Just 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.Are you going to visit Russia?!) We are waiting for very much!)He posted it before this site added the tracklist.
Did you just copied and paste the tracklist above? lmaoThe reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.
Are there any more tour dates planned?Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.

This is somewhat random, but can someone define for me what exactly qualifies as a power theme/anthem in reference to film scores? That term is used all the time to define Hans' music and I have a vague idea of what it means, but I'd like to know exactly what it refers to.


Mephariel2018-06-25 00:22:24
Maybe I am wrong about this, but a power anthem is a cue that revolves around a soaring, powerful melody that repeats itself throughout composition to represent a character, a team, or a specific sequence in the movie. Power anthems usually have minimal focus on developing complex B-sections, transition elements, and deep narratives.

I think the best example is Jablonsky's "Arrival to Earth" in Transformers. My personal favorite is "Show Me Your Firetruck" in Zimmer's Backdraft.


superultramegaa2018-06-25 00:35:25
Wait, that describes many film score leitmotifs doesn't it? Is it just used to describe Zimmer-type of music simply because he uses them more often, or are his main themes almost always power anthems?


Mephariel2018-06-25 22:26:00
It is definitely not just Zimmer. A lot of composers in RCP and elsewhere (Brian Tyler) has done power anthems.

With Zimmer, I don't think most of his main themes are power anthems. It is just that his power anthems are popular and RCP is known for creating them extensively.

Hybrid, do you know which cues that match the long OST tracks? and is there any music on the OST that isn't on the complete?

Also, is the end credits cue just a repetition of music from the film?

Yeah the EC is a montage of cues (mostly Caravan Travels), but it's interesting for the film version of Tell Me Now...

Thanks a lot for this detailed breakdown! It seems to me that the mix of the OST and the complete is a bit different too, with more close microphones in the mix!

What tracks did Nick Glennie-Smith and Rupert Gregson-Williams write? "Into the Battle" is credited to Trevor Morris on his website. "Saxon's Plan," "Woad's Trap," and "Face to Face Speech" sound like NG-S.

Actually, the orchestra hired to recorded the score is 'The London Philharmonic Orchestra'.

Although the OST definitely had the best moments of the score, this one also has some great cues like "Woads Trap", "Face to Face Speech", "Into The Battle" and "Woads Charge". A winner, anyway ;-)

This 3CD version you're talking about is a total fake. It doesn't contain any more real music at all. The extra music are just, like you say yourself, End Credits (ripped from the DVD, and with the exception of a slightly different variation of the song 'Tell Me Now' it's just a suite of the music used in the film), the trailer music (which again, like I've said before in other posts, have nothing really to do with the film or the score, it's simply just used in the trailer), the "Song Of The Excile" (see my post(s) below), and some 'alternates', which is just some fan made edits of the original cues !

The name of the song is Sorrow and it is sing by Moya Brennan and the actress who played the role.

Per reply Replies: 0 || 2007-07-07 00:00:00
No, the name of the song is "Song Of The Excile", written by Caitlin Matthews.

In the film, it also have been mixed together with music from "Amergin's Invocation" composed by Lisa Gerrard & Patrick Cassidy. With 'vocals' by Lisa Gerrard. (Not Moya Brennan).

But I'm not sure of who sings the lyrics of the "Song Of The Excile" in the film...
