Saying Balfe has no imagination is beyond stupid. Take a listen at some of his work on animated movies (Home, or his work on KFP2-3), it's definitely not to work of someone without imagination.<br><br>On Fallout in particular, I honestly think he makes the best use of the classic themes in the series. That's maybe not "imaginative", as these themes aren't his, but it's definitely clever and not something every composer can do. Even an experienced guy like Michael Giacchino had 2 stabs at this franchise, and yet failed not only to give a memorable score, but also failed in using these classic themes in such a fun way.JohnWilliams Started out or rather got more into the realm of composing being doing Tv SHowsMeistermind - what’s wrong with being a TV composer ?<br><br>You sound like those idiots on Film music forum that think they know so much .The keyboard comment is exactly the nonsense said.<br><br>Fallout is one of the best action films ever in my opinion with a brilliant soundtrack.<br><br>Balfe is what in the 80s you might have called a TV composer. He has skills to get the job done but no imagination on anything. There'll be a few live bongos in the next film, a lot of supposedly live brass that sounds exactly like my keyboard, and no imagination. <br><br>That's the seemingly Chris Nolan way they want to go here. But if McQuarrie and Cruise are sticking to their mandate on making every film different, well how about (they are not going to go full Lathimos whatever), trying the Jeremy Dyson way, and go for Frank Ilfman. How about being more creative, Mansell has burned his bridges but still does excellent music but how about Richter, he can do anything, or even a Murray Gold. If you hire a pointless HZ flunkie, we'll get someone good, This used to be fine, but now with these dingdongs it is increasingly difficult<br>Balfe did produce both !!!!!!!!!!so ofcause they would sound related <br>Fallout was an excellent film and great soundtrack
In my opinion this soundtrack is very different than the others.<br>Six films and five composers, with a different styles and this soundtrack is very different.<br>For me it's a great soundtrack but the sound is too similar at the dark Knight and Dunkirk.Have to agree about Balfe and Fallout being the best mission score.would be interesting to see what he would do with bond or even Star Wars.<br>There seems to be comments on twitter that Balfe will be doing the score live at the The Royal Albert Hall.anyone know ?If you want modern, have Ludwig Göransson score the movie. Him or Don Davis. If you want to stick with RCP, I would love to see Benjamin Wallfisch take a stab at it based on his work on King of Thieves.Hello team, i would just like to add to the thank-you's, throughout the years you've been roxxin the world.<br> anyways i particularly enjoyed "time" but not for the movie instead it was used as an AMV on youtube for the japanese anime Zetsuen No Tempest. the story is epic suffice to say that it + time blew my heart away then and there. <br>So thank you very much :D...but modern
Lalo Schifrin certainly didn't need Lorne Balfe to make him sound cool.Now that would be an interesting to hear what he could do with Star WarsModern and cool? Seriously Balfe is the reason why the theme works? Let’s have balfe re write Star Wars to make it modern and cool.I think Balfe has to come back because Fallout was the first since Mission 2 the music worked.He made Lalo’s theme sound modern and cool.It's out there.
Reef 2: High TideSerenity going to be released next week<br><br>https:/ / www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KZGKX4K/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl ?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativ eASIN=B07KZGKX4K&linkId=b932ee0afd97cf3be04f644cad294734I watched again and the "thickness" in some of the low end was in fact multiple kettle drums being rapidly pounded which in fact accounts for the excess reverberation and explains why it sounded muddy to me.  I will have to get the "World of Hans Zimmer" recording that others are talking about and see if I like that one better.Personally, I do not want Balfe or Kraemer to return. I found Kraemer's score to be too restrained, and while Balfe's score is exciting, when I watched the film, I thought the music worn out quickly by the middle of the film. Too much of the same orchestrations. <br><br>I hope they go with someone new.Please add some Interstellar, Man of Steel or Batman Begins to the 2019 tour..

Has anyone heard Morris' Scorpion King 3 score? any info about this one?

Hale reply Replies: 1 || 2011-11-02 10:41:17
This score seems to be a mix between "Angels and Demons"(Choir style), "King Arthur" (Heavy orchestra with dark percussions) but it lacks GOOD themes. We can feel "Tudors" music style in a few tracks.

I think it's a functionnal score which takes its sense only in the movie.


Richard2012-01-12 06:42:07
Excellently put.

I want to remark that it all comes together rather nicely for immortals, the whole being more than the sum of its parts.

For example I feel the ending sky fight and subsequent staff credits is one of the most memorably powerful moments I've experienced in the theater.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 7 || 2011-11-17 23:53:22
Man, this is a really weak score. I thought Trevor Morris would do better on his first solo assignment but he disappointed me. The reason? TEMP TRACKS!

"Hyperion's Siren" = Inception brass chords

Second half of "To Mt. Olympus" = "The Might of Rome" from Gladiator

"Fight So Your Name Survives" = the Holstesque action rhythms from Gladiator

"Do Not Forsake Mankind" = "Journey to the Line" from The Thin Red Line

But worst of all is "Immortal Combat" and "Sky Fight/End Credits", which sound EXACTLY like "160 BPM" from Angels and Demons! What the hell? Why no creativity?

Rest of the score is dull, uninteresting along the lines of the new Conan score. What a flop.


Bondo2011-11-18 00:35:16
It's hardly a flop, it's killing at the box office. And it's not his first solo assignment.


Edmund Meinerts2011-11-18 22:50:20
The score is a flop, not the movie. And I meant first solo blockbuster assignment.


Bondo2011-11-19 03:13:50
Nah, I'm enjoying it. And it worked VERY well in the film itself.


Zantlwisder2011-11-22 08:36:42
You know what? "Immortal Combat" is 160 beats per minute! Exactly the same as "160 BPM" from Angels & Demons.


Ele2011-11-22 10:29:39
@Zantlwisder Incredible find! Awesome! I didn't see that coming. Nice one, Sherlock


Areozz2011-11-22 21:48:07
What are you talking about? this is the page for Immortals, not Sherlock Holmes...


Zantlwisder2011-11-27 01:21:12
2'20''in"Fight So Your Name Survives", the drum beats are the same in "Kraken"from POC2... but the whole score works well in the movie,really

Mp3 samples on Amazon now! I don't know if it would be best for me to wait until the movie to hear the score or not.

Miles reply Replies: 3 || 2011-10-17 22:36:14
The official site has some samples up now! Any thoughts, first impressions?


Ds2011-10-18 12:48:32
I hear only one little cue... where do you see more samples? Thanks :)


Miles2011-10-19 16:51:52
You have to click on the tabs for synopsis, cast, downloads, etc., to hear the other cues.


Ds2011-10-19 18:23:39
Ok thanks a lot! ... i hope the full soundtrack will be more epic than these cues... These are ambiant cues, with no theme...

Äh Tyler Bates 300 Part II ??? Its not so different !


NoName2011-10-09 21:38:07
A copy from Tyler Bates 300 !


Miles2011-10-10 16:25:41
Actually, there's a small score excerpt on the official site, and it definitely sounds more "Hans Zimmer" than "Tyler Bates."


NoName2011-10-10 22:47:57
Do you hear the music complete ? Do you M.D. in Music ?


Areozz2011-10-11 02:55:12
Do you M.D. in being a jerk? Mmmmm....hmmmmm, yes. Yes, you do.


Blu2011-10-11 11:28:39
No sarcasm intended but I didn't know the term M.D. can be used for anything other than medicine. Can it?


Areozz2011-10-11 14:25:44
I'm too lazy to look it up, but I'm pretty sure you're right, Blu.

This NoName guy thinks he's a know-it-all and thinks this music sounds like Tyler Bates, possibly because Tyler Bates did the music for 300 and because this movie appears to be similar to 300. It is not clear whether he has actually heard the music.

All composers have a unique style and if you've listened to the composers involved in this conversation, you could provide a statement like Miles did. NoName appears to have not a wide range of musical tastes....

*Waits for response from NoName*


Areozz2011-10-11 15:50:34
Ah, I overcame my laziness and looked it up. M.D. does indeed stand for Doctor of Medicine which makes absolutely no sense in the context that NoName used it in. Perhaps a better choice would have been "do you major in music?" to which the response could have been, "you don't have to be a music major to state when one composer's work sounds like another's."


Papapalpatine772011-10-11 18:27:12
Actually, if it sounds anything like 300, it really sounds like Elliot Gildenthal's score to Titus. Bates copied much of the themes from it and there was even a lawsuit. Now on the back of the latest Blu-ray (the digibook), there is an asterisk next to Bates' name. At the bottom it says *based on preexisting compositions not authored by Tyler Bates.


NoName2011-10-11 21:23:38
Sory iam not from America or England, Iam from Germany ind Iam a friend of Ramin Djawadi and Michael Levine. I know many composers RCP, because of my position in Germany. Doctor in German "Doktor" in Duisburg. I can not so good English but i can music and that is not English.

I hear often music before it is published. My specialist areas is Fimmusic, there i teach in munich (Bavaria). Ramin is an old fiend from Duisburg , i visit him often ! Therefor i have hear the new music.

And its really the same.

(Please no questions, idont send everybody the music)

Sorry for my bad english, i have it learn by myself.


Luc2011-10-14 16:34:23
That already was a copy of Elliot Goldenthal's Titus...


Anon2011-10-16 13:56:13
NoName, keep throwing your job title around, honestly no one cares. You can make yourself feel big by saying that meaningless garbage if you like however :) Just know that no one here actually cares. At all.
