Exactly Solomon !<br>THe use of the krypton theme in the spaceship scene made this moment more intense and it felt... natural... as if the rest of the music doesnt blend in the atmosphere we were used to with the previous movies.@scarecrow9: Wikipedia says that filming originally wrapped in October 2016, and that Zack was taken off the project in May 2017. That's at least 6 months of post-production, so hopefully yes.<br>@Leonard Dante: You don't think it's disrespect to Snyder that the film bears his name but Whedon cut it up and redid his story with terrible reshoots and replaced his nominated composer?<br><br>Lastly, I will say that I watched the film earlier today and thought it was absolutely terrible. The best part was the few seconds where Zimmer's "Krypton" theme was playing in the scoutship!Hybrid, do you think that the Snyder´s Cut could really exist somewhere? Let alone with Tom´s score, do you think that he even began scoring the film? I would love to see that version. Thank you for your answerBalfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers<br>=================================<br><br><br>Even composers who do one or two movies a year receive help. So it's very, very hard for me to believe that Balfe - with the amount of movies he works on now - is out there by himself, scoring it all by himself. It's simply not possible. And this is the MV/RC world after all. Composers help each other all the time. And many of these collaborations don't even make it to this site. It's very hard to keep track of everything.imo whedon and elfman screwed up the movie, i'd say Zacks original cut would be better, then again thats just me tho
Perhaps. But it would be a disrespect to Whedon and Elfman. Okay. If that means more money on the table, they will.HOPE NEVER DIES.<br><br>Sources confirm this days on social media that Zack Snyder Original Cut of Justice League not only exists, but have VFX's work and Junkie XL's score on it.<br><br>That could be really EPIC.<br><br>The Fight for this can happens is bigger every minute passes, dont lose the faith, not now.Cannot freaking wait!"Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers"<br><br>As if. Just look through this site and you'll see additional guys credited for lots of his scores. Max Aruj, Steffen Thum, Thomas Farnon, Andrew Kawczynski on some projects...he's a very busy guy but I promise you he doesn't do every single second of his 15 scores a year on his own.Bayhem - Balfe is one of the few that hasn’t got additional writers though.which films has this small army of ghostwriters ???!!!!!!
You say Balfe worked on the last Transformers(2017). Okay. He may have been called by the Paramount. However, his involvement with the franchise in 2005 and in the following years happened because of the RCP and Zimmer's direct involvement in the project. There in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2014 he was a guest of RCP/MV and no received no call for help of the Paramount. There is no other way.he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter .<br>.....................................<br><br><br>I've asked him a lot of stuff. We're Facebook friends. And yes, I know he worked on the first one. I clearly said it a couple of times in my replies here. He worked on the first one and the second one as well. But if you try to imply that Balfe deserves the credit for these scores, you are way, way off the mark. And it's very disrespectful to Jablonsky. Very.<br><br>Now, clearly you like Balfe a lot. Fine. But please don't undermine a far more experienced and successful composer like Jablonsky, just because Balfe is the "hot MV/RC composer" at the moment. We, the Jablonsky fans, certainly didn't act that way in 2007 when Jablonsky's name was everywhere and people were going crazy for the Transformers score. No one denies that Balfe worked hard on the Transformers films. But he's not the "main guy". Just like a lot of MV/RC composers have worked on HIS scores and they're not the main composers. You think Balfe scores all of his movies alone? Nope. Like any other successful and busy composer out there, he's supported by a small army of ghostwriters.Studio = Paramount and he worked on the first transformers . And did a lot. Why not ask him on twitter . I did !!!!!!Balfe never worked for Jablonsky =========================================<br><br>By "worked for Jablonsky" I meant he worked ON Jablonsky scores. And as James said, it's all MV/RC anyway. They all know each other and help each other. The first Transformers movie started post-production at the end of 2006. Back then no one knew who Balfe was (aside from the biggest MV/RC fans). His big break arguably came in 2009-2010. Years after the first Transformers movie. So no matter how we spin it, he still came after Jablonsky. Jablonsky is his senior and obviously has much more experience. And we have to respect that. <br><br>That was my point.Should have gotten one for Interstellar, not this.
"Strength And Honor" is a forerunner to the main theme of King Arthur and also the theme for Transformers!<br><br>I was listening to the soundtrack and unwittingly the music sent me to these two other movies. :Dhe says he was brought in by the studio.<br><br>-----------------------------------------------<br><br>Studio = RCP = Hans Zimmer credit as producer of the score.<br>In end of day is the same thing.Maybe a honorary in the future.Bayhem - your wrong on a couple of points . Balfe never worked for Jablonsky .In a recent podcast he was asked about Transformers and he says he was brought in by the studio.seems the same with the lastest Film also.its pretty obvious the temp for the end is 13 Hours also.A "spanish" score. This is great!

No offence to the show, but this score was completely wasted on it. This is too good of a score to be used on a damn reality television series. If those tracks were used for an action-packed movie, it probably would've been considered one of the best action scores out there. And it would've been very, very popular. I'm sure of it.

Still, props to Hans and Steve for creating this score. While we're at it, here's my personal favorite track:

The main theme is popular. He inspired the theme of Brian Tyler for Thor, a Kingsman track and the main theme of Geostorm.

Plus the Two Steps From Hell track "Road to Revelation". :p

One thing that needs to happen Zimmer should put all of is stuff on iTunes to make it available for everyone all the unofficial releases. It doesn't need to even be complete scores just some of the stuff from scores like this that never got released

For some scores that sound like Contender sequels check out David Vanacore. He's credited in the score here but nobody's said anything about him. He writes for pretty much all of the big game shows and reality shows today.

The theme to Duel is particularly similar to The Contender. To bad they don't sell its score either. Check him out. I was surprised I'd never heard of him. (Listen to the "Reality Drama" samples!)

www.davidvanacore.com

Apparently the only Vanacore albums for sale are Survivor and Eco Challenge on Amazon:

No where! It's called a bootleg for a reason.

@ (...)

Where would you go to get a CD released then ?
It's better to post that you want something released here, than nowhere. I mean, the studios won't read any of the mails, but if the wishes to have something release are posted nowhere, how would ANYone know someone is interested in this ?

Also, there is a chance that Hans or another composer reads these messages. Some time ago Trevor Morris (If I'm correct) asked to be removed from the site. And Disney asked to remove the samples of Pirates music. So people of the industry DO come here. Better try and fail than no try at all.

You're all idiots because this is an unofficial fan site. Hans Zimmer isn't reading these comments and going "Hmm I should listen to these guys." Even if he did, composers don't control the rights over their music, studios do.

Why are we idiots? This music inspires and is probably the most motivating score I've ever heard. If you'd like to listen for yourself, just go to imeem.com and search "The Contender." You won't be disappointed.

Hello Mr.Zimmer I truly enjoy this soundtrack. I pray that you let the world hear this muisc that you have created it gives me strength to keep moving.I think bruce lee himself would enjoy it.

I just finished listening through streams of this album and let me tell you, every track is epic in every sense of the word. "Defeat (Theme 1)" is an incredibly emotional track and will remind you of another Zimmer work, "The Thin Red Line." Other great tracks are "Training" and "Victory." Both are so powerful and so moving, one can't help being touched by Zimmer and Jablonsky's work. The greatest track though, of course is the "Main Theme." Overall, one of the best albums ever and I can't wait to get my hands on it someday.

I've been hoping this music would be released for 3 1/2 years, now. By far the best theme music for a television series!

How many people would have to sign a petition before Mr. Zimmer releases this album? I know I'd be the first one on the list, because for this is one of the most moving albums to date. Just a thought...

Mii reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-03 00:00:00
Hans Zimmer did not composed the Main Theme, the all score (including main theme) is by Steve Jablonsky, if you listen, the style is 100% Jablonsky, drums, bells.......

Mr. Zimmer, why are you afraid not to release the soundtract for sale? A lot of us fans watched "The Contender" not only for the dream of one boxer to become a champion, but also for the beautiful music that you have so marvelously composed for this series.

For you not to release this wonderful soundtrack is a big disappointment of fans like me who are into inspiritional music. This music stirs not my soul but the souls of other people.

Here is my offer, release the soundtrack for a limited time(60 to 90 days). If a lot of people buy it, then you know you have a hit album that could easily go platimun Share this piece of music with the rest of the world. Besides, would Beethoven have decided to kept his music to himself? Would Elvis only sang his songs to his mother and no one else? Come on Mr. Zimmer, step out of your comfort zone and let the public have a copy of the soundtrack from "The Contender."

The Contender is such a great motivator. As an executive associated with sales people, I'd love to be able to play this song every week at our meetings to get people fired up. As an old boxer, this one song motivates me. It's kind of like the orginal song "The EYE of the TIGER" from Rocky movies.
