Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?
me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.CD RELEASE?
Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.
There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>

Wow...really what I wasn't expecting...I'll pass.

I love them, thanks!


KT Koskela2015-07-22 11:52:17
While I wish Jackman and Columbus'd gone the Gremlins route and made this an 80s-style orchestra/synth hybrid funfest, I'm happy with what I'm hearing.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 9 || 2015-07-16 02:22:12
(sighs) When do you think we'll be getting some samples of this score?


Russel2015-07-17 04:57:49
We got some today, courtesy of Varese Sarabane's YouTube channel!


KT Koskela2015-07-17 15:29:31
Y'sure? Could you try to put up someway to the link?


KT Koskela2015-07-17 15:58:03
Never mind, I found the link. Thanks!


Russel2015-07-17 17:42:51
Links not allowed on here, I think. Glad you found it!


Hybrid Soldier2015-07-17 18:45:58
Illegal links are...


For the rest it's fine if it's relevant... :)


meta2015-07-17 22:48:45
wasnt what i was hoping to hear...sounds more swashbuckly than video gamey....


Anonymous2015-07-17 23:04:02
Excuse me but where is the link?


Boldizar 2015-07-18 06:38:20
My thoughts exactly. For a movie about video games this score sample sure sounds like a generic 90s adventure film.


meta2015-07-19 04:58:01
and the track lengths are even shorter...oy vey

Every time I see a trailer for this movie I get annoyed, because the premise is so stupidly awesome and parts of it look really cool...but I just can't STAND Adam Sandler or pretty much anything he's associated with. Peter Dinklage must owe someone money or somethign.

Henry Jackman's a good choice for this, though, looking forward to hearing more Wreck-it Ralph 8-bit-orchestral-action fusion stuff.


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-28 21:44:16
Totally agree Ed, 100%...

I will see this film... But I just CAN'T with Adam Sandler... I just hope he's buried under the rest in this film... lol


Kusi2015-06-28 22:18:28
I agree with you about Sandler :-S but I'll have to watch this film too. One argument: The score and the other is the topic. I've grown up with this games and I'm still loving Nintendo games :)


Brent2015-06-29 07:10:45
I feel like Jackman's career has led up to this. Wreck-It Ralph + Captain America + This is the End = Pixels. Lol.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 3 || 2015-06-28 00:57:48
Yay, details!

Now to wait a long while for a preview track to listen to before the score comes out.


Anonymous2015-06-28 06:09:09
This film had some decent poster artworks. Why the heck did it come down to this artwork for the album?


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-28 10:01:05
Because a cover with people on it means a lot of paperwork... I guess they wanted to avoid that... lol


KT Koskela2015-06-28 17:12:17
And besides, it's the music contained inside the soundtrack that matters, not the cover for the soundtrack.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 0 || 2015-06-17 13:47:08
Awesome. I've been waiting to see if this would be getting a score album.

And from what I've heard of the score, it certainly sounds like a good one to listen to.
