New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br>youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nVB9Q77N9h-iKbNe7ZWrQHjiy_ vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br>youtube.com/watch?v=YGCFdR--u5M<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

Wait, was there music in the film that wasn't in the soundtrack?

Yes.

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


Prott2014-05-23 11:20:39
I hope so too, the score for the first one is the best part of the movie... by far!

Shockingly bad score .... 4 chords - 5 at best ...

Could try harder - seriously.

To be honest, the score is good, but the movie is one of the most rediculous ones I've ever seen!!

Simply, The Score Is Amazing. And Much music is missing.

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

To those that (unfortunately) saw the movie, how was the score? Anything good?

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-11-16 00:00:00
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.
