Wow i'm surprised at some of the comments about people complaining tyler ripped off zimmer of gladiator! I love this soundtrack and I collect movie sound tracks and totally disagree that it's taken from gladiator!! ...AGH WAIT A SEC!!! I'm listening to gladiator oh dear god it does sound very similar! Awe :o( Well I STILL ADORE BOTH soundtracks so egh he took the same style of gladiator they do it lots of times. It's not EXACTLY the same but does sound like he took hints from gladiator but it's still different that it be a hard case to fight over the issue maybe that's why zimmer didn't do anything like some comments said they were surprised he didn't. COD is still a beautiful soundtrack and has some lovely melodies!

Oh and by the way there is a direct theme from Gladiator track 3 that sounds very familiar to track 1 (about a minute into it) from the soundtrack to The Man in the Iron Mask so who's kidding who about composers "stealing" music from one another.

Let settle this now.

I agree with Erica, Children of Dune is by no means a rip off of Gladiator.
Gladiator did have some Frank Herbert influences in some scenes such as the Zuchabarr settings involving the slave trade. Ridley Scott almost directed the first Dune film but was forced to leave the project due to a family emergency. The duduk instrument has been used countless times in different films(The Crow, Ronin, etc.) What Brian has written here is excellent, a breath of fresh air. At least he nows how to do musical storytelling which is something a lot of young modern composers don't know how to do, and I think that could spell doom for the film music industry.

When I meant to say that modern composers who write themeless wallpaper music
ruin film music.
