I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the  action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P <br>I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.one more question. Who wrote the Bumblebee theme?Does an instrumental version of BATTLE CRY exist?? 0.oAwesome Thx.which tracks are suites, cuz it seems like a bunch are...?
Love Izzy!I take it back...<br><br>Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....<br><br>What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.There's also a little hint in "Code Red" too...Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...
Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.Lea Halalela on CD “RHYTHM of the PRIDE LANDS“ from 1995;...<br>Frankfurt show was amazing, Leipzig tooHey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.<br><br>The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.
Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!<br><br>Greetings from Southampton/EnglandHybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.Steve explained it, they had a certain deal and could only sell a certain number of copies. When it was reached, they had to remove it from digital stores.I also asked myself the same thing lol

Rupert Gregson-Williams makes a Great score for this movie.

This Score Is Like other War Films Like 13 Hours Music By Lorne Balfe &
Lone Survivor By Explosions In The Sky & Steve Jablonsky

Very good suite, very doog job from Rupert. The beginning of the suite sounds like Kingdom of heavne from his brtoher Harry.


psycosid072016-11-30 02:25:31
Yeah, you're right. Debney's complete score was rejected and replaced by Rupert Gregson-Williams for the final cut.

Just saw the film, definitely one of my top Oscar contenders for this year. Great direction, acting, cinematography, etc.

As for the score, Rupert hit it out of the ballpark. The first half reminded me of a bluegrass "Winters Tale" while the second definitely had that modern action scoring we are all accustomed with. Only major complaint is some of the dissonant sections during the war scenes but, given the context, it's understandable.

(And 2:00 in Climbing for a Kiss, holy shit that's beautiful)

Rupert Gregson-Williams Has Done An Great And Awsome Score Again Hacksaw Ridge I Can Wait To See This Movie

What's the point of the first part of your post? Most of that information is up there already. Also, Watch Your Capitals.

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-09 22:22:56
That is a hell of a beautiful movie. Very powerful, very emotional, and intense as hell. Actors performances are unbelievably good as well. Needless to say, Rupert's score plays a big role in the movie, especially towards the end. A job nicely done by all involved, I sure hope to see this movie at least nominated for the Oscars.

Best war movie...possibly best war movie score of all time...

I just saw this in the cinema last night and I was totally blown away by both movie and score. Rupert has really re-invented himself this year and it seems like Mel Gibson has too.


will2016-11-08 09:32:08
best war movie score of all time? while i really enjoy ruperts work, but wow that is a bit too much don't you think? :D


Brent2016-11-08 10:27:25
"Best war score of all time" may be a stretch, but I really do quite like this. I'm SO SO happy with what Rupert has produced this year. Portions of Tarzan are good, this score (and film) are amazing and The Crown is absolutely sublime. Can't wait for Wonder Woman!


Saurabh2016-11-08 17:38:56
I won't say Rupert has reinvented himself. His sound is more closely associated with the 90s RCP sound. While Tarzan seemed pedestrian for me, Hacksaw Ridge has a great blend of that power anthem sound and some good themes.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-07 19:23:30
Wow, the main theme as heard in the first two tracks is reeeeeeally similar to his brother's "Burning the Past" from Kingdom of Heaven. Did Mel phone up the wrong Gregson-Williams? :P

I mostly like the score, but it's interesting that you can basically divide it into three parts: first pretty but very low-key drama writing kind of a la Winter's Tale (it's been compared to Thomas Newman and James Horner but that's a big stretch IMO), then modern themeless drum-heavy RC action and suspense music of the kind I don't like so much ("Japanese Retake the Ridge" could easily be from a Junkie XL score, which is not a compliment), and finally some good old thematic power-anthem-type emotional action scoring of the kind I do like very much. The first part isn't especially memorable and I could do without the middle part entirely, but otherwise I really enjoy this. It has a narrative and is definitely a step up from Tarzan, although I still personally prefer RGW's lighter efforts like Bee Movie and Bedtime Stories.

Crisp Rat reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-05 06:03:02
Rupert really blew me away with this one! I was not expecting this gem of a score at all, especially in light of some his recent scores. I've been thinking a lot about this score, and what makes it so memorable. What sets this apart from his other scores, or really any other film score out there? And I believe the answer is this: strong, memorable themes, displayed in a way that really allows the music to move you. Because if music fails to move you, then what is it's purpose in any kind of media? Memorable emotions create memorable scores. And that, I think, is why scores like Inferno or BvS fall flat compared to the old Zimmer. Screechy sound design will never create an emotional response.
Check out this video that I found to be interesting and insightful:

So apparently Rupert is also going to score Wonder Woman, while still using Zimmer's WW theme from BvS. Can't wait!

Frank reply Replies: 0 || 2016-11-04 10:01:35
This score is easily the best score of Rupert's whole career thus far and he finished it with less than a month. I hope he can maintain such level for Wonder Woman.

isildur2016-10-01 18:22:17
It really does. Film has really amazing reviews. So, along with the film it seems there is a chance for a nomination for the score too. Just like they nominated Henry's score for Capt. Philips (which by the way wasn't that good a score)


Dragonseeker2016-10-01 19:52:03
Captain Phillips nomination was a joke. But this sounds better in every way.

Wasn't John Debney scoring this?


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-23 23:03:30
Yes and he was kicked out !


Ds2016-09-23 23:29:30
Do you have more info on that, Hybrid? Like, was it Mel? Or the studio?


Brent2016-09-24 01:18:08
Part of me wishes it was still Debney as his previous effort with Mel resulted in one of the best scores I've heard, but I'm excited to hear what Rupert does here.


mpolonest1232016-09-24 01:25:12
Outside of Winter's Tale (which is severely underrated imo) nothing RGW has scored has stood out to me. I would've loved to see someone like Lorne Balfe take this type of project on.

Still, fingers crossed for Rupert to deliver something good. :-)


Edmund Meinerts2016-09-24 13:33:58
mpolonest123, you should check out Bedtime Stories and Bee Movie (the latter admittedly with a bit of behind-the-curtain help from Hans himself). Both are really fun scores, albeit a lot lighter than what this movie calls for. RGW is quite talented, actually, a lot better than what the fairly bland Tarzan would have you believe.


mpolonest1232016-09-24 14:59:47
I'll definitely take a listen to both of those. I had heard Bee Movie a few years back but it never stuck with me. Maybe it's time to revisit it :-)


Paul2016-09-24 18:51:59
Wow... Varese Sarabande still suck at artworks. Especially fonts... Ugh...

I'm fine with Rupert scoring this one, but I have the same question as Ds - why Debney was 'kicked out'?


Meta2016-09-25 03:39:17
Maybe the whole "Mel is an Anti-Semite" flared up...Who knows. I thought those two were tight after Passion of the Christ.


Hybrid Soldier2016-09-25 11:15:59
