Andrew's second solo feature...<br><br><br>Now still waiting for that Sky Hunter release... :(@Hybrid, what happened with Trevor? Why his scores are not listed in the page? ThanksIt is somewhat bizarre that you all are thinking directors actually want to work with Junkie. Surely, the only reason anyone hires him is that they want Zimmer who is not available. Yes, some may have heard Mad Max but it would be silly to think anyone actively wants a Junk score.Bob Badami (as Robert Badami), Melissa Muik, Mark Wherry (as Mark Andrew Wherry are music editors!<br><br>Booklet credits<br><br>Music Editor: Melissa Muik <br>Score Wrangler: Bob Badami<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark WherryI don't think Junkie XL picks the shittest films to work on. It's just that art film directors won't choose him to score their films. Even in RCP, a lot of his colleagues are more well respected than he is. I would argue Benjamin Wallfisch is already more well regarded. Mad Max is an exception because of its unique setting and story line.
Metro Expanded Score (1997) By Steve Porcaro & James Newton Howard<br><br>I found an interesting about unreleased tracks from the whole movie by one hour and 57 minutes, it's meant something missing in the movie.

Final Chase (3:11)"I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct."<br><br>I agree with you, except that Snyder and I have very different ideas about what makes good (film) music, and how to emphasize it. Ridley Scott is a somewhat similar case. Somehow he has gotten a ton of great music written for his movies over the years despite the fact that his musical instincts are really strange and misguided sometimes. At least Snyder doesn't butcher the scores he gets.<br><br>You're right that a director like Whedon doesn't seem to pay that much attention to how music can enhance his movie. But as someone who cares about film music 95% of the time as albums, not in film, I often find that a director who gets out of the way and just trusts the composer to do his/her thing is preferable to one who gets overly involved with the scoring process and has lots of ideas about how things should sound. That the subsequent scores end up buried or ineffective in their films is a shame, but the music at least tends to be good on its own terms.@mrzimmerfan<br>Oh no, I mean I love the score as a whole. I was just saying my personal highlights. Man of Steel emotionally resonated with me. But that’s cool that you like BVS, I personally just think Man of Steel is more engaging.@mpolonest: But that moments are simply moments, not the entire score, i prefer BvS, because there is a variety in it: Batman, Wonder Woman, Luthor, and is more complex than MoS (also i prefer the movie over MoS).<br><br>And yes, the theme for Superman is cool, but that dosen't make the entire score cool too.and some nice boob representation, too.
@MrZimmerFan<br><br>Point Break is a lousy movie, but the score and guitar main theme isn't all that bad. Those 10 minutes on the soundtrack don't do it enough justice at all.<br><br>But again - this is Junkie doing action scoring....Miles better than any of his slow stuff. For me, anyway.@Edmund <br>He’s definitely not my favorite director, but I do think he knows how to place emphasis on music as opposed to Joss Whedon or any of the other studio director who treats it like a byproduct. One of my biggest pet peeves is when directors/composers just use music as a sonic wallpaper, instead of letting it improve  and add to the scene. John Ottman is a great example. He can write great themes, but he tends to write underscore which adds nothing to the film. That’s why Zimmer, Williams, James Newton Howard, etc. are so good. They treat each moment with care."Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music"<br><br>A matter of opinion, and not an opinion I share.@mrzimmerfan <br>I disagree with you there. I love Man of Steel, I think the themes and the overall bombastic nature of the score work perfectly. As for BVS, I’m not a huge fan honestly. There are some amazing highlights, but the tone of the score is so downbeat. It lacks the soaring elements of “Flight” or “What Are You Gonna Do...” and the action highlights of “Terraforming” or “Escape From Ship”. <br><br>To each their own though :-)For the themes mostly, this Batman and this Superman fit with the themes written by Zimmer. But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)<br><br>
I genuinely wish we could hear Justice League, I would have loved to see what he brought to that under Zack Snyder, a director who actually understands music.I still remember when Divergent was released, I was almost immediately dismissive of Junkie XL. Having only heard his remixes and his drum stuff for MoS/300 the first thing I expected was to hear an electronica album with percussion and sound design. So imagine my surprise when I heard several different themes, beautiful string adagios, vocals, and a pretty big variety of styles. And then Run All Night came out and blew me away. Ever since then I’ve been pretty supportive of his work, but I have to agree with everything you guys are saying.<br><br>The past two years have been pretty bad in terms of his ratio of good scores to bad. Black Mass and Brimstone, as I’ve mentioned, are solid scores that veer away from the usual JXL sound. But then we have Deadpool (abrasive), Distance Between Dreams (ok for a stand-alone album), Dark Tower (pretty fun in parts and just bland in others), and Tomb Raider (one of the most generic scores I’ve heard in recent memory). It’s frustrating to see a composer who obviously has talent and a diversity of skills write almost the same thing over and over. <br>And the weirdest thing is, his earlier scores are far more distinctive than his current ones. How did that happen?Nope he released All I see is you Soundtrack last year and it was a great soundtrack..<br><br>Are you sure you're a fan of him?<br><br>So far no project announced for this year but I think there will be at least one...What happened to Marc Streitenfeld? It's been a long time since there has been any involvement or a new score from him. Some years ago, I thought he's going to be the new upcoming star from the horizon of RCP. But then abruptly silence. Any reason or information?@Meta: Really Point Break was interesting?, it's only 10 minutes of music released, and i din't care about it, honestly, and the movie was really, really bad.<br><br>As for Tomb Raider, the music was serviciable in the movie, but i more comfortable with it than Point Break.

This is by far my facorite John Powell score. Truly, deeply epic (I mean... Rooftops is a masterpiece of musical score). It's an inspired piece of work and it keeps evolving all along with those amazing themes. Rarely have I liked a score that much.

thejok3rrules2014-10-01 06:33:48
favorite* but I believe you understood the point nonetheless.

Revisited the score after a long time, it's just is so fun and mental. Especially "Trouble on I-93" and "Bull Run".

Can't wait for HTYD-2.

Gave this one a listen today. Totally forgotten what a kickass track "Hostage" is! Glad we've got two new Powell scores to look forward to this year!

Anonymous2014-03-25 16:14:46
First time listening to it, unfortunately.... Good stuff. But judging from it it sounds like it inspired a lot of those POTC4 awful guitar jam tracks.

Edmund Meinerts2014-03-25 22:09:34
It's much more appropriate in this score, though, where parts of it take place in Spain. "Hostage" is actually nowhere near my favorite track, though..."Rooftops" and "Bull Run" take the cake for me.

I just saw the movie... this is such a wonderful score, one of the best i've heard in a while. I really miss John Powell :-(

Ds reply Replies: 2 || 2013-08-12 10:43:29
Do you think it is possible that John Powell reunites with Doug Liman on the upcoming "Edge of Tomorrow"? They've always worked together. It could be an extremely nice return to the action genre.

Macejko2013-08-12 12:55:54
This is kinda surprising for me, I thought Powell is doing it.

Edmund Meinerts2013-08-12 15:53:54
I sure hope so. I like the animation scores as much (or probably more) than the next guy but I hope he can keep the assignments a bit more varied than they have been in the past few years. Knight and Day here is his last live-action movie IIRC and that's over three years old by now.

@ Dennis,

Thanks for your review ! It makes me looking forward to listen to it !

According to IMDB, John Powell will be far from getting bored in the next months :

# Winnie the Pooh (2011) (in production)
# Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) (filming)
# Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom (2011) (filming)
# Happy Feet 2 in 3D (2011) (post-production)
# Rio (2011) (post-production)
# Mars Needs Moms! (2011) (post-production)

After his masterpiece for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, I think he'll be the most wanted "animation movie composer" ! And he deserves it !

YES!!! This is the soundtrack all Powell fans have been waiting for. It's a wonderful mix of all the great Powell action scores. (look at Daren's post below, I agree 100% with him)

Thanks to iTunes, they already have this score available for purchase for $9.99, you can't get a better price for this piece of art :)

Personal favorite tracks:
At The Airport: It's link the Tango song from Mr. And Mrs. Smith, and the theme for Knight and Day.

Rough Landing: A continuation of At The Airport and then a crazy action theme towards the end, reminiscient of John's earlier work on Paycheck especially the tracks Hog Chase .

Trouble On I-93: A great action piece. Reminds me a bit of Scooter Chase from Bolt and Hancock.

Running From Roy: A nice acoustic guitar piece, something familiar and different from John.

Five Star: Reminds me a lot of John and Jane's Identity, especially the string melody.

Rooftops: This is the BEST BEST BEST song on the entire score, this is John Powell's best!! It has a nice classical melody with those drums and fast action packed sequence. You can definetely picture Jason Bourne, Hancock, and Mr. And Mrs. Smith with this track. It starts off slow and then builds and never lets go until the very end.

Bull Run: Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, BAM this track comes. It's like Bim Bam Smash collided with the Mr. And Mrs. Smith and Paycheck. Excellent track!!

Overall a great soundtrack from Mr. Powell. Ashame there isn't anything else planned for him for a while :(
