Need some page for the new "Greyhound" film scored by Blakeu ask "is it from the sessions?" and you know thats rips whith sfx? :D hahah. made my dayI think we were all clear that both Snyder and Tom intended to use material from Hans. I donít think heís writing new music, but I do think Tom will use a lot of Hans.Is it true that Hans Zimmer is working on the Snyder Cut? That would be spectacular!Lol itís probably low quality rips from the film
whaaat? the complete score?? where??where did you find it? what is it called on youtube?i found a complete album on YouTube, but the audio quality is not good as I thought. Is it from the recording session? Where can I find a high quality audio of this album to listen?just going to leave this here: el matador del mar, a great character, killed so easily because sparrow needed to be the great hero.<br><br>i disapprove, long life salazar!!What is the name of the song playing when Maggie leaves itís beautiful and haunting.  The music from this movie is sheer genius a mix of heavy metal, jazz, and rock and roll!  Awesome...!
Yes! Finally someone else who has heard it to! I am a HUGE fan of both trilogy's, do you like POTC?R.I.P. to Ennio Morricone, dead at 91. <br><br>For those who arenít as familiar with his material, check out Once Upon a Time in the West, easily one of the greatest scores of the past century. You can definitely hear where Zimmer took inspiration from, for Pirates/Lone Ranger/Sherlock/Rango/etc. <br><br>ďParlayĒ is such a love letter to the main tune from OUATITW...itĎs unreleased...@hybrid soldier<br>Where can i hear the songs you have listed out? I can't find it on YouTubeLooks like Zimmer's abandoned Z+. It only worked on one iOS system, then because it wasn't recompiled for the next system wouldn't decode the music you paid for. Locking your purchases into an app was a VERY BAD idea. Now there's nothing out there that's as good at providing a great surround sound experience for headphones.
So Lorne's mp3 uploads. Would anyone class that as an 'official' release of the music from the movie?Currently watching this movie the first time ^^ ... and then... suddenly a music motive spontaneously pops up. Sound exactly like a little part from Armageddon "Secondary Protocol" -  really cool :) love the music in this movie. Very intense.I don't mean to pile on but do you really think that Hans touring is the only obstacle to a CD release of a completely forgotten 12-year-old film and score by a different composer?And why would Hans' tours be responsible for the fact that many albums these days don't get a physical release? While at the same time those tours even got an LP release... lolYou are aware that there's a pandemic going on right now, right?

So with Godzilla vs. Kong still slated for November release who do you guys think will compose the score, loved every MonsterVerse score yet.

So I was wondering who do you guys think will compose Godzilla vs Kong?

I would like to see Junkie XL for this movie. ;-)


mpolonest123 2020-04-16 16:13:40
After KoTM Iím definitely game for Bear McCreary to return. Easily one of the best scores of 2019. Not a big fan of either Desplatís or Jackmanís scores personally.

If it had to be someone new I would pick Holkenborg.


MrZimmerFan2020-04-16 17:28:09
I would disagree in that concept, every Monsterverse movie has a different tone and each movie/score works tremendously well.

Even McCreary's arragements for Ifukube's themes (terrific) or the most aggressive and chaotic Goldmisthian/Williams/Goldenthal-esque (with touches of Beltrami and JNH) in G14's score or the percussive-massive in Kong.

I would mind if Desplat return or McCreary, even Jackman. But for dreaming speaking... Alan Silvestri :D


mpolonest123 2020-04-16 17:46:33
@MrZimmerFan

Like I said, itís more of personal taste for me. I found Desplatís score fairly forgettable, the most memorable piece in that movie is the tracked Ligeti stuff for the HALO scene. Jackmanís score for Kong has some good moments throughout, but like most Jackman scores I find it pretty bland. It doesnít help that I really dislike that film too (Peter Jackson made the definitive Kong imo, with one of JNHís greatest scores).

Silvestri would be a solid choice, if only because he still has the chops to write great action material.


Edmund Meinerts2020-04-16 20:05:14
In a dream world, Don Davis.

In a realistic one, I say let McCreary continue for now. His KotM was one of last year's best scores and I'd love to hear him make the Ifukube Godzilla theme duke it out with Max Steiner's one for King Kong. Which reminds me, we don't actually need a Silvestri score for that movie because we've basically heard it already - both those themes pop up in Ready Player One :p


mpolonest123 2020-04-16 23:43:00
@Edmund Meinerts

LOL, I honestly forgot about that score but yes, RPO already covered both themes for Silvestri.

And Don Davis would be an excellent choice. His action material for The Matrix/JP3 is some of the best in the industry. Itís a real crime he isnít still working as much (same for David Arnold).


Macejko2020-04-17 10:10:57
I wholeheartedly agree. McCrearyís score was spectacular and Iíd love him to return.


Miralsice2020-04-17 14:09:24
I was disappointed in lack of thematic connection between movies and there is small chances that they will return at least Jackman's Monarch and Kong motifs, reuse of Desplat material even less.


Miralsice2020-04-17 14:11:28
@Edmund Meinerts Really good choice, Davis is a great variant for monster moive. In addition it would be joy for me if Christopher Young get involved in this crossover, his style (not only horror, but also an action) is perfectly fit for clash between giant monsters.


MrZimmerFan2020-04-17 18:58:48
Nobody apparently knows in the Godzilla's franchise, not always use Ifukube's theme.

Kow Otani creates a terrific theme for the character and works awesome (also one of the best Godzilla movies, GMK) even Michiru Oshima (who semingly inspire Desplat for his theme) create a furious and well crafted theme. Also the dark and atmospheric theme by Reijiro Koroku in 1984's Gojira, good stuff.

Even King Kong, John Barry and John Scott make very good themes for his respective movies, even this one are no very good, JNH with his masterfully score and also Jackman with his more tragic theme for the character.

Every director gave his directions of the composers, also this is not like Marvel or DC, there is more important connections because the characters are constantly in there, in the Monsterverse is different, and different approachs in the three movies (also, Toho have the rights for the music, and in older Godzilla movies use stock music, specialy the Godzilla's March, not even recomponse since the Heisei Era, until with RPO and KOTM), and works really good in the movies: the atmospheric, chaotic action by Desplat in G14, the agressive action packed wonder by Jackman on Kong (also the nice nods to Alan Silvestri action music in tracks like Ambushed or Man vs. Beast) or the most epic greatness by McCreary in KOTM, even McCreary said he creates his own Godzilla's theme for the movie, but after trying in the 'rebirth' sequence, wich also tried with the Desplat's theme, he concludes the use of the original theme by Ifukube.


MrZimmerFan2020-04-17 19:00:07
Also, i forget, the Masaru Satoh scores, he dosen't use the original Ifukube's theme, he create different themes for every movie he compose in the Showa era.


Miralsice2020-04-17 23:43:02
@MrZimmerFan I also noticed it, while explore Godzilla's musical world.

The way I see it - every new design is a new Godzilla and that's why he get a new musical theme. Particularly in the case of Legendary Godzilla. His origin is completely different from every other versions and that's why he must have a new theme and Ifukube didn't fit with him (for me, of course) in terms of internal logic of the movie. I mean this universe don't even connected with Godzilla 1954. But if we look at this as epic monster movie with big effort to envoke nostalgia feelings it works really good.


Miralsice2020-04-17 23:44:57
By the way @MrZimmerFan, do you have a link where McCreary talking about work with Desplat theme? I read many of interviews, but there was almost nothing about Desplat's work.

Eh, no.

Masaru Satoh compose new themes in every movie he worked in the Showa era, because the changing tone of the movies and aspects, specially Son of Godzilla or Godzilla vs. the Smog Monsters, in that movies, you heard two different themes for the main character.

The Return of Godzilla is a sequel to the 1954 movie, and use a new theme for the character. Is not for the designs, if that so, Ifukube have create 4 new themes in the 4 movies he worked in the Heisei era, because is a different Godzilla. The problem is Toho, he has the rights of the music (even they create a entire score for Godzilla vs. Gigan only with stock music from other Ifukube scores). Desplat could use the original theme if Toho approved to used it (not until 2018 in RPO, wich also is a Warner Bros movie), but he accomplishs the original work of Ifukube in the 1954 original movie, also nods to his writting in the Toho movies.

Let's put this example, Godzilla 2000, have a new theme for the character in the Japanese cut, by Takayuki Hattori, but in the American cut, J. Peter Robinson, was allowed to use stock music from Toho, but no new arragements, because he felt the score by Hattori was pretty bland (also one of my least favorites scores in the franchise), was is not that bad when you compare to something like Godzilla: Final Wars, man, really bad score.





Miralsice2020-04-18 13:52:42
Yes, Showa (part of it) is my wrong. But does Godzilla completely change his design in Heisei after 1984? No, if memory serves. So there is no need in change of theme.

And if I remember correctly Godzilla 2000 include Ifukube theme in one scene (when Godzilla walking through the city) in Japanese cut as well. But this movie (as almost all from Millenium era, not to mention Heisei) have a connection with 1954 movie and it explains use of Ifukube's theme. In terms of internal logic of the movie universe of course. But it's just my thoughts anyway :)

And by the way, Riichiro Manabe is composer of Godzilla vs Hedorah (also Godzilla vs Megalon) not Masaru Sato


Miralsice2020-04-18 13:59:30
And about part of Showa, I forgot to mention, that Sato's Godzilla theme from "Son of Godzilla" (if I remember correctly) he composer is same from "Godzilla Raids Again" with increased tempo and additional instruments adding. My ears could be wrong, so I need to recheck.


Miralsice2020-04-18 14:04:05
"In his blog
https://www.bearmccreary.com/#blog/blog/films/godzilla-king- of-the-monsters/"

Maybe it's a harsh words from me, but it sounds like they just don't want to work with other material when they finally got Ifukube music. Anyway, knowing how much McCreary and Dougherty loves Ifukube's music, I can understand their choice :)


MrZimmerFan2020-04-19 12:30:20

Oh, yes, i forgot it was Riichiro Manabe.


But Godzilla vs. Biollante was Koichi Sugiyama and they use the original (not recompose, it was stock music) Ifukube's theme, is curious, because Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah was actually compose by Akira Ifukube and not, Godzilla 2000, use the theme in the American cut, the Japanese cut (which i have, german blu-ray) dosen't use the theme, uses the theme compose by Hattori.

And for McCreary, this quote:

''I sketched Godzillaís rise from the sea with a variety of themes, including my own original theme, and even Desplatís theme. However, every version paled in comparison to the classic Ifukube Godzilla Theme blaring as he ascended from the depths. When I first played that scene for the creative team, featuring Ifukubeís theme, I saw a tear roll down Michael Doughertyís face''


Miralsice2020-04-22 12:08:14
@MrZimmerFan I checked my japanese version of the movie and american version, it revealed that my version of japanese cut contains Ifukube theme in scene where Godzilla walk through the city I talked about few day ago. This is not a lie, my version contains only Takayuki Hattori music without any of J. Peter Robinson tracks, and tempo of Ifukube theme is sounds slowed down.

But that's not all, I also rechecked my Godzilla: Millenium album with Hattori music and found out that it also contains Ifukube theme. So looks like you have a different japanese cut of the movie where Iufukube theme was removed, or I don't know how else to explain this.


Miralsice2020-04-22 12:11:42
'And for McCreary, this quote'

Yes, I meant it when I said that my words is too harsh and that McCreary and Dougherty is a big fans of Ifukube music :)


Miralsice2020-04-22 12:13:11
Oh, and by the way, Son of Godzilla really contains an advanced Sato's theme from Godzilla Raids Again with additional instruments and increased tempo.


MrZimmerFan2020-04-22 13:54:18

The American version includes the J. Peter Robinson tracks, and yes, my mistake, the japanese cut includes stock music from the original Akira Ifukube's theme (the Heisei arragement from Godzilla vs. Mothra), but that my point: none of this music is new arragements of the theme, is just like in Godzilla vs. Biollante or Godzilla vs. Gigan.

Just for clarified, Hattori dosen't use the theme, is Toho putting that theme in the movie, like the end credits of GMK

:-/ Hmmmmm.... This is really an underwhelming score. It's not bad by any means, but most of the action/suspense music is incredibly generic. And the horn of doom... really?!?

I will say, I do like the use of electric guitars in the first half ("The Island" is pretty badass) and there is some decent orchestral writing in the second. There just seems to be something missing that would make this feel more inspired.


MrZimmerFan2017-03-03 18:56:17
I'm not the biggest fan of Jackman, but I think is a enyoable score (honestly, I prefer Uncharted or Pixels, but I have fun with this). I like the guitars with orchestra (The Battle of Skull Island have this epic/heroic theme for Kong or the textures for Monsters Exists)

Not the worst.


mpolonest123 2017-03-03 20:58:59
Like I said, it's not a bad score at all. I won't even compare it to JNH because the film is obviously a different beast entirely. The problem is the lack of a distinct voice mixed with some bland, modern action material that borrows heavily from Silvestri and Brian Tyler.

Jackman has always had trouble finding his sound. His scores are always enjoyable but they seem to have trouble being distinct enough. That's one reason I love TWS. The electronic style mixed with the traditional action scoring allow it to be fresh and original, no matter how harsh it gets. If you didn't tell me Jackman scored Skull Island I honestly wouldn't be able to tell you who did.


Macejko2017-03-03 22:39:14
Yes, Jackman underdelivers yet again. I swear, the best thing that came out of his career was Matt Margeson.


Edmund Meinerts2017-03-04 01:04:18
Heh. That's harsh, but I have to admit that Margeson's recent work has impressed me more than Jackman's. The latter had some excellent scores early in his career, but since Wreck-it Ralph he hasn't really impressed me...was not at all impressed with his Captain America scores and even his latest animated/comedy scores like Big Hero 6 and Pixels were missing something. Although I did think Birth of a Nation last year was an impressive new direction for him.
