I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

Anyone know the chronological order for this one?

Frank reply Replies: 0 || 2015-08-19 03:12:59
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.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-03 15:34:15
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

Yes, nice Tracklist

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

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 4 || 2014-09-20 15:57:31
OST available in 3 weeks ! Can't wait ! :D


Ds2014-09-20 18:51:37
Macejko, is that you??


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.

The movie looks awful but Ramin Djawadi is always good!
