Yep. He will be in Nightwing's next solo movie<br>I think we all agree, Lorne Balfe is getting better and better, he's working at the speed of light and handles many different genres. Plus, he seems to be a very cool person. I'm really happy he got there, and I believe he'll be getting some major movies in the next few years (Terminator Genysis, Geostorm & Ghost in the Shell don't count, they were predicted failures undergoing a damage control process).<br><br>But anyway, I think his best solo score is still Home.Maybe there is a big surprise and Disc 2 is different from the actual release. If you look at the download files you see 01-01 to 01-24. I think Disc 2 must be named 02-01, 02-02...etc.Can I ask why there is no page made for The Nut Job 2 by Heitor Pereira?I'm not upset, nor am I disinterested in Balfe's work. Don't get me wrong. I welcome any and all discussion! But there's a difference between "discussion" and "blind fanboy gushing", and I've seen way more of the latter here this year than the former.
Have to agree because if you havenít an interest in Lorneís work then just donít goto his films topics ! Either way I like the suite here good old school MVIf you have an issue with Balfe simply donít click on Geostorm etc! Just ignore it . God knows why Edmund gets so upset !!!! You donít have to read the postsThis is already a much more interesting conversation than all the blind praise that was being spilled earlier. Thanks guys! :DEverybody is free to love whatever music they want, but I agree that the Balfe praise is a bit over the top. I mean I saw a comment that said that all of Balfe's scores from 2017 were the best of their genre which I think is over the top. I mean nothing against Balfe, he's a very good composer, but I just don't think he deserves all that praise about him being the best.Anything, @LP. I myself have spent several hours of my life listening Balfe's work and, of course, commenting here.<br><br>It's okay to get on a page and say "this is the best score of all ages" or "this is the worst shit I've ever heard", as long as this behavior is restricted to a minority who has make the mistake of making this kind of comment because not listened to many jobs of the same composer or of other composers or who do not respect his efforts to carry out the work.<br><br>
> Waymann - Ramin did good work on A Mountain Between us.  Completely atypical of his recent outputs, and showed more range.  It is rooted a bit in his work on Hans' rom-com scores (i.e. The Holiday) and sounds excellent overall.Just wondering, why would anyone have an issue with people who go into a Lorne Balfe soundtrack page to rave about the work of Lorne Balfe?I'm not saying that I don't like his music, because I really do, but I think there are also a lot of composers this year that have created amazing scores and they don't get the same talk. Let's mention Ramin Djawadi for The Mountain Between Us, Benjamin Wallfisch for A Cure For Wellness and It, and even outside of RCP like Giacchino with his fantastic War for the Planet of the Apes, Beltrami with The Snowman or the recent Ragnarok by Mothersbaugh (well, this does not belong in this page, so I understand why there is no talk about him).<br>And I repeat that I like Balfe, but not everything he does is perfect, and for example this, I don't consider it too original, because it reminds me to a lot of older scores. And for example, from Balfe I think one of the best was Churchill, and that didn't get much talk or praise neither.I do not think anyone here is hurting because another composer besides of the HZ - JP - HGW triad is being well received by the audience. Well, I agree that this behavior in any session regardless of who the composer is, is very uncomfortable. But we have to understand that each an of the RCP guys has its glory days. Balfe is conquering his. The problem is the proportions of compliments. Many people liked PoTc 5 (best RCP score of the year in my opinion, of course), for example, many also hated, the justifications were many, but the discussion was balanced. If you enter on the forum of  any score of any composer you find diverse but balanced opinions, what is missing in the forums about Balfe scores is this balance. Nothing against the growth of his popularity or the reception of his scores, only the judgments that seem a little too exaggerated. It's even a little weird.Due to Edmund getting upset !!!! Iím scared to ask about if anyone knows about The Florida Project ????
How pathietic that it bothers some ,that some of us are excited about another composers music. Get a life people. Balfe has become a great composer this year so give him a break . If you donít like it , you can find another forumI agree, I'm shocked no one is talking about how great Ramin Djawadi's score is for The Mountain Between Us. Much better than this new Lorne Balfe score, I'm mean really, this Geostorm score is just a constant reminder to other scores from RCP from the past. Nothing original here. Only the track May Day is memorable.I like it too but I don't understand why this thread is full of slobbering fanboys while nobody is talking about, say, Kingsman 2 which is just as good. I don't want to stop anyone talking about his music but did we really need every day this year for someone to go "oh my god I can't wait for Lorne to release another unreleased cue from Ghost in the Shell"? It doesn't contribute anything meaningful and makes this site look even more like a YouTube comments section than it already does.Your right Edmund ..... how dare we take about any other composer apart from Zimmer or John Powell!  Thankfully your point of view is in the minority. There is obviously a reason why he is one of the busiest composers . Geostorm isnít original BUT itís great music and I like it at leastI couldn't agree with you more JBSO99. I don't know what's up this year because a ton of Balfe fanboys seem to have crawled out of the woodwork. He's having a very solid year but people are acting like every score he puts out is a masterpiece or something, which...nah.

There's a new, 6-minute promotional video, and I'm 100% sure all of the music is from the score. And it sounds really nice! I hope there will be an album release.

Watch it here: allocine.fr/article/fichearticle_gen_carticle=18641720.html

I'm pretty sure its Zimmer & Harvey, the music around 2 minute reminds me Zimmer's music for Celebrate Oscar

The trailer says "Music by Hans Zimmer and Richard Harvey"!


Anonymous2015-04-30 03:29:35
Richard Harvey did some stuff on The Da Vinci Code :D


...2015-04-30 09:20:28
Lots of collaborations this year.


jsdamian2015-04-30 16:07:00
is original the trailer music?

The music of international trailer 1 is good

The film will premier in Cannes! Hope we can have the album soon after that!

I really hope the stay true to the dreamy tone of the book. HZ will have to create another genre here, like Interstellar or Inception, or Batman Begins before that, or . . . ah, screw this list! Pirates! (Had to say it.)


RealFfingMusic2014-12-14 06:42:10
USE YOUR OWN F**KING NAME!!! Grrrr . . .

I have read the book, the tone is kinda like Corpse Bride of 2005. It is a very seripous and deep book, NOT "Dreamy"!


RealFfingMusic2014-12-14 06:43:28
*serious*. And by tone, I meant narrative.


Zimson2014-12-14 11:42:38
I expect something like Hugo or Amelie (see trailer music). It seems like they adapted the film for the 21st century.


jsdamian2014-12-24 14:32:29
is the trailer music part of the score?

I hope, it's beautiful

New project for Hans, if he can really manage to put it in his schedule ! lol


Zimson2014-12-10 13:15:10
First thing I thought.^^ He's really going to be busy that year.


Anonymous2014-12-10 15:09:12
ha...yeah, and he'll probably end up only writing 10 minutes of music tops for KFP3... :P so that shouldn't be a problem... lol


Anonymous2014-12-10 15:13:21
mmm, to be honest, this sounds like one of those projects that will only carry his name for marketing purposes. While I won't be surprised if he ends up contributing a thing or two, I do wonder who's going to do the bulk of the job on this.

Is Powell returning for the third Panda film, btw? If not it'd be fun to have Jackman scoring it with Zimmer. A little throwback to the original film's style, perhaps?


Anonymous2014-12-11 07:15:08
He will probably score the new Nancy Meyers movie too. It is called "The Intern" I think.

It took me a while to realize that it's based on that "coelhian" collection of painfully simplistic and obvious truths, that somehow reached cult status. Drinking and greed are bad bad bad = yay for literary legend!


Lambegue2014-12-10 13:00:02
I also hoped for a moment that it would be an adaptation of the original book...So much can be done with it...And it would have been such an unusual assignment for Hans !
