I'd love to see Hans do another historical epic, for the record. I'm sure he'd say he's moved on from that sound, but personally, I miss it. That being said, Harry Gregson-Williams did good work here. Even if he then copied and pasted whole sections for Narnia. lol.Music editors loved their Gladiator temp too muchWhat was the reason of their swap? Why did Hans Zimmer quit Kigdom of HeavenHybrid wrote somewhere here that something happened between Streitenfeld and Ridley during Prometheus,and that was why HG-W was brought on for some rescoringI was wondering about this too. Like all of a sudden, after a couple of Ridley Scott collaborations, he disappeared.
Streitenfeld's score for "All I See Is You" isn't added to this site. Does it mean, that Marc left the company?Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5
Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing ó but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>Oh wow! Thatís all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Canít insult me! I am genuinely curious. Whatís this about The Last Samurai???
I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.

LOL HYBRID, I LIKE YOU SO FOR DELETING ALL :D

We all know the rules. Don't like getting your posts deleted? Follow them.


Damien, Moderator2015-03-27 20:45:52
Wrong assumption, it is not Hybrid that deleted the posts.

A new "300: Rise of an Empire" trailer was just released. It contains some really great music, could it be something from Junkie XL? It reminds me of some pieces of "Man of Steel". If it's a taste of the actual score i tell you it's amazing.


Ds2013-12-04 23:48:27
Nevermind, i just found out it's an Audiomachine track.

according to his twitter, it seems like he has been hired to score the new Mad Max movie


Macejko2013-10-12 22:14:28
Anyone who is not Beltrami is fine by me.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-12 22:55:44
So many names have been floating around that one. Beltrami, Powell, Christopher Young...Honestly, I would have been fine with any of those guys. Powell is practically my favorite composer, Young is awesome and doesn't get enough big work, and it's the sort of territory Beltrami thrives in...dark with a humorous twist. Any of those three would have done a great score I think.

And the best they could come up...is Junkie XL? That's just lame.


Ds2013-10-13 01:31:24
Edmund, right now we can't really judge Junkie XL abilities in film scoring (this one doesn't really count to me). I won't judge him until i hear what he'll come up with for 300: Rise of an Empire.


trent easton navarro2013-10-16 23:01:55
Not sure how one goes from Brian May to Maurice Jarre to Junkie XL, but we'll see how it turns out. And who knows, maybe he'll be replaced also.

Would have preferred Beltrami though. Like Edmund said, this is really something right up his alley


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-17 13:30:20
I'm just not really sure what Mr. XL has done to deserve not just one, but TWO big movies like this. What is there in his discography that shows he'd be able to handle a large-scale historical epic like the 300 sequel? A couple of remixes and the odd bit of additional music...Just goes to show that it pays to be friends with Hans Zimmer in Hollywood. :/


Ds2013-10-17 18:53:39
Maybe some Warner Bros. producers (or Zack Snyder himself) really loved Junkie XL's cues from Man Of Steel, and thought his style would fit the 300 sequel.

The same happened to Steve Jablonsky. Michael Bay found his contributions to Bad Boys II so amazing that he hired him for his next project.


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-17 19:09:04
It's not "maybe", it's what happened. And it was Zack Snyder actually... :)


Ds2013-10-17 20:14:52
Oh yay so i was right!! Thanks Hybrid :p


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-17 22:11:02
Meh. I wasn't a fan of Man of Steel in the first place, and even among that score, I thought Junkie XL's tracks were among the least interesting. I think it's pretty clear by this point that Zack Snyder and I have...pretty different musical tastes.

They should've gotten Elliot Goldenthal. :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-17 22:21:12
But thankfully the world doesn't turn around what you want ! :P


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-17 22:35:55
Thankfully for everyone who's not me, I guess... XD


MacArthur2013-10-18 07:20:29
Ed I thought General Zod was a beautiful track and I also Thought that XL didn't just get hired because he was with Zimmer maybe his style is something that Snyder liked the type of cues that he brings to the table fit the film.

And MoS was an awesome soundtrack That one and Rush were the two best of the year so far.


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-18 11:52:12
We agree to disagree. :)


Mike2013-10-18 14:37:16
I'll agree that the last 3 minutes of General Zod were noteworthy....even though they sounded like a hazy mix of Marry Me from At World's End and the Camerlengo Suite from Angels & Demons. I have a feeling, Hybrid, that the last three minutes of the General Zod suite was Zimmer, then the stuff before that was JunkieXL?


0-cool2013-10-18 16:09:08
Zimmer probably did the adagio


MacArthur2013-10-18 17:29:09
I agree Zimmer probably did the cool stuff XL seems like the rhythmic Type


MacArthur2013-10-18 17:54:54
Although I do Agree with you Ed on the Fact that XL has Had an awkward career. In terms of only working on 3 cues in MoS (Which I credit to Zimmer anyway because they are basically his stuff just re-arranged) and Additional music here and there he hasen't done much. Although I give him credit cause...hey you got to start somewhere.

listen to it now and its very good


JackieStewart2013-09-11 13:36:46
It is! A proof that Tom can do much more than poor remixes...


Evenstar2013-09-11 14:44:28
poor remixes? He is one of the only composers who actually do some very good remixes imo!


JackieStewart2013-09-11 14:53:09
I've never been a huge fan of any of them. I'd say they were "listenable", but far from being really good. Imho.
