Yeah, I always thought that would be the case for the Academy Awards. Don't know about others but if it's not eligable for the Oscars I can't see Disney submitting it for consideration at any other awards either. Could be wrong - I have the vague notion BATB got an FYC despite being ineligable.<br><br>Best thing to hope for is either a leak of the 'sessions' or a future official expanded score release.John Powell composing the eternals would be a dream come true. It’d be so amazing. I also want Lorne to compose a super hero movie but he has yet to do one which is very odd considering how popular he isvery underrated score - you can't change my mindHenry Jackman seems to be composing Black Widow, it's great news. The bad thing is that Joseph Trapanese composes The Eternals, would have preferred Powell or has one of the Gregson Williams brothers (preferably Harry).Zimmer himself confirmed on Facebook that this score wouldn't be eligible.
What a beautiful score... The 'Opening Titles' is probably one of HG-W's best dramatic pieces. Very beautiful and haunting, and overall a great showcase of Harry's dramatic sensibilities. I remember reading somewhere that he's very proud of this score, and it's not hard to understand why if you listen to it.but the lion king is preexisting music that has previously won an Oscar. I don’t see that happening againHave you listened to Star Wars: The Last Jedi? <br>That was nominated and had tons of pre-existing musicI'd be very surprised if Disney submits an FYC for this score. Surely it would fall afoul of the "too much pre-existing music" rule and they wouldn't even bother.Maybe we get a FYC album
The Guardian confirmed it. Oct 27. Great if there is a album release at the time."All the time"? I'm pretty sure this is my first comment on a Balfe score this year.Just watching this movie again, and I hope that someday they will release an expanded score editionEdmundo - you always stalk anyone complimenting a Balfe project for some reason?<br><br>Really boring your negative comments all the timeEdmund what is wrong with you ? Using childish language is pathetic. “Jizzing” is an idiotic term.If some of us like his music the why does it irritate you.You sound like a jealous failed composer always complaining when he releases a soundtrack.
Why do the Balfe loveres waste so much time jizzing over his music. Always comes of [sic] sounding like a 13-year-old fanboy discovering the internet for the first time I think.Why do the Balfe haters waste so much time moaning about his music.Always comes of sounding like an ex bitter employe I think.Gemini is as good as Fallout but it’s very cool.Great film with a classic of the best action soundtracks this year.The film was though a bit slow and one one good action scene.and yet again, a half-baked score like every other score of him :(Cool music in this film and some of the best action sequences I have ever seen.lorne is the best at action music

Anthony have you not a end? It's hard understand you ... You're not to understand music (I have all cd by Zimmer and Powell and I know the two different style) don't write anymore please.

No name It seems like action parts were written by Powell and "non-action" by Zimmer. Great score by the way (and great theme - I think it`s composed by Zimmer, too). )
You're understand perfect!!!

This soundtrack is pure awesomeness. I have all of it on my MP3, and it's just so wonderful I made a list of adjectives describing it:

Beautifully made

If music like this was ever made again into something better by Zimmer, I know it would rock. He IS the greatest composer of all time. Of course, Powell did a good job too.

Fantastic orchestration and the John Powell's percussion in 'Hero' and 'Let The Tournament Begin' are magnificently impressive.

While Simmer and Powell combine to conceive the best possible score for a Chinese tradition musical extravaganza from track to track and excellently maintaining the martial arts tempo throughout, what impresses most is that their the range and variety of work are amazing.

Drums pown it up in my opinion, they are the best insturment out there. Drums are way better then other instrumental grandeur, especially that of oboe and alto flutes, because brass section solos are way to common.

The best percussion I ever heard. Oh yeah!

The track 'Sacred Pool of Tears' and the theme in the same way are perfect fusion of Zimmer's style and Powell style. Good work!

Hear to Ice Age 2 and you will recognize the Powell stile in Kung Fu Panda. But I can hear some Hans Zimmer, too. :-) Great Score

It is sad that the best part is missing from the album. When the Furious Five is going to meet Tai Lung, on the rooftops they go. Fantastic percusions!!!!

Listening to the Credits, I feel there's only a slight variation in the percussion section but it's more or less same as that on the album (at least more similar than the Davy Jones' album and film music! XD) Even though I haven't seen the film yet, I have a feeling we have most of the good stuff on CD. This is gonna remain one of the best scores of 2008! ;-)

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-21 00:00:00
And methinks Powell and Big Z share a fair amount of material on the score, several portions have their signature styles IMO!

Anthony reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-15 00:00:00
Great, but I still don't understand what you're talking about.

My original post "You 'ear incorrectly! :p" was a play on words, but I think you've taken it the wrong way. :)

Don't make a problem Anthony... I'm verry happy if you ear very well the music

Well, Kung Fu Fighting is different on this clip (very Powellish in fact) but nothing is new about the rest. I think we already have all good pieces on the album. Still I liked that clip. Very well made and creative!

Jack reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-13 00:00:00
Yeah! It seems that some percussions have been added at the beginning of the song. Nothing more.
Do you think that John Powell arranged it?

Sylvos reply Replies: 0 || 2008-06-13 00:00:00
Those percussions are unmistakably John Powell's arrangements, Jack. He uses this special percussion alot for his scores. I think it's one of the many trademarks of a John Powell music.

Hybrid Soldier, I think you gotta check this clip out too. There is a lengthy list of music credits at the end that could make its way to this page! ;-)

It's the first time of my life I can see complete End Credits before I see the film LOL...

Oh sorry Mathias, you're right. It's ALL Hans Zimmer...
