Maybe WW1984damn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOLYeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photo
Hah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.I like the tracks
Wow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2That recording footage makes it all the more baffling to me why the end product sounds the way it does.

Hans ZIMMER speaks about BATMAN BEGINS

"There is a guy named Chris Nolan who one day phoned me out of the blue and said ?Would I like to do this movie he was working on?? and after a while he was telling me what it was but the way he was describing it was that it was a small experimental film, just like the way he?s made his movies. And I thought ?Hey, this sounds really good, this is a really interesting angle on the superhero thing? ?cos I don?t know anything about superheroes. So I sort of said ?yes? to him and then the mighty executives at Warner Bros. phoned me and they were using words like ?franchise? and ?industrial?; all those big words that get really scary and I said ?Well I don?t think I can do it because I don?t want to be responsible for ruining a perfectly good franchise, if you see what I mean..."

Batman Begins first review by Matthew Scheller

After eight long years of anticipation and speculation, another Batman film is finally here. Acclaimed director Christopher Nolan (of Memento fame) has gone back to the roots of the character in order to "reboot" the franchise - a compromised decision made by Warner Bros. in order to apologize for the notorious Batman & Robin. Gone are the neon lights, bat nipples, homo-erotic influences and Joel Schumacher. Another ingredient that has been altered for this restart is the music.

FROM FSM

This Japanese website is playing some of the “Batman Begins” score over streaming video footage of the movie’s early Japanese premiere the other day!

And (surprise!) it sounds like a mixture of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard – some Zimmer-esque action music, and some Howard-like strings and piano. There’s also some really creepy, avant-garde sounds, presumably for the film’s villains. It plays for about 20 minutes non-stop, then there’s voice-over from the announcers until the 36.00 minute mark, and the music picks up again. It’s definitely from the score; the theme at the 36:05 point was in the most recent trailers (and here it has a killer string ostinato underneath it.) Check it out!

Greatest Soundtracks Of All Time

According to a new survey, The Sun Online announces that The Lord Of The Ring (Howard SHORE) arrives in first position, while John WILLIAMS' Star Wars gets the 2nd place. And a composer that we know very well takes the third place : Hans ZIMMER and his GLADIATOR's soundtrack. Good score, but it takes all sorts to make a world...

Thank you Thirdnature ! ;-)
