  1. Skimmed through the score album now. Yeah, it's what I suspected. More 'suite'-y versions of what you hear in the film, WITHOUT the ticking (in the film it runs all the way through), and in some cases (such as The Mole, The Oil etc) it's cut down versions of what you hear in the film. But holy fuck, listening to Variation 15 and the End Titles again (presented as in the film unlike everything else)....feeling a lump in my throat.
  2. The only way you can have a film version be a good listening experience is if it's all presented as one, not separate tracks. Think an interview somewhere or the production notes mention that the score as heard in the film is meant to be one long piece. The key really is the 'chopping and screwing' that Nolan's sound editors are doing on this, ESPECIALLY the slow downs/speed ups within cues going along the action on screen.
  3. Back from it a second time...some thoughts on the score: I'm now even more curious how the album will handle it. I listened to Supermarine a fair number of times after last week, so I had it fairly fresh in mind...but the sound editors don't present anything as you hear on the album. Take Supermarine - that 8 minute track is sped up, slowed down, chopped and pasted all throughout the entire runtime. Listening to it on its own is probably like - an an analogy - watching The Air sections of the film as one without intercutting to The Mole and The Sea. I'd imagine the rest of the score is similar in this way in terms of how the album will present it. All in all, @Yourfavoratemusic is gonna have a hell of a job putting together a 'film version' mix when the time comes!
  4. no full orchestra, yes. but orchestral instruments experimenting with the ticking/rising motif. the thing is - there's no real theme/melody until the end credits roll. again - in context it's fantastic, out of context though, you be the judge
  5. Saw film tongiht. Zimmer's score is so different - think Interstellar's Imperfect Lock but a whole score like that (can't imagine what it'll be like on the album as it very much works best in context, like Johannsson's Arrival score but not as bad thinking about outside context) but absolutely excellent. rest of thoughts on film https://letterboxd.com/antovolk/film/dunkirk-2017/1/
  6. First clip
  7. Reactions: https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/article/dunkirk-buzz-see-the-first-reactions-to-christopher-nolans-new-war-movie/ Best I've read - INCEPTION meets THE LONGEST DAY
  8. fair point. but he has said in interviews that the film is structured as a race against time survival story - even more so than his previous films, and the prologue backs that up.
  9. Implying this isn't exactly what the marketing, prologue, and the interviews have been selling (ok except maybe the second trailer)
  10. I've seen the prologue and watched the trailers and spots on repeat multiple times so am adequately ready for that aspect LOL. I'm seeing it in 6 days, not long to wait
  11. Let's get the thread going for this. http://www.dga.org/Craft/DGAQ/All-Articles/1703-Summer-2017/WWII-Dunkirk.aspx
  12. It appears with Whedon finishing the film for Snyder, Junkie XL is out http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/justice-league-danny-elfman-compose-score-1013319
  13. Blu-ray's out July 25 btw. Guess until it leaks somehow, rips from the surround tracks will be the best we have...
