Yes the Gods and Generals had a bigger ochestra and was larger in scale, but the score to Gettysburg had a distinct sound to it. Gettysburg had emotional motifs in its score while it seems that Gods and Generals was all over the place. There were times while listening to the score and watching the movie when I had to roll my eyes at hearing a certain motif. It was like going throught he motions of war cliches. I was expecting a Gettysburg like score and instead got a notoriously boring score, much like the movie. Gettysburg had a better score and script and the two went together nicely. I don't understand what went wrong and why Gods and Generals gets five stars and Gettysburg only three. It should be the other way around.
