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 DunkirkHere'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 now
yep 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.YES HANS!!! The second Oscar is COMMING! :DMesa is a cue in the film and it has to match with what's happening in the scene. <br><br>Blade Runner is an end credits suite which allows the themes to breathe a little. I think the two versions are identical when it comes to pitch.

ANTI- RECORDS TO RELEASE RANGO SOUNDTRACK

Percentage of iTunes Sales Will Be Donated To Charity


Anti-Records will release the soundtrack for the new Paramount Pictures / Nickelodeon Movies feature film RANGO on March 01. Directed by Gore Verbinski of "The Pirates of the Caribbean," RANGO features Johnny Depp in an original animated comedy-adventure set in the Wild West. With a cast that includes Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone and Timothy Olyphant as the Spirit of the West, RANGO is an exciting new twist on the classic Western legend of the outsider who saves a town - and himself in the process.

The soundtrack combines a soaring score from best-selling Academy Award® -winning composer Hans Zimmer ("The Dark Knight," "Inception," "Pirates of the Caribbean") with original songs performed by the acclaimed band Los Lobos and other artists. With driving Norteño melodies mixing with Western-inspired orchestral themes, RANGO is a soundtrack for both kids and adults alike. The film opens nationwide on March 4th and the soundtrack will be released digitally March 1st and in stores March 15th.

During the first week of release, from 3/1 to 3/8, a dollar for every RANGO Soundtrack purchased on iTunes will be donated on behalf of all the artists to ServiceNation, a campaign to inspire a new era of voluntary citizen service. The ServiceNation Coalition is comprised of hundreds of organizations who believe in the power of service and are committed to expanding those opportunities to make a critical difference.

To purchase the soundtrack to RANGO at iTunes, just go to: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=418673669
