Hybrid, what did Danny think of what Hans was doing? Since he tries to claim that no Batman composer after him wrote a "theme"...Okay, so I'm not a fan of Balfe's; I think it's objectively the case that much of his music is very, very similar to work he's already done (seriously, how many times has he made obviously variations of Journey to the Line / Time?). However, his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO, not sure how one could expect more than that. Ironclad is actually a good example of thisActually Hybrid my comment is based on their separate  interviews years apart. Zimmer's arguably dismissive comment years ago and Elfman's arguably stern remark about his theme being the only Batman theme, of recent note. <br><br>If they are both good friends who go to each other's barbecues on Sundays and drink beer together, more power to them. If they have a stellar working relationship, well, I obviously am not privy to that, but good on them. However based on what I've heard my impressions don't lean towards the latter.<br><br>If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. <br>  <br><br><br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.
Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?
Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>Why you feed the troll?<br><br>Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.
here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1. Enhancing the work of Vangelis for a project he has always admired.<br>2. The chance to work with an absolutely open palette of sounds<br>3. The opportunity to truly reinvent not only film music but MUSIC.<br>4. Ability to work with Denis Villeneuve, a man who gets scores nominated for the fact that they are innovative.<br><br>How did Hans fail here?<br><br>1. Wallfisch, a very fine composer is not a synth guy.<br><br>2. Hans does not give a shit anymore, seriously.<br><br>3. An imposed composer on a passion project rarely works<br><br>4. Johannson's work on Arrival is so beyond Zimmer's abilities that he had to go secure.This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1.

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...

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
