I don't plan on seeing the movie, Verbinski and Depp have proven to be a deadly combination for me .The first Pirates movie was fun, but they became bigger and more lavish, sucking out the fun of the first and just replacing it with spectacle.

But the Lone Ranger score is a damn entertaining CD. Some very nice music here. I was actually unsure of how the William Tell Overture would be worked into the score...and if it even should have been, aside from a nod here or there . The huge Finale cue though, does a great job of interpolating the famous overture with actual action scoring. It isn't just 10 minutes of the overture again and again, but a very nice riff on the theme, weaving it in and out very energetically - a fine way to climax the album.

This is a good score, and a solid CD.

YOR just listened to this score.

It is not half as bad as "Man of Steel", but still...

Why everything with Zimmer has to be SO DAMM LOUD?

And the chorus singing "A-E-I-O-U" again... really??

But kudos to Zimmer for making Rossini's "William Tell Overture" almost unbereable to hear! That was really impressive!

Did you see the fourth one? I approached it very reluctantly because of my strong dislike for the second and third films, but to my surprise I rather enjoyed it. I had a few complaints here and there, but overall I felt it abandoned the excess of the previous two and went back to the smaller scale and less-convoluted style of the first movie.

And that's all just a lot of blah-blah.

LMAO! State an opinion respectfully, get insulted in reply. The way of the Internet. Let me guess. You were the whiny little kid on the school playground who was always going "Nuh-uh, nuh-uh! I'm right and you're wrong!"

Have a sucky life bitching and moaning online. smile

Great to hear that the film is bound to be a flop

Positive attitude indeed.

Just imagine how much you are going to delight us in next days spitting venom on this soundtrack
You should change your name to HOR, YOR's pupil.

To make it better, he mentioned Puccini! Talk about a non sequitur while attempting to be condescending and elitist.

She put YOR on her ignore list, but nevertheless continue to quote YOR on her posts.

As YOR said before: ignore list is for cowards.

Any doubts about it?

Is there any real reason Yor hasn't been banned? He does nothing but troll. Constantly.

I would imagine that it has something to do with how he doesn't attack anyone here unless they attack him first (I'll be happy to retract this if anyone can show otherwise).

OR...

Because he's more fun than 90% of the posters here.

(Of course, that's just my theory/opinion.)

My hope is that someday a film music discussion board will come along which promotes healthy conversation amongst us score geeks, and ignites our passion to discuss the music within these soundtracks -- rather than the packaging, pressed quantity, or negative sentiment towards hard-working composers.

Lovin' it

I'm not a Zimmer hater. I think he's done some good work. But that seems to be in the past. Show me a hard working composer that also still displays his gifts (rather than punch up some drum patterns set to droning synth tones) and doesn't sit on past glories that have become tired cliches, and I'll be right in there singing his praises too.

Just got back from seeing The Lone Ranger. Had a blast. I'm not a huge Pirates of the Caribbean fan, but this was more up my street. A good balance of action and laughs with some pretty dark stuff for a Disney film, but not too dark. Reminded me of the kind of the wild ride Temple of Doom achieved - a very similar vibe. After the doom and gloom in Man of Steel (which I didn't enjoy) Lone Ranger had the kind of fun, popcorn abandon that I needed this summer.

The audience was enjoying the hell out of it - especially during the non-stop finale. Zimmer's use of the Overture was received with cheers. He didn't over-use it, which was nice. They chose just the right moments to whip it out. People were diggin' it.

I also liked the heroic theme first associated with the older brother and then used for the Ranger. There were also some little nods to Morricone here and there. Good stuff! Grabbing the itunes version now. Hopefully the Intrada version is expanded.

I find it amusing that some of the harshest Zimmer critics seem to be among the first to have listened to this score and/or Man of Steel.

Just my thoughts. They are secret Zimmer-fans. Miserable ones, at that.

Geez, the guy has even started copying his own posts from other threads now. As if one version wasn't enough.

I ask myself the same question. Where is Sones when we need him?

Come on!

It is pretty funny to listen to the new trash "composed" by Hamzimmer and bash it in public.

Just the hysterical reaction of the zimmerities compensate any trouble caused to your ears by Zimmer's wall of noises...

Not really. I just love film and film music enough to keep hoping the guy will get it right - as he did in 'Lone Ranger' (albeit with considerable help from Morricone's influence and The William Tell Overture). I also really like about 1 in 10 of his scores so I keep hoping this next one with be 'the one'.

The finale has been playing non-stop in my truck. Getting lots of head-turns from passers-by.

I am not a Zimmer hater by any means. As someone mentioned though, most of his great scores are from years past. The last few years he has been the go-to guy for background music as scores, and they rightly deserve disdain.

Which is why I started that other thread with Zimmer actually wrote a score! This is the closest he has come to some of his original work from long ago, and he deserves credit for that.

Credit where credit is due. When Zimmer does good, I'm more than willing to cheer. When Zimmer does bad, I'm more than willing to boo. It's not the man, it's the music!
