Same here. The cue I want the most is ďWe Strike FirstĒ.@Edmund<br>I canít agree enough. These remakes suffer from the issue of being inferior to the original source material, mainly because they rely so heavily on copying the originals so heavily. Iím not necessarily against Disney updating their classics if they are willing to do new takes on the material. Take Jungle Book for example; they were able to do something fresh with the concept while keeping elements of the animated film. Even Maleficent, which Iím not crazy about, tried something new. <br><br>Another BIG issue Iíve noticed is the fact that they lean towards hiring actors who cannot sing, or at least cannot sing on the level required. Emma Watson, Will Smith, Chiwetel Ejiofor, etc.Best shot <br>It wasnt meant to be<br>Home invasion<br>Ahab waves (0:39-end)<br>Permission to come aboard?<br>Ask the sea<br>Ahab waves (0:00-0:38)<br>Saving pops<br>Swimming lessons<br>Kingdom of atlantis<br>Legend of atlan<br>Ring of fire<br>What does that even mean?<br>Ocean to ocean<br>Obligation<br>Dunes<br>Map in a bottle<br>Black manta<br>Mera montage<br>Between land and sea<br>Trench engaged<br>What could be greater than a king?<br>Suited and booted<br>He commands the sea<br>Reunited<br>Everything i need<br><br>"Arthur" and "Atlantean Soldiers" are probably suitesJust want shrike death cue!I feel as though Menken did a bit more to differentiate his 2017 Beauty and the Beast from the 1991 one. The major pieces like "Prologue" and "Transformation" were left relatively intact but otherwise the rewrite was a bit more substantial than what Zimmer and crew did here. Compare the final battle music from the original (which consists to a large degree of upbeat instrumental versions of "Be Our Guest") to the remake (which is largely serious, straightforward orchestral action music). I haven't heard his new Aladdin so I'm not sure what the old:new ratio was there.<br><br>I'm not necessarily complaining, this is basically what I expected the score would be from the moment it was announced. The problem lies deeper, with the entire premise of these pointless remakes that allow very little wiggle room for freshness or creativity. Of course, I have no doubt this movie will make north of a billion dollars and give the Disney execs further license to print money. Maybe by the time they've remade every single film in their vault enough time will have passed that they can just start from the beginning again and nobody need ever be subject to the indignity of an original story ever again.
It's a variation of the theme Anthem from the first Top Gun film by Harold Faltermeyer.whats the name of the song being played in this trailer?<br>is it available onlineThis is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>
It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.Thanks, that's great!!<br><br>Hooe those sessions will be here soon. Still a lot of music music. Would have liked it better if those remixes, were actually score tracksMera Montage is the big rock vocal cue used during the Sicily Battle & the Wine scene.<br><br>Home Invasion the opening soldiers barging in to capture Atlanna, as well as a part of the Black Manta / Orm negotiation scene.<br><br>Saving Pops is... the saving pops scene...<br><br>Ahab Wave is the tsunami scene + and when Aquaman arrives to the sub to fight Manta's gang.<br><br>Ask the Sea is when Aquaman refuses to help Manta's dad.<br><br>Olbigation is the soft piece in the plane when Aquaman & Mera talk.<br><br>Dunes is the comedic Dunes slide scene...I just want the Sicily Battle music!Having seen it I can say visually it is incredible, definitely a work of art on that level. What sets it back (for me personally) is the lack of a strong emotional core. The choice to make the animals realistic looks great, but doesnít have the same range that the hand drawn version had in terms of giving the animals the facial characteristics like the original. Soulless might be kind of harsh, but I didnít feel anything throughout. Also doing a shot-for-shot remake probably wasnít the best approach. <br><br>Musically though; this definitely was a great reminder as to why the original score is still a classic. Like everyone has said, itís a perfect companion piece that actually fixes some minor flaws and fleshes out some ideas much better. Some important cues missing though.
ďAsk The SeaĒ <br>Oh please be the cue I want...Deluxe edition releases tomorrow<br>http :// filmmusicreporter .com /2019/07/18/aquaman-deluxe-edition-soundtrack-to-be-released /Didn't Menken do much the same with Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast? I think the only ones who have been the most original with the scores to these remakes have been Danny Elfman and John Debney.<br><br>My personal view is this serves as a great compliment to the 1994 soundtrack, not an outright replacement. If you combined the two you'd get quite the meaty soundtrack.<br><br>As for the film itself, I highly doubt it will be as 'great' as the original, but that's not to say that it deserves the slating critics have given it either. I personally can't say - I haven't seen it yet.Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.I have to agree. It's a stellar score and I love it, but it was written 25 years ago, nevertheless.<br>Still, credit where credit's due, as you mentioned, the new 'Stampede' is a beast of a track, really added to the original, as well as the 'Battle' cue, awesome stuff for sure. <br>Haven't seen the movie yet, but I really hope it measures up, at least in the same way the score does.

Hey people, I haven't stopped listening to this soundtrack for over a week now. The more i listen the more i get pulled in by it's power. I find this score, apart from very dark and mysterious, i find it beautiful to listen too. Zimmer creates such a rich sound and writes melodies constantly instead of classically written scale work which i think most times is crap! I think that's why Zimmer writes so well becasue he never studied music for years and years at some university, he studied msic by simply sitting and playing and listening to so many different styles of music. I'm so excited to see the film for The Da Vinci Code all because of Zimmer's music. He is an insperation to me and my film composing here in Australia and hopefully one day i get the pleasure of scoring a film with him. I'm allowed to dream arent I? hehe Peace to you all and once again The Da Vinci Code score is brilliant!

Well,it's not Zimmer's best score.It is a mix of two others thriller movies that He made before:Hannibal and The ring.Original?No.Beautiful?Without a doubt but I espected something else(action music actually)and only the track 13 is AMAZING.Take a bet that Pirates of the Carabean will be greater.

I hope that Zimmer will come with better things but this side of Zimmer-Serious Music never stops to amaze. Mature music not the usual type and he amazes me because he's one of the finest composers in both styles. This score is one of the best by Zimmer. Those who tend to connect Zimmer with only Action music are doing a bit mistake in my opinion. This score and others in this style make him a versatile composer and capable of writing music for different audiences. Those who love classical music will tend to love this score to its maximum more than anyone else.

Where is the music from the official "Da Vinci Code" movie site? I just bought the OST and it's amazing, but none of the music that I was expecting from the site is on it.

It's sad to think that a-ha's Celice will not be the main advertising piece for this movie. Everyone has heard of a-ha, but to think that there exists a secret Bible code and to try to market that into a film???? Now that's odd!

After listening to the soundtrack for a whole day my only comment is TERRIFIC! Some people commented on boring, and lack of a dominant theme and the only thing I would say is, have you listened to the soundtrack?!?!? The main theme is presented in the first cue Dies Mercurii I Martius and it is superb. Long melodic line which is ingeniously absorbed within the harmony. The first cue absolutely genius. It sets the correct mood to the other tracks being enigmatic, dramatic and concise in nature. The lush orchestrations are wonderful and the string-based lines reminds of "The Thin Red Line" & "The Last Samurai". The choral music is exceptional. It is the next step beyond "Kingdom of Heaven". Every track has its own story and result is something colossal. Some very good highlights are "Dies Mercurii I Martius" "Fructus Gravis" "Salvete Virgines" "Poisoned Chalice" "Chevaliers De Sangreal" & "Kyrie For The Magdalene". "Chevaliers De Sangreal" is main title that is going to make a hit almost for sure. The heartbreaking melody is presented at its full glory and the Hans Zimmer "French Horns" make their statement as clear as crystal!!!! DAMN GOOD This score is recomended 100%. The only thing left now is to see the movie and see how it amalgamates. The underscore present on the Soundtrack will surely make the movie a wonderful experience; the music is exceptional on its own, so in the movie I think it will do its job. After having listened to almost every score released by Mr. Hans Zimmer I might conclude that this score really impressed me. The "classical" blood in the veins of the Enigmatic style of Mahler had really worked well for Zimmer. It is one of those formulas you have managed to perfect.

I hope that other people will love the enigmatic effect as much as I do :) ***** out of 5 (100%)!

Yes, the theme was performed by a choir in the first trailer (not teaser) and is also featured on the soundtrack release.
