Because they didn't work direcly in this score, but their material from the previous one was reused.Does anyone know why some of the composer names are in brackets? Thanks!thanks4:05 of "STEALTH" some of the best soulful action music I've heard from a Zimmer score. I wonder who wrote that particular section. This the type of stuff I would play trying to rush a pregnant woman to the hospitalIn case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.<br><br>Job well done, my friend.
@Hybrid <br>You don't add anymore Trevor Morris things ?Probably for chronological purposes<br>even though the movie uses a shortened version of Romanian Wind at that timei saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene.<br>===============================<br><br><br>I agree. <br><br>And I think at the end of the day the movie itself is not the type of movie that could win people over with its score. No matter how successful and popular it is and no matter how good the score is. I Am Number 4 was part of the YA craze that took over Hollywood a few years back (we all know how people feel about those movies), and even the most successful YA movies (like Twilight) are not exactly known for their scores.<br><br>People - even film critics who are supposed to talk about all aspects of the movie - were too busy talking about half-naked characters and Kristen Stewart's acting..... and completely ignoring the good work done by Alexandre Desplat.<br><br>It was pretty much the same with I Am Number Four...<br><br>It's not that Trevor created a "bad" score, it's simply a case of a nice, little score that went under the radar. No one bothered to talk about it..... Just like his score for Torque, which as far as I'm concerned is one of his best scores.I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.<br>===========================<br><br><br>I totally get what you're saying. I also get kinda frustrated when a "big" track overshadows an entire score. The best recent examples are IMO the Transformers scores. I don't blame folks for gravitating towards the epic sound and the power anthems, but A LOT of subtle, equally great tracks end up getting completely ignored. And just like you, they're usually my favorite tracks. <br><br>But why most people don't think like us?<br><br>The reason I think is because those "big tracks" are presented - most of the time - during the most memorable moments in those movies. They immediately get people's attention. They're stuck in their mind along with those iconic images. And I think by nature, people are more attracted to the big and "in your face". For most casual listeners the more subtle tracks work in the context of the movie and they absolutely do notice them while watching the actual film. But unlike you and I they don't feel the need to listen to them separately. They're too busy paying attention to the "big track". That goes even for some score fans.<br><br>While tracks like the Star War theme, the Indy theme, the Transformers theme, the Gladiator theme, the Godfather theme, the Armageddon theme, the Pirates theme, the Lord of the Rings theme are so big, melodic abd easily digestable that folks simply can't resist them. And when there are vocals involved as well (like Gladiator) it's even better, because people treat it as a full-blown song. An emotional song that they can listen to over and over again.<br><br>The subtle tracks simply can't win against that. Sadly....<br><br>By the way, speaking of The Island, My Name is Lincoln (as much as I like it) is not my favorite track of the score. The more subtle opening track (The Island Awaits You) and especially the Lima One Alpha theme are my personal favorite tracks. Of course, they're nowhere near My Name is Lincoln, in terms of popularity.<br>Why is Romanian Wind not sequenced after Case Re-Opened? Is not the former 7M48 and the latter 7M47?
Yeah that is true, can’t argue there lol<br><br>And is it me or does “Calypso Must Be Released” sound like Black Hawk Down?To be fair there is a lot of King Arthur in At World's End too. Just the general feeling you get from the action tracks in both scores is virtually identical. Hell, one of the main themes from King Arthur even appears when Bootstrap Bill remembers that Will is his son.@MrTweedy<br>That’s totally fine, everyone has their own favorite HZ scores, which is awesome!<br><br>It’s funny though, I feel like DMC is far more schizophrenic than AWE. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love DMC. It’s the score that got me into Hans Zimmer. But still, I feel like a major part of that score is note-for-note reprises of cues/themes from COTBP. Not to mention the temp tracking of King Arthur.<br><br>AWE always felt far more original to me, especially considering that the entire tone of the music shifts from the “rock’n’roll” sound of the first two to a more traditional score (at least by Hans Zimmer standards lol)@MrTweedy<br><br>Just curious, what scores do you considered to be Zimmer's best?The Pinnacle of Hans' career?<br>Although I really like this score, I don't agree. But hey, I know it's just a matter of opinion, okay? ;)<br><br>Of course it shows Hans strengths in almost every area (action, drama, romance, comedy...) but for me it's too much of a medley of previous works, without much personality.<br>It feels a bit like a palette with too many colors. From the action sequences borrowed from Drop Zone, to the Morricone inspirations for Jack's Sequences, to Gladiator's duduk that ended up there with no real reason, to a beautiful Love Theme that brings another new shape to the sonic identity... it's like the score sometimes goes schizophrenic.<br><br>Though each individual idea is really enjoyable to listen to, I think Hans has made scores that are much more cohesive and enjoyable as a whole!
i also think it is an underrated score. especially the action music has a couple of nice touches. i saw the movie a couple of weeks ago again and the showdown in the school is very well shot and intense and trevors music is effective there. you can hear track 8 and 19 in that scene. a really good action scene. the emotional music is nothing ground breaking, but a lovely listen.Y'know, it's funny. The big names that always get the most attention in film music are often not my favorite tracks of the scores they represent. Now We Are Free, Arrival to Earth, Like A Dog Chasing Cars, Star Wars Main Theme, Indiana Jones Main Theme, Infinite White, One Day, Circle of Life, The Fellowship. Though they are the most well known, they're usually nowhere near the peak of quality of their scores. <br><br><br>I noticed this the most in Hans Zimmer's concerts (not World of Hans Zimmer mind you). The parts he played from The Dark Knight Trilogy in particular usually had the least substance. Just the bombastic tracks. The only choice I agreed with was Time from Inception. There was no Am I Not Merciful, A Watchful Guardian, Sunrise Over Pride Rock, none of that. <br><br><br>Even with Star Wars, the main theme and the Force theme are solid pieces of music, but neither come close to the beauty of Princess Leia's theme, or the wondrous Yoda theme. <br><br><br>Same with Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship Reunited, Very Old Friends, Gollum, and The Breaking of the Fellowship are much more substantial pieces than The Fellowship Theme alone in my opinion. <br><br><br>Can't say anything about My Name is Lincoln because I haven't finished The Island score yet, but yeah. I just find it odd how people gravitate to the triumphant or inspirational music first, rather than the more subtle, unique pieces.Thanks guys, will check out these cues.Hmm, aside from "The Guardian Suite' I don't think I've heard any other tracks from this score. And I have a feeling I'm not the only one....lol.<br><br>Speaking of.........I would most definitely put "The Guardian Suite' right up there next to "Now We Are Free" and "My Name is Lincoln". It's *that* good and powerful. Shame that the movie is not as popular as The Island and Gladiator. If it was, that suite would've been one of the most popular film score tracks with millions of views on YouTube. It certainly deserves it.Very underrated score. As already pointed out by a couple of reviewers, it's a nice, little throwback to MV/RC's Golden Years and Trevor's own scores from 1997 to 2002. Give it a listen if you can. It's not long and it's worth it.

Whoa, Hans Zimmer did more than I thought. Cool! It's interesting how a lot of RCP scores are collaborative efforts.


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-08 09:10:17
Though HZ confirmed to me working on things like Armageddon or Transformers 2, he's never really admitted "working" on that one.

He's on the cue sheet but told me he "helped Ramin find his way" (meaning in this big mess).

So he probably never really sat down and took the keyboard to write anything, but was probably behind the guys giving ideas & where to go. ;)


Mike2012-12-08 09:13:22
I see. I really liked this score, though. They should've kept Ramin on for #2. The score to 2 was forgettable, in my opinion.


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-08 12:12:23
Personally I liked 2 a lot more than 1. There was a stronger balance between orchestral and electronic with Debney, and the Russian theme for Whiplash was just badass!

Granted I haven't heard this complete Iron Man 1, but from the OST I always thought it was a bit of a mess. Really simplistic and hardly any themes beyond DUN-DUN-DUN-DUN...DUN-DUN-DUN-DUN...DUN-DUN - which got old really fast. Djawadi definitely improved after this one.


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-08 12:26:39
Apart from the opening, there's nothing in Debney's score. Empty score for an empty film.

The first one is better in every way, and Iron Man had a THEME !


Edmund Meinerts2012-12-08 13:14:18
Debney did write a theme for Iron Man 2 ("I Am Iron Man", and it sounds a bit like Jerry Goldsmith's Total Recall), but for whatever reason it's hardly used in the rest of the score. Apparently that's not his fault, though, because the producers forced him not to use it (kind of the way the producers forced him not to write the first score at all...it's like they've got it out for him or something). Djawadi's theme (are you referring to the one heard in "Vacation's Over"?) is OK, but it's not much, and sounds a lot like TMNT by Klaus Badelt...

And what exactly do you mean by an "empty" score?


Anonymous2012-12-08 14:47:55
To @Hybridyou say Debney´s Score for Iron Man 2 is empty. So, this question here is: What Tha Fuck are you talking about? What the hell did you hear? I´m not saying Djawadi did bad job. Djawadi's Iron Man has good themes, but Debney's Iron Man 2 extend the sound Djawadi did in the first Iron Man. And has a better balance between Orchestral and Electronic and add Chorus.


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-08 14:58:52
I'm based on the (not really good) film, not the OST. Never heard it, never will. I've seen the film a couple of time, and I keep to my point.


Mike2012-12-09 03:02:51
I've actually not listened to either of the Iron Man scores by themselves, just with the movies. And judging from that I can say that I liked the score to #1 more.

The soundtrack sounds a hell of a lot better then the quality of the film tracks... you can tell more production went into the production of the soundtrack. Wish this had that quality....

Bondo reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-31 00:00:00
In this version, you can hear all the nuances drowned out by sound sx in the theater. My particular favorite is "Dog Fight" by Atli Örvarsson; you'd never notice the variety of sounds in the theater or on DVD.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-31 00:00:00
Well, Bondo, you can explain that cause a part of the track is just cut in the film...


The last part of the cue is mainly... silence in the movie... :O


Same for Rescue or Monger Attacks... :S

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2010-08-31 00:00:00

It's certainly better in chronological order as inteded! I overlooked this score when it first came out, but it gets better with repeated listens. The themes are more obvious in the new presentation; it's also interesting to hear who composed what
