Yeah... I'm not sure about Elfman's wave. The guy decided to bring back his old Batman theme instead of actually writing a new one. He has to re-invent himself. <br>Seven with ZimmerYeah, Silvestri, Newman, Goldenthal and JNH too. The six most popular "new" composers, along with Horner, of the  80's and 90's.I saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't waitI saw a few clips from the movie on youtube. The score sounded really good. Very unlike Djawadi and very beautiful fantasy music! Can't wait
Honestly, I do feel bad for Elfman, because for Chrissakes hes been doing 50 Shades of Grey these days, and the last memorable scores I have of him are from 2012. But I don't think Zimmer or even Elfman for that matter are done as yet. I predict by the end of this decade Zimmer will have a new wave in popularity wash in. I'm just waiting for Elfman's wave right now...not quite seeing it yet.Glad you caught it Rockhound. Think the others were too wound up to notice !!i was trying to be funny.Pete you are funny, although u demand from others to talk about the actual soundtrack from this page, you start to talk also about another soundtrack. but ok.... i think Forgotten is a very boring track and adds nothing to the actual scene. a variation of his theme from the track Hero would have been much more intense for the ending. sadly we got 9 boring minutes of thematic development and instrumentation. Lorne can do much better as the track Hero from the same soundtrack shows.Zimmer got X-Men: Dark Phoenix this year. And I have a hard time believing he is only scoring that film this year. Zimmer always does more than 1 film a year.No need for petty cursing .<br><br>We can discuss the soundtrack instead ! <br><br>Forgotten is cool track.Itís definitely one of Bayís best movies. Wish he would make more drama based film obvious with some action. Canít cope with more robots ! The ending of the film is so emotional and this track gave goosebumps at the end. Did sound very similar to the end of The Last Knight
"Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subject."<br><br>Ok, so someone else gets us on this topic, an arguement occurs, and NOW, only when you've realized you're losing the arguement, do you decide that this page is only for 12 strong. Which it's not. This is a forum we talk about whatever we want here.<br><br>But what a childish and pathetic attempt at avoiding our points. Just dismissively saying "Boring! Change the subject! My ears can't handle this criticism!!! Wah, wah, wah!" I guarantee you the next step after this is going to be petty cursing.Boring . Talk about the actual soundtrack or change the subjectUpset about success? Sounds like someone doesn't know a thing about reasonable criticism. :p<br><br>If anyone likes Balfe, then good on them. I only get annoyed when people decide he's suddenly the most amazing thing ever, which he really isn't. Even on his most competent scores, it's unlikely many would recognize him as one of the greats. Respect him, sure, but not think he's out of this world. Especially if people are still gonna be excited about hearing the work of someone else when a different person is hired (i.e. what JL might've been).Can we please change the subject !!!!!!!!it is so boring now.This page is ment to be about the sound track to 12 StrongThere you go again, accusing me of being upset about Balfe's success when I never said anything like that. Stop putting words in my mouth.
AgreedThe point is Edmund and others  donít need to keep getting upset about Balfes success.Dont reply and just focus on other conversations.No one here is interested in hearing anyone bashing any of the great composers on this site from Remote. Grow up or move on.Appreciate the voice of support. :)Good god, this Balfe/Anonymous guys is wreaking havoc! Good thing Djawadi's fans are calmer than Balfe's.Jesus Christ, what a mess! What is wrong with you Balfe fanboys? Edmund comes in trying to settle down the situation and add some nuance and you just curse him out? He even admits to liking Lorne, basically states how the top comment is far too harsh, defends Balfe, and all he does against him is call out Michael for borderline bullying someone else into worshiping Balfe.<br><br>After all of that, all you can possibly say in response to him is "go away you John Powell fanboy"? For saying one thing against a guy basically being a mindless fanboy. Which by the way is an unbelievably poor argument because I've seen Edmund criticize Powell scores before. Is Edmund not aloud to prefer Powell? He didn't even bring his music up once in this discussion! Oh no I can see the responses now...<br><br>"superultramegoo go listen to Transformers 5 for the 50th time.we dont need youre stupidumb comments here !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Balfe has won many awardso tyou cant say any thing bad about him you Jablonsky fnaboy.stop with these demoralizing comments.!

I agree with you Martin. This film doesn't want, or need a big brassy heroic score. It needs and underscore and that's what it got. This is a film where the music isn't trying to draw attention to itself.

I'd just like to congratulate Powell on pulling off such a difficult project. It's always a challenge to write a convincing underscore, but on this one, being in a touchy genre must have been harder than we expect.

I saw the film recently in Sydney and found the score to be a sensitive accompaniment to the film. The references to - unwittingly or not - New York minimalism (especially Steve Reich) are very canny and appropriate. A film like this doesn't need a psychologically manipulative or lavish score. Underscoring is what's required and congratulations on delivering just that with no loss of sophistication.

UNITED 93 - PRESS RELEASE

(Los Angeles, CA) John Powell scores the much-anticipated United 93 for Universal Pictures and writer-director Paul Greengrass. The film is a real time account of the heroism in United Flight 93, the fourth plane to be hijacked the morning of September the 11th, 2001. The film premiered at New Yorkís Tribeca Film Festival, screened at Canned and opened April 28. United 93 marks the second collaboration between Powell and Greengrass; the two had collaborated previously on The Bourne Supremacy and will rejoin in The Bourne Ultimatum. For United 93, Powell created an ambient score which he recorded in London with a live orchestra. Varese Sarabande will release the score CD June 6.

As the Powell-scored Ice Age: The Meltdown continues its march to the $200 million mark at the box office, audiences have turned out for another summer box office monster Powell has scored, X-Men: The Last Stand, which has broken records to gross over $175 million in just two weeks.

Powell's long and storied career in music began in Britain where he joined performance art group Media Arts while attending Trinity College of Music. While composing music for television and commercials for Air-Edel Music, he worked alongside composers Hans Zimmer and Patrick Doyle and made his first foray into feature films. After Powell co¨founded the commercial music house Independently Thinking Music (ITM) with longtime collaborator Gavin Greenaway, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue feature film composing.. He immediately scored several projects for DreamWorks Television, but it was his stirring score for John Woo's blockbuster Face/Off that put him in Hollywood's short list. He has since scored a wide variety of films and is well known for his scores to actioners Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Italian Job, The Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy as well as jazzy scores for Be Cool and Alfie.

In addition to Jason Bourne's next adventure, Powell's upcoming slate includes the animated musical Happy Feet, and the film adaptation of the graphic novel The Watchmen.

This Sounds Great !!!!. When does it come to Europe ( Holland ) I Hope it comes very fast.

I Think the score sounds better if you have the images from the film in your head...........

I don't think it comes close to an orchestra - I've only listened to it a couple of times because it's so boring and all I remember is some violins and the occasional percussion.

This time Mr. Powell makes me wanna sleep at all...

There is no orchestra in this project , right ?

Rather bland - it just sounded like the Bourne scores without any action.

my thoughts exactly .. the end and dedication are decent but the rest..
and during this time no release for the dynamic klaus badelt score for "Ultraviolet".. ts ts ts

very, very, very atmospheric score.
Just percusion and ambience music.

Some string and Powell's son vocals.

"the End" is a moving track.But the rest is like nothing.I can't understand why powell has wanted release this score.

Though it seems to be way too short, I'm glad to see this coming out at last.

Indeed, "Thanks Varese!"
