and Zimmer was also involved in this movie as if it was in the previous ones?<br>======================<br><br>Hmm, I don't think Hans was involved here. He helped on TF4 and did some work on TF2 (to what extent I don't know) but that's pretty much it. Then again, Hans seems to be always around when it's a Michael Bay production.... :)and Zimmer was also involved in this movie as if it was in the previous ones?Really waiting for this soundtrack and hope Wallfisch will bring new vision into Hellboy universe.@Hybrid thanks a lot for your answers and your detective work!<br>Funny to see that Lorne does that much uncredited help (I know it’s only the tip of the iceberg, and that he isn’t the only one, as Bayhem said the rcp composers must help each other every time...)Please Hybrid. Make a forum with register members.
It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch.<br>.....................<br><br>Well, I'll be goddamned! I totally forgot about 'A Cure For Wellness'. I absolutely loved the movie and yes, the score is truly great and memorable, especially the main theme. Wallfisch knocked it out of the park with that one.<br><br>It seems that every time Gore Verbinski makes a horror movie we're treated with a great score. First it was 'The Ring' - which IMO is one of the best horror scores ever - and more recently 'A Cure For Wellness'. Both very immersive, creepy and atmospheric scores. Exactly the type of horror scores that I love.I think it's safe to say that the power anthems and the tracks that were very much an homage to the 90's MV/RC sound were done by Jablonsky. Balfe was never a "power anthem" type of composer. He's more like John Powell, while Steve is more like Hans. Steve has embraced the MV/RC sound, while Lorne is more "reserved".<br><br>That's why I'm extremely curious to hear Lorne's music for SIX UNDERGROUND. The 13 Hours score is great but it was very, for lack of a better word, contained. Which is understandable, considering the subject matter. But Six Underground is a huge balls-to-the-wall action adventure that takes place all over the world and Lorne really has a shot to go as wild and big as he can. I'm sure Bay would love that :)We'll see...When is the new website gonna be up? and will there be a forum with registered members?I remember seeing discussion several times on this forum about how Lorne would often reply to people on his social media accounts when they asked him for his credits in the scores he did additional music for. So does anyone have any credits that he or other composers have shared about this film?
This feature will be gone from the future website, AT LAST...I just saw the show last night in London and loved the visual integration  of the movies into the show .<br><br>Overall I reckon I preferred his show last time in London as he did not do interstellar which was really disappointing for me :( I also wish he did more tracks from the dark knight series as they were my faves at his last show.<br><br>In all the soundtracks the voters give very low note. You are a gang of unhappy people.Probably.Are there any other tracks in the album which were composed by Balfe? Just wondering...
I assumed you meant the forums themselves. I knew composer websites were a way to find their credits, I just didn't think to do it for this score yet for some reason.See the guys uotop listed next to jablonsky? click their names and go to their websites. You have to do the work. But there they are. Right on this site.^ Have to agree with you there. It’s not a terrible film by any means, but given the concept it is surprisingly bland. There were so many opportunities to do something cool with the dream concept, but it felt to me like they played it “safe”. And yes, the characters are extremely forgettable. I will give credit to Jackie Earl Haley, he does a pretty good job with the material he is given.<br><br>And I just remembered 2 excellent horror scores from the past few years: <br>It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch."Luke Richards did “Ospreys” and Gary Dworetsky did “Calling All Autobots”. You can find that out from this very site." <br><br>I've looked through this thread several times and I never saw that information, but I appreciate you filling me in! And yeah, Hybrid, it is kind of difficult for me to distinguish between Lorne and Steve's TF styles. They both kind of blend in since the style was established with their heavy collaboration in the first 2 films.<br>The music is good, definitely better than Amityville (which I never found scary or interesting). The overuse of the cello and ambient/atonal cues gets annoying at times, but unlike a lot of modern horror there is real substance here. A decent amount of themes (but not too many), some decent suspenseful ostinato bits, good use of children's choir, and good thematic development. I don't have any interest in Steve's ambient horror scores because I really dislike that type of music.<br><br>As for the remake it's really mixed for me. There are genuinely creepy visuals and ideas, but with often poor execution. My go-to example is there's a great dream sequence with "not-Johnny Depp" in the library with dream-like visuals such as Freddy turning around inhumanly quickly. But that final visual is accompanied by a jump-scare for no reason and completely kills the impact of it. If his turning was completely silent, it would have been much more terrifying. <br><br>Jackie Earle Haley did a really good job as Freddy, (especially in the alternate ending), and Rooney Mara executed the material she was given very well. But unfortunately the characters are bland, all fitting into the emo/hipster teenager stereotype and little else. It also doesn't help that much of the deleted and alternate scenes ended up being much more interesting than the final ones we were stuck with, (Hospital Opening, Dean's original death scenes, and Alternate Ending).

Epic score by Harry Gregson Williams.One of my favorites this year.

Iamtommie reply Replies: 3 || 2018-08-23 00:43:18
Gregson-Williams is scoring the live action Mulan.
Hope we'll get a chinese Narnia with maybe the theme from Goldsmith.


Mephariel2018-08-23 02:00:53
A Chinese version of Narnia + Kingdom of Heaven + Some of his animated scores.

I would be very happy.


LP2018-08-23 02:50:42
I'm HYPE for this!

This news has me WAY more excited than Zimmer and Wonder Woman. Lol.

What has happened to HGW?? :((

Back then in 1998, along with John Powell, we saw them both as promising talents, destined to be one of the best in term of crafting ABOVE-STANDARD-TO-MASTERPIECE music and melody.

And in early 2000, we saw a separation. Powell for the most part wisely chose the animation realm, while HGW chose live-action instead.

Both of them succeeded in delivering the job. Powell is at his strongest and i'm not forgeting HGW with his Kingdom of Heaven and Narnia!

Entering 2010, we saw a decline for both. A little one for Powell, as he would prepare himself for his first sabbatical. But before that, Powell has delivered a masterpiece in film score history with his HTTYD in 2010. In the same year, i would also like to not disregard HGW's Prince of Persia.

Going past 2010, but before 2014/2015, we saw them quite at the bottom. Powell was really pissed about film scoring, while HGW was not neccessarily at the bottom, but his spark started to fade.

Entering 2015, they both rose again. Powell was getting more and more advanced, but i think the same couldnt be said with HGW, as he just rose a bit ( i like his monkey kingdom score though).

Before we enter 2020, we see Powell's force really shone. He is more creative than ever, trying many things that he suits, getting gig that no one here would even dare to expect ( Star Wars ehem )

Powell, until now, still CONSISTENTLY crafts REALLY-GOOD TO-MASTERPIECE music and melody.

Now HGW,...
He still gets movies to write,small ones though, not so much blockbuster-adventury.

And that what makes him declining in the first place.

Powell's decision to tackle more on animations, gives him many great sandboxes to play, everytime, thus really mastering his skill. Smart!

While HGW's false decision to chose blockbuster live-action movies instead, makes him vulnerable to "decaying". And it looks like he is not that kind of person who would push harder to keep his spark, thus he has became one of the "generics". Sparkless.

But still, Andrew Lockington has managed to take that title faster than HGW

-----------------

Now The MEG:

For every track i played, i always wished for that unique 90s MV power anthem to really pop, but unfortunately i couldnt find one. And dont get me started on the action music.( But yes, i hear some decent themes buried here and there. And a rather generic genre music in "A New World".)

And i skimmed through last tracks, prepared to end this as another disappointment for HGW, i found a nice power anthem being displayed in "To Our Friends" (itself can also be regarded as variation of his Prometheus theme), but only the first half, sadly. :(

Another disappointment for HGW.

----

Even when he was given a good sandbox such as this, he couldnt really turn his spark on again. He couldnt find the word "fun" in his job anymore. (And Early Man could also be another good example for this issue)

Sad for HGW.

I think you mistake The Meg with The Equalizer 2

IMO


Ro2018-08-04 21:47:35
I agree that HGW doesn't seem to pour much enthusiasm into his works lately but quite frankly I don't think the projects themselves were calling for something special either. To me, Martian was proof enough that HGW's still got it cracking. He just needs the right gig. I see the live action adaption of Mulan is being helmed by the director of Zookeeper's Wife which he previously scored. That's about the right sort of stuff to get his engines lit.


Olive2018-08-05 01:10:45
Probably family. HGW has had three children in the last decade.


Meta2018-08-05 04:26:20
Yep. I stopped listening to Powell after Bourne Ultimatum/Hancock years, then picked him up again for Star Wars. Big difference, cuz i found his other works to be lackluster for me.

HGW? Oh Lordy....Man On Fire/Domino for me was his final era to shine. Then he just went downhill...Equalizer seemed to bring back that HGW I loved since Man on Fire, but Equalizer 2 sounds like he phoned it in. Meg? It sounds like he was more interested in doing this score than EQ2, and that's not even sayinfg much because this score is vanilla.


Edmund Meinerts2018-08-05 12:19:15
You're missing a lot of really great music in those intervening 10 years of Powell's career, Meta...HTTYD is anything but lackluster!

A enjoyable score actually. Wish it has a main theme rather than just melodic undertones. But definitely has some great action scoring near the end of the score.

I really like this score which Gregson-Williams wrote.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 10:06:35
One of the most enjoyable scores of this year.

Harry Gregson-Williams in his top noch form (ok, is not Sinbad, right?), but the two main themes and the fun with the action and more epic (the beautiful A New World, for example) or the more action packed tracks like the terrific Jonas vs Meg (the brass writing is terrific) or Beach Attack (that chinese percussion are epic), also the main theme for the human characters, gave a sense of adventure i thought never listen again.
