balfe composed great orchestral actionmusic for Home and the Kung Fu Panda scores. all 3 scores have not the typical rcp actionmusic, so why shouldn't it be possible for him, to write an orchestral bond score? and if u wanna hear jackman in orchestral action mode, then listen to his Captain America scores. give both composers the bond theme and they will write you at least a more bondian score than thomas newman with Skyfall. but of course john powell would be also great.And David Arnold needs to get back on track for the blockbuster's game. His work on Sherlock is wonderful, but I do not see television as a safe path to his career.This is sacrilege! haha<br><br>Jablonsky or any other MV/RCP composer has never been able to write a good, classic jazz score worthy of 5 stars. As quoted above, Powell and Zimmer were the closest to this, but frankly there are sacred projects, such as Bond, which should have their music universe respected.<br>What in Balfe's filmography points to him being a good Bond choice? Powell's back catalogue is littered with cues that prove he'd be good with Bond. "Escape from the Dragon" from Shrek is basically a David Arnold Bond action cue already. "The New Plan" from Italian Job. "Hog Chase Part 2" from Paycheck. "SUV Chase" from Hancock. Has Balfe ever written anything with that much style and verve? Penguins of Madagascar is the only thing that really comes to mind but that feels more like parody than the genuine article.<br><br>Call me a fanboy all you like, but at least I give reasons for why I support Powell, and am not just clogging threads with "omg POWELLLL BEST COMPOSER OF THE WORLD !11!1!!!11oneone1"if the bond producers would let the rcp guys write an orchestral score, then balfe or jackman would be a good fit. but also a bond score by harry gregson-williams would be interesting for me.
Edmund ! Thatís a surprise you would only choose John Powell. Amazing you have the nerve to talks about the Balfe fanboys !!!!!When Will Complete Motion Picture ScoreA total revelation about Wallfisch "Horse Theme" (AKA K/Joe's theme) and its relation with original Tears in the Rain.<br><br>http ://www.mundobso.com/bso/blade-runner-2049Just listen to "Invasion Begins", it's almost like a small suite of Shen's theme.The only MV/RC composer I ever would want to see work on James Bond is John Powell. He's more than capable of doing the sort of cool, suave, jazzy sound that Bond needs. Beyond that...maybe if Zimmer was able to go way, way, *way* back to A League of Their Own mode, that could be neat, but otherwise MV/RC style is simply not a good fit for Bond.<br><br>The Goldeneye score SUCKS. The Thomas Newman ones are only OK. Bring David Arnold back. I have spoken.
Saw the movie over the weekend.The music was the best thing about the movie.not the best but the score made it 1000 times better for sureyeah!!! He was amazing!!! After Dunkrik the best movie in 2017 (for me)Skarsgard really nailed that scene, it was the scene which made it clear how different his Pennywise is from Tim Curry's.Does the blu-ray come with a CD or digital download? Or do you have to buy the album also.Time To Float is sooo strong :-) And a nice Scene btw :-)
All i'd say its worth it in a complete score is We Have To Go film version, and maybe some snippets of Seglass and Merlin's Staff variations.<br><br>Other than that, we got more music in the soundtrack than in the film since most was cut off.Everybody is talking about Shen's Theme. I just can't figure out what his theme really is.<br>Could someone please note where in wich song and at what time his theme appears?<br><br>Thanks very much!mpolonest123 - definitely sounds like it might be inspired by it. I heard the "glockenspiel roll" employed by Bellis used in the track "Deadlights" as well. If these things are intentional nods, then it's pretty cool that the score at least acknowledges the past.I don't know if anybody stayed behind long enough to find out given that the only thing waiting at the end of the credits is one last Pennywise laugh and "IT: Chapter 1". I'd assume "Georgie's Theme" played next.Seriously, I didn't catch very much at all that was left out of the soundtrack....I DID hear alot of repeated tracks in the movie, however...So I can't say what would be notably absent. Anybody got a good example?

yes it's true. by the way, what can you say for this Hybrid. Completely fake as you say for everything who win to post tracklist like this before you do it?


Mr. Fate2011-10-24 04:09:58
^^^The guy above me seems to be problematic and a non-believer.

Take care of him, please.

Of course, we could never know if it is continually the same guy who refuses to believe that Hybrid Soldier really does have anything: he's Anonymous. Yeah, good job genius.


Karambaru2011-10-24 14:32:58
I don't know for Hybrid, but for me at least this one's not a fake. But that's very old news, definitively. :)


Hybrid2011-10-24 20:16:39
don't be stupid. anyone can take my name and clai to be the 'real hybird'. just like now. stop acting pathetic and grovelling over someone who may not even exist. I claim to have the music, yet I do not share??? odd, eh?

Ready To Fight and Testify is fine, rest is boring. Also Kuala Lumpur is Green Zone copy-paste.

To be fair, I think the director wasn't seeking a bombastic score, let alone a melody driven orchestra. The story is sorta bleak, with all odds against one individual. I think the electronics resemble the highly evolved state of the CIA along with all the red tape that comes within this very story. It's simple, but at the same time very complex.

I think overall, it's music that was more or less used just to keep up with the story, the characters, and that's about it. It isn't like John's prievous scores where his music carries the soul of movies. This score was to carry the enviroment of the film - nothing more nothing less. And to be quite frank, it does the job. I certainly enjoy most of the music on here. Specifically "The White House" "Ready to Fight" "Uncomfortable Love" and "Testify"

+1 ... I don't know what is wrong with Powell's magic here. It's disappointing!

@ mis and dawn. Hans zimmer likes composer to get a foothold in the business cause that the hardest thing to do, you always learn from each other and get inspiration from each other thats how the world works.

Mis reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-12 00:00:00
Ok, ok you're right ! I don't deny this ! :D

Dawn reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-12 00:00:00
@Mis

Zimmer, along with Jay Rifkin, created a music company called Media Ventures, later renamed "Remote Control". Powell was hired in this company for a while... working on projects where Zimmer was the main composer / producer.
Now Powell has his own trademark and is more a master than a student, but he definitely began his hollywood carrier thanks to Zimmer, being some kind of a member of Zimmer's team. You cannot deny it ! :D

I don't know, they were only partners, not "teacher and student". Maybe it's more correct if I say that they are both student, and they can learn about each other ! Is is better ? :)

Mis, what about El Dorado, what about Antz, what about Chill Factor, Prince of Egypt, Endurance, The Thin Red Line, or Kung Fu Panda ? :P

"...ex-team members of Hans Zimmer" Powell as a ex-team member of Hans Zimmer.... I don't know, but I consider Powell as a separate composer. Zimmer and he had a job (Face off) but then they split up. That's all :) He learnt everything by ownself I think.

I have a problem with this movie being called Fair Game, like the mid-90's actioner with Cindy Crawford, both films being scored by ex-team members of Hans Zimmer ! :)

You can hear the samples at amazon.
this is the link:
http://www.amazon.com/Fair-Game/dp/B0045X1GLK/ref=tmm_other_ title_0

another action-electronic music from john powell that sounds like doug liman' previous film score and recent greengrass' greenzone score. it sounds good, but i love powell scoring in animation world better.
(i want to be a composer in the future, and john powell is my main inspiration, so i love all john powell score)

I don't know about samples yet :( And I agree, I can't wait ! Anyway, you can hear one or two tracks in the movie's trailer :)
