@Hybrid is this the combination of FYC promotional score + official release by LLL?Use your hybrid skills to unravel the mysteries of the score.Cuesheet is blank.oh yes please, including Balfe - don´t start yelling, I´m just really curious who did whatFinally! It would be nice to have composers credits
@DT<br>Disney definitely tries to put quality into their projects, which is why I admire them. As you’ve said, WDAS and Pixar are both churning out some excellent and original films. Even Marvel, despite its formula and flaws, tries new things with the films and stick closely to the source material. <br><br>The problem with the remakes is that they seem to be nothing more than cash-grabs that prey on nostalgia. If you are going to retell a beloved story at least try something different and exciting, instead of trying to copy/paste what everyone has seen.This is where I wish we could edit our comments.<br><br>Not only do you have WDAS doing mostly-new movies (I hesitate to say 'original') but you have Pixar doing them as well. Toy Story 4 was their last sequel for the foreseeable future, with them even eschewing the popular option of doing an Inside Out sequel for original projects.I feel like people are overreacting in a way that suggests these remakes have far more power than they actually do. The studio that makes them is separate from every other studio. WDAS is still creating new content and will be for many, many years to come, long after the remakes have had their heyday.<br><br>If anything, the proliferation of superhero films is far more likely to drown out originality on that front: there are multiple studios doing it.Order I went with for the album<br><br>Everything I Need (Film Version)<br>Arthur		<br>Home Invasion (Bonus Track)<br>It Wasn't Meant To Be<br>Permission To Come Aboard<br>Ask the&#8239;Sea (Bonus Track)<br>Atlantean Soldiers<br>Ahab Waves (Bonus Track)<br>Saving Pops (Bonus Track)	Soundtrack	0	1<br>Swimming Lessons	<br>Kingdom of Atlantis<br>The Legend of Atlan	<br>The Ring of Fire	<br>What Does That Even Mean?Soundtrack	0	<br>Obligation (Bonus Track)	<br>Dunes (Bonus Track)	<br>Map In a Bottle<br>Mera&#8239;Montage	<br>The Black Manta	<br>Trench Engaged (From Kingdom of the Trench)	Soundtrack	0	<br>Reunited		<br>What Could Be Greater Than a King?<br>Suited and Booted		<br>Between Land and Sea		<br>He Commands the Sea	<br>Ocean To Ocean (feat.

The cue I want the most is “We Strike First”.
@Edmund<br>I can’t agree enough. These remakes suffer from the issue of being inferior to the original source material, mainly because they rely so heavily on copying the originals so heavily. I’m not necessarily against Disney updating their classics if they are willing to do new takes on the material. Take Jungle Book for example; they were able to do something fresh with the concept while keeping elements of the animated film. Even Maleficent, which I’m not crazy about, tried something new. <br><br>Another BIG issue I’ve noticed is the fact that they lean towards hiring actors who cannot sing, or at least cannot sing on the level required. Emma Watson, Will Smith, Chiwetel Ejiofor, etc.Best shot <br>It wasnt meant to be<br>Home invasion<br>Ahab waves (0:39-end)<br>Permission to come aboard?<br>Ask the sea<br>Ahab waves (0:00-0:38)<br>Saving pops<br>Swimming lessons<br>Kingdom of atlantis<br>Legend of atlan<br>Ring of fire<br>What does that even mean?<br>Ocean to ocean<br>Obligation<br>Dunes<br>Map in a bottle<br>Black manta<br>Mera montage<br>Between land and sea<br>Trench engaged<br>What could be greater than a king?<br>Suited and booted<br>He commands the sea<br>Reunited<br>Everything i need<br><br>"Arthur" and "Atlantean Soldiers" are probably suitesJust want shrike death cue!I feel as though Menken did a bit more to differentiate his 2017 Beauty and the Beast from the 1991 one. The major pieces like "Prologue" and "Transformation" were left relatively intact but otherwise the rewrite was a bit more substantial than what Zimmer and crew did here. Compare the final battle music from the original (which consists to a large degree of upbeat instrumental versions of "Be Our Guest") to the remake (which is largely serious, straightforward orchestral action music). I haven't heard his new Aladdin so I'm not sure what the old:new ratio was there.<br><br>I'm not necessarily complaining, this is basically what I expected the score would be from the moment it was announced. The problem lies deeper, with the entire premise of these pointless remakes that allow very little wiggle room for freshness or creativity. Of course, I have no doubt this movie will make north of a billion dollars and give the Disney execs further license to print money. Maybe by the time they've remade every single film in their vault enough time will have passed that they can just start from the beginning again and nobody need ever be subject to the indignity of an original story ever again.It's a variation of the theme Anthem from the first Top Gun film by Harold Faltermeyer.
whats the name of the song being played in this trailer?<br>is it available onlineThis is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.

Yes, way to go, Hans! It's great that he gets the recognition he deserves. It's about time to have him nominated again since Gladiator.

Yes Giacchino has made a wonderful score but I think you are in mistake...Sherlock Holmes has a great ideas that have never been used before!

I hate to admit that I am only recently (being in the last two years) a fan of Hans Zimmer, but only because I didn't really learn to appreciate the music in films until then. Now, however, I love Hans Zimmer more than anything and his music brings me to heights in which I cannot even describe. This soundtrack is no acception...it is simply incredible. I love the new techniques he uses with not having necessarily the "big band" sound, like in the Pirates movies, but with single instrumentational sounds. It just blows me away. He is the definition of a musical genius.

Daniel reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-29 00:00:00
Adrian,

Thanks for the reply. If that is the case, that is unfortunate because that means I'll probably never get a copy of the track. :-/ If anyone else has any thoughts on the issue, I'd love to hear them.

As for Dredger, I think he actually *is* French, and Sherlock knew that from the first word that Dredger speaks (English, but with a French accent) upon his arrival in the midget's house. The joke then, is that the 'muscle' of the bad guys is actually quite cultural and respectful of honor. I think this is the case given his look of respect when he sees that Sherlock can fight, as well as their continued banter in French. Plus, think about it - why would a London street level thug speak French if he was English? ;)

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-28 00:00:00
@ Daniel
If I'm correct the dude is not French, he just happens to speak French... How would Sherlock even know he is French? I think that's joke! Or am I wrong?

As for the music... When I heard it, I assumed it was Hans... The score in the film is million times longer than on this CD, so the chance is big it's a Zimmer-piece that wasn't put on the disc.

Daniel reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-27 00:00:00
I'm a bit confused, and would really appreciate any help anyone could give. In the movie, during the 1st fight scene with Dredger (the big Frenchman), an Irish-sounding piece of music plays. It has no lyrics, and is not credited separately in the credits at the end of the movie. Is this a piece that HZ wrote that he just didn't put on the soundtrack? I really enjoyed it, as short as it was, and if anyone recognized what it is I would really appreciate your help.

~Daniel~

Plz note: I'm *not* talking about Rocky Road to Dublin.

About Sherlock Holmes 5.1

File this one under "Why Even Bother?!" As per the instructions included in the CD;

Instructions For Downloading and Playing 5.1 Surround Files

1. Go to exclusive website using enhanced CD and click on button to download 5.1 Surround Sound Files
2. Unzip the file "SherlockSurround.zip"
3. Import WAV files and burn audio CD using any burning software (iTunes, Nero, Toast, etc.)
4. Play disc in any home theater system that supports 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic ll audio

Don't waste your time. The actual CD sounds virtually indistinguishable from the "PLll surround encoded" burned disc. Both played via HDMI (PCM stream) to receiver with PLll decoding. Comparing the wav file images from both enhanced CD and dowloaded files (via Wavasaur) reveal no difference - they are both stereo 16/44 files. The music itself while I'm sure complimentary to the viewing of the film, does not really stand up well on its own (IMO).

If you want to enjoy multichannel download files you are much better off buying the grammy nominated David Huber's "Colab" disc from CD Baby (there is also a DTS CD available). The 5.1 MP3 files are actually multichannel and decode VERY discretely.

You would think that with the resources available to Warner Bros and multi Acadamy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer, they could come up with something more sophisticated than this fairy dust - especially when compared to the efforts of someone like Mr. Huber who is self released and has what appears to be very limited resources.

Totally understand you there, Matthew. Sometimes there'll be a lot of music in an actual movie that isn't in the released soundtrack, which is also the case with all three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, sadly.

no, I'm yust talking about the release cd. rotf is too short. it's almost like a yoke. but avatar has 14 tracks too yust like rotf and it's so long. so who did this with the trans 2 score cd? Length : 43'56???? ohhhh yust great!! and the cd is only about optimus. yeah I know the movie is about optimus...

Mich reply Replies: 0 || 2010-01-17 00:00:00
Was someone saying Hans Zimmer had something to do with the Avatar soundtrack? I thought James Horner composed that?
I can't see Mr. Zimmer doing a movie like Avatar. Dunno why, but it just doesn't seem his thing.

And Matthew, I'm not sure what sound exactly you're referring to, but I can tell you different instruments make all kinds of weird sounds when played different ways, so there's really no unique sound that "belongs" to any one movie. More specifically, every composer has unique styles and quirky techniques, so maybe you're hearing some similarities between the two tracks, which is completely possible.
