Formality indeed. Complicated ! lol<br><br>You can bet Blake Neely didn't need anyone to "write" those 10 seconds !! lolI always found these credits to be a bit confusing. Klaus Badelt is credited on almost every cue, even when his themes don't appear and another additional composer is credited as well. I thought maybe it was just a formality that Zimmer and Badelt were credited everywhere (I mean, how much could they be involved on a cue like "Welcome to the Caribbean"?), but then "No real ship" and "Sword Fight Pt. 2" have no Badelt for some reason. Does someone know a bit more about this?well the composer confirmed he is working on it to be released very soon<br>"It's funny tho......people always complain how Hollywood plays it safe and how movies don't take chances..........but when a movie with tonal shifts that challenge the viewer and offer something bold shows up, people bitch and complain."<br><br>I didn't think it was possible for a Bay fan of all people to be this insufferably pretentious.<br><br>I thought that was more Snyder fanboy territory.<br><br>But here we are, calling dog-humping, Decepticon testicles, and mommy-on-pot-brownies "challenging the viewer."<br><br>Kudos, man.  Kudos.<br><br>You can hide behind however many fallacies you want.  If "Not to me" and "You do you" didn't give it away early on in this thread, I DIDN'T try to treat my opinions as fact.<br><br>But that doesn't mean I'm going to add a little "IMO" at the end of every goddamn sentence just to coddle you. <br><br>On the flip-side, consistently making appeals to authority and popularity, "B-b-but Spielberg said!", "B-b-but the Forbes poll said!" don't make you objective.<br><br>Y'know, it's funny.  When I listed off better blockbuster examples, you could've very easily just argued against them on the level of the films themselves, and everything would've been fine.<br><br>Sure, you would've just claimed you can't see the action at night sooner, which is rich when you praise the film series that puts the subjects of its action scenes OUT OF FOCUS every other shot, but hey, that's just honest opinions versus honest opinions.<br><br>But using two belated half-assed sequels from different, less talented directors that lost most of the appeal of the first movies, as some sorta litmus test for how well-liked the first movies were, is the biggest bunch of bullshit I've ever heard.  That's not objectivity, that's not even confusing correlation with causation, that's saying 1+2=4.<br><br>That's the real joke here.  Instead of accepting that your love of Bay is nothing more than a opinion, just as my claim that he misses the point of what makes action movies fun is, you turn into an overly-defensive nut, desperately quoting every opinion piece under the sun to pretend your opinion is some statistically-backed fact.  I've seen you do this every time someone talks shit about Bay around here.  It's psychotic.<br><br>Bad movies make money.  Everyone knows that, and everyone knows that's not proof of quality.  But if that's the kinda road you wanna go down, I guess movies like Avatar, The Force Awakens, or all the Avengers movies, are "objectively" better movies in every conceivable way than anything Bay has made in his entire career.  I mean, CLEARLY those films must have a bolder style and push more boundaries.<br><br>Why else would more people watch and rewatch them, right?<br><br>Reasonable causation is for those goshdarn geek journos.<br><br>And by the way, The Last Knight lost money.  Period.  Almost 100M according to Paramount themselves.<br><br>That's not just a domestic bomb, that's a bomb altogether.<br><br>Have a nice day.Siding with the guy that lied through his teeth to feign objectivity seems like a bad call.<br>==================<br><br>Kinda ironic, coming from you....but I'll take it as a compliment. Thank you! <br><br>And yes, he sides with me because what I say is common sense. For whatever reason, you have these strong negative feelings toward Bay films and those feelings blind you to some pretty obvious truths. <br><br>Have to say tho - for a 'hater' you sure know A LOT about him, his style and his movies. <br><br>Just admit it - you are a huge Bay fan but you just want to score some points with the snobbish internet crowd. <br><br><br><br>============<br>In any case, modern Bay and Snyder don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Fury Road.<br>============<br><br>Oh, you're one of THOSE people......"Fury Roaaaaaaaaad is DA BEST FILM EVAAAAAAAA".<br><br>Let me guess: you also think that Nolan is the greatest director/person of all time. On par with Jesus himself. <br><br><br><br>==========<br>What DOES matter is scripts with razor focus, sharp pacing, witty and/or charming humor (if it wants humor, that is), and characters likable enough to carry us through the narrative.<br>==========<br><br>Which is what Transformers 1 is. <br><br>Which is why the movie connected with audiences. It was - at its heart - a story about a boy and his car. Even the most jaded critics enjoyed that aspect.<br><br><br>=============<br>And again, the likes of Pacific Rim, or 300, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean, or the first Kingsmen, or John Wick, or most Guy Ritchie films, or the better fourth of superhero films, illustrate that Bay and Snyder have no excuse.<br>=============<br><br>Excuse? For what?<br><br>My friend, you do realize that Bay in particular is one of the most powerful and successful filmmakers of all time, right? He is the second highest-grossing director of all time (domestically), only behind Spielberg. You can dismiss box office success all you want but you don't get to where Bay is if you're not good at your job. <br><br>Snyder is nowhere near Bay, in terms of success and influence. Personally, I don't care much about him. <br><br><br>P.S. Guy Ritchie (and Edgar Wright) are huge Bay fans. Ask yourself why. <br><br><br>===============<br>They just aren't very good filmmakers on the whole<br>===============<br><br>Your opinion.<br><br>I disagree.
Bay walks the lines between being self-serious and comical, but his films aren't well=written enough to serve the former, or witty enough to serve the latter, and the end-result is droll and annoying.<br>====================<br><br>You sure you're not a "writer" for one of those ridiculous geek sites like Collider, Screen Rant or Slash Film? Because you sound a lot like one of those "beloved" writers. <br><br>Anyway......Yes, Bay's movies always walk that line but whether that works or not is........Yes! a matter of opinion. For me, Pain and Gain is one of the best modern satires while for you it is - I'm guessing - "droll and annoying".<br><br>It's funny tho......people always complain how Hollywood plays it safe and how movies don't take chances..........but when a movie with tonal shifts that challenge the viewer and offer something bold shows up, people bitch and complain. <br><br>Some of you folks are indeed very hard to please. <br><br><br>===============<br>The first POTC earns it. The Bad Boys 2 doesn't. Infinity War earns it. TF 1/2/3/4/5 doesn't.<br>==============<br><br>Okay, now that statement is the best joke of the year! Thank you for the good laugh! Really! Oh, and I've definitely argued with you before, my friend. You are clearly one of those ten Bay haters from the IMDb forums who claim to hate everything the man does, yet they have seen EVERYTHING he had done. Why is that, I wonder?<br><br><br>===========<br>Fitting, as Synder and Bay are cut from a very similar cloth. Difference is, unless we're talking Man of Steel, I'd sooner rely on Snyder for consistently good action sequences<br>===========<br><br>Well, I would trust Spielberg on this. Because it was Spielberg who said, and I quote: "Michael (Bay) is one of the greatest action directors. He has the best eye in Hollywood." Spielberg works with a lot of directors. But he never said anything like that about any other director. So clearly he means what he says about Bay. And....you know......unlike most people, Speilberg actually knows a thing or two about filmmaking. <br><br><br>================<br>300 didn't try to start a franchise. It was a one-off adaptation of a graphic novel in the same vein as Sin City, and was successful. They tried to make a cash-grab sequel almost a decade later, without Snyder, and it failed. That's hardly the first film's fault.<br>================<br><br>It is a clear proof that people weren't that excited to visit this world again. And mind you, that happened with the first sequel! Talk about a one-time thing, huh?<br><br>At the same time, Bay made FOUR Transformers movies - with different casts - before there were any signs of audience fatigue. <br><br>That speaks for itself.<br><br>===========<br>Pacific Rim suffered from lackluster marketing, and yet still managed to turn a profit and attract a strong following.<br>==========<br><br>Excuses, excuses, excuses.....So you can display all the excuses in the world for Pac Rim but when it comes to Transformers, you don't accept anything. <br><br>Double standard much?<br><br>P.S. That "strong following" is on the internet. The same following that was supposed to make Scott Pillgrim a huge hit. Everyone knows that internet hype is not real-world hype. I know very well the type of people who act as if Pac Rim is the best thing since sliced bread. Total geeks who are angry that Transformers is much more popular and much more successful than Del Toro's "let's shoot all the robot fights in pitch black so audiences can't see shit" movie.  <br><br>Also, let's not pretend that Pac Rim is a universally beloved film. You know very well that there are A LOT of detractors as well. That's what you get when people can't tell what's going on during the movie because you shot it all at night. Just like that Godzilla movie. <br><br><br>============<br>Versus something like Transformers, which has piggybacked on an established IP, relentless marketing campaigns and tie-ins, and a fairly consistent release schedule. And even then, recycling the same bullshit eventually took its toll.<br>============<br><br><br>Wrong.<br><br>Do you read Forbes? You should. Because it's a place where objective people write. It ain't a stupid militant film geek site like Ain't it Cool News or Screen Rant.<br><br>Forbes published multiple articles explaining in great detail why the Transformers movies were successful EXACTLY because they were directed by Bay. Whether you like it or not, my friend, Bay is a brand. He is an auteur. There were multiple polls before the first two Transformers movies and Bay being the director was one of the main reasons for people to watch the movies. <br><br>But I guess you missed all of that, huh?<br><br>How convenient.<br><br><br>==============<br>Friendly reminder that AoE also relied on China (more pathetically then even Pacific Rim did) to compensate for diminishing domestic returns. To say nothing of TLK outright bombing.<br>==============<br><br>First: according to ACTUAL real data, the only TF movie that was saved by China is.......Bumblebee! Yeah, you better believe it. Go to Deadline and Forbes and read it for yourself.<br><br>Second: TLK bombed domestically, yes. <br>But not internationally. No one with actual knowledge of the situation refers to that movie as an international "bomb". Besides, there were 4 super successful TF movies before TLK. So Bay got nothing to prove. He already created one of the biggfest film franchises in history. <br><br>How many directors can say that?<br><br><br><br>==================<br>I know you like debunking Bay naysayers with "facts and logic," but it helps to not be grossly disingenuous while doing it<br>==================<br><br><br>Goes both ways, my friend. But unlike most naysayers, I don't treat my own personal opinions as facts. And if I'm being "disingenuous" then I don't even know what to say about some Bay haters who refuse to accept even the most obvious facts and truths.nopeYou realize there is a very easy and free method to get the music from that site, dont you?Random thought but this got me thinking about Zanelli's history with fantasy.<br><br>Whatever happened to his score for Delgo?  I know it's been accused of being super derivative of his other works anyways but still, it's weird to see a RCP score just drop off the face of the Earth like that.There's just something really charming about seeing a prototype for a famous future theme showing up in an old score.<br><br>Or in PotC's case, SCORES.
The only ones I've seen properly confirmed are the cues Badelt had listed on his website. The issue with everything else is that there's certain themes that's been associated with certain people, but aren't credited for every appearance. Not to mention that I've never really seen much official credits elsewhere, so I take any that I've seen with a grain of salt.This comment was made before that was properly confirmed, so he was likely going to do it solo at the time.I thought Hans was collaborating with Faltermayer For Top Gun 2From both ASCAP and GEMACan these be accessed anywhere?
The dream is collapsing... :oHoly f*ck, just listened to "Too Many Notes..." and its containing pirates theme itself from Pirates of the caribbean'No Good About Goodbye' was never the intended song for QOS. It was composed after the film was completed using thematic material from the film for Shirley Bassey to perform on her, David Arnold produced album, 'The Performance'Those files are just sitting there.<br><br>Undownloadable.<br><br>Taunting me.@Ds<br>Siding with the guy that lied through his teeth to feign objectivity seems like a bad call.<br><br>In any case, modern Bay and Snyder don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Fury Road.<br><br>I already discussed 300 and Pacific Rim.  Clearly deep scripts aren't what I'm aiming for here when I talk about good blockbusters.<br><br>What DOES matter is scripts with razor focus, sharp pacing, witty and/or charming humor (if it wants humor, that is), and characters likable enough to carry us through the narrative.<br><br>300's a great example of this, though unfortunately a lot of Snyder's other work isn't, and Bay is close behind.  Their films get bogged with way too much obnoxious bullshit to make the odd sequence worth it.<br><br>The Scorponok sequence from TF1, the warehouse fight from BvS, that's real standout stuff.  Stuff that loses a lot of its luster when surrounded by two-and-a-half, or god forbid THREE, hours of self-serious pretense, lazy humor, and/or annoying characters.<br><br>And again, the likes of Pacific Rim, or 300, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean, or the first Kingsmen, or John Wick, or most Guy Ritchie films, or the better fourth of superhero films, illustrate that Bay and Snyder have no excuse.<br><br>They just aren't very good filmmakers on the whole, and need to learn to consolidate their efforts into something that brings out their best and subdues their worst.  Snyder in particular has SERIOUSLY misjudged where his talent is lately.

While I'm sure the Lorne haters will be unhappy, I was very excited today to learn that Mr. Balfe is composing the score for the BBC's new "His Dark Materials" series (adaption of the same book that guided the 2007 film "The Golden Compass", composed by Desplat). I think there might actually be enough emotional material in this project to have Lorne finally write some melodies again! :)

Everyone, I have a question for you about a Mission Impossible Fallout movie by who will score that film. Last time I saw Henry Jackman was removed from IMDB app. But I found out the news about confirmed about Lorne Balfe will score that movie because Lorne Balfe seem all over the pictures. But I kept waiting for a film music reporter website about who will score for the mission impossible fallout movie, but we will find out the update for next month I believe that.


Miguel2018-03-30 18:45:31

This is feels like a very temped soundtrack, only that explains why the score is so generic. I wonder which movies music scenes producer-director used to make lorne do this.

Track 8 - is Tron legacy (dont know maybe he worked on it, powell was involved maybe he was too)


Mephariel2018-03-23 16:35:49
Is there a Balfe score that is not very temped? Every single Balfe score I listened to is basically giving an old score a fresh set of paint.


AndrewP2018-03-26 22:47:52
Mephariel - please educate us . Genius is what ? Blackwood is what ? Marcella is what ?


Mephariel2018-03-27 04:42:02
Genius? You mean like in the track "Forbidden Love" where he tempted the shit out of "Where We're Going" in Interstellar?


Edmund Meinerts2018-03-27 08:52:48
Mephariel, don't expect any sort of objectivity when it comes to the many-headed Balfe shill that is Andrew/Andreas/Andy. Although I note that even he has struggled to say anything nice about Hurricane Heist or PR: Uprising...some things are beyond the realm if the possible I suppose.


JamesT2018-03-27 19:40:39
@Mephariel

What score is the track Forbidden Love from?


Max Potcats2018-03-27 19:55:51
From Genius, I find some little similarities with Quantifiable Connection from interstellar complete score, but nothing shameful, if it's a temp this is not the worst we heard..

Once again the broken translation/punctuation regulars can't help themselves.


Mephariel2018-03-29 03:19:36
@Max

I'll be really specific. The entire first section of "Forbidden Love," the melodic baseline came directly from 6:03 of "Where We're Going."

It is actually pretty obvious.


Ian2018-03-29 06:28:00
Mephariel - I have no issue calling Lorne or anyone else for temping/recycling cues, but honestly those two cues seem incidentally similar if at all. And Forbidden Love is *drastically* superior, so even if there was temping involved, Lorne did genuinely good work there IMO


Edmund Meinerts2018-03-29 08:51:02

It is out. Not bad but it doesn't sound very epic or memorable. Tomb Raider had better moments.

The orchestration is so empty.


MrZimmerFan2018-03-22 18:05:12
I will said this, is more enjoyable than Hurricane Heist.

But the first was more memorable


Anonymous2018-03-22 18:15:58
yeah but this movie would be better fit for a jablonsky score.


he has bigger themes and a richer sound


MrZimmerFan2018-03-22 18:36:27
The first movie has memorable theme and enjoyable action tracks, this one, has one or three actions cues i have enjoyed, more than than i expected, but the main theme is forgetteable.

Jablonsky would fit if is the Jablonsky, for example, for TF5 or first Transformers (and i am guilty pleasure fan for Battleship)

And now i lost respect in the whole internet :D


George2018-03-22 18:49:45
Agreed. Itís simply not that memorable. Out of Pacific Rim 2, a wrinkle in time, tomb raider, and hurricane heist I thought for sure at least ONE would be a hit. Unfortunately all four of them seem pretty forgettable. Really hoping Hans puts something memorable and iconic together for X Men Dark Phoenix.


MrZimmerFan2018-03-22 18:53:03
At least Tomb Raider and A Wrinkle of Time have a theme.


mpolonest1232018-03-22 19:46:03
There are some fun action cues and an interesting mix of electronics that sounds like a hybrid of Tron Legacy and Chappie but is honestly so forgettable outside of that. Why on earth did they opt out of using Ramin's themes?

It would be like if POTC2 came out and instead of using "He's a Pirate" or any of the other motifs, Disney hired a Hans Zimmer protege to come in and write their own take on the material. When I go to see Star Wars I expect Star Wars. With this I expected at least ties to the first one.


superultramegaa2018-03-22 20:04:00
The thematic continuity complaint is a problem with the movie industry in general now. Not just Pacific Rim. It's a problem with Marvel, DC, and hell, any movie series really. Even the new TMNT movies, as good as Jablonsky's score for the second one was, still couldn't keep the original themes.

The only ones that do keep the original thematic material lately have been Transformers, Star Wars, Star Trek (at least the first 2's scores I don't know about the 3rd's), Pirates of the Caribbean, a few animated film series, and Harry Potter.

Not sure if this is a director or composer fault (probably director/studio), but it's just something we're going to have to deal with for a while until the next phase of film score trends come along.


MrZimmerFan2018-03-22 20:10:47
@superultramega: The three Star Trek movies are compose by the same composer, and the producer is J.J Abrams.

And the theme is the same.


mpolonest1232018-03-22 20:44:18
@Superultramega

What's odd is that the PR theme was used in the marketing. Same with Zimmers material being used in the Justice League trailers, so obviously the studio liked it enough. Probably the directors choice.


mpolonest123 2018-03-23 13:34:22
I was also thinking about something; Lorne Balfe worked on Terminator Genisys, a score in which the original thematic material was used appropriately but also combined with his new material. How a sequel score SHOULD be. Obviously this was the directors choice. It seems like a lot of these newer directors have no clue how music works, something which should be one of the least difficult parts of making a film.


MrZimmerFan2018-03-23 14:19:27
The only themes in Terminator Genysis was the main theme and part of the Reese theme, i guess.

The rest is new material by Balfe.

I like that soundtrack, I think that score is fun action, but I'm noticing Shao Industries are more like Tron Legacy music to me. My Opinion about Pacific Rim first one by Ramin Djawadi's score is better and his theme is perfect!

I just said this before and I want to say it again:
Shao industries sound like Tron Legacy


MrZimmerFan2018-03-22 19:19:53
It is sound like that.

Multiple times in the score, there is sounds like Tron

The descending string line is almost completely ripped from CLU

@hybrid do you have any news about Daniel suett(2014 winner of Hans Zimmer want you..,Savage Kingdom Composer, Oak Island Composer). Why Hans didn't hire him in some of his movie he's a big talent. I love Savage Kingdom soundtrack it's absolutely Zimmer style.

Haters gonna hate. I think Lorne's gonna give us a good soundtrack


MrZimmerFan2018-03-01 21:33:33
Actually, the first track is quite forgetteable and the second one is the only quite like.



Olive2018-03-01 21:51:27
I will find it!


FaresTdkr2018-03-01 22:06:09
Why just why for god sake Jablonski can give a big addition for this movie just why. Balfe I ask you to give back my money that I spent on theses two tracks...Even Joseph Trapanese can do better on this. Sorry for balfe fans but I'm really disappointed since I love this movie so much.


ThePhantasm 2018-03-01 22:13:01
where are you guys even listening to the samples? lorne hasn't posted anything about it


Olive2018-03-01 23:48:20
Yeah, where?


Andreas2018-03-01 23:52:31
Itís on itunes up for pre order. Digital release is friday 16th


ThePhantasm 2018-03-01 23:53:59
must be in other countries, cause there's nothing here in the iTunes us store

Anything on the release of The Hurricane Heist? Movie looks stupid as hell but Lorne is scoring it...


George2018-03-01 12:53:01
I was wondering that too yesterday, the director posted a video of Lorne's music last summer on Instagram and the music sounded pretty good, so hopefully we get a release!


Iamtommie2018-03-01 13:10:00
Click on details!! All the way at the bottom stands a releasedate. That is on every official release on this page


Anonymous2018-03-01 15:55:37
Why don't they just reuse the score for Geostorm lol


Andreas2018-03-01 23:54:31
They will also release of score for Marcella by Lorne balfe next week.


fs2018-03-03 12:28:47
Compared to the first score it is just generic... like every weekend output from lorne. It always sounds like he has no joy in composing... just spitw out some tracks, which only are accepted because he uses hans powerfull sample library, and job done. I am sure is able to do a lot better

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2018-03-02 06:54:39
The first track just blew me away, very cool and powerful. Between this and Tomb Raider I think March will be a very good month for us!


Fares Tdkr2018-03-02 14:07:18
The First track... Well maybe you mean the first 2 min which sound like jablonski(merlin's Staff from TF5) then start the noise in the second two mins.


Ds2018-03-02 14:29:17
I like the whole track, but what you call "the noise" is actually the part that impressed me the most!

that second one, it looks like that some idiot put one tracks two times there so it sounds pretty bad


mpolonest1232018-02-21 17:31:43
Why does Shao Industries sound like CLU from Tron Legacy?


...2018-02-21 17:47:42
This sounds fan made tbh...


MrZimmerFan2018-02-21 17:56:11
Is strange, is fricking strange.

Dosen't sound like a score for a giant monster-robot movie, at all.

Now, i would love hear Paseano or Djawadi


George2018-02-21 18:31:55
Hybrid, do you know if these are legit? Shao Industries sounds okay but the "main title" track sounds... well.. weird, almost like something is wrong with the upload


Georg2018-02-21 18:48:10
If they messed up the upload, then I don't think it would sound quite as strange... the first 20 seconds sound intriguing until the off beat drums come in and it sounds like crap from then on


Iamtommie2018-02-21 19:52:25
I'm sorry to say. But it sounds awful. If the whole score is going to sound like that I won't buy it


Ian2018-02-21 21:36:51
Tracks are gone, so yeah, I'd guess they made a mistake somehow


Max Potcats2018-02-22 10:57:56
Is it real tracks? Because the YT channel deleted the 3 videos... I guess it must be a fake.


MrZimmerFan2018-02-22 11:48:50
I don't think a discography like Milan post fake tracks.

There is must something wrong


Balfe2018-02-22 14:54:09
I would not be surprised if this was done by Balfe finally trying out his real compositional skills outside of him just acting as Hans' copy assistant. Everything that Balfe has done on his own to date is abysmal (okay The Lego Batman movie had some flair but that was probably done by the next generation of assistants).

Please go back to Ironclad and listen to Balfe before he was HBalfe, to hear his skills. Not very good, right? The man is an arranger not a composer.

This score will be utterly crap or it will sound like Tron and Transformers.

Shame as Del Toro and Steven Knight work with real composers like Max Richter who would have excelled here.


rockhound2018-03-01 17:41:11
2 tracks are already available on itunes. on march 9th, there will be also a score release of lornes music for the television series MARCELLA.

Olive reply Replies: 2 || 2018-02-25 21:40:38
Well, the fact that Djawadi was not mentioned in the credits confirms that Balfe had not used the theme written by him, right?


Brian2018-02-25 22:07:55
Olive - wrong.Balfe has said it is used in the film on Twitter.

ThePhantasm 2018-02-25 18:30:00
Damn the tracks are really short, i was hoping for some long epic music. Hopefully he'll deliver on the epic (I'm sure he will)


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-25 18:40:10
"Shatterdome Attacked", at least we'll get one 7-minute action cue...

Also. TRACKLIST YOU GET DID WHERE???


ThePhantasm 2018-02-25 19:36:20
yeah that's just one though. We'll see!! no info on a release date, on lornes twitter it says it's coming out very soon.


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-25 20:48:24
A lot of the time when a score's final action/battle sequence is split up among several tracks I edit them together into one track myself in Audacity. The most recent example was Black Panther with "The Great Mound Battle/Glory to Bast/The Jabari, Pt II". And my edit of the final battle music from King Arthur runs nearly 15 minutes. Maybe something similar will be possible for the last few tracks of this score.

I am getting a stronger Power Rangers/Transformers vibe from this cover art than what I recall from the first Pacific Rim movie.


Anonymous2018-02-09 13:10:16
because it's a transformers knockoff

Wasn't John Paesano going to do this? Why he ended up not doing it? I think Balfe is a good choice for this movie but I would have loved to hear Paesano's work on this.

Anyway, I hope Balfe keeps the main theme from the previous movie because it was amazing. I think is one of Djawadi's best themes (at least in movie scores)


Edmund Meinerts2018-02-09 12:27:10
One positive development of the switch from Paesano to Balfe is that I think it's much likelier we hear more of Djawadi's themes from the first Pacific Rim. A fellow RCP member would be more inclined to keep it in the family, so to speak.


MrZimmerFan2018-02-09 12:48:12
Paseano recorded the score last fall in Vienna, the producers dropped out.

As much like Balfe, i would like hear the Paesano's score.
