Soundtrack album from season 5 is out... that came out of nowhere@Macejko Someone leaks with a torrent website, but, I can't put the information on Jusid's score on this website, I just let you know about it. @Hybrid Soldier is correct too.holy crap! Sounds like Spielberg taking over Tobe Hooper on PoltergeistOut in NZ<br><br>https:/ / -motion-picture-soundtrack/1 490342758Paul: Where did you find Jusid´s score?<br>Hybrid: Really? Where did you hear that?
Snyder got Junkie in. He was absolutely displeased with what Noam Murro was doing so he took over directing and basically did the movie uncredited. He asked Junkie for a quick rescore...Oh snap, I found out about replaced by Federico Jusid's rejected score from 300 rise of an empire is available, I think Junkie XL with is better fit for this soundtrack.just saw No Time to Die trailer and the music sounds so much like it´s Junkie, or somebody just stole his drum sample librariesSo... Marvel Studios just released the trailer for Black Widow. I heard some faint rumors out there that Henry Jackman has been tapped to score this one. Hybrid, any validity to these reports, or is it still to early to tell?  :)The Hero theme is so simplistic that it'd be hard to somewhat forget if you hear it enough times. I always assumed the MoS Launch temp track from the Anti-Hero theme was supposed to be the villain motif, but having not seen the film doesn't give me a sense on how its utilized.<br><br>I think the Flash motif is pretty good as a "running" theme of sorts. And the titular JL theme is fine, if not really strong enough to carry a whole score (though I do like it appearing once the team is presumably fully formed). I haven't any other themes, even though I'm told there's others.
What sucks is the composition and orchestration is really good, but there's no memorable new themes! I can't tell you the difference between the Hero and Anti-Hero themes, and I don't think Steppenwolf even has a consistent motif. None that I can hear.I think WaterTower Music.I'm looking to choreograph a work to the sections of the soundtrack. Do you know who owns the copyright or who to contact for theatrical permission?It’s ashamed some Williams can be heard in this. I like Elfman but this was just him reusing old themes from the 80’s and reworking the Avengers theme for the entire score. Should have brought Junkie or Balfe or Giacchino.Jumanji: The Next Level by Jackman, is going to be released by Sony Classical
@Hybrid, Marc is still with RCP? I don´t hear from him anymoreDo I want to get this score, huh?no it wasn't includedDoes anybody know, is "The Rock" included in past show´s? I really need to know that or even possibility to hear that breathtaking theme, before I buy the ticket...Clearly the most wonderful thing would have been to get the whole Snyder vision, with Justice League Part 1 having Superman resurrected on the wrong side, and Part 2 ending with Batman's death. Plus lots of exciting and bold ideas.<br>But Snyder didn't shoot that because of WB's panic. So this Snyder cut was already a truncated, hybrid thing. However, I'm absolutely positive it was miles better than what Whedon did with it. There's a fanmade cut floating around, with less Whedon jokes, snippets from MoS added as flashbacks and the whole score replaced by HZ/JXL tracks from MoS, BvS, King Arthur, Mad Max, etc. These changes alone made the movie significantly better, especially some action scenes which still had plenty of Snyder material. It's tragic how Elfman's score and Whedon's reshoots removed any kind of suspense of excitement from that movie.<br><br>On another topic, I find it surprising to read that Suicide Squad tested better with Steven Price's score. I wonder how test audiences even managed to distinguish a score in that movie - undermixed and polluted by songs.

Finally had a chance to listen to this. It's a good score, and I have to say Zanelli did a REALLY good job painting with JNH's colors, so to speak. There is surprisingly not that much direct quotation of Maleficent's themes but the stylistic imitation of that score and of JNH's style is on point. The choral and woodwind writing is especially lovely (it's rare to hear this many woodwinds in an RCP score) and the whole thing feels very organic.

However, I also found it strangely forgettable. Lots of well-executed underscore cues but no lasting highlights really, and Zanelli's new themes don't exactly stick in my mind. The action cues kind of stop and start rather than establishing a consistent flow the way I like. So I'm not sure how much I will be revisiting this one in the future.

Just saw Maleficent 2. There is a lot more Newton Howard in the movoe than there is on album.
I actually can't really understand why they didn't include the reprise of The Christening (the dinner scene) & the finale in the movie.

Zanelli's score is wonderful and I love it very much. But would have loved this on album

After listening to the whole thing, I can say that, while not as great as Newton Howard, Zanelli did a great job in here, adapting the original themes as well as creating some new ones.

The first half of the album drags a bit, but the second half is really fantastic!

Mephariel2019-10-19 08:06:25
I only listened to the first couple of cues so it is too early to form an opinion comparing it to JNH but I disagree the first half drags. Maybe because I love tender themes.

MrZimmerFan2019-10-19 14:08:39
Great work of Zanelli, if is not as good like JNH's Maleficent, is a tremendous work, with a terrific writing and orchestrations, even the most tender parts are terrific.

mpolonest123 2019-10-19 16:54:26
Zanelli is no James Newton Howard, but he did a fantastic job with writing a large scale fantasy score. I’ll even say that, while I think the first Maleficent is stronger overall, I personally like the action writing better here. Also 2 little things I’ve noticed;

1. The new theme here sounds fairly similar to the Father/Son tune from KFP3
2. 2:20-3:30 sounds like it may have been temped from the finale of Fantastic Beasts. (Or maybe I’m just crazy lol)

Geoff Zanelli will be haunted by the specter of the PotC franchise until the day he dies, lol

Yeah lol one way or another... :P

I'm cautiously excited for this. Disappointed JNH didn't return but I trust Zanelli to do a good job here.

MrZimmerFan2019-10-10 11:29:45
I agree with you, Edmund, specially as a fan of JNH score

Andreas2019-10-17 16:19:21
Saw the film yesterday, the score relies heavy on JNH's themes and are used a lot throughout the film. Great choral work and a few standout action moments from Zanelli. For me this one felt similar as his approach to Dead Men Tell No Tales in case of using established themes.

mpolonest123 2019-10-17 16:22:55
JNH did such a great job with the first score, I honestly didn’t expect them to return to the same themes. Super happy to hear this!

MrZimmerFan2019-10-17 16:36:20
From what i hearing from the samples, it seems Zanelli make a great score.

JBSO992019-10-17 16:47:06
Just listened to the first track, "Mistress of Evil", and Zanelli kept some of the themes from James Newton Howard!

I'm so happy about this and if the rest score is like this, it could be one of the scores of the year.

Really excited about the full thing!

mpolonest123 2019-10-18 14:39:05
Really fantastic writing here, definitely taking inspiration from JNH’s style without trying to copy. And the adaptation of Maleficent’s “curse” theme from the first score in “The Phoenix” is definitely a highlight.
