"Why the producers never remember John Powell?". Is what I question to my self everytime outs a dissappointing superheroe score, like The Avengers by Alan Silvestri, John Powell did this great score for X-Men, and looks like nobody remember it, why John Powell never else did another superhero score (ok, it's Hancock, I know), but Joh Powell can do something else, to part of just excelent score for animated movies
Maybe they ask him every time and he's the one refusing these projects... He took a lot of time for himself/his family, maybe he's not as much a work-junkie as HZ is :-)
But these are pure speculations, we don't have a clue.
The essential thing is: a lot of people are missing John Powell and would be extremely happy to see him gloriously return. I hope he comes from time to time on this website and see all the love we have for him!
2015, guys—How To Train Your Dragon 2 and, presumably, the next John Williams Star Wars score! :D
My favorite of Powell
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is for 2014, I really want to hear this score, the first is a masterpiece by John Powell
Mike if there's one thing in 2015 i absolutely don't care about, it has to be that f#cking Star Wars movie, including its soundtrack. And i'm already tired of all the hype that's going to come over the next two years :D
lol....harsh. I can understand not caring about the movie, but the music, too???? :P Oh well, to each his own.
How can you not care about the opportunity to hear more Star Wars scores from John Williams?
I LOVE phoenix rises!! I consider it my own personal theme, and I play it every morning to get my blood pumping! It is a better eye-opener than coffee WITH caffene! It's better than a 6-pack of red bulls! It's just so Goddessy-girl-powery-awe-inspiring-wowee-wow-wow!
I have to say...the "Phoenix Rises" is just too powerful for me to listen to without breaking down with tears in my eyes!!! I know every fan in here would agree with me! I'm not ashamed to admit my personal feelings for this particular score! It's just that every time that I hear "Phoenix Rises", it seems that every core inside my body is forcing its way through the pores of my skin!!! Unbelievably incredible film score by John Powell!!!
Dies irae, dies illa, This day, this day of wrath Solvet saeclum in favilla: Shall consume the world in ashes, Quando Judex est venturus When the judge shall come Quando Judex When the judge Dies irae, dies illa This day, this day of wrath Dies irae, dies illa This day, this day of wrath
Tuba mirum spargens sonum The trumpet, scattering its awful sound Per sepulchra regionum Across the graves of all lands Coget omnes ante thronum. Summons all before the throne. Mors stupebit et natura, Death and nature shall be stunned Cum resurget creatura, When mankind arises Judicanti responsura. To render account before the judge.
I think those are the lyrics but I am not to sure about it though. If anyone knows latin then i am sure they could help out more.
Sorry, I´m from Czech Rep. and I can´t speak very good english, but John Powel is Great Composer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love his soundtrack X3: The Last Stand, the best is Dark Phoenix´s Tragedy and Phoenix Rises..............and Bathroom Titles. But I have a question: Why is the Bathroom Titles in the Movie different from soundtrack??? In the Movie is fast and best ;-)!
Jean Grey/Phoenix/Dark Phoenix's theme music for X3 is easily the best not only in this movie but the entire trilogy! Especially the version from Whirlpool of Love, Phoenix Rises and Dark Phoenix's Tragedy.
"La La LaLa Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... LaLaLaaaaaaaaaa.... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.... DuDu Duuu Duuuuu...
La LaLaaaaaa Laaaaaaaaaaaaa.... La La Laaaaaaaaaa..... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaa...."
