It's criminal that Mr Charles, Strategy, and It's a Trap weren't included on the OST. I guess we did get It's a Trap as a bonus track, but it wasn't the film version.Well with that score we got pretty lucky in term of theme suites being released, with 5 of them. I don't know for sure if there's more but I think we have it covered.Hybrid, do you know if any suites were written besides the ones that they released?“Our World” is a pretty amazing track, the “Murph” suite is also incredible just in how it gradually builds to that finale...Dust, Who's They, and Our World are other favorites, for sure. Our World is some fantastic ambient music. Before the film was released, I expected most of the score to sound like "Our World."
Mountains too... The Tick Tock suite.<br><br>"Our World" is a fav' of mine too, how could they not release it ?Coward is amazing. Ntfc is overratedDon’t forget Coward! :DI don't think Cornfield Chase is underappreciated because that is the cue everyone is talking about besides No Time for Caution and Mountains. The most underappreciated cue to me is Dust. The amount of mystery, wonder, and curiosity from that cue is amazing.
The development of the music in season 2 is great.<br>Love the Westworld suite, a lot of Person of Interest in this cue :)<br>Listening With A Million Ears In the West :)Mike, I definitely agree with you. I think that Cornfield Chase is an excellent example of Zimmer's diversity in music. It shows that He can compose themes that are adventurous and light-hearted rather than being so dark, which is quite different from a lot of his works including his other collaborations with Nolan.So everybody talks about No Time for Caution, and that is a great cue, but I think an underappreciated track from this score is Cornfield Chase. It sounds so whimsical and uplifting. It captures the wonder and fun of childhood really well. The fact that it's so driven by the pipe organ makes it even better. I love how Hans incorporated the organ into most of the tracks.Does Paul Mounsey secretly compose everything??? He seems to be involved in so many scores.Hi guys. Do you know who will compose the score of wonder woman 1984 ? Rupert again ? Or hans ?
General Kenobi!Isolated score is coming:<br><br>https://twitter.com/chrismcquarrie/status/103052206820136140 9?s=19I hope the site hasn’t gotten in any trouble for posting the lists :-(I haven't in a long time, you'll notice...@Hybrid I don't get it. You usually post lists anyway when stuff like this happens. Why is it such a big deal when someone else does it?

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
I facebooked Balfe and ask him but he said he was not doing it even though the music in the trailer is by him

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..


Micheal2018-03-28 16:21:13
Edmund has to me move on.you have an issue with Balfe .we know .Solo will be out soon enough for you and your tissues

I’m not a big balfe fan but honestly Edmund you have issues.Balfe obviously knows what he is doing and people keep hiring him.we get it that you love John Powell but not everyone else does.So give it a rest with the balfe bashing because it’s boring now .Night


superultramegaa2018-03-29 01:18:19
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
Why do you guys keep mentioning Powell? I'm not.

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. It’s 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.

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.

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.

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.
