Snyder confirmed that his cut of the film is essentially done, itís just up to WB to release it."For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views."<br><br>Eh, by that definition The Imperial March would also be a power anthem, and I'd question that (to put it lightly). I don't think popularity has much to do with a definition of a type of music really. Rather I'd say a power anthem is a bold, muscular, relatively simple and often rock/pop-influenced theme that builds up and gets bigger and bigger over time, the prototype being Hans Zimmer's theme from Crimson Tide. And Balfe has written plenty of them. Whether they're good or not is something that can be debated, but e.g. the opening track of PR:U definitely fits the criteria of a power anthem for me.Power Anthems!!!!!! Is this the 1980s again!!!im the first to love a great tune but we are in another decade now.<br><br>Talking of tunes , Balfes best is still Ohís Theme from Home.Balfe writes epic themes constantly<br>==================<br><br>Epic themes, yes.<br><br>Actual power anthems on par with Now We Are Free and My Name is Lincoln......No. In my opinion.but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion<br>=============<br><br>My point as well.
Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem<br>=============<br><br>Clearly we have a different understanding of what a "power anthem" is. For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views.<br><br>None of the tracks in the Hurricane Heist score can compare to these power anthems. None. Same goes for 12 Strong, PacRim 2 and (lol) Lego Batman. Only 13 Hours comes close. And that's because Michael Bay is the type of director who loves and demands power anthems (and thank God for that). It's no wonder that some of the most famous power anthems come from his movies...<br><br>I'm not saying all of that to undermine Balfe. It's just my personal observation.Balfe writes epic themes constantly.Assassins Creed,Beyond Two Souls,Geostorm are just some examples.Track 1 of PR: U is a power anthem, Brothers from Hurricane Heist is a power anthem, 12 Strong is a bit iffy as a lot of them aren't full anthems and more like action cues that go on for a bit. But I would disagree on the bad themes, I really enjoy the Brothers theme from HH (best moments in the score is when it crops up) and the main theme from PR: U, but aside from that they're not his best works.Hope you keep the staff ratings though, its useful for me as a lot of the people here have similar musical tastes to me and it helps to find ones that I might like.i wouldn't say, that Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist and 12 Strong have power anthems. all 3 don't have even good themes. they are ok and they are the best part in every score, but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion.
Lorne is not a power anthem guy? What are you talking about? Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem. To name a few: MI: Fallout, Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist, 12 Strong, Lego Batman and Duck Shoot from The Crown.That's not what I meant. Just curious if anyone on the site has any new credits from asking the additional composers about this film.Thank Christ lol. That voting booth was good for absolutely nothing.Shazam is going to be released, by WaterTowerInfo*
no infi on shazam still huhand Zimmer was also involved in this movie as if it was in the previous ones?<br>======================<br><br>Hmm, I don't think Hans was involved here. He helped on TF4 and did some work on TF2 (to what extent I don't know) but that's pretty much it. Then again, Hans seems to be always around when it's a Michael Bay production.... :)and Zimmer was also involved in this movie as if it was in the previous ones?Really waiting for this soundtrack and hope Wallfisch will bring new vision into Hellboy universe.@Hybrid thanks a lot for your answers and your detective work!<br>Funny to see that Lorne does that much uncredited help (I know itís only the tip of the iceberg, and that he isnít the only one, as Bayhem said the rcp composers must help each other every time...)

Hybrid do you know what Henry did on this score? His cue list on ASCAP for it has been deleted.


Hybrid Soldier2019-03-14 19:53:03
Not deleted, it was just never added...

Did anyone noticed that the guitar cue when Hancock and Mary are dying is similar to Powell's showreel's "Music for the End of the World - Face, Hope and Charity", with a different arrangement ?

It's really interesting, because John Powell used many of the demos from his 1998's showreel in his career during the last 10 years (and especially from his "Music for the End of the World".
This is the case for Antz, Chicken Run, Just Visiting, Hancock and now Bolt ! A great part of his career is made out of this showreel's ideas.

iluminat I guess you're talking about the sound when he's alone in his trailer... It's my favourite too :p
It's called : Rachel's - Water From the Same Source
Enjoy

I don't know if it's going to be unreleased score or a song, but nothing from that scene is on the soundtrack.

As Cloud mentioned, check IMDB.

The one piece of unreleased music that stood out to me was the movie version of "The Trailer". Totally different from what's on the CD and much, much better.

Amazing soundtrack, as always from one of my fave composers! I was just bummed to see the cue with the cello is not in it, that sort of mellow one that happens about 1/3rd into the movie...

This soundtrack is very exciting. Great work, oh yes. Itīs been a pleasure, Mr. Powell.

Lono, the cue you mention (the Superman knock-off) is unreleased.

Lono reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-21 00:00:00
Anthony - thanks for your comment, but I actually meant the music that starts before the Superman-esque cue. It is more of a low pitched growling affair that builds as the robbers are shooting at the police, then ends on the shot of the robber holding the deadman switch. The generic superhero cue starts a few seconds after this.

I guess it's fated to remain unreleased also though... Shame. Powell excels in that vein of suspense/tension cues, a la Face/Off.

Lono reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-20 00:00:00
There is a cue in the film that starts when Hancock is in prison and is told he has a phone call from the Chief of Police, builds while he is shaving, then bridges into the siege outside the bank. This was my favourite piece of music in the whole score, yet it is not on the soundtrack album. Does anyone have any information?

Thanks in advance,

Lono

The Moon and The Superhero is gonna be one of the best Powell tracks of the year, I can tell. The rest of the score is pretty good too, though it's not really the kind of stuff I like to play a lot. 3.5 out of 5 I guess.

The beginning of that excerpt of track 19 reminds me a bit too much of Elfman's Spider-Man score, but other than that it sounds like a great score.
