He’s definitely not a bad reviewer, and his writing style is pretty sharp. The obvious problem is that he has a strong bias against Zimmer. Most of his recent Zimmer reviews are less spent talking about themes and more so the “issues” with his current style.'At World's End' is possibly one of his greatest 'missteps' for sure, but he is a mostly reasonable guy when reviewing, and simply has a taste that doesn't accomodate a lot of the more modern sounding scores, which I think is ok, since we all have our preferences. His 'Solo' review is a must read for any fan of the score though. :DIf you want to understand why he's persona non grata, just go and check out his review of Hans Zimmer's masterpiece At World's End, it sums up pretty nicely the guy's mental issues :p<br><br>But his other reviews are mostly OK and that Solo one is indeed very good, worth a read.Who is he and why is he a persona non grata? ô_OHow dare you mention his name ??<br><br>I should erase that post... :P
What site are his reviews on again? Not really sure where to look.As long as Steve knows to keep this score mostly melodic with little to no sound design, I'll probably be happy with it.I assume that's the official cover....<br><br>I dig it. Very Die Hard-y : )I know Clemmensen is kind of persona non grata around here (not without good reason), but he put up his review of Solo a few days ago and it's one of the best he's ever written, a fantastic in-depth analysis (and appropriately positive). Worth spending an hour or two reading and listening to help unpack this score's many complexities.Is it just me or does the “Catwoman” riff (not the main theme) in “Bar Shootout” and “Nothing Out There” sound very much like the main Scarface theme?<br><br>I’ve also noticed that Hans sometimes will write a main tune and a series of riffs for a character, but will mainly incorporate the smaller motifs in the film (Angelica’s music from OST, Megamind’s main tune, Catwoman, etc.) Definitely not a problem though, I like the variety.<br><br>Look at the evolution of Batman’s theme from Begins, where he had the 2-note motif and the actual theme, to here where it’s just the 2 notes and the chord theme. I wonder if that was Chris Nolan’s decision.
John Powell answered in Facebook there is still 45 minutes of music outside from the CD.Yep, he knows how to do BIG and small moments. He's so versatile. I'm praying rian johnson uses him for his new trilogyThank you! Glad you enjoyed it.If there is one who can replace John Williams on Star Wars than is it John Powell!!<br><br>Great Job!!It sounds great ! I think I will listen to the CD after the hamburg concert, to keep the surprise, because they will play some cues there ! <br><br>Are some french JP fans going to Hamburg next week ? It would be great to have a beer and talk about film music !
Dear Mr. Zimmer (or those interested), <br><br>  Over the years I have always enjoyed some of the higher-intensity compositions you have produced and made a point of putting my money where my mouth is and actually buying the soundtracks - money well spent. I've used specific songs of your's to get through moments of fatigue at work and also to prepare (silly as it may sound) for sporting events, even working out or running. I found them better than any rock or even electronic-type energetic music, until such a point, naturally, that I'd listened to them too many times and the magic wore off. Some of your songs rise to a crescendo that sometimes are powerful but perhaps lost on those who are unfamiliar with the corresponding movie scene ("Flight" from Man of Steel, it rises gradually but the concept you capture is magnificent, "Time" from Inception as well comes to mind). Some are obviously and undeniably potent like "A Dog Chasing Cars" or, going way back to when I learned of your work, "The Battle" from Gladiator which reminded me of "Mars, the Bringer of War", -- or even the latest "Sea Wall".<br><br>  Admittedly this is odd but I can't help but wonder if despite all the solicitations you must receive it seemed to me I might as well send the following two-fold feedback: in the same way I was pleased to learn that Daft Punk was handling the soundtrack for the modern remake of TRON (and what a fine job they did) I was also heartened to find that you were handling the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. It seemed a good sign to me at the time and I knew I would buy a ticket at that point. That was a movie (BR2049) I was worried they would BOTCH much in the same way they completely did whatever it was they did with remake of Total Recall (in which they completely stripped it of its cerebral essence and made it a very long chase-scene). <br><br>  All of this is to express some appreciation and also plug an obscure pianist from Montreal who has been on the CBC and all that, who, when I spoke to him after a show and compared some of his energetic imaginative work (Nostos comes to mind, and damn he hit 99% of those complex piano notes) to your's he admitted it was a dream of his to work with you under any capacity. Of course I suspect nothing will come of this but either way I think it harmless to tip my hat your way as a long-time fan who has utilized your music for motivation many, many, many times and also note that on my esoteric playlists five or six came from you and one or two came from him (Nostos, Il, Hypoctite)<br><br> Lastly, it should be noted for the historians that one time Jean-Michel Blais saved us Canadians (if you do the collective math based on viewership) a great deal of time and intellectual agony. Chevy was running commercials during the NHL playoffs (last year, not the the latest Washington Capitals win) in which an irritating scenario of "real people" were supposed to judge cars/trucks that popped out from behind sliding doors or lifted from basements (aircraft-carrier-style), and the poor fools/actors/allegedly "real people" had to say something nice about it all. It was such garbage. How splendid, how refreshing, then, that they ran a good commercial with someone just winding corners and enjoying driving the damn car to the music, which I recognized as JMB's "Hypocrite". He saved the society a good 10k hours of perniciousness.<br><br>Whew! That's all from me. Love the music, keep it up. Please give JMB a shot I think you'll find his attitude/ethic/skills refreshing. Regardless of that at least it was worthwhile of me to express my appreciation for ten years of masterful original music on your part anyway.Separate question:<br><br>Is Toby Chu part of RCP? I think he had some connections at least right?Why wouldn't Hans go all-out for something that's going to be viewed on this scale? I mean, how hard is it to compose 45 seconds of compelling, original music when you've worked on innumerable 2+ hour films?Woah, Hans actually did good work on this; it's admittedly a bit anonymous-sounding, but the combination of percussion, strings, and choir works in a way that's reminiscent of Angels & Demons (oh, those were the days...).John just precised this point, i was just too impatient ;)

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.
