New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br> vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br><br><br>Strength and honor!<br><br>One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol
"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????
I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !
I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happy

@ Easy Rider

Right there with you buddy. I've been playing God Of War III all week. GOOD game but the score is AWESOME! I just kept thinking "Why the hell didn't Titans sound like this?" And GOWIII is molded in the RC sound as well.

Putting it simply, there is NO excuse for how UNCREATIVE and BLAND this score is.

Why not sing its praise on the page that is actually dedicated to Gods of War III on this website instead?
The purpose of your posts is not telling us how much you enjoy "hating", right?

Can anyone think of what Djawadi did right here? I think you're punishing him disproportionate to his crimes.

If everyone keeps complaining and saying no one should buy this, there wont be ANY score released in future. Big brother is watching you!!

Well Adrian, if a score is of such a low quality/creativity, I really wouldn't mind if this doesn't get released.

Then soundtrack fans could spend their money actually to something worth buying and listening instead of this Hans wannabe.

Iron Man was unlistenable and bad. This score, however, is listenable, but still bad. I hope next time we will get good and listenable score.

Djawadi, please compose great themes and not this kind of score which isn't memorable..

You think composers of calibre such as powell, mancina, rabin, glennie smith, jablosnky, badelt, gregson williams, is easy to come by. These are MV/RC Legends, you cant compare them to ramin, thats not fear to them.

@ Fraley

I've been a fan of the MV sound ever since I saw The Rock. So I don't hate the MV/RC sound, it's just that current batch of composers aren't nowhere as good as the old guys. Gregson-Williams, Powell, Mancina and Rabin used the MV sound to perfection but still managed to have an own musical identity. Add to that that they also managed to create an identity for the film they were scoring. While say Speed may have had a similiar sound to for instance The Rock, both scores really belonged to the films they were written for.
That's just not the case anymore. Clash of the Titans is interchangeable with say Season of the Witch. And Vantage Point could easily be used for Disturbia. And vice versa. I hear no difference between a Djawadi score or a Zanelli one, whereas I can easily hear the difference between a Powell one and a Mancina one or a score by Gregson-Williams.

How long is Ramin in the business? How long are the ''old'' composers busy?
Ramin is young and has to learn... But I don't think he did not do a decent job here.

And remember, perhaps Louis ASKED for a re-hash!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-13 00:00:00
While many of these scores are indeed cut from the same cloth, I think I could tell the difference between them. Djawadi favors the strings and electronics more than others. Jablonsky likes brass, and occasionally xylophones when he's feeling playful. Zanelli is a big woodwinds and percussion man, mainly of the ethnic variety. I don't really think they're as interchangeable as people say, except in some cases.

I'll take God of War III ANYDAY.

A FAR FAR better soundtrack than this boring retread that I've heard a million times before, This guy has no talent of his own clearly.! meh.

I agree Easy dude! The score for God Of War III is AWESOME unlike this epic fail.

Thomas Young reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-13 00:00:00
Yes, God Of War 3 has some really memorable themes and sounds a lot more epic and fit to the theme. The God Of War 3 soundtrack is composed by 3 or 4 different composers yet everything sounds great.

This is mainly composed by one composer and it sounds boring. It's like people here say. The new batch of composers like Zanelli, Orvasson, Djawadi, etc sound dull, boring and totally unoriginal. They just ape the real talented guys like Zimmer, Jablonsky, Powell, ...

Listen to How To Train Your Dragon. That's remote control to. But it brilliant, has great themes, superb orchestration and 1000 times more original then this crap.

Fraley reply Replies: 0 || 2010-04-12 00:00:00
@ DA (and Sarah, etc):
Why the hate? Pretty simple. Remote Control Productions and its predecessor, Media Ventures, essentually uses a formula to mass produce scores with a specific sound. This score follows that formula to the T. To collectors who have been in the market for a long while, such as Christian @, we have heard so many variations on this formula already that it is easy to get bored to tears with it. For listeners who have not heard the dozens of scores being aped here, it probably sounds pretty good. For listeners who have, they hear tracks like Scorpiox and think "AGAIN!?!?" It's also worth noting more ambitious scores/composers also often score the whole movie, as opposed to approaching it scene-by-scene. In other words, there is an over-arching structure that allows the music to develop and evolve as the film progresses. The rapid-fire, different composers for different scenes approach taken here essentially rules that out. It's a collection of cues that don't really have a lot to do with each other beyond including the same main theme.

All that said, I will admit to having something of a taste for the sounds of a MV/RC score. They are usually effective at drumming up excitement if you don't think too hard about the music, and CotT is no exception. The themes are appropriately heroic, and the orchestra isn't burried beneath the synthetic samples as badly as in most other RC/MV scores. Accepted for what it is - a stock MV/RC last-minute replacement score - it's pretty entertaining.

In short, if you are familiar with the RC/MV back-catalog of scores, and their tendency to reuse ideas bothers you, you will despise this score. On the other hand, if you don't already have a large collection of RC/MV scores, or don't mind the repetition of ideas, it's actually pretty good.

Very well said Fraley!

And although RC rehashes sometimes some stuff; in this score it is done very extremly. I think this is by far one of the least creative and orginal of RC scores ever.

If I take some lessons in Stormdrums and Hollywood Strings I can make also such a score. There is just no musical inspiration or creativity needed to make such a score. Just technical knowledge is enough.

I don't understand the hate for this score , it works well in the movie and on CD tpp , tracks like Argos (reminds me Tomb raider 1 the game snonority) - There Is A God In You - Perseus - Written In The Stars - Scorpiox (love the 1:40 part) - Eyes Down - Release the Kraken.
ok nothing grounbreaking but really fun and by the way I listen to Goldsmith, Williams, Poledouris, Barry, Shearmur,Folk,Silvestri,Gold,Cosma,Delerue ; if I enjoy the music there is nothing wrong by who it's composed.

@ Miles

I like Zimmer, Jablonsky and esp. Powell.

But the review of this shitty score is very accurate. It's a bad mish mash of already overused themes.

It may be fit for the movie but creativity is a big zero. Some videogames have even better scores.
