Just realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)
That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.Are you going to visit Russia?!) We are waiting for very much!)He posted it before this site added the tracklist.
Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.
Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.

Hello Mr. Zimmer,

i saw your great concert in Oberhausen. But we had bad places at the side of the stage and we have not seen very much of the light show and many musicians.

So there will be a Live DVD of one concert? PLEASE. This would be so amazing.

Greetings from Frankfurt

Dear Hans Zimmer,
thank you and all of your musicians so much for the more than fantastic concert in Oberhausen yesterday! It made us having goosebumps all over and having an unforgettable night!

Lieber Hans Zimmer,
vielen Danke für dieses wunderschöne Konzert in Berlin. Ich bin so begeistert, ich kann es nicht so richtig in Worte fassen. Danke und hoffentlich auf ein Wiedersehen

I read what you recently had to say about how difficult it was to do the music for "Batman vs. Superman", and how you won't do any more 'superhero' scores.

While I haven't the vaguest conception of how difficult it must be to compose new music, I wanted to say that I was very impressed with your new theme for Wonder Woman, and if you were to do a full score based on that theme alone, I would gladly pay $20 for it.

Regardless, I have been a huge fan for years and will continue to look forward to anything new that you do.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,

I was in Hamburg yesterday to attend your concert.
I've been hoping this was going to get great, but I did not expect THAT!!
It just blew me away.
From the first second to the last note: Fantastic, mindblowing, magic - just perfect!
Also your words about Heath Leadger and Aurora - GREATNESS!
A huge Thank You to You and all the musicians for this unforgettable night
YOU HAVE TO RECORD A LIVE DVD... I promise I'd buy at least 10. One for me and 9 for the coming birthdays of friends...

Thank you and again thank you,
Matthias

Dear Mister Zimmer,

Last Thursday, I was at Palais 12 in Brussels for your Live Tour and I wanted to thank you and your team for this incredible, unforgettable performance. I have memories forever !

but beyond that, I would like to thank you so much for your heart-warming words on "Aurora" theme.

You showed that you are not only an wonderful music genius, but also a very, very beautiful human being and it makes me admire you even more for that.

Thank you for this heart-warming moment of grace,

Solene

Hans, I absolutely loved your performance in Brussels, Palais 12.

I REALLY HOPE you will release an audio CD or even video of a recording of one of the Hans Zimmer Live on Tour 2016 performances!!!!!!!!

Mr. Zimmer I'm really impressed by your musical compositions. Hopefully someday could compose a melody for the story of my book "El Precio de la Suerte" (The Price of Luck). Just my dream : )

Hello Hans,

Pretty sure you won't really read this because you get so many messages, but I'll give it a try anyway! I'll be coming to your concert on the 24th of May in Rotterdam (in the Netherlands, my home country). And it would just mean the world to me if you'd perform ''Now We Are Free'' from Gladiator that night, because it's kind of my life's anthem, haha. I know you probably have a strict regime and order of songs you use in your concerts (and maybe this song is already in it), but I just wanted to give this a shot because it's the most beautiful song ever and I'd love to hear it live.

Thanks!

Hi Maia,

I went to his concert in Brussels yesterday, and you won't be dissapointed ;-)

Hans Zimmer,

YOU HAVE TO READ THIS. First of all your music and soundtracks for the large amounts of movies you cooperated with are masterpieces, especially in Batman V Superman. But this is a suggestion. AS AN HOMAGE TO THE DCAU, JUSTICE LEAGUE , JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED, CAN YOU PLEASE REMAKE VERSIONS OF THE THEME SONGS OF THE TWO SHOWS AND USE THE THE FIRST THEME FOR PART 1 AND USE THE UNLIMITED THEME FOR PART 2. This will bring out the glory of this legendary group of superheroes and the tv show which once was home to them. Seriously, please do this.

Reply or not, please do consider this!
Thanks!

Mr. Zimmer,
greetings from Portugal.

First of all and as you may imagine already, I am a huge fan.

I have a question which I think all of your fans that never have seen a live concert yours already made, but I would like to ask you, when / if there is some thought to come to my country or Spain in a short time.

For sure there are many fans as me asking the same all around our country.

Will apreciate your answer.
Thanks

Dear Zimmer,
First of all, I am an ordinary person. I've interested theater but not professinal. I love your music. If you can allow, I would like to use "Drink up me hearties" and "Mombasa" and "Good Authority" music for the street theater play. It's including genres satire and dramatic. It is free. Open for everyone
I wait your answer.
Sincerely

Didier reply Replies: 4 || 2016-02-02 19:05:27
Mr.Zimmer, I love your music. Particularly the themes of Pirates of the Caribbean. My favorites are Blackbeard's theme and Jack Sparrow's theme. They give me goose bumps every time I hear them, and believe me... I don't easily get goose bumps. I tip my hat to you! You are a musical genius!
Greetings from Belgium!


Edmund Meinerts2016-02-02 22:59:04
Blackbeard's theme over Davy Jones or the love theme from At World's End?


Didier2016-03-22 16:06:45
@Edmund: Blackbeard's sounds more epic. Though Davy Jones' theme is wonderful as well.


Edmund Meinerts2016-03-22 22:22:32
No way! Blackbeard's theme is...okay, I guess, but it's just a typical descending POTC-ish motif. Davy Jones' theme is SO MUCH more versatile and three-dimensional as a villain idea - it can be tragic, angry, brooding and, yes, epic.


Byron Sleugh2016-04-10 04:42:25
I love Davy Jones' theme. I did an arrangement of it for trombone choir because I thought it was pretty awesome.

Their war here-
Thank you hans zimmer and junkie xl (Tom) for creating another incredible soundtrack.
The only thing missing is that the soundtrack version of
their war here is different to the move version, and doesn't have the man of steel elements with that dang dang daga da daga science fiction sound when the world machine is destroying metropolis and batman comes to the rescue.
That was my favorite part of the Man of steel soundtrack and its such a same it's included in the opening of the film, but that a different version is on the soundtrack.
But otherwise an amazing epic soundtrack.

Dear Mr. Zimmer,
as an ambitious amateur composer from Germany and real fan of your soundtracks I'm looking forward to your concert in Munich at April the 26th.
I just composed a short orchestral version from "Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing On Rainbows" and I wish I had an orchestra like yours. But for me a midi orchestration must be enough. Here my work:

I have a question, will the music of the Tv series "Through the Wormhole" ever be released in some shape or form(especially from season 2)?
That music is just perfect, it gives me goose bumps and brings tears to my eyes. Best music i've ever heard for sure!
