Any news on season 2 soundtrack?Sehr geehrte Hans Zimmer, und Ihre komplette Gruppe, Ihr seid bestimmt nicht von dieses Weld. Ich kann einfach anders meine Begeisterung nicht besser beschreiben. Ein tausend mal danke für ein bombastische CD, bitte nur noch es auf Hi-Res Audio Format zu Verfügung auf irgendwelche Musik Platform beibringen. Im voraus danke! LG, Jakob.Seems like this is going to be a Dark Phoenix situation where we don't have a tracklist, release date or cover until the week the movie releases. <br><br>I wonder if it's because Miller is still locking down the final cut and Tom's still scoring. Either way, definitely looking forward to this and the movie.Jackman's name has been taken off the IMDb page for Black Widow, so might just be one of those typical IMDb errors (I remember they had him up as the composer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout too).Thats not as annoying a difference as the choral elements for Electro's Death being so muted in the sessions.
Everan, this doesn't make any sense, actually, "I'm Electro" is the film version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider Theme", if you watch the scene in the movie again, you will notice that the film version has the little fragment at the 0:13 seconds mark of "I'm Electro", while the unreleased "Itsy Bitsy Spider" listed here doesn't have it, better saying, "I'm Electro" is actually the true film version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", while the version we know is just a Alternate.You can find it easily on Youtube today, by the way, I can't find the alternate of Electro Showdown Part 1.mpolonest123, actually "unused source" is listed here, it's just with a different name "Farewell", I guess it was meant to be used between "Sins of The Fathers" and "Max Electrocuted", also, you've mentioned a film version of Norman's death song (Which is "Sins of The Fathers"), and If I'm not wrong, that track has just one version...Anonymous, I think he's referring to the film version of "Spidey Logo", the one in the official album releaseDT-2017, The film version of "Harry's Transformation" mixes "Sum Total" with the part between 2:04 and 2:58 from "Special Projects", but with less instruments and a additional electric guitar. I actually like both versions, if you hear the film version, it actually sounds like it was just edited in last hour to fit in the scene, while the version in the album, I'm almost sure it was meant to be used in the full scene, you know, the uncut scene, with the parts as Harry's teeth growing, his column being fused (or whatever is that thing), he looking at the screen, and more...but then they deleted the fragments, and for Zimmer the last hour plan was just throw the intense part of "Special Projects" into the song, and for me, that worked well, I would like to hear the Intense parts of the two alternates of "Harry's Transformation" isolated.
There’s a 3-minute clip of the truck chase on YouTube and I have to say the score sounds pretty cool. A lot of string/percussion work with an awesome electronic motif for the new “Terminator” model. Also, Brad Fiedel’s theme is back. ;)Hmmm, where do you have found the alternate of Electro Showdown Part 1? And what is the track "Farewell"? It is meant to be related to the Norman osborn scene? More likely "Sins of the Fathers" track?, I think not, because the track in that scene is 3 minutes long, while this "Farewell" is just 1 minute long<br>Also, you missed some tracks: Film Version of "Electro Showdown Part 2", Film Version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (which is actually the original version of the Album mix, yeah that one which was cut and renamed to "I'm Electro), an Alternate of "Truck Chase", and "Sins of the Fathers" which I mentioned before.<br>There's also two more alternates of "Flying Montage", one which is just 40 seconds long, and the film version, which doesn't have anything to do with the original version and the two alternates listed here.<br>And yeah, we can't forget about the second alternate of "I'm Spiderman" which is the film version of the track, and it was actually released in the album mix!Isn't his problem when people like Bruckheimer wanted a specific sound and give no freedom in his movies.<br><br>He works for what is given.I think Lorne already has enough noise behind her, for my liking I should start to give way to quality instead of quantity.ASCAP shows that "Farewell To Lilliput" is credited to Jackman/Willis. Is it correct or there is only Jackman? Just thought may be there is a typo on the site.
Any news on the soundtrack for Jack Ryan season 2?I was hoping for Ramin Djawadi to compose The Eternals, well Joseph Trapanese is a good composer so its good news.John powell is flying lowkey now which sucks, His X3 score is just jaw dropping. The Eternals would be perfect for him cause he'd make it epic but Joseph Trapanese is scoring that Surprised Jablonsky hasn't tackled DC or Marvel yet eitherDamn i miss Klaus, he needs a damn come back. Stupid talentedpush...<br><br>please add them...

Just out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!

Poor journalism, if you ask me...

Did you cross check any of this ? ;)


Knight2019-01-30 13:34:28
Yep, cross-checked all of them with the complete score


Knight2019-01-30 13:43:38
Thankfully Rabin almost never significantly changes his cue names, so all of these except for Words are identical to the cues on the complete

Thanks for all the updates, Knight. Appreciate your work.

Keep it up!


Hybrid Soldier2019-01-30 22:48:27
You cross checked nothing, you took a look at what I wrote... lol


Knight2019-01-30 23:09:26
I assumed that's what you meant by cross-checked as Linford doesn't have a website, Harper doesn't list his additionals, and there's nothing on either ASCAP or BMI about it.

THIS, ladies and gents, is the greatest MediaVentures-RemoteControl score. No way you can convince me otherwise. lol! No seriously, even The Rock and Crimson Tide are inferior. The Armageddon score has it all, breathtaking and epic action cues, powerful dramatic cues, adventurous pieces, comedic cues. It literally covers the entire emotional spectrum. What other score can do that? Think about it and you'll see that I'm right.

Cheers,

B.


JR2017-09-20 14:12:15
mmmh not for me, even The Peacemaker or Deep Blue Sea (both ****) are superior than this one! (I’ll give it a *** 1/2).


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-20 16:25:42
Armageddon is great fun, but I can think of plenty other scores that cover that spectrum of emotions. At World's End certainly does, and then some.


rockhound2017-09-20 17:47:58
i think Armageddon is better in covering of all emotions than Pirates III, because there is one more thing the music has to do in Armageddon....covering bad acting. without the music, all emotional scenes with bruce willis would have been a joke. he acts really bad in these scenes, but the music works wonders.


Armageddon2017-09-21 09:05:39
To rockhound,

With all due respect, sir, that's a stupid statement. Very stupid. Guess you're mad that Rockhound wasn't the main character. How is Willis acting in those scenes bad? He's not overacting, he's not crying-screaming like a little girl. His character is actually very grounded. In the scene with Liv Tyler at the end, he is actually watching a picture of his real daughter. It makes it all the more real. He's very quiet and the performance is realistic. Nothing over-the-top. And people absolutely love that scene. Go to YouTube and read all the comments under the video. So, having said all of that, what exactly is your problem with it? You want him to go all crazy emotional like Nic Cage in Face/Off? Is that it?


Armageddon2017-09-21 09:28:44
To Edmund Meinerts,

I admit I never really got the chance to listen to the entire At World's End score. But now you sir got me interested and I will check it out.

Cheers.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-21 11:31:24
So rockhound...your argument is that the score is better because the movie is worse? That's a new one, gotta admit... :D

to Armageddon, do it! The complete score, if you can. It's incredible!


Meta2017-09-21 14:15:16
Total video game score, circa 98. This is one of those scores -
my first - that you just didn't get enough of no matter HOW many cds they released of it. Hell, it wasn't until 2000 when I finally got the complete score on 2 cds. Sadly, by that time I burned out on it...


rockhound2017-09-21 18:49:34
@Armageddon

1. i love the movie. 2. rockhound is the most annoying character in the whole movie, but at least he has a cool name. ;) 3. bruce willis is smiling in almost all his emotional scenes and not just in this movie. but you know, in germany the movies are dubbed, so his "german" voice and the music helped alot to make these scenes nontheless convincing. to be honest, the goodbye scene was even more sad than the dying scene of leonardo dicaprio in Titanic. so you see, what impact the music had.

@Edmund

i didnt say the movie is bad, just bruce willis in a couple of scenes. so....the music had alot more to do than in Pirates III. the impact of the music in Armageddon must be way stronger to make these scenes work than in Pirates III. in Pirates III these scenes would have been also convincing without the music, because the acting was strong enough. but nontheless the music in Pirates III adds alot to the scenes and makes them stronger. just my opinion.


Edmund Meinerts2017-09-22 12:39:50
Yeah, but the quality of the acting beneath the score doesn't affect the quality of the music.


rockhound2017-09-22 17:31:37
maybe quality is also not the correct word. its the function of the music. i just think the music of Armageddon is much stronger in its function as a filmscore than Pirates III. i also think the themes are stronger and rabins main theme is used in a wide range. but this also a matter of taste ofc.


Armageddon2017-09-25 09:47:50
To rockhound,

Well sir, apparently you just don't like Bruce Willis. That "smiling" you speak of is part of his charm as an actor. That's just how his face is. I don't have a problem with it, and honestly I've never heard people complaining about it. Until now. But fair enough, you have the right of an opinion. I'm just sharing mine.

Cheers.


rockhound2017-09-25 16:59:47
@Armageddon
i have nothing against bruce willis. he got an Golden Raspberry Award for that role, so im not the only one who think, he did not his best job in that movie. but hey, in the german version it worked for me and the movie is a great ride nontheless. :)


Armageddon2017-09-26 13:45:10
To rockhound,

I knew you would bring up the Razzies. I'm sure you know these awards are meant as a joke. Even the guy who created them said so. I mean Jesus, even Stanley Kubrick was "nominated" for a Razzie. And for his masterpiece The Shining!! So the last thing any person can do is to take these awards seriously. But even if we do take them seriosuly, Willis in Armageddon was nominated for Best Actor for a Blockbuster Entertainment Award. So the awards cancel each other out. And we're again left with our own opinions. Whether he did his best job in Armageddon, you are going to get different answers depending on who you ask. Still, fact of the matter is that this is one of his biggest, most popular movies. Everyone knows Armageddon. And not only the movie. The score and the soundtrack are absolute blockbusters as well. Hugely successful and popular. And that's what matters at the end of the day.

Cheers.


Meta2017-09-26 15:38:34
LOL @ Razzies
Back in 98 you had a choice between TWO comet apocalypse movies: Armageddon or Deep Impact. Armageddon was the popular vote, after the popularity of the Rock...Let's just say I never watched Deep Impact - and their "selling" point to try to one up Armageddon, from what I recall, was Morgan Freeman as the first black President ever seen in a movie....Yawn.

Whatever.

Anyway, great score. The movie wound up boosting Bruce Willis' career even more, and it helped pave the way not only for Trevor Rabin and Harry Gregson Williams careers, but also Zimmer and Bruckheimer...And of course, Ben Affleck, and other cast members, who would go on to shine in other movies.

This film and its score is SO powerful (for me anyway), all I'm gonna say is I'll never watch it again, because I simply CANT...That goes double for the score, which is rousingly awesome.

Then again, this movie serving as both the alpha and omega of a relationship I had at the time probably has something to do with it. This is what happens when you take film scores and use them as your own personal emotional, historical "diary"; you tend to appreciate them as the years go by, but never return to them because of all the energy you put into them.

does anyone know on which tracks did Hans work on?


Prott2012-08-30 20:46:59
I believe it's "Asteroid Chase - Shuttle Crash" (but none of his music is present in this score).


sone2012-08-31 00:32:51
unfortunately not. But now I took this Asteroid Chase track and compared it to the tracks on this list and my conclusion is that none of them contains music from it (except the main theme muisc which wasn't composed by Hans anyway). SO nothing here :)
