Comments about the soundtrack for Pirates of the Caribbean (Klaus Badelt and co.)
Theme Ripped STRAIGHT Off the "Gladiator" Score

Theme Ripped STRAIGHT Off the "Gladiator" Score   Tuesday, March 15, 2005 (7:37 p.m.) 

I love Pirates of the Carribean (the movie). I have to admit, I am not entirely adverse to the soundtrack, either.

But (and I know this is quite late in the game) I heard the "Gladiator" soundtrack for the first time today and I was surprised and annoyed to hear a great theme from the track "The Battle" (it begins at around the six minutes and ends at the six minutes, fifteen seconds mark) that sounds exactly the same as the main theme from "Pirates of the Carribean."

Which of course, only means that in a feat of desperation- or realizing it was just a pretty damn good theme that they didn't have a chance to sufficiently expand upon in "Gladiator"- Badelt and Zimmer ripped the theme from "Battle" for "Pirates of the Carribean.

I expected more from them (or at least more from Hans).

All right, done with my rant.

I think I heard a little "Muppet Treasure Island" bit in there. I personally am surprised that when presented with a Muppet pirate movie (which, although great, is really a comedy), Hans can write a pirate score. However, when presented with a serious pirate movie, Hans dumps the score on somebody else and a horrific job is done.

Both of these themes are direct rip offs of Beethoven's Egmont overture, plain and simple. Like there's any original talent left, Ha!
