Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.
I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.
Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.
For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsame

Couple of interesting things.

Williams in the film cuesheet seems to have been credited only for "his" cues but never for others' cues (even if they use either old Star Wars music or new JW Solo material) :

THE HAN SOLO THEME (JW)

This is what I could find. Some of the cues I couldn't find at all like Family Stories A, Gonna Be A Pilot or To Tatooine Pt 2 probably have all one thing in common : I guess they're 100% credited to JW.

That cuesheet matches in fact with the credits I posted above that come from JP's team.

Interestingly, the 2018 Album does credit Williams very specifically on every cue any of his material is used (The % come from the fact Powell & Mounsey are ASCAP, Williams, Willis & Sener are BMI) :

ADVENTURES OF HAN (HAN SOLO THEME)
JW 100%
MEET HAN
JP 28% JW 72%
CORELLIA CHASE
JP 50% JW BS 50%
SPACEPORT
JP 55% JW AW 45%
FLYING WITH CHEWIE
JP 48% JW AW 52%
TRAIN HEIST
JP 92% JW 8%
MARAUDERS ARRIVE
JP 55% JW BS 45%
CHICKEN IN THE POT
JP 100%
IS THIS SEAT TAKEN?
JP 77% JW 23%
L3 & MILLENNIUM FALCON
JP 86% JW 14%
LANDO’S CLOSET
JP 100%
MINE MISSION
JP 98% JW 2%
BREAK OUT
JP 78% JW 22%
THE GOOD GUY
JP PM 74% JW AW 26%
REMINISCENCE THERAPY
JP 30% JW 70%
INTO THE MAW
JP 47% JW BS 53%
SAVAREEN STAND OFF
JP 94% JW 6%
GOOD THING YOU WERE LISTENING
JP 100%
TESTING ALLEGIANCE
JP 51% JW AW 49%
DICE & ROLL
JP 65% JW 35%

It's not unusual to have different credits for an album VS the same music in the film, depends on the deal that was made.

Also, some incoherences here, like Willis credited for Lando's Closet in the cuesheet but not in the OST for the same track. But you can't take the cuesheet for absolute truth, additionals did a bit more than that, not necessarly credited, cause it's not as significative to program some percs on a track VS writing 90% of it ! :) Like Willis isn't officially credited for L3's Sacrifice (very end of Extra Deluxe Mine Mission) but has it on his website. Same for Batu with L3 & Falcon. So they had more to do than just what they are credited for... :)

Also, if you want a breakdown of the Deluxe VS 2018 OST :

THE ADVENTURES OF HAN => SUITE (NOT IN DELUXE)
MEET HAN => 1M1 MEET HAN
CORELLIA CHASE => 1M4-5 CORELLIA CHASE
SPACEPORT => 1M6-7 SPACEPORT
FLYING WITH CHEWIE => 2M13 CHEWIE UNTAMED

MARAUDERS ARRIVE => 2M15-16A-B-C DELUXE TRAIN HEIST (SECOND HALF) (EDITED) (ALT END)
CHICKEN IN THE POT => 3M18S CHICKEN IN THE POT (ALT VOX)
IS THIS SEAT TAKEN ? => 3M25 SABACC GAME
L3 & MILLENNIUM FALCON => 3M26 L3 & MILLENNIUM FALCON
LANDO'S CLOSET => 4M28 LANDO'S CLOSET
MINE MISSION => 4M30B-5M30C-31 EXTRA DELUXE MINE MISSION (FIRST HALF)
BREAK OUT => 4M30B-5M30C-31 EXTRA DELUXE MINE MISSION (SECOND HALF)
THE GOOD GUY => 6M34 SAVAREEN TENT + 6M36-37-38 QI'RA KNOWS A BIT MORE THAN THAT (EDITED) + 6M39-40 DOUBLE-DOUBLE CROSS (EDITED)
REMINISCENCE THERAPY => 5M32-33A-B-C KESSEL RUN IN LESS THAN 12 PARSECS (FIRST HALF)
INTO THE MAW => 5M32-33A-B-C KESSEL RUN IN LESS THAN 12 PARSECS (SECOND HALF)
SAVAREEN STAND-OFF => 6M35 ENFYS' STAND-OFF
GOOD THING YOU WERE LISTENING => 7M43-44-45 MAUL'S CALL – PARTING WAYS (EDITED) (ALT)
TESTING ALLEGIANCE => 6M41-42 DRYDEN'S LONG, LONG FIGHT (EDITED)

So if people are wondering if there's anything to keep from the 2018 album :

The Adventures Of Han, JW's suite.

Marauders Arrive has an alternate insert at the end (Deluxe Train Heist).

Chicken In The Pot has an alternate singer.

Good Thing You Were Listening is an alternate (Maul's Call - Parting Ways)


Scorefan2020-11-19 23:29:54
Thanks Hybrid


jjstarA1132020-11-20 16:26:56
I'm a little surprised that "The Adventures Of Han" was tossed aside here.


Edmund Meinerts2020-11-20 18:14:27
Rights issue. The rest of the score was recorded in London, but Williams recorded his suite in LA with a different orchestra, so it would have been prohibitively expensive to include it here and have to pay the royalties all over again.


mpolonest123 2020-11-20 18:43:44
Major props to Powell and co. for pushing to have this released. As good as the OST was, this Deluxe Edition really exposes how intelligently JP handled the new and old themes. Also have to love the source music, it completely fits with Williams’ eccentric source pieces. Only real gripe for me is the End Titles Suite, which feels more like a mish-mash of cues than an individual piece.


Edmund Meinerts2020-11-20 19:54:55
Yeah it's a bit that Powell seemed to be focusing a lot on that End Titles suite even though it's just an edit job. He hyped it so much that it got me half believing he had somehow recorded an all-new end credits suite that never ended up in the film, but no, it's just the edit job. Ah well, I'll just replace it with the Williams suite from the original album.

"Mimban Battle" is my pick of the new music. That Imperial March statement (followed by a cool choral statement of the Beckett/Gang theme) is so good. Powell really brings out how nasty and oppressive that theme can be, and coming right after the upbeat propaganda source cue the contrast is hilarious and extremely effective. Expectations vs reality.


jjstarA1132020-11-20 20:48:20
Edmund Meinerts: Ah, that's why.

mpolonest123: Yeah, Williams really set a gold standard with The Force Awakens' end credits suite which I hoped subsequent Star Wars films would follow, so this one is kind of underwhelming. But it's worth having on album anyway for having the proper fanfare ending and Han's theme at 1:13. (Powell's infatuation with sleigh bells really gives this score a holidays vibe!)

Dragon Deluxe was a neat addition (and the score book is a must-read), but this deluxe album is the glow-up I've been waiting for!!!
