If anyone's been watching NBC lately, you'd know that they were heavily hyping up thier made for TV movie Merlin. There's a celtic like track (kind of like enya) that plays in most of the commercials. Anyone know what that is? I didn't catch the movie myself so I don't know if it was also in the movie. Thanks.

The music is the same as used in the film. I have the boxed laserdisc set with the extra footage and I listened to it several times. The music is the same, just mixed slighlty differently and edited. The music on the disc is the same in the film just in the unchanged form. I also listened to my THX laserdisc of Die Hard and you can tell it's the same only edited to fit the scene.

Fox simply used it because McTiernan used it in the temp track along with Man on Fire and since both were released by Fox in this country, they didn't have to license it since they already technically owned it.

The music in a film and on a disc sound allot different sometimes because they music used in the film is mixed differently to the directors taste and to fit the surround system used. Whereas the disc version is taken from the master recordings and usually mixed the way the composer likes it since they oversee or produce most of the discs themselves.

Ask Danny Elfman how pissed he was at Burton for how he mixed and buried his Batman Returns score. It happens all the time.

Ok Ok, let me clarify. The music in Die Hard is not the music used at the end of Aliens in the actual film. It is however on the Aliens cd.

20th Century Fox never used it in Aliens, but decided to put it at the end of Die Hard since Horner composed it anyways.

Watch the movie and you will see that it is different. I got the remastered letterboxed video of Aliens for Christmas...which is great by the way. The music they play in Aliens the movie, not cd, is used in alot of trailers and is easy to recognize.

Doug,

Yes, the music used at the end of Die Hard was the SAME music as originally intended for Aliens. Apparently, it had been temptracked with that music, and considering both movies were Fox releases, it was a bit easier getting licensing rights to the music, and they bought it.

Sorry to disappoint....

By the way, I got Follow Your Dreams 2, and in the liner notes, it says that a third volume is also available, subtitled "The Hans Zimmer Crew" I can only imagine that it's rare bits from the gang at Media Ventures. I would hope for a certain cue from Speed 2 and perhaps some of Mancina's early trailer work.

Bleus

I bought Black Rain months ago and it was one of the coolest thing I've ever spent money on. About twenty minutes of score in 4 track and all of them are great. Good themes, good synths, good action music, first action score from Zimmer, a must have for every fan of Zimmer, including you, Bleus. Buy it while you have the chance.

On another note, I bought The Replacement Killers several week ago and here's my view; An exemplary score by HGW, but it could have been better. There are about 12 track in the CD, three themes, the two note action theme, a five note descending "John's Theme", and a cello theme. The theme for Chow Jun-Fat's character is very sad. It is a shorter and slower version of the piano theme in track 4,5,6, of Whole Wide World. The action them is short, two-note with some variation in the later cue of the CD and is filled with percussions, sometimes in the style of Face/Off. Speaking of Face/Off, the cello theme is reminscent of the style used in Powell's score, very mellow and sad also.
The score have to be listen through and through to be appreciated. There are one or two cues which were too ambient for its own good and should have been eliminated from the compilation.
All and all, it is dramatically different from his symphonic stuff featured in The Borrowers, it did not sound like Eric Serra's stuff but better in term of consistency and quality. It's not for everybody, but for those interested really listen to this, it's better than it seems.

Hey guys, I don't mean to be rude, but I don't think the music at the end of Die Hard is the same as the Aliens. I know what part you are talking about:
Die Hard: where the blond evil guy gets shot by Al
Aliens: The final airlock scene

While they may seem to sound the same, they are different. Horner may have done a filler for Kamen, but it was originally scored for Die hard.

By the way, I stayed for the end of Scream 2 and Zimmer was credited for his music....just like it was a song. The title was Brothers, which is a track on Broken Arrow.

Any advanced word on the Deep Impact music?

Scream 2/Broken Arrow
Jon
E-mail:
Location: Norway

Just saw Scream 2. What can I say? Composer Marco Beltrami probably didn't feel too well after having seen the final version of the film. Firstly, the producers used some Danny Elfman music in addition to Beltrami's score (I don't know what part that was) and then they of course used Zimmer's Broken Arrow, lifted DIRECTLY from the film! I think it's the first time I've seen something like it. Did Zimmer get a credit in the End Credits? I think he really deserves it.. Apart from Beltrami's Main Theme (the ambient synth line with the sound effects - cool, but they used it too little IMHO) it was the Broken Arrow music that people responded to I think.

Hallo.....

Yes, Jon, Greencard is a fantastic score. Along the lines of Driving Miss Daisy....

But, it is not long out of print. In fact, it should be quite easy to find at any major record store. It might even be a budget buy if you get lucky : )

Recommendation: There are only four score tracks on it, but the reason to buy the City of Angels soundtrack. Nope, hell must have frozen over, because the reason to buy this soundtrack is the songs. Alanis Morissette's Uninvited, U2's If God Will Send His Angels, Goo Goo Dolls' Iris (especially this one), Peter Gabriel, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix....oh yeah, and some lovely string work from Gabriel Yared, lol. See the film, buy the soundtrack, you'll thank me for it : )

The two Zimmer tracks on Cool Runnings totals about 8 minutes or something, but I actually enjoy them. I bought my copy cheap though, I wouldn't pay full-price for it.

The Green Card CD is 45 minutes, with about half an hour of Zimmer. That score is terrific and long out-of-print I guess, so get it before it disappears. I wish Zimmer would deliver more scores in the GC-vein, with pure synths and not that sampled orchest ra.

Hadrian,

The soundtrack that's out now features two cues from Michael Kamen's pilot episode, "Can We Do This?" As you know, several different composers like Mancina and Mark Isham will score various episodes. Ideally, they'd release snippets from each of the sco res on one CD, but I very much doubt they'll do it. But who knows, the series is doing phenomenally well, commercially and critically, so anything's possible.

Zimmer. The best action movie composer.
Frank Hummel
E-mail: hummel@mx2.redestb.es
Location: Spain

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
Do you wanna make a good trailer?. Just take some high action scenes from the movie and add to it some Zimmer music, and you've got it. Here in Spain we could see lots of movie trailers with his music and most of the times they are better than the movie i tself. Some examples: The Saint trailer with Crimson Tide music , The Lost World (Backdraft), Hard Rain (The Rock), Most Wanted (The Rock), Armaggedon (The Rock). But that's not all. Here in Spain you could hear some Zimmer's music even in TV commercials and sport shows. You can enjoy soccer half-time with The Rock music, X-files trailers with a strange female choir version of Crimson Tide.
I hope you can understand what I'm saying but here in Spain english classes are like "Could I have smoe more sugar in my coffee, please?", "My tailor is rich", "It's a quarter past nine and I'm late for my piano lessons".

Goodbye Zimmer fans.

Well, Doug I can tell you that if you like the music in the movie, you'll probably like it too on CD.

Good stuff, but I'll also suggest that you buy the Warriors compilation first to test is first, safety above all else ya know. It's a two CD compilation with over 2 hours of score suites and cues from Goldsmith, Horner, Wa xman, Moross, North, Rozsa(is that right?) etc, and absolutely no Williams.

I was just watching Brannagh's "Henry V" and I was surprised how good the music was. One theme I have heard many times in trailers. Anyone have the CD? Any Good?

Chris, "From the Earth to the Moon" is a different kind of patriotic, a more traditional anthem, than "Con Air". "Con Air" was only patriotic for track 7 (or 8...i can't remember) while the rest is rock/synthesizer stuff. FTETTM had no synths except durin g a fire sequence. Just to clarify.

Thanks for the info on "Armeggedon" Mike. I always look forward to a kick ass soundtrack. I haven't heard one in awhile. I've had to resort to older, softer soundtracks like "Vertigo", "Murder in the First", and "Empire of the Sun" lately. I've been depri ved since "The Peacemaker". OHHH I forgot "The Man in the Iron Mask". That was really good too.

I've had "Green Card" for months now and it is still at the top of my listening list. I think it is becoming my favorite of Zimmer's beside "Crimson Tide".

BTW, Anyone out there play Jedi Knight? I am looking for someone to play with on the internet.

Doug -- Trevor Rabin is scoring Armageddon. If the trailer is any indication, we may have a premier action score on our hands. The music in the trailer is patriotic, rhythmic, and highly melodic. I'm told that it WAS part of Rabin's score, but that rem ains to be seen......

Congratulations to Anne Dudley and James Horner, even though I felt only one of these people deserved their honor. I haven't seen the film, but I hear that there was only about 10 minutes of score in the film. Fact or fiction? Anyway, I really felt the Comedy Score Award should have gone to Danny Elfman. (For those of you wondering, I'm predicting an Elfman dynasty in this category in the next few years) BTW, there are two animated projects ahead this year, Mulan (scored by Jerry Goldsmith) and Princ e of Egypt (scored by Zimmer). I wonder, how will these scores be nominated? Yes, these films are animated, but I know that neither should be considered comedies, or musicals. Considering the caliber of the films and composers, I'm sure it's a question that will be answered come next February.

Speaking of the Oscars, did anyone catch the music that was played during "In Memoriam," which was the tribute to all the entertainers who died this year? It was a lush, moving string piece from Michael J. Lewis' The Passage. Lewis is a composer I've ju st recently become familiar with. He has an incredible gift for melodic love themes, as well as a firm grasp on action material. I'm not over-hyping this, folks, this man is a truly underrated composer. His work is magnificent, and most of it can only be found in promo format over at Intrada.com. For a real sampling of his work, I suggest the $29.99 2 CD Orchestral Film Music compilation. It has the music from the Oscars, as well as about 10 other films. This is a fantastic talent!

Well, well, it seems I've rambled again, lol : )

Until next time....

Hey HZ fans,
I am in search of the soundtrack to one of my favorite movies,
"Regarding Henry". From what I heard its printing was stopped right after the movie came out and is currently very rare. If anybody knows where I can get it or has any information about the soundtrack I would be very thankful to hear from you. Marty.

I caught it. Michael Kamen did the first episode. Sounded great...almost like Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Mancina's episode was much more subdued. It was about the fire
on Apollo 1 and the following hearings. The music sounded nothing
like Mancina....very patriotic. It had alot of ER qualities to it with just a piano and synth. I liked it.

Is Mancina doing the Armegeddon? I hope so. If it is the music in the trailer for it (like ConAir), it will be awesome. His music comes on after a sample of the rock.

Hey Michael Steiner,
Its been about a month or so I think since you posted a message
offering some sealed "Regarding Henry" music, I am very interested if you have not yet sold them yet. If you could please
contact me with details on the music.
Thanks a Lot.

Hello Zanimators,

Slow month eh? Well, the maintainer of this page, Brian Tiemann, erased my post last month. Well, phooey to you Brian.

Let's see, Full Monty sucks, it got the Oscar. They had choreography on the Best score musical or comedy. Will make a .mov file on it as soon as I figure out how to do it.

I remember the time Hans got the Oscar for Lion King. I didn't see the telecast but I saved the Los Angeles Times Calendar section. It had a small quote from Hans saying "My daughter thinks I'm cool because I did the Lion King." I also read in an old post he thanked Jeffery Katzenberg. I also believe he had to have thanked his wife, Suzanne, Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin, Lebo M., and numerous others I really can't remember.

I remember what Lebo said about Hans, "I always believed Hans was the most celebrated composer in the world."

That's all Zuttnuggets.

Jon,

I think Chris asked Hans that question and Hans said something about copyrights and other crapola that makes it so he can't release his stuff. Go into Media Ventures site and into Ask Hans archives. I think you'll find the answer there.

Alicia :)

My Shout-out:
Hello all Zanimators, Marknuggets, and all other composer fans!

So you will CALL Hans, eh? Good, greet him from me and ask him if he will go on releasing all his music that are unreleased. There are a lot of music that never made it to record. Also, ask him if he have any plans of releasing a compilaton album, lets sa y a double CD with cues from a lot of his movies. And, will he score Enenmy Of The State for Tony Scott?

Hello, all you Zuttnuggets!


Last time it was '96, now it's on to '97. Well, as many of you know, I study up carefully before answering.

Florian: Well, Hans middle name came to a shocker to most of you but in fact, it is German! Yes, I looked it up in my little name dictionary and "Florian" in German means "Flowering." So, for those of you still pondering on his name forget it. Also on a s ide note: Hans is also German, to call someone a hans (that is, if it's not their name) means you are calling them a "jack of all trades." Marco should know this. But the name Hans means "Gracious Gift of God, " Hans is actually the short form of Johannes .

I have noticed that numerous people who have posted on the board always seem to pull a Yumbo. Yep. This phrase "to pull a Yumbo" means to make up a word using a composers name combined with another word. I have pulled numerous Yumbo's. Chris, I'm not maki ng fun of you, just making up new things for all of us Zuttnuggets and Zanimators. I love it.

Another side note, next week I will call Hans Zimmer. If you want me to ask him a question, email me or post it here on the Zoard.
(Is it just me, or am I pulling a lot of Yumbo's? :) )

Lebo M fans, found yet another track with Lebo on it. You won't believe the name of the album though. It's Rock-A-Bye Baby: Songs for Children. I laughed the first time I read it.

Made up some interesting songs and a poem on Hans. Sent it to Yumbo, now have to send it to Brian.

Well, that's all for me. Hope you all enjoy a nice bowl of Zocoflakes: The Breakfast of Composers. Ha, ha! Another Yumbo!
