As long as they were going to hack the score....

Why didn't they go to one of the Media Ventures lackeys to raid the GLADIATOR library. As long as we're going to hear a half-assed product (no offense to Horner), why not regurgitate the best music from GLADIATOR and others? The film certainly leaned toward spectacle and brawn. I think it would have been nice to have something with a little more impact.

When the end of TROY rolled around, I not only noticed how similar it was to GLADIATOR, but how appropriate NOW WE ARE FREE would have been. After a (good) 3 hour movie, the ending has to have some real emotional resonance.
