Rip-off !!

The theme in "Gladiator" is such an obvious rip-off of the "1492" theme that I cannot believe that it's never ever referred to. I've loved Vangelis's score for "1492" ever since 1992 when the film was released and am incredibly annoyed that not only did Hans Zimmer and co. steal it for "Gladiator", but that the Gladiator score is now far more well-known and popular than Vangelis's original compositions for "1492". Fact: there is absolutely no justice in this world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only consolation is that Zimmer and Liza Gerrard failed to win the "Best Original Score" Oscar in 2001 that Vangelis deserved to win in 1992 even though he was not even nominated. Shame!!
