Nop, you're not the only one.<br><br>I can say everything i listen John Powell is something with quality and personality.<br><br>How to Train Your Dragon is one of his best. You are missing out. <br><br>But I may be the only person who thinks Face/Off is one of his best scores. I love that score more than nearly any John Powell scores.I'm agree thatThey are independent events, but I think they are working in conjunction with each other. I based this on the description on the Vienna website. Their program is called The World of Hans Zimmer and some of the arrangements will be written by Zimmer himself. That leads me to believe this year's gala is a bit different and is just a stop for Zimmer's tour.Probably not. The two are indepedent events.
@Edmund<br><br>actually i wasn't interested in the Dragon scores...or Pan, for that matter. Xmen 3 wasn't too bad, but he still had that tight RCP score techniques...Yeah, I think he must have changed his methods since Hancock/Green Zone...Because I'm not interested in hsi work after that. Must be those pesky drums he doesnt use anymore?Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :pPretty sure the reason HGW works with Washington so often is because Tony Scott worked with him so often... :pWait, Meta, you haven't liked Powell since Hancock? This despite putting out his career peak in the How to Train Your Dragon scores? I mean, if there's anything that proves he's got the chops for Star Wars style orchestral and thematic music, it's those two (and X-Men: The Last Stand, and Pan).Excellent score!  Reminds me of pieces of The Rock, BHD, Drop Zone, stuff from The Pacific.  Great job Andrew!  Nice themes!  Fun RCP stuff!
Yes it was announced a while back, Harry returns !I can confirm that he is working on it.I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.
Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.

When I just first listen to JNH's music, it doesn't fit for my taste of the music but now, I really like his music. :3

Undeserved but anyway amazing score by James Newton Howard, this is simply a masterpiece, scores like this are what do than James be a respected composer, the only one (and biggest defect is the movie, that is horrible)

MacArthur reply Replies: 5 || 2013-12-29 00:20:53
Didn't James do The Fugitive (with Harrison Ford)?


Russel2013-12-29 00:34:20
Yes, according to the Internet Movie Data Base he composed the music to the film 'The Fugitive' with Harrison Ford in it.


MacArthur2013-12-29 01:36:19
Funny that some of his stuff isn't on here.


Russel2013-12-29 03:45:05
Why? He is not really part of RCP as far as I know. He only really helped out with the Dark Knight Trilogy. Pretty sure he has his own studio, named after him..? (Saw in the Hunger Games 2 End Credits)


MacArthur2013-12-29 04:43:23
Ok I just find it odd that some are listed and others aren't


Russel2013-12-29 05:19:31
Yeah, I guess. Me too.

Is James Newton Howard no more part of Remote Control?

His latest albums aren't mentionned here...


tomPoland2012-03-16 12:24:57
He was never part of RC, he just worked with them several times.

He's way better than any of HZ minions.

If the Oscar is fair enough (which they normally don't be because they mostly choose the score from the films which are nominated), this score should be nominated!

THE BEST SOUNDTRACK IN THE WORLD (for me, of course).

And I agree with TomPoland... I really hope this soundtrack gets an Oscar ^_^

Oscar 2011? I really hope so. Howard deserves it.

PS Waiting for a 'choir' bootleg:)

This composer is great, and this score is magic. We love your music, James!!!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-21 00:00:00
Actually, this score does have choir. It's just not utilized to a great extent.

That said, I think this is an excellent piece of work. JNH does it again!

Ravi Krishna reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-21 00:00:00
Even without the choir (shame!), this is one amazing score. I'm seriously addicted to the kickass Japanese percussion sequences and exciting orchestral action music!
