I really hope this gets a proper CD release. WB seems to at least release big event movies on CD still...for now.

So they just used Graeme Revell's score for the Dune miniseries on the new movie?

Lazy.

Sounds promising! I like what I hear so far in those two cues.

Some interesting musical ideas, but for me, nothing will beat Toto's Dune score.

I’m surprised there aren’t more comments about the tracks. They sound interesting. I’m looking forward to this. October is the release date?

Has enough cowbell, but needs more Toto.

I love Wonder Woman 84 but this? Geezus, just say no. Start over Zimmy boy.

I had high hopes for this based on Blade Runner being, to my ears, a proper serious science fiction score. But this sounds like a cringe-worthy clone of Gladiator, sigh...

Yuck!

Are they really expecting to impress anyone with this garbage or they intentionally picked shittiest tracks from the entire score?

I know. I'm not interested in the film, but if I was interested in the film I would've lost interest after hearing this noise.

You can count on someone taking Toto's score and tracking it to Villeneuve's movie.

The Toto score with all its unfortunate flaws and tape wobble still sounds better. More ethereal.

I will definately be tracking it once the Bluray comes out.

Whatever the perception one may have about Toto's score, David Lynch said he wanted Shostakovich and, by God, Paich delivered!
Love it.

This is amazing. There is even organ used in it.

I've given each of the Zimmer tracks a couple of listens, and my opinion is not a positive one.
Do not read further if you are a Zimmer apologist.

I went into it hoping that he would have tried something different, but it's more of the same-old, same-old.
I don't know how or why, but he's way past the point of musical innovation and long into musical self-parody.
I think a lot of his early work had something to say, but those days are a distant memory.
"Paul's Theme", specifically, would not sound out of place in a South Park movie--where it's at least MEANT to be a parody.
It's merely unappealing for the first 4:48, and when the faux-Arabic wailing starts it becomes almost a musical equivalent of blackface.
(There is NO passage in the book that suggests the culture of Arrakis is rooted or even comparable to past-or-present-day Arabic culture.)
"Ripples In The Sand" is less egregious by virtue of it being forgettable.

Where does the responsibility lay for such a misfire?
Zimmer, for having such a limited musical palette?
His "committee", so that no particular one of them can be singled out for blame?
Villeneuve, for hiring Zimmer in the first place, knowing full well what the end result would be?
I tend to feel it's the last option.
Maybe Villeneuve is not quite the innovative auteur we wish he was.

I'm still going to see the film, not just because I adore the book but also because it looks like the visuals might be occasionally impressive.
But if I enjoy it, it will be despite the score--not because of the score.
Maybe it's our fault for expecting too much.

Yes, I was a tough critic on these tracks.
But I'm sick of this hackneyed, lowest-common-denominator stuff.

Octoberman, your post is very revealing.

More importantly who really ghost wrote Wonder Woman 84?

Very likely, but I knew going in that it was going to be an unpopular opinion.

There was no bias in your critique. Your analysis was right on.
