I could see it getting some kind of release down the line, itís not uncommon for Directors Cuts to pop up years after a film has left theaters. What I donít see is them shelling out money to finish/add effects or whatever other touch ups may be needed.<br><br>My personal hope is that (somehow) they get Junkie involved to finish whatever score he started, just to hear his take.Years ago, Hybrid posted that James Newton Howard was in charge of "The Bat Cave" and people got confused since that cue is clearly Zimmer. Well here's James Newton Howard talking about that cue directly on a score podcast:<br><br>ďI had written what I thought was a really good theme, played for that moment when Bruce Wayne goes into the bat cave and all the bats come flying around. And I thought it was pretty good. And then the next day, Hans arrived with his kind of infamous ostinato with the two french horn notes, and that was pretty much the way to go. So it was a mutual effort on that movie, pretty much on every cue.Ē<br><br>There ya go. "The Bat Cave" sounds like Hans because it is. lol. <br>I don't think WB release the Snyder Cut, because with the new way they take, it could affect the new movies. <br>But, i would like to see the Snyder cutWhere can I get my hands on this complete score version please - is it available for purchase anywhere?Would you be able to do a more accurate breakdown of the OST Hybrid? Since this seems to be based off of old cuesheet info.
Looking at the complete score for this listed here and the OST, there are a lot of credit inconsistencies between the two. Maestro aka Main Title is apparently HZ, LB, IH yet its listed as solo HZ. Kayak for One is listed as A÷, RA, HP yet here it's solo Allison. what gives?Can't seem to recall if Hans was ever considered for this project.... Mancina rocked it of course, but I just wonder what Hans would've done....Maybe something like Drop Zone?<br><br>P.S. A little sidenote: I recently saw STONE COLD again and honestly Sylvester Levay's score for the movie has to be one of the best "manly", "hardcore" action scores. IMO. So freakin' badass! I can't believe there's no official release. Or even a bootleg.... Levay deserves more recognition overall. Stone Cold in particular is an action score that we simply don't hear nowadays. And I really miss that sound. I'm sure most of you have seen the movie so you know what I'm talking about. If not, go see it ASAP. You gonna have a blast :)I don't know what it is but with every Star Wars score I'm kinda getting bored after a while.<br>But this one, it's just wooow. The musoc stays spectacular every time I listen to it. From the know  SW element in Reminiscence Therapy & I to The Maw to the new theme for Han, Chewie, Qi'ra, L3 & Enfys Nest.<br><br>It doesn't happen a lot a lot that a movke that I don't like a lot, some parts, but the rest was meh, that the score is still my number 1 of 2018 and one of the best of the last 10 years!!! Hatts off Mr. PowellDear Mr. Zimmer!<br>Recently, our mother showed us a newspaper article about you and explained proudly: "This is my Hšnschenď.<br>Our mother Rosemarie Tangerner born Lagger was your nanny, when you were 1 - 2 years old.<br>She often told us about her time in Deutschland at her parents' house and showed us pictures of her and you. Unfortunately, I can not insert the photos on this page, but I would have liked to show them.<br>My mother felt very well with her family and spent a nice time with them.<br>We wanted to buy tivkets for our concert in Graz, but unfortunately the concert has been sold out for a long time.<br>Maybe it is possible to get tickets for your concert.<br>I would like to surprise my mother with a reunion with you.<br>We would be happy to hear from you personally!<br>Lovely greetings from Austria<br>Ulrike TangernerTracklist<br><br>1.

This Isn't You<br>11. Hellboy<br>12. Rock Me Like a Hurricane (Spanish Version)
Snyder confirmed that his cut of the film is essentially done, itís just up to WB to release it."For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views."<br><br>Eh, by that definition The Imperial March would also be a power anthem, and I'd question that (to put it lightly). I don't think popularity has much to do with a definition of a type of music really. Rather I'd say a power anthem is a bold, muscular, relatively simple and often rock/pop-influenced theme that builds up and gets bigger and bigger over time, the prototype being Hans Zimmer's theme from Crimson Tide. And Balfe has written plenty of them. Whether they're good or not is something that can be debated, but e.g. the opening track of PR:U definitely fits the criteria of a power anthem for me.Power Anthems!!!!!! Is this the 1980s again!!!im the first to love a great tune but we are in another decade now.<br><br>Talking of tunes , Balfes best is still Ohís Theme from Home.Balfe writes epic themes constantly<br>==================<br><br>Epic themes, yes.<br><br>Actual power anthems on par with Now We Are Free and My Name is Lincoln......No. In my opinion.but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion<br>=============<br><br>My point as well.
Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem<br>=============<br><br>Clearly we have a different understanding of what a "power anthem" is. For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views.<br><br>None of the tracks in the Hurricane Heist score can compare to these power anthems. None. Same goes for 12 Strong, PacRim 2 and (lol) Lego Batman. Only 13 Hours comes close. And that's because Michael Bay is the type of director who loves and demands power anthems (and thank God for that). It's no wonder that some of the most famous power anthems come from his movies...<br><br>I'm not saying all of that to undermine Balfe. It's just my personal observation.Balfe writes epic themes constantly.Assassins Creed,Beyond Two Souls,Geostorm are just some examples.Track 1 of PR: U is a power anthem, Brothers from Hurricane Heist is a power anthem, 12 Strong is a bit iffy as a lot of them aren't full anthems and more like action cues that go on for a bit. But I would disagree on the bad themes, I really enjoy the Brothers theme from HH (best moments in the score is when it crops up) and the main theme from PR: U, but aside from that they're not his best works.Hope you keep the staff ratings though, its useful for me as a lot of the people here have similar musical tastes to me and it helps to find ones that I might like.i wouldn't say, that Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist and 12 Strong have power anthems. all 3 don't have even good themes. they are ok and they are the best part in every score, but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion.

Hans' Megamind Theme reminds me of Madagascar for some reason.

Megamind in general reminds me of a better-developed version of Madagascar.

Edmund Meinerts2014-04-26 15:20:45
I just found this one too. Looking forward to hearing it; the original album, missing the entire final battle sequence, was completely inadequate. I'd say it's still Balfe's best score (if you can call it a Balfe score).


T-Mann0362014-04-27 06:36:44
The recording sessions was spot on. Hans & Lorne had done a great job on making the film soundtrack... especially those not found in the original soundtrack.

Ds reply Replies: 1 || 2013-05-20 14:11:08
The music as heard in the movie sounds so much better than this release... Still, very cool work from Hans & Lorne, they did exactly the kind of music the film needed.

And the scene with "I'm the bad guy" really has an epic feel.

Giant Blue Head and Tightenville show up on Lorne's website, does that mean that he composed them?


Mr. Fate2012-06-02 03:26:15
yes


Ds2012-06-02 12:53:33
Mr Fate, how do you know that?

I'd say, Lorne Balfe is co-composer (and not additional composer), what means that all the cues could be on his website... no?


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-02 13:38:24
Absolutely...

Actually it's a co-score, Lorne & Hans wrote the themes TOGETHER.

Like one starts it, the other finishes it.


Mr. Fate2012-06-02 14:00:52
Thanks, Hybrid. I saw this a little bit ago just before you posted and had been thinking about my own input on the matter.

Ds, even if Balfe is a co-composer, that means he is *still* a composer of the score. It wouldn't make much sense if he posted samples of Zimmer's work on his own website now, would it? Composers like Balfe, Geoff Zanelli, and Magic Box Music post samples of their own works on their websites so that they can get their names and styles out there and recognized.

It is from this assumption that we could go ahead and conclude that Lorne Balfe is the composer of "Giant Blue Head" and "Tightenville".


Anonymous2012-06-02 17:59:23
It sounds to me like Giant Blue Head and Tightenville are perfect blends of the composers' abilities. The other theme for Megamind heard mainly in Black Mamba sounds totally like Zimmer, as does the love theme.


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-02 18:45:27
Speaking of Lorne, if you want some news, he's just completing the next Assassin's Creed & Spyro as we speak. He finished a UK feature, The Sweeney, which should have a score release.


Schmo2012-06-02 22:50:33
Hi Hybrid Soldier

Is Lorne doing Assassin's Creed 3 by himself or is Jesper Kyd returning as well?

I ask because months before Ubisoft announced Jesper Kyd was returning for Assassin's Creed Revelations he had it listed on his site and on his agency site (The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency)that he was composing for the game but I can't find any news on Jesper returning for Assassin's Creed 3.

I thought Lorne's music for Revelations was better than Jesper's so I'm hoping Lorne is doing the full score himself.

Thank you


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-04 17:51:28
Err... No idea !

I'll ask Lorne ! :)

Am I clear in understanding that there is no track for the DVD title screen music they used or that little snippit in the beginning of the movie which was the same track? Because I have gone through the entire soundtrack and have not heard it ONCE. There was a tease of it in Giant Blue Head, but that wasn't the actual piece. You're driving me nuts, Zimmer, for not putting that in the soundtrack!!! Please, if anyone can help me find it or tell me where I can get it, it would be much appreciated.

I don't know, but I totally agree.

Snake reply Replies: 12 || 2010-12-19 00:00:00
I think Lorne Balfe is doing a better job than Zimmer these days. Zimmer has been more involved in not so good projects including this one Megamind. His best works were done until 2003. However, Zimmer was involved in some projects that were awesome like The Dark Knight or Kung Fu Panda (special Zimmer's themes) (John Powell sucks). Also Balfe did good compositions, but that doesn't mean he's the next Zimmer. NO!!! He will never be the next Hans Zimmer. He''ll need a whole lifetime to do that but even with that, he'll never surpass Zimmer's earlier works. Should I tell them? No. Because everybody knows his works and he's the God of film music even with his few fails. But don't think I'm saying I hate his works. No; I think he's got talent and definitely has more talent than Henry Jackman, Ramin Djawadi (even his work in Medal of Honor) and the worst film composer of all times and Remote Control's history; Steve Jablonsky (special him and his totally horrible film compositions, and more with Michael Bay) together. That reminds me the time when Hans Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams worked together for a long time as Gregson-Williams as his apprentice. But that's my opinion so don't get angry if I offended you.

If Zimmer let Balfe to compose more music for upcoming films, then Balfe will gain respect in Hollywood and would work with renowed film producers and directors like Zimmer's former "padawans" such as Harry Gregson-Williams, Marc Streitenfeld, Trevor Rabin and Klaus Badelt. Besides, I loved what Balfe and Zimmer did on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 together.


Edmund Meinerts2011-06-07 16:10:32
John Powell sucks??? You're kidding, right? Powell is by far the best padawan (your word!) to emerge from Remote Control, to the point that I think he's doing better stuff than Zimmer himself these days.

Go listen to How to Train Your Dragon. Then cry because you were such an idiot ever to type the forbidden words "John Powell sucks", come back and apologize.

Also, listen to Steamboy - it'll make you think twice about your opinion of Jablonsky. ;)


Samantha2011-06-07 20:34:27
Amen Edmund Meinerts!!!


Lucinda2011-06-07 20:39:10
Wait... did Snake just wrote "John Powell sucks"??!!! Really???!!!

Oh my God dude... you shouldn't be alive!! You should be in the mental institute for writing those words.

John Powell is a fantastic composer - one of the best - and I'm really angry with the Academy for not giving him the Oscar for HTTYD (which is, btw, one of the best scores in the world).

Hans Zimmer is good and I love him but I have to be honest - his padawans (using your word as Edmund did) are becoming greater than him.

Sorry dude but you are just lame!!!


Peter2011-06-07 22:49:08
His Padawans?

I'll admit Jablonsky and Ramin Djawadi of late have been Getting better in their mimicry of Zimmer's styles. Even Henry Jackman did a good job with Xmen...

but I have to agree with the guy who negates Powell...

I'll extend that to even say Gregson-Williams sucks as well.

Both have been getting lazy. Either that or the projects they've been taking on havent really been the kind of projects
that give them much room to work, and much less shine in.


Gregson Williams watermark seems to have been after he did Man on Fire. Ever since then he's been riffing on himself.

Powell's looks to have been the Bourne Series. Much of his work after that, probably save Hancock, has been hyperkietic childrens' movie fare, which is kinda meh IMO. And yes I include Kung Fu Panda.

Im all for Zimmer's padawans picking up the torch, but both Powell and GW have been dropping their balls lately and letting THEIR padwans outshine them...


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-07 23:14:59
@ Peter

Powell and Gregson-Williams on a bad day still write better music than all those padawans with exotic names I don't even care to remember. They don't even deserve to be called padawan, minion is probably a better name.

Hell, on a bad day Gregson-Williams and Powell write even better music than Zimmer himself. Then again, Zimmer probably hasn't written a note of music in years, he's got his minions for that.

Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-08 13:11:04
@ Hybrid

Am I really? Sure, I exaggerated by saying Zimmer hasn't written a note of music in years. But he also hasn't written a full score without relying on his minions in years. It almost seems that list of additional composers is getting longer and longer with each score. Also none of his recent scores are as good as the stuff he wrote in the 90's.

And you can't seriously think that Ramin Djawadajajaji and Atali Orvarizon write better music than Powell and Gregson-Williams?!


Hybrid Soldier2011-06-08 13:29:56
Because Powell & Gregson write their scores alone ?

Are you kidding ? What about Dom Lewis, Paul Mounsey, McKee Smith, Ashton Thomas with Powell ? Cauthery, Hybrid, Anthony Lledo, Daveid Buckley, even Matthew Margeson with HGW ?

And yeah, I can affirm in the past few years Atli did much better than HGW (who is kind of lost since 2005)... Eagle, Season, Free Realms (which of course you haven't heard, I can't blame you), Babylon AD HGW hasn't matched stuff like that since a veeeeeeeeeeery long time, unfortunately... :S

Well no, but I don't get the idea that they rely on the additional composers as much as Zimmer does.

HG-W last couple of scores weren't very impressive (although I loved Prince Caspian and Prince of Persia), but I think that also had something to do with the films them self. Here's hoping he'll deliver on Cowboys and Aliens.

As for ÷rvarsson, I didn't really care much for Season but I did like The Fourth Kind. And The Eagle was also pretty good. Never heard of Free Realms. I'll see if I can find that one somewhere.

Sometimes you're right Snake, but you should also respect each composer Ramin Djawadi is one of my favorites! Steve was a good composer with Steamboy, transformers 1, and then a second part of this terrible and stupid with ACDC!

yeah! "Ironclad" a score by Lorne Balfe for a movie set in medieval time will get a release by Varese : 03/01/11

"Composer Lorne Balfe provides an epic, vibrant, heroic score for orchestra and choir."

Can't wait!

Oh, man I hope Rango gets a release. I wanna see that so bad, it looks really good. Just watching the trailer makes me feel like it will have a good score.

There won't be a release for The Dilemma either...

Lorne told me it's a really short score (a bit less than 40 min total) with tons of short cues... So no good listening experience...

So, no, no CD planned... :S

so I'm guessing we won't hear the dilemma either?

Hybrid have you any info on the project at all?

This was made expecially by Balfe....right?!

Enrico: I`m guessing that theme suites and some tracks (Stars and Tights, ...) are by Hans Zimmer and rest is by Lorne Balfe (so it was co-composed by both of them).

This is a fun score, nothing outstanding but nice to listen to nevertheless... but I think the CD ends far too abruptly ! It lacks some kind of conclusion, the end of "Evil Lair" leaves me waiting for what's coming next... except that there is nothing next ! A conclusion track would have been good, it would have given some closure to the album... too bad !
