there are plenty of early HZ scores that sound as bland as Lorne's early scores@Ian<br><br>I am in a moment of procrastination before dawn ... I believe you also have nothing more interesting to do than post here at the moment. I give my word that I will not be here for many hours!<br><br>@Miguel<br><br>I know, I understand and I have no problem with that.<br>Everything I wrote so far was against it:<br><br>"THE MAJORY of Zimmer's films in the last 15 YEARS..."<br><br>We know this is only valid for 5 projects (KFP3, Sherlock, Inception, Frost/Nixon and TDKR).Really ?if he didn’t contribute so much he wouldn’t be given “producer” all the time.He does a lot so that’s that.You are now resorting to searching on google on Balfe !havent you got better things to do than try and prove your uselessness point!Come onOkay, I'm a "hater" for not agreeing that Balfe is responsible for half of the music composed for Transformers, Inception and etc. I'm happy for this. Good night!
I do not know how I fell here, but a 2002 Interview...<br><br>www.scotsman<br><br>.com/lifestyle/<br><br>culture/music/theme-perks-1-622232God not again.Haters give up.This!@Miguel <br><br>How are you so sure of that? Mazzaro is credited as composer in almost every BvS cues. He and AK have had massive appearances in Inferno, Chappie and even Interstellar... Other composers were also as important as Balfe in Pirates, Da Vince Code, Rush, Lone Ranger, The Holiday, King Arthur... I do not deny the importance of Balfe in Inception, Sherlock and The Dark Knight (along with JNH, Jackman, Wesson and Djawadi), but point out that he was co-composer in almost everything done by Zimmer in the last 15 years is overkill.He was there, yes, but he was never alone.There was a team of RCP guys with him and Zimmer."Captain Philips for Jackman.Ironman for Ramin ....."<br><br>Correction : Captain Phillips for Hans, Iron Man for Hans. :P
Would love to hear Hybrids opinion ?????sure he can educate you with the facts@Miguel<br>Lorne has not worked on every Transformers film. He worked on TF 1 and 2 only. Maybe you should educate yourself before accusing everyone who questions you of being uneducated.Sorry but those three composers you mentioned have never contributed 50/50 to every score the same way as Balfe has.Boss Baby is the closet and unfortunately they needed Conrad Pope to actually come in and write the most memorable cue . Balfe on the other hand has been a major co composer even though for some reason like on Sherlock Holmes not get a co-credit.And, frankly, I do not see any problem in Balfe working on the scores of these composers. To say that he has full responsibility for the end result is the same that to say that Mazzaro, AK, or Aruj made up more than 50 percent of his previous and current scores. What we know to be nonsense, mainly in the RCP territory.I do not think it has been "uneducated". I even stated the same thing as you in the comment below posted on this same page on february fourth...<br><br>Here it is:<br><br>"I see that people have always directed some expectation to Lorne's involvement in Zimmer scores and even credit a part of their success to his "Phantom Hand" (in the end he was Zimmer's most enduring assistant, losing only to NGS, who worked with him his entire life in the most different roles). Considering all this is a bit normal to see some people rooting for him every time his name is announced to do something. That's nothing new. One part of the public reserves a certain curiosity about the newest composer who came out from under Zimmer's wings. Many of them had very high expectations about Geoff's PoTC 5 and WW by RGW. And that feeling was shared on the most different internet discussion sites."
Olive - it totally is unwarranted. <br><br>Your points are very un-educated .<br><br>Ask yourself this .... why has Balfe worked on every Transformere film ?The Majority of Zimmer’s films in the last 15 years and according to ASCAP been an equal composer .Captain Philips for Jackman.Ironman for Ramin .....<br><br><br>Okay, I'll wait for the more detailed credits in the release.Yeah, Mazzaro and AK would be more interesting choices, even Balfe.<br><br>Maybe Zimmer has more confidence in Wallfisch? He delivered Verbinsky's "Cure" gratuitously for him and then tied him up on two of his major projects last year.<br><br>When I refer to security, I talk about the "assurance of delivering a good job".Olive - wrong.Balfe has said it is used in the film on Twitter.Geostorm is fun, with a nostalgic nods to the old MV scores.<br><br>And much better than 12 Strong

Comparing this to classics like Chicken Run makes me sad. Will we ever get scores like that again?

Chicken Run is more Power than Williams, you know...

I know, the comparison is more that they are both claymation films by the same director. It's sad that they wanted interesting fresh music 20 years ago and now they just ask for generic crap with no creativity or passion.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-31 10:04:28
I've only heard a few bits of this score but it sounded nice enough, no masterpiece but no generic crap either.


Andreas2018-01-31 11:58:02
I thought it was great. The main theme is great and played throughout the score. Looking forward seeing the movie. No generic crap indeed.


Morgan Joylighter2018-01-31 16:32:36
You can reject the specific phrase "generic crap," it was just a quick way to describe how I felt after listening to the score. If some of you actually enjoy it than I don't want to insist its worse than you think it is. I just didn't have the same experience.

But I would be very surprised if any long-time MV/RC fan could listen to Chicken Run and Early Man back-to-back and not feel a sense of sadness for what we've lost in the last 20 years. There are emotions that are almost totally missing from modern scores. Emotions that are the whole reason I and others fell in love with the Zimmer style of film music in the first place.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-31 20:11:33
You could also listen to Early Man and The Replacement Killers back to back and reflect on how far Harry Gregson-Williams has come. I don't know. A whole lot of scores would suffer by being compared with Chicken Run, regardless of when they were composed.


Morgan Joylighter2018-02-05 17:30:34
Now that I cannot argue with :)

Not a bad score. Pretty fun and engaging most of the time.

Wondring how much influence Tom Howe wille have on this score. Professor Marston was such a lovely score.
