It'd be awesome if Hans and co. went the Thor: Ragnarok route and created some kickass psychedelic synth ballads. I'm interested to hear how they interpret their WW theme for this setting.Is there a date for Lisbon, Portugal?<br>Thank youthis is never hans :DI just finished the movie last week and the score was the best thing about the film. The scene using the cue "Simba is Alive!" is perfect.Not all synths. Mazzaro and Fleming posted pictures of them recording the score at Air Studios early in November so there will be some orchestral or instrumental music.
As the trailer posts, soundtrack coming from WaterTower Music.No, it's just a slight rework of Blue Monday by New Order. Admittedly, it's quite catchy. Nothing from Hans tho, not even the WW-theme at the end which they did for the first movies trailers. Guess we have to wait till the movie comes out.The only thing that matters to me about the movie is Hans, so I wonder, has the trailer musicalized Hans?Synth Hans Iím guessing ;-)Yeah, it's a nice little mini HTTYD score. It's a bit frustrating that he's seemingly never allowed to develop an idea for very long before moving on to the next thing and the next (probably because of the pacing of the short), but I like the way he plays around with Powell's themes. It makes me think that if they ever decide to make a fourth HTTYD movie and Powell decides he's said all he has to say in the series, Willis would be a good choice to continue it (Zanelli/Pirates style).
He's also credited on one short cue from Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, but other than that, nothing that I know of...Just saw the movie. Seemed like the score is enjoyable enough, but I didn't hear much that would distinguish it from the first one really except some kind of standard villain material.Because those have nothing to do with Hans Zimmer or associated composers....How come the Pixar franchise albums like "Toy Story," "Monsters, Inc.," "Finding Nemo" and "Cars" didn't make it in this website?Anthony Willis (additional composer on HTTYD 2 & 3) just wrote a nice score for HTTYD Homecoming, a "christmas special" short. The score is based on Powell's themes and style, which is a nice addition to the trilogy.<br><br>You can listen to excerpts here :<br>https://www.animationmagazine.net/tv/exclusive-music-clips-h ow-to-train-your-dragon-homecoming-holiday-special/
Michael John Mollo - I've never seen that name before. Has he done any other RCP work?Does anyone know where this can be located or purchased? I would buy this complete score from a legal source if it were available."Might not have happened with Poltergeist, but it did with 300 ROAE !"<br><br>Yes, I can accept that, as I don't know much about that production, and I apologize for hijacking the "300" discussion, but:<br><br>"https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news / poltergeist-steven-spielberg-director-conspiracy-theory-conf  irmed-tobe-hooper-a7846651. html"<br><br>I'll trust at least two actors, whom working with is literally a director's job description, over a very green AC on a production with numerous moving parts always working at once.Might not have happened with Poltergeist, but it did with 300 ROAE !Lorne: "6 Underground has been a fantastic experience. I started writing just before he (Bay) started filming. And then while he was filming, I was writing throughout that process so he was able to hear the music and work with it during the early stages of editing. Itís just a fantastic movie.<br><br>Thereís nobody that can shoot like Michael Bay. Itís exciting and itís pure. Itís the reason why I got into movies. My movies that I would sit as a young teenager and look at were made by Jerry Bruckheimer and were films like Bad Boys or The Rock. Con Air and all these movies were what made me want to get into film and if Crimson Tide is on the television, thatís me for the next two hours. Iím not leaving. That was what made me fall in love with film. And so itís great to be able to work with Michael and Jerry. So yeah, 6 Underground was just an absolute blast and great fun."<br><br>- https://collider.com/lorne-balfe-interview-gemini-man-his-da rk-materials-bad-boys-3/<br>

Man, I long forgot about this score (probably because it got overshadowed by Transformers). But, after rediscovering it and revisiting it, I didnít realize how hauntingly beautiful this is. A true Jablonsky hidden gem.

Side note, any idea what happened to the man? I know he has a Pete Berg movie coming out soon, but not much else than that. Really missing his scores as of late.


Bayhem2019-08-08 15:31:42
He became a father. One kid and another one, soon after the first. He made it clear in interviews that he's focused more on his family. Which makes sense after 5 huge Transformers movies. lol.

As Steve himself said, scoring one Transformers movie is like scoring 2 normal movies. He worked on other projects at the same time, so you can imagine how tough and exhausting it must've been for him and his crew. And for him and his family.

I miss him too, but I totally get why he decided to step back for a while. And it's not like he isn't working. He's got that big comicbook movie too - Bloodshot. And probably other projects we still haven't heard.


Miralsice2019-08-17 22:09:22
The greatest thing that could happen, if Katsuhiro Otomo, who returns after very long 15 years break, reunited with Steve for his new anime ęOrbital EraĽ. I don't know the story behind the creation of ęSteamboyĽ and how Steve get that job, but this was one of the best works of Jablosnky and my favorite.

It could be the greatest joy to hear Steve in full-orchestral mod and in anime-project like this.

I know, that all of this is a long shot and almost imposible, but you never know how things could turn.

Man, this is one where I wish there was a complete score release. To be honest, I like this score a lot more than Transformers. Jablonsky's raw talent here is unbelievable, and it feels like his score, rather than an RCP/Zimmer one. First, I love how there's only 4 themes, Love Theme, Imoogi, the classical piece that plays at the beginning of "Village Attack" which I can't remember the name of, and the D-War battle music that slowly develops throughout the score. This allows these themes to be used to their fullest potential, unlike Transformers where each theme is used 5 times at most because there was just too many to develop.

I also love the atmosphere of this score. Some tracks almost feel like they inspired Jeremy Soule for some of his Skyrim travelling music. Mainly "The Legend Awakes", "Yeouijoo", and "Second Life". The nature sounds, the instrument variety, the purity of the strings, it feels like something you could listen to while traveling through the mountains.

The action tracks, are wonderfully fitting for a monster movie score with the brute, overwhelming force of the horns, the complex string/underscore, it feels classical the way Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings is classical. Familiar, yet unique to the composer.

The way the themes develop is perfect, with the love theme developing into the classical death theme as the score closes out in "Farewell", the way the classical death theme develops into the main battle theme in "The Altar", "Buraki", and "D-War". And of course, the way Imoogi breaks down through the film, and rebuilds until the satisfying and beautiful finale of "Arirang".

This score, while being made for one of the most infamously bad monster movies ever, has so much care and love put into it. I've never even seen the full movie, but thanks to the fantastic storytelling in the music alone, I feel like I've already experienced it. Probably better than if I'd seen the movie if it is as bad as people say. Highly underappreciated Jablonsky score, and one of my favorite scores ever.

Sorry to go on for so long, but this score is like Steamboy for me, where once I start, I have to finish it in the same day because I love how perfectly it's crafted for this type of movie.


Hybrid Soldier2018-03-15 11:36:02
Funny that many people saw Transformers ripoffs in it while it was written a year before...

The film is hilariously bad, but guess what, they are making a sequel !

Jablonsky should come back, just for the joke ! lol


Edmund Meinerts2018-03-15 12:41:11
I enjoyed your impassioned defense of the score. I really ought to give it another listen one of these days, I've got the "Imoogi" cue on a few playlists but otherwise haven't heard it for years. I remember liking it okay though (nowhere near as much as Steamboy, but a solid score nevertheless). I'm especially intrigued by your Skyrim comparisons!


superultramegaa2018-03-15 13:51:40
I do really hope Jablonsky comes back for the sequel. I miss this type of music from him, the more detailed and mostly orchestral stuff. Transformers 1, 2, and 5 are a lot of fun, but not as good as this IMO.

And Edmund, yeah Yeouijoo in particular gives me a lot of Skyrim vibes, particularly the really calm and peaceful opening. Also the classical piece I was referencing was Dies Irae. It's usually used in movie scores to convey approaching death.


Backbiter2018-03-15 15:08:53
Never heard of this one, I'll give it listen based of on your review.

I have to admit that missed this soundtrack somehow. Recently opened it as good old vine. Very good soundtrack. It's very close to Transformers, but different. Amazing that number of people asked me whether it was unreleased music from TFs. Thanks to Steve and his team.

It's a nice soundtrack, although i agree it's not going to be like Transformers (1 and 2) that plays non almost every day at my place. Imoogi and Arirang are the best. Arirang reminds me of "Arrival to Earth", i wonder why?! LOL (In case you didn't notice, i was being sarcastic there). As for the film, it's not great but i kind of liked it. (Prepares to be stoned). All in all, a nice effort by Jablonsky.

I'm agree with Ele. This album isn't equilibrated. However, I add the track 'Legend Awakes' for its first approach of the Transformers 'All Spark' theme.

Transformers comes very close...however D-War takes my nomination as best Jablonsky score. "Arirang", "Imoogi", and "Love Theme" are simply brilliant...they helped make the movie more enjoyable then what it was.
