Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.The Thin Red Line >> The New World....Good for you?I don't like Hans Zimmer, James Horner is my favorite.Uhh, I don't electronic music ain't gonna work on Alita Battle Angel.
Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing — but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>
Oh wow! That’s all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Can’t insult me! I am genuinely curious. What’s this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.
he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?

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)

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.

Hybrid Soldier2016-09-23 23:03:30

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.
