Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.
A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :p
Hi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention. Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention. Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comThat's the 'Album Version' of Time To Suit UpI'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up. <br><br>It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?Cheers mate
I agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)

So if RGW is consistently doing these films...and Hans is back for Wonder Woman...can we assume Elfman's Justice League was just a blip on the DC radar?


Hari Haran2018-11-27 21:09:39
That is exactly what that was. A minor, albeit very irritating accident.

Things are back on track, though. :)


Knight2018-11-27 21:18:54
I wonder who will be the composers for all these spinoff films ex. Birds of Prey, The Batman, Flash etc as apparently Hildur Gudnadottir is scoring the Joker film. So maybe the RCP hold on the DC films is weakening :(


Mephariel2018-11-28 00:39:29
I think with the spinoff films, and the detachment from the DCEU, it totally make sense to move away from RCP because directors will have more of a say how they want those films to look and sound like, so they probably will hand pick composers more in line with their own vision rather than just following the train.

That is not a bad thing at all.


Meta2018-11-28 02:18:42
I second this. I think DC should keep things on the RCP plane to stay relevant and consistent. I say this because Zimmer seems to be falling by the wayside in terms of popularity....Hopefully he comes back to it.


Randy Watson2018-11-28 13:24:57
Well, it was nice while it lasted. Back to the One Sound Fits All approach I guess.

Curious which temp track RGW will ripp off this time :)


Mephariel2018-11-28 16:48:34
Zimmer will have Dark Phoenix, The Lion King, Wonder Woman 1984, and Top Gun: Maverick in the next 2 years. I wouldn't worry about Zimmer falling to the wayside.


Edmund Meinerts2018-11-28 18:33:16
Any "wayside falling" by Zimmer of late has largely been by his own choice, due to spending so much time touring. The 2015-2018 period has had some of the lowest activity of Zimmer's career IMO, with a lot of the scores he's involved in being highly collaborative (even moreso than usual), rather minor works, or both. I'd say the only Zimmer scores to come out in that period that you could call significant are Batman v Superman, Dunkirk, and maaaaybe Chappie (although that one has a lot of Mazzaro/Andrew K involvement).


Mephariel2018-11-28 19:15:33
You can pretty much tell which project he was highly involved in by his interviews. I think he did a lot of Dunkirk and Blue Planet II, and was somewhat involved in Hidden Figures, Batman v Superman, and Inferno, and only marginally involved in Blade Runner 2049, The Boss Baby, and Planet Earth II.


Hari Haran2018-11-28 19:46:50
And KFP 3 and Inferno too, Edmund.


Hybrid Soldier2018-11-28 21:06:10
"Somewhat" involved with BvS ???????

Every single melody in that film was written by him...


Mephariel2018-11-28 23:47:54
Hybrid, that is why you need to create a forum so we can have an edit button :).


Edmund Meinerts2018-11-29 09:50:13
Inferno is in the same category as Charlie for me, feels like Mazzaro/AK did a lot of the grunt work, and KFP3 is one of the collaborative scores I mentioned with only a few Zimmer cues.


Edmund Meinerts2018-11-29 09:50:58
*Chappie, not Charlie. What was that about an edit button? :p


Anonymous2018-12-02 00:39:27
ok RGW has written some of his best stuff Hacksaw Ridge was one of the best. wonder woman was really good Aquaman I am curious to see what he did with I'm sure It will be good and he doesn't rip off other stuff Hacksaw Ridge was a prime example very fresh and enjoyable.


Hari Haran2018-12-04 18:31:04

Excuse me, I'll be right back, I just have to finish laughing my ass off for every idiot on this thread and outside of it who confidently thought otherwise. XD

HIGH QUALITY H2O! Now with ELECTROLYTES!

Waterboy is the prequel to Aquaman.

Got to hear this the other day and it is phenomenal. Definitely more electronics than I was expecting (in a good way). It’s got a great blend of Orchestra, electronics and electric guitars throughout. There’s even a reoccurring riff in it that reminds me of Ramin’s Clash of the Titans. Closest thing I can compare it to is Brian Tyler’s Power Rangers score, but with a much beefier Zimmer sound.


Paul2018-11-29 19:32:36
Nice! Can't wait to hear it.

George reply Replies: 0 || 2018-11-27 19:50:18
Definitely excited for this. It’s been a down year for me in terms of RCP scores (Fallout and Solo being the big highlights for me) so hopefully this one turns out well.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 0 || 2018-11-27 19:17:12
Going off of James Wan’s comments it seems like the film will have more of a “swashbuckling” tone. Hopefully the music will be more adventurous in style (while still fitting in the established DCEU style of course).

RGW is a solid composer though, so I’m not worried.

Mephariel reply Replies: 0 || 2018-11-27 18:58:58
Excited about this one.
