About his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?
He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for meAw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.
Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronics
So I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter eggI haven't seen the movie yet but I like the score more with each listen. Not a classic Zimmer by any means but still an enjoyable listen at its short running time. Looking forward to the movie as well.This is me or Henry Jackman removed the electronics this year it could be affect to the predator score because I was thinking about the predator score affect him to remove electronics and turned serious & dramatic. That's weird when Henry Jackman used a lot electronics & fun since 2009 to 2017 with his scores.

According to Film Music Reporter, Ramin is gonna score another Legendary Pictures, Inc. blockbuster The Great Wall, which is directed by Chinese director Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of the Flying Dagger). Can you confirm this Hybrid?

I don't get this either. The Warcraft universe always stood for amazing music. The "main theme suites" of every WOW expansions are masterpieces. They are sung by a real choir with a real symphonic orchestra. Also the thematic use is brilliant.

I like some of Ramin his scores but he will never top the existing catalogue of Warcraft material.

It's well known that Duncan Jones is the worst director ever, and completely stupid. He probably had no idea what he was doing !


Among the producers are Pacific Rim producers, just THINK twice...


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-03 21:00:36
Worst director ever? Source Code was fantastic! Liked the score too.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-03 21:06:31
Irony Ed, irony...


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-03 21:35:44
Derrrrrrrrrrppp


RealFfingMusic2014-11-04 06:50:32
I still think they should've the game-scorers do the main theme, and let a film pro (like RD) take it from there.


Zimson2014-11-14 20:39:33
If Ramin won't use the new Draenor themes and the stormwind theme I'm out. :D (The use of the latter one is inevitable since I couldn't imagine they wouldn't show a longshot of stormwind)
However, I think it was a good decision to let a experienced blockbuster composer do the score. The cinematics are perfectly scored but scoring a 2 hour movie is a lot more difficult. I'm still hoping Hans will have a hand in it. :)

This is simply a brilliant score. Dark, epic and with distinctive themes. Furthermore, it has a truly unique style with it's use of ethnic instruments, like the dominant cimbalom (and I was pleased to hear Slovakian fuyara - also know as the shepherd's pipe - in the track "Broken Tooth"), and it captures the Transylvanian vibe perfectly. Ramin did it again. I love it.


Macejko2014-10-11 17:06:43
Oh, and guess who is scoring the upcoming "WARCRAFT" movie? ;)


Anonymous2014-10-11 18:54:50
Uhh no one cause it's not being made anymore LOL


Macejko2014-10-11 20:42:55
So I guess that movie coming up on March 11 2016, directed by Duncan Jones and produced by Legendary, currently in post-production, is just something they made up for shits and giggles :)


Frank2014-10-11 23:38:59
Ramin gonna compose for WARCRAFT!! The biggest score he has ever done?


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-03 10:13:50
I really wish they had let Russell Brower and his team score the Warcraft movie. They've come up with some fantastic stuff for the games. But I guess that was never going to happen... :b

Worry not, gentlemen, here I am, psyched and excited for this sure-thing-masterpiece of a score!

OST available in 3 weeks ! Can't wait ! :D

Hybrid Soldier2014-09-20 19:02:28
No but I'm scared I messaged him and he still hasn't showed up ! :/

I'm worried ! :/ :/


lol :)


Zimson2014-09-20 23:12:09
I really like these Gothic scores. Looking forward to this. I hope it's gonna be like Ars&#232;ne Lupin by Debbie Wiseman or the recent Maleficent.
