I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.
So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.
That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channel
Thank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.https://open.spotify.com/ track/2UcUL4jytfVpW0jSXi3Ggi?si=ETyixI67R5u9AOU1YuClPw<br><br>very lame the cue from Max...

As to Rango Returns being a 100% copy of Pirates, you couldn't be more wrong. This is an amalgam of Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West and For a Few Dollars More. Don't believe me?

Actually the Finale track is like 6 minutes long, so if you love that track you're in luck - the actual track is longer than the version used in the film....awesomeness.

FYI the defeated lizard track mentioned here is not a Zimmer composition...But a Danny Elfman one, from the 2007 the Kingdom score...

Why its in this movie I have no idea, but wow...nice fit.

@ Mr.VFX: just saw the movie, this piece of music isn't on the soundtrack. But I think it's the only remarquable cue that has been forgotten on the album.

Btw it's an amazing movie, i wanna see it again and again!

I've just seen the film in a press screening an I have to say:
This is what cinema was made for - it's brilliant!
I only enjoyed the really good animated films like "Wall-E" or "How to train your dragon" and now I love "Rango". It's different, it's clever writing, it's looking absolutely exquisite and children are not the target group!

The soundtrack is a lovely and playful hommage to Morricone and classic themes. Hans created the perfect music to a great film. Especially the track, when Rango has to leave the city as a tragic, defeated lizard and he walks through the desert by night is Hans Zimmer as his best. Great composition, elegant arrangement - so beautyful and sad!

Does anyone knows which track it is on the CD?

Okay so Rango isn't a masterpiece. It's still very good, and I'm sure Hans didn's spend very long on it like he does his big projects. Look at Sherlock Holmes. Brilliant piece of work that took 7 months. Same with Inception 6 months or so. I think Pirates 4 will be a great score as he's been working on it for 4-5 months. Then that leaves the rest of the year for Sherlock Holmes 2. If you look at the previous sequels Hans has done (Dead Man's Chest or Dark Knight) he puts a lot of work into making sure that they excel even more than the original (not like HGW for example with shrek and narnia where the first score was always the best). So I'm confident that he'll put out two brilliant scores this year, with Rango and Kung Fu Panda 2 being nice little bonuses. Although with Powell working on the latter, it's sure to be fantastic!

So what? Who said that composer have to write 6 scores a year? Look at 1998 - Thin Red Line and Prince of Egypt. 2 masterpieces. Now he's involved in 6 projects and I bet he'll be helping others in their work. What for? For money, Hans???

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that "Underground" is by Geoff Zanelli. It starts off with his trademark wind-instrument sound, and has a dark Zanelli-ish sound to it.

Sherlock Holmes with a little Mexican accent - nothing original. Best parts are those with dialogues. Although Wagner on banjos is quite nice.

I miss Zimmer from 20th century...

Jo: I don`t think we can judge the score as a whole just by this OST. If the movie has at least 80 minutes of score (which I think isn`t anything special these days), then there are tons of unreleased cues. .-)

Jo reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-23 00:00:00
LOL @ Rango Returns. If the scene in the movie is similar to the Pirates one, I'll LOVE the whole idea of it.

I understand that many of you say it has Pirates and Sherlock in it. I'm just glad I didn't read those comment before I heard the music - Pirates and SH are two of my most favourite Hans soundtracks EVER. And clearly Rango could never come in light years range of that.

I still think that Hans and animated movies are not meant to be, it's cool if it's fun for him, but I'll never be excited for one of those. With that said, I think Rango is good enough for a Hans animated film score - especially since it sounds so weird, what with all the other film soundtracks that come to your mind. I dont think Hans 'copies' out of lack of creativity. I will believe it fits the theme of the film. Rango seems to "pay tribute" to other films so maybe the music should do the same :P

@ Adrian,

I know, you are right. It was probably a decision between Verbinski and Zimmer to homage Morricone. They both seem to love his music. And I can't blame them, Morricone is full of awesome.
However I always thought that the sound of the POTC scores in general was always more appropiate for an epic western than for a pirate film. For example, "He's a Pirate" evoques my mind with images of a cowboy shooting bad guys in the desert rather than pirates swordfighting.
Sherlock has the same feel too. Even the orchestration of the main theme has more in common with the western tradition than with detective stories.

Despite that, Hans did a refreshing job bringing new styles to genre movies. He proved that the pirates not always need a Korngoldian approach, musically speaking.

However, I would love to hear Hans do a proper western in his own way. It could be amazing.

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-22 00:00:00
John, Zimmer is possibly keeping that "Proper Western" score idea for Verbinski's "Lone Ranger". Why waste it on some soon-to-be-forgotten animated film? =)

the theme in this score, starts at 2.23 in the rango suite and is reprised in rango and beans.

It sounds very like something by ennio morricone, but I can't remember exactly. Does anyone know which morricone work it is?

I can't decide if it's a direct lift or just similar chord progressions. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

Great score btw.

For anyone whose interested, the dialogue comes in at key points, mainly with the mexican band of owls used in the trailers, and occassionally from Rango. I really didn't find it to be an issue at all. Sets the scene without the need for the movie. Anyone whose been ranging at it, try EQing it out, see how well that turns out :P

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
- Rango suite: sounded like a mix between sherlock holmes and pirates. Where is your creativity now, Hans?
- We ride, really: sounded like John Powell's HTTYD score(0:11-0:17 part) and pirates( again ). Same question. You know what Hans, you teach someone that will beat you.
- Bats: A good combination of many classical themes. But, still bad because i want to hear a new theme for this kind of scene.

Overall, decent. Too many copying-from-previous-soundtrack-that-only-zimmer-can-do
I hope you can do better on Pirates.

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-21 00:00:00
In the first place, "Parlay" is a homage to Morricone's "Once Upon a Time in the West". So as Rango is a western parody, it makes more sense here.

I wonder who's fault it is that on Zimmer his CD's are so short in playtime and that the best action cues are always left off or are bonus tracks.

Is it his decision? Or the movie studio...

Cause most other composers (RCP or not) usually give a full album representation of their music in the film these days. And not just some 'extracts'.

And the worst part is that no expanded scores of him leak like in the good old days cause those where the best...
