Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.
@badbu &#128077;<br><br>I honestly don't know how a complete score is going to work. They weren't kidding when they said the music is done like one long track. <br><br>What I understood from a Q&A with Nolan is that they didn't do it the usual way which means there are cues that are cut together / exist as segments. This was done in a different way where to create such cues, they used automation graphs to bring the layers in and out. Very complex. <br><br>One of the reasons why I think this deserves to win so many awards.Well it has officially been nominated. Fingers crossed for the complete score nowyep ahmad! 100% rightThe score is brilliant. It does its purpose very well and it is an essential part of the movie. It's also the most creative of the bunch with the way it was recorded and edited.I'd like Hans to win another Oscar but please, not for this.

Hans ZIMMER speaks about BATMAN BEGINS

"There is a guy named Chris Nolan who one day phoned me out of the blue and said ?Would I like to do this movie he was working on?? and after a while he was telling me what it was but the way he was describing it was that it was a small experimental film, just like the way he?s made his movies. And I thought ?Hey, this sounds really good, this is a really interesting angle on the superhero thing? ?cos I don?t know anything about superheroes. So I sort of said ?yes? to him and then the mighty executives at Warner Bros. phoned me and they were using words like ?franchise? and ?industrial?; all those big words that get really scary and I said ?Well I don?t think I can do it because I don?t want to be responsible for ruining a perfectly good franchise, if you see what I mean..."

Batman Begins first review by Matthew Scheller

After eight long years of anticipation and speculation, another Batman film is finally here. Acclaimed director Christopher Nolan (of Memento fame) has gone back to the roots of the character in order to "reboot" the franchise - a compromised decision made by Warner Bros. in order to apologize for the notorious Batman & Robin. Gone are the neon lights, bat nipples, homo-erotic influences and Joel Schumacher. Another ingredient that has been altered for this restart is the music.

FROM FSM

This Japanese website is playing some of the “Batman Begins” score over streaming video footage of the movie’s early Japanese premiere the other day!

And (surprise!) it sounds like a mixture of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard – some Zimmer-esque action music, and some Howard-like strings and piano. There’s also some really creepy, avant-garde sounds, presumably for the film’s villains. It plays for about 20 minutes non-stop, then there’s voice-over from the announcers until the 36.00 minute mark, and the music picks up again. It’s definitely from the score; the theme at the 36:05 point was in the most recent trailers (and here it has a killer string ostinato underneath it.) Check it out!

According to a new survey, The Sun Online announces that The Lord Of The Ring (Howard SHORE) arrives in first position, while John WILLIAMS' Star Wars gets the 2nd place. And a composer that we know very well takes the third place : Hans ZIMMER and his GLADIATOR's soundtrack. Good score, but it takes all sorts to make a world...

Thank you Thirdnature ! ;-)
