They all respected the theme of Courage, but each new composer brought a different sub-theme to the franchise.<br>@James  I don't know what you are referring to exactly, but I think that Horner's score in Star Trek II is a great example of a follow up movie score within the same universe. <br>I think all of those movies use the Alexander Courage theme for the original series but they still have some original material of their own and that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes for Batman and Superman. He could have used those in some moments but also keeping some material from BvS and MoS and creating new themes for the new characters and the League.What?! Did Mothersbaugh use a ghost writer?! he he heThis is a kind of Chappie mixed with Arcade of MoS.Hallo,<br>ich hätte eine Frage zu "Man of Steel", Track 2: "Oil Rig".<br>Da ist bei meiner Kaufversion (Download bei google) eine Stimme zu hören bei Sekunde 17 Bevor der Beat losgeht. Es hört sich an wie eine Kinderstimme die "O...O..." ruft. Ich finde es witzig, wüsste aber gerne wie die Stimme da rein kommt.<br>War das Absicht, gibt es eine Story dazu, oder ist es eine Fehler in der Aufnahme?<br>Weiß jemand was dazu?<br><br>LG
cd may have been shipped but ups tracking refrence shows up nothing on there site anyone got an ideas at to why this may be many thanksThe track is unreleased yeah, part of the movie's climax<br>chronologically it goes between Devils Anus and 'Asgard is a People'The Sierra Leone track Andrew K posted (link below)...I almost wonder if that's how 2010s Zimmer would redo The Lion King. More bass, more minimalist, more Interstellar...but still with an African flare.Horner and many others with Star Trek is a good example too.Huh. Well, the music Andrew posted is nice.
"Don't believe everything you hear, son."what do you gyus think about this? <br><br>www . youtube.com/watch?v=9riigqWjovMHallo,<br><br>Der 'Gladiator' ist schon langsam in die Jahre gekommen, die Musik ist aber nicht älter geworden. Genial.<br><br>Gruß  <br><br>Not bad score.<br><br>But I prefer the other oneIsn’t that ironic that DC is abandoning the continuity while Marvel is finally embracing it?<br><br>For any electronic fans out there, this score is definitely a must listen, there are some badass 80’s beats (with a dash of Tron legacy) in here.
I'm so mad at DC right now I'd rather promote Marvel !! lol<br><br><br>Well jokes aside I add cause Andrew worked on it. And btw he posted another 5 min cue on his Soundcloud, dunno if it's unreleased, there'll better specialists of that score than me !Yeah, I happen to have seen the film and the score is not really "coherent", it's more like many different cues put together...Okay, thanks for clearing that up. The Tracks released were kind of interesting, a kind of mix of soundsAnyone else think Hans knew about all the studio meddling during pre-production, the rewrites etc and walked away ? I mean, when I heard Elfman's score I thought it was generic and wouldn't fit the movie. Then I watched the movie and it fits well. The movie is just as bland as the music in the background.I don't have to ask, that movie was a failure that barely got distributed... No one had any interest in releasing this score...

Amazing score by Steve Jablonsky, really good action soundtrack without the need to be noisy, themes like "Hope Runs Deep", puts goosebumps, one of the best score by Jablonsky undoubtedly

MacArthur reply Replies: 11 || 2014-01-06 01:38:23
I just bought this and I love it.


MrZimmerFan2014-01-06 13:31:17
You should listen Gears 3, with Gears 2, both are awesome!


MacArthur2014-01-06 16:02:35
Is the Theme still the same, Love it.


Macejko2014-01-06 16:19:54
I think it's rather dull. Jablonsky can do better.


MrZimmerFan2014-01-06 19:46:21
Macejko, go to listen Ramin Djawadi, Gears of War 2 is one the Jablonsky's Best


Macejko2014-01-06 22:14:02
I cannot understand how someone can name this one of Jablonsky's best, when there are Transformers, Ender's Game of Your Highness out there.


MacArthur2014-01-06 22:19:23
Ramin's stuff is rather dull the only good stuff that he's done is Clash of the Titans & Iron Man (Safe House is Tolerable).

Zimmer's stuff is much better and so is Jablonsky's


Macejko2014-01-06 22:23:36
Classic Schmosby :)


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-07 01:28:34
This score has some great cues (Hope Runs Deep, Armored Prayer) and some awful ones (March of the Horde) but I do like it all in all, certainly more so than Ender's Game. Gears 3 is more consistent but less memorable, also worth a listen though (and yes, same theme).


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-07 02:28:35
Oh, and AVOID Gears of War: Judgment, whatever you do. Pure shit.


MacArthur2014-01-07 02:46:58
Mabye i'll like it it's all preference

Hope Runs Deep is epic!

Ok I was listening to this score this morning and noticed something very interesting. If you listen to track 21 "With Sympathy" on the OST or to track 13 "Dom and Maria" on CD2 of the Complete Score both of those arrangements sound exactly like the song "Defeat (Theme 1)" from The Contender Promo Score. Basically, they're the same track with slightly different orchestrations again an homage to Jablonsky's work on that project.

I actually like the first soundtrack better. Its grittier,sparse has a sense of overwhelming odds and struggle about it just like the characters in the game.. This is bit too too glitzy hollywood for me.

This music is simply epic. I highly recommend this soundtrack. Hope Runs Deep and Rolling Thunder are just two examples of how well Steve took the original theme and added new elements to the works such as the choir. This was something not found of the GoW 1 soundtrack.

highly recommended if you like steves previous works

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2008-12-17 00:00:00
heard the score and it is very good, uses maybe two or three ideas from the first ost (also good) and mixes it with his own style.

Contains a mixture of transformers, command and conquer 3, island, steamboy (only in expanded bootlegg ripped version) and other scores of his previous works. ########

I'm new to this website, but isn't it supposed to be about Hans Zimmer's music?

Why is this soundtrack, not by him, being discussed?

Can someone please explan for me?

thanks

Had a chance to hear the music, really great...a step differently taken when Steve decides to make great music for massive battles.

I have already 3 songs and this promise to be a really good and epic soundtrack.

Lot's of use of choir which makes it really emotional comparing to Kevin Riepls score for Gears 1. Comparable to D-War. His best overal work so far for me...

The score will be released November 25th and not 11th November. A little bad news.

Kaya reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-14 00:00:00
The line between games and films has pretty much faded. Games are more cinematic than ever and demand cinematic qualities like big budget scores. Now that the software allows for full scores composers aren't limited anymore.

I agree that composers like Giacchino, Lennertz and Tilton are examples of small composers getting their start in gaming but TV is also a good starting ground for up and coming composers.

Wow this is great! I did not know Jablonksy was scoring this. It's great that he's working on more projects now. This soundtrack should hold me over until he comes back with Transformers 2 :D

I really like Jablonsky's job but i hate this! And it's not because it's not good music it's just because some years ago, videogames soundtracks were a good starting point for "rookie and amateur" composers (like me). Now, the pros make this kind of soundtracks...?? and what can amateur musicians do now?? :(

I can't wait for this soundtrack. I love [most of] Steve Jablonsky's work. His scores for D-War and Transformers are among the top in my library. The first Gears of War video game score was less than forgettable. Hopefully Jablonsky can work his magic and really make this game unforgettable. Can't wait!

Falconet From Italy reply Replies: 0 || 2008-10-10 00:00:00
i hope that Steve keep the same style of his last score as such D-War and Transformers!
I Cannot Wait!!
