Widows is actually a pretty interesting score. Not one of Zimmer's best from for an isolated listening experience standpoint, but as a textual score, I was engaged for the most part. The score effectively builds momentum throughout from beginning to end and I could feel the movie just by listening to the music.Tracklist:<br><br>01. Imagine Dragons – Zero (3:32)<br>02. Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Cast – Ralph Breaks the Internet – A Place Called Slaughter Race (3:28)<br>03. Julia Michaels – In This Place (3:21)<br>04. Karol Sevilla – El lugar (3:21)<br>05. Best Friends (2:53)<br>06. Circuit Breaker (2:22)<br>07. Pulling the Plug (1:14)<br>08. On the Rooftop (1:04)<br>09. The Big Idea (1:16)<br>10. The Internet (2:47)<br>11. KnowsMore & Spamley (1:18)<br>12. Site Seeing (1:30)<br>13. Checkout Fiasco (1:33)<br>14. Get Rich Quick (1:43)<br>15. Shank (3:03)<br>16. Hangin’ Out (1:03)<br>17. BuzzzTube (1:42)<br>18. Overnight Sensation (2:52)<br>19. Separate Ways (1:04)<br>20. Vanellope’s March (0:46)<br>21. Desperate Measures (1:20)<br>22. Don’t Read the Comments (1:49)<br>23. Growing Pains (1:35)<br>24. Double Dan (3:36)<br>25. Scanning for Insecurities (1:54)<br>26. Breaking Up (2:46)<br>27. Replicate-It-Ralph (1:21)<br>28. Operation Pied Piper (2:38)<br>29. Kling Kong (3:39)<br>30. The Meaning of Friendship (2:16)<br>31. A Big Strong Man in Need of Rescuing (1:55)<br>32. Letting Go (1:49)<br>33. Comfort Zone (1:33)<br>34. Worlds Apart (1:22)<br>35. Alan Menken, Phil Johnston, Tom MacDougall – A Place Called Slaughter Race (Instrumental) (3:28)<br>36. Alan Menken, Phil Johnston, Tom MacDougall – In This Place (Instrumental) (3:20)And top gun:maverick....big 4Yeah seriously, he hasn’t done much in a year plus. He’s definitely taken some time off for touring and other things, which may be a great thing for his inspiration... who knows, but I’m guessing the time off has let his brain take a break and maybe he has a ton of new ideas for the big 3 (WW:84, Dark Phoenix, Lion King) coming up in the next year and a half. <br><br>Or maybe I’m just hopeful/wishful thinking lol.Plus, Blue Planet II came out last year. That score is as far from Widows as possible.
I'm not sure, but I think this site is not the right place to ask for copyright, since it is "almost official". But, here you can find the label of every officially released album you want, so you can ask the company labeled.That collaboration was barely a year ago. This is literally Zimmer's first significant score since then. You can't deduce a pattern from two data points.IMDb says that Lorne is one of the 3 composers of Battlefield V. I am confused.... :DWell, if you check what Hans Zimmer did recently there wasn't much material for him to write a good theme too. A lot of it was types of movies that were synth type music. I think The Dark Phoenix and Wonder Woman (apart from his amazing theme for her already) will have some good typical Hans Zimmer feel to it which I am excited for.For the first time of my life but with sound experience, I assist on that one too.  A very good job from all that team.<br>I only was surprised to not see Hans Zimmer itself and quickly understood that it was "the world of..." and not HZ live ! No regret for my first even if I'm a bit frustrated and regret my mistake ;o)<br>Do you have a tip for me to do it again and avoid that mistake again? When you purchase a ticket, it's hard, you have sometimes to go deeper to see that, finally, he's not gonna be there!<br>Have a great day U all.<br>
I wishCool Hybrid! Been at the concert in Oberhausen last Saturday. A lot better then expected to be honest. Pedro's Oogway's Ascend was very good, Pedro outdid himself there (at the 2nd Zimmer concerts I thought he wasnt that great compared to Richard).<br><br>Yeah! The hell are the other comments about though? The Last Stand is miles ahead of X2. You weren't even saying TLS was the best X-men score, you were just saying it's Powell's best score. Man people are dumbHi, I want to add some seconds of 8 track for the background of my small documentary about races, my first one, is it possibile to ask for copyright? Should I write to some email addresses?<br>I'm kind of the same way, even on a personal level. The synth and power anthems, even from the Media Ventures era, is just kind of getting old to me. The incessant momentum, the lack of thematic progression, it all wears on you eventually.
I think you really nailed how I feel about this score. I don’t personally mind the tense electronic elements (this is music that I can enjoy on its own level) but I do feel let down by the lack of a theme or any solid motif to anchor the music. Especially in the emotional cues.<br><br>The one thing that I keep coming back to is how this sounds so much like something Johann Johansson would have written. I actually really like his music style, but it is pretty jarring to see Zimmer do minimalism on this level. No objections here, but I can’t wait to get some exciting Zimmer music again.Not for nothing but it's kinda odd how Zimmer has been declining ever since, IMO, his collaboration with Wallfisch on Blade Runner 2049.... <br><br>Honestly, I've been straying towards John Carpenter's Halloween 2018 and horror synth ever since....is Zimmer retiring or something? Because I'm finding myself not into him so much, anymore.I honestly wasn't expecting much from this film on a musical level, but some tracks that are available are OK to listen to. McQueen has never been a proponent of larger-scale thematic music in his scores, he seems to be a mood-inspired person, and Zimmer can do that very, very well. <br><br>Coming back to the music, Zimmer seems to have embraced his textural roots. 2018 has been all about texture really in the action films, i.e. Black Panther's percussion layers, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Widows. Thematically, there seems to be a solemn progression for Marcus that reappears in "My Son", that relies on familiar elements (i.e. drone strings layered on top of each other, lower bass accompaniment), and some of the action textures in "We Have A Job To Do" and "Perimeter Check" is a nice callback to the Media Ventures style of things. <br><br>I'm admittedly disappointed with the fact that there is nothing beyond residually, well-anchored momentum and tension to the score,and the album length is shocking. But it is what it is. I love the underlying, throbbing synth bass ripples, I've always had a soft spot for them. <br><br>Honestly, it's a one time listen for me. I'm more excited about his dual superhero bonanza return next year- Wonder Woman 1984 and X-Men Dark Phoenix. I'm definitely not expecting him to use John Ottman's brilliant theme for the latter, although I will definitely be impressed if by slight chance, he does. The "Money" is quite soothing in a melancholy way. "The Calm Before The Storm" uses some worthwhile sombre piano treading that I'm always a stickler for.Come to Bratislava, Slovakia too.I wonder with all of the Easter eggs if Jackman will incorporate some character themes like possibly the Imperial March for Storm Troopers Or Disney themed for the Disney characters

Henry and Hans' best complete film score.

Do they have another "complete film score" together that people are not aware of?


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-24 09:26:51
Henry IV?

(which is a much better score than this one)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-24 09:36:11
Well doesn't count much since Hans didn't really write anything on that score... lol


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-24 10:16:07
Yeah I know...it was the only thing I could think of. Well, Jackman did work on stuff like Dark Knight and Pirates 3 (which if you're counting those, makes T-Mann036's comment very ridiculous indeed).

Interesting to see the cue sheet info. I love reading all these thoughts and comments. I'm going to start comparing these involved score compositions to a classic car car that been locked away in a garage from public view and comes rolling out "all shiny again" one day.......you never know what's been going on under the hood :)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 13 || 2014-03-11 17:15:02
And here is what the cuesheet says...


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-11 17:30:08
This probably isn't even 100% accurate either...it doesn't include e.g. Jasha Klebe, Lorne Balfe, Matthew Margeson and others who are credited with additionals.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 17:34:15
Of course it's not accurate... It is only interesting for Hans' involvement which is right, but it surely misses all the rest lol...


Lambegue2014-03-11 20:54:27
Yes, very interesting indeed ! Thanks a lot Hybrid


LBF2014-03-11 21:01:46
This all really confusing, Jackman said in an interview with Classic FM that Zimmer didn't write any music for the film.


Lambegue2014-03-11 21:09:48
They wanted to keep it "secret" for some time...Even on this site, the participation of Zimmer wasn't official before several weeks (I think) after the release. So maybe you just heard quite an old interview ?


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-11 21:10:02
I'm sure it's in his contract that he has to say that, LBF... :p


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 21:15:09
Interviews are made to tell lies, or why would any composer need them ? lol


Mike2014-03-11 21:29:35
So Zimmer did the Time ripoff? :D Interesting! Didn't you say it was Lorne though, Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 21:31:01
Oh I still think it's Lorne, but his name will never appear anyway...

I heard even Lorne dropped in the end and Hans finished alone... LOL


LBF2014-03-11 21:34:01
The interview was conducted just a few weeks ago around the BAFTAs, can't put the link on here, but easy to google it. Just seems a little weird as he flat out denies Zimmer being involved at all.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 21:47:59
Simply because he never admitted publicly what a mess (and a true nightmare) this film & score was !

And when you get nominated for stuff, you shut the hell up...


In private, on the contrary... lol


Lambegue2014-03-11 21:54:29
Was it the director who asks Zimmer to come and write some stuff, or was it Jackman who asked for help ?

I just saw the film. I swear that those last 20 seconds before the credits, as it showed the ships and got all loud and Journey to the Line-esque, were directly from Time. I couldn't tell whether the OST track "Safe Now" cut the cue short or if the mix was slightly different within the film, but if I didn't see a complete and total resemblance to Time before (and Journey to the Line, too), I do now.

And I find it funny that Hybrid says the score was such a mess and the director was such a pain when the score really wasn't even that good. It was serviceable enough in context, but the only music I remember was a bunch of loud WAAAAAAAAAHs for suspense, a Bourne ripoff as the pirates first boarded the Alabama, and of course, the near-carbon copy of Time. It seems like if the director was gonna be such a pain, he wouldn't have settled for the score he got.


MacArthur2014-01-28 16:54:48
I thought the score was great.


Mike2014-01-28 17:47:27
I'll admit I was moved at the end there, but that was primarily because of Tom Hanks' awesome acting, not the music primarily.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-28 20:51:00
What is so great about this score, MacArthur? Seriously. A bunch of limp action cues that are like Green Zone/Bourne with 10% the energy, and then a Time ripoff with about 10% the emotion. I fail to see what even a hardened Zimmer fanboy such as yourself could find to like in that score. It is, at BEST, serviceable, and nothing more.


MacArthur2014-01-28 21:34:12
Agreed Tom hanks was fantastic. and the score was actually entertaining for the film. the pulsing drum cues for the pirates. the theme for the navy. it was very good and moved the story well. that's all one can ask for. and it was (If you can get past Safe Now) a good action score.


NM2014-01-29 01:46:22
Generic city.

The score was the only bad thing about the film and actively distracted me at at least two points (one of which was the end). A lot of scenes were made to feel more like generic action scenes because of the music, and some of the ethnic sounds haven't been fresh since the 90's. A pity such a great film got a temp-track nightmare.


Mike2014-01-29 03:08:08
Well said, NM.


MacArthur2014-01-29 03:43:59
Ok. I still like the film & the music, to each his own I guess.


Mike2014-01-30 03:29:16
Didn't this film also use part of John Powell's United 93 score?


Russel2014-01-30 03:46:27
You like every film score it seems, MacArthur. Haha.


MacArthur2014-01-30 05:12:05
Not all Social Network sucks. Not a huge fan of the Lion King.


AG2014-01-30 09:30:33
Honestly I don't see what all the fuss is about this "Safe Now" track. I just watched the film and it worked beautifully in the scene and I was very moved. Isn't that what the score is meant to do - enhance what's on the screen? So shouldn't we be less concerned about its resemblance to other of Hans' tracks and focus on how it worked in the film? I don't know, just my opinion.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-30 12:51:07
By that logic, AG, we wouldn't have to write film scores anymore...just create a huge library of cues labeled "action" "drama" "tragedy" "romance" or whatever and cut and paste them into every single movie. Sure, it would work on a basic level. But then the films wouldn't have an individual sound to them. And that's why "Safe Now" is such a weak cue. Because instead of supporting the visuals it makes me wonder where Captain Phillips' totem is and whether he's in a dream or not.


MacArthur2014-01-30 16:11:49
I don't have a problem with it at all. The logic there wasn't bad AG because there were different cues in the film which were good. just Safe now was the only thing that was really close to Time. I don't mind it, but apparently everyone else does.


Rob2014-02-25 00:09:08
I noticed too that the last shots were scored to music that nearly exactly mimicked Time from Inception. Then I saw Hans Zimmer in the "Thank You's" at the end of the credits. I wonder how that came about. Perhaps he asked Hans's permission? It took me out of the movie a bit, but it was the end and I suspect only film music buffs would notice.

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-26 12:43:34
Hm. This score was boring enough on the original release, can't see how a complete score will change things...

MacArthur2014-01-26 17:35:07

MrZimmerFan2014-01-26 17:57:59
I have mixed feelings about this, i like certain tracks like Second Attack (i know, there is temp samples of Bourne action-strings, but is so adrenalitic), in the other side, isn't much


Scorefan2014-01-26 20:03:55
So, this version only has jackman cues or zimmer and balfe additional cues?


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-26 21:10:27
It's the finale score...

Obviously the Finale is arranged here by Lorne Balfe, actually...
