Does anyone know why "Knight's March" is not in the original album and if there is a extended edition that has this cue?<br><br>Rogue One was last minute change on Giacchino. I would like to hear Alexandre Desplat score to make a correct analysis from both scores. Besides that and with the little time, Giacchino's score is good, in the same style from maestro Williams. <br>Solo score is more different. Maestro Williams wrote the main theme and more cues, but what make the score different is Powell. He adapts Solo theme, and some of themes the original trilogy, but he puts him own stamp. Definitely is a Star Wars Score but with Powell stamp. Something Giacchino, maybe for the time, did not develop.<br>The film, well, i will watch on DVD.graciasWhile I always liked this score, it wasn’t until recently (when I revisited the film and album) that I realized how amazing it really is. There is still nothing that tops “Evacuating London” or the “Aslan” theme in terms of modern fantasy material. Each of the themes are brilliantly interconnected with each other, but stand on their own as well. I do wish there something a bit more distinctive for the White Witch, but that’s a small complaint.<br><br>The only other score that really reminds me of this (in terms of the string writing and piano material) is “Winters Tale” by Rupert. Also a pretty solid fantasy score.I LOVE IT!!
They kept the volume of the music so low in the movie, while rouge ones was jacked up and used as a center piece rather than side music like they did for John. Johnson piece is far better,  it they gave it a back seat <br>But Rogue One or Solo?<br><br>Because i remember more the music in RO after watching the movie than in Solo (well, maybe is because that theme for the character is so unispired and only i remember certain moments of the music)We are just gonna have to agree to disagree. ;-)I just said I haven't watched the movie or listened to the full score yet.Still have to disagree, I love the new “Park Theme” and the way it sort of takes over from the classic theme. Then you have the Indominus theme, Owen’s theme, the villain theme, the family theme, the source music, etc.<br>I’ll take that any day over Lost World and JP3. Is it as good as the original score? Hell no, but not many scores are.'<br><br>The Lost World was a coherent evolution in the franchise, Williams maintains the original theme, but creates a darker and more percussive score (listen the expanded version by La La Land), because the movie isn't like Jurassic Park. And i getting appreciate more the Don Davis score for JPIII, better orchestrated than Jurassic World, both scores are FAR better than Jurassic World (one for a coherent and agressive tone and more memorable, and the other because is better orchestrated)<br><br>'And I do see the similarities between the vulture theme and those other ones listed. It’s definitely not original, but it is effective.'<br><br>I don't see any similaraties with the Avengers theme, effective?, yeah, but not memorable and i'll pick up any day than any theme in Jurassic World
Do you remember any music outside the space chase?<br><br>Because i don't.I only watched the movie once, but the fact that I didn't take away any memorable music from Rogue One is a huge problem for a Star Wars film. I haven't listened to this score yet, but I have more hopes for this than Rogue One.Between this one and Rogue One, I'll take the last one.<br><br>Unfortunately the two scores run away from the typical sound of the franchise and at various times seem just a pastiche copy.<br><br>It's a good score, but it does not feel so natural. Even Han's theme is almost unrecognizable, forgettable and incoherent with the character. It does not have the same identity as the themes of Luke, Leia, Rey, Anakin, Jyn, Yoda or Dameron.woow! love itIt's funny that when they announced that the star wars story films would be scored by different conposers, I was like... COME ONE JOHNY GET ON IT and sure enough a year later... Same with Pan (one of his best scores in my opinion).
Well, for starters, the HAN SOLO theme Williams wrote is kind of...well...meh....<br><br>And I can see where Powell had to incorporate the original Star Wars and some Empire themes....Asteroid Field being one of them.<br><br>I just kinda hoped Powell would adapt Asteroid Field into something more than whatever the hell butchery happened here....Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! When was there a flute in this score?? I just noticed there's a credit for a flute soloist, and I've listened to this score several times and never noticed a flute? Does anyone have any idea which track it might be?It's really sad how more than half of this score is just very messy bombastic sound rather than a more structured melodic/thematic approach, this coming from a hardcore Powell fan. The saddest thing is that this was THE film for him to score, full of action and chase sequences, which John has always excelled at. Here however, rather than his usual voice, it sounds as if he shies away from it and goes back to anything established by Williams every 30 seconds or so. Whenever it sounds like a cue is leading up to something interesting and exploring a new idea, it just shies away from it. This might have been on the directors/producer's side of things... or that's what I'm choosing to believe, at least. Don't get me wrong, every so often there are some sections that really do shine, this often being when Powell isn't just trying to sound Williamsy and/or referencing old SW material. Maybe I just need to give the album a few more listens. Usually happens whenever a new Powell soundtrack album is released. Not sure, though. Just by listening to Ferdinand a few times, for example, you could really feel and understand the story, its characters and their development, as their themes developed as well. This one is just a mess and feels... off.Such an inspiring track. Loved it when it was released and still love it.Only now just watched this show on Netflix and love balfes score . Can’t believe this dark moody music is his !cant wait for Mission Impossible Fallout

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(


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.
