what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.
TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.
It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsameNo no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?
Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.

Sehr geehrter Herr Zimmer

In der Hoffnung dass Sie dieses hier lesen, möchten wir Ihnen kurz unser Projekt vorstellen. Wir drehen einen Dokumentarfilm über Unwetter in der Schweiz und Europa. Dazu gehören auch Klimawandel und vieles mehr.

Unsere Frage an Sie wäre nun: Dürfen wir ein paar Teile aus einigen Soundtracks für unsere Filmmusik verwenden? Ihr Name wird im Film erwähnt. Ersterer ist der von Madagaskar.

Unsere Kontaktmail lautet: d.kurz@scvswitzerland.ch

Vielen dank!

Hallo Herr Zimmer :)
Ich schreibe Ihnen hier in der Hoffnung, dass sie das lesen. Ich habe seit zwei Jahren einen Freund, der eine große Leidenschaft für Filmmusik hat, seitdem er hm ca 13-14 Jahre alt ist. Es wäre schön, wenn es machbar wäre mir eine Autogrammkarte von Ihnen zu schicken. Er fiebert wirklich bei jeder Oscar-verleihung mit und Sie inspirieren Ihn sehr! Es wär schön, wenn Sie oder Ihr Team mir eine Email schicken könnten, damit ich Ihnen die Adresse schicken kann.
Ganz liebe Grüße

Dear Hans Zimmer,

For so many years I have wondered if there would ever be a way to express the profound depth of gratitude I continually feel every time I listen to the brief 75 second theme you shared in the film "Driving Miss Daisy" which was used in several scenes: the retrospective in the empty home after Daisy was moved to an assisted living arrangement, the cemetary scene where Freeman is looking for the right headstone, and the last scene where he's helping her eat her pie. I used to study music and film in college, and it's been a life-long joy going back over half a century, but never have I EVER heard a theme that so tenderly and deeply expresses the over-arching spirit of a film as your brief composition in "Daisy." Quite honestly, it literally brings me to tears every time I hear it. I particularly love the sublime transition from a single sustained note at the beginning to the delicate, child-like wonder of what sounds like a harpsichord which then grows stronger into a fuller body of gentle affirmation. There's no way to express how deeply moved I am by this precious musical treasure. Thank you SO much.

Dear Mr. Zinner,

I have made a short video and would like to use your theme song for the movie "Broken Arrow." I have used another non-copyrighted song that is similar in the video, but as I am sure you will agree it does not compare!

My short video is entitled "EYESPOT is the Bomb!" and can be found on YouTube.

Who do I need to contact to get permission to use a short part of your Broken Arrow Theme song?

Keep up the great work!

Hello everyone:

I always thought that the music of Hans Zimmer deleted the complexities of harmony from other classical music. For me, the most interesting thing about this composer is the way he use the instruments and orchestra. Every time I hear the soundtracks of Gladiator, Lion King, Inception, Angels and Demons ... I can understand every move, the reason of the music. It's more than music stage. Good work, Zimmer. Very good work.

Hello Hans Zimmer,

I'm a big fan of all of your music and I love the music you composed for Inception. "Old Souls" takes me to a different world every time I listen. As summer approaches, I look forward to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and I have been constantly checking to see if previews would be available for your score. Today, I listened to the previews available on Amazon. Even though the previews were between 30 and 40 seconds, I'm a little concerned for the score. It's great that you are doing collaborations with other artists and creating music that you think fits the film best, but I don't understand why there is such little amount of your great original score. I'm assuming that the several remixes (included on the soundtrack) are not going to be played during the actual film because it would definitely transform the meaning and the world of the film in a significantly different way. Like you (or whoever was in charge of it) released two bonus tracks for Inception, I hope you do the same for Pirates 4. I'm also assuming that movie is at least 2 hours or even more (since the past movies have run for a great length). I'm not saying that your music is off key, I just want to hear more of it, especially if there is other music in the film. Whoever agrees with my perspective of this probably also feels that we are being cheated. Hopefully, some other tracks can be released.

Best,

Frank

Mr. Zimmer,

You music has so much emotion to it. I never knew you were the man behind every amazing movie score. One of my friends had shown me some of your work and i was beyond inspired by your music. I also produce music and after listening to some of your music i had an idea. I made a wonderful edit of your song Time from the movie Inception. I gave an already perfect track, a more electronic feel.

Mr. Zimmer,

Thank you. I am in love with the soundtrack to The Holiday. My favorite piece is Cry, a true love song that evolves taking us from sadness to pure joy with an urgency that fast is not fast enough to return to that one special person.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Zimmer, I am a 23 year old college student near Boston and I want to thank you for your tremendous contributions to music in my life. I am a huge Bat-fan/Nolan follower and I must have listened to your scores a trillion times - the cave got me ready to go out into the world during my teen years. Incepton and its score...I cannot express to others how it makes me feel. The mathmathical breakdowns and relations between motifs...brilliant. My favorite piece of all is during Cobb and Ariadne's conversation about Mal's Totem through to his confession...a bittersweet, etheral 5-note tune moves me in a way no other music i have come across does. Thank you, I hope one day to meet you and discuss music and life...that would be one of the coolest things ever. Can't wait for TDKR! My email is homemovies539@yahoo.com - If by some chance you want to shoot me an email I would love to coorespond with you, even once!

Dear Hans,
I have listened to your scores in movies for a long time. In my personal opinion, you are one of the best. My all-time favorite one would definitely be "The Holiday" Movie. The music compliments the actors and storyline perfectly!! I love Arthur's theme! It gets me in a good mood, and makes me feel like I can do anything... Iris's theme also is just as deep, but in a more emotional way. You feel how much Miles cares for her.
I know that when I watch this movie, I instantly feel better, and I recommend it to everyone I know.
I can't wait for more!!!

Hello,

I have heard an amazing music score today, the title was "Hymn to the Fukushima 50" on an Internet radio. I couldn't find the composer's name listed, but it sounded really Zimmer-ish, big, deep, emotional, melodic... does anyone have any information whether Hans or a colleague of his created this score?

Thanks much!
