Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? ThanksIt is somewhat bizarre that you all are thinking directors actually want to work with Junkie. Surely, the only reason anyone hires him is that they want Zimmer who is not available. Yes, some may have heard Mad Max but it would be silly to think anyone actively wants a Junk score.Bob Badami (as Robert Badami), Melissa Muik, Mark Wherry (as Mark Andrew Wherry are music editors!<br><br>Booklet credits<br><br>Music Editor: Melissa Muik <br>Score Wrangler: Bob Badami<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark WherryI don't think Junkie XL picks the shittest films to work on. It's just that art film directors won't choose him to score their films. Even in RCP, a lot of his colleagues are more well respected than he is. I would argue Benjamin Wallfisch is already more well regarded. Mad Max is an exception because of its unique setting and story line.
Metro Expanded Score (1997) By Steve Porcaro & James Newton Howard<br><br>I found an interesting about unreleased tracks from the whole movie by one hour and 57 minutes, it's meant something missing in the movie. But I did edit some unreleased tracks from the movie, but not in OST It could be Expanded Score. I'm sure about that!<br><br>1. Main Title (1:57)<br>2. Sam's Death (1:31)<br>3. Keep You Out Of This (0:41)<br>4. Roper & Ronnie (0:51)<br>5. Jewelry Store Heist / That's Korda (1:46<br>6. First Chase (2:41)<br>7. Cable Car Pursuit (6:18)<br>8. He's Getting Away (0:21)<br>9. Car Garage Capture (0:51)<br>10. Dinner Only (1:06)<br>11. Intruder (3:14)<br>12. Ronnie Attack (4:41)<br>13. Love Theme (1:51)<br>14. Korda's Escape (1:49)<br>15. Is She Out There ? (0:26)<br>16. Ronnie Kidnapped / Korda's Demands / The Shipyard (3:16)<br>17. Final Chase (3:11)"I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct."<br><br>I agree with you, except that Snyder and I have very different ideas about what makes good (film) music, and how to emphasize it. Ridley Scott is a somewhat similar case. Somehow he has gotten a ton of great music written for his movies over the years despite the fact that his musical instincts are really strange and misguided sometimes. At least Snyder doesn't butcher the scores he gets.<br><br>You're right that a director like Whedon doesn't seem to pay that much attention to how music can enhance his movie. But as someone who cares about film music 95% of the time as albums, not in film, I often find that a director who gets out of the way and just trusts the composer to do his/her thing is preferable to one who gets overly involved with the scoring process and has lots of ideas about how things should sound. That the subsequent scores end up buried or ineffective in their films is a shame, but the music at least tends to be good on its own terms.@mrzimmerfan<br>Oh no, I mean I love the score as a whole. I was just saying my personal highlights. Man of Steel emotionally resonated with me. But that’s cool that you like BVS, I personally just think Man of Steel is more engaging.@mpolonest: But that moments are simply moments, not the entire score, i prefer BvS, because there is a variety in it: Batman, Wonder Woman, Luthor, and is more complex than MoS (also i prefer the movie over MoS).<br><br>And yes, the theme for Superman is cool, but that dosen't make the entire score cool too.and some nice boob representation, too.
@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Point Break is a lousy movie, but the score and guitar main theme isn't all that bad. Those 10 minutes on the soundtrack don't do it enough justice at all.<br><br>But again - this is Junkie doing action scoring....Miles better than any of his slow stuff. For me, anyway.@Edmund <br>He’s definitely not my favorite director, but I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct. One of my biggest pet peeves is when directors/composers just use music as a sonic wallpaper, instead of letting it improve  and add to the scene. John Ottman is a great example. He can write great themes, but he tends to write underscore which adds nothing to the film. That’s why Zimmer, Williams, James Newton Howard, etc. are so good. They treat each moment with care."Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music"<br><br>A matter of opinion, and not an opinion I share.@mrzimmerfan <br>I disagree with you there. I love Man of Steel, I think the themes and the overall bombastic nature of the score work perfectly. As for BVS, I’m not a huge fan honestly. There are some amazing highlights, but the tone of the score is so downbeat. It lacks the soaring elements of “Flight” or “What Are You Gonna Do...” and the action highlights of “Terraforming” or “Escape From Ship”. <br><br>To each their own though :-)For the themes mostly, this Batman and this Superman fit with the themes written by Zimmer. But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)<br><br>
I genuinely wish we could hear Justice League, I would have loved to see what he brought to that under Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music.I still remember when Divergent was released, I was almost immediately dismissive of Junkie XL. Having only heard his remixes and his drum stuff for MoS/300 the first thing I expected was to hear an electronica album with percussion and sound design. So imagine my surprise when I heard several different themes, beautiful string adagios, vocals, and a pretty big variety of styles. And then Run All Night came out and blew me away. Ever since then I’ve been pretty supportive of his work, but I have to agree with everything you guys are saying.<br><br>The past two years have been pretty bad in terms of his ratio of good scores to bad. Black Mass and Brimstone, as I’ve mentioned, are solid scores that veer away from the usual JXL sound. But then we have Deadpool (abrasive), Distance Between Dreams (ok for a stand-alone album), Dark Tower (pretty fun in parts and just bland in others), and Tomb Raider (one of the most generic scores I’ve heard in recent memory). It’s frustrating to see a composer who obviously has talent and a diversity of skills write almost the same thing over and over. <br>And the weirdest thing is, his earlier scores are far more distinctive than his current ones. How did that happen?Nope he released All I see is you Soundtrack last year and it was a great soundtrack..<br><br>Are you sure you're a fan of him?<br><br>So far no project announced for this year but I think there will be at least one...What happened to Marc Streitenfeld? It's been a long time since there has been any involvement or a new score from him. Some years ago, I thought he's going to be the new upcoming star from the horizon of RCP. But then abruptly silence. Any reason or information?@Meta: Really Point Break was interesting?, it's only 10 minutes of music released, and i din't care about it, honestly, and the movie was really, really bad.<br><br>As for Tomb Raider, the music was serviciable in the movie, but i more comfortable with it than Point Break.

Dear Sir Hans Zimmer!
Surely that you never know about me. But it seemed to be that I had loved your works for "Pirates of the Caribbean" since the first time I enjoyed them in the series of these films (Pirates 1,2 and 3).
I listen to those songs day after day! I never feel boring with them
I write this message in order to show my love for your works.
Thank You!

Mr. Zimmer, would you possibly be the son of Wilhelm Zimmer who moved to charlotte, N..C. tp build Zimmer pipe organs.

Willhilm had two sons, Hans and Jens. I recently contacted Zimmer Organ Co. because our church bought a pipe organ and my father bought a pipe organ for my mother to us in their home.

My Parents Joe and Lib Talley were special friends of Wilhelm and his wife and kept up
with them until their deaths.

Your music is wonderful and I love it all. I was just wondering if you were the same Hans Zimmer who worked on my mothers new pipe organ back then with his father.

Thank you for all your talents and please respond

I personally love the At World's End song "Hoist the Colours" the only problem I have with it is that the FULL song is not on the CD, and it can't be found anywhere else. I hate the chain rattling at the end, it takes away from the song. But if I had my way I'd have the FULL song from the movie, where verses 2 and 3 are included, not just verse one.

If you make a special CD that has the full song (or have but haven't released it...) please post the news so I can go buy it!

Other than that, I love your music. Hymn to Red October, You're So Cool, everything basically.

Keep making amazing and powerful music,

Your music is by far one of the greatest and most inspirational that I have ever experienced.

I don't know if you can fully comprehend what you have contributed and how much you inspire the planet through your music. I always found myself buying the soundtrack to a few of my favourite movies, it wasn't until 4 months ago that i realised they were written by the same brilliant man - you.

You are truly gifted, and I look forward to experiening more of your inspirational work in the future.

Keep up the amazing work. You will truly go down as one of the greats.

An inspired fan,

Hans Zimmer, just quite simply blown away by the music.
Beautiful, Beautiful Stuff. I would suggest to otheres to listen to Run Free from 'Spirit', a little know film, but with some beautiful music.
I would like to ask permission to arrange, the opening phrase from that particular piece, for brass band. If anyone has a contact for Hans, or knows who i should get into contact with, please let me know (

Please use much more French Horn in your compositions. Your music rises to higher levels of emotion upon each useage of this sound, carrying the listener deeper into a heroic feeling and beyond, stretching the emotional limits even further, and isn't this what great score writing is supposed to do?

On a podcast, Hans Zimmer said that he'd love to, 'Take a break from score-writing in 2008, and do some touring... work with the local orchestras...'
Has anyone else heard about this? If so, any ideas on the whereabouts of his tour destinations? =D
