  1. What is Balfe doing that "classier" composers like Desplat, Shearmur, Arnold and McNeely aren't? Do they not want to be involved in projects like this? Are they lacking some appealing working method that Zimmer and his crew have perfected? Is Balfe just cheaper? I like the guy. His audio commentary on the MI6 blu-ray is excellent. I just fail to put 2-and-2 together when he says things like "I wrote my guts out" and the end result is the score we had. Really?
  2. I generally hate them - look at the Ocean's Eleven soundtracks for example - but when done tastefully, they can really work. For example, Jeff Bridges in the opening track of Tron: Legacy, Morgan Freeman in War Of The Worlds, and the "radio" transitions/ads on Tarantino compilations.
  3. I'm not even angry this time...just disappointed.
  4. Solo, or How To Train Your Dragon 3
  5. Less E.T., more Scherzo For Motorcycle And Orchestra.
  6. As far as I am aware, the only Williams cues to feature in the game are Anakin's Dark Deeds, Anakin's Betrayal and Jango's Escape.
  7. I assume it's what you hear at :25 into Couldn't Find The Words.
  8. Is the original post available to read anywhere?
  9. Cancel the cinema release and put it on streaming services. If we all end up isolated, at least let us watch it at home.
  10. The cynical part of me thinks they're worried people won't go and see it and they'll make less money. The other part of me is enjoying some of the responses. "Just rename it "Time To Die" and release it."
  11. The game only uses 3 existing bits of JW music: Jango's Escape, Anakin's Betrayal and Anakin's Dark Deeds. Everything else is completely original (nearly 5 hours worth).
  12. I hadn't noticed the similarities to Evolution, but you're right! That last set of clips (HHTYD extended theme) - it reminds me more of something from Horton Hears A Who or possibly Ice Age.
  13. Minimal. In fact there were a few really short cues that I thought "I hope they don't take up album space". Every highlight I remembered is on the album, some potentially presented even better on it than in the film (the second half of Buck Takes The Lead is mostly inaudible in the movie, buried under SFX).
  14. Here's a significantly better cover courtesy of Ant over at FSM.
  15. That's my favourite of the posters so far. Could make a good album cover.
  16. May I suggest giving this playlist a try. Equal parts fun whilst introducing some of the more dramatic and moving material in the second half. 01. Wake The Girls (2:37) 02. Skagway, Alaska (2:31) 03. Snowy Climb (1:25) 04. Joining The Team (2:59) 05. Buck Takes the Lead (4:55) 06. We Carry Love (3:02) 07. The Ghost Wolf Of Dreams (1:06) 08. Couldn’t Find The Words (2:22) 09. Buck And Thornton’s Big Adventure (4:36) 10. Finding Bears And Love In The Woods (2:57) 11. Rewilding (3:48) 12. Come Say Goodbye (2:09) 13. Ice Rescue (2:26) 14. What An Adventure (3:02) 15. The Call Of The Wild (2:51)
  17. I'm just as excited by the new RPO recordings of all the title themes!
  18. Could also be a rehearsal for the Brit Awards performance next week.
  19. If you look on Cary Fukanaga's Instagram story currently, there's a video of him in the studio with Zimmer. With a high-pitched drone sound playing in the background, Zimmer says "I just know we can make more interesting things. I just know were can make more interesting things than the one that was in.". There's something amusing about this. Funny yet exactly the kind of thing I'd expect.
  20. Is anybody familiar with what the differences are in the "film versions" on disc 2? They're not immediately noticeable.
  21. While not as big in scale or complexity as Solo or HTTYD, some of the most satisfying Powell scores are: Paycheck Mr. & Mrs. Smith Ferdinand Chicken Run Bolt The Italian Job Evolution Hancock
  22. As far as score goes, there are an awful lot of call backs to Silvestri's previous MCU music...but I wasn't that frustrated by it...it sort of worked and made sense, even if there were some clear copy-and-paste jobs. I'm pretty sure a couple of scenes tracked in some battle music from Infinity War, and near the very end, an entire cue from the first Captain America. It brought more themes back than any Marvel movie so far, although most only appeared once and I doubt would be noticed by the casual moviegoer. The ones I remember are: Silvestri's SHIELD, Avengers, and Black Widow themes from Avengers 1 Silvestri's Captain America theme (and a couple of cues in near entirety) and the Tesseract theme from Captain America 1 Silvestri's Thanos, "Porch" and "No More Surprises" themes and battle motif from Infinity War Giacchino's Doctor Strange theme Toprak's Captain Marvel theme Beck's Ant-Man theme It mostly sounded like it was redone by Silvestri though - not just tracked in from the original recordings bar a couple of instances. I'm very curious to hear the soundtrack and how much truly "original" material there is. The big memorable "new" stuff is definitely going to be in the final third of the album.
  23. Giacchino working on a live-action/animated musical with Brad Bird https://screenrant.com/brad-bird-live-action-animated-musical/
