All those people who complain that Hans isn't sticking to more traditional scores forget that at heart, hes a synth man who loves his synthesizers and keyboards. Hans is just as much as a musical artist as Bowie or Paul Mccartney, in the sense that he goes through musical trends and his style adapts or changes. That's just the way it is, enjoy it for what it is. <br><br>Crucify me for comparing a human to David Bowie!Wow! Stephen Barton worked on a lot of the important cues here, huh?I'm with Edmund in that I'd love for Hans to win more Oscars, but not this score. I feel like even Blade Runner 2049 is more deserving of an award than this. Sure, it works great in the film, but that shouldn't be reason enough for an Oscar. I feel like Desplat's nominated score is more deserving than this one. <br><br>"But this one has a unique sound and recording!"<br><br>Okay... a lot of scores have that. A lot of Zimmer's work has that. Doesn't make them all masterpieces.<br><br>"But we have to spite those evil reviewers who hate this score!"<br><br>Why do you let their opinion get in the way of your enjoyment? If you love it enough, the critics' opinions should only make you enjoy it more because you see something in it they don't. <br><br>I agree with George in that Hans needs to go back to a melodic sound. I don't think whether this score wins or not will change Hans' mind on that, but I do want his next Oscar winner to mean something other than, "Oh cool! I won this award because I made weird sounds!" (Which by the way, involves things like programming and a lot of other technical adjustments that have nothing to do with Hans' composing ability)."The thing that I'm proudest about Dunkirk is you can't separate it from the film."<br>- Hans Zimmer, GQI understand, but it does not make sense.<br>You're arguing that the score for a movie released in January this year was produced before of the score of a movie that went to theaters in July. If Balfe started working on "12 strong" a year before the movie release, the same can be said of Dunkirk. It is easy to infer that the Dunkirk's score has been working since the middle of 2016! Or even before, because of the tours that Zimmer has done.<br>The music/sound design, even being simple, was not made and recorded between January and May of last year.
Olive  that is when it was announced !!! Not when he did itBalfe's hiring came out in May, when Dunkirk's production was already at the end. No contest.<br><br><br>filmmusicreporter.  com/ <br> 2017/05/24/lorne-balfe-to-score-horse-soldiers/Hans finished the bulk of the score before he went on tour, you could find an interview where he himself says so. <br>Ben worked solely on Variation 15. <br>Scroll down on this page and you'll find the full cuesheet with the credits. <br>Edmund - how do you think Zimmer wrote Dunkirk when he was on a world tour !!!Congratulations to Ben, Lorne also .Edmund - the release dates do not matter . Check out Balfe’s Facebook page and you will see he was recording 12 Strong early last year .
I've only heard the suite Hybrid made. The only similarity I was aware of is the siren-like sound. <br><br>People don't realize how difficult scoring Dunkirk was. Just because you love Interstellar (I do too - it's my favorite HZ score) but that doesn't mean Dunkirk doesn't deserve to win. <br>Edmund, in all honesty what are the similarities between 12 Strong and Dunkirk? I know both scores and fail to see how they connect.Doesn't deserve an Oscar. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer but if he didn't win for Interstellar, he shouldn't win for this. <br><br>I can seriously say that I object this score winning based on that principle. This winning over Interstellar just isn't right.Well, the credits say that Supermarine or the oil are pure Zimmer, and also the 3 first track I think. So Balfe helped him to develop some ideas during his tour but the majority of the score is Hans' work.<br>And it does deserve an Oscar. I never heard a score like that.. If you have a problem with the score I think it comes from the script. A classical melodical music wouldn t work for this film i think.Source? I find that hard to believe considering the release dates. Even if it is true, Balfe might have been concurrently working on Dunkirk and brought over some of the ideas. I find it spectacularly improbably that he and Hans just HAPPENED to come up with the same ideas at the same time.
Edmund - gets you facts right please . 12 Strong was written before DunkirkHere's an interesting opinion: I want Hans to win this one so that he DOESN'T continue making music like this. Sure its functional, but if he could reinvent the melodic score again and get back to writing memorable melodies I'd be pretty happy. He won for Lion King and then essentially abandoned that tone of music which transitioned into the Crimson Tide/The Rock sound... so maybe, just maybe, if he wins this year he'll completely reinvent his sound again and give us something both melodically memorable but also be a total game changer in terms of modern scores.I hope it doesn't win if for no other reason than so we don't have to go through 5 years of Dunkirk temp tracks (although if 12 Strong is anything to go by, too late).@Ahmad i only need "The Oil (Film Version)" :D Then i'll be happy :D*That was a thumbs up but it didn't work :D<br><br>^This how I feel lol.

Hybrid, did you not say a while back that you didn't think Zimmer actually sat down and did any music in here (he just kinda gave Ramin pointers)?

Snake reply Replies: 2 || 2013-03-27 09:02:02
Actually Harry Gregson-Williams was offered to score the film but he had conflicts with The Prince Caspian and Ramin Djawadi was a replacement. I wonder how would Gregson-Williams do the job.


zeroman2013-03-27 15:27:25
I enjoyed what Ramin did for the score to a degree. But no doubt...if Harry had scored it probably would have turned out alot better.

so was Djawdi never really wanted for the first iron man. since Debny, who has composed all Favreus other films is now composing the second (did he want Debny to begin with and the studio decided aginst it. Or did Djawdi just not want to come back?

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-08 00:00:00
Its very bad score... I still can't understand how Hans is involved in so many tracks... This is called the biggest crap of 2008 for a reason.

MK reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-07 00:00:00
I'm very glad that Ramin got this job and in my opinion he also did it well. I don't think that these kind of films need so profound approach. It's all about the fun and entertainment.

This is one of my favorite Remote scores.
Ramin is good, Ramin with Zimmer is cool.

Thanks for adding the individual song credits to this and POTC - it really clears some things up. But where did you find these credits? Are they official or just educated guesses?

Nah, this score was too bland and simplistic for my tastes... and many other people who also disliked it.

There have been far better scores this year.

Viki reply Replies: 0 || 2008-09-13 00:00:00
Absolutely amazing sound tracks, the sound track fits the theme and the movie's sequences of scenes. A lot of idiots have commented in here that its not good enough, some even haven't seen the damn movie, jerks.

And those who moan about a classic piece of rock and orchestral fusion have no taste for anything, bunch of tossers.

meh

This easily one of the best scores of the year! There is no disappointment, the only disappointment is that there are a lot of hot heads and goofs who moan about it.

It's not Djawadi fault too, because he did what the director/producer wanted to have.

John Debney commented on Iron Man in his interview at http://www.scorenotes.com/

He says he was attached (and was Favreau's choice) but Marvel went with a generic MV score... as with many people he didn't like the result.

Still can't believe Djawadi got this gig :-(

Debney would have ruled this... Damn studio tampering!

Not bad, IMO, but I can't help feel it could've been much better. Though I quite like the end result anyway, hehe.

Well I have to say, the movie and the score blew me away. I wasn't expecting what everyone delivered. However, even though I own the soundtrack, working with music a lot myself, I sometimes find missing pieces with movie scores. There is a lot of music in the film not found on it. Does anyone know of anything being released in the future? They market this album as a soundtrack, not a score.

"Hi guys. Does anyone know what are the tracks mixed together in the animation bettween the end of the film and the credits. One is Black Sabbath - Iron Man but the other?"

Yeah, Kudredin. Here you go:

After that awful Black Sabbath song, there comes THE REAL music! That is:

10. Mark II
01. Driving with Top Down
11. Extra Dry, Extra Olives

Enjoy!

How come I cant find a list of players. Who was the drummer, Guitars, Bass, Orchestra????????? Writing is one thing. Playing another. Why are you not giving credit to the musicians who played the score?

Movie was excellent. Score... hmm... Hans Zimmer with Batman had more punch to it than this, so I would have to say that I'm disappointed - slightly.

I think we can safely say that things could heat up a little more for a sequel. I place my $$ on a better follow through in part II. The only problem?... will Robert Downey Jr. reprise his role or will he figure that the first time out was for an "art" expedition..?

Let's hope he and Gwenyth come back. Excellent chemistry.

Get IM to fight someone with substance... perhaps a war ridden country again but with a diabolical Marvel foe who is behind another arms type operation, which threatens the west again. Hide the foe, generate a political ally, and throw some romance into the second movie... sounds good already!

The movie was great, it was touching, as you say it is was. But the score was totally repeating it's theme all through out the movie maybe not exactly during the touching parts,but I feel that if you really listen it all sounds very similar. so yeah I would have rather listened to a more in touch piece of music,than to have listen to some poor knock off of a cheese B flick from the early 00's. So logical or not, the score still sucks. and theirs nothing anybody can do about it. Except for Top Ramin noodles what ever his name is... Thanks for the reply danny boy.

jay arvada reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-22 00:00:00
THIS score SUCKED bad. Lacked emotional content, and was really flat. Need proof listen to spider man's score, Iron man by Black Sabbath was all this movie needed, to bad we all had to wait until the end of the movie to hear a real piece music. Oh well better luck next time.

Danny reply Replies: 0 || 2008-05-22 00:00:00
SO you're saying that theyb shuld have just hrown out the whole score and just play Iron Man by Black Sabbath the whole time. even during touching moments. Hmmmm...sounds logical.
