Dunno if this is a troll post or a legit one... but I do agree to an extent. Both Mortal Engines and Alita show a HUGE improvement in Tom’s compositional technique, regardless of Conrad Pope’s contribution (which I’m sure still has something to do with it.) <br><br>I actually enjoy his early works (300, Point Break, Run All Night, Divergent) but you can definitely hear the vast difference in quality over time, and as Tom grows as a composer I’m sure his future scores will be the same way.5 years and it sounds like a blend of bvs and fury road. both of which come after it.Woah, this sounds outdated already, like a bad 90s video game. For the record, it was composed 4 years ago. This fetishization of technology over compositional technique is absolutely ridiculous. <br><br>Now, Tom has seen the errors of his ways and hired some actual orchestrators (not the RCP clown bunch) and Mortal Engines and Battle Angel Alita are actually excellent scores. They show that he masters compositional technique to the hilt. This early stuff - I suspect it will be buried soon. <br>Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.
I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cuesArtemisia Suite = History of Artemisia <br>Greek Action Suite = Marathon <br>Xerxes Rebirth Suite = From Man to God King<br>Greek Sacrifice Suite = ???<br>Artemisia’s Childhood Suite = Artemisia’s Childhood<br>Greek Attack Suite = Greeks on Attack<br>Queen Gorgo Suite = Queen Gorgo<br>Xerxes Thoughts Suite = Xerxes Thoughts<br>Greek History Suite = History of the Greeks<br>Greek Victory Suite = Greeks Are Winning<br><br>Hope this helps! :-)
Hybrid can you tell us what album cues are the suites ?!well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be releasedCool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...Hey hybrid soldier! You mentioned on the ghost in the shell page about white fang so I came here! Can you give us a list of the cues as they appear in the film please? The Basil Poledouris cues and the Hans Zimmer cues please
I imagined it ... hopefully this time Max Ritcher does not give him a lollipop and refuses to launch his musicYes Unbreakable.
<br>Exactly like White Fang. Have Poledouris write a score, then HZ do another, then pick what you want from both.
<br>Ghost In The Shell was kinda different...In the credits of the movie, Max Ritcher appears as the Main Composer, meanwhile, Lorne appears as Additional MusicI find that it would be best to accredit both and launch the two soundtracks and all happy.Hybrid implies that Max Ritcher's score was rejected, and that Lorne made a new one and in the end, the best of both has been used.  I am right?

"Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns 'n Roses is featured, but I don't know much more than that. Somebody's going to have to check out its iMBD Soundtrack Listing if they want to find out without seeing the film.

wow I really like this one - the love theme is really good, and the cello setting of it in rejection in the rain is beautiful. Some great brassy action music throughout, funky comedy cues, and the end of evil lair is awesome. It's Hans back to his old colourful fun big orchestra style score for the first time in ages. It doesn't have memorable themes like madagscar and kung fu panda, but it's a very enjoyable listen.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-27 00:00:00
This just in: iTunes has released the soundtrack early! Anyone who wants to buy it or listen to samples can now do so. It seems that the MySpace track we thought was "Crab Nuggets" is actually "Giant Blue Head." Regardless, the score as a whole, based on the samples, certainly sounds interesting. The string work in particular is quite nice, especially on "Rejection in the Rain." I'm going to wait until I see the movie before making a choice, but my interest is definitely aroused.

@ Aldan

"British composer is always better than american composer( i'm not racist.i'm from indonesia)."

I don't think I really agree with that statement. Yes, there are plenty of great British composers (Powell, H-GW, David Arnold, Patrick Doyle, John Barry to name a few), but the two arguably greatest film composers are both American: Williams and Goldsmith.

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-26 00:00:00
Is up to pixar then. John Powell for Brave. I bet the result will be far better than HTTYD and not just for Brave, but to other Pixar movies in the future. British composer is always better than american composer( i'm not racist.i'm from indonesia).

no doubt for the quality of the score but the character design is UGLY (look at girl...)

Mark reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-26 00:00:00
I bet Powell will work for Pixar eventually. He already worked for Disney and provided a great score, so I don't imagine why they wouldn't want him back.

And specially after he wins the Oscar for HTTYD, he's gonna become a very hot composer!

Feliz Lombriz reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-25 00:00:00
Well, it'd be interesting for sure and maybe make a good album, but really I'm not sure how well Zimmer or HGW or the like would fit with Pixar onscreen. I'm not a big Newton fan, but the Toy Story scores melded into the movies perfectly, even if they didn't make incredible stand alone albums. Any other composer might've drawn too much attention to themselves.

And I DID get goosebumps from Giaccino's Up score, just as I did with HTTYD. I didn't think much of the soundtrack before seeing Up, but seeing the montage music, "Married Life," along with the film--that was wonderfully done. I don't think anyone else could've done it better.

I definitely agree with you about John Powell though! I would LOVE to see his efforts scoring something from Pixar. I feel like a project like that could push him to new heights. In the end though I don't pick the projects, I just get to sit back and watch. But we can dream, I suppose. :)

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-25 00:00:00
Shrek, Kung fu panda, HTTYD are exceptions. Well the rest , is purely bad. Chicken Run was an Aardman production. Dreamworks( still original DW) just the distributor.

I don't think Randy Newman was a great composer. His score in Toy story 3 was abstractly bad and also i don't get that ghostbump gigling feeling for Up's music as i felt for HTTYD's. Giacchino can stay at pixar, but the newmans must be retired and then, bring powell, zimmer, and harry williams in. Lasseter had worked with powell in bolt( as executive producer, i know ), why he don't want to work together with him again?.
If media venture guys work for pixar's movies, i will guarantee you that they're oscarcontender.( i never trust oscar's pick for best composer. Horton Hears a Who and KFP score were really oscar worthy at that time). The point is, Bring media venture guys to pixar( looking to you Zimmer, the root of the problem is you. You refused Stanton's invitation to work in FD and then for DWA for to not letting zimmer's guys to work with pixar)

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-20 00:00:00
I don't think Zimmer and Powell were wasted on Kung Fu Panda, or Powell and Gregson-Williams on Chicken Run.

Bou reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-18 00:00:00
why media venture's composer always compose the music of DWA's movies? why they don't compose music for pixar movies?" : pehraps because Pixar works with some of the best composers like Michael Giacchino and Randy Newman and because it works very well (Oscar for Up score)

their talent was wasted.( except for HTTYD).
anyway, do you think Powell is a perfect fit for pixar's celtic based movie, brave?

It all depends on taste in the end. I know for my personal taste that I never like Hans' soundtracks for romantic comedies or animated movies. They might work with the movie, but I don't enjoy to listen to them by themselves. I know it will be the case with this movie as well. But I understand that Hans wants diversity in his job and likes to do different genres, so I'm totally fine with it.

I don't think I've heard enough to proffer good judgment yet, but the samples sound quite promising--"Crab Nuggets" and "Tightenville (Hal's Theme)" are effective comedic pieces, while "Stars and Tights" segues into a nice heroic motif, and "Mel-On-Cholly" has a good action tempo. Here's hoping the entire score lives up to expectations!

Samples on the soundtrack's Myspace:

The first two samples sound like pretty run-of-the-mill comedy stuff. But Stars and Tights and Mell-On-Cholly both sound promising. Ollo could be good too. I'll have to check this one out.
