As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldnít help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ĎTerence Malick-yí, ďThin Red LineĒ feel throughout.<br><br>Iím definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I canít comment on what he might have written, but Balfeís broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be fun
I love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cue
Lorne says it will be released and insists itís not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how itís gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(
Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?Thatís literally the best part of the score though. But itís typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.

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


Russel2015-07-22 08:11:58
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

It's a private link for now, but on type in YouTube's address and add watch?v=CmS3YAzyWj4 after the slash.

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.
