New YouTube playlist: <br>Hans Zimmer - Film Scores. <br>youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_nVB9Q77N9h-iKbNe7ZWrQHjiy_ vla_glc<br><br>I don't understand how they chose that cover:<br>Time (arr. guitar) [Music Lab Collective]<br>youtube.com/watch?v=YGCFdR--u5M<br><br>Strength and honor!<br><br>One of this score's best and most underrated moments, especially in the context of the film, is the introduction of the Kraken's theme in "Row to Tia Dalma". The tense buildup while Gibbs describes the creature's horrors, then the brief pause as he names it, followed by the theme in the absolute lowest registers of the orchestra, quiet, but so so so menacing and also just SUPER FUCKING COOL.<br><br>It gives me goosebumps every time, in a *dialogue scene*. That is incredibly good musical storytelling.Edmund: And posted their one-sentence review of it on the Hans Zimmer fan site.Anything missed from the official release?oh damn really? huh that would be cool. even with the ultimate edition there’s still deleted scenes and I wish they were put on the Blu ray.<br><br>it plays during the scene after the knightmare when Clark is looking through the polaroids that say judge jury executioner on them. i don’t remember if that’s an extended scene or not as I’ve only seen the theatrical cut once in theaters. one and done lol
"Chicken Run really makes you FEEL like you're in a concentration camp." - IGNI guess it comes from a deleted scene where Jesse Eisenberg gets playful with his dinner. Rumor has it it's gonna be included in the Snyder Cut.I love the notion of Barack Obama and IGN teaming up to review 20 year old film scores.Smoothly done soundtrack. IGN - 10/10what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????
I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !
I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happy

HANS ZIMMER TO SCORE HILLBILLY ELEGY



Hans Zimmer has confirmed to Hans-Zimmer.com that he is currently scoring Ron Howard’s next film, Hillbilly Elegy.

The film, produced by Netflix and Imagine Entertainement, stars Amy Adams, Gabriel Basso, Glenn Close & Haley Bennett and is tentatively set for a fall 2020 release date. Hans is scoring Hillbilly Elegy with the help of composer David Fleming (The Perfect Guy, Blue Planet II), who recently worked with Hans on Dark Phoenix, The Lion King & Wonder Woman 1984.

This marks Hans & Ron Howard’s second project this year after the documentary Rebuilding Paradise.

Any news about Rebuilding Paradise soundtrack?


Jack Afrogarrix2020-07-31 23:38:06
I hope they can the soundtrack release for "Rebuilding Paradise" composed by Hans zimmer & Lorne balfe, including an original song for the film. I hope there is a possibility that they will release the score.


Mephariel2020-08-01 00:04:57
What was the last Zimmer documentary score that they released outside of BBC?

I am still waiting for The Great Bear Rainforest.


Hybrid Soldier2020-08-01 00:54:46
A score will be released.

You can always count on Lorne for that. It's in the works.


Jack Afrogarrix2020-08-01 04:07:30
Thanks Hybrid soldier for the good news
I can't wait to see the documental film and hear the score of lorne balfe & hans zimmer.


elgordo2020-08-02 09:09:26
I know it's a far stretch for Hans To release docu scores, but am really curious as to what Brave Miss World, Believer and Jalous of the Birds sound like...


@Mephariel
You can find Great Bear Rainforest on bleedingfingersmusic.com under Anze Rozman


Knight2020-08-17 15:08:01
Is there any news of the Rebuilding Paradise score release? It's been almost half a month now :/


Mephariel2020-08-17 16:55:48
Has anyone watched Rebuilding Paradise or Spongebob and can tell us what the scores are like?

E284 reply Replies: 6 || 2020-08-07 07:17:22
The Spongebob movie is being released next Friday here in Canada, could we see a release of the album soon? Assuming of course that there will be an album at all /:


Hybrid Soldier2020-08-07 07:41:32
I doubt there'll be a score release.


Edmund Meinerts2020-08-07 08:28:53
Whoa, why not? Every obscure random shit gets released these days but a Hans Zimmer score to a fairly big mainstream movie doesn't?


HunterTech2020-08-07 09:29:12
If there'd only been the first movie prior, I think I'd get it a bit more. But the 2nd film did have a proper score release, so the only reason at this point is that it just isn't on Nick's mind after all the delays.


MrZimmerFan2020-08-07 11:04:58
And about The Rhythm Section?, Mazzaro said the score is mastered...


Hybrid Soldier2020-08-07 11:32:23
The album is ready. Just waiting for legal to settle it... It'll happen.


MrZimmerFan2020-08-07 12:16:26
Oh, yes.

Maybe this month, right?

Does anyone know how is Hans doing in all this situation ? I mean the pandemic.


Mephariel2020-03-28 03:52:09
I hope he is shelled up writing music.

Can he even commission an orchestra at all?


Hybrid Soldier2020-03-28 09:54:17
Hans is sheltered at home (but fear not he has a home studio that looks like a mini version of his RCP room haha, so he keeps busy as always). Still working hard.

Plans for his films are a little screwed since everything is postponed and what is not recorded cannot be (I'm thinking SpongeBob) but it's Hans, he can adapt and will find solutions ! :)


theGordo2020-03-28 11:36:47
Just curious, are his WW84, Dune and Top Gun scores already recorded?


Hybrid Soldier2020-03-28 11:50:09
WW84 was completed a while back. Dune, no he's in the middle of it. Last I checked a couple of weeks ago Top Gun was not finished. SpongeBob didn't get the chance to get recorded...

Mephariel reply Replies: 2 || 2020-03-09 22:56:22
So Zimmer has 3 potential Oscar scores this year:

Dune
Hillbilly Elegy
No Time to Die


Joel David2020-03-19 20:40:39
You're forgetting Wonder Woman 1984.
I'm pretty sure it will be an amazing original score. My Lord Hans Zimmer has never disappointed me.
On the other hand, Hillbilly E. will be another job with Mr. Howard, and of course it'll be awesome again. The one I loved the most was RUSH (2013).


Mephariel2020-03-23 06:26:23
I doubt Wonder Woman 1984 would be nominated regardless of how good it is.
