Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell...
...and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.
love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.
M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.

This a truly great score by Zimmer, especially the last two tracks. Have a bit of a gander at the following as it will give you some insight into that awesome Cameroon Border Post track. In any case, I love this music.

Trevor Jones and temp tracking for Cameroon Border Post:
### EDITED ###

The nostalgic days when one would wonder what in Cameroon Border Post was actually done by HZ. I would argue most of it as the Variations is for the earlier part - though SJ did make a career out of music like this track. Bruce Fowler must have done the orchestral carnage in between.

The last half is bombastic HZ magic, though I wonder if Fuqua had Jones' Last of the Mohicans as temp track here.

Where in the blue crap, is the ACTUAL soundtrack. There are tons of music missing even from the expanded score, and the expanded score has fake music that is not on the actual movie. Where, oh were is the actual legit score. I see a bunch of music cues but nowhere to download it. I've been on the search for as long as the movie came out. Can anyone at all help??


Hybrid-Fan2014-08-29 09:31:41
with actual you mean the complete or the recording sessions? you can't buy them, as it isn't offered for buying.

Macejko reply Replies: 7 || 2014-01-07 16:00:57
I seriously think that "Sniper - Border Post" and "The Journey - Kopano Part III" cues are two of the very best Hans has ever composed (if it was him).


Mike2014-01-07 17:23:44
Thanks for pointing them out. They've improved my morning.


MacArthur2014-01-07 17:29:17

This one and Spirit.

My goodness, the end of Sniper - Border Post really is incredible. I can't believe it's been so long since I've listened to it!

What is this "Sniper-Border Post" track? I don't see anything by that name in the list above.


Mike2014-01-07 17:51:11
From the expanded score.

I just died and went to heaven. The whole reason I dug for the fake expanded score was for the infiltration music, to my disappointment. Now we wait and see for this tearjearking masterpiece to receive its complete score.

Anyone know the source/status of the expanded score? Is it genuine or a DVD rip? Its around 70 mins long.

Even worse than that, it's music not from the film...

Thank you

Ive looked at a couple and they seem genuine, i.e. actual music from the film.

If not, and I am wrong, why do people do this?!

Hi , everyone
Thanks Hanzi for this wonderful score. the "small piece for doumbek and strings" is the amazing!
but there are still some missing track (Movie DVD, time 0:18mn thru 0:20mn), could that be Kopano part IV! can anyone knows the title. Is there a more complete score. Thanks,

Track 9 is EPIC -
It's easily one of the most moving action pieces he's ever composed.
It's a shame that it was practically inaudible in the film due to all the sound effects...
