So everybody can see> this person writing as Pedro eustache is mentally ill.    This is not normal. Behaviour. I would say,  ....Lorne Makes A Good Score And The Music Is very beautiful Also With Main Theme By Hans Zimmer.Another clip was released and it's pretty good . Haven't seen the show yet but the score so far is sounding different and coolWell i'm sorry for your loss,........ Mr Eustache, there's nothing you could do.<br><br>i Don't know If your real or not real, anyone with any name can write whatever he wants...  on this forum.....      I Don't know why you want to confront yourself with fans, it's something i would never do.  Also this looks like a copy paste situation from pedroflute.com/<br><br>I never known you had a impressive career,  cheers for that......  i Will gladly take in an in depth look......surely the talent is there.....<br><br>But as a hans zimmer fan i would n't take a quick tempered character who believes in god, i'm sorry...  i wish you good luck though, i'll c u soon,..Yeah no, I'm gonna have to side with Randy on this one. I like Harry a lot, but this was definitely not one of his finest hours. Super generic.
you added credits! finnaly we can see at least who was working on it, hopefully there will be releaseAND "Monza 1976".... <br><br>Holy shit! What an awesome cue!Looks like "Need You Busting My Balls - Main On Ends" is on YouTube. Sounds pretty legit to me :DTo each his own.This is an awesome collection, but does anyone out there know how to rearrange these tracks chronologically, especially Combines Assault?
Were did you heared that? I want to listen to it too... I hope that you say is true.mpolonest123 I totally agree with you. It's not that I don't like Gladiator (is an awesome score) but I think The Last Samurai is one of Zimmer's most underrated scores and for me is one of his bests'Goldsmith's original is epic, this is boring and generic crap.It's some kind of arabic, I can verify that theory myself. It's Deshi Basar'a, Go Quickly! or Rise Quickly!Well here is my last response... this is beyond absurd... & I feel Mr MK is somebody with a weird agenda posing as a fan.  Yes, I AM THE REAL PEDRO EUSTACHE [not somebody "posing" for me] & I truly think this is useless... specially with people impossible to exchange honest, constructive opinions with... Please, whoever MK is, please, before you "tear me down" do your homework, & check out what God has blessed me with [yes, even if you don't believe in him, he is real tome... WHEN I ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDED AFTER MY DAUGHTER—THREE-YEARS OF AGE— DIED OF BRAIN CANCER, JESUS SAVED MY LIVE, SIR!!  YES, HE IS THAT REAL TO ME... IN SPITE OF YOUR MOCKERY & DISRESPECTFUL SARCASM... you might be surprised… I have composed & performed a 47 minute long, 12 movement concerto for 21 solo wind instruments of the world with Mtro. Gustavo Dudamel & his extraordinary orchestra, for example, in which I perform Raga Todi in a unique 15-hole bansuri built by myself, or when I mix a fugue Bach-style with Spanish “Bulería” Flamenca, or use a “mirror-form” in the Armenian piece in which the actual musical orchestral score—literally!—‘draws’ the silhouette of mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia, or a 21/8 piece for the Easter-European section that starts with 12 upright basses slapping & doing ‘pizzicato Bartok’, or etc… you get the picture!!…] or recording three times with Mtro John Williams [missed the fourth time just now: “Star Wars VIII” due to being in world tour w Hans,,, (recordings where in May 2 & 4)—besides MANY other movie scores with Hans, John Powell, John Debney, James-Newton Howard, etc... or building more than 100 instruments, including unique instruments that nobody else in the world has, after doing research in acoustics with highly specialized Ph, D’s in flute & wind acoustics like Dr. John Coltman & Dr. Peter Hoekje, for example… & etc, ETC… My point: this is ridiculous!! I do not have to defend myself from such absurdity... Ah, forgot to mention: I just finished a 242 pages long book on "How to Write our Own Cadenzas in Mozart Style", or my studies of “Musical Phenomenology” with Mtro Markand Thakar--disciple of the genius Sergiu Celibidache--or that I have more than 7 years of Symphonic experience, studied Indian classical music with luminaries like Pnd Ravi Shankar—yes, THE legendary, iconic, irreplaceable & historic Ravi Shankar!— & Pndt. Hariprasad Chaurasia... but wait... I'm wasting my time!!… Mr MK might not even know who these geniuses are!… He just thinks I am a "jazz player”… such rubbish!! …And concerning your mockery of the Creator, please do not make public your ignorance in such an obvious way... THE GREATEST MUSICIAN IN ALL HISTORY: J.S. BACH SAID THAT MUSIC EXISTS TO "GLORIFY GOD & TO SUBLIMATE THE HUMAN SOUL'... but of course, you might not even know who J. S. Bach is… So, I will refrain from honoring your absurdly useless, empty, & strangely biased criticism... And no, sorry, I love Hans, BUT HE IS NOT GOD... He is a wonderful human being with great talent & wonderful heart... Only God is GOD--whether you believe on Him or not--May GOD BLESS YOU sir!! I will not waist more of my time in this... Blessings to all!!
It's feel like they all look like images they use for merchandise books and magazine's, also the posters look like they are for a movie for children. But that's my opinion. The postes for all other films were fantastic, these feel like a big downgrade. Maybe that's why I don't like them.Great!Hi, how long is the average concert? Specifically the one in the Qudos Bank Aetna, Sydney Olympic Park.The first trailer had a bit of Tessa's music at the start, the second a bit of Lockdown's theme, the big kinda orchestral bit, instead of the electronic braaaaams.Got a special chance to hear a part of salazar's theme, sounds like a varied version of blackbeard's theme but it fits appropriately, very evil. You all should like it.

Interesting development: filmmusicreporter.com/2014/04/23/john-powell-to-take-break-f rom-film-music-to-compose-concert-music/


Hybrid Soldier2014-04-24 00:01:22
Well I don't think he's taking another break...

It's still the continuity of his 2012 decision to step back... Rio 2 & HTTYD 2 being some kind of parenthesis... If he has a project he cares about, he'll score it... But like I said before, don't expect him to go berserk scoring 7 films a year and saying yes to everything, like in the past... Far from it...


Anonymous2014-04-24 05:49:32
Of all the film composers I know, Powell was one of the few I did not want to step aside.


Anonymous2014-04-24 05:57:03
So, he is not returning for Dragon 3 Or Kung fu Panda 3?

Big interview with John Powell about his career here:

Anonymous2014-04-22 17:51:10
Good read! Thanks for the share!


Ds2014-04-22 21:11:11
Yeah, it's a really interesting and funny interview. Interviews of him aren't that frequent, so I enjoyed it twice more!


isildur2014-04-22 22:07:33
Cheers :)


trent easton navarro2014-04-23 14:04:15
"That’s why film music is getting terribly uninteresting. It’s a snake sucking its own cock. Everything sounds like The Dark Knight if it is big and epic. Everything sounds like Bourne Identity if it is small and spy-y."

Hard to disagree with this one.

The rest of the interview was also very interesting.

Heard this score,.....

One thing to say: a true comeback!

The score in Rio 2 is nothing but inventive, engaging, and fun.

Yes it's animated movie, and you may expect some mickey-mousing here and there, but the Powellness is still there and improving. The orchestration is highly advanced, the previous themes are smartly arranged (in some you might hear a new theme on the fact that is the old theme).

Having said that, this score still doesnt reach the level of HTTYD, Mars, Robots, and other Powell's animated score( blame the movie i guess), but it ranks one of the highest in Powell's sequel score

Standout cue: "battle for the heart of the forest" and perhaps "bola viva" (from song album)

This score makes me even believe what a mighty score HTTYD 2 will turn out to be

I saw it today, it is such a joy to watch a movie scored by John Powell. Big smile on my face!


Lambegue2014-04-05 20:45:18
Is this as good a score as everybody here seems to hope ?


Pablo Reyes2014-04-05 21:08:06
I'm sure the score will be a masterpiece. Is the movie any good, though?


Ds2014-04-05 21:50:52
I'd say that both movie and score are on par with the 1st one. They are funny, sunny and colourful. More particularly, this score is a very enjoyable, light and playful listening experience. Especially if you were missing John Powell :-)

But the real beast everyone's waiting for is, of course, How to train your dragon 2!

Track lengths can now be seen on Soundtrack dot net.

Also, the song album is out now, and having heard it, I can happily say that Powell plays a pretty big part in the arrangements of many of the songs.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-26 23:30:19
Agreed.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-30 18:30:41
The Bola Viva track from the album has Powell written all over it.


J. A. J.2014-03-31 02:49:45
The songs are pretty much necessary if one wants a complete presentation of Powell's work. Hopefully, the song album will eventually get shown on this site.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 18 || 2014-03-21 00:10:37
He has finally returned... lol


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-21 00:25:50
This is mostly an appetizer to the main course of HTTYD2, but hopefully it will be a very nice one. I can't even begin to say how much I've missed John Powell over the last nearly-two years.


Paul2014-03-21 01:08:12
Loving what I'm hearing on those samples! Glad to have our boy back!


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 01:57:26
What samples? I'm dying to hear the score! I absolutely adore Powell's music and it's incredible how happy I am to have him back.


Paul2014-03-21 02:30:50
Here:

filmmusicreporter.com/2014/03/20/rio-2-score-album-preview/


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 02:59:29
Many thanks! The samples are a masterpiece! Can't wait to hear the full score!


Brent2014-03-21 07:31:47
Yes! He's finally back. I'm so glad that I get to enjoy an old fashioned Powell score. I've missed that the past couple of years.

Now, when Gregson-Williams returns, I'll be one happy guy.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 08:35:02
Harry is doing Antoine Fuqua's next movie...


And well, as for live action for JP, I don't think it's gonna happen anytime soon... He carefully choose to score what he wants now... And he loves animation...


Leo2014-03-21 08:42:38
Don't forget the new video game, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Hopefully it gets a release. :P


Saurabh2014-03-21 08:47:02
As much as I love JP's animation stuff, which no doubt is awesome, it's his live action stuff that I'm missing the most. He adds this unique propulsion to the action with the Middle eastern and Indian(sometimes almost Bollywood-esque) drums like in Bourne, Mr and Mrs. Smith, Jumper,etc which seems to be somewhat missing in the current action scene. It's JP's this signature style that I miss sorely in live action.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 09:09:04
Well what came out of Green Zone is probably not encouraging him to return to that... lol


Saurabh2014-03-21 09:24:02
I think anyone who works with Greengrass won't have anything encouraging to tell. Like Cillian said in Inception, " We didn't have many 'meaningful' experiences together." lol

Here's hoping JP crushes it with HTTYD2.


Lambegue2014-03-21 10:09:56
At last !
On this one I won't listen to samples, I'll just wait until I can hear the full album...


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 18:17:07
What's wrong with Green Zone? The Attack And Chase cue is really good and exciting! As Saurabh said, anything by the man is as precious as gold. But that's just my opinion.


Lambegue2014-03-21 18:27:01
I think that Hybrid's commentary isn't refering to the quality of the score itself, but to the working process between Powell and Greengrass.


Pablo Reyes2014-03-21 20:15:34
Oh yeah, I see how that could be misinterpreted. What happened between Powell and Greengrass?


Ds2014-03-21 20:18:15
It's funny that you guys are speaking about John Powell, I just re-listened to "Bim Bam Smash" from The Bourne Supremacy, what an awesome action cue!!


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-21 20:25:20
Well he had to re-write Green Zone several times ?

When he understood the mess he was in on Captain Phillips, HZ called John Powell who probably had a good laugh telling him "don't do it"... I guess it says it all...


Jon2014-03-22 15:09:26
Samples sound great! Can't wait!

Saurabh reply Replies: 2 || 2014-03-21 04:54:01
I won't say he finally returned unless it's something live action. But anything by the man is as precious as gold.


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-21 13:04:18
Powell does some of his best work in animated movies, and they give him scope to write expansive, stylish music that often doesn't exist in a live-action movie. I never understand why some people feel the need to look down on animated flicks when, really, they probably offer a much better canvas to composers than most action movies. Just look at the wildly varying difference in quality in Henry Jackman's works...


Paul2014-03-21 18:00:06
Exactly. And didn't Hybrid just say Powell isn't really interested in live action at this point? I'm sure he'll do some for his friends, but it would be interesting if he took an animated picture outside of the US industry.
