MMichaels LOL!!! You have no idea about film musicFantastic score by Balfe.Best action score writer to come from RCP since Powell for sure .It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.<br>=======================<br><br><br>Well said! <br><br>Agreed.I've demanded for it to be removed a long time ago... Maybe in 10 years, who knows...RIP to a legend....<br><br>Just rewatched Coach Carter a few weeks back. It hits all the same notes you would expect out of a feel good sports movie, but the performances and real life story really add a lot to it, as does Rabin’s score.
Listening to Rabin's two powerful "basketball scores" - this one and Glory Road. In memory of the great Kobe! RIP, legend!Honestly man, I never understood this site's ratings either.For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!
Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!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..... lol

S**t! Kingdom of Heaven mixed with Narnia. And I've only listened 30 sec fragments.

HGW is now at the same level as Jablonsky and other Zimmer-clones. Too bad, he was my favorite post-Zimmer composer (next to Powell).

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-05 00:00:00
It are just 30 sec samples. You can't say it's a bad album based on such small samples.

To have an opinion you should have listened for at least 5 times to the album. And preferably watched the movie too...

I dont see how you clowns cant see every composer sounds like himself. Its called a a voice morons.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-05 00:00:00
I didn't hear anything that sounded like a copy. But yes, of course HGW's scores would have common elements to them. Even John Powell and James Newton Howard have certain styles which come through in their composing. And how can you not expect this to sound similar to Kingdom of Heaven, given that it's set in the same geographic area?

Yeah ! Great !! :-)

what? reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-05 00:00:00
I respect the fact that composers have a voice but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about not bothering to come up with a new theme for a new movie. When I watch Prince of Persia i want to hear an original PRINCE OF PERSIA theme, not a remixed version of one of the tracks from Kingdom of Heaven. It's not the composer's "voice" it's just a lack of originality.

Horner is worse though, because the 4-note theme he uses in 90% of his scores wasn't even composed by himself - it's the theme from Rachmaninov's first Symphony.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-05 00:00:00
I sincerely hope this board doesn't degenerate into another free-for-all like with "Clash of the Titans"...

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-04 00:00:00
He is turning into Horner. He even used that four note danger motif of Horner's in the third Shrek score: Track 7, "Charmed and Dangerous", starting from 0:34.

what? reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-04 00:00:00
Anybody else notice that the main theme is a straight re-use of a phrase from Kingdom of Heaven?

Lets hope Harry isn't turning into James Horner. Lets not forget that "The Battle of Kerak" and "The Battle" from LWW have the exact same opening dozen bars.

Kingdom of Heaven is a truly amazing and great score :)
still i want to hear what streitenfeld have for robin hood, i think hes music is quite lovley =)

Cloud reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-02 00:00:00
Both, actually ;) I'd say Kingdom of Heaven is HGW's magnum opus and based on the preview clips this could be very good too. So if I was Ridley Scott, I'd definitely stick with Harry on Robin Hood. But let's not condemn Streitenfeld just yet. The things he has done for Scott's movies have been rather functional so far and the clips from Robin Hood actually sound promising to my ears.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-05-02 00:00:00
I think he means Kingdom of Heaven, actually. This score sounds good so far--a little bombastic in some places but still very well-written! Looking forward to it!

Nice cover. The release is still 2 months away so I guess we'll have to wait a bit more for the track lengths and sound clips. But it should be well worth the wait!

didn't think this game would make it big in the end starting in the early DOS-days...
...really hope the package keeps it's promise on people who've been claimed to
stretch their imagination back in the eighties with 2D...

@ 2010/03/27

I don't know, I would assume that either the producer/director did not like where he was going with the music, or he had to drop out. Though James Horner for a Karate Kid flick? Eh. Need to pick some new blood.
