The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.
Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.
2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST.

"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

Is it "true" the main theme was composed by HZ? Or is this just an urban legend. Considering this is a JB production; i imagine HZ was at the very least considered and possible involved in some way? Thanks!

Macejko reply Replies: 2 || 2012-12-09 21:22:00
I have a question, which was in my mind for a long time: didn't they consider Ramin Djawadi for this one? Because Prince of Persia would be a great fit for him, considering he is part iranian (persian).


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-10 12:02:26
Djawadi grew up in Germany, didn't he? Just because he has Iranian roots doesn't automatically make him the right choice. Correct me if I'm wrong but I THINK that the Persia shown in this movie probably has some slight differences to modern-day Iran. ;)


Macejko2012-12-10 12:31:50
You are, of course, right in every way, but I believe he knows a lot about iranian culture. I was just wondering, nothing more.

Exactly as I expected, boring musics...

Disney's composer choice was wrong. Music Composer should be Stuart Chatwood & Hans Zimmer.

I advice everybody to listen of Stuart Chatwood's Prince of Persia game-series soundtrack compositions from Youtube.


Snake2011-06-06 05:11:53
pureocean.

This is an amazing score. Too bad for you that you haven't listened to the soudtrack well. Not every score should have epic tracks. NO! Because if it has them, the score would be boring!!!! This score has everything that every film score should have; relaxed, serious, dramatic and epic tracks among others which means this score is very complete and selective. Like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Not every movie should have Hans Zimmer in charge of the music department (even I'm a fan of him). Besides, Zimmer wouldn't work with Chatwood because he only works with his disciples and former disciples such as Henry Jackman, Steve Jablosnky, Ramin Djawadi and even Harry Gregson-Williams himself. This was the right decision from Disney to put Harry Gregson-Williams in charge of the music because he's very well prepared for every film genre including this one and because he has experience working in the videogame industry if you didn't know and that's reason why I think it was the right decision for this movie. And by the way, the music from the game is good, but not that good. For the game, I always thought that Chatwood wasn't the right choice as a composer and Ubisoft should have included Michael Giacchino, Jeremy Soule or even Gregson-Williams because of their previous works in the videogame industry. Also, Chatwood only works on videogames, not in films.

Actually, it is a great score; but not everyone has the same taste...are you sure you listened carefully :) I have to say, it is one of the best scores Harry Gregson-Williams has produced since Narnia. I think it deserves much praise!

I've been listening to the soundtrack over and over again and I can admitt that I love it!!

There are a lot of things that identify HGW as its composer - like it's own mark on the music, Hans has it as well - and there are some particular themes I love! There is one in particularlly that reminds me something though I can't quite put my finger on it!

However, loved the soundtrack.

I've heard it before watching the movie - a thing I like a lot - and I couldn't wait till I watched the movie and give my opinion about it as a whole.

As for the movie; well, I'm not a fan of the video-game - never played it before - but I loved the movie every much! It's very Disney and Jerry, if you know what I mean, and adding this wonderful score gives an epic dimension to the movie.

Great Jobs Harry and thank you for the amazing music you've created... ^_^

Sounds really good so far! The movie was awesome! Haven't had time to listen to the whole thing yet, but does anyone know if the music when Dastan uses The Dagger for the first time is on here? Possibly The Dagger's theme? Maybe it's "This Is No Ordinary Dagger?" Loved the music at that part, awesome.

There are lots of 'borrowings' from other scores (HGW and others). But it works quite well in the movie. Especially to someone that doesn't know who HGW is (like my friends;).

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-24 00:00:00
Miles, I think what that person is referring to is the similarities between a small portion of the theme that starts around 0:37 in track 1 of Prince of Persia, and the love theme in Mummy Returns. Though it's too small to be called "Copy".

I too agree with HGW4, this is one of the better Gregson-Williams in recent years. I don't consider myself a hardcore Gregson-Williams fan, but I even enjoyed the bits that many people are calling "generic".

Two thumbs up!
