Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.<br><br>I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.Maybe you have a download link?Download link?I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be fun
I love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says'<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.Not any more lame than the Balfe cue
Lorne says it will be released and insists it’s not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lolSo is this how it’s gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(
Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?That’s literally the best part of the score though. But it’s typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)In ASCAP there is a cue "HUNT DRUNKEN WEIRDNESS" - is this by a chance an alias to "Italian Party", which is absent in ASCAP. Though there are different credits Zimmer/Wesson vs Zimmer/Klebe.

The soundtrack to what?

The soundtrack/score is coming from Varese. December, 22nd!

Well, let's not jump the gun here. Zimmer and Powell hadn't done co-composing duties for years, and yet they came back together for the first Kung Fu Panda. Badelt, like Powell, used to work at MV, so it's not inconceivable that he and Zimmer could collaborate again.

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-18 00:00:00
According to Wikipedia, Hans is also set to score "Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom" with John Powell and Klaus Badelt in 2011.

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-09-18 00:00:00
I think that is probably just based on the fact that Zimmer and Powell scored the first film. Wikipedia isn't exactly known for the general reliability of its articles. Of course, it will be completely unsurprising if it turns out to be true...

@ Ravi
You're right!

Hans' minimalistic music can be very touching and powerful too. Look at Spanglish and Frost/Nixon.

@ Daniel N
Indeed, in a way you're right, however, the more kinds of music there is, the better.
Steve is also a guy for big blockbusters. But imagine him without Desperate Housewives!
I feel somehow, in a smaller way of course, the same about Hans. No Holiday or Casi Divas, then there's a big void.

@ Kim, add Henry IV (2009)

@ Adrian: I happen to be of the view that Zimmer's core sound belongs to big, epic adventure. But I realize he can't be doing that all the time.

"it seems like hans zimmer will be busy in the next few months since he needs to score sherlock holmes which is also coming out on christmas day."

No, it seems his minions will probably be busy the next few months

The film seems funny... However the plot seems a bit... cliché... But if it's another The Holiday I'll take it!
Nancy apperantly let Hans think up the name :P

@ Daniel... what's so wrong with The Holiday? A distinctive score by Zimmer is very nice... It's quite lovely as the British would say. They would be right too.

Another The Holiday?

This isn't what Zimmer does best....
