Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.
Have to agree because if you havenít an interest in Lorneís work then just donít goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply donít click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You donít have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>
> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! Iím scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????
How pathietic that it bothers some ,that some of us are excited about another composers music. Get a life people. Balfe has become a great composer this year so give him a break . If you donít like it , you can find another forumI agree, I'm shocked no one is talking about how great Ramin Djawadi's score is for The Mountain Between Us. Much better than this new Lorne Balfe score, I'm mean really, this Geostorm score is just a constant reminder to other scores from RCP from the past. Nothing original here. Only the track May Day is memorable.I like it too but I don't understand why this thread is full of slobbering fanboys while nobody is talking about, say, Kingsman 2 which is just as good. I don't want to stop anyone talking about his music but did we really need every day this year for someone to go "oh my god I can't wait for Lorne to release another unreleased cue from Ghost in the Shell"? It doesn't contribute anything meaningful and makes this site look even more like a YouTube comments section than it already does.Your right Edmund ..... how dare we take about any other composer apart from Zimmer or John Powell!  Thankfully your point of view is in the minority. There is obviously a reason why he is one of the busiest composers . Geostorm isnít original BUT itís great music and I like it at leastI couldn't agree with you more JBSO99. I don't know what's up this year because a ton of Balfe fanboys seem to have crawled out of the woodwork. He's having a very solid year but people are acting like every score he puts out is a masterpiece or something, which...nah.

So Hybrid, now that you've released the complete score for Puss in Boots, you gonna create the page for it?


!2012-07-08 10:47:05
He didn't release it, for the thousandth time


Hybrid Soldier2012-07-08 10:57:27
I'm gonna create the page, since it's out, when I'm a little less lazy !


Edmund Meinerts2015-06-30 13:01:58
...Three years later and Hybrid still hasn't created it. ;p


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-30 17:13:40
Maybe I will... one day...

Zimson reply Replies: 6 || 2014-07-17 23:14:22
Probably the best score of 2011. Henry Jackman is really underrated!


Edmund Meinerts2014-07-18 17:06:03
It's a good score indeed, but I don't think I'd put it even in the top 10 of 2011. That was a really good year for film scores (other than for Hans Zimmer, of course).


Zimson2014-07-18 21:08:04
It was indeed, not as strong as 2010, but definitely not bad. 2013 was a horrible year, though. For Hans, 2011 was a year of good scores with rather weak soundtrack releases, PotC 4 as an exception which I thought was uninspired. Hans said himself he didn't like that project.


Dudu2014-07-19 00:14:54
Hybrid (and maybe the others), do you know if Henry Jackman is still at remote?I saw that in the booklet of captain america he didn't do anything at RCP and didn't even thank Hans Zimmmer. After further research I saw he opened his studio (Sacred tiger music)and mixed his cap 2 score there


RealFfingMusic2014-07-19 06:47:29
In 2011, I think most people would agree Jackman's best was X Men: First Class.

@Zimson did you sleep through the whole 2013?


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-19 08:56:12
If you click on "See Details..." here you'd just see "Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica, CA" lol...

And this score was mainly done in the UK at Air... :)

And Zimmer is thanked... What drugs did you take ? lol

And yeah eventually they all open their own studios (mainly in their own houses or just 2 blocks away from RCP) ! :P


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-19 08:59:09
Jeez if I take the Puss in Boots page instead of Cap 2... O_O

Yeah indeed my mistake (I should sleep more ?), but the score was done the same in London...

But as I said, all these studios, Sacred Tiger, Arata Music (Jablonsky), Silvertone Music (Djawadi), 5 Cat Studio (Powell), formerly Wavecrest studio & others are just nearbye, Jablonsky is 5 minutes away from RCP and did come back to Hans' studio for TF4 so...

Glorious score by Henry Jackman, with the dinamism of John Powell for the animated movies and a sound similar to The Mask of the Zorro of James Horner. This is a wonderful score of Henry Jackman who make his better jobs in the animation, scores like this or Wreck It Ralph are simply excelents

Warfighter reply Replies: 4 || 2012-05-16 03:03:00
Didn't know were to put this so... Does anyone know why 2 upcoming animation films from Dreamworks Animation will not be scored by someone from/associated with RCP? Rise of the Guardians will be scores by Desplat and The Croods by Silvestri.

Maybe it's just a coincidence but this has not happened before i think.


Mr. Charles2012-05-16 04:38:52
This is no coincidence, it's an error, and it has not happened before. Hans Zimmer is in charge of the music for every Dreamworks Animation film. Wherever you saw that has it listed wrong


MisterFreeze2012-05-16 11:14:15
@ Mr. Charles : An error? I don't know for "The Croods" but Desplat is confirmed for Rise of The Guardians on IMDB ... see it yourself


Ds2012-05-16 13:22:09
Yeah, the announcement of Desplat & Silvestri were posted on filmmusicreporter.com some weeks ago. I found it very disappointing, because John Powell was initially supposed to be in charge for "Rise of the Guardians"....


Mr. Charles2012-05-16 13:45:21
Really? Hmm, very interesting and disappointing indeed. I wonder what fell through and why it won't be RCP...

Papapalpatine772011-10-17 00:16:54
Henry Jackman?! What happened to Harry?


Miles2011-10-17 05:46:03
I think Harry was too busy writing "Cowboys & Aliens" to do "Puss in Boots" as well. Doesn't really matter though--I'm starting to really like Henry's work, so I was really looking forward to this!


Papapalpatine772011-10-17 07:06:32
Seeing as how this is a Shrek spin-off, I was expecting Harry to do it. Oh well, maybe he's moved on from Dreamworks Animation


Feliz2011-10-19 01:02:12
Have you listened to the samples Rapapalatine? I'm quite happy Harry didn't do this one! Nothing he's written on his own (so that excludes the first Shrek score) has really held my interest at all since the first Narnia. This score, however, sounds amazing! I hope the full score is as impressive as the samples!


Papapalpatine772011-10-19 06:56:43
No, I never listen to the samples. I don't know why, I just never do. And it's PAPA. Clearly you've never seen the Robot Chicken sketch. h t t p://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F1d3QWsyk0&feature=fvsr
