The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.
Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.
2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

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.

Feel free to have a listen.

Cheers!

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!

Anne

My love for Hans Zimmer's music began when I was ten and Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl came out. I am eighteen now and ever since that movie I have developed an extreme love for movies and soundtrack scores and when I go to see new movies, as well as immersing myself in the plot of the film, I pay close attention to the music that accompanies it.

After seeing Inception last year I decided that yes, it is now one of my favourite Zimmer scores. Especially 'Time'. I just finished watching the live performance on Youtube and I'm not going to lie, I was sitting in my chair weeping like a little child. I cannot express my love for Hans Zimmer and it's times like these, crying in my chair, that I wish I wasn't in Australia. We do not get live concerts from composers like Zimmer.

Oh man if I saw a live concert, I honestly don't think that any experience I would or could have in the future could EVER top that. It truthfully is my one and only wish.

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT WORK.

I'm not sure if you actually ever read this, but I would like to applaud your work in pretty much every movie you've been in lately. The quality of the music is amazing, and I don't think people give the musicians behind everything enough credit. Anyway... You probably don't want to hear this from a 16 year old girl, but I think it's pretty amazing what you add to these movies, and I would die (not literally, of course) to be in a band or orchestra like yours.

Hi Hans

(I hope you sometimes find the time to read these comments).

While on a recent business trip to Mongolia, I took with me a selection of your music. This was a terrific combination of the wild, exotic and freezing (-35°) panoramic views, and your highly entertaining, emotive and classical (to me) music.

I particularly enjoyed The Dark Knight soundtrack as the soundtrack to my Mongolian visit.

I'm listening to it now (while in my office in Switzerland), and I feel like I am transported; not only back to Mongolia, but also to a very special and passionate place.

Long may you continue to entertain!
Thank you very much Hans!
Paul Davies.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
I am a 17 year old girl who lives in Reno, NV. I know how unlikely that it is that this will receive any individual attention, but I could not stop myself from telling you how much your music has changed my life. Its powerful and raw, full of so much emotion. When I was a kid I used to watch movies over and over just to listen to the music. Now I actually have the majority of your soundtracks on my ipod. When I found this site I was ecstatic and thrilled like the band kid I am that there was a place where it all was. It is put together simply and easy to figure out. Basically, I just wanted to say thank you for bringing the wonders of your music into the light for all to hear.
Lindsey

Wow had no idea he had done some of the music that you listed. Thanks for that info. The first time I noticed him was on the soundtrack for Crimson Tide. Every since then when I really like the music in a movie I look to see if it was him and I'm not surprised when I love the music and his name rolls up the screen.. Truly talented thanks for bringing this website about a gifted, gifted composer...
