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).

Benjamin Wallfisch is HZ's new Lorne Balfe right?


badbu2017-08-08 09:50:16
i don't think so...


Michael 2017-08-08 15:08:25
God no !!!! Don't think so . Balfe's music is superior than this anyday


Pete2017-08-08 15:09:21
No way . Balfe's is a far better composer .


MrZimmerFan2017-08-08 15:36:48
Wallfisch was orchestrator in many ocassions with Marianelli.

That's a very superior point


Afilm2017-08-08 15:41:16
Exactly - a great orchestrator . That's all


Oscarilbo2017-08-08 15:52:36
IMHO Wallfisch is indeed better than Balfe. His style tends more towards classic romantic than Remote Control, which is an interesting balance. Also, his thematic ideas are far more memorable. How come Balfe couldn't come up with something worthy of a Kung Fu Panda movie for the father-son relationship theme in the 3rd movie is beyond me.

Just listen A Cure for Wellness, by Wallfisch.


Mike2017-08-08 16:28:30
Oscarilbo - Father and Son fro. King Fu Panda 3 is an amazing theme . It is also very memorable . Maybe check out YouTube and see everyone else reactions !!! Wallfish is a great orchestrator but Balfe can write epic themes


MrZimmerFan2017-08-08 18:17:11
But epic themes aren't enough, Wallfisch in A Cure for Wellness creates a really creepy score, that lullaby or Volmer's theme, are memorable.


Mickael2017-08-08 19:05:57
Lol !!! Memorable hardly


James2017-08-09 00:07:14
Wallfisch is on his way to take Beltrami's former seat in horror movies. That's right.

Particularly I think the two are equally talented with the difference that wallfisch is more versatile.

Which of the two will continue in the "game" at the end of the next ten years, only time will tell.


Mike2017-08-09 03:45:45
James - regarding balfe not being versatile maybe have think about this

Action : Call of Duty, Terminator, Assasin Creed, Ghost in the shell
Comedy : Dillema, Penguins
Drama : Genius , Churchill, The Crown
Animation : Home, Lego
Horror : Blackwood, Marcella

Even looking at his web site - so much more with commercials etc


Mike2017-08-12 14:27:13
4 additional composers !!!!!


KAmis2017-08-13 04:54:49
4 additional composers isn't it ? How long is the score

Another Great Horror From Benjamin Wallfisch With His Second Collaboration With David F. Sandberg In Annabelle Creation. The Music If The Score Is Kind Of Drama/Sad And Then Come The Horror. Also He Will Works Again In A Horror Film IT(WaterTower Music) & Blade Runner 2049 As Additional Composer With Hans Zimmer & Jóhann Jóhannsson
