For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessions
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)

@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.

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.

@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 :/
