Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow.

Yes and no.

If we take into account that King Arthur is reminiscent of Crimson Tide, The Rock, The Peacemaker and Backdraft his contributions also pale because it is fair to say that King Arthur were based with the music of these films.

There's a video on YouTube. The video shows Howard Shore writing and conducting the music for the orchestra. The video also shows Howard Shore and Peter Jackson talking about the score. After that, Peter Jackson rejected the score writing one statement about that saying Howard and he discuss about the music many times, Howard recorded many cues but in the process Peter he wasn´t satisfied about the music. That thing created many discussions, they could not agree in terms of music so Peter fired Howard after that saying he prefered keep Howard as a friend. And then the hobbit came and the rest, well, the relation was not the same.

So there's like 50 to 70% percent of the music recorded by Howard Shore. He didn't finish the recordings, so, yes, there's a rejected score recorded. And then, James came aboard.

Well "Prime" for TF2 is part of the main theme "Knights March" from King Arthur which Jablonsky co-composed so I really don't have a problem with a lot of the temps from King Arthur in Transformers. Specifically because Jablonsky did a lot of the main tracks for that score.

indeed, Bumblebee has the same vibe with the orchestral and guitar sound, and I guess GoT was temp too

David Stobelman
I was at a test screening for RUSH (sitting directly behind Ron Howard and Hans himself!) - and the entire film was heavily temped with Transformers. Specifically "Bumblebee", which opened and closed the film in a very powerful way. There was a lot more transformers throughout.

"I mean I hear it a little in the GoT cue. But if anything, it's like Transformers and Got had a baby named Rush."

More like Transformers, GoT and The Dark Knight.

I imagined that you would, Macejko.
Since you are here and you love GoT as much as I do, did you noticed the similarities between Light of the Seven and Freedom Fighter (Assassin's Creed 3)?
  Rush2018-04-17 21:15:18

I agree about the temp love for Rush. But GoT isn't the score I would say was the culprit. To me Rush's "1976" sounds more like the track "Bumblebee" from Jablonsky's Transformers score. Common denominator there (Rush, Transformers)....Balfe.

I don't want to make a witch hunt / temp track hunt but.. I re-watched Rush and I found some similarities with the Game of Throne OST, Season 2 (april to june 2012, and Rush was released in septembre 2013...)
there is a video comparaison on yt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBpMb-YpEyU&ab_channel=Pende rghast

it's seems like Hans was inspired by the got soundtrack, or is there a way that he get the theme from Rush first if is he was working on the movie soon enough, before Djawadi started the S2?

Because they are very short scores (for Fist Fight & Rough Night) with lots of short cues, transitions between songs... Not much interesting as a score release...

This is such an adventurous, boisterous and charming score by Dom!
IMO he topped Free Birds with this one (and I thought Free Birds was one of the best RCP animated scores ever, apart from the terrible fuzz and distortion that plagued a number of tracks, especially the last third of the album).
So happy to finally have a Dom Lewis score released; it's been a while.
SIDE NOTE: Hybrid, do you know why Dom's previous 3 or 4 scores (I'm talking Fist Fight, Rough Night, DuckTales, etc.) haven't had releases?

Yeah, I listened to the end credits music of Game Over, Man, and I gotta tell you guys, it's nothing special. Though to be fair I'm really not sure if I've ever heard I really great score for a Hangover-type of movie like that. So I don't think there was much Steve could do with that one. Maybe Skyscraper will give him more opportunities to show his skill.
  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Out Of The Shadows2018-04-15 12:03:36

I need to listen to this one again. I love the themes, but the many action cues seemed to sort of blend into one another (unlike with Steamboy, where each one has its own distinct personality). I agree it's one of Jablonsky's best scores though. Hoping that this year's Skyscraper is similarly fun.
