Atli is still the best! He also never disappoint!That's sad if it is true. I remember her from videos back in the 90's and in many photos with Zimmer himself.Is Hans no longer married to Suzanne Zimmer? I saw articles from Hollywood in Vienna that hes now married to Dina De Luca.Really fun score. Definitely on par with Elfman's effort.Chronological order is near impossible for music in an open world game.
Hello everyone, Does anyone know how I can find "Homecoming" song in the movie but the film version not the soundtrack version? The homecoming song as it was played in the film itself.was anyone ever able to put the OST and the unreleased tracks together in chronological order?Year, but seriously, these genres are where Harry Gregson-Williams always succeeded  (Animation and Fantasy). I have high hopes that he will do a decent job and find back to his roots from the 2000s.i love this score so much. this comment is for Hans and team again for making such an amazing score. if they ever read what we write here lol : )<br><br>so, i am not a movie goer and many people claim and say that scores are to serve movies, and so and forth. well, i finally watched Dunkirk and it is an excellent movie. the movie did not do justice to the score imo.<br><br>here's an example. "Variation 15" on Nimrod is the "soothing" track for me in the whole score. much more soothing than "Home". i can play it in a loop. it surprised me that the cut gave it only a mere few seconds in the movie. now, i only watched Dunkirk once but i am pretty sure it played once, and for a few seconds, while "Bane" was in the plane.<br><br>another fact is that i always felt like being in a war plane when listening to "Supermarine". not an helicopter but more like a fast moving plane. that was before watching the movie and i never read about the movie. i knew it was about war and the only war machine i could think of was that. the fact that i was able to match the music with my own images says how great Hans and team were on that.<br><br>the constant tension felt in the "Mole", "Supermarine", etc. is more intense in the movie though. i liked that.<br><br>also, i watched the movie credits to the very end. i wanted to see if they would match it with the track. they did, and it ends exactly with the starting point as i expected. for me it was a cue that "the war didn't end there". sad, yes, but the effect was on point.<br><br>so okay, i am minority here in saying that a score album put together is its own thing. doesn't need a movie to exist. great movie. great score. both in their own rights!Don't want to be a downer but, really, let's all hope things won't blow to s*** like they did with Alien: Covenant or some other annoyance.
Harry gregson williams will compose mulan ??!!!!! Come on this is blowing my mind. I truly hope for hans zimmer or other great composer like desplat or silvestri. I wanted hans to score a master piece like last samurai. But no offense to harry. He is good and more than good but disney live action like mulan really wanted something special that i think the right guy is hans !Hans will cowrite the score together with Faltermeyer... :) ;)It's meHello?Great news! Can't wait to see the concert online or Blu-Ray.
Cool that you met Hans! As for Hans doing Top Gun 2, well there's some pleasantly surprising news!Yes!Hollywood in Vienna: Hans Zimmer was amazing! One of the best concerts Ive ever been to! I ended up meeting the man himself after the concert! Amazing programme!<br><br>Btw Tom cruise said (in a recorded message that was shown at the concert) that hed be working on Top Gun 2 with Hans! Pretty cool news!Really a fun and nice score from Dom.Any confirmation about Zimmer and Balfe working on the score? Or they just did the trailer music?

Looks like the sessions are out there! "Thneedville Care Chase" is the film verion of "Thneedville Chase" from the original album. Wonderful score. I hope that someday the complete thing is released (leaked).

The rest of the songs on the Interscope Records album are demos that aren't in the movie.

Interscope Records is also releasing an album of songs from the movie. Almost all of the songs were composed by John Powell, so maybe it merits inclusion on this site.

As for this album, I'm looking forward to seeing what Powell came up with for this film. I definitely think that the source material can lend itself to some good music!


jrej35552012-07-06 00:46:38
Yeah, I also wonder why the Interscope Records isn't on this site.


jrej35552012-07-06 00:48:50
Whoops, I meant to say, "Yeah, I also wonder why the Interscope Records ALBUM isn't on this site."

Another one: Is Powell actually composing Hotel Transylvania? While the movie doesn't look very good, it could be an opportunity for a very fun score!

And what's up with IMDb suddenly adding all these crazy credits to John?? (Like Cloudy 2 and Smurfs 2)

Paul reply Replies: 1 || 2012-05-04 16:27:44
Does anybody know if Powell is actually doing that new Pixar movie entitled "The Good Dinosaur"? It's been on his IMDb page for so long that it could be true...


Blu2012-05-04 18:19:45
IMDb had listed Powell as the composer of the Toy Story short film (Hawaiian Vacation) for some time (way after it's release, in fact) until his name was replaced (fairly recently actually) with Mark Mothersbaugh. So it's probably not the best place to get precise information on upcoming composer projects, especially those with release dates set way in the future.

I'd welcome a Pixar/Powell collaboration, nonetheless.

funeral for a tree uses a tune from another song, what is it? its some sort of irish folk sad song I think.


jrej35552012-04-01 01:21:09
The piano tune is from the song "Let it Grow," which is also written by John Powell for the film. (Plus, I'm definitely no expert on Irish folk music, but I thought "Let it Grow" was supposed to be slightly gospel.)

Bought the soundtrack from iTunes today. It's a pretty interesting, and sometimes strange, melange of instruments and styles, but it still has John Powell written all over it. Some of the piano and female vocals are especially lovely! A very fun and engaging score which conveys a lot of diverse moods! My favorite tracks are "Ted, Audrey and the Trees," "Truffula Valley Fantasy," "Valley Exodus," "Thneedville Chase," and "Funeral for a Tree."

Samples anywhere?


Indiana2012-02-22 15:26:40
On colosseum.de, there are some samples.
Enjoy!


jXe2012-02-22 23:13:04
@#$%!!!!!!!!! after hearing the samples, it will get a lot of playing time! Go John!


Paul2012-02-22 23:39:51
I don't know... I'm a Powell fan and all, but something is not clicking with me, at least from the samples...

I'll wait for the full CD to judge it, though.


powellfan2012-02-23 12:50:49
Does his oldness make him weaker?

The theme for Truffula Valley, which i expected to be great just like Jungle Nool's theme, is simply not great at all , too much like Elfman's.

And then for the song, i know he had tried so much, but here is what happens:
-Thneedville song really reminds me of that song from Just Visiting
-The music for the Once Ler's song is simply awful.

I hope John Powell sticks with animation, his compositions shine with them. Live action scores have too much control and are too narrow for a colorful pallet that John Powell needs.


Prott2012-02-24 11:29:37
Anonymous: That's not always the case - he managed to compose great scores for both animation and live action (The Last Stand, Paycheck). .-)


Anonymous2012-02-24 21:40:45
I am not saying he cant do it, and do it well he does..I am just saying, his best work is expressed in his animated films. My opinion of course. :0)


Prott2012-02-25 00:24:59
Ok... :)

Here, but for the song album...

www.amazon.com/Dr-Seuss-Lorax-Original-Picture/dp/B0079W6LMI /ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1329476058&sr=8-4

Most of the songs are by Powell though.

The mature track titles sound very intriguing and hopefully could contain some great music. I'm really intrigued for Funeral for a Tree, for example...
