He is scoring to Mortal Kombat reboot movie, I saw that news from film music reporter, but mortal Kombat 1995 score was my favorite score.@Evenstar Original Movie Picture Score? lul. Usually it's called Motion Picture but ok.<br><br>No not always. I have a lot of scores where it is on the front of the booklet. Especially when an album with songs was released. So that the laypersons don't get confused, but still always manage not to look through, you can see on Amazon.Mark Mancinas Score for the First - Good!<br>Trevor Rabin for the second - Fantastic Great Action Score I LOVE IT! Steve Jablonsky work too on it! The Dr. Dre Music in this too..<br><br>Lorne Balfe to the third - meeehhh buuuuhhh!!<br>======================<br><br><br>I agree about the first two scores. They're very different but equally as good. I know that some people are critical of the BB2 score (because it basically ignores the BB1 sound) but I love it. I think Rabin and Jablonsky did an amazing job.<br><br>As for Lorne' score.....I have to disagree. I think it's great. Granted, my opinion is based only on what I heard in the movie (haven't heard the entire album) but I really like what he did. Clearly it was done with love. I mean, the Bad Boys 1 score is one of the reasons why Lorne became a film composer. So the BB3 score wasn't a "rush job". He clearly put an effort to it. I'm looking forward to the entire album.Comes out this Friday :)Still hope that Katsuhiro Otomo will reunites with Steve for his new anime, even if it's almost impossible.
Mark Mancinas Score for the First - Good!<br>Trevor Rabin for the second - Fantastic Great Action Score I LOVE IT! Steve Jablonsky work too on it! The Dr. Dre Music in this too..<br><br>Lorne Balfe to the third - meeehhh buuuuhhh!!!When does this come out? I can't find it anywhere online. And if it has already come out, does anyone know where it's available?Just saw the trailer...…<br><br>Not exactly an epic movie but I'm still quite excited for Steve's music. Deepwater Horizon contained some pretty cool cues so I'm definitely in for another Berg/Jablonsky collaboration.I’m assuming the first track is the end credits sequence? Lorne confirmed the end credits are included... and they are awesome.The score is getting release by Paramount Music, in other words, digital and same day as the movie opens (31th January)
Any news on if we get an album for The Rhythm Section?I wish to see you in concert in Poland it is so close to Germany and i think that you have many fans heere :)Booklet credits:<br><br>NIMEPATA UPENDO<br><br>Performed by The Mully Children’s Family Choir<br>Choir Director: Dickson Mulli<br>Lyrics by Scott Haze, Carol Wilhelm & Mercy Waitherero Macharia<br>Music by The Mully Children’s Family Choir and Benjamin Wallfisch<br><br><br>LOVE WILL BE YOUR SHELTER<br><br>Written by Siedah Garrett and Benjamin Wallfisch<br>Vocals: Siedah Garrett <br>Orchestra: Macedonian Radio Symphony<br>Produced and Mixed by Benjamin Wallfisch<br><br>Music Composed and Produced by Benjamin Wallfisch<br><br>Executive Producer: Robert Townson<br><br>Score Orchestrated by Arturo Rodriguez, Benjamin Wallfisch<br><br>Featured Vocalist: Tori Letzler<br><br>Guitars: Owen Gurry<br><br>Synthesizer Programming: Steve Davis, Evan Goldman<br><br>Cello Solos: Tim Hugh<br><br>Violin Solos: Stephanie Gonley<br><br>Orchestra: The Chamber Orchestra of London<br><br>Orchestra Contractor: Gareth Griffiths<br><br>Orchestra Conductor: Geoff Alexander<br><br>Score Recorded by Steve Price <br><br>Assistant Engineer: Alex Watson<br><br>ProTools Recordist: Chris Parker <br><br>Music Preparation: Jill Streater<br><br>Score Recorded at Angel Studios, London<br><br>Score Mixed at Mirai Sevens <br><br>Score Mixed by Satoshi Noguchi<br><br>Score Mix Assistant: Coleen Lutz<br><br>Score Technical Assistant: Max Sandler<br><br>Mastered by Patricia SullivanMahatma sisaGgrAmayiSu ...almost sure that first line is " Mah&#257;tm&#257; sisaGgrAmayiSu " in Sanskrit: "great soul wishing to start a war"<br>
Nah, it's just a retarded mistake.LOL@Evenstar maybe just to make a difference from maybe cues with rap or another kind of music that serves as additional score for the movie. For example Bad Boys 2 has Trevor Rabin and many composers as additional music but that's the composer music. Dr. Dre. write additional music but that was rap remixes. So, that's why i think the take movie picture score instead motion picture score.Yep, i think it was in the movie 2 times, first the motorcycle chase scene, second the action scene in the endDamn I knew I heard some MW2 in the score! Glad I'm not alone. :D

what other songs are featured in this movie?

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-06 00:00:00
"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. :)

@miles
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.

@bou
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
"suck!!!
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)

why media venture's composer always compose the music of DWA's movies? why they don't compose music for pixar movies?

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.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-07 00:00:00
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:

http://www.myspace.com/megamindsoundtrack

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.
