Sounds like a Zimmer version of the Top Gun Anthem to me. Whoever did it, it works!me who seldom watch any of these superhero movies and remakes went and saw the new aladdin last weekend.<br><br>based on my own experience of that remake i have come to the conclusion that maybe some of the reviewers are stuck-up and not open-minded? i did enjoy the new takes on some of the songs. the new movie felt like that. a new different movie to me. <br><br>i decided that i will go and watch these movies for myself now. and i would not watch (or listen to original scores) in advance to build up expectation. i will go and enjoy my time and the songs.<br><br>that's all &#175;\_(&#12484;)_/&#175; you can't please everyone.To be honest. I love the bonus score tracks, nut those remixes are a wazte of disc soace in my opinion. I would've rather have 20 extra minutes of score.<br><br>Let the Complete Score come!For everyone that's heard it, is the Deluxe Edition worth a double dip?@Hybrid is this the combination of FYC promotional score + official release by LLL?
Use your hybrid skills to unravel the mysteries of the score.Cuesheet is blank.oh yes please, including Balfe - dont start yelling, Im just really curious who did whatFinally! It would be nice to have composers credits@DT<br>Disney definitely tries to put quality into their projects, which is why I admire them. As youve said, WDAS and Pixar are both churning out some excellent and original films. Even Marvel, despite its formula and flaws, tries new things with the films and stick closely to the source material. <br><br>The problem with the remakes is that they seem to be nothing more than cash-grabs that prey on nostalgia. If you are going to retell a beloved story at least try something different and exciting, instead of trying to copy/paste what everyone has seen.
This is where I wish we could edit our comments.<br><br>Not only do you have WDAS doing mostly-new movies (I hesitate to say 'original') but you have Pixar doing them as well. Toy Story 4 was their last sequel for the foreseeable future, with them even eschewing the popular option of doing an Inside Out sequel for original projects.I feel like people are overreacting in a way that suggests these remakes have far more power than they actually do. The studio that makes them is separate from every other studio. WDAS is still creating new content and will be for many, many years to come, long after the remakes have had their heyday.<br><br>If anything, the proliferation of superhero films is far more likely to drown out originality on that front: there are multiple studios doing it.Order I went with for the album<br><br>Everything I Need (Film Version)<br>Arthur		<br>Home Invasion (Bonus Track)<br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Ask the&#8239;Sea (Bonus Track)<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Ahab Waves (Bonus Track)<br>Saving Pops (Bonus Track)	Soundtrack	0	1<br>Swimming Lessons	<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan	<br>The Ring of Fire	<br>What Does That Even Mean?Soundtrack	0	<br>Obligation (Bonus Track)	<br>Dunes (Bonus Track)	<br>Map In a Bottle<br>Mera&#8239;Montage	<br>The Black Manta	<br>Trench Engaged (From Kingdom of the Trench)	Soundtrack	0	<br>Reunited		<br>What Could Be Greater Than a King?<br>Suited and Booted		<br>Between Land and Sea		<br>He Commands the Sea	<br>Ocean To Ocean (feat.

The cue I want the most is We Strike First.@Edmund<br>I cant 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. Im 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 Im not crazy about, tried something new. <br><br>Another BIG issue Ive 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.

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 online

Can anyone please tell me what ever happened to the rejected score by Howard Shore? Is that anywhere? I could of swore I read something about him releasing it.


papapalpatine772011-09-18 06:08:15
Yes, I too would like to know what happened to it


Anonymous2011-09-18 07:22:51
I would be nice if someone had the tracklist of it and that leaked. Compare the difference between scores.


Anonymous2011-09-18 07:23:18
*It would be nice* I meant---typo.


John2011-10-22 03:20:19
I don't know if that will leak? But if it does, that'll make my day!!!


Scorefan2018-04-19 01:50:01
There's a video on YouTube. The video shows Howard Shore writing and conducting the music for the orchestra. The video also shows Howard Shore and Peter Jackson talking about the score. After that, Peter Jackson rejected the score writing one statement about that saying Howard and he discuss about the music many times, Howard recorded many cues but in the process Peter he wasnt satisfied about the music. That thing created many discussions, they could not agree in terms of music so Peter fired Howard after that saying he prefered keep Howard as a friend. And then the hobbit came and the rest, well, the relation was not the same.

So there's like 50 to 70% percent of the music recorded by Howard Shore. He didn't finish the recordings, so, yes, there's a rejected score recorded. And then, James came aboard.

Dakota reply Replies: 46 || 2011-02-18 00:00:00
Does anyone know if there is an expanded or complete of this? Not looking for it, just wondering. 74 minutes of music for a 3 hr movie......


Anonymous2011-05-08 21:44:13
There is a recording session leaked somewhere. Idk where.



John 2011-05-12 23:33:14
Is there going to be a leak of the Complete Score to this? Like the 104 track recording sessions? I'm very interested in very the extended tracks and hearing more of the score.


Dakota2011-05-13 08:38:58
Me too. I was on a blog earlier today that had Graeme Revell's suggested cues and Howard Shore's rejected score. Those 2 are the only other materials I have ever seen of King Kong.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-05-13 15:22:40
That Howard Shore King Kong score that is floating around is a fake. It's actually a John Frizzell score (can't remember for which film though)

But JNH wrote a wonderful score for this. Hope that one day we'll find an expanded release.


Dakota2011-05-13 23:23:18
Expanded? Hell, I want the 104-track recording sessions. Almost more than Batman Begins, being that there is at least an expanded of that. Even though it's kinda crappy, one still exists. But yeah, I would love to have this complete.


John 2011-05-13 23:24:10
A Complete Score release like we got for BB & TDK would be AWESOME!


Dakota2011-05-13 23:27:20
Right? Tell me about it........


John 2011-05-14 01:24:57
I think the Kong Score by JNH deserves a complete release b/c of all the work he put into it within a 5-week schedule. I'm very curious of hearing more music than what is on the OST.

O.k. This is something would be awesome to leak though, heck I'd rather have this than Batman Begins Rec. Sessions. Really interested in hearing the rest of the work JNH did on this.


Annoymous2011-08-16 01:38:07
I could upload a few samples of the recording sessions. (Not entire tracks), just a few short samples if anyone wants me to.


Cabok2011-08-16 01:56:16
So, you have complete recording sessions by JNH?


Anonymous2011-08-16 02:09:15
Yes, I do have them, but I am not authorized to leak them out to the whole world or anything like that. I figured just a few short samples on youtube wouldn't hurt too much.

On second thought, I changed my mind about the samples. I don't want to get in any trouble. It probably will leak eventually.

Look...I apologize for backing in out at the last minute. If you were in my situation you would do the same. And I don't even know who Mr. Jones is or what problems you have had with him in the past...I just got on here. Anyway here are 3 tracks sample tracks from the sessions. I can't really remember what what is on OST, but hopefully these are not. These are tracks 11,12 and 37. I can't submit the youtube links so here is the end parts. Just copy the first part of a regular youtube video up to the part where it says "watch" and them copy and paste these ends on the end of it.

This all could be on the OST. Can you post a sample of music when they're battling bugs in the pit


Anon2011-08-16 13:42:03
This guy is full of crap. All of those sampes are directly from the OST. If you really wanted to prove yourself true, knowing the score to King Kong, then you should have the decency of posting tracks of parts of the score you KNOW are not on the OST. Like: 81. 8M4 Kong Chases Jack. a winner in dI think anybody who knows the movie and score can tell you right now this piece of music is not on the OST in ANY form, is mostly percussion and proof enough.

You did not post ANYTHING original, so I believe you to be a liar, Mr Jones.


Anonymous2011-08-16 14:17:51
I will try to post a little bit of the part the where they battle the bugs(Cabok). And I will post a little bit of (track 81). And Anon, I already said in my last post that I can't remember all what is on the OST. And I am not Mr. Jones. You could at least give me a chance. Anyway, I will try to have those two sample tracks up on youtube sometime today.


Areozz2011-08-16 15:25:44
This is HI-larious for Anonymous to have claimed he doesn't know what's on the OST and then he just happened to post three tracks that were on the OST. Out of 104 cues, what are the odds?

However, I have to say this guy is worse than Mr. Jones. At least Mr. Jones posted proof of something bigger out there.


Anon2011-08-16 15:59:19
Im sorry but post the track I mentioned or stop coming in here...Simple as that.

KONG CHASES JACK.

That will prove it.

The two tracks as promised have been posted. Concerning the Ost, I haven't listened to the Ost in months so how am I supposed to remember whats in on the OST? Anyway, here are the links and the proof. If you don't want me to come back I won't. I was trying my best to be nice and show proof, and I keep getting insulted. As much music that is on this, I think(over 3 hours) how in the world am I suppose to remember all this stuff?
Any way here are the links I promised. Goodbye.

This guy is clearly legit. He posted both tracks that we requested (those can be found on his account following above links), "Kong chases Jack" containing mainly percussion hits and "Dead Crew Members" containing eerie vocals and horrorish music-sound effects.

What does posting samples prove anyway? Everyone on here knows it has leaked in so much that certain people have it. And a person posts samples - woohoo, so what? It does not change anything. So someone wants to show off they have something rare? Big deal.

This IS the real deal. The SFX you're talking about are intended sound effects by James Newton Howard. If you listen closely, those SFX aren't even in the movie at all.
