Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is BalfeI hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes.

I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.
I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 things
Sure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.Just listening to this again. It really is a best of both score. What I think is so great, is that you can hear both of the brothers' own voice but they blend so well together!! Really really great score!<br><br>It's a really remarkable score, the swifts in tone between dramatic and jazz is top-notch. It's higher on favorite list from 2019 already, than I thought it would ever be.<br><br>Give me more Gregson-Williams brothers scores!!!!!!I was hoping for JNH, but we'll see what he does. JNH's themes were amazing zo it would be stupod not to use them. But he used the Pirates themes, so I'm feeling actually quite ok about itTrue, but he didn’t really get credit for The Lone Ranger or any of the Pirates films other than #5... those are billed strictly as HZ scores. I would say Christopher Robin likely was a result of the success of his Pirates score, and Timothy Green wasn’t really a Disney tentpole release. Maleficent isn’t a Marvel or Star Wars level tentpole, but it is still a blockbuster film that I think he’ll do an awesome job with.@Mephariel - you’re right. However Interstellar and Inception, musically speaking, are simple scores. They are moving, beautiful, and masterpieces, but still simple. Which is great! <br><br>But if we are wanting Zimmer to return to a type of music, I’d much rather prefer something along the lines of Pirates, The Rock, The Last Samurai, Crimson Tide, etc. Tonally, of course it would be more modern and new, but melodically a return to those forms would be a dream come true.
Geoff has done several other Disney projects besides Pirates 5.  (All Pirates movies since the first, Lone Ranger, Christopher Robin, Odd Life of Timothy Green). And I have to say that I would rather JNH return for the sequel, as that would allow him to expand on his fantastic score for the first film.@George<br><br>To be fair, Interstellar is a genuine masterpiece score and maybe one my favorite score of all time, but I am not sure when Nolan will allow Zimmer to return to that type of scoring. <br><br>Hell, Time is my favorite cue ever, but again, I am not sure if Nolan is interested in that kind of music anymore.  <br><br>I guess we will see with Tenet. And yes, I absolutely think Göransson can be a future star in the making and if anyone is allow write his or her own "Time" cultural moment, it may as well be him.@mephariel @mpolonest123 - glad I’m not the only one who’s more excited for those compared to cold and dark Nolan/Zimmer scores. I’m kinda over those to be honest.And if I’m completely honest, I’m more excited by WW84, Spongebob, Top Gun, and Dark Phoenix than another potential Nolan collab.@mephariel <br>I can definitely see that, especially with King Arthur and Spiderverse. I do think his music adds a lot to the films he scores (Steve Jobs and Man From Uncle being two great examples) where he consistently switches up styles and tones to keep things fresh. Maybe not the strongest theme writer but I do love his approaches.

Don't worry this one won't be an essay's length. After listening to this score again, it's probably Jablonsky's best since Steamboy. The main theme, while sounding a bit like Transformers (hell it's even in G minor like "Autobots"), is used much more effectively with clever writing where the theme clashes with the villain themes, some much appreciated key variations, and a feeling of fun and adventure that hasn't been present in a Jablonsky score since "Your Highness".

"Become Human" has a wonderful variation of the theme that conveys something similar to "Optimus", that there'll always be a tragic side to these characters. And like TF5, the use of electronics here give the score a sense of sound variety, despite the lack of woodwinds and other instruments.

"Turtle Power" is nothing more than fun. Just pure fun. It sounds like the lighthearted, yet bombastic music Nickelodeon would use for their cartoons, which is incredibly fitting for this movie. And like the main theme, the key variations really make it feel special and unique.

While I don't remember the Shredder theme too much, the Krang theme is extremely memorable. I like how the first half of the theme is a reference to Halloween, conveying the insanity of this deformed creature, and how it slowly develops seamlessly to Steve's own, original composition for the character. Plus the way the 2 villain themes come together in the finale, is incredibly satisfying.

Honestly, this might be Jablonsky's best score since Steamboy. It's wonderfully melodic, has echoes in tone to Danny Elfman and James Horner's work on the Spider-Man franchise, and it reminds me of his early work when he didn't have to worry about being compared to Zimmer. Hell, "Baxter Stockman" is basically a Desperate Housewives track.


superultramegaa2018-04-14 22:41:20
Also I just realized I said it's Jablonsky's best score since Steamboy twice. Good job on not editing that, me.


mpolonest123 2018-04-15 09:22:42
Couldn’t agree more.

For some reason I always forget this score, but whenever I revisit it I instantly fall in love. If anything, this score is definitely a throwback to the classic MV scores. The themes are simple but still memorable, and the variety of music keeps things interesting.

Would love to see more scores like this from Steve!


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-15 12:03:36
I need to listen to this one again. I love the themes, but the many action cues seemed to sort of blend into one another (unlike with Steamboy, where each one has its own distinct personality). I agree it's one of Jablonsky's best scores though. Hoping that this year's Skyscraper is similarly fun.


superultramegaa2018-04-15 13:45:32
Yeah, I listened to the end credits music of Game Over, Man, and I gotta tell you guys, it's nothing special. Though to be fair I'm really not sure if I've ever heard I really great score for a Hangover-type of movie like that. So I don't think there was much Steve could do with that one. Maybe Skyscraper will give him more opportunities to show his skill.

@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.

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.

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?

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.

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...
