I really hated the entire thing. Everything about it. Fuck WB, fuck Whedon, fuck Elfman.I really hated this score for not using Clark's theme from MOS but this particular track "Home" is really growing on me. Still nothing tops Zimmer's magnificent themeOkay, Phantasm, I can hear where you're coming from. But I'd argue that the tone and harmonies of the two pieces are so completely different that this is a coincidence.Well, to give also my 2 cents to this thread:<br><br>Zimmer has a high reputation at the acadamy owing to certain scores from the past...I fear he could even solely knock against an old cooking pot from is mum during the whole time... if he should do it for a Nolan-movie (but maybe for other Hollywood-blockbusters too) he will get his nomination for sure. Zimmer-Fans will call it "creative", "brave" and "innovative".<br><br>Would be interesting if "only" Wallfisch or Balfe could have got the credits for Dunkirk. If one of them would have the nomination now as well? Zimmer laughed already his head off with the "Preachers Wife" nomination and could be, with this one too. <br><br>Don´t get me wrong...I loved/love many Zimmer-scores from the past and I´m not just a hater, but the music he has done for the last 2-3 blockbusters were not the Zimmer-quality for me for which I had appreciated him once.That's all i was trying to do is make a point lol i still can't believe I'm the only one who's noticed that.
Oh wow you’re right those are very similar... almost too similar lol. I thought you were referring to that low brass motif for Kylo Ren amd also didn’t see where you got that from, but you definitely have a point.Don't believe me? Here's Kylo rens theme listen from :30 and forward https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp433n4KzDA<br><br>Now here exodus wounds, from the beginning you can hear it but it becomes more apparent at 1:45 and onward   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjDujO-3BecDude go to youtube type in Exodus wounds from the war for the planet of the apes soundtrack then go and search for Kylo Ren theme it's the first video called kylo ren suite. Literally note for note he copied and pasted Williams kylo ren theme.I'll acknowledge that maybe War/Apes is a more distinctive and accomplished score than Homecoming. I just find a lot of it not very gratifying to listen to. The first fifteen minutes in particular is a really tough slog. Homecoming on the other hand is a standard typical Giacchino score, no surprises whatsoever, but it's more enjoyable for me (although the action music outside of a couple cues is really generic, I prefer the playful stuff in the first half of the score, and the main theme is pretty catchy and memorable).<br><br>Also, where the hell is Kylo Ren's theme in War/Apes?Giacchino's score in War for the planet of the Apes I think is on my top three scores of 2017, but the Oscars, BAFTAS, Golden Globes and so on would never give an award to a score like that because they (almost) always prefer scores like The Shape of Water (which is good and works great in context but it's not as great)
where is the Zanelli/Lindgren music in the movie??Isildur , so if hans for example won an academy award for his amazing spiderman 2  he should share it with 11 other composers beacause all of them had credit , really??!! ( magnificent six and about 5 additional music composers )No news yet Mr. Bale &#128542;No news yet Mr. Bale &#128542;Agreed, War for the Planet of the Apes is much better than Homecoming. IMHO.
I really like War for the Planet of the Apes. Giacchino did a great job creating a score unique to the movie with great atmosphere. I am actually tired of "Giacchino having fun."Amazing soundtrackPlanet Earth II has a 2CD release, but Blue Planet II?I bought a 2CD version. It's, to my experience, very complete.@Fares wanna hear a fun fact about giacchinos score for war for the planet of the apes he copied john williams Kylo ren theme note for note. Listen to Exodus Wounds and then go and listen to Kylos theme. Literally note for note doesn't even try to hide it.
