Sure, Home sounds like a country version of Time, but is so underrated.. the whole score is very nice but nothing compared to Pirate, except Finale maybe.came back to this one for a while. always found "silver" and "home" very soothing.@Superultramega<br><br>What's odd is that the PR theme was used in the marketing. Same with Zimmers material being used in the Justice League trailers, so obviously the studio liked it enough. Probably the directors choice.@superultramega: The three Star Trek movies are compose by the same composer, and the producer is J.J Abrams.<br><br>And the theme is the same.The score enchances the more emotional and physcical side of the character, and i love that.<br><br>I believe this movie don't benefit a more classical adventure score, reminds (outiside, the movie is an adaptation for the 2013 reboot) the vision of Jason Graves for that game, saving distances.<br><br>And yeah, there is a ideas everywhere the score.
The thematic continuity complaint is a problem with the movie industry in general now. Not just Pacific Rim. It's a problem with Marvel, DC, and hell, any movie series really. Even the new TMNT movies, as good as Jablonsky's score for the second one was, still couldn't keep the original themes. <br><br>The only ones that do keep the original thematic material lately have been Transformers, Star Wars, Star Trek (at least the first 2's scores I don't know about the 3rd's), Pirates of the Caribbean, a few animated film series, and Harry Potter. <br><br>Not sure if this is a director or composer fault (probably director/studio), but it's just something we're going to have to deal with for a while until the next phase of film score trends come along.I think one of the things that plague this score (and many others) is that nowadays everyone feels the need to not only have a opinion, but share it as quick as possible on social media or message boards. But music isn't always likable at first listen. Usually (and I speak for myself here, but I'm pretty sure any people feel the same) the quicker I love a song, the quicker I'll get bored by it and forget it. On the other hand, scores or songs that took me a few listens to fully appreciate tend to have a much better longevity in my playlists.<br><br>At first I wasn't impressed by this new JXL effort and, if I had listened to it only once or twice, I would have quickly labelled it as "typical JXL drummy stuff but not as cool as Mad Max". But after seeing the movie and giving the album a few more spins, I'm now ranking this among his best scores. It's packed with crazy ideas popping up everywhere, neat sound effects, an epic main theme and a few very touching light moments.<br><br>I'll admit it's a tough listening experience, mainly because of the very long tracks which sometimes tend to 'hide' the great stuff. But it's so damn worth it. In the context of the film it's simply awesome and in perfect sync with the pictures, it enhances the emotion, the action and the epicness in a way not many scores do. Junkie XL definitely improved over the past few years. Of course this score bears his mark and his sound, it's certainly not a classical score, but it's incredibly rich and detailed. It's just not obvious, and requires a bit of patience and perseverance. I'm happy I didn't judge it immediately, and I can only invite you to spend a little more time with it before dismissing it (and its composer) publicly.<br><br>Just my 2 cents :-)There are some fun action cues and an interesting mix of electronics that sounds like a hybrid of Tron Legacy and Chappie but is honestly so forgettable outside of that. Why on earth did they opt out of using Ramin's themes? <br><br>It would be like if POTC2 came out and instead of using "He's a Pirate" or any of the other motifs, Disney hired a Hans Zimmer protege to come in and write their own take on the material. When I go to see Star Wars I expect Star Wars. With this I expected at least ties to the first one.So I'm guessing no one knows if Zimmer did this or not?It is sound like that.<br><br>Multiple times in the score, there is sounds like Tron
I just said this before and I want to say it again: <br>Shao industries sound like Tron LegacyAt least Tomb Raider and A Wrinkle of Time have a theme.Agreed. Itís simply not that memorable. Out of Pacific Rim 2, a wrinkle in time, tomb raider, and hurricane heist I thought for sure at least ONE would be a hit. Unfortunately all four of them seem pretty forgettable. Really hoping Hans puts something memorable and iconic together for X Men Dark Phoenix.The first movie has memorable theme and enjoyable action tracks, this one, has one or three actions cues i have enjoyed, more than than i expected, but the main theme is forgetteable.<br><br>Jablonsky would fit if is the Jablonsky, for example, for TF5 or first Transformers (and i am guilty pleasure fan for Battleship)<br><br>And now i lost respect in the whole internet :Dyeah but this movie would be better fit for a jablonsky score.<br><br><br>he has bigger themes and a richer sound<br>
I will said this, is more enjoyable than Hurricane Heist.<br><br>But the first was more memorableI think have a lot of depth in there, the orchestrations, the tension (reminds a lot of Herrmann) and his main theme.<br><br>And yes, is one of the best of this year, for the moment.Nathan Stornetta. the music in the video sounds really good. im looking forward to this release. is there also a chance to purchase the music from Kynren?It is out. Not bad but it doesn't sound very epic or memorable. Tomb Raider had better moments.<br><br>The orchestration is so empty.<br>I don't think it's one of JNH's bests, but it's really one of the best scores of this year, until now.<br><br>I think it will probably be surpassed by his other scores coming this year, especially Fantastic Beasts 2

@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? Thanks

Hey Guys, you have to add London Has Fallen by Trevor Morris in his Llst

rockhound2016-03-04 08:37:19
the score for London Has Fallen is available since today at amazon.

MacArthur reply Replies: 3 || 2014-02-22 06:18:49
Probably one of his best scores.

MacArthur2014-03-18 17:18:55
Just bought this and I really like it.

Edmund Meinerts2014-03-18 19:42:41
If you just got it then how did you make the first comment?

MacArthur2014-03-18 20:39:44
From watching the film. Now listening to it without and just as a score is really good.

Hybrid: can you please add the complete score from Fire with Fire with the tracklist in chronolical order?

Bondo reply Replies: 1 || 2013-12-06 17:37:50
In regard to the previously-mentioned E-RING score, it appears that the Full Digital Album is now available on Trevor's Site:

It still only lists "Track 1" though, and I'm not brave enough to see what happens when I charge $5 to my credit card lol

Bondo2013-12-06 19:30:34
Just a heads-up, per Trevor Morris, that link is not currently supposed to work so DON'T USE IT!

Bryan Fury reply Replies: 1 || 2013-09-05 11:47:57
the score Fire with Fire complete by Trevor Morris complete has been leaked
46 tracks!

Hybrid Soldier2013-09-05 12:26:32
It hasn't "leaked", it was free to listen to at Cutting Edge's site for many months...

Complete Score please

Edmund Meinerts2013-08-03 23:53:47
Really? The movie's no longer than 90 minutes and the album is pushing 70. I wouldn't be surprised if everything is already on there. Certainly there weren't any significant cues missing from what I could hear.

For fans of Trevor Morris: at Cutting Edge Film Scores you can listen to the complete (or at least almost complete) score) from "The Firm" series; also "Fire with Fire" among other things.

Any news about the "Vikings" series?

Mike reply Replies: 0 || 2013-03-25 20:06:13
White House Air Attack sounds a lot like Battleship mixed with Modern Warfare 3.

Just found that Trevor Morris seems to prepare a store for his records:

h t t p:// i am already waiting for marine2 and e-ring :)

Thanks for the update! I'll be keeping my eye on this as well, especially for E-Ring

Any news about if Mark Mancina was signed to score this movie?

Fantastic film and score, however a section sounded a lot like one of the themes from the Pearl Harbor soundtrack

Ds2013-03-23 12:10:56
I noticed it, it's almost a copy/paste from Pearl Harbor!

One hell of a fun action score! The soundtrack album has the same flaw as most Brian Tyler's score albums though, it's a bit too long.

Hybrid Soldier2013-03-20 22:45:01
But, on the contrary to Tyler's usual albums, it's in chronological order, that's one cool thing about T. Morris !

And it's really a different listen when you've seen the movie, which is absolutely btw, really cool actioner ! :)

Trent Easton Navarro2013-03-20 23:17:05
I wish Tyler would do that as well. I once programmed one of his scores in chronological order, and it was a much better listening experience (still too long though :P)

Yeah, that makes sense. At first I didn't care much for Danny Elfman's Oz score, but after having seen the film I enjoyed it a lot more. Had that with more scores as well. Film indeed looks like a fun action flick!

Cloud2013-03-21 13:50:10
If someone told me this was Brian Tyler's score for Battle Los Angeles 2, I'd probably believe him ;)

Hybrid Soldier2013-03-21 15:06:15
Something to do with Aaron Eckhart, maybe... :P

Actually 2 guys who worked on that score are regular Brian Tyler collaborators... So don't worry if Iron Man 3 sounds a bit like that ! :P

tomPoland2013-03-22 18:36:33
Let's face it - Iron Man 3 will kick a**!!! Tyler is the best action score composer these days.

Little question for Hybrid: is Trevor Morris still a part of RCP? I just read 'Olympus has fallen' booklet, and there's no mention of RCP, only "Trevor Morris Music"...

Hybrid Soldier2013-03-20 00:35:55
He's not, he has his own studio, like for instance Jablonsky (Arata Music).

Still works with some RCP people... ;)

Some cool stuff in that score btw ! SEAL Helicopter Incursion !!

Ds2013-03-20 07:22:34
