Is it me or does the main theme sound a lot like Hannibal? No doubt Zanelli’s stamp on the score...Hybrid, did Zimmer composed any of the music in the second trailer? <br><br>Interesting that nobody's mentioned the sessions leak. Pretty sure I posted a cue list but it must have been deleted.@mephariel<br>None of the styles work for me really. Most of the score comes across as a pastiche of ideas from other Zimmer scores where they were better developed (Gladiator, The Rock, Crimson Tide, etc.) and Even the action is kind of hit or miss. I just don’t find it to be an interesting score honestly.@kiki: delete inferno for me aswell...
...and a very good solo Balfe cue, at that. That theme and Hans' Moriarty theme are the most engaging ideas of these movies, to me. <br><br>Hey, while I'm here, any word on Hans doing the third movie?i would delete Dunkirk immediately from that library. That's the WORST score ever written from any composer out there. This isn't even a score or film music. Just pure sound effects.No, "Psychological Recovery" is scored to picture, a bunch of cues put together from the climax of the film. IIRC the first three minutes or so are a solo Balfe cue actually.Nope, not a suite, a mix of about 4/5 cues.M:I2 is definitely a polarizing score. But I have to say, this is the first time I heard the criticism stylistically bland refer to this score. Because for most people who dislike the score, they think the score is too stylish.
love this score. hasn't grown on me. was listening to it on my commute today. do you guys know if the track "psychological recovery" is the "suite" that came first. and then other cues developed from it? thanksEven then, I feel like its still irrelevant to post the titles for it does us no good and it will be posted here eventually. But whatever I guessJust realized I’ve been calling the movie “Windows” instead of “Widows”. <br>Ugh it’s been a long day -_-Just took a look at the trailer and am really impressed with how the film looks, not what I was expecting at all. I honestly don’t know what approach Zimmer will take either, although if I had to guess probably more sound design-ish.<br><br>And outside of “Injection” and “Bare Island” I find MI2 to be bland and all over the place stylistically. Just my opinion though, I know a lot of people love that score ;-)mpolonest123, have you seen the trailer for Widows? Zimmer created the music for that trailer and I assume it came from the movie. If that is the case, it will sound nothing like TTRL.
M:I2 is a blast to listen to. I just have a hard time imagine it to be a MI score. But it is one of the most fun scores from Zimmer.And as far Zimmer scores that I don’t like for the most part, there is a small handful (Madagascar, MI2, etc.)That’s completely fair, and I honestly couldn’t defend this score and be genuine about it. I think it does help that I love this movie (despite being hard to watch) and have come to associate the music with it so much. Still, I can’t lie that I find portions of it to be incredibly effective, even when the music does become solely ambient. In terms of listenability/originality the best cue is, ironically, the 24-second “Washington” cue.<br><br>I would kill to know what Zimmer personally thinks of this score. I’m sure he had a great working relationship with Steve, hence him working on “Windows”, but I’m sure the temptrack must have been murder on his creativity...This is my least favorite Zimmer score, actually. Or else the one that I feel has the least going for it; I guess it doesn't make me mad like On Stranger Tides, but at the same time it lacks anything even remotely compelling. "Boat Trip to New Orleans" is the only halfway interesting cue and even then I don't really like to listen to it much. The experimental parts aren't interesting experiments (ooh...clapping...wow), and the Journey to the Line stuff is just tired and bland (on top of being super derivative). I get that it works in the movie or whatever but if I had a gun to my head with orders to delete one Hans score from my library and never listen to it again, I'm pretty sure this would be the one I'd go for.Even 5 years later, I’m still not sure how I feel about this score. <br><br>On one hand, the music complements the film extremely well. “Boat Trip to New Orleans” and “Soap” are both incredible in context, and even some of the more ambient cues are pretty effective. Alongside Interstellar probably Hans’ most minimilastic score, something which actually suits him well.<br><br>On the other hand, the Time/Journey to the Line temp is extremely blatant, and it definitely doesn’t help that 60% of the music used in film is basically a variation on that one idea (and some cues are purely sound effects). I still admire the score though, regardless of the familiarity issues.<br><br>With Windows coming out I’m very curious to see what approach will be. Personally, I like seeing Zimmer tackle a project with minimalism. Hopefully McQueen (who is a very talented director) doesn’t box Hans in with another TTRL temp... or any temp for that matter.

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?


Oscarilbo2018-03-14 16:43:51
did they really had a fallout ?
I mean.. Hans always talks wonders about R Scott and vice versa. Hans even worked on Blade Runner 2049 which R Scott produced.

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.
