What about his last cover of "Wicked Games"? What a great surprise! Actually, all the themes are being updated every week. Ramin's stealing the show again!Greetings! I have a question regarding the placement of certain cues. Here, "Mycroft Is Nude" is placed where it plays in the film. However, on the sheets, it's shown as being after "Paris Bombing Investigation." Was the scene originally supposed to be later in the film? I'd be curious to know.just beautifulThis is a whole new side of his music as compared to what we normally hear.Black Widow has been moved to Nov. 6th, so we'll het Balfe's sckre at the end of the year.<br><br>Mulan has been moved to July 24th.

This is a highly underrated album. It's nothing short of a masterpiece, a modern opera. The choir is beautiful, and the choice of gospel for the first track gives it a unique identity, though I'm not sure how well it meshes with the orchestra. It feels a bit off, but will hopefully improve for me on further listens. <br><br>The composition, has to me, elevated Powell to the status of the second best living composer (Williams is still first for now). It's pure orchestral beauty and mastery with variety of texture, color, and style, with seamless tonal transitions. The complexity rivals some of the great works of the past. <br><br>It's strange to me that this is called "choral works". Sure the choir is an important element, but it really should be named "Hubris Symphony", or "Hubris: The Opera", because that's the status the album deserves.My Attempt at a chronological order with edits (feel free to correct any mistakes or if I missed anything) <br><br>1.

Change Of Plan (Unused) (5:47)Rogue One is a bit of an odd one. From what I'd heard, Desplat had joined on the condition he'd be allowed to do his own thing and not ape Williams. But once they decided to overhaul the film, they pressured him to go that exact direction. Things stayed still for a while (in which he still got paid) before he was finally let go very late into production. So the idea he sorta just left is interesting, so I'm curious to hear what that was about.<br><br>For BW, it seems very likely to me that Marvel simply were unsure about Alexandre's music, so I'm guessing they hired Balfe to do some demos and decided from there. Who knows what the exact timeline is, but I'd wager it'd have to at least be this year if he's been on it a bit. Especially with AD's name having stayed on the posters during it.Hybrid, Desplat left Rogue One just for his own idea? I know he left that movie beacuse schedule conflict for the reshoots. <br>But for Black Widow seems that the replacement was since months ago with Lorne writing and recording the score at the same timeht tp:// filmmusicreporter. com/2020/04/01/ track-list-for-disneys-live-action-mulan -soundtrack-album-revealed/<br><br>Why release a tracklist for an album that won't be released for another 6 months at least. That's just a punch in the gut, in my opinion
So it won't be a last minute and hasty job?No idea but he was on it for a bit, I think.Hybrid, do you know how long Lorne had to score?Score is recorded already.Yup, which makes me wonder if they had to wait before announcing it, considering Desplat was still being listed in posters prior to the delay.

I said...It's better that Zimmer leaves these cartoon production...

John reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-05 00:00:00
When I heard that Zimmer was scoring this, at first I was dissapointed, but then I thought "Well, maybe the music will be a parody of Superman and maybe it will even contain self-parodies to the new Batman films!". But so far, from the clips, it seems that the score won't have any of these features. Such a shame...

@ Anonymus:

I think that Djawadi has done tha tracks where we can hear the noise of the scarecrow...

alexkurt reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-04 00:00:00
Sorry hybrid for being off topic, but we're also allowed to talk about Zimmer , even negatively.
You can say what you want, that Zimmer has never been alone writing his scores, I don't agree. back in the old days, he was helped by orchestrators and arrangers, yes, but he was still writing at least more than 70 % of his scores.
Nowadays, it is clear that he writes the themes, a few cues , -probably not even orchestrated just rough piano sketchs - and that's all.

And, he's probably doing all the business stuff, like meeting with directors, convincing producers that the music has to be like this and that, etc ...

That disappoints some people and I understand it.
Zimmer hasnt done a memorable score since ... lets say, Da Vinci Code.
I'm sure DA vinci code was one of the last scores he truely worked like in the old days....

Nuno reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-04 00:00:00
Yes, I agree with alexkurt. I still have hope in Hans though, and I believe that someday he will surprise us with a score that will be on the same level as his older stuff. Inception was really good in my opinion, and it was perfect for the movie.

However I do not blame him for giving a chance to younger composer's to do some work and let them be credited for it, I think that only shows that he is a supportive and encouraging person and that he is not an egocentric person thar feels the need to take all the credit.
In a way I think that he is doing for these MV composers what Stanley Myers did for him when he was starting out in the business.

But I would definetly like to hear more "solo" scores by Hans, like in the good old days. And I'm looking forward to hearing what he and Lorne Balfe have done for Megamind. Cheers.

i look forward to this movie and its score.
Hans Zimmer is one of the most populare composers in the film industry at the moment, and he keep making amazing soundtrack so hes gonna be around for a long time, and im happy about it.
Hans Zimmers score is so powerfull and amazing that it just takes my breath away.
A really amazing composer whit an incredeble carriere :)

if i had to complain about one thing whit Hans Zimmer it is that all of his albums doesnt contain a copmplete score from the movie.
and thats not a critic on him :)

How did you contact him?!

So, is he working already on POTC? And has finished to eork on RANGO?

Hans, you disappoint me. Lorne Balfe isnt such a good composer , just a library music composer. No style, nothing !!! Why are you working with him ??? Work alone ... !!! you're much better when you do so ...

Khun reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Hans probably tries to push Lorne Balfe to be famous. You know, after the guy has worked and gained some experience from him with his previous works. At least, another fresh composer will be risen in the future. (I hope Lorne will do good again this time)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Only Powell and HGW are good composers that Hans raised. Maybe Mancina also (but not lately). Others will do B movies or TV shows and sometimes Hans will take them to do additional music so they their name will be on cover.

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Right...lots of composer in MV are bad, only a few are good...Onestly I've no idea about Balfe, but for examle I remembered the bad work that Djawadi did on Batman Begins, NOISE not music!!!

Very bad composer...

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Adrian, onestly I consider Ramin a very poor "composer". Clash has a copy of Zimmer previous works with the classic MV sound and was a success just because guys now want hearjust POWERFUL music with 100% volume up!!!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
I think we should be careful about this discussion unless we want this message board to degenerate into flame wars and be closed down like Clash of the Titans was. I actually liked Clash, but appreciate that there are people who don't. If we can just adopt a mature attitude towards this kind of thing, then this whole site will be a better environment for appreciation and discussion.

I think Ramin djawadi is a very low qualified composer according to Hans Zimmer, Every one is.
But Hans is just has not the time to do all the movies , so he has replacements, such as ramin djawadi and all the rest. I bet no one can do the inception score better than done by Mr Zimmer.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
@Enrico,

What about Clash or Medal of Honor? Those were magnicificent jobs by him!
He worked with Badelt on Beat the Drum too, that was a success too.

@nameless 10/03
And B movies... Lorne did Crying with Laughter, but he made A music!
