He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.
John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !
Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)

OMG Lorne Balfe had his fingers on this!!!!!!!!!

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 6 || 2017-11-08 10:25:46
So what's the story with this one? How did superstar film composer Hans Zimmer, in a year where he also produced the megablockbuster The Dark Knight, come to work on a Mexican comedy so obscure that its Wikipedia article only has one sentence and doesn't mention Hans at all? I guess I'm not surprised it never got released or even leaked cleanly, which is a shame as it's quite a nice score, sort of a spiritual sequel to Spanglish, and all we have is a crappy SFX-filled rip. But this one has always been a bit of a mystery to me...


dirty_score2017-11-08 12:04:38
I wish Hans would spend more time with independent movies instead of blockbusters.


Edmund Meinerts2017-11-08 13:05:47
I agree. Romantic comedies and light dramas are usually not a genre that provides a lot of great scores but Hans has such a good touch for them, his melodic sense really shines in scores like this, The Holiday, Spanglish, As Good as it Gets...


dirty_score2017-11-08 14:54:38
True, even if the movies are a bit fluffy, Hans can really knock it out of the park. I'm still waiting for a proper release of "Something's Gotta Give".

here you have a little part of the story


isildur2017-11-08 23:32:16
I think I remember reading that Hans only charged just one dollar for this movie. Don't know the whole story behind it though. And yes I also find this score quite enjoyable with a really catchy theme. Hans really has a good streak with Rom-Coms.


isildur2017-11-08 23:38:22
lol. I think that second article @Scorefan posted above talks about the dollar thingy "un dolar" I mentioned.

Hybrid, may we know the reason why this beautiful score never got a release? It has so many beautiful melodies :(


smitty2014-08-26 16:50:32
i don't know if you know it, but there is already a dvd-rip out there


Eleonora2014-08-27 14:16:44
yeah i knot it, but it's full with voices and sound-effects. it's totally annoying and doesn't let you enjoy the music when everywhere a door slams, or a car drives.

this music deserves a release :(


Darth2014-08-29 09:30:22
Hybrid: i would like to know aswell. The "Coming Soon" here is so old, i can't even remember when you've posted it.

Any chances for this?

@ Jan-Lee,

thanks for the reply! well, it is possible to rip at worlds end, but compared to casi divas, pirates has a lot of SFX... in other words: it would be a complete hell to listen to a ripped pirates soundtrack because you would hear everythiing: screaming, sea, gun shots, swords and etc.
the advantage with movies like casi divas, is that the SFX is quite low. same with desperate housewives ;)
so im not going to rip pirates, because the sfx would dominate the music. we just have to hope for a promo surfacing!

Adriaan, thanks for ur rip its great, love it. I was wondering if u could do a complete score rip for hans zimmers At worlds end, there is so much music in that movie that needs to be heard properly

thanks

Wow... I never expected people would listen to my rips and take them seriously! But to be honest, this is a good rip (A)
The covers arent mine, I made others myself. For the final cut, I removed some tracks so that score came down to 26 tracks, with little over 40 mins.
This is the front cover I made:

Hi Xinema... I called it CASI DIVAS END 01, and CASI DIVAS END 02... coz are two tracks in ONE THEME, but the first track is the THEME for the DIVAS, and the second theme is for the character performed by Ludwika Paleta... so, for your consideration... called it as you wish... (^^,)
