How black and white must your worldview be when not calling Lego Batman ONE OF THE GREATEST ANIMATION SCORES OF ALL TIME is called  "hatred". Believe it or not there is a bit of a spectrum between BEST EVER and WORST EVER. Although I imagine that's news to quite a lot of the people who frequent this site.Leave it to discuss the Lego score on the page reserved for it.<br><br>These comments about Balfe popping up everywhere are annoying.<br><br><br><br><br> <br>It's a bit annoying that every time I want to read some comments about the Wonder Woman soundtrack and click on a picture all I can read are praises for the Lego Batman score.<br><br>Please talk about Lego Batman in the Lego Batman section and keep this topic for Wonder Woman's music - which is not bad at all, by the way.Legobatman was fun score . I don't understand why some are mean about it . It's better than most Marvel scores and very memorable . Looking forward to his next animation filmNeither am I ? Lego Batman had cool music . Loved the songs also .
The emotional music in Lego Batman was some of the best writing was fantastic . Not sure why there is hatred for the sound track ? I only came across this web site because of Balfes music ....and some insights to the first POTC score. Seems he really did a lot for it. Interesting how no one really mentions Klaus Badelt beside lots of name dropping of other composers. The Lone Ranger bits are also very nice (another troubled production).Yeah I agree, sounds like Gollum's theme. Which I guess makes a weird kind of sense since both Gollum and Batman lead a double life xDFinal part of "Batman Suite" sounds like "The Lord of The Rings" lolReally again on that Lego Batman score ? Still don't know what everyone is raving about. The score of wonder woman. Liked it, but nothing memorable. For best the more emotional tracks stand out the best like Pain, Loss & Love
It's the same as One Day just re-scoredLego Batman is not even the best animated score this year let alone the second best all time.<br><br>The Lion King, Prince of Egypt, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, etc..<br><br><br><br>Dear Hans,<br><br>me and my wife visited the concert in Leipzig, Germany on May 24th 2017. We are big fans of Hans’ music and were in joyful anticipation to see him playing live some of our most favorite songs.<br><br>We had tickets for the best category right in front of the stage. By the way: we also visited John Williams and we have tickets for James Newton Howard as well.<br><br>But sadly this concert was a total disaster and we drove back home with nothing else than disappointment and anger. Compared to John Williams, where we were totally excited and told everybody about the great concert, we weren’t able to do this for the Hans Zimmer concert.<br><br>Let me explain in short, how we experienced this Hans’ concert.<br><br>1) Sound<br>The sound was horrible. The bass (especially sub-bass) was way to loud. Everything was booming, the sound was ‚muddy‘ and totally distorted. Vocals were hearable and understandable only if the band was playing very quitely.<br><br>At least, many people had to cover their ears because of the high loudness. And some people left the concert because of the bad sound. And just as a note: such high levels are harmful to health and if you like your fans to hear your music in the future, you shouldn’t kill their hearing ability!<br><br>Front of House was at the very end of the hall - so they didn’t hear how bad it was in front of the stage - and the most expensive seats.<br><br>I have to say this was no professional work. It seems like they just tried to kill any noise by turning up the volume to the max (like in the 80s) instead of optimizing sound and setup adjusted to the hall and the audience.<br><br>2) Lightshow and screen<br>The lightshow was a lowlight as well.<br><br>Almost the whole lightshow was based on strobe effects and flashing lights - no matter if the moving hads were flashing or the psychedelic moving images on the big screen were flickering and flashing. I was not able to watch this concert longer than a few seconds and then I had to close my eyes for a few seconds before I was able to watch again. Two hours of strobing and flickering lights, all the way from light to dark and back again in high frequencies was very exhausting. And it wasn’t only me. I saw a lot of people keeping their heads down and were watching the ground and not the stage.<br><br>Lucky me, I’m not an epileptic….<br><br>The big screen was used only for this irritating images and sometimes for pre-recorded! scenes, where some of the musicians were playing their instruments instead of showing the band or Hans’ playing live or if Hans’ is telling stories about the songs, his live or his friends and band colleagues.<br><br>At least this kind of lightshow and use of the big screen didn’t make it possible to see the artists faces. So it’s a bit like with the sound… You couldn’t hear them, but you couldn’t see them as well.<br><br><br>So why do you visit a concert? Right, to see the artist play and hear, what they play. Both wasn’t possible or a joy that day.<br><br>There are many clips on YouTube, where you can see and hear what we experienced. And no, the distorted sound is not caused by „bad mics“ of the smartphones...<br><br><br>I’m very sad to say this, but this was the worst concert of my live. I’m not able to tell anything good about this event - and everybody was expecting the total opposite. And to be honest - I wish I could get my money back, for the very first time in my live after visiting a concert. It was such a waste of time and money :(<br><br>Rick<br>Up, How to train your dragon and then Lego Batman are my top three. Defiantly best score of the year - AT THE MOMENT !!!Me too! Fun score. Surprised there are no more comments here.
Exactly - Lego batman could easily be for any D.C. Film not just for an animation . One of my favoritesGot to agree with you . Legit batman is in my top 5 for sure . It out a lot of super hero film soundtracks to shame . Excellent scoreWell.. I saw the movie, and I liked though not as much as the trilogy, but its very enjoyable in its own right. Capture much more of the firsts movies feeling that OST did. What I think I missed the most was Verbinski's weird sensibilities, grittiness and timming, but oh well as long as he doesn't want to return to this series, it will be something to miss for ever. <br><br>As for the Zanelli's score I loved it. I think is much better than Curse of the Black Pearl, which I think is the one we should compare with. Remember this new movie is, in theory the 1st one of a new part of the saga, so... compare it to AWE I think is very unfair... Not just the characters but the story itself must earn the epicness just as AWE did, thats how Zimmer desceibed it at the time. So this new one is the lowest end of Pirates epicness yet, or at least is the way I see it. If they keep doing more and Zenlli is still there, I'm sure it'll have to grow in scope and reach AWE highs and maybe even more.Agree with Edmund, (Shrek, Ice Age, Kung Fu Panda, Jungle Book...,) but each to his own... <br>What's the name of that celestial music when Volmer gives Hannah a new dress and says to her "You're a woman now" ?

does anyone no anything bout wat is happing with the score and will the score be in the next trailer


Mike2013-03-15 20:25:46
We'll probably hear ELEMENTS of the score (kinda like for the 3rd and 4th Dark Knight Rises trailers).


Man Of Steel2013-03-17 23:11:38
Got a chance to listen to a little of the score. And it's awesome! Very, VERY different than anything Williams ever did. But still amazing. King Arthur drum cadences against alot of brass bends and electric guitars...yes i did just say electric guitars in a superman score.


d.j2013-03-17 23:18:17
may i ask how did you get two listen to it and where did you get to??


Mike2013-03-18 00:31:47
I would say, d.j., that Man of Steel doesn't know what he's talking about. :)


Man of Steel2013-03-18 20:32:38
I would say i do know what im talking about. Unfortunately i cannot say how Ive heard it cuz i don't want anyone to lose their jobs. D.J simply asked and i told him. You can believe it or not. But when you finally hear it, you'll see my description wasn't wrong.


d.j2013-03-18 20:54:20
man OF steel it's cool just keep us updateed bout what you no bout the score and i have one more ? do you no if they will put wat you heard in the new trailer and do you no when the trailer will come out


Man Of Steel2013-03-19 05:43:39

You make a good point Mike, and it's exactly what I was going to say. The theme is there, whether you like it or not. If it's not the kind of theme you wanted is another matter...

Btw, Tom Holkenberg (Junkie XL) tweeted that the score is finished. This does give Hans plenty of time to do Lone Ranger after all. I guess this means we should defiinitely hear the theme in the next trailer for sure.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 21:12:06
Yeah Man of Steel is already "past tense"... :)


Lorne told me they really are working together with Hans on that Bible TV series. And from what he said, he didn't work with HZ at all on Man Of Steel or any other HZ project. I guess that's the first time a big HZ score has no Lorne in 8 years... :O

Lorne has way too many things to carry on !

Oh and Geoff Zanelli has done a little work on Man of Steel. :)


Mike2013-01-05 21:33:46
Have you heard any of MOS Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 22:36:20
Nope and just for once I'll try not to hear any SAMPLE before I see the film... :)


MGDrone2013-01-06 01:26:30
So, on Additional Music for MOS we can expect to hear something from Zanelli and Junki XL? Do you know who else is on the project?

I'm excited to hear what they're cooking up for the Bible series. Do my ears deceive me, or is that Lisa Gerrard I hear? (I'm referring to the Youtube video.)


Mike2013-01-06 03:36:13
To that, Hybrid, I say: good luck. :P


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-06 09:05:23
It is Lisa Gerrard... :)

All the music from the trailer is from the show. There's also that big 5 min "Nativity" clip on youtube, with score too (and Lisa)... :)

Mike reply Replies: 9 || 2012-10-23 09:30:59
Something just occurred to me. Perhaps for the Man of Steel score it would be best not to expect a "main theme", instead awaiting multiple "sub-themes". Because in Batman, there's not one theme, strictly speaking, but several.

Either way, I'm excited for what this score might bring, especially considering that Zimmer won't be going for the bass-heavy, percussive Dark Knight approach.


Mike2012-10-23 09:38:10
Errr, excuse the thing about bass heaviness. He never specifically said that.


MGDrone2012-10-23 18:30:48
I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. What people should keep in mind is that this Superman is going to be incredibly different from Donner and Reeves' Superman. There's no reason we should expect a theme similar to John Williams' theme. On the same level, yes, but not similar. There's also no reason Hans should try to score this like anyone but himself.

I really can't say what I want the score to sound like since I didn't really get the feel of the movie from the teaser. All I can hope for is that Snyder will give Zimmer free reins and let him score the movie like he knows it should be scored.


Mike2012-10-23 23:19:07
Although I gotta say I wouldn't mind hearing something along the lines of Williams' Krypton theme. They was great stuff!


Bondo2012-10-24 03:34:00
You're not gonna hear anything that sounds like John Williams


Mike2012-10-24 04:27:53
Oh, I know. Just saying.


tomPoland2013-01-04 13:52:31
Superman theme is a must be. Powerfull, beautiful, memorable.
And without ostinatos that RCP people over-use.

"No theme" in Batman had some sense, but this is SUPERMAN, American icon.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-04 14:00:29
What "no theme" in Batman ?

You def ?


I can find PLENTY of themes in Batman.


tomPoland2013-01-04 15:28:54
No Batman theme, lots of minor themes but no direct melody to describe dark knight. There are those two notes, but it's hardly to call it a theme, don't you think?


Mike2013-01-04 20:12:33
Well, Hans considered the two notes to be a theme. Is there a definition of theme you're going by, where these two notes truly don't make the cut?

Le Lombardi from Brazil reply Replies: 5 || 2012-08-14 05:28:44
I can believe that you will not use for just a seconds the theme create by master John Williams. My dear Hans Zimmer it is for just a seconds, the power of this theme is UNIVERSAL and imortal. You know...some themes we will never forget, and stay for the hero, not for the film. ROCKY, STAR WARS, ET, RAMBO, STAR TREK TV, STAR TREK MOVIE, INDIANA JONES, HARRY POTTER, JAWS, TERMINATOR, IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, PLEEEASE MR. ZIMMER use your feelings.

IT IS FOR JUST A FEW SECONDS, THEME FOR SUPERMAN BY JOHN WILLIAMS, JUST FOR A FEW SECONDS, PLEASE.



NTNBaessi2013-01-03 03:55:25
Come on, a score is not a jingle for the character. The theme composed by J. Williams probably will not fit the tone of this new movie. Just get over it and embrace the new...


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 04:01:36
Just watched some videos on Youtube that mix The Dark Knight with the Danny Elfman old score for Batman/Batman Returns. It seems incredibly awkward, does not fitting the movie at all. This is just what could happen if they try to use J. Williams theme in Man of Steel. New franchise, new theme. PLEASE!


Areozz2013-01-03 04:54:44
Hans Zimmer on "The Dark Knight" + Danny Elfman on "Batman"/"Batman Returns" = Hans Zimmer on "Man of Steel"? How the heck does that make any sense? And do you really think that by complaining on an almost official page for RCP will get Hans Zimmer's attention and that he will choose to rework his whole score based solely on some mash-up videos that you saw on YouTube?

fools


Mike2013-01-03 05:06:52
Plus, I believe the score is written already. Wasn't there talk recently of how it was being recorded?


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 05:08:41
Did you actually read what I just wrote? Were did a mention that he should rework his score? I am saying that people should be open to the new sound that he possibly will bring to Man of Steel and not be stuck thinking on Williams score. Le Lombardi from Brazil says that Zimmer should use the classic Superman theme on MOS, which is movie totally different in tone, making the old theme unfitting. And if you use your brain you can clearly make a relation between this situation and what happened with the Batman movies...

The new Man of Steel trailer will premiere in front of The Hobbit on december 14th. Do you think it'll feature brand new music by Zimmer?

Remember the wonderful trailer #3 for The Dark Knight Rises a year ago... :)
