Snyder confirmed that his cut of the film is essentially done, itís just up to WB to release it."For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views."<br><br>Eh, by that definition The Imperial March would also be a power anthem, and I'd question that (to put it lightly). I don't think popularity has much to do with a definition of a type of music really. Rather I'd say a power anthem is a bold, muscular, relatively simple and often rock/pop-influenced theme that builds up and gets bigger and bigger over time, the prototype being Hans Zimmer's theme from Crimson Tide. And Balfe has written plenty of them. Whether they're good or not is something that can be debated, but e.g. the opening track of PR:U definitely fits the criteria of a power anthem for me.Power Anthems!!!!!! Is this the 1980s again!!!im the first to love a great tune but we are in another decade now.<br><br>Talking of tunes , Balfes best is still Ohís Theme from Home.Balfe writes epic themes constantly<br>==================<br><br>Epic themes, yes.<br><br>Actual power anthems on par with Now We Are Free and My Name is Lincoln......No. In my opinion.but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion<br>=============<br><br>My point as well.
Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem<br>=============<br><br>Clearly we have a different understanding of what a "power anthem" is. For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views.<br><br>None of the tracks in the Hurricane Heist score can compare to these power anthems. None. Same goes for 12 Strong, PacRim 2 and (lol) Lego Batman. Only 13 Hours comes close. And that's because Michael Bay is the type of director who loves and demands power anthems (and thank God for that). It's no wonder that some of the most famous power anthems come from his movies...<br><br>I'm not saying all of that to undermine Balfe. It's just my personal observation.Balfe writes epic themes constantly.Assassins Creed,Beyond Two Souls,Geostorm are just some examples.Track 1 of PR: U is a power anthem, Brothers from Hurricane Heist is a power anthem, 12 Strong is a bit iffy as a lot of them aren't full anthems and more like action cues that go on for a bit. But I would disagree on the bad themes, I really enjoy the Brothers theme from HH (best moments in the score is when it crops up) and the main theme from PR: U, but aside from that they're not his best works.Hope you keep the staff ratings though, its useful for me as a lot of the people here have similar musical tastes to me and it helps to find ones that I might like.i wouldn't say, that Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist and 12 Strong have power anthems. all 3 don't have even good themes. they are ok and they are the best part in every score, but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion.
Lorne is not a power anthem guy? What are you talking about? Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem. To name a few: MI: Fallout, Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist, 12 Strong, Lego Batman and Duck Shoot from The Crown.That's not what I meant. Just curious if anyone on the site has any new credits from asking the additional composers about this film.Thank Christ lol. That voting booth was good for absolutely nothing.Shazam is going to be released, by WaterTowerInfo*
no infi on shazam still huhand 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 itís only the tip of the iceberg, and that he isnít the only one, as Bayhem said the rcp composers must help each other every time...)

What do you guys think Bens score for shazam will sound like? Is he going for that old school fun sound, kinda like Bill Contis Masters of the universe score or is he gonna do the Hans Zimmer big epic score?? I think most likely Hans but who know, for some reason when i put on the main theme for Maters of the universe it fits this movie.


Edmund Meinerts2019-02-13 11:05:27
Hmm...Hans Zimmer or Bill Conti...if I'm a studio exec in Hollywood anno 2019, which of those two do I put on the temp track???


Ro2019-02-13 13:07:35
Factor out "doom and gloom", and "atmospheric sound design" from the palette and just about anything would be great. If the composer had genuine fun along the ride, it'll sound even better.

A beautiful score by Wallfisch with some enjoyable action writing, will likely be one of the highlights for me this year. I am super excited to see what he will bring to the table for Shazam
