Winter Soldier sounds almost nothing like Kingsman<br>Civil war maybeYes! "No Time for Emotion" and "Not In Vain" contain John Denver's "Country Roads"! No Time for Emotion is Mark Strong singing it like in the film!! I'm so happy they included this! :DDoes anyone know a chronological order or is this chronological??"Mutant and Proud" (from X-Men First Class) was used on the scene when Harry's gets back his memories. Am i right?Now I'm even more excited for this!
Thanks !Here's the interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBALBRBmDfg<br><br>He starts talking about the score, quite passionately, at 05:50:)<br><br>Yeah that's probably the case! I think Wallfish is a great composer so I am sure it'll sound great!Probably. The first Kingsman sounds just like Winter Soldier.Any link to that ITW ? :)<br><br>Yeah Hans probably wrote the main ideas and probably a bunch of the big cues but Wallfisch wrote a good chunk of it... :)There's an interview where the director talks about the score being brilliant and he says Walfischs name before Zimmers so we can guess that zimmer being busy with the tour didn't have time to do that much on this score so this will be a mostly wallfish score.
Is it just me or is Poppy’s theme the same thing as Jack and Jill’s theme from puss n boots?I have no idea, it's been there since July, could be...<br><br>Check the featurette that came out a few days ago, "The World of Blade Runner", in it I think is definitely score material !interessting... i really think it can be a HZ/ BW / JJ track, it doesn't sound that commercial and basicRandy is obviously wrong and an idiot in my point of view.Just watched the movie and it was awesome, well not as great s the first one, but still very entertaining.<br><br>As for the score, by now I have just listened to it in the movie and there worked perfectly, I would say even better than in the first one, with some old themes and some very good new themes, specially I love the Poppy theme.<br><br>Now I will listen to the album to see what tracks are we missing but it looks like a really complete pack.
Haven't had a chance to listen to this one. Are you saying the tunes presented on album are not recorded with live musicians? If true then that would come as a surprise as I see some names in the full credits above that are associated with orchestra recordings, including Gavin Greenaway as the conductor.maybe quality is also not the correct word. its the function of the music. i just think the music of Armageddon is much stronger in its function as a filmscore than Pirates III. i also think the themes are stronger and rabins main theme is used in a wide range. but this also a matter of taste ofc.Yeah, but the quality of the acting beneath the score doesn't affect the quality of the music.I guess that's for the Statesmen. Would have preferred an all-out Western sound for them to contrast with the Bond-type music for the Kingsmen...that would have been fun!Great fun score. It has everything I expected. Although that country vibe in some tracks is nice not really my cup of tea.

The Dark Knight's Score Disqualified From Oscar Consideration




> Hans Zimmer marching to his own tune
Composer discusses his beef with Academy rules
By Hillary Crosley, Billboard




"Like it or not, The Dark Knight is going to keep popping up in headlines all the way through to the Oscars in February, so just be prepared. This latest news is rather disappointing for those who were a fan of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's score - that even I'd been strongly supporting since June. The executive committee of the Academy music branch has disqualified their score from Oscar consideration this year. This actually happened to their Batman Begins score in 2005 as well, so this isn't the first time. The Academy's reason behind the disqualification states that five names were listed as composers, and Zimmer and Howard were only credited for "more than 60%, but less than 70%" of the score."

MOTION PICTURE SOUND EDITORS SOUND SHOW


  Richard King, Hans Zimmer & Alex Gibson


Thanks to our founder member Etienne Grignon, we can present you a look of the exploration of the sonic world of this summer's blockbuster Batman movie THE DARK KNIGHT presented last October 27th at the Egyptian Theatre, Los Angeles

Oscar and Golden Reel winning supervising sound editor/sound designer Richard King ("War of the Worlds" "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" "Signs") as he presents his process of creating the film's soundscape. Excerpts of the movie were presented with special "pre-dubb" mixes to illustrate the variety of elements used to create an environment of serious sound.

  

Also in the mix: award winning music editor Alex Gibson ("Natural Born Killers" "The Prestige" "John Adams") with very special guest Hans Zimmer who revealed the way the musical score was shaped to fit the dark narrative of good and evil.

As an extra special attraction, all of the sound was played through a state-of-the-art audio system developed by Meyer Sound Laboratories so that you could hear every subtle and explosive element.
