  1. Hmm, I've listened to the two of them recently and I can't remember quick string motifs with ascending minor-triplet low brass motifs.

    God, Batman Begins must have become a VERY popular temp-track...


    Tyler was using those motifs in timeline and children of dune a couple years before batman begins.


    But didn't Hans Zimmer use those motifs and rhythms in Black Rain?

  2. Not the minimalistic one, I think. Tyler refers to the two-note brass motif WITH that string basis, which is again, not Black Rain, but rather King Arthur.

    I havent heard Black Rain so I wouldnt know. Nor King Arthur.


    I heard bits of Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift in some of the action cues, but thats fine with me.
  3. Well, I mean that Batman takes it from Arthur.

    Tokyo Drift is a Rabinesque score.

    Again, Tyler delivering great music with "Rambo"; awesome action tracks with Tyler´s trademark in every cue. Can´t wait to listen it properly.

    Oh, and I like Tyler´s version of Sean Callery´s "Palmer´s Theme" from "24" (at the beginning of "Aftermath" for example). biggrin
    Anything with an orchestra or with a choir....at some point will reach you
  4. Yes, actually Tyler managed NOT to rip off Goldsmith and write something in his vein, even if that vein is very influenced by others. I hear lots of Zimmer/MV here (in action music and in the slower theme). I like the Copland influences, which he took from the original Rambo scores. I do wish I heard It's a Long Road a bit more or maybe a bit more of solo trumpet here and there. I like the melodic action theme.

    THe only thing that really bothers me here is the Batman Begins-like sound at times.

    Uh huh. So is Annapolis and they are both Tyler "doing Rabin better than Rabin does Rabin" as I have said many times before.
  5. Annapolis is more Horner meets Zimmer. Some Rabinesque elements, yes, but one theme is almost pure Zimmer and Tyler even steals a rhythm from Horner.

    which theme is zimmer?
  6. I'd say The Brigades is pretty Zimmerish. OK, Showdown is more like Rabin.

    Funny cause the strings in The Brigades is a perfect example of the 'batman begins' motifs I was referring to in prior tyler scores.

    Rambo is truly impressive work from Brian, some of the most grittiest action music that we rarely receive from Zimmer and company. It is like Annapolis on steroids, wow!

    I guess the track listing is similar to Annapolis as well as some of the music. What you get when you mix that score with War, but I just love how Tyler writes a score better than Zimmer.

    JoBlo gave this film a very positive review so this may be the first good film Tyler has scored.

    Tyler's Rambo, IMHO, is awful.

    I think Annapolis is much better, but that's cause it's probably one of Tyler's top 3. IMO.

    Tyler has never disappointed me so far, I have all of his scores except for Six String Samurai. That score was mostly songs and ridiculous dialogue, not Tyler's fault since he was relatively new to the scoring scene then.
    That Annapolis on steroids claim I made was little overblown but I was so happy from listening to the Rambo score.

    biggrin

    Just saw Rambo and I absolutely loved it. It is the best film since First Blood and Brian's score was used quite effectively in the film final print. Also there were a couple of interesting blues songs written and performed by actor Jake La Botz who portrayed one of the mercenaries helping Rambo.

    I don't miss Jerry Goldsmith..I have close to forty of his scores to keep me company. It is like he never died I am pretty sure he is watching over Tyler and smiling.

    I am bit disappointed with the music for this latest Rambo installment. I don't like the relentless percussion going on and on... with some brass playing occassionly.

    I miss having new Goldsmith scores, but I completely agree that I don't miss Goldsmith per se as lives on in his music. It's not as though he was my friend and I used to see him every day, so I can't really say I 'miss' the man.

    Still, I miss Jerry Goldsmith. dizzy

    Goldsmith musical style is something I miss very much and I enjoy the fact that Tyler is keeping it alive through his music.
  7. Is he? I think he's a more ambitious version of MV, really. Beltrami is closer to Goldsmith, I would say.

    I'd certainly agree that Beltrami could fill Goldsmith's shoes in terms of style.
