:16
There is one cue in the film, not on the cd soundtrack, that sounded very clearly - to me - like JNH.

**Spoilers**

It was when Alec says that he's leaving his wife and he needs a place to stay, but Meryl doesn't let him stay. It plays as everyone is leaving the property, driving away, etc.

Anyone else agree or disagree?

I loved the music as well as the movie! Why won't they release a CD Soundtrack? Not everyone has an IPOD, etc. I understand that the music written by Pereira & Zimmer resulted in about 6 short selections, but they could include the other songs that were heard in the movie as well. Other movie soundtracks have included the popular songs as well as the originally composed songs specifically for the movie. Please reconsider and release a CD Soundtrack from the movie, "It's Complicated"!!!

Maybe I'm mistaking, but I think that at the very beginning of the movie (like 1:37) Heitor Pereira and Ramin Djawadi are making a small cameo. They are the guys playing at the banquet...

Anyone noticed them?

very much the same as The Holiday soundtrack - loved it! All of Hans music is fab. Saw Sherlock Holmes and that was inspired.

When I saw The Da Vinci Code I wanted the music more than I wanted the film.

Thank you!

I love the score in this movie, but I keep having this feeling of I've heard this before! No wonder, he did the soundtrack to "The Holiday" both were great movies and the music was the perfect back drop for these films!

I APPLAUD the soundtrack and song selections for this film. As one of my favorites of all time is the soundtrack from Somewhere in Time......the movie in this film It's Complicated was moving me just as much as the storyline! I was so tuned in to both. The parallelisms of the movie and my current life, saddened me, and yet blew me away....there were SO MANY parallelisms in my own situation, that I was completed taken in by this films story line, and the music.....which empowered its presentation to a music lover like myself.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.....finally....some incredible music with chord changes that could be felt all the way down to the bottom of my heart!

Or Nancy didn't want so much music, remember: the director is the employer, the boss, so he or she decides what's happening and how much is happening.

@ Sylvos:
Option 1, he says so in his interview. I think Varèse turned it down because the score lacks minutes.
Releasing short scores is just... silly, at least, perhaps that's what Varèse thinks. The official reason says so actually.

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-25 00:00:00
Possible reasons:
1. The rest of the music was more of the same with one or two instruments added or taken out.
2. Hans wasn't happy about the way the rest of the music sounds like. (Based on these 6 cues, that's unlikely)
3. The rest of the cues were very, very short and not really album friendly.
4. Some silly legal issues.

Still curious about the thing with Varese and their "Insufficient music in the final cut of the film" excuse for canceling their album for this. And why did Hans turn to another label to get the download only release out? Varese's done quite a number of Download Only albums in the past.

mmm... yet another RC mystery. Guess Hollywood should make a movie about the things that are happening at this company, at some point. :-P

Can anyone confirm James Newton Howard's involvement in this? He's not listed on IMDb as contributing anything.
And I can't imagine why he would feel the need to work on it when there are already at least three composers, especially if these 17 minutes represent the entire score...

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2009-12-24 00:00:00
Damn guys don't you listen to interviews ???


HZ said there's 45/50 minutes of music in the film... That 16 min release is Hans' choice !


And about JNH, feel free to trust me or not, but it wasn't supposed to be made public in the first place, cause it's more "the help from a friend to a friend"...
