May know how to downloaddamn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOLYeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photo
Hah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.I like the tracks
Wow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2That recording footage makes it all the more baffling to me why the end product sounds the way it does.
I understand the comments about the orchestra sounding like samples by some of the comments?<br><br>If you follow his Twitter you see the BBC orchestra recording the soundtrack.Season two is cool and Balfe’s music is bigger that season 1.Bit choirs also.I love Hillbilly also but it sounds very familiar just with different guitar instruments.Paradise is so emotional and sonically more interesting to me at leastI find Hillbilly more engaging than Paradise, even much interesting dramatic cues.Memorial is heart wrenching.<br>Definitely up there for this years scores.Fantastic music but Balfe and Zimmer.You can hear their different styles in this music.<br>Very beautiful soundtrack

8 additional composers! Busy score!


Mike2013-07-17 00:16:40
If I'm not mistaken, the reason there's so many is because Verbinski made some decision that involved the need for the score to be reworked, almost from scratch, in a short time.

It seems Hans likes to take exisiting pieces of music and mixes them instead of writing new music.
Also the main theme is just another version of Jack Sparrow's theme.
I think his last REALLY good score was King Arthur.

The new "Lone Ranger" trailer states: "MUSIC BY HANS ZIMMER" !!!

I thought it was scored by Jack White, but this is AWESOME news!


Macejko2012-12-11 13:08:03
It's a proof that justice exists!


Tim2012-12-11 17:37:51
Yay! Before Hans Jack White was on the notes - at least that's what imbd said at that time ;)


Vordmira2012-12-12 00:19:10
Jack White might sing a theme song for the film which is co-written by Hans Zimmer


Mike2012-12-12 00:28:21
Speaking of films Hans Zimmer will score, did anyone see the newest trailer for Man of Steel? The music sounded very Gladiator-ish, but I don't know if that's what it was.


Mr. Charles2012-12-12 01:49:22
I hear it, Mike. It almost sounds like an alternate version of "Elysium". It's not quite what we hear on the OST. If it's not Gladiator, it's definitely Lisa Gerrard. Without a doubt


Zantlwisder2012-12-12 03:31:10
It's Lisa Gerrard's "Elegy"


tomPoland2012-12-12 13:50:15
it's terrible news - hz is making MoS, he shouldn't involve in something else
no minions, co-writers, and so on - pure Zimmer please, its THE SUPERMAN, no some B class movie


Ds2012-12-12 13:56:59
I think the music we hear in the beginning of the MoS trailer is the same track we heard in Zack Snyder's movie "Legend of the Guardians". Kind of a remix of the Lisa Gerrard song from "Man on Fire".


Ds2012-12-12 14:38:18
No sorry i was wrong, this is definitely "Elegy" by Lisa Gerrard. Sorry!


blu2012-12-12 15:17:39
I am pretty sure master Z can handle this whilst giving MoS the best he can. These guys have never failed to deliver under tight deadlines before.


tomPoland2012-12-12 15:42:06
that's the point - there is no tight deadlines! he has like 7 months to create something memorable, epic, climatic; with orchestra, choir and all that goosebump stuff

taking another project will make MoS worse that it could be, i fear


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-12 15:58:34
You speak like Hans is just starting working on MOS.

You think he was sleeping in the last 5 months ? ;)


Pierre2012-12-12 17:39:06
He's currently recording Man of Steel. That means it's written. Loads of time to work on the Lone Ranger.


Jasper2012-12-12 18:16:46
I honestly think that the coming year is going to be the most exciting Hans Zimmer year in a long time. As far as I know, he'll be doing the soundtracks for 3 major films next year, none of them sequels. All new themes, all new music. Looking forward to an amazing 2013. If the world doesn't end, that is :p


Mike2012-12-12 22:13:12
I'm excited for the same reason, Jasper, but we shouldn't get our hopes too high. Maybe he'll be rushed and we'll have another Curse of the Black Pearl that takes cues from his other movies.

In all seriousness though, I'm really excited. Especially for Man of Steel.


Ds2012-12-12 22:21:48
Man of Steel & Lone Ranger scores will certainly be great, but i think Lone Ranger is more the kind of movie that needs a true fantastic and epic score - the kind of movie for which Hans is the best.


Joshua2012-12-12 22:24:37
Score for Man Of Steel records in mid January. He'll have 5-6 months to work on Lone Ranger.


Mike2012-12-12 22:35:34

Question everybody..i know i must be very stupid to ask this but..what's the name of the original music used in the track Bats, it plays at 2.15.

Thank you


Jiri W Krecek2011-09-09 05:47:06
THe flying bat song is Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner


S2012-01-01 03:26:32
But the 2.15 bit is actually from 'An der schönen blauen Donau Waltz' composed by Johann Strauss II

@ Bast

The song when Rango walks out in the desert isn't by Zimmer. It's Danny Elfmans song "Finale" from the Movie "The Kingdom" - don't know why they used this one...wasn't Zimmer able to compose a better track?

That little track if i think its the same as what you mean, is kind of a steller reprise of the Rango theme:

The OSt version cuts that piece out and instead uses a banjo intro, while th emovie cuts right to the guitar then that piece, then the end....I found it weird. I dont know who composed it tho.

Trent Easton Navarro reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Norm

Maybe it was used in the temp track and Verbinski really liked it. I thought it fitted the scene perfectly, best piece of music in the entire film. Judging by the rest of the score it's pretty obvious Zimmer wasn't capable to compose something better.

Norm reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Trent

You're right - that track fits the scene perfectly. But if I was the composer for a movie and the director said to me: "Don't Bother - we use the work of another Composer for that scene" I would have worked my ass of the create a track a hundred times better! Just wondered why Zimmer hasn't done that.
