Jackman has always been my favorite of his "generation" of RC composers (in which I also include Balfe, Djawadi, Örvarsson, Margeson and Streitenfeld - the ones who broke out about a decade ago). I think he's the best orchestral writer other than Powell and I always appreciate the clean, organic sound of his scores - like with Powell's scores, Jackman's orchestra always sounds real and clearly distinct from the electronics, unlike Balfe and Zimmer himself who use samples a lot more and blur things in the middle. That's true even of scores of his I don't like, such as Winter Soldier.<br><br>I do wish he'd stop stripping the electronics off of tracks for his album releases though. That seems like a strange way to address the criticisms he got for Winter Soldier - kind of missing the point.Any plans for a concert in Denmark (Boxen, Herning) ?I like this score!!!<br><br>Henry is very good in my opinion. I always liked his scores even when others didn't.<br><br>And I'm really excited for Jumanji: The Next Level!!!Neither Romer or Balfe are scoring Bond 25I want to say that test screening version of Ghost in the Shell deleted one geisha character who was under orders of Cutter to follow the Major  and in the original third act, she fought Aramaki when he stormed into Cutter's Holo room after killing his guards. Aramaki survives and the scene continues as shown. Because of the poor reception of what I call "The Philosophical Cut", the geisha character was removed and there were quick reshoots of all of  the conversations between Cutter and Aramaki minus the geisha character involvement.
The report about Romer leaving wasn't even confirmed, so I think it's just people wanting the expected to happen at this point.lol no he’s notLast week, the IMDb page said Joseph Trapanese is scoring it and next week some other composer will probably be listed there. Amazing that some people still think of IMDb as a reliable source for this kind of info.More Cannons!, 2:14 - Jack Sparrow theme from PotC?Ramin Djawadi will compose The Eternals
Well, "No Time To Die" (Bond 25) is being scored by Dan Romer. So, No; he is not scoring it.This is Balfe’s best music yet for sure and shows a side to his musical skills we don’t get to hear much I think.<br>It’s been interesting reading posts about Balfe doing Bond.Has he confirmed yet if he is ?Why would I ever do that ?<br><br><br>Tracklist is the real one... -_-New trailer for the Sonic movie.<br>https://youtu.be/szby7ZHLnkAIs there any chance of a concert in London?
i mean, the page, would you update with the tracklist posted years ago?What.Un artiste qui a une force mais d'une puissance ! Bravo depuis la France !@Hybrid would you update the complete score with the new tracklist? Thankswhat happened here?. Track 4 Bunker Bust and Track 14 River mission are the exact same track. The game itself has a couple of good themes that didn't make it onto the album.

Was the music made before the visual effects throughout the whole movie? It sure seems like it the way everything just forms together. My favorite part? Don't have one but the absolute beginning part of the movie with the loud, heavy brass was tremendously powerful and moving. I sure would love it if a sequel is made!

Anyone who thinks Inception is stupid is ridiculous. Social Network was good but at the end it was like Okay, while Inception with its dream concepts, sleek and special effects; it was on another level. When I saw Inception everyone in the theater went crazy for that ending.could anyone have directed Social Network and come up with something similar? hmmm YES. could anyone have directed Inception and come up with something so groundbreaking and amazing? NO! Nolan is doing things these days that no-one is doing. For god sakes he took Batman and made enough people outraged that it wasn’t up for BEST PICTURE!

They will nominate Inception and the Social Network for score, but they will not win this category. They have to nominate this soundtrack beacuse are part of the best picture nominees, just for that. Both movies has greats scores, but to be Fair, Honestly and a truly movies soundtrack lover, the score of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON(John Powell), SHOULD GET THE OSCAR. Is an extraoirdinary score. For me, the best score since the Lion King or the Lord of the Rings(WHAT MAKES A CLASSIC). Is a must-hear-score...and of course the movie.

@Mike,

I'm guessing you didn't read my post to Hybrid Soldier, Oneill & Levente. UNLESS The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences changes the ruling of nominating multiple composers for the same work, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross will not get a nomination. I will bring this up this again, why do you think Gladiator & The Dark Knight weren't even nominated? Becuase they weren't solely Hans Zimmer. He had Lisa Gerrard on Gladiator, and James Newton Howard on The Dark Knight. It will not happen.

MIKE reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-18 00:00:00
what?? but then, how was The Hurt Locker nominated for his score(it has two composers)?Answer: Because it was nominated for Best Picture. It was just for that, It wasn't a remarkable score (It was a surprise at that time).And I remenber very well the nomination for Hans Zimmer's Gladiator score, the TDK was another issue.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-18 00:00:00
Hmm...maybe. That could be. Because along with The Hurt Locker, Avatar & Up were other films that were nominated for both Best Picture & Original Score. I never noticed this. Well, I found the ruling for nominating a score, have a look. So maybe I was right - it looks like they did change it, as I mentioned below. The A.M.P.A.S. must have changed the ruling.

@Dakota

Well you see it doesn't matter how many times I listen this score it always lets me down. Almost a failure. :(
The last tim ein the past 5 years Zimmer impresed my was Angels & Demons only and only. You could wonder how many times I waited a great soundtrack from "the German".
Maybe that is also I have mixed feelings for this one, not to mention Megamind, which I thought a funny score, but still nothing special.
I'm still impresed by others who says Inception best of the year, Oscar for him!
Narnia, How to Train, Tron, The Last Airbender, Salt, The Expendables for me the years best.
But if Inception gets a nomination, I'll only cheer for Zimmer if Powell will not get a nomination. :)

The Megamind CD presention is pretty bad... Even Lorne agrees with me on that !

The score has heard in film is much much better (there's just half of the score on CD) ! :S

I completely agree with Dakota, HOW COULD INCEPTION WIN NO GOLDEN GLOBE?!!! NOT FOR MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA IS OUTRAGEOUS, BUT FOR MUSIC, JUST NO... ¬¬
Ah, whatever, it doesn't matters if it wins or not awards, what it matters is that it's one of the best (or THE BEST) movie(s) and soundtrack(s) EVER

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-17 00:00:00
Agreed. It's just such an awesome movie. I was hoping it would win ALL the Globes it was nominated for, but it was The Stupid Network that won instead. Well, there's always the Academy Awards. And Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross will not even get nominated due to academy regulations, so there's a plus =)

@Dakota,

I also heard the rumor that the score to "The Social Network" would be disqualified from the Oscar running (from slashfilm.com), but I was unable to find official information on the net about that getting DQed. I think it's still in the running which really ticks me off. I think the judges at the Academy Awards are as stupid and easily swayed by popularity as the ones at the Golden Globes are.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-17 00:00:00
Actually, who cares about Awards ?


Only the music matters... You can't listen to awards... Great music, you CAN ! :)

@Hybrid,

It's just that we want to see our (atleast mine) favorite composers win for their outstanding achievement, ie Hans Zimmer for Inception. My favorite film and score of 2010.

@Oneill & Levente,

It will be disqualified as far as the contenders for Best Original Score, because it is Trent & Atticus. They don't credit multiple composers for one score. An that IS why Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard couldn't get an Oscar nom for Gladiator, or Hans & James Newton Howard for The Dark Knight. And Levente, in your opinion it's not a fantastic score. To me, it is. I've heard How To Train Your Dragon is very very good, but I still haven't seen it. I'll have to watch it soon & download the soundtrack. Anyway, if Inception gets a nomination I hope with all my heart is wins.

Levente reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-17 00:00:00
"The Social Network" could be disqualified from the Oscar since two people are credited to scoring it. And it is possible that the amount of music is misisng for each credit. For example Lisa Gerrard wasn't nominated for Gladiator since she didn't had the amount of music credited to her. If you have the DVD listen the commentary by Russel Crow and Ridley Scott they talk about it.

And I knew this score (Inception) wouldn't win. This isn't a fantastic score, it is only a well amde soundtrack that fits perfectly for the movie. Nothing special. If I had to chose I would say: Powell - How to train Your Dragon.

The Inception Music is fantastic!! It fits perfectly to the film! Simly great! Thanks!!!!

I bought the special edition version of the DVD of Inception and was extremely pleased to see that the 5.1 soundtrack is on the second disk. I hoped that the disk may have also included these tracks in MP3 format so I can play them while out and about (when not able to carry a dvd player!). I will probably pick up a copy of the soundtrack on CD though as it really is once of the most fantastic film scores I've ever heard, since listening to these tracks I have also downloaded the iphone/ipod app, if you haven't already it is well worth checking out if you are a fan of the music.

@iceboy couldnt agree more about the bootlegs thing

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-09 00:00:00
Actually, we never had bootleg issues here with RCP people...

I just remember an email from Jim Dooley requesting us to remove a Pushing Daisies promo page, as his score for season was about to come out... So we did...

Or Disney (lol) asking for us to remove extracts...

But you know, bootlegs are not an issue for composers... They are for the studios which own the music rights...

Hans, Lorne and some others I know have never complained about that, and actually some do think it's quite funny (lol)... It's more like they close their eyes, "not seen, not taken" ! :P

@Dakato, in response to "And, how is it? Worth a look? Any SFX?"

No SFX at all. The track "Inception" is the real treat, featuring the end credits in lossless quality (ie not ripped from DVD). The suite is nice, but nothing really new there, and the trailer music is great too, also in good quality. Its a step up from the commercial album but nothing amazing.

@Anone, in response to "can you guys all stop talking about bootlegs ALL THE TIME it's really annoying. The album is for listening to and the rest of the music is in the film."

I guess your love of the music isnt as great as ours, who want to be able to listen to a complete score without dialog or FX. Theres nothing wrong at all with that wish. Its so disappointing when you find a commercial CD is lacking music or is mixed differently. For example, Edelman's score to xXx is terrible on the commercial CD - its clipped, completely out of sequence, is missing around 70% of the music and some of the music on there isnt even in the film. Whilst the 2CD bootleg is in film order, contains all the right music, is not mastered overly loud and is complete. Its so much better. Granted not every score release is as badly arranged as that but sometimes a bootleg is all you need.

Hybrid, does Hans ever visit here and see all the comments that we leave? I'm just curious, I hope he knows how much of us love his work and could not live without it. I think he is the greatest composer ever.

But trust me he has NO interest in bootleg discussions like you just keep doing around Dakota !! :S

Anon reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-08 00:00:00
Yet music is music! I mean, I get it because it's a legal issue and Hans wouldn't want to deal in anything like that. But, from a certain stand point, wouldn't composers want their work heard rather than bought? It can go in the same boat I guess.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-01-08 00:00:00
yeah can you guys all stop talking about bootlegs ALL THE TIME it's really annoying. The album is for listening to and the rest of the music is in the film. Hans decides what goes on the album and what doesnt. For sure sometimes theres cues in the film that I wish were on the album (Maelstrom from at world's end comes to mind) but it's no big deal.
