Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did it
Balfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>
Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before Dunkirk
Here's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.I hope Dunkirk wins just to make the so-called "reviewers" and those who say it isn't music, more frustrated and annoyed.

Interesting But Action Score For Harry Gregson-Williams With An New Additional Music By Stephanie Economou in Another Ben Affleck Movie 2016

While I'm always happy to see HGW get new assignments, I'm also always a bit disappointed when it turns out to be a thriller (which is the case nine times out of ten with him, these days).

I want to hear him in Narnia/Kingdom of Heaven mode again. The only music like that he's written lately are his three cues from Exodus, which are really great, but it's not enough... :(


Saurabh2016-12-18 02:18:43
I guess it's the kind of approach Affleck prefers from HGW. It's the same basic style heard in Gone Baby Gone and The Town where you have an ambient soundscape aided by some slow strings and a guiter.

HGW is extremely adept in writing some aggressive orchestral cues as in KoH, Narnia and Prince of Persia. Hitite Battle was my favorite track from Exodus. Too bad he doesn't do many such projects.

And given the outstanding work he has done with Ridley Scott, its a shame he won't be doing Alien: Covenant.


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-18 11:39:11
Yeah, Affleck seems to have assumed the "director who gets HGW to provide boring thriller scores" mantle from Tony Scott. I'm not really sure what it is with Scott...earlier in his career he would get scores with big themes, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, even Enemy of the State to an extent. But from Spy Game onwards pretty much all the scores to his movies fell into the same boring thriller-score pattern. Wonder what happened to turn him off to bold thematic film scoring? (Then again, I wonder that about most of Hollywood these days...)

"Hittite Battle" and "Tsunami" were both great. A little teasing glimpse of the HGW of old.


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-18 11:52:00
I "mostly" agree with Tony Scott's score BUT Déj&#224; Vu is fantastic in every way, and it has lots of themes... lol


rockhound2016-12-18 14:41:09
Days Of Thunder, Crimson Tide and Enemy Of the State are simpson/bruckheimer productions. Thats why these scores have big heroic themes and an epic feel. but if u listen to The Fan, thats already harry gregson-williams style, although its a zimmer score. i really liked the team tony scott/harry gregson-williams. its a special thriller music style with a very specific sounds. afflecks Gone Baby Gone was also very lovely with a beautiful theme and a couple of nice motifs here and there during the suspense stuff. the new movie has a different setting than the other affleck movies, so maybe harry is using less electronics and more orchestra.


Hari Haran2016-12-18 19:27:03
Edmund, hush.

The amount of people wanting Trent Reznor to score his upcoming Batman film frightens me.

I'd rather have HGW in thriller/superhero mode for Affleck any day, in comparison.


rockhound2016-12-18 20:08:21
sound clips on amazon.de. the music sounds great and nothing like The Town or the tony scott movies.


Brent2016-12-18 20:08:25
^ Harry better score that Batman film.


Ds2016-12-18 23:49:44
I hope HGW scores Affleck's Batman movie, seems like an obvious choice actually. Affleck keeps his relationship with HGW, and Batman remains in RCP territory. Nice deal :-p


JamesT2016-12-19 04:29:11
Love the sound clips and excited for the release on Friday!

Tracks like Ybor City remind me of early sounds of Smilla and Deja Vu; Three Years, Four Months has a Passionada and GBG flair to it; Loretta Figgis is beautiful!

Hybrid: any idea who is doing the vocal work? Lisbeth Scott??

I'm also really looking forward to The Zookeeper's Wife!

wait, HGW is not doing Alien:Covenant? I thought he confirmed before that he is doing this!
