Olive - it totally is unwarranted. <br><br>Your points are very un-educated .<br><br>Ask yourself this .... why has Balfe worked on every Transformere film ?The Majority of Zimmerís films in the last 15 years and according to ASCAP been an equal composer .Captain Philips for Jackman.Ironman for Ramin .....<br><br><br>Okay, I'll wait for the more detailed credits in the release.Yeah, Mazzaro and AK would be more interesting choices, even Balfe.<br><br>Maybe Zimmer has more confidence in Wallfisch? He delivered Verbinsky's "Cure" gratuitously for him and then tied him up on two of his major projects last year.<br><br>When I refer to security, I talk about the "assurance of delivering a good job".Olive - wrong.Balfe has said it is used in the film on Twitter.Geostorm is fun, with a nostalgic nods to the old MV scores.<br><br>And much better than 12 Strong
I know this story... It would be good if JP were like HZ in his public promises. xD<br><br>Well, the fact that Djawadi was not mentioned in the credits confirms that Balfe had not used the theme written by him, right?About the score: Dunkirk's unimaginative copy (regardless of who is the lead author of the Nolan movie score).<br><br>Lego, really, was one of the best scores for animation last year. Churchill is a good accompaniment to the film and Genius is a fun listening with many moments that catch the ear.<br><br>Unfortunately, 12 strong and Geostorm were disappointing, but it is normal for any composer's career to have ups and downs, especially when working with so many numbers in a single year.<br><br>I agree with Mike that there is a very clear difference from when Hans is on a project and when one of his assistants goes to work alone. Pirates, WW and even Tarzan are there as more recent examples, all excellent scores, but you know there's something missing there.<br><br>On the problem with "hate" for Balfe, it is not unwarranted. It is a reaction to the exaggerated attention he has received over the past year, which overlaps with that received by other composers who work with universes with fan platforms far superior to those in which Balfe works. Jablonsky has the billion dollar franchise of the Transformers, Djawadi GoT and Henry Jackman has worked with the Marvel movies. Even Powell's entrance to SW might have made some noise, but nothing. None of these projects received such warm reception from the members of this site as Balfe's latest projects (with the exception of HZ, of course). That bothers me a little.<br><br>Curious to know what he will do with "Pacific Rim".<br><br>A lot of the time when a score's final action/battle sequence is split up among several tracks I edit them together into one track myself in Audacity. The most recent example was Black Panther with "The Great Mound Battle/Glory to Bast/The Jabari, Pt II". And my edit of the final battle music from King Arthur runs nearly 15 minutes. Maybe something similar will be possible for the last few tracks of this score.yeah that's just one though. We'll see!! no info on a release date, on lornes twitter it says it's coming out very soon.
"Shatterdome Attacked", at least we'll get one 7-minute action cue...<br><br>Also. TRACKLIST YOU GET DID WHERE???An agent isn't the problem. Powell is choosing to work less, and only on certain types of movies.Damn the tracks are really short, i was hoping for some long epic music. Hopefully he'll deliver on the epic (I'm sure he will)Giacchino has some points about Powell because of the variety of his work. The man works on several beloved franchises through the pubic and every year makes some score for Pixar. From Powell, so far we've only had Bourne and the animated films from Dreamworks and Blue Sky. That's the only problem with him. The lack of a good agent to get projects beyond the territory conquered by him in the mid-00's.where got you did tracklist have been?
Where did you get the tracklist ???????Where you get the tracklist?<br><br>;)Ian<br>I would rather choose Giacchino over Powell any day.<br>Don't get me wrong, Powell is great but always found Giacchino's Scores much more memorable.<br>The only score made by Powell that i keep listening is Bourne's Supremacy.Ian<br>I would rather choose Giacchino over Powell any day.<br>Don't get me wrong, Powell is great but always found Giacchino's Scores much more memorable.<br>The only score made by Powell that i keep listening is Bourne's Supremacy.And @Ian, re: talent of assistants, to add to your point... Kick It was, according to Hybrid, Hansí theme turned into a suite by Balfe...so even there, with his interesting stuff, the nucleus of it is still Zimmer. If youíre talking about Training from Begins for Djawadi, ditto there. Hans said that was the first theme he (Hans) wrote for the movie. So in both cases, these guys kinda sound best when expanding on Hansí ideas.

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.
