About his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?
He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for meAw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.
Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.Copied from Filmtracks:<br><br>Excellent score - a little slow in the middle third*, but some really stirring fantasy-adventure elsewhere. "The Internet" is Cue of the Year material. Although it's odd how little synth there is here, particularly in the finale, where the orchestra seems to completely take over; this isn't too bad of a thing because Jackman's orchestral skills are downright breathtaking at times. The references to other Disney scores/musicals (yes, including Star Wars) left a big dumb grin on my face.<br><br>*I get the sense that this movie might be too long (1 hour and 52 minutes).No you're not. I think Jackman has made some great score over the last through years.<br>And I think this is one of them. Both tracks with or without electronics
So I guess I'm the only one who likes less-electronic-Henry?Henry has been removing electronics for 4 years now...Listen to<br><br>A Big Strong Man In Need Of Rescuing.<br><br>That whole track is a damn easter eggI haven't seen the movie yet but I like the score more with each listen. Not a classic Zimmer by any means but still an enjoyable listen at its short running time. Looking forward to the movie as well.This is me or Henry Jackman removed the electronics this year it could be affect to the predator score because I was thinking about the predator score affect him to remove electronics and turned serious & dramatic. That's weird when Henry Jackman used a lot electronics & fun since 2009 to 2017 with his scores.

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.
