The reprise of "Batman on Fire" from Begins (1:59-2:30 in the Transfiguration suite) is good stuff! I wonder why Hans decided to reuse that particular idea.When are we going to see you in Chicago?Indeed, this score reminds me — in a good way — of The Rock.Track 11, Onwards, here is my most favorite cue from the CoH franchise. It has that old school "power anthem" thing going on about it with full force. I truly wish this style is brought back to life again soon.Are there any more tour dates planned?
Lord of the Rings - Shore<br>Battlestar Galactica - McCreary<br><br>Both are up there as my two favorite collection of works. GOT doesn't even compare to BSG. <br><br>For solo albums, my candidates are:<br><br>Titanic<br>The Lion King<br>Interstellar<br>Memoirs of a Geisha<br>Jurassic Park<br><br><br> <br><br>@superultramega<br>Honestly I feel like most of the issues with AUJ (and the other two hobbit films) were stemming from Peter Jackson editing the hell out of the music after the fact. It could be why they ended up dumping some themes in the following films.<br><br>Still, I don’t understand some of the criticism that the Hobbit trilogy scores received. DoS has some of the best action material imo, and the interpolations of Smaug’s theme(s) throughout the films are personally some of my favorite music from any LoTR project.<br><br>And this might be controversial, but I would put PoTC (the first three at least) on the level of Lord of the Rings in terms of the sheer amount of themes and development they receive. Maybe not quite as complex but they shouldn’t be overlooked.The Lion King and The Last Samurai are good choices, but I'm not as much of a fan as Zimmer's aesthetic or thematic work nearly as much as Howard Shore, or even Jablonskly at times. Game of Thrones I still can't comment on as I've never watched the show, or payed attention to Djawadi in general.<br><br>I would say Shore's heart wasn't in Desolation and Five Armies, but to say that about Unexpected Journey doesn't really feel right to me. Even themes like Gondor Restored and Nazgul's uses have some logic to them. <br><br>Gondor Restored was also used when the Ring is destroyed, meaning it also has a secondary meaning of victory against evil, (yes I know it affected Gondor too, but Gondor it isn't as direct). Which also applies in The Hobbit, as Bilbo saving Thorin was not only important for their relationship but also the future of Middle Earth as Thorin is vital to the battle against the orcs in Five Armies. <br><br>The Nazgul theme also makes sense as its first appearance is in Fellowship's opening, playing over Sauron's army of orcs, then Sauron himself. So it's linked both to Sauron himself and his servants, which includes Azog. Plus the version that plays in the film is the exact same variant (and lyrics) that plays in the Fellowship prologue. It serves almost as a precursor to the Nazgul. Plus I don't see why themes can't have several meanings anyway.  <br><br>Plus I love most of the new themes of AUJ (before they were abandoned in later films).Not really a fair comparison, Hybrid, since videogames as a medium are much younger than films, and their scores weren't using real orchestras right until... mid 90's, would be my guess (feel free to correct me, guys).<br><br>The all time best film score for me would be a battle between The Last Samurai and Lion King. If "movie" includes TV shows, then it's Game of Thrones without a doubt, but I'm not gonna have this argument again ;)<br><br>Btw. I wouldn't mention Hobbit in the same sentence with LotR, even music-wise. A couple of great cues cannot hide the fact that Shore's heart wasn't in it.IS * lion king
Best film score of all time in lion king. Without any doubt. ;-)Can I just add, the album presentation for MW2 is really lame? It's a big, dare I say "epic" score in the 1990s Media Ventures mold. I think it's really solid. There are lots of different ideas from the first mission to the last, and a lot of them are written in the power anthem style that Hans ans co. don't really use much these days. Even Opening Titles is a throwback for Hans himself. <br><br>Unfortunately, almost none of the music as heard through the game is here. Instead, we got a bunch of shortened theme suites. :P<br><br>But the Gulag mission, the oil rig stuff, The Enemy of My Enemy, and lots of other missions all have pretty engaging and powerful music. I wish the RCP guys would do scores like this one more.Lord of the Rings (and even The Hobbit), are the only film scores that I'm buying an entire book for, just to fully understand the themes and motifs.Every time I revisit this score the first cue I automatically go back to is “This Isn’t Right”. Something about RGW’s string writing always stuck with me, even if he isn’t the most memorable when it comes to themes.<br><br>As for this score itself, I feel like it might have become a classic had it not been paired with such a shitty film. It’s funny, the score sounds less like Hans’ style to me and more like James Horner’s. Granted he only wrote one cue apparently...But the best film score of all time is Lord of the Rings... :>
Guys... Video Game music didn't start in 2008... lol<br><br><br>Your little game is actually impossible... It's pretty much like trying find "what is the best film score of all time"...I agree with Araujo and Knorr wholeheartedly. Cannot say the same for Soule; I always found his music lackluster and unfocused, sans the main theme of course. I'd like to mention my first runner-up, which is Destiny: Rise of Iron alongside Destiny 2. I was never a huge fan of the first two scores (original game + the first expansion), but the moment a guy named Rotem Moav got on Salvatori's team, the music became incredible (even though I have no evidence that those two events are related). Nevertheless, since it's stylistically so different from old-school and symphonic LAIR, I'd probably name it my No.1 alongside it.<br><br>If you guys are looking for recommendations, be sure to check these out:<br>The Witcher 3 (Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikolai Stroinski, and a band called Percival), LotRO: Riders of Rohan (Chance Thomas), Assassin's Creed IV (Brian Tyler), Alone In The Dark (Olivier Deriviére), Eagle Flight (Inon Zur), Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Noriyasu Agematsu), Ni No Kuni I/II (Joe Hisaishi), and of course Medal of Honor and Gears of War IV by Ramin ;)Gonna have to chip in for Skyrim as well, although I'm biased because I used to put hundreds of hours into that game :p<br><br>Oscar Araujo's music for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games is pretty good, as well as Geoff Knorr and his team's work on the last few Civ games.Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, Returns and Tropical Freeze.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is by far on top for me. It feels like the ultimate culmination of Jeremy Soule's work on the the series along with symphony-level quality for the town and exploration music.

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.
