Can't think of a more meaningless and laughable award than the oscar for this one? nahh...<br>maybe he gets a nomination for dune or bondMaybe WW1984May know how to downloaddamn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOL
Yeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photoHah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.
This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.I like the tracksWow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.
Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2That recording footage makes it all the more baffling to me why the end product sounds the way it does.I understand the comments about the orchestra sounding like samples by some of the comments?<br><br>If you follow his Twitter you see the BBC orchestra recording the soundtrack.Season two is cool and Balfe’s music is bigger that season 1.Bit choirs also.I love Hillbilly also but it sounds very familiar just with different guitar instruments.Paradise is so emotional and sonically more interesting to me at least

I refuse to indulge in your game playing. I assure you I am genuine, you lot are just jealous.

Google me. You'll find me credited in IMDB. I do extensive audio work on the side. But you're not a pro, so how would you know?

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to catch a flight to San Francisco.

By the way, I telephoned Steve a while back. He agrees with me about you all.

I am taking the time out of my very busy work schedule (I'm catching a flight to LA and then to Paris to work on a joint venture), to respond to your immature comments.

Per, you don't have anything like the proper bootleg. If you think the release CD has better sound quality you are totally wrong. The copy of this CD I have is recorded to incredibly high fidelity standards. I have the master production CD which includes full streo audio, clear and crisp. If, Per, your audio is "so much [worse] sound quality", then I suspect you don't have a proper bootleg. You have my pity and sympathy. However, I am still not willing to aid you, just like I was not willing to aid Clown and like I forbade Terrance from aiding any of you.

Me: Get a grip. I am not going to say any more than this. I earn over 200,000 a year producing this sort of thing. I'm a professional in this field -- a true professional. Hell, I've talked to Steve Jablonsky himself more than once. You're just a nobody. Hey, you didn't even give your name. "Nobody".

So, is all this "want but can't have" symbolic of the rest of your life? It looks like an apt parallel. This goes especially for Cloud.

I forbid you to reply to this post. I don't NEED this. I'm a specialist audio engineer working for Hollywood. You're just a nobody living in nowhere. Don't bother replying. It's wasted - you're wasted. I don't need to talk to nobodies like you. Sad people who have to attack good people just because they have something you don't. You're bad for society.

Good morning, SPECIALIST AUDIO ENGINEER. Yet again I have to take the time out of my very, very busy schedule to show off on a public forum. Again I'm very disappointed by your inability to read and understand my previous posts (sure, it's a lot of text for a busy, handsome, rich and successful young man like you). Well, what can I say... uuh, congratulations on talking to Steve a few times. Wow, I mean you're like brothers now or something.

James, honestly let's cut the crap. Stop pretending and reveal your true identity. C'mon. This was fun, but we should stop this before people start believing there's really such a looney sound engineer out there somewhere.

Ok, have a nice day. I will, because I'm going to listen to my genuine Transformers bootleg in glorious crystal clear crisp audio right now... my precioussssss...

Let's imagine for a second that this guy is "real", would you? Ok. He says that you earn 200,000 every year...well...lucky you because you have a fantastic job (if YOU are real). This means that you are very good at what you are doing and that every composer would love to work with you, am I right?
So...why there are no informations about "James Mates" on the net? A bit strange...unless this is NOT your real name (well, that was easy) and you are a LIAR.

You CANNOT get this score legally, raven, I got it although only through my specalist contact in the industry James did i manage this, james was kind enuf to post a bit about y u cannot get this tracks, if you want this score USE THE SAMPLES click above!!!!!! u have 6 cuts provided by the good Antas, click & listen, but you can NOT have this legally, buy the full score, which is released it contains a FRACTIOn of the bootleg which I am enjoying rite now (I am on the beautiful track 44 truly fantastic stuff) but is good enuf 4 you, b/c u are probs just like 15 or something!

ROFL, what?? You should read what I wrote. What on earth are you two even talking about? What is all this providing/demanding stuff?? I seriously hope this is some kind of joke. I'm absolutely NOT interested in any of you posting more music from this bootleg anywhere. As I said, anyone can have it if they know where to look for it and if they're ready to go through some necessary risks to enjoy music they want to enjoy. We all have our own "sources" (sorry, can't tell you more because it could endanger the fate of the universe).

HONESTLY!!! u are warned above, "This zone is only to post comment, not to ask for CD downloading, copying or trading"
Sure, trading, you may get it, but this is it, you cannot get it for NOTHING, and this is what the ungrateful people lke Cloud and Keith want?
I only got it from my m8 James, we are good mates, we go way back, that is why he sent me the music
Is hat lright KAYA!?!? Also although I don't know steve my mate James does they chat on the phone once or twice but he did not get the music from steve he got it from another professional in his field I cannot disclose more I am afraid as this could edanger him all I can tell yo is he got it from a special source, one that you cannot get hold of so the ungrateful people here cannot listen to the music without the right entitlement
I was very kind in saying I could not provide it, I even apologise taht this is not possible, I also ask you to be grateful for what antas post
Have you seen what antas post!!!? SCROLL UP! You will see the 4 clips antas has been more than generous wit u all, and all u do is throw it bk in his face and my face and my mate james's face by demanding more as though you somehow deserve it, well i got news for you grow up and learn that you can only get what you are given and no more
you will never know James as he is my good friend, I have told him about yo ulot
James is the only one with this music
You cannot get it from him and ANtas has already ruled out trading on this message list QUITE WISELY, thank you antas!!!!
Thanks, terence

I am taking the time to write to you all from my hotel in Manhattan Island, New York (NY), because Terence is upset at how some of you reacted to his comments.

This is quite ridiculous. Some of you - especially "Cloud" and Kata, are behaving like children.

I am not willing to provide detail about how I got what I did, other than that I gave it to my friend Terence as a favour and for no reason other than that. This is why I cannot provide it to anyone else and I hope you understand that.

I should add that although Terence might well like to give you the music, sadly it is not his perogative. I gave him the music and it is my decision as to whether it is provided to others. I am sorry but for the protection of my own personal privacy, I am not willing to provide it to others. If you can source this disc from elsewhere, good for you.

However, until then, Please stop being jealous of something someone else has just because you don't. It's childish and unprofessional. Some people - look right at Keith and Cloud here - are provided with samples, such as those provided by Antas, and then want more.

Please, get rid of this sense of "entitlement". This is the one thing upon which Cloud and I agree. You are NOT entitled to this music, and you don't have any scruples when it comes to demanding music.

All my other professional friends in this field agree with this view. I hope you do too.

Kind regards,

James Mates

Yeah, I love it when people think they are privileged for having a bootleg score, like it was Mr. Jablonsky who gave it to them himself. Geesh, anyone who can get on a trading forum can probably find it. Myself, I make it a rule that I own the original and official score release before I even search or listen to a bootleg unless the score is not even commercially available.

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2008-02-05 00:00:00
Entitled, lol. C'mon guys, stop it already. "Only a number of people can get hold of it" - anyone can have this if they look hard enough, there's thousands of people who have it by now. We all know it and we don't talk about it. We just enjoy the music.

James Mates reply Replies: 0 || 2008-02-05 00:00:00
I would like to speak in support of my friend Terence, who asked me to let you all know there is no way I can supply you with the music. I supplied it to Terence as a favor, and made it clear that it is for him and him alone. I do hope you understand me when I say you are not entitled to this music. Terence made a good point about the samples posted above - enjoy what you can get. I got this music through another source, but I am the audio engineer Terence refers to. I have given it out to a few people but have mostly kept it for myself. I am sorry that you are NOT entitled to the music. Kind regards, J. Mates. SPECIALIST AUDIO ENGINEER

hi keith, NO you cannot get it on iTunes, only a number of people can get hold of it, i will not reveal my source but I retrieved it from a specialist audio engineer with whom i am in contact, i cannot help you any further and you wont get it BUT you can listen to the four samples above, click the links and listen, NO MATCH FOR THE REAL 53-TRACK CD but you will have to put up with that m8, you can't get any better, i can only get it due to my connections in the media industry

Is this track on any of the transformers soundtracks. Please assist."

It is on the official soundtrack called Scorponok.
