It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.<br>=======================<br><br><br>Well said! <br><br>Agreed.I've demanded for it to be removed a long time ago... Maybe in 10 years, who knows...RIP to a legend....<br><br>Just rewatched Coach Carter a few weeks back. It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.Listening to Rabin's two powerful "basketball scores" - this one and Glory Road. In memory of the great Kobe! RIP, legend!Honestly man, I never understood this site's ratings either.
For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessions
I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know

Strange and unexpected collection of additional guys for this score, Jeff Morrow who I associate with Christophe Beck rather than RC and then Kazuma Jinnouchi?! What happened to Jackman's regular dudes like Alex Belcher, Halli Cauthery etc?


Hybrid Soldier2019-07-17 12:30:51
Jeff & Alex & Evan Goldman are regular Jackman team now. Alex scored a bunch of projects, hence his absence here.

Then you have Halli, Anthony Willis or Mounsey doing all sorts of things when available.

Gavin Greenaway is the conductor

Kazuma Jinnouchi helped Jackman, that's a pleasant surprise!


Mephariel2019-07-17 05:47:48
Yep. Jinnouchi is a pretty talented composer.


ThePhantasm2019-07-17 08:06:36
He did a great job with Halo

Composer credits, for those interested.


mpolonest123 2019-07-16 19:25:25
Thanks Hybrid. It’s cool to see that Jackman worked solo on the strongest cues in the score. I wonder why the end credits piece was not included on the album though.


DT-20172019-07-16 23:17:16
Probably because it includes the OG Pokemon theme.

DT-2017 reply Replies: 0 || 2019-05-16 23:03:24
This is an okay score. Nothing super spectacular, but it fits the movie very well. The only issue I really took is that the end credits arrangement of the Pokemon video game theme is absent from the CD - I would wager quite a few people bought the CD just for that only to be disappointed. For me, it would have ended the CD perfectly.

Anybody know why it was left off? Something Nintendo told them 'no' on?

As someone who grew up with Pokémon as a kid, I am super pumped to see how Jackman approaches this. Seeing how the marketing is skewing to 80’s music (and the visuals have that neon color scheme to match the noir tone) I wonder if this will be either be fully orchestral or synthesizered.


mpolonest123 2019-04-19 16:08:08
And if he will incorporate any music from the show/games....


PikaPika2019-04-19 17:31:04
.....synthesizered


mpolonest123 2019-05-03 07:15:24
So Jackman did end up leaning heavily on the synths for this one.

While there are no standout themes here, I do think it’s a fun little score overall. “Ryme City” particularly sticks out to me as a great throwback type cue.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-06 14:34:04
There is a plenty of interesting synths here, but mostly it's ok.

Far for other works like Kingsman or Jumanji.


mpolonest123 2019-05-06 15:07:23
Jackman is one of those composers who I generally like, but not love. The only scores that he has done that have “wowed” me are both Kingsmans and to a lesser extent; Winter Soldier. (Birth of a Nation is also pretty solid)

Outside of those, most of his music ranges from fun to serviceable imo. He is talented for sure, but I’m still waiting for something else that blows me away.


JBSO992019-05-06 19:37:49
In my opinion, his Kingsman scores, Kick-Ass and his Wreck-It Ralph scores are the few great things I've heard from him, the rest being from good to generic.

I think he really has talent, but not many times is able to show it properly.

And I also think he works better in collaboration scores (like the ones with Matthew Margeson or his contributions to scores like At World's End)


anon2019-05-07 00:10:43
It's amazing how much better everyone magically sounds when working on a Zimmer score ;-).


mpolonest123 2019-05-07 01:21:52
^^ Wreck-it-Ralph, Jumanji, Predator, etc. are all good examples of scores that are enjoyable enough, but never quite impressed me on the same level as some of his peers. To his credit though, Jackman does have a fairly distinctive voice, with a slight hint of Silvestri.

I did forget to mention one of my faves from him, “First Class”.


MrZimmerFan2019-05-07 11:15:21
Jumanji and The Predator, at least for me, are from his best works.

Even First Class, with The Last Stand, my favs for X-Men

According to a friend that listens to EVERYTHING, its a nothingburger.


George2019-05-02 21:59:34
Bummer, I was sorta looking forward to this one. I’ll still give it a listen, but I was hoping this would be another Jackman hit.


T-Mann0362019-05-03 01:39:00
Actually, it's a somethingburger. Most of the tracks have some OK, but very humorous. And one track had me in the feels. Overall, it's an above average soundtrack.
