Eh, Shore is a smart composer. He could make it work. I guess whether that's what studios think audiences want is another question entirely...Is it me or are none of the soundtracks on the website showing the sample tracks that you could listen to anymore?Have you heard that Henry Jackman will composing his music for the upcoming 2019 picture called Pokemon: Detective Pikachu?  I wonder what the film soundtrack would sound like.  Hmm...I think that Howard´s style of music doesn´t really fit to the post apocalyptic genreFor a Peter Jackson production I was expecting Howard Shore.
I listened to the score and is one of the most entertaining scores of this year. It's great to see the main theme return but there are a lot of new elements to enjoy and discover here. There were parts that kind of reminded me of Incredibles 2, like the begining of Shank. And tracks like Vanellope's March or Big Strong Man In Need of Rescue are just pure fun.<br><br>Really great score!I was this tracklist for a 3rd cd floating around, is this legit ?<br><br><br>Disc 1  <br>1.

Frozen NightAbout his studio at RCP, is it rental or he owns the stuff? What happens to the gear when he is not around?That is probably the fairest thing anyone on this website will say about Clemmensen. :P@Anonymous<br><br>Christian Clemmensen believes that Hans Zimmer found his definitive voice back in the 1990s with scores such as Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man, Crimson Tide, and Lion King. However, he has in reviews of later scores compared Zimmer's overly obvious chord progressions and masculinity with what the "rock ballad" did to rock-n'roll music of the '70s. To him, it's overly powerful, unsubtle, and aggressive music that appeals to the gut more than the heart or the mind. Some of Zimmer's most popular scores such as Gladiator, Pirates, and The Dark Knight he has given middling reviews for because the general sound is derivative from his earlier works, not colorful, and not creative. He also accuses Zimmer of starting a trend with overly-recycled, bombastic, masculine action music that's big on density and power and low on subtlety and personality. <br><br>I can definitely see where he's coming from, one cannot deny the similarities between Crimson Tide, Lion King, Gladiator, Pirates, Dark Knight and so forth. One also cannot deny that scores such as Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 qualify more as sound design than actual symphonic music (mostly). However, if he had his way, every film score would be shamelessly optimistic and flighty, all major chords (and occasionally alternating off-key), with prominent woodwinds and metallic percussion. He definitely knows what he's talking about, but he has an ideal image for film music in mind, and that very much comes through in his Zimmer reviews, some of which I think deserve much more credit than he offered (Pirates 3, Da Vinci Code, and Gladiator come to mind).
a more orchestral fury roadTom is gonna score Mortal Engines<br>What kind of sound do you expect?He has a studio at RCP but mostly work from his own home studio. His business is "Sacred Tiger Music."<br>Does Henry actually work for HZ at RCP or does he have his own film score company now like HGW?Why filmtracks always behave very Aggressive about hans zimmer and always trys to make his scores worthless ??!! Its odd for me
Aw Hell...<br><br>I guess it never did freeze over.Sorry, I should've been more specific. This is a comment I had originally posted on the Filmtracks forum, NOT from a Christian Clemmensen review. My bad.Referring to the previous comment (how did it not reply to the the previous message?)That's not the actual review. The length is a pretty big giveaway. Also, I'm fairly certain he's still given some RCP efforts some good scores.WOW....color me impressed at Filmtracks. I thought that site was anti-Zimmer in all aspects far, wide, near and dear.

Very moving letter by James L. Brooks. It seems like Hans is the nicest guy on earth.
The score is astonishing. No idea why is overlooked.

Btw, why does Heitor Pereira only get an "additional arrangements" credit when he got an entire track solely credited to him. Don't want to be nitpicking but one should give credit where it is due.

This is in my top ten scores of Hans. Its absolutely beautiful.

This is one of my favorite Zimmer's scores. It is very sublime and moody, constantly at the "low level", and it can fit into many things. It's one of those scores that you have to listen through a couple of times to be able to understand it.

It's definitely a five star score for me. I don't know how Hans did it, but he perfectly captured the emotions of an immigrant living in the US. There's sadness and timidness at times, but you can also hear nobility and sincerity. Personally, it's one of the best scores Hans has done.

Spanglish is one of my favorite movies/scores. I think both deserve more attention. This is not just a "funny comedy".

The music is very beautiful and emotional, but not too sentimental... it supports the story very well. Especially the beach scene is wonderful. I like the piano part. (...but I'm just wondering, who played the piano? All the names of the orchestra member and soloist are listed on the album, except pianist...)

The other day I saw this film again, and I was surprised there are so many music not in the album. Most of them are very short cues or another arrangement of the released stuff, but I think some of them are very beautiful and deserve official release. They should have released them instead of that horrible song at the end! :(

Anyway, I'm looking forward to next collaboration of James L. Brooks & Hans Zimmer! :)

Hans Zimmer is definitly the best!

Hey!!!! Cuando escuché la música pude sentir la diferencia de que no se trataba del clásico ritmo español... aquí se trata de un ritmo mexicano... Señor Hans, yo lo admiro por el ritmo etnico que siempre logra componer para el contexto del film... espero que haya escuchado música marichi... en especial, tiene un buen guitarrista Heitor...

A very good small gem for anybody loving Spanish and romantic music. Zimmer should do more of these
