I reckon Yor can eat a lot of sausages. How many sausages can you eat Yor?


I'm surprised Yor didn't answer this question. I think if Yor ate 36 large sausages Yor still would not be full.

I think Zimmer is very likely to incorporate or reference Horner's main theme in the score. I can't remember any sequel Zimmer did (whether he or someone else scored the predecessor) where he didn't do that. He used Schfrin's theme in MI2 and Elfman's theme in The Simpsons Movie.

Well, the latter wasn't a sequel, but it was a follow-up to the series and using the theme was expected.

YOR likes sausages.

Sausages good!

Zimmer actually makes me less interested in seeing new films. Something I never would have thought possible. His influence on genre films is downright oppressive. Hire. Someone. Else.

Maybe, have a taste of your own medicine? Illiterate guy who can only throw around silly meme pictures?



Go on, facehugger, have another go at spelling "pretentious". Here's a clue: the letter c doesn't appear anywhere in it. smile


Lol picking spelling mistake from a non-native English speaker. Do you illiterate people know Japanese?

In that case, I admire your language skills. It's just your attitude and general character as disclosed on these pages that come across poorly. Have you actually run out of Japanese people to argue with?

Yay more Pavlovian frequency control tones in place of expression. Waste.

Well I find many other forum members' (that Hercules F bomb guy, the MikeP silly meme pic guy) attitude and manner equally despicable.

So why don't we just stop lecturing each other about manners and actually focus on the topic of this post, i.e. Spider Zimmer Man?

While watching The Amazing Spider-man I always thought the score was far too melodic, and the main theme was far to flexible and well rounded.

Horner even used trumpets for Christ sake!

I'm glad this oversight will be corrected for the sequel.

except that Zimmer created the sound


Yeah because Zimmer actually composed Speed, The Rock and Pirates.


Yes he composed Pirates,also Black Rain, Bird on a Wire,Backdraft, Drop Zone and... Crimson Tide. The Rock co-composed(his theme though)


I wouldn't equal Black Rain (isn't it mainly Shirley Walker?), Bird on a Wire, Backdraft and Drop Zone with The Rock, Crimson Tide, Speed,Gladiator and Pirates, in terms of being definitive of the so-called "Zimmer sound".

Zimmer did compose the theme for The Rock, but it is almost indistinguishable from the original theme Nick Glennie-Smith composed for The Rock: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIsslv8_7LM
so my understanding is Zimmer took inpiration from Glennie-Smith.

Gladiator's most famous track is "Now we're free", and it's by Klaus Badelt.

Pirates' most famous track is "He is a pirate" and it's also by Badelt.

Speed, nuff said.

Crimson Tide is orchestrated by Glennie-Smith. Considering Zimmer's limited capability with an orchestra, I'd say it's 50% a Glennie-Smith score.

And I'd also add The Lion King, the most famous part (the African music) is by Lebo M.

I think you're introducing a straw man, and I don't intend to go down that route. Enjoy the discussion.

I'm not introducing anything. You are the one that implied that non-English speakers should engage only with other non-English speakers. And ridiculing their spelling errors to boot. Bad form, if I may say so.

I'm not trying to get into a fracas with you. I'm merely pointing out that any non-native English speakers can contribute here and calling them out on their spelling (or grammar & syntax, for that matter) is arrogant and intolerant.

Or do I misunderstand you?

What happened between Hamzimmer and Kalus Badelt?

Apparently some royalty legal dispute over Pirates/Gladiator or something. Not a peaceful breakup between the two. Badelt has been trying to get his credits back since (and appears to be blacklisted from Hollywood).
