Bayhem - why are you so worked up about him working or not working on the film ?the fact he did seems to annoy youLorne Balfe didnt work at this score!!!!<br>========================<br><br><br>Correct.Oh if you liked this one, you should see the one way below with Bayhem, Meta and Macejko going at it like crazy<br><br>Pretty sure saying this will make another situation like that.I like how this debate about Lorne Balfe started from me politely asking for artist credits. This is a cool place.Lorne Balfe didnt work at this score!!!!
Exactly Solomon !<br>THe use of the krypton theme in the spaceship scene made this moment more intense and it felt... natural... as if the rest of the music doesnt blend in the atmosphere we were used to with the previous movies.@scarecrow9: Wikipedia says that filming originally wrapped in October 2016, and that Zack was taken off the project in May 2017. That's at least 6 months of post-production, so hopefully yes.<br>@Leonard Dante: You don't think it's disrespect to Snyder that the film bears his name but Whedon cut it up and redid his story with terrible reshoots and replaced his nominated composer?<br><br>Lastly, I will say that I watched the film earlier today and thought it was absolutely terrible. The best part was the few seconds where Zimmer's "Krypton" theme was playing in the scoutship!Hybrid, do you think that the Snyder´s Cut could really exist somewhere? Let alone with Tom´s score, do you think that he even began scoring the film? I would love to see that version. Thank you for your answerBalfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers<br>=================================<br><br><br>Even composers who do one or two movies a year receive help. So it's very, very hard for me to believe that Balfe - with the amount of movies he works on now - is out there by himself, scoring it all by himself. It's simply not possible. And this is the MV/RC world after all. Composers help each other all the time. And many of these collaborations don't even make it to this site. It's very hard to keep track of everything.imo whedon and elfman screwed up the movie, i'd say Zacks original cut would be better, then again thats just me tho
Perhaps. But it would be a disrespect to Whedon and Elfman. Okay. If that means more money on the table, they will.HOPE NEVER DIES.<br><br>Sources confirm this days on social media that Zack Snyder Original Cut of Justice League not only exists, but have VFX's work and Junkie XL's score on it.<br><br>That could be really EPIC.<br><br>The Fight for this can happens is bigger every minute passes, dont lose the faith, not now.Cannot freaking wait!"Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers"<br><br>As if. Just look through this site and you'll see additional guys credited for lots of his scores. Max Aruj, Steffen Thum, Thomas Farnon, Andrew Kawczynski on some projects...he's a very busy guy but I promise you he doesn't do every single second of his 15 scores a year on his own.Bayhem - Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers though.which films has this small army of ghostwriters ???!!!!!!
You say Balfe worked on the last Transformers(2017). Okay. He may have been called by the Paramount. However, his involvement with the franchise in 2005 and in the following years happened because of the RCP and Zimmer's direct involvement in the project. There in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2014 he was a guest of RCP/MV and no received no call for help of the Paramount. There is no other way.he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter .<br>.....................................<br><br><br>I've asked him a lot of stuff. We're Facebook friends. And yes, I know he worked on the first one. I clearly said it a couple of times in my replies here. He worked on the first one and the second one as well. But if you try to imply that Balfe deserves the credit for these scores, you are way, way off the mark. And it's very disrespectful to Jablonsky. Very.<br><br>Now, clearly you like Balfe a lot. Fine. But please don't undermine a far more experienced and successful composer like Jablonsky, just because Balfe is the "hot MV/RC composer" at the moment. We, the Jablonsky fans, certainly didn't act that way in 2007 when Jablonsky's name was everywhere and people were going crazy for the Transformers score. No one denies that Balfe worked hard on the Transformers films. But he's not the "main guy". Just like a lot of MV/RC composers have worked on HIS scores and they're not the main composers. You think Balfe scores all of his movies alone? Nope. Like any other successful and busy composer out there, he's supported by a small army of ghostwriters.Studio = Paramount and he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter . I did !!!!!!Balfe never worked for Jablonsky =========================================<br><br>By "worked for Jablonsky" I meant he worked ON Jablonsky scores. And as James said, it's all MV/RC anyway. They all know each other and help each other. The first Transformers movie started post-production at the end of 2006. Back then no one knew who Balfe was (aside from the biggest MV/RC fans). His big break arguably came in 2009-2010. Years after the first Transformers movie. So no matter how we spin it, he still came after Jablonsky. Jablonsky is his senior and obviously has much more experience. And we have to respect that. <br><br>That was my point.Should have gotten one for Interstellar, not this.

The expansion we've all been waiting desperately for!


Ds2016-04-10 15:41:29
Lol as if the initial CD wasn't boring enough.

Holkenborg should have pushed for a release of his Point Break score instead, which was more of the same but at least fun to listen at!

The CD is coming out in March 4th 2016?

Laurens reply Replies: 2 || 2016-02-12 14:02:44
Okay it's been a few days and the score should be out in America too now, right? I saw the movie yesterday and I have to say that it is a very, very good movie. But... I have the tendency to say that if I had not listened to the score before I saw the movie, I would not have noticed the music that much. I mean, the non-score songs play very noticeable, but Junkies (action) cues are very fast paced due to the way the movie is edited. And while this fast-pacing works very well for the storytelling (lots of flashbacks and "wait, let's pause this for a minute"-moments), the music kind of suffers from this. I noticed this in the soundtrack, too... It just feels like the score can't get going. Every time the drums and synths kick in, it's over very quickly. That's such a shame because when you hear Junkies awesome cues, you don't want them to stop. And then, obviously, there is the underscore, which is, well, underscore... It sounds fine in the movie but you probably won't remember any of it.
It would've been nice if there was a Deadpool-suite or something, because Junkie created some very nice themes for the character, but it feels like they can't express fully due to the movies tempo.


Ds2016-02-12 23:50:03
I had pretty much the same impression. It's not bad but it's not a satisfying listening experience.


meta2016-02-13 02:46:29
"Deadpoople"

Since the adverts thats all I keep hearing when I hear Deadpool....

Pity the score meanders...

This is a one star score... So disappointing :(


Laurens2016-02-07 23:44:04
Yeah well I just got through my first listen and I am kind of disappointed too... I feel like Maximum Effort and Twelve Bullets are the main two stand-out action tracks, but they're on the very short side and did not blow me away like Blood Bag, Brothers in Arms, Chapter Doof, The Bog, go on and on... Maybe Man in a Red Suit can be up there too, but honestly I did not hear a lot of memorable tracks first time round... Might change obviously, just my initial reaction. However, I would have preferred to have a lot more music from Junkie and less Tarantino-like 'soundtrack'. I mean, I don't know how the existing songs play out in the film as I haven't seen it yet, but I could have done without some of those songs. And I don't know if it's my headophones (I hope not :) ) but it sounds like the album is mastered too loud so sometimes there is clearly some distortion/clipping going on. Could be intentional but it kind of starts to bother me. I'm going to try some other sound systems to verify this.


mpolonest1232016-02-08 01:49:42
Have to agree with you here. The action music, for the most part, is pretty fun when Junkie lets loose with the electronics (Maximum Effort, Twelve Bullets, Watership Down). I'll even say there are some genuinely pretty moments scattered throughout (Liam Neeson Nightmares, Face I would Sit On).

Unfortunately the biggest downfall of this soundtrack is a lot of the underscore. Junkie's strength definitely lies in his themes, but utilizing them is definitely not his strong suit. I would say half of the music functions well, while the rest kinda falls flat. And the biggest problem; the drums. The 80's style synth works amazing but is overshadowed by the Mad Max drums and strings.

Imo, JXL needs to leave his comfort zone and write for dramatic films. His string writing is some of the best out there, and his action music works when he doesn't fall into the same routine drums and pounding.

Oh wow it's here already (iTunes Netherlands at least...)? I thought this would come out next week... Don't know what made me think that...

While I despise Deadpool and the upcoming movie, the track that was released today is bonkers. I may have to get this soundtrack anyway.


Robert2016-02-02 00:09:30
Just listened to Twelve Bullets and it is indeed absolutely insane. I'm getting this soundtrack for sure.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 12 || 2016-01-24 02:16:55
I wonder what sound Junkie is going to come up with for this. I'm hoping for something completely off the wall and unconventional.


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-24 10:52:50
Me too, although I'm not sure Junkie has that in him sadly...Mad Max called for that too, and what we got in the end was a pretty standard combination of MoS percussion, strings, electronica and electric guitar.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-24 11:10:45
The funny thing is, it'll be out before Bat V Sup but was written after... :D


Zimson2016-01-24 11:58:34
Junkie has some serious talent for action scoring. Brothers in arms was easily last year's most intense track. He is besides Hans the only one who can pull sth like that off so far.


mpolonest1232016-01-24 15:14:56
It seems like it's the producers/directors who tend to keep asking for the same type of action drum music that he turns out.

Junkie has proven that he can write stirring string music, unfortunately his use of electronics always tends to fall short. Here's hoping that this and BvS can change that around.


Frank2016-01-25 02:16:17
He mentioned Deadpool in Fans of Film Music gathering and said he pushed very "left" for this one. So I guess this will be a very different score

This is pretty cool imo, I like the little "Beat It" motif.


mpolonest1232016-01-26 02:59:38
For some reason it reminds me of Chappie lol


ggctuk2016-01-27 19:30:50
Having never seen Chappie or heard the soundtrack, I would say it would easily fit in "The Matrix: Path of Neo". Kind of reminds me of "The Key". I liked those pieces so it's nice to hear something that reminds me of it.

On that topic, was Junkie XL with RCP when he wrote for Path of Neo?


...2016-01-28 00:59:09
Damn... I don't like this. I wish Tom would step away from the pop music/edm genre. His work for Black Mass, Mad Max and even divergent (which has pop elements) was amazing. I shouldn't judge the score by this sample but this doesn't do it for me... Let's hope he delivers a great batman theme:)


Ds2016-01-28 08:25:51
Since most of his career has been precisely in the electronic genre, I guess it's normal some directors hire him because they want an electronic score :-p


Edmund Meinerts2016-01-29 00:22:15
I can't say I really loved it or that it's the sort of thing I'll listen to a lot, but I will say that this sort of music feels like a much more natural fit for Junkie than that Man of Steel/Mad Max modern action music stale percussion drumming hell that we've heard from him so many times already. This allows his more colorful electronica side to come to the forefront and the textures are much more interesting than just BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA-BA-BA-BA BAM BAM BAM BAM.
