    JOHN POWELL- Hancock

    Quick, skip, click, shift, jump to the last 2 cues, the beautiful Death And Transfiguration and The moon and the superhero and throw the rest in the recycle bin wink


    While those two cues are indeed stunning it's a shame to see people skip pass the rest of the album to get to those cues. IMHO, Hancock was one of the finest efforts of 2008!

    Nah, just listen to it anyway, it's great fun!

    The problem is, because I have high expectation of the film itself (since it was called American Dog!), I want to avoid spoilers. But I've heard a couple of tracks at SST, and they are, really, *hamster voice* awesome.

    Maybe I'll try official release... Is it in chronological order? If not, it won't spoil so much.

    It is in chronological order, yes. The film is no masterpiece, but you'll likely fall in love with the characters as I did, helped along by Powell's score.

    Trust me, the promo is more than twice as good as the official album simply because it's more than twice the length of the official album. Such a fun score with some 'classic' Powell action cues.

    AVOID the official release at all costs. It's got some of the sloppiest editing I've ever heard.

    Well, for one I think it worked brilliantly in the picture... which is where I first heard the score. Secondly, I absolutely love the development of the main theme from the urban, rough around the edges sound to a more traditional heroic theme at the end of the picture. It fits the drama like a glove and is a great example of a score that continues to build upon itself until the final two cues where everything inevitably comes together. I think it's a fine, fine modern action adventure score that incorporates the traditional symphonic approach with a perfect blend of contemporary elements. There is no one out there that does it better than Powell. I feel like a lot of time and care was put into the creation of the score to find the right voice musically for the character of Hancock. Powell did just that and created a fantastic, original, coherent, memorable work!

    The score for Hancock definitely works better in the movie than on CD. Luckily, the CD saves the massive action cues which are horribly chopped up in the film, so you really need to hear the score in both places!

    Btw, for anyone that's interested with Bolt, the Oscar promo is missing 3 short (and totally un-noteworthy) cues, "Moving Out" has a slightly longer intro in the film, and "Meet The Director" has a slightly longer ending. Aside from that, it's everything.

    NP : LA GUERRE DU FEU ( aka QUEST FOR FIRE ) - Philippe Sarde



    By the gods but that first track, Creation of Fire, with the combined forces of the LSO and full choir still sends shivers up and down my spine!

    Fabulous score full of colourful orchestration, one of those scores that reveals something new on each successive play.

    Hans Zimmer - The Lion King

    Great score, if it only was orchestrated better it'd be one of the best ever. Still it's one of the best scores of 1990s.

    Just listening to track 11 Quest For Fire ( Love Theme ) and it really struck me that the string writing in this is very John Williams like with a touch of Aram Khakaturian thrown in!? Very beautiful, complex and powerful.

    When I saw it at the cinema I thought it was ok...not great, but ok. Then last week I rented it on Blu-ray and both my parents asked if they could watch it too. I said "sure, but I don't think it's going to be your copy of tea". They freakin' loved it (even more than I did I think!)
