I'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!
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.

How did Nick Glennie-Smith involved in that movie? And who, except Zimmer and Glennie-Smith, played and sang on this soundtrack (I mean, in the cue "Las Vegas" i heard live electroguitar, gospel choir, soloists and saxophone).


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-15 08:52:54
One little thing. Jay Rifkin (together with Al Clay) recorded and mixed Rain Man

I didn't know where to post this, so I will post it here.
Hybrid Soldier, do you know what cues Zimmer wrote for Sniper?(1993).
Or does anybody else knows anything?
Thank you. Greetings from Greece.


Hybrid Soldier2016-08-10 00:08:39
Just watch the film it's pretty obvious... Mark & Hans wrote about 5/6 cues, more action/emotional moments. Pretty cool actually, sort of Tears of the Sun 10 years before... :)


Dimitris Krommidas2016-08-10 00:41:51
Thank you for the reply.
I have an album with 33 tracks. I will try to figure Zimmer/Mancina cues.


Hybrid Soldier2016-08-10 08:25:07
I know what you're talking about and HZ/MM's cues are not in it.


Dimitris Krommidas2016-08-10 14:24:07
I see...well...it's ok..thank you again.

Diene Musik kann man einfach nicht beschreiben... Ich fühle was sehr besonderes immer wenn ich mir irgendein Soundtrack von dir anhöre oder auf Klavier spiele. Danke für diese Gefühle die du weiter gibst. Ich würde so gerne auch so inspirierend werden wie du, wenn ich Erwachsen werde. Es ist unwahrscheinlich weil ich sehr gut sein muss und dabei auch noch so viel glück haben, dass mich jemand "entdeckt" :)

leaving wallbrook is a song that touched me deeply. The blend of instruments used especially the flute had much to do with it. Could you please refer me to similar sounding songs of that nature. Panpies are beautiful but work much better with and arrangement of other sounds as in "leaving wallbrook"
Thanks
Much appreciated!

This was the first Zimmer USA soundtrack and he did a wonderful score. Extraordinary. I love the whole soundtrack, epecially the End Credits. I would like to be released a full score version (and able to be bought, of course).

Hi Hans,
I am a fan of the movie Rainman, as there was a particular song in this movie that captured my soul.... "--Leaving Wallbrook"--. I have today found all the other songs you have contributed to the movie industry. With every song that I open and listen to, I'm amazed that I haven't taken note sooner, as you have such a powerful expression. Sandi
