I've always had this question: What happened between Hans Zimmer and Ridley Scott? Why aren't they work together anymore ?
Yeah, i've been asking myself the same question. They worked tohether for years, why doesn't Zimmer score Ridley's movies anymore.
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...
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.
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.
Look above at the tracklist with 53 tracks. It's a good version.
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...
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. In this version of Bootleg, there are ALL tracks of the original and "more music" soundtrack and plus some alternate and unused cues - and every song doesn't have any dialogs (-> i looove "Homecoming").
