Just realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)
That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.Are you going to visit Russia?!) We are waiting for very much!)He posted it before this site added the tracklist.
Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.
Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.

I have been revisiting a lot of scores of the MCU leading up to Infinity War, and what I don't really understand is why they didn't used almost any of the previously established themes in this one. He even created a new theme for Captain America, when he could have used his own theme from Winter Soldier. In fact, I think Winter Soldier's theme is the only one returning. Age of Ultron, although it was a really chaotic score, at least had some continuity and was a lot of fun, but this score feels flat for the most part of it.

And I really enjoyed TWS but for me this was a step down. But I must recognize that there are some great action cues, especially in the Airport Battle, but apart from that I didn't found anything that remarkable.


mpolonest123 2018-04-25 23:43:18
For the most part I agree with you, especially in regards to continuity. Him writing a third theme for Cap makes no sense whatsoever, considering that the credits of TWS had a more traditional take on his CA theme which is basically what he ended up writing for Civil War. Same with the lack of The Falcon theme, which was even used in Ant-Man. I have a feeling this has something to do with what the Russo Bros wanted however.

As for the overall score though, I actually think it works great in context. Considering the film is a thriller, the more nuanced approach Henry took here feels very appropriate. And even though it’s a short motif, I genuinely like the theme for Black Panther.

Is Henry Jackman's WS Captain America theme used at all in this score? I know the osinato pops up but I don't hear the main "Taking a Stand" at all.


Mike2017-01-25 23:22:29
No, for some reason Jackman wrote a third theme for the character in this one. :P The WS ostinato does show up in Cap's Parting Words for the credits, though.

Hey, does anybody know something about the Avengers Suite???

does anyone know the cue names that appear in the "Tunnel Chase" sequence by chance?


Anonymous2017-01-23 10:18:18
umm....."Stairwell / Tunnel Chase"


Medigo2017-01-23 15:11:55
and before you say it
yes some of it sound a little different in the movie
but it IS the theme
the movie just edited a few parts


Jay the Dinosaur2017-01-23 18:39:10
Let me rephrase...

The main cue used in the album is "Stairwell/Tunnel Chase", but the film version used in the film are these cues.

Stairwell fight - "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase" (First part)
Rooftop fight - "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase" mixed with a section of "Market Fight"
Car chase sequence - "(Unnamed sequence)" mixed with the rest of "Stairwell / Tunnel Chase"


Medigo2017-01-24 10:01:25
I feel like the unnamed sequence IS the tunnel chase, just with some instruments removed (up until Bucky takes the bike)

because otherwise a section of the sessions track just goes unused


Jay the Dinosaur2017-01-25 04:47:35
There actually is a section missing if you think about it. Right where Bucky lands to where Cap steals the car is missing. That's where it trails back, but like you said "maybe it is the tunnel sequence."


Medigo2017-01-25 17:40:25
the movie track also does some re-arranging of certain bits
reuses one part twice and edits out others (about 20 seconds worth)
so that unnamed sequence must have been inserted after to fill the timegap
its a mess really

The magic of Henry Jackman's music still kicks butt. The Captain America: Civil War complete score is another certified blockbuster film soundtrack. I love it!

Medigo reply Replies: 0 || 2017-01-01 21:06:11
yup

and with the way the score really sounds (not the orchestral revised album version)
I'd say its worth listening too

### EDITED ####
I found this on You Tube by complete accident. It's part of Winter Soldier's Recording Sessions. I don't know if its a demo for the film or if its Jackman's Proof-Of-Concept for The First Avenger. Does anyone know what it's called?


Mike2016-10-29 21:36:05
This is the end of the credits for the film. Listen to the last 2 minutes of the end credits, and bam, there it is. Shame the whole score didn't follow this mold.


Joseph Solano2016-11-07 23:43:07
@Mike Ooh... ok. I actually didn't mind the style of the score, but I would have loved more reliance on this style than the more modern style.

I dunno about this "Avengers Suite" demo...

sounds like it's just a mashup of the main themes, or a demo of the Civil War track or something...

Anyway, most of this music is already on the OST, so I dont see what the big deal is.


Medigo2016-10-28 13:32:03
I wouldnt call 50 %
'most of the music'

also are you talking about the suit up above?

because thats clearly not the suite from the sessions


Meta2016-10-29 03:16:55
Based on what I heard in the film, I'd say the OST captures pretty much everything you need to hear from this score....

Unless of course you're dying for that piece where Cap holds the helicopter...

Otherwise I heard nothing else of note.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 0 || 2016-10-26 01:49:03
I hope this complete score establishes more themes than the official soundtrack (which was my only complaint).

That "Avengers Suite" is making me wonder if Jackman was initially gonna incorporate the different franchise themes before the directors decided to go the route they did.

As much as I like this score (I really don't get some of the hate it received) even I'll admit that it should have been more faithful to the preexisting ideas.


Mike2016-10-23 20:33:07
Same...I really wanna hear it.


Edmund Meinerts2016-10-24 10:21:11
I don't think it got a lot of *hate*...more like a lot of "meh". :p

I would indeed be curious to hear that Avengers Suite. Especially with the Scott Glasgow co-composing tag. He's an excellent composer who I never thought I'd see contributing to an RC score...


Mike2016-10-24 17:16:41
Yeah, I noticed that name...which is nowhere on the OST page. Do we know what he contributed throughout?
