This Score, and The Ten Commandments!   Tuesday, May 29, 2001 (8:46 p.m.) 

This score has a line of music that keeps repeating it's self throughout the whole movie.Not that thats a bad thing, but, it is stolen directly from "The Then Commandments" with Charlton Heston. For any of you who already have the cd, it can be heard in, (just one of the examples) "Just An Oasis", from 21sec, to 26,.I know thats not a long time, but i have alot of respect for the man who wrote that movie score, and for any of you who have heard it, it is a great score. I like this score, alot! But, I dont like the way Silvestri stole that great part.

How do you know he stole it?

Did you ask Alan Silvestri?

Why couldn't he have subconciously pick up on something he had heard?

"Stole" is too harsh a word when you don't know the situation under which the score was written. I agree wholeheartedly that The Ten Commandments is a great score (and it needs a decent re-issue), and maybe Silvestri has heard it (yet to be determined), and if he has then maybe he was not knowingly using it, or maybe it was used as an homage, or maybe it was a printing error from the copyist who was drinking too much the night before and when Mr. Silvestri heard the music he thought that it was better than what he wrote -- so he had that copyist fired so he could keep it secret... And maybe I'm that copyist...
But I wouldn't know because I'm drunk...
You just don't know.

>it's only about 5 seconds, and really, there are many scores that have moments that sound like one another. It's really no big deal. But you do have a good ear for the musical cues. I myself like Bernstein's score for the Ten Commandments.
