Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip
...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.Your Majesty is addictive and could listen to this also day long.Was Theme is last year ?Now, what do you thinnk anout the score?<br><br>There are two things that made me underappreciate the score: first these full credits (upset that perhaps a good track might havenot been written by POwell himself) and the fact that Powell will score Han Solo (expectation that this might be a trial score)<br><br>But,<br><br>"Madrid Finale" is clearly 5 star track, and so many nods to classical era of film score.<br><br>There are 4 themes that i can gather:<br>Ferdinand theme <br>Flower Theme<br>"Caring" theme<br>and "bad guy" theme<br>and all of them are good ( not as powerful as HTTYD though)<br><br>But, i find some action writing to be quite generic ( Anthony B Willis is to blame i guess)<br><br>Suffice to say that this is already a 4 star score because this is as subtle as you can get from hyperactive Powell's animation scores
This score is BRILLIANT.Just started watching this season and the music is spot on especially the Princess Margaret episode. Gregson-Williams and Balfe have create a great score to this season.more intamint and emotional than before@Bob<br><br>Thank you for the enlightment, I will consider opening my wrists for misconduct in the next few days, thank you very much... :o<br><br><br><br>Ok seriously though, you guys should know that if there's one guy that could not care less about awards... it's Hans... :)I am really enjoying his season of the Crown.a big balfe influence in this season with hints of Churchil and Genius I think. Really excellent music/ it's me
@ds "Ramin is also doing a lot of projects but is far, far behind in terms of styles and creativity."<br> <br>I think the same for Jablonsky, Zanelli, XL, Jackman and Mancina.@macejko<br><br>"All the time he acts like the hottest shit in town, refusing to score basically everything they offer him"<br><br>You said in another comment that you never read an interview with Powell, so not reason you take that kind of conclusion of your character.<br><br>"The man hides in a cave, doesn't evolve at all and for some mysterious reason he is still revered like a second coming of Jesus Christ."<br>Powell is a clearly talented composer. He suffered criticism at the beginning of his career by sounding like Zimmer, but soon showed substance. And much more than that created an identifiable style, which today is reference to other scores of modern animations (which may be good or bad to depend on of the point of view).<br>Today he is an established composer and it is common for these composers to move away for a few years or even close their careers without many explanations for the public. In recent years we watched the estrangement of Silvestri, Horner, Williams and in the past we saw Faltemeyer, Bill Conti and Brad Fiedel drop their careers when they were at the top of the game.<br><br>" Say anything you will about Lorne Balfe, but at least he is working his ass off and slowly getting better and better"<br><br>As they said in another comment, you're compared to newbies and veterans. Balfe's having the opportunity of his life now. Take it or leave it. There's no choice. Powell, as well as Zimmer others, on the other hand, is a "senior member" of the club. He can afford to go away for a few years to resolve comprehensible personal problems without affecting the hard work he has developed in the last 20 years. Will Balfe continue to be so creative in 10 or 15 years?<br><br>@ds<br><br>"<br>Powell has nothing to prove, he has already mastered all genres"<br><br>That's funny, but it's fair. Powell Is a good composer. Not the best, far from it. Your style really narrows your work down, but we can say that from all the composers out there. So it's not a problem.The problem is he wants to limit his work to animations and fantasy.because he abhors gratuitous violence.<br><br>@george<br><br>". Although, I hate to say it, we could say the same for Zimmer in my opinion"<br><br>Zimmer's at the end of his career. All the other composers when they arrived at 60 years (with the exception of JNH, Goldsmith and Morricone) reduced the amount of projects per year and went on to choose their work best. It's a natural way.Over the years, it tends to get worse with one exception here and there. Don't keep expectations like he's in his prime<br><br>"he has "nothing more to prove", he is creatively dead."<br><br><br>Powell will work with a little more frequently in the coming years (or not) that only depends on his ambitions. However, frankly, he's never going to do three again. 4.5. 6 projects in a year. It takes a lot of motivation for that.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>Just listened to the whole thing, kind of a let down. Nothing interessting except for some action moments. Don’t even recall hearing some sort of theme. Overall it was like listening to Cars 4: Spanish World Cup.I have already listened to The Jumanji Overture and I must say it sounds really great. Let's see how the rest of the score sounds.Tracklist with track duration:<br>01. The Jumanji Overture (03:20)<br>02. Digging Up The Past (01:43)<br>03. Brantfort High (01:09)<br>04.

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)

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.

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
