and Zimmer was also involved in this movie as if it was in the previous ones?<br>======================<br><br>Hmm, I don't think Hans was involved here. He helped on TF4 and did some work on TF2 (to what extent I don't know) but that's pretty much it. Then again, Hans seems to be always around when it's a Michael Bay production.... :)and Zimmer was also involved in this movie as if it was in the previous ones?Really waiting for this soundtrack and hope Wallfisch will bring new vision into Hellboy universe.@Hybrid thanks a lot for your answers and your detective work!<br>Funny to see that Lorne does that much uncredited help (I know it’s only the tip of the iceberg, and that he isn’t the only one, as Bayhem said the rcp composers must help each other every time...)Please Hybrid. Make a forum with register members.
It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch.<br>.....................<br><br>Well, I'll be goddamned! I totally forgot about 'A Cure For Wellness'. I absolutely loved the movie and yes, the score is truly great and memorable, especially the main theme. Wallfisch knocked it out of the park with that one.<br><br>It seems that every time Gore Verbinski makes a horror movie we're treated with a great score. First it was 'The Ring' - which IMO is one of the best horror scores ever - and more recently 'A Cure For Wellness'. Both very immersive, creepy and atmospheric scores. Exactly the type of horror scores that I love.I think it's safe to say that the power anthems and the tracks that were very much an homage to the 90's MV/RC sound were done by Jablonsky. Balfe was never a "power anthem" type of composer. He's more like John Powell, while Steve is more like Hans. Steve has embraced the MV/RC sound, while Lorne is more "reserved".<br><br>That's why I'm extremely curious to hear Lorne's music for SIX UNDERGROUND. The 13 Hours score is great but it was very, for lack of a better word, contained. Which is understandable, considering the subject matter. But Six Underground is a huge balls-to-the-wall action adventure that takes place all over the world and Lorne really has a shot to go as wild and big as he can. I'm sure Bay would love that :)We'll see...When is the new website gonna be up? and will there be a forum with registered members?I remember seeing discussion several times on this forum about how Lorne would often reply to people on his social media accounts when they asked him for his credits in the scores he did additional music for. So does anyone have any credits that he or other composers have shared about this film?
This feature will be gone from the future website, AT LAST...I just saw the show last night in London and loved the visual integration  of the movies into the show .<br><br>Overall I reckon I preferred his show last time in London as he did not do interstellar which was really disappointing for me :( I also wish he did more tracks from the dark knight series as they were my faves at his last show.<br><br>In all the soundtracks the voters give very low note. You are a gang of unhappy people.Probably.Are there any other tracks in the album which were composed by Balfe? Just wondering...
I assumed you meant the forums themselves. I knew composer websites were a way to find their credits, I just didn't think to do it for this score yet for some reason.See the guys uotop listed next to jablonsky? click their names and go to their websites. You have to do the work. But there they are. Right on this site.^ Have to agree with you there. It’s not a terrible film by any means, but given the concept it is surprisingly bland. There were so many opportunities to do something cool with the dream concept, but it felt to me like they played it “safe”. And yes, the characters are extremely forgettable. I will give credit to Jackie Earl Haley, he does a pretty good job with the material he is given.<br><br>And I just remembered 2 excellent horror scores from the past few years: <br>It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch."Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site." <br><br>I've looked through this thread several times and I never saw that information, but I appreciate you filling me in! And yeah, Hybrid, it is kind of difficult for me to distinguish between Lorne and Steve's TF styles. They both kind of blend in since the style was established with their heavy collaboration in the first 2 films.<br>The music is good, definitely better than Amityville (which I never found scary or interesting). The overuse of the cello and ambient/atonal cues gets annoying at times, but unlike a lot of modern horror there is real substance here. A decent amount of themes (but not too many), some decent suspenseful ostinato bits, good use of children's choir, and good thematic development. I don't have any interest in Steve's ambient horror scores because I really dislike that type of music.<br><br>As for the remake it's really mixed for me. There are genuinely creepy visuals and ideas, but with often poor execution. My go-to example is there's a great dream sequence with "not-Johnny Depp" in the library with dream-like visuals such as Freddy turning around inhumanly quickly. But that final visual is accompanied by a jump-scare for no reason and completely kills the impact of it. If his turning was completely silent, it would have been much more terrifying. <br><br>Jackie Earle Haley did a really good job as Freddy, (especially in the alternate ending), and Rooney Mara executed the material she was given very well. But unfortunately the characters are bland, all fitting into the emo/hipster teenager stereotype and little else. It also doesn't help that much of the deleted and alternate scenes ended up being much more interesting than the final ones we were stuck with, (Hospital Opening, Dean's original death scenes, and Alternate Ending).

The score has leaked... well, is out in Microsoft Store

Listened to it. It is a very boring score. All is very very generic.

Steve his score was more heroic and had some good themes. The main theme doesn't use anything from the previous games.

Ramin is good at writing some excellent melancholic themes like in GOT but not very good at writing exciting action music


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-11 10:48:54
I think I agree with your assessment of Djawadi. His themes are generally strong and he's very good at writing these catchy "hook"-type ostinatos. But I've never been too impressed with his action music, which frequently comes across as "plodding" to my ears.


MrZimmerFan2016-10-11 11:48:55
Agreed, very simple score, and what a hell happen with Kevin's theme?, isn't very good for you, Ramin?

Steve understand that theme and he uses in his two works in the franchise, and creating some very good action tracks and great renditions in the games, but Djawadi replaces with this simple and boring theme.


Anonymous2016-10-11 21:42:26
I agree. The action music is the same as all his scores. Some basic strings doing a few repetive dum-da-dum notes and not going anywhere.

I like some of his GOT themes but that was also due to his releases have a decent of amount of time between them. But this year there have been way more Ramin scores and it just shows how generic it all sounds.

They shouldn't hire him for franchises that already exist. I didn't like his warcraft score either. Compared to the game "login screen" music it was incredibably shallow.



Macejko2016-10-12 00:04:43
This is one of the most thematic videogame scores out there. Nearly every action cue has its unique and distinctive sound. I seriously don't know what you've all listened to, because it clearly wasn't this.
I won't be arguing much more, since it's unlikely I'll change anyone's opinion, but I'll be editing a suite for Hybrid to post here (as I did with Warcraft). It'll showcase what I mean.


rockhound2016-10-12 09:24:00
djawadis action music is generic and boring, but steves not? are you guys kidding? even in the itunes samples ramins action music sounds more varied than the music jablonsky wrote. maybe steves theme is more heroic, but it is not less simple and generic than ramins theme. i think this score sounds really good and like alot of mindless fun.


Everan2016-10-12 13:23:35
How bout we enjoy both and not bash the work from either composers?


Macejko2016-10-12 17:05:06
No, this is the internet, you crazy? :D

Ramin absoutely owned this year thus far, and with not only Gears 4, but also Westworld and The Great Wall coming out as well, I have no doubt that he will continue to do so.


h.zamani2016-10-02 17:01:24
i thought steve jablonsky would compose soundtracks of this game !!!!!11


Macejko2016-10-02 19:05:33
Yeah, it is always better to "think" and "suppose" rather than doing a one minute internet search.
"!!!!!11" indeed.


Everan2016-10-03 00:30:11
He composed the past games, it's easy to assume he'd be back, cut the guy a break, no need to be a jerk.
