Sadly, he doesn't seem to say anything new besides the background information on the Zimmer and Harry Gregson scores he's worked on. Plus the Skyscraper information still doesn't excuse the generic committee product that score turned out to be.Does anyone know what songs Max Aruj and Steffen Thum have worked on?Though there are differences, I think HZ & NGS styles mix together rather well.<br><br>Tracks like "Fort Walton", "Goodspeed Tracks Jade" or "Jade" are exceptions for sure. Apart from these, most tracks blend very well, imo.<br>It's very different from Armageddon for exemple, when team Trevor and team Harry had very different styles (big anthems & guitars VS darker material and more subtle theme developments) and also different sound equipments (I can tell immediately who did what thanks to the sound banks they used). The Rock doesn't suffer from those extreme differences imo.<br><br>We fans here listened to those scores for over 20 years and we've learnt how to spot each composer (thanks to this website and all the infos on each track we got over the years). I'm not sure I could have noticed all those details back in 1996, or even 10 years ago.<br><br>Nonetheless, The Rock is one of the greatest action scores ever. While more coherent scores like Crimson Tide or The Fan grew on me over the years, The Rock keeps a very special place in my heart.yes i hope 2 cd!!!!Hi, <br>Ever paid tribute to Gorecki?<br>I think you should<br><br>Cheers<br><br>Mjt Sprengers
The only way I won't be able to the listen to it before the episode is if it will be released in Germany in the night to tuesday. But I don't know how I would find that.Does someone know something about the soundtrack already? Like how many songs there will be or maybe even the full track list? Or will it be a big surprise?I will, Backbiter, because I live in Germany and in my country the final episode will be released on monday. I will watch it with my friends and therefore we will watch it around 8pm in my time. If the soundtrack will be released in the night from sunday to monday, I will be able to listen to the soundtrack before I watch the final episode.Yasss<br><br>Please be 2 discsThis is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.<br><br>Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?
Very interesting interview. Thanks man!Judging by the YouTube views, not a lot of people have listened to this 1-hour chat with Steve. So I'm posting it here for you folks to enjoy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bR0TPYmidNYI have nothing against any of the composers who worked on The Rock, but to my ears, the Nick Glennie-Smith stuff sounds obviously different from the Hans Zimmer stuff, and they both sound very different from the Harry Gregson-Williams stuff. And the transitions are a tad jarring at times. I've never seen anyone else post this opinion before, though, so I may be the only one!<br>=====================<br><br><br>That's actually very interesting. Never thought of it that way. And you're right. For those who are well aware of the overall MV/RC sound, there is indeed a difference between the Zimmer style and the Glennie-Smith style. However, I think that the two styles blend pretty well in The Rock. The movie itself allows for that. So I would argue that, while watching the actual movie, the two styles work very well together and they complement each other. <br><br>But listening to the score alone, yes, I can definitely see where you're coming from. The differences are obvious. Having said that, I still consider it to be a masterpiece of action scoring. And not only action. The emotional bits are great too. JADE is an extremely beautiful and tender track :))<br><br>P.S. The Peacemaker is on my personal TOP 5 of the greatest action scores of all time. I can't believe the score is not as popular as The Rock. Same for Eraser, by the way. Watch the movie again on a good sound system and you'll be blown away by the awesome Silvestri score. I really wish those two scores were more popular with the public......The 90s had some of the greatest action movie scores ever<br>================================<br><br>Without a doubt. I grew up in the 90s and I was there for all of it. Truly one of the best decades for film music (and for cinema in general). I mean, it's the decade that changed action scores forever. Exactly because of scores like The Rock, Twister, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker. Granted, Harold Faltermeyer kinda started it all in the mid-80s with his work on Top Gun, Tango and Cash and Beverly Hills Cop 2, but it was Hans and his team who really got the ball rolling. By the way, I'm super happy that Hans and Faltermeyer are teaming up for Top Gun 2. At least according to IMDb....<br><br><br>==================<br>The opening theme is probably Zimmer's best in the genre<br>==================<br><br>Agreed. It's the ultimate Zimmer power anthem. I know the younger generation knows Hans mainly from his work on comicbook movies like Batman and Spider Man, but for me, 90's Zimmer will always be the best Zimmer. And my favorite Zimmer :))I'm so excited hear that.
No you won't, the score will be released after the final episode.Yesssssssssss yessss yesCan't wait for this soundtrack.<br>Just a few days left.Oh. My. Gods. (The old ones and the new.) That's so good news. And I can't wait for sunday.<br><br>The best is, that I can here the soundtrack before I watch the final episode. And I like to hear to a score without knowing wich music belongs to what kind of scene.Yesss. Can't wait!

Any news on this Hybrid? While the movie marketing is in full swing, news on the score front is pretty much non existent. Here's hoping Balfe's brought his A-game to this (like Ironclad) because the movie looks other worldly in terms of propulsive action set pieces.

Andreas2018-04-19 12:46:39
Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent news


...2018-04-19 12:51:20
Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-19 12:59:38
I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.

I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.


George2018-04-19 13:46:44
I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.


HunterTech2018-04-19 17:33:07
I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.

And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.


Ds2018-04-20 10:23:23
I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...
That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.


...2018-04-20 11:21:34
I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-20 12:41:49
Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.


Ds2018-04-20 14:10:45
For me, a theme is a distinguishable motif or piece of music that is related to a specific location, event or most commonly character, and that the viewer notices as such. If your score contains 20 themes that are never repeated in a similar form and are so uncharacteristic that they all sound the same, I'm just calling that orchestra noise. And I don't see any appeal in that kind of scoring...


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-20 15:06:29
I mean sure, but I can't think of many Giacchino scores that actually match that description. The Star Trek reboot scores for example, where he has a (pretty good) main theme that he plays the same way roughly sixteen thousand times over and over again. :p


JBSO992018-04-20 21:10:44
I don't think you have listened to the Star Trek scores properly. Giacchino has a main theme that he uses a lot, but also a theme for Spock, themes for the bad guys of each movie and even a theme for the city of Yorktown in the third movie.

Another great example of this is LOST, where almost all the characters had a theme that played through all the series and there were also themes for locations or even situations.

So I don't think Giacchino is out of the use of themes.


Ds2018-04-21 01:12:05
Well maybe you guys are right, to be honest i never cared much about this composer. All i know is that i almost never noticed any kind of theme when watching movies scored by him, while usually I'm the kind of audience who pays attention to the music. It can be that his way of writing or orchestrating or mixing doesnt match with my own taste, that's a possibility. Anyway I still maintain that none of his scores or themes has become a "classic", despite the ridiculous amount of major blockbusters he had the chance to score so far...


JBSO992018-04-21 11:36:36
Well, I guess that is a matter of tastes and opinion, because for me scores like The Incredibles or Up, for saying some examples, are classics inside the animation field.

But is fine. We have our own preferences and that's okay.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-22 17:34:19
Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :p

Wow, they're even going over to Filmtracks now and mining my comments from there. That's really pathetic.

Besides, that comment was purely in reference to the fact that whenever a composer gets replaced these days, it's almost always by Balfe. No quality judgment whatsoever.

Think there’s any outside chance Hans is doing this one? Hybrid mentioned on the Film Score Monthly forum that he knows it’s not Brian Tyler, and he’s been mum on anything on this site. Hans also mentioned in the latest video on the news page here that he was working on something he couldn’t discuss yet, if I remember correctly... but that could technically be anything..

With X Men being pushed back and lion king not coming out til next year, Hans seemingly has nothing scheduled for 2018... and Kraemer was never even asked back, he was notified that he would not be asked to return to the franchise, which could possibly indicate that the studio got someone bigger that they couldn’t say no to. I’m not claiming to know anything at all... in fact I’m probably completely wrong haha.. but it sure would be awesome to get another Hans score for this franchise.


Bondo2018-04-06 05:46:55
Yeah, I think there's a good chance HZ will score this one. In fact, I think it'd be cool if he reunited with that female singer he worked with on last year's Gladiator! Either way, John Woo is attached to direct, so it should be pretty badass.


;)


Randy Watson2018-04-08 11:13:21
Well, John Powell scored Woo's last film and his star his rising so maybe he'll get the job.

I just hope they won't do something foolish and let some flavor of the month, like Limb Bizkit perhaps, ruin the theme.


Bondo2018-04-08 21:15:38
Randy, I honestly don't see them going in that direction. I'm not even sure a rock vibe would work for this film! Woo will probably want to stick with something similar to Elfman's work on the last film, something more traditional.


...2018-04-08 21:37:29
Maguire who directed the 5th movie is directing MI6, not woo


Bondo2018-04-08 21:53:12
Not to be confused with Christopher McQuarrie, who definitely did not direct MI5.


...2018-04-08 23:10:57
Sorry, I Misspelled Christopher McQuarrie. He did definitively direct MI5 and he's doing MI6.


Olive2018-04-09 01:52:42
It is likely that they have no composer and only work with tracks already recorded such as in the Tarantino films.

There must be a composer and this guy is someone "minor" in the business.If it was Zimmer or Kraemer, they would have already released the information.


George2018-04-09 01:59:31
I doubt it, Olive. La La Land posted on a Film Score Monthly forum that “they know something we don’t know...” and I’m assuming that it’s a major hire... and for whatever reason they’re keeping it a secret. I’m not gonna lie I have begun to think it really might be Hans.


mpolonest123 2018-04-09 02:33:08
I would be fascinated with Zimmer returning ONLY if he sticks to the more traditional, orchestral approach that Kraemer did for the last one. Or any composer for that matter. Personally I would like to hear something along the lines of Kingsman, bold and adventerous.

It’s funny that, outside of portions of Megamind, we’ve never really had Zimmer in that classic “James Bond” esque style of scoring mode, unless there is something I’m forgetting.
