me who seldom watch any of these superhero movies and remakes went and saw the new aladdin last weekend.<br><br>based on my own experience of that remake i have come to the conclusion that maybe some of the reviewers are stuck-up and not open-minded? i did enjoy the new takes on some of the songs. the new movie felt like that. a new different movie to me. <br><br>i decided that i will go and watch these movies for myself now. and i would not watch (or listen to original scores) in advance to build up expectation. i will go and enjoy my time and the songs.<br><br>that's all &#175;\_(&#12484;)_/&#175; you can't please everyone.To be honest. I love the bonus score tracks, nut those remixes are a wazte of disc soace in my opinion. I would've rather have 20 extra minutes of score.<br><br>Let the Complete Score come!For everyone that's heard it, is the Deluxe Edition worth a double dip?@Hybrid is this the combination of FYC promotional score + official release by LLL?Use your hybrid skills to unravel the mysteries of the score.
Cuesheet is blank.oh yes please, including Balfe - dont start yelling, Im just really curious who did whatFinally! It would be nice to have composers credits@DT<br>Disney definitely tries to put quality into their projects, which is why I admire them. As youve said, WDAS and Pixar are both churning out some excellent and original films. Even Marvel, despite its formula and flaws, tries new things with the films and stick closely to the source material. <br><br>The problem with the remakes is that they seem to be nothing more than cash-grabs that prey on nostalgia. If you are going to retell a beloved story at least try something different and exciting, instead of trying to copy/paste what everyone has seen.This is where I wish we could edit our comments.<br><br>Not only do you have WDAS doing mostly-new movies (I hesitate to say 'original') but you have Pixar doing them as well. Toy Story 4 was their last sequel for the foreseeable future, with them even eschewing the popular option of doing an Inside Out sequel for original projects.
I feel like people are overreacting in a way that suggests these remakes have far more power than they actually do. The studio that makes them is separate from every other studio. WDAS is still creating new content and will be for many, many years to come, long after the remakes have had their heyday.<br><br>If anything, the proliferation of superhero films is far more likely to drown out originality on that front: there are multiple studios doing it.Order I went with for the album<br><br>Everything I Need (Film Version)<br>Arthur		<br>Home Invasion (Bonus Track)<br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Ask the&#8239;Sea (Bonus Track)<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Ahab Waves (Bonus Track)<br>Saving Pops (Bonus Track)	Soundtrack	0	1<br>Swimming Lessons	<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan	<br>The Ring of Fire	<br>What Does That Even Mean?Soundtrack	0	<br>Obligation (Bonus Track)	<br>Dunes (Bonus Track)	<br>Map In a Bottle<br>Mera&#8239;Montage	<br>The Black Manta	<br>Trench Engaged (From Kingdom of the Trench)	Soundtrack	0	<br>Reunited		<br>What Could Be Greater Than a King?<br>Suited and Booted		<br>Between Land and Sea		<br>He Commands the Sea	<br>Ocean To Ocean (feat.

The cue I want the most is We Strike First.@Edmund<br>I cant agree enough. These remakes suffer from the issue of being inferior to the original source material, mainly because they rely so heavily on copying the originals so heavily. Im not necessarily against Disney updating their classics if they are willing to do new takes on the material. Take Jungle Book for example; they were able to do something fresh with the concept while keeping elements of the animated film. Even Maleficent, which Im not crazy about, tried something new. <br><br>Another BIG issue Ive noticed is the fact that they lean towards hiring actors who cannot sing, or at least cannot sing on the level required. Emma Watson, Will Smith, Chiwetel Ejiofor, etc.Best shot <br>It wasnt meant to be<br>Home invasion<br>Ahab waves (0:39-end)<br>Permission to come aboard?<br>Ask the sea<br>Ahab waves (0:00-0:38)<br>Saving pops<br>Swimming lessons<br>Kingdom of atlantis<br>Legend of atlan<br>Ring of fire<br>What does that even mean?<br>Ocean to ocean<br>Obligation<br>Dunes<br>Map in a bottle<br>Black manta<br>Mera montage<br>Between land and sea<br>Trench engaged<br>What could be greater than a king?<br>Suited and booted<br>He commands the sea<br>Reunited<br>Everything i need<br><br>"Arthur" and "Atlantean Soldiers" are probably suites
Just want shrike death cue!I feel as though Menken did a bit more to differentiate his 2017 Beauty and the Beast from the 1991 one. The major pieces like "Prologue" and "Transformation" were left relatively intact but otherwise the rewrite was a bit more substantial than what Zimmer and crew did here. Compare the final battle music from the original (which consists to a large degree of upbeat instrumental versions of "Be Our Guest") to the remake (which is largely serious, straightforward orchestral action music). I haven't heard his new Aladdin so I'm not sure what the old:new ratio was there.<br><br>I'm not necessarily complaining, this is basically what I expected the score would be from the moment it was announced. The problem lies deeper, with the entire premise of these pointless remakes that allow very little wiggle room for freshness or creativity. Of course, I have no doubt this movie will make north of a billion dollars and give the Disney execs further license to print money. Maybe by the time they've remade every single film in their vault enough time will have passed that they can just start from the beginning again and nobody need ever be subject to the indignity of an original story ever again.It's a variation of the theme Anthem from the first Top Gun film by Harold Faltermeyer.whats the name of the song being played in this trailer?<br>is it available onlineThis is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.

Why this year hans zimmer dosent compose music for a great or box office hit movie ? I think before lion king we wont have any great composition from him. I really miss 2013 all the projects were cool like MOS , rush , lone ranger or even the bible.


Mephariel2018-06-27 22:48:09
He has at least two blockbuster potential films next year:

Dark Phoenix
The Lion King



Iamtommie2018-06-28 00:06:38
I'm sorry, but since when do only great of box offixe hit movies have good compositions in there scores?

He's doing Widows this year. Who knows what a surprise that might be??!!


David2018-06-28 12:00:10
Tommie , without a doubt most ( not all of them ) ot the hans zimmer great composition belong to blockbusters movies , such as christopher nolan movies , Gladiator , POTC Series , Lion king and etc. widows as you said i think the same faith of 12 years a slave will be happening for it. In 12 years a slave we just have one 3 minutes tracke name solomon which was the main theme. I really miss emotional scores such as last samurai , Epic scores like Gladiator , Dark knight trilogy , MOS and rush. These kind of scores needs epic scenes with graet budget and creative directors like nolan and howard. ( i truely like steve McQueen and appreciate his works but not a huge fan ). Another example of huge budget and hit movies have great score ( Most of the time ) is infinity war. Alan Silvestri Score is amazing for this bluckboster movie. Just listen to the track name Forge it is amazing. And as i said most of the times ( like 90%) high grossing movies and box office hites have Fantastic scores. Thank you


Mephariel2018-06-28 17:18:34
I have to disagree with Infinity War. I think that is one of the more average Silvestri scores. Too slow and dull at the beginning and the action cues are good but not great. Compared to his other action film scores like The Mummy Returns and Predator, Infinity War is a downer,


MrZimmerFan2018-06-28 17:43:25
Infinity War was good, but not near from Ready Player One.


mr2018-09-30 07:00:56
I dont even how can people consider infinity war as a great film and that too with good score. that kinda score is even worse than the worst of zimmer.


Edmund Meinerts2018-09-30 10:50:33
What are you talking about, the Infinity War score is perfectly fine


Meta2018-09-30 13:13:11
Well, Im only agreeing with the Zimmer fan because to be honest I never saw Silvestri's scores to be fitting with the movies...Infinity War only really has one theme, and it's just Thanos theme which you cant really do much with - or Silvestri had no reason to develop much outside the slow progression and the end titles, which used some kind of tempo, but little else. The score wasn't very punchy or catchy, let's say.

Honestly I preferred Jackman or someone from RC.


superultramegaa2018-09-30 14:07:30
While I haven't paid much attention to his action scores, Back To The Future, Stuart Little, and Polar Express prove to me Silvestri is capable of making amazing and iconic work. The problem is recently, he's kinda become part of the group of composers so desperate for melody, that they end up making little more than complex orchestral noise. I didn't even finish Ready Player One because I just couldn't grasp any of the themes, and frankly wasn't interested in doing so.


MrZimmerFan2018-09-30 14:56:08
And Predator, The Abyss or What Lies Beneath?

That are terrific scores by Silvestri

I really hope they release the documentary score and not only this song which sounds pretty by the books.


Mephariel2018-06-27 17:54:51
I don't think they will because I skimmed through the documentary and I don't think there is enough music in there to justify a release.


...2018-06-27 19:39:04
Is the music any good?

Max Potcats reply Replies: 0 || 2018-06-27 13:28:31
Maybe I deserve to die but I really don't like this music. It just sound to similar to all the "guitar / feel good" radio songs shit, and, seriously, do you ear something that sound like Zimmer in there? But it's nice to know that he scores the documentary.

Mephariel reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-27 03:25:17
Does Zimmer still have time to score another movie in 2018? It is highly unusual that he only has one film score in a year, but I can't see what it could be.

I believe Hans Zimmer is kind of taking a bit of a break from scoring. If I am not mistaken I think I heard him say that in his interviews.

Jack Afrogarrix 2018 reply Replies: 0 || 2018-06-26 02:47:08
Well, that not a 100% sure, but if he Release the score at interscope records with the original song with dan reynolds(Imagine Dragons). But we had to wait what happens.

Jack Afrogarrix 2018 reply Replies: 2 || 2018-06-23 02:59:50
Nice new song from hans zimmer & the frontman imagine Dragons Dan Reynolds. I got a question just to know if hans zimmer will make a score for this documental hbo movie including the song with dan Reynolds?


Mephariel2018-06-23 20:48:44
He scored the documentary. The question is, are they going to release the whole score.


Josiah2018-06-25 03:29:18
Something tells me they're not going to.
