The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe “leaked” his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

@Hybrid I just saw that they are making a new short film in the BMW series. You happen to know if Jablonsky is returning since he did Hostage. Or if (fingers crossed) Mazzaro or Kawczynski may do it since Neil Blomkamp is directing, that'd be pretty sweet.

I see Lorne Balfe is working with Blomkamp .

Steve's new theme is fantastic. I don't know what people are talking about Tyler's theme for the first movie. Isn't it just another slight variation of his Iron Man or Thor 2 themes?


Vivien2016-06-07 12:36:55
Agreed. TMNT 1 = Iron man 3 = Thor 2


MrZimmerFan2016-06-07 12:53:52
But still one of his best works


Listen carefully2016-07-15 13:53:36
Please.. All those themes are different. People feel similarity because Tyler uses horns a lot. Think of theme of superman(old version) and that of star wars. Even their codes and melodys are different, many people think that they are "slight variation".. When you finish studying codes, you will notice those musics are all different.......
I wonder why don't you say TMNT2 theme is longer part of transformers theme..
Think before you type.


Edmund Meinerts2016-07-15 21:16:43
Nah, it's way more than "he uses horns a lot". The harmonies Tyler uses are far more simplistic and rooted in pop music (especially the iv-VI-I-V from Thor 2, dear God is that ever an overused progression) than the far more complex late-romantic idiom that Williams uses, so when Tyler uses similar ones from score to score it really stands out. The orchestrations in Williams' big themes from the late-70s-early-80s might be similar but the progressions (and rhythmic construction) in Star Wars, Superman and Indiana Jones are totally different. Not to mention the fact that Tyler's melodic lines are way shorter than Williams'.

That Jablonsky's TMNT2 theme sounds a bit like Transformers is, however, also true. But I'm willing to give it a pass because I like hearing that melodic side of Jablonsky's writing make a return.


Yoon(Listen carefully)2016-07-16 08:09:18
Edmund Meinerts, I wasn't talking about the styles of Tyler's music or Williams'. I tried to point out that people make rush response to musics. Normal people could say composer's musics are same when they contact musics which contains similar use of instruments. Even if those themes are different. Such as Williams' musics. I was surprised that many people who listened to theme of star wars(opening part) and that of superman barely distinguished the difference because the arrangement of orchestra. That is the reason why I mentioned William's theme. And I wanted to say that this phenomenon is happening to you.


Yoon2016-07-16 16:27:07

MB, what about "Brothers in Arms" by Steve Jablonsky? score for Transformers 4 "Punch-hold Slide Repeat" from. listen to a score of RC for the first time? besides, it was hans zimmer himself confessed that inspired the composer in rc with one another. when a making travel will next make it similar or better. Jablonsky also writes this year for four movies, the music and happy father what one sees on facebook. is just a lot of time pressure behind it but he always comes with what new and used elements from his earlier scores which is also in order. hans zimmer makes it too! especially if it is a specific piece of very good like a pity when you hear film four times in different. but okay.

Half Shell....What Amazing cover from the original TV Series Intro song.

That's why I'm still thinking....Why this good composer didn't get this leitmotiv and made a really fun and cool soundtrack?

Because this OST is all but not fun or inspired or nothing fine.
Is really boring and "pilot-mode on", so generic and souless.

I remember the last soundtrack by Brian Tyler. Wasn't a master piece but had a very good main theme and was correct music along the movie. Perhaps when I'll be watching the this sequel I'll can apreciate more the music work with the rest of stuff, but for now, every time I listen the last track "Half Shell"....I'm still askingn, Why?

Brian Tyler did awesome theme and job in the first one, that is for sure but I am glad that Jablonsky scored this one a make it his own and we get completely different music and I can´t wait to hear it whole, I hope Jablonsky will do one day some kind of Marvel movie because he is really talented.


Ds2016-05-31 14:17:49
scarecrow9, there's an awful contradiction at the end of your sentence... Talented people deserve so much better than scoring Marvel movies


Everan2016-05-31 15:25:09
I hope myself Steve manages to get Justice League since Zimmer's leaving. Maybe with Junkie to aid in keeping the style and thematic music on the film, and adapt Hans' themes for Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg.


Macejko2016-05-31 16:00:52
Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg had a theme? o.O


Edmund Meinerts2016-05-31 16:30:19
I think he means the themes that Hans (or whoever) would eventually write for those characters. I seem to recall one of the ideas for music in the DC universe was Hans writing all the main themes, and then various RC composers doing the individual scores using those themes. Honestly, I kind of like the sound of that. It would take advantage of the collaborative nature of RC in the best possible way.

To bring things back to Turtles, Tyler's score for the first is actually one of my favorites of his (it's not as generic as his Marvel music and has some unusually complex writing and cool Matrix-like brass moments), but I thought his main theme was pretty weak and sounded like every other heroic theme he's ever written. With Jablonsky I'm the other way around - I'm fairly confident in his ability to deliver strong themes (even his weakest scores usually have that). But he often stumbles when it comes to the actual underscore. I'm still looking forward to hearing this, though - it could be the best Jablonsky score in a long time.

Ds2016-05-23 22:45:25
Actually it only seems to happen with movies produced by Michael Bay. The Last Witch Hunter was ready well on time, if I recall well :-p

When TF3 came out, Steve said in interviews that the CD had been ready for a long time, but just waited too long for Bay's approval, because Bay was busy with something else...
