nvictor, I actually think Dunkirk is better than BR2049 for a couple reasons:<br><br>1) Even though BR2049 had some interesting themes, most of the soundtrack was too quiet for me and lost my interest during parts of the album. Dunkirk on the otherhand really maintained by interest almost throughout the entire album due to the intensity of the music.<br><br>2) BR2049 soundtrack feels like an attempt to mimic Vangelis' Blade Runner score, whereas Dunkirk is original and unique (except the fact that Zimmer's work isn't completely original, which doesn't bother me at all).It is off topic, but I was really wondering. What do you think about composers doing fan mades on youtube? Do you have a favorite one?After revisiting this one, it's not as bad as I thought. Tessa is a beautiful theme (but is completely fucked over by aesthetics, with the exception of its first appearance). <br><br>Decision has an impressive amount of progression throughout the film with the finale Dinobot Charge remaining one of Jablonsky's best. The action in general is pretty fun but, similarly to TF3, it lacks the substance that TF1, TF2, and TF5's action tracks have.<br><br>Lockdown and Galvatron's themes were suitably menacing and were used effectively, and I have no idea why Jablonsky didn't carry over the Galvatron theme to TF5 as it suits the Frank Welker Megatron fairly well.<br><br>Hunted is a pretty decent action theme when the vocals are absent, and Autobots Reunite was good, but I'm not really sure what it's supposed to represent considering it only plays twice in the film. <br><br>The main problem is of course, the complete lack of thematic continuity. I don't care if this was supposed to be a soft reboot of sorts, you have to keep the themes your series is remembered for, especially if you have the same composer. Don't make an array of new ones to just be abandoned in the next film, and give the original themes one reprise each! Because of this score, it makes the Transformers series' music look like an unplanned mess that doesn't know where it's going. <br><br>Thankfully Steve attempted to rectify this in TF5 by having reprises from every corner of the series and using the original themes much more frequently, along with the Autobot themes' building progression. That score actually makes this one look better because the Autobots theme being rebuilt makes it feel like it was only absent from this score because TF4 was about them being hunted, and TF5 has them semi-repairing their relationship with humans. <br><br>But on its own, this score is definitely the weakest, and reeks of studio interference with the unoriginal sound and Imagine Dragons' involvement.what about dunkirk : ) what do you think of it?Have any cue sheets or slates surfaced for this score?
...that response only made you look more suspicious, as it was so pre-programmed feeling.So if I say I love the score and itís amazing then Iím a bot !!!!!!!!! What a rediculois theoryHi, I'm new to this site and a big fan of Zimmer. Blade Runner is definitely one of his best works (and don't forget Wallfisch). Anyways, I'm definitely anticipating Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune film and I wonder if he'll go to Zimmer to do the project. That would be awesome if that happened.This place is not exactly a democracy, if something is not of my liking I get rid of it. Plain & simple.^^<br><br>For the sake of fairness, I think the admins should delete both the guys spamming the thread with whining, as well as the Balfe-bots spamming the thread with positivity while simultaneously denouncing "haters." (This does not apply to most people in the thread, but you know who I mean.)
I created a suite of what I believe are the best cues on the album, and attempted to make some interesting variations with the cues themselves in terms of transitions and such. Tracks included are Fallout, The Exchange, Escape Through Paris, Stairs and Rooftops, Free Fall, and Mission: Accomplished. Feel free to check it out, it helps make the whole score feel more melodic in my opinion!<br><br>https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCioYxbgNsqFhZ15onqcTlFA/vid eosBalfe haters will hate this !!!<br><br>But itís amazing . <br><br>Itís emotional then EPIC!<br><br>It can only be purchased at the Kynren site in Bishop Auckland, UK, during the show season. Google Kynren and hope to see you there soon! :) Hope this helps. Kind RegardsAgree with this 100%People are on here shitting on Giacchino and Powell saying Rouge One has a better score or people saying Solo has a better score and Iím over here like yep still listening to the Star Wars Original Trilogy And Prequel Trilogy scores over here. But I think they both gave Williams Justice and did good.
@HunterTech - because Cruise and the studio *really* wanted him back after Rogue Nation's success, despite the producers' initial plan for the franchise being to have each entry done by a different director. Hence, McQuarrie's condition that he'll be back as long as he does a completely different film.<br><br>And context is important because once you realise the *film itself* is heavily influenced by Nolan with a big dash of Fury Road-esque building action momentum, then the decision to have Balfe on board and the score to sound all Zimmer/RCP as opposed to more symphonic a-la Kraemer/Giacchino makes sense.So.......why not get a new director then? I admire his efforts in trying to attempt something different for every sequel, but he's eventually gonna get tired if he keeps coming back. Plus, there's been evidence that surfaced to suggest that there was a very specific reason in Kraemer not returning, which don't necessarily contradict what McQ is saying here.<br><br>Despite all this, I'm very excited for Fallout as a whole. I've been able to enjoy films with disappointing scores before (*cough*BR2049*cough*).Mephariel, fair enough. I see your point as well.<br><br>mpolonest123, I see your point.<br><br>But looking back at the MI2 score now, compared to some recent MV/RC stuff......it's just heads and tails above them. Again, that's just my opinion. There is a clear theme here, there is an actual structure. Not just some noisy sound effects thrown in the blender.@HunterTech - McQ said at every opportunity that a condition of his coming back would be making MI Fallout as if a different director was doing it. Which is why he got a new DoP, new composer, new costume designer etc
