Probably the only reason Goldsmith isn't in my top 3 is I haven't heard enough of his music. :pWallfisch is a good composer indeed, but BR2049 (and Dunkirk) were absolutely the wrong place for him. He's not a synth guy. He was originally a protege of Dario Marianelli, for heaven's sake - he's got a far more classical/orchestral sensibility. A score like Cure for Wellness is a much better fit for him. I'm not sure why Hans thought it was best to bring him of all people in on BR2049 when the more electronically-inclined Mazzaro/Kawczynski duo would have made more sense for a Blade Runner score (I say this based mostly on Chappie).Ian - no one is trying to compare Balfe to Zimmer !Firstly there is a 20 year age gap!!!Zimmer will always be the best in my eyes but doesnít harm saying someone else can be good <br><br>Still confused why this conversation is still troubling some.I remember saying last year that I thought Lego Batman was one of the best animation scores that year and it caused some to have heart attacks.there are a hand full of people that donít think he is either good or should be working .... we get !!!! <br><br><br><br>Edmund - given the rationality you've displayed in your comments, I'm disappointed Goldsmith isn't in your top three. ;)<br><br>In all seriousness, I'd put money on Powell fucking nailing the integration of Williams's theme. While Giacchino did a solid job on Jurassic World and Rogue One (I tend to think my assessment of the latter is a bit more positive than most), frankly I just think Powell is a far better composer - a genuine A-level guy, whereas Giacchino is moreso very competent without that spark of pure talent seen in Williams, Goldsmith, Elfman, Zimmer etcI think it's worth noting that Zimmer's popularity at this point is largely under his direct control - meaning that if he were to decide to stop touring, go back to writing full-time, and return to his 'epic' thematic style, I think we'd see a surge in his popularity of the sort we saw from Batman Begins through til Interstellar. However, I just don't think he's interested, which is totally his right.<br><br>I certainly agree that the RCP proteges at this point are, frankly, shit compared to how they used to be. I mean, even a guy like Steve Mazzaro (who I genuinely like and who wrote some of the coolest cues in Chappie, and basically co-wrote BvS - a score I actually like) just utterly pales in comparison to the Powell era.<br><br>Actually, I have to take that back a bit; Wallfisch is a very, very talented guy, honestly so much better than someone like Junkie that I weirdly tend to forget he's under the RCP roof now.
@HunterTech<br><br>"I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world."<br><br>Exactly. Hans, for all the criticism he gets (much of it for good reason), has written some of the best film music of all time (seriously, having listened to huge amounts of Williams and Goldsmith, I still find Science & Religion my favorite cue ever). On the other hand, Lorne has written innumerable adequate-to-good scores, but none that I can recall are iconic. I'd say the closest he's come is in the form of his contributions to some of Zimmer's work (personally, I think his Kick It theme is the most interesting of those in Inception), but even then he hasn't done anything as memorable as Djawadi's theme from Batman Begins.Michael - reread the second half of my previous comment. And no, I don't think Genius or Churchill are no good; I wasn't impressed by the second, to be honest, but Genius is really cool - like an updated version of Frost/Nixon, one of my very favorite Zimmer/RCP scores.<br><br>Edmund - much appreciated.<br><br>Overall, I too am baffled by many of these comments; clearly there is a middle ground between "Lorne is shit." and "Lorne is absolutely amazing.", but this seems to be missed.<br><br>And by the way, I'm actually super happy for Lorne's success - I think he deserves it given the quality and quantity of his work, and he seems like a super nice guy to boot (how many composers regularly respond to people on Facebook?). However, this doesn't mean I can't simultaneously point out the fact that much of his work is very, very similar to work he's done previously. Indeed, I think this is more of an issue for Lorne than Hans, perhaps because he takes on sooooooo many projects.I agree. His Justice League theme is just a deconstruct of his Batman theme. Clever, yeah sure - he's done similar things with the Men In Black sequels and I'm sure there's others I can't think of right now - but I personally dont consider Elfman's involvement in this new DCEU to be very welcome. Zimmer paints a different canvas than Elfman, and I love both their works.It was a missed opportunity.<br>Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>
Seven with ZimmerYeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitHonestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.
Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.Itís definitely one of Bayís best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Canít cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.

Huh?

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 7 || 2015-01-21 20:33:50
Amazon has it now listed for mid-march, so looks like it's coming afterall ! :)


Hybrid Soldier2015-01-28 21:16:50
Finally details ! :)


Zimson2015-01-28 22:01:57
Yeah! The end title sequence is so awesome! :) Some kind of spanish-russian mashup. Not sure how he came up with this. :D


Zismon2015-01-28 22:36:57
Oh ok, it's from the scene where the kids play the guitars. Now I see why. :)


KT Koskela2015-01-29 00:24:28
YAY, details and the fact this is finally going to be released!


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-29 10:42:01
Whoa! Only six tracks for This is the End? I can only guess LLL got up to their usual tricks and combined a ton...Man, I love that label, but that is a really annoying habit of theirs.


Scorefan2015-01-29 23:04:46
This is the end Promotional score (a.k.a. known as complete score) has 29 minutes, and LLL has 13 minutes


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-30 10:20:12
Aw, that sucks. It certainly looks like there was room to include the complete score and keep it on one disc. Wonder why they didn't. :/

KT Koskela reply Replies: 0 || 2015-01-29 01:13:22
Y'know, with the score album being on iTunes right now, and yes, I checked, I decided to listen to the previews of the songs, and I noticed some major differences between the film versions heard in This is the End and the tracks I heard in the album, particularly Celebrity Sinkhole and Final Rapture on the album and where "Hills on Fire/The Sinkhole" and "The Rapture of Seth and Jay" are in the film, and even "Feeling Horny?" wasn't in the film. Guess it was either this or "The Devil Rapes Jonah."

"The Interview"'s score segments, though, sound just as epicly awesome and awesomely epic as they did in the film (though I miss that awesome guitar riff that showed up where "The Wrath of Kim" was in the film), and there's even some cool new pieces, like Panic at the Palace, which I can say unless I'm wrong wasn't in the film itself (it was probably going to be during the scene where the guy who ate the poison died and his comrade got his head holified*). Hoping to hear some samples from the album... and Kingsman, if the latter's possible this soon.

So Amazon says "temporary out of stock" and La-La-Land has no words about it. It's safe to assume that this album is gonna delay and even cancelled.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 1 || 2014-12-24 02:01:38
Heard today that The Interview WILL be released after all.

Makes me wonder if this double score soundtrack will still be released.


Russel2014-12-24 19:20:45
I really hope La La Land didn't get rid of the art, etc, thinking the film was actually cancelled. I really hope they still release this. I was so looking forward to this.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 12 || 2014-12-18 00:03:50
I wonder if with all the mess around the movie LLL will end up cancelling this...


The day America died... lol


Leo2014-12-18 00:58:41
The mentioning of the terrorist attack of September 11th was enough to make Sony and the major theaters shit their pants..


Macejko2014-12-18 13:04:20
Well, no movie means no soundtrack album as well. It's a way to promote a movie and Sony is done with that at this point.


Edmund Meinerts2014-12-18 13:11:17
Normally I'd agree with that line of thinking, Macejko - sad as it is - but this is La-La-Land we're talking about...a specialty score label that's actually interested in presenting the music for its own sake, rather than as a promotional tool.


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-18 13:36:35
Plus there's This Is The End involved... Film or not I think this CD is coming out...


Macejko2014-12-18 15:14:00
Just for the record, it's not how I see the soundtrack business either (in case you couldn't tell already ;). Sadly, I think that the movie studios do. And we will hear Henry's work only through some bootleg.


isildur2014-12-18 15:28:42
Why is Henry listed as composer Twice in the page?


Lambegue2014-12-18 15:30:29
I imagine most of the work for the album was already done - maybe it is even already pressed. In this case, would it change a lot, in terms of costs, to release it ? Maybe Sony has more to win than to loose by releasing it (even if I suppose that the profits on a soundtrack-album release is ridiculously low compared to the loss caused by not releasing the movie)


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-18 17:02:32
Because Henry is a mutant, isildur ! That's his evil twin !!! :)


No it's just the page is attached to 2 projects : The Interview and This Is The End... And the site can't really handle that lol...


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-18 19:34:10
Bingo LLL cancelled it... Crazy...


Anonymous2014-12-18 20:54:40
Hybrid, you seem surprised. Did you really see LLL releasing it? Remember when Season of the Witch and G.I. Joe were moved, and their soundtracks were not released until each film came out? I'll bet that's what will happen with The Interview, if and when Sony (or possibly another studio) decides to release it


Hybrid Soldier2014-12-18 21:01:46
Actually for Season of the Witch the label made a mistake and released the OST by mistake ! And I bought it back then ! haha


isildur2014-12-18 22:58:00
Hybrid, with all the Animated scores he has done/doing I wouldn't be surprised. Anything and everything is possible there. lol

I really hope not, the score is probably really interesting, and I really want This is the End as well.
