Wait wait wait Nolan's movie for Hans is not confirmed... Far from it...This is also releasing in 2020. How many movies are up for release now from 2019-2020, Lion King, Dark Phoenix, Wonder Woman 2, Top Gun - Maverick, SpongeBob, Nolan's movie, this, and that BBC show. We are gonna get so much stuff. I am very excited.YES!!!!!<br><br>So happy that Villeneuve is directing and Zimmer is attached to score. While I know itís unlikely I hope this score is more than just sound design, there is so much opportunity here to write some kickass music.Fuck Yeah!!!Hans is scoring Denis Villeneuve's 'Dune'.<br><br>The movie will be released in 2020 with an all star cast. It's gonna  be a busy 2 years for Zimmer. Hope we'll get some new great scores like in the older days or inventive scores that are awesome!!
The stuff that didn't really do it in HZ Live for me were the "rockified" versions of No time For Caution and the Moody Bruce TDKR suite. Making those pieces sound like they did weakened their power, IMO. They were too guitar-and-drums heavy and I just preferred the originals. Otherwise, HZ Live was pretty good. There was some hyperbole in my comment about putting it to shame. But overall I definitely would rather have The World of Hans Zimmer approach.Because China.If it's an unofficial release, the order really doesn't matter. :PSo, is it like the guy says? Is that the order?I'm not sure, did you call the Thin Red Line live arrangement "noise"?? That's probably my favourite thing from this whole concert, such a massive improvement on the original version, it's incredibly immersive and it reaches levels of power and intensity words couldn't describe.<br><br>As Mephariel says, TWOHZ is a straightforward rendition of pieces we know, with little modification, while HZL is a reworking of the music as Hans himself thinks is best. Both have their charm and their use.<br><br>And after all that's why we like Hans in the first place: he doesn't do anything like anyone. He proved it with his music throughout his career, and he proved it again with his shows :-)
why not bring that show to China?As the user in the Youtube says, is an unofficial release.Because, there's an image (album cover) that says that a deluxe version exists, featuring 16 bonus tracks, extended versions and tracks that did not came out on the official OST release, so, Which are them? Does anybody know?<br>What about the BONUS TRACKS? Which are them? And their listing?<br>in my opionion, alot of tracks in Hans Zimmer Live In Prague are just weak arrangements. some of them turn actually just into noise. Crimson Tide/160BPM; The Thin Red Line; Inception and Interstellar. also the soloists were often just a waste. they were playing, the camera was on them, but you couldnt hear them. but i have to say, Gladiator with Czarina Russell was amazing, much better than with Lisa Gerrard. in the end, i also prefer TWOHZ, because it represents his music much better. also the program is more varied.
Still no news :-/<br><br>I wonder if the bonus material RGW promised somehow got delayed.To be fair, Hans Zimmer Live has its charms. Some of the soloist performances are truly spectacular, like Guo's Pirate sequence. Also, HZL presented Zimmer's music in ways we haven't seen or heard before. It is also a celebration of electronic music, something TWOHZ isn't. So DS is right that both programs compliment each other.I really donít get the comparisons, they are both two completely different things. I love HZ Live simply because itís a cool, rock spin on Zimmerís music. This, on the other hand, is a more traditional approach that sounds amazing and closer to the music as heard in film. For me personally neither are better or worse, I actually think they both work extremely well.<br><br>My only complaint: still no live performance of ďToo Many Notes, Not Enough RestsĒ  ;)The program has nothing to do with it... This is much closer to the music that Zimmer actually wrote for the movies. HZ live is some rock show that doesn't have much to do with the original scores and I just think this is way better! I am a big zimmer fan, but I didn't go to HZ live because I just couldn't stand the arrangements and performances of that tour.TWOHZ doesn't put anything to shame. If it exists, it's basically because 'Hans Zimmer Live' came before, and it got massively successful, so they created this alternate program. Now we're maybe feeling this whole program is better, but isn't it perhaps because by now we're so used to the HZL program? I've known it since 2014, I've seen it 3 times live, a couple of times on blu-ray and Netflix, and listened to the album many, many times. So of course now TWOHZ has a "fresher" feeling. I think if TWOHZ came before, first of all it probably wouldn't have been that successful... and people would be complaining about the lack of Driving Miss Daisy, True Romance, Man Of Steel, The Thin Red Line, Interstellar...  <br><br>There isn't room for everything in one concert, so it's great to have 2 different programs without too much overlap. That's it :)

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!


Brent2018-08-23 05:46:15
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.


MrZimmerFan2018-08-04 17:58:45
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.
