Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.
Have to agree because if you havenít an interest in Lorneís work then just donít goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply donít click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You donít have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>
> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! Iím scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????
How pathietic that it bothers some ,that some of us are excited about another composers music. Get a life people. Balfe has become a great composer this year so give him a break . If you donít like it , you can find another forumI agree, I'm shocked no one is talking about how great Ramin Djawadi's score is for The Mountain Between Us. Much better than this new Lorne Balfe score, I'm mean really, this Geostorm score is just a constant reminder to other scores from RCP from the past. Nothing original here. Only the track May Day is memorable.I like it too but I don't understand why this thread is full of slobbering fanboys while nobody is talking about, say, Kingsman 2 which is just as good. I don't want to stop anyone talking about his music but did we really need every day this year for someone to go "oh my god I can't wait for Lorne to release another unreleased cue from Ghost in the Shell"? It doesn't contribute anything meaningful and makes this site look even more like a YouTube comments section than it already does.Your right Edmund ..... how dare we take about any other composer apart from Zimmer or John Powell!  Thankfully your point of view is in the minority. There is obviously a reason why he is one of the busiest composers . Geostorm isnít original BUT itís great music and I like it at leastI couldn't agree with you more JBSO99. I don't know what's up this year because a ton of Balfe fanboys seem to have crawled out of the woodwork. He's having a very solid year but people are acting like every score he puts out is a masterpiece or something, which...nah.

@Hybrid: do you know who did what?


Anonymous2015-02-14 22:33:37
What's it matter? Why are people so obsessed with wanting cue by cue breakdowns for every piece of music? It states the artists right there on the front cover. Stick those in your iTunes tags and enjoy the music. Simples.


Felix2015-02-14 22:49:33
Yes @Anonymous, but I would only like to know whitch track is by Geoff Zanelli or Mark Ronson?


Anonymous2015-02-15 01:28:01
My apologies to you, fair enough. I thought you were one of those people who wanted every single composer and additional composer and their granny credited on each and every track! Be well.


Lambegue2015-02-15 03:26:14
Can't people be curious about the process of writing ?


Meta2015-02-15 14:49:53
Does it really matter?

this score is serviceable to the movie, and thats about it...

This score is like Austin Powers with a Moustache...Scored by Hans Zimmer. Movie was dumb fare, and I'm talking Hudson Hawk.

Musicwise, I didn't hate it, but I wont remember any of it. I will remember Depp's Pringles Moustache, though.


Zimson2015-02-16 09:16:52
First I want the "Who did what" for Kung Fu Panda 2. But that ain't gonna happen soon, y'all. :)


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-16 11:47:00
I already did that...


Zimson2015-02-16 13:51:04
Really!? Hans is credited on every track, even on the expanded score.


Zimson2015-02-16 13:53:47
Anyways, thanks for gathering the Info regarding additional music.

This will be released in february ! :)

Will be released in 20 January at lalala site.


Edmund Meinerts2015-01-12 09:59:44
Had no idea Zanelli was doing this. The trailers for it look beyond awful.


NM2015-01-17 12:50:56
"The trailers for it look beyond awful."

They really do. Then again, I think most trailers are awful, even for films that turn out to be good.


Zimson2015-02-06 22:51:48
It has a 28 out of 100 at metacritic so the movie is probably atrocious. Anyways if Zanelli gets to do big movies like this now Pirates 5 doesn't seem out of reach for him. Hope he gets the job, he really deserves it considering his effort on the previous movies.


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-06 22:52:46
The film really wasn't my cup of tea... :/ :/


Zimson2015-02-06 23:04:53
It's Johnny Depp at his career low, I don't think Pirates 5 will come close to its previous success. 1 billion is far out of reach by now.
It seems, though, Depp is taking every role he's offered. Someone has bear the costs for his island, lol. Even Tim Burton is shooting without him now.

Btw, is Hans done with Disney because of Pirates 4 or is he still considering doing it a fifth time?


Hybrid Soldier2015-02-06 23:19:26
Hans is done with POTC... Because of POTC 4... Doesn't mean he has a problem with Disney (he doesn't lol), but POTC is a finished story... :)


Zimson2015-02-07 00:04:17
I would have a problem if I was him. Disney has become a sort of Monsanto of the movie industry. All they're doing is exploiting the same concepts over and over again. There's no room for the once visionary magic they've accomplished. Frozen is basically a parody of themselves, lol.


Anonymous2015-02-07 10:15:52
@Zimson

Actually, what you described is pretty much what every major studio/comapny is doing these days - "McDonaldization" all around.


Anonymous2015-02-08 02:46:20
Unfortunately, the score was about as good as the movie :/
