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' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<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.

Now here's a Disney remake I'm actually looking forward to. Are Nick Glennie-Smith or Mark Mancina returning? It's been a while since either of them have worked on a score with Hans, but this does seem to be a "getting the band back together" sort of project.

Side note, James Earl Jones sounds a lot better here than he has in recent Star Wars projects. Less tired. I know he's in his late 80s, so he deserves real slack, but his voice just sounds stronger here.


Hybrid Soldier2018-11-23 13:02:29
I can't believe Nick won't conduct this... Not sure he would have any interest in writing for it though... I'd hope, but I doubt...


Macejko2018-11-24 13:53:59
Yeah, that might be because his monologue in this teaser is lifted straight from the original movie, Mike.


...2018-11-24 17:52:35
Hybrid, are there any plans to make a HZ.com forum? would be nice!


Mike2018-11-24 20:34:07
It is lifted straight from the original as far as the lines, but it's definitely a new recording.


Macejko2018-11-24 20:45:04
The "Everything the light touches is our kingdom" line is identical with the original. Take a listen yourself.


Sideshow Bob2018-11-24 22:20:57
It may be identical but it’s clearly a brand new recording, probably just for the teaser. James Earl Jones sounds quite aged in it! Just like he does in Rogue One.


Mephariel2018-11-25 10:16:20
Definitely a new recording. The music sounds slightly different as well.


DT-11382019-03-10 10:03:25
I think the first line is from the 1994 film, while the rest is all new. It just sounds too 'different' from the rest.

Also, intrigued as to whether this score will be as copy-paste as the film appears to be. Hoping Zimmer doesn't do that, I remember reading on here he would have liked the chance to change the score a little.

There are these Lion King 2019 music tracks on the Simba YouTube channel... are those real?


Alexander2019-01-26 23:12:39
No there are not. Those are Parts of the „world of Hans Zimmer“ Show. You Can find the Full Show on YouTube as well :)
