Ian - do you honestly think Genius or Churchill are no good !!!!!this site  is so weird.when people slag of Balfe it’s okay but we dare say he is actually good then people get mad about it .Bit pathetic.The guy has been nominated twice for an Emmy so can’t be that bad!Haters give it a rest and get a life please and let us fans just enjoy the musicHybrid, what did Danny think of what Hans was doing? Since he tries to claim that no Batman composer after him wrote a "theme"...Okay, so I'm not a fan of Balfe's; I think it's objectively the case that much of his music is very, very similar to work he's already done (seriously, how many times has he made obviously variations of Journey to the Line / Time?). However, his best work is both highly creative and emotionally compelling IMO, not sure how one could expect more than that. Ironclad is actually a good example of thisActually Hybrid my comment is based on their separate  interviews years apart. Zimmer's arguably dismissive comment years ago and Elfman's arguably stern remark about his theme being the only Batman theme, of recent note. <br><br>If they are both good friends who go to each other's barbecues on Sundays and drink beer together, more power to them. If they have a stellar working relationship, well, I obviously am not privy to that, but good on them. However based on what I've heard my impressions don't lean towards the latter.<br><br>If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. <br>  <br><br><br>"Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty."<br><br>Blackwood might want to have a word with you.
Too many songs! But at least there is 15 tracks of score.<br><br>BTW, I don't think Djawadi is able just to do themes. His score in GoT Season 7 shows that he is able to do action tracks very well. Also, in GoT Season 6, he shows that he is able to have many themes and develop them in many different ways.Meta your comment is based on smoke...<br><br><br>Do you have any idea of what Hans & Elfman's relation is ? How many scores Danny mixed at Remote Control ? That when Hans was writing Batman Begins, Danny was in the next room and Hans invited him to check what he was doing ? How many people from RCP Elfman recruited to help him ?lol it's too funny the guy even spent the time of typing all this...<br><br>Some people apparently have very boring lives on this planet !These comments by “Balfe” are comical.god knows where such venom comes from . Maybe an ex employee probably.he was correct on one point .He is indeed a trailer composer.He just did the mission impossible trailer!!!LOL. I guess this "Balfe" guy is one of those trolls from Stop RCP group.
Many benevolent saviours explaining the error of our music tastes have surfaced recently, haven't they?Eh, Mr. Ellipsis, I have to take issue with your appeal to popularity. Justin Bieber sells millions of records. That doesn't make his music good. Last year's piece of crap pointless Beauty and the Beast remake made a frankly terrifying amount of money at the box office. Doesn't stop it being a piece of crap.Guys, I know a lot of you probably think I'm an overly critical snob, but next time you do, just remember this guy and realize how much worse I could be. :pBalfe is not a composer, but still he gets to compose dozens of films and shows every single year, wow. He must be doing something good if he is on of the most busiest composers out there, don´t you think? Or you want to tell me that every producer, director or whoever hires him is deaf? Do you know how many films had to be re-scored by Balfe in the past few years? <br><br>Why you feed the troll?<br><br>
Wrong.<br><br>1. Wallfish is a very fine composer, period. Hans is a synth guy.<br><br>2. If Hans wasn't concern about BR he wouldn't do it.<br><br>3. Slavery was abolished 150 years ago. Hans choose to did it and agreed to involve Wallfish.<br><br>4. Maybe true, but it wasn't the thought of Villeneuve.here we go again:<br>Why Hans Zimmer Got The Job You Wanted (And You Didn’t)<br>https://behindtheaudio.com/2013/07/hans-zimmer/Hey you guys.<br><br>Balfe is a trailer composer not someone who composes real scores. He helps Hans out on his projects and occasionally may have a good idea. He is not an artist, simple as that.<br><br>Listen to the 'scores' he composed. At best, marginal efforts in sound libraries, they are just utterly shitty. The epitome of that is Terminator Genisys that even fans of the franchise found embarassing (and that is for a series based on synth scores). The samples are especially abhorrent<br><br>How he climbed to compose music for real films is a mystery. Go back to one of his earliest scores, the 2009 'score' for Ironclad, to find how utterly disappointing his work has been all the way throughout his career.<br><br>Balfe is a hack. He will never be considered a real composer. The industry knows Hans is pushing him and once that attention goes somewhere else, as it does with Hans frequently, Balfe will be immediately forgotten. Tell me - who actually wants a Lorne Balfe score for their film!!<br><br>You rapid fans supporting his work will be laughed at as being idiotic symbiotic followers. Get a fragging grip.<br><br>Balfe is not a composer. <br><br><br>This score is probably the largest failure of Zimmer's career - these would have been his objectives - think about it:<br><br>1.

I was re-watching Gladiator the other day, and it made me wish Zimmer and Ridley Scott hadn't had their falling-out. Zimmer's changed his style, sure, but certain directors seem to inspire different kinds of music from him, and I think Scott and he were a good combination.

Unrelated, did anyone else notice that the trumpet fanfare for Commodus played in the film when he enters the Colosseum is actually the little motif for Commodus from the score itself?

Boromir reply Replies: 3 || 2016-12-26 19:59:54
I've always had this question: What happened between Hans Zimmer and Ridley Scott? Why aren't they work together anymore ?


OskarC2016-12-26 20:15:14
Yeah, i've been asking myself the same question. They worked tohether for years, why doesn't Zimmer score Ridley's movies anymore.


Ds2016-12-26 22:19:08
The question is more like: why doesnt any composer work regularly with Ridley anymore? He used to have great scores in his movies, now they are all forgettable. Sadly The Martian seems like an exception in years of musical emptiness...


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-30 13:36:19
I thought Exodus was a decent score too. The HGW contributions are the highlight but I liked Iglesias and Jusid's material too, and it's surprisingly cohesive considering how many cooks there are. I do wish Harry had gotten that movie to himself, though.

mpolonest123 reply Replies: 1 || 2016-12-26 23:08:00
Ridley reached his peak with KOH music-wise. Both Prometheus and The Martian are decent, but neither comes remotely close to the quality of Gladiator or Hannibal.

What's really sad is the fact that most of his earlier films were so musically strong and diverse; what with Alien, Blade Runner, BHD, etc.
Not sure what happened to him as of late...

I actually own the 3 disk set mentioned below, I was very excited to hear it but instantly I knew it was going to be a let down. The track "German Battlefront" was definitely taken from the original OST. Now don't get me wrong, its a more enjoyable experience than the original soundtrack and "more music" release but there's still some music missing that I guess we'll never get a chance to own. I wouldn't spend too much time tracking it down. Whoever made this album must have spent hours cutting and splicing trying to put together a more complete score but all in all, it isn't what it claims to be. The track "Battle of Carriage (alternate version)" is quite interesting though. I'm pretty sure a legitimate complete score does not exist.

Why are Klaus Badelt and Lisa Gerrard listed as composers? HZ said Lisa didn't compose any of it, and KB if anything would be additional music.


al bundy2013-07-19 19:14:51
so you're saying if Klaus did additional music he wasn't a composer?


Anonymous2013-07-19 19:27:11
He was, but composer implies he did a considerable portion of the work. If I'm not mistaken he did a few cues, that's it.

Homecoming without dialogues has a pretty easy answer... It is ripped from a bonus of the second edition of the Gladiator DVD. There are some bonuses with isolated score. And I'm sure about those facts : I am the guy who made that rip.
But it seems somebody put my rip on a bootleg and claimed to have something new... that's so cute...

Hello, everybody!

I finally got the 3-CD-Edition, too and I'm very sorry to say: sidums is right!

Also this Bootleg release is just a fake. You can hear that since the first track.

The first track contains the original prologue music (no wonder, it could be ripped easily from the DVD) then following is "The wheat" (taken from the original release) and going into "The Battle". Here this glory theme with horns and humming choir is just played once, as on the album! In the film it's repeated immediately (you can hear the film version in the background of an interview track on the third disc). Than the film version of the battle is heard (with the humming male voice heard twice and the very short guitar solo - on the album, it is much longer) but then falling back in the album version.
On screen, when the battle is filmed in this 'trance-like' sequence just the strings a heard. On the album Lisa Gerrard is singing along that part - as on every dammed bootleg version! I never got my hands on a version only the strings a playing (and that's really sad).

After that, Commudus and Lucilla is just the Album version of the "prologue" fading out very abruptly.

"The Aftermath" is just the source music heard in the tent. It is also contained on most of the 2-CD-Sets, but here it is longer - because the guy who created this just repeated the second half.

And so it goes on and on. Just one thing on this boot which is very nice: "Homecoming" is completely without dialogue!

For all you are hunting this I say: Don't hunt for it any longer. I dread we have to wait twenty or more years when an official complete version gets released.

By the way, the 3cd soundtrack mentioned below is just a mix up of all the expanded cds released previously plus music taken from the menu screens of the new Gladiator Extended DVD. So once again, a real complete score still does not exist.

Though the CD release that medivh mentioned below sounds interesting, but i have never seen that one anywhere, and since he has taken the track vnames directly from the DVD Chapters titles i think its likely he was making it up.

Sorry to sound negative, but im only telling you guys the truth. A REAL GLADIATOR COMPLETE SCORE DOES NOT EXIST!..........Yet

Oh my God, I've finally got the 3CD Soundtrack. It's amazing and it's really sad, that this isn't released yet. Hans should release this as an ultimate collection as he does with PotC.
