I wouldnít be surprised if he wrote another long sketchbook for it...I honestly have no idea... But I can't believe back in June when he left he hadn't done a bunch of the score already...The thing is with Jablonsky scores composers rarely get cuesheet credits, so you can't really draw conclusions out of it. Here's a small part of the cuesheet :<br><br>QUINTESSA PT 1<br>QUINTESSA PT 2<br>QUINTESSA PT 3 OPTIMUS REDEMPTION<br>KNIGHTED<br>WE HAVE TO GO ZERO GRAVITY<br><br>OPENING BATTLE<br>MERLIN<br>MERLIN GETS THE STAFF - BATTLE WON<br>TROUBLED TIMES<br>CADE DRIVING - AMULET<br>WE HUNT - DECEPTICONS HUNT<br>KEEP A SECRET - VIV ARRIVES CASTLE FOLGEN<br>WITWICCANS<br>ROUNDTABLE ORGAN SOURCE<br>COGMAN CHOIR<br>STAFF<br>BETTER GET CRACKING<br>PLANETARY VAMPIRISM<br>TOO OLD<br>SUBMARINE<br>TWO MOONS<br>MERLIN'S TOMB<br>SPACE STATION<br>CLAIM THE STAFF<br>SHIP RISE<br>YOUR VOICE<br>SOLDIERS TAKE POSITION - BURTON DIES<br>FALL AND GRAB<br>ENDINGrumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves itAny chance of proper artist credits for this score?
@Hybrid <br><br>Did Tom actually record anything for the film or did he just do demos?It's the same 24 tracks divided on two CDs. I'm truly hoping for a nice numbered digipak that separates the limited editions from the regular release otherwise it would be quite a crappy move from the record label. <br><br>"Joss said, ĎLetís do it [Batmanís theme] on the nose. Fans love this kind of stuff.í" Why do you have to ruin everything, Joss?This film is atrocious. Suicide Squad was a mess but that film was forgivable. What WB decided to with JL is embarrassing, to say the least. Forcing Zack to change the tone and add forced childish humor and quips, demanding a less than 2-hour runtime, extensive reshoots with Whedon in charge... wtf were they thinking?<br><br>It's interesting to note that Zack hasn't even seen this abomination yet.Andrew loaded some cues to the movie "The Last Face" up on his soundcloud page, go & check it :)<br><br>soundcloud.com/andrewkawczynski/sets/the-last-face
Nice!<br>What about the 2nd CD?Watched this movie yesterday and it didn't make the score any better. It's not the worst thing I've ever heard but after what we got with MoS & BvS it's just disappointing. There's so much missed opportunities. Both the movie and the score had so much potential but it's just flat. <br><br>The problem isn't just Elfman or Whedon, it's WB! They wanted the change in direction and that's really sad.The movie itself is bad on so many levels and adding to that in many scenes I was shaking my head as I was hearing a completely different score in my mind, but there it was, something which took me out of the movie. Disappointed.<br><br>Do you think Whedon would've convinced the producers to replace the composer(s) if Hans was scoring this along with Junkie? I can't imagine what the uproar it would've created.Yes they did.<br><br>That Phantom Stache is in 90% of the Cavill shots...<br><br><br>Warner/DC died and chose Whedon to nail the coffin...<br><br><br>I hope like Superman 2, that one day, we'll get the "Donner's Cut" of this movie as it was supposed to be, because I think it was almost finished (even the score I'm sure Tom had written a good part of it).Came back from watching the movie and I couldn't agree more about what @Ds said. Adding to the scenes you mentioned I really felt instead of the intro song they should have played a variation Clark's piano theme it would've been so perfect as that whole sequence depicts a direct consequence of Clark/Superman's death and the loss everyone feels. <br><br>**SPOILERS**<br>And how fucking epic it would've been if MoS theme was played in all it's glory when he comes to their aid and punches Steppenwolf in the face. <br><br>What a wasted opportunity and did they reshoot all Cavill's scenes? His face looked so weird in almost all the shots with the CGI removed moustache.
And if the critics put better scores to Marvel movies over DC movies, my opinion is they lost objectivity. the same kind with the scores. <br>The score is an essential part of the film, it's a character and it's important. <br>And the scores of DC have and identity.Normally Iím not one for petitions but I think releasing an alternate version with JXLís score and whatever other changes they could make.<br><br>Danny Elfmanís score has really been warming up to me the more I listen to it (on its own I donít think itís really that bad) but the lack of thematic continuity is definitely a sore spot. If Junkie could get a chance to rescore it, that would be a fair shake for Snyder and fans of Zimmerís work.After i finally saw the film, well in my opinion the film is incredibly. Watching those characters in a film is just like boy's dream. <br>I have watched every movie from Marvel and DC Cimenatic Universe, and i love both lines of cmics and for me, the first line of Marvel movies was the best in terms of narration. Iron man 1, the incredible hulk, thor 1, Captain america the first avenger were extraordinary movies. By now, i think Marvel/Disney go to the way of jokes to make the rest of the movies and i think this lost the interest in the movies, except with Captain America the winter soldier, Ant-man and captain merica civil war. Thor 3 is good, but for example Spiderman Homecoming was less good than Thor 3 but in sometimes i feel i am watching the same kind of movie. It's the same with the score, The incredible hulk, for me, is the best score for the Marvel series along with The winter soldier. One thing surprise me, "critics" put better scores for all the marvel movies except TV shows, and DC movies all have bad scores except wonder woman. And for me i enjoyed more the DC movies over Marvel movies. Man of steel and batman v superman were phenomenal movies and better than marvel movies. It's my opinion and Justice League is better than The first avengers. The tone of DC movies it's more like the comics and more dark, more serious. Maybe that's why i like them.<br>The same thing with the scores, i think The theme Arcade is the new superman theme. The themes for Batman (Elfman) and Superman (Maestro Williams) are iconic. But for the new kind of movies (The Dark Knight trilogy) the score Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard made for the films were awesome. If you put old score (Elfman Batman) to nolan's films well the films lost their identity. DC producers take some risks to put the films into darkness and serious mode and it worked, but also the movies need to win a lot of money, that's why they changed  the tone of the film to some king of marvel-ite tone. I hope the don't go to that way to replace the tone of DC of jokes and lighter action like Marvel.Yeah it was more of a Wheedon film. However I enjoyed the movie even though it was flawed. The score was horrible though.Snyder did too, actually, admitting has hasn't seen the finished movie...<br><br>#BringZackBack<br><br>#BringJXLBack

Yes.

So, the Facebook page of the film just posted the poster for the film's sequel.
Hoping Margeson returns.

I hope so too, the score for the first one is the best part of the movie... by far!

He's also doing the Score for Battle: Los Angeles, which this film is a rip-off of.

Curious, but Brian Tyler is a producer executive of this movie. Remember, Tyler made the score for Alien Vs. Predator Requiem which was also directed for The Strauss Brothers, the directors of Skyline

I adore the score, since I saw the movie and I actually liked it. If you're gonna see it, go with the expectations of having fun and see some great effects, not to see the next District 9, like a lotta people thought.
Margeson better have more work, and give additional music for Transformers 3, or maybe write the score with Steve Jablonsky. They could be awesome together.

"Final Battle" is definately my favorite. The last minute is just really epic sounding ;) I love it.

Felix D. reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-19 00:00:00
Of all the tracks, I'll put in my vote that "Damage Control" is the weakest and feels out of place with the rest of the score. Considering that it's the music for the end credits of the movie, that makes it easier to understand with its inclusion. I like the track, but of all the tracks, it's the one I could leave out and still feel very satisfied with the score...it just doesn't flow with the feel of the rest of the tracks. And, yes to Miles, that the score plays out as a "low-key" offering, compared to other film scores, but this is, I believe, intentional. I'll be watching for future scores by Margeson, as I believe that he's shown great promise with giving us more scores that will be just as exciting to listen to. I still love Skyline's score, overall, and it's definitely worth the money.

Chill, refer to one of my previous posts for how "They're Not Dead" fits into the score's chronological order.

Here I am, working at home on my normal Friday schedule, and I'm listening to it, again. Of course, I have to keep things fresh, so I'm alternating "Skyline" with listening to the score for "9" by Deborah Lurie and the ever-pleasing release of Star Trek: The Deluxe Edition by Giacchino.

Happy listening, fellow fans!

As far as I'm concerned, Damage Control is the weakest track on the album. Totally ruins the listening experience for me at the end.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-19 00:00:00
I'm probably unique here, because "Damage Control" isn't my favorite track. It's not unlistenable, but the rock element seems slightly gratuitous, and there's an abrasive edge to it that keeps me from giving full marks. On the other hand, tracks like "Ship Down", "Final Battle" and especially "Abduction" are very good indeed. All in all, a solid if slightly generic effort from Margeson. Here's hoping he gets the opportunity to be more versatile in the future!

The Song Abduction has a bit of a steve jablonsky touch to it but it good and Damage Control mostly the best track on it

Felix D. reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-17 00:00:00
I agree, Chill. Abduction is my favorite track of the score. That's one of the final cues, falling in this order,

"Final Battle"
"Abduction"
"Inside The Ship"
"Damage Control"

chill reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-17 00:00:00
if its not in order does that mean abduction could be the ending cue? I think its the most memorable piece, along with final battle...

Felix D. reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-17 00:00:00
Hi, Bondo. The score actually is not in chronological order, but what's nice about this film score's production is that ALL of the memorable music is there...no wishing for those additional tracks that most scores leave out. For a sample chronological order for one of the film's memorable sequences, listen to the following in order,

"The Cavalry"
"Ship Down"
"They're Not Dead"

Nearly 2 days later and I'm still listening the heck out of the score. And, thanks for the comment, Everan!

Everan: yep. soundtrack was amazing :P that main theme was catchy.

The movie wasn't too bad; it was engaging, so long as you like sci-fi stuff. Action and acting were pretty good :P Special Effects through the roof too!! I can understand why some people won't like it though :P but if ur not a hardass give it a shot otherwise avoid ahaha

Maybe I'll see it in DVD or something. I dont know, I just want the score right now, maybe it's the only thing "rescueable" from the movie, and the effects.

I bought the soundtrack from Amazon at midnight on the 16th (first available). A very good score which was easy to hear during the movie. In my humble opinion (many people will disagree), Skyline is very effective at giving a chairarm-gripping experience after the first 30 minutes, so it works. The movie won't be a success in the U.S., but it'll be a hit everywhere else. The movie doesn't have a happy-ending, but it's realistic...it doesn't pull out that happy-find-a-virus-to-kill-the-aliens-in-3-days crap. Yeah, the character development's not there, but then, I didn't pay $10 for a tear-jerker, I asked for action, jaw-dropping special effects, and memorable music, all of which I got. Skyline had the courage to give us an alien invasion movie in broad daylight and got that part right on target. And the kicker is, it cost these guys $10 million to make. Hollywood (and everyone else) should take notice of that. Anyway, Margeson did a very good job on the film score. All of the tracks are good, but if you're doing things a la carte, pick up "Abduction", "Make A Run For It", and "The Cavalry". Best bet is to pony up $7.99 and download the entire MP3 score from Amazon.com.
