Hans Zimmer's DUNKIRK


Recommended Posts

Nolan loves MacGruber!? He has just gone way up in my personal opinion of him as a human being.

 

"MacGruber! Making life-saving inventions out of house-hold materials! MacGruber! Getting in and out of ultra-sticky situations! MacGruber! The guys' a fricken genius! MacGruber!!!!!!"

 

Or my personal favourite -

"MacGruber! Pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi!" MacGruber! Pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi pepsi! MacGruber! Get the guy a pepsi! MacGruber! PEPSI!!!

This approach to wanting films to be almost ascetic in their storytelling, or that those kind of films are somehow "purer," is such horse crap to me.  These are tricks that storytellers have been usin

Are we gonna have a bunch of interviews with Nolan and/or Zimmer again telling us how profound the music for this film is?

 

I mean I love the Interstellar score, but that got tedious really fast.

 

The worst part of any Nolan film release. It's going to be a long month ahead.

I prefer Hans Gruber myself. 

 

If a MacGruber sequel isn't made with his father being revealed as Hans Gruber, then life isn't worth it anymore.

People did the same with Marianelli's Atonement. Is it a Dunkirk tradition?

 

That was a type- writer no?

Speaking of Atonement, I've said it before and I'll say it again; what that film did with that incredible one-shot of Dunkirk with a thousand extras used and brilliantly choreographed cannot be beaten. It's the pinnacle Dunkirk images that I've seen on-screen.

Yeah, it's too bad Wright's career has kind of fizzled after those early highs.

Yes, but everyone acted like its use was the second coming of Christ. 

 

Forget the typewriter. The music itself is great stuff.

I liked them both quite a bit, but didn't think they were as great as P&P or Atonement.  I couldn't even finish Pan it was so shitty.  Never saw The Soloist.

 

 

I remember enjoying the Soloist. Saw it when it first came out, but not since.

First clip

 

Is that music a joke? It seems wildly out of place...

Hannah's still my favourite Joe Wright film and score. Everything else of his that I've seen was so listlessly middlebrow and straining for some kind of significance.

Looks like Hoytema is going for the 'soaked the negative in absinthe' look he gave to Insterstellar.

I just wasn't expecting a scene where people have a calm conversation on a boat to be scored as if the Joker was chasing Harvey Dent...

 

I imagine this is a quick scene that goes between two more tenser scenes.. I cant remember if this was part of the prologue in IMAX either

I hate the term "middlebrow."  I guess that means I'm middlebrow.

 

I think his first two films are brimming with passion and emotions, beautifully staged and acted character work.

 

I really liked his Karenina adaptation as well.  His staging of scenes is always fascinating.  Not sure what happened with Pan.  Just wrong.

There are several scores on that list that don't belong anywhere near a top 100 list.

 

---

 

Just watched the Dunkirk clip - wow, what a wildly inappropriate musical tone. I appreciate that it may be within a larger energy-building part of the film, but could Zimmer not at least try to pretend we're in the '40s?

You mean by having swing music and jazz?

 

I, for one, am very glad they're not going out of their way to capture the period, or any 'convential' style of the WW2 genre. It doesn't seem to be a period piece anyway, even if itakes place in the 40s. The focus seems to be somewhere else altogether.
