Yea But it isn't like they would lost Money with such a Giant Score like the TF3 one. Well I still Hope that we will get it one day :)@meta I'm feeling the same way. TF movies have always been flawed but very enjoyable for me thanks to Michael Bay's trademark. But this one... is so bad not even Michael Bay can save it. I really don't know what the screenwriters did in their "collaboration room"... but for sure they didn't collaborate a lot, because this "story" is probably the most disjointed mess I've ever seen.<br><br>The saving grace for me was the track "We Have To Go", which plays entirely without cut, that whole scene was pretty bad-ass.@Ds: Actually I prefer Ender's Game (also released by Varese Sarabande) over P&G (but the movie is cool)Pain and Gain is not a bad score, actually it's maybe better than the TF scores, in its own genre.<br><br>But it's entirely electronic so I guess there are no musicians to pay!<br><br>Also, maybe a lot of releases have the same deal as TF3 and TF4, but so few people buy them, they remain for sale forever because the maximum allowed number of sales is never reached...I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the  action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P <br>I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.
one more question. Who wrote the Bumblebee theme?Does an instrumental version of BATTLE CRY exist?? 0.oAwesome Thx.which tracks are suites, cuz it seems like a bunch are...?Love Izzy!
I take it back...<br><br>Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....<br><br>What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.There's also a little hint in "Code Red" too...Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.
Lea Halalela on CD “RHYTHM of the PRIDE LANDS“ from 1995;...<br>Frankfurt show was amazing, Leipzig tooHey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.<br><br>The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!<br><br>Greetings from Southampton/England

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 ! ;-)
