I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.
Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronicsSo I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter egg

Your article perfectly shows what I needed to know, thakns!

I agree also, because they have done the first two movies of shrek and narnia together.

Andrew Adamson said he wants to direct Magician's Nephew, so if he will return Harry will return for sure.

Having had seen this film, I would say that David Arnold would have to come with it. Harry Gregson set the bar high for this one. He did a great job with the music for "Caspian".

I believe the plan to make all 8 films...
in the order of original publication (thus the
first book "Magician's Nephew" will be the last film.)
We'll see...
Thanks for the pix, and love the sight! Great to
see how these guys do things!

I was talking about the movie industry, not the novels. Besides, who knows if there making the entire series of it.

The final Narnia movie?? There are like 8 books! David is very competent and will do a great job. Personally I felt that Harry's Wardrobe score was a bit derivative and not at his usual high standard. Harry's better at edgy - Deja Vu is a great example. But personally, I didn't like Andrew Adamson in the 'real' world anyway. He lost all that great stuff that made Shrek brilliant, the CG was major dodge (dissapointing for WETA) and those kids were really irritating. Michael Apted is an interesting choice... We'll see what happens.

OK, thanks. Well, David Arnold is a good composer... I'm not too worried about that, though I would have preferred by far that Harry Gregson-Williams could do it. Let's hope there will at least be some continuity in the music and that Arnold will bring back a few of HGW's themes...

dan reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-11 00:00:00
And Andrew Adamson will be replaced by Michael Apted in directing.

hans-batman-zimmer reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-11 00:00:00
Because David Arnold will compose next chapter of Narnia(2010).

Jaweco reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-10 00:00:00
What ? Why ?

It's too bad that harry gregson williams won't be able to do the final narnia movie.
