GLADIATOR

Postby dman » Wed Dec 06, 2000 11:27 am

The score is a cross between the soundtrack from the peacemaker, and Mars form The planets. It is an awesome piece that is angry and inspiring. It evokes thoughts of the ultimate battle between good and evil. Hans has a unique style, and recurring themes in most all his music, but it is soothing. I give this soundtrack 4 stars out os 5. It is a great motion picture, and I don't usually talk like this, but Russell Crowe is a "bad mamma jamma!"

I agree with the Russel Crowe comment! Have you seen any of his other films?

Hans Zimmer composed part of the Gladiator soundtrack. The more soothing tracks were scored by Lisa Gerrard who has her own unique style. And she scored another Russell Crowe movie: The Insider. The soundtrack to that movie is fabulous as well.. very fitting for the movie.

I could almost tell that Hans Zimmer wrote some of the music - it has a certain quality that fits in with the Lion King soundtrack, which is one of my favorite soundtracks.<BR> Dont forget Beethovens B-day Dec.16th and bring your ear-trumpets to the festivities!<P>

A piece such as Gerrard's haunting Elysium was the perfect accompanyment to the visual. Within seeing the first scene of the movie, something told me this was going to be a modern classic. There hasn't been such a perfect marrriage of music and film since Saint-Saens, Danse Macabre, and Dracula.....and Russell Crowe was indeed the man of men in that movie....what would you think if I changed my name to Maximus???

I think that after that movie every man wants to be named Maximus. Russel Crowe is a stud, or as my little brother puts it, A BAD MAMMA JAMMA!!

I think you're right. I feel like I need to go hunting or rebuild my car engine or something. Maybe I should request a little Led Zepplin.

I think the world is a much safer place now with all this testosterone running around. Image

Fight Club, Predator, The Matrix, Peacemaker, all with enough hormones to put a full head of hair on Mr. Clean!!

True...true, all very worthy in their own right.<P>As we are listening to Beethoven.com, we must also include, Immortal Beloved. Gary Oldman's performance as the maestro, especially when he is playing Moonlight Sonata, possesses enough understated testosterone to make Indiana Jones quiver...<P>Anyone who can attract the likes of Isabella Rossalini's character, Countess Marie, gets my vote any day...With her temperment and beauty, I would have been at a loss for words to even muster a "hi".

I agree with the Fight Club and Matrix but what about a movie that can cross both roads of the sexes? Dangerous Liasons anyone?

You are too funny. If you're looking for a little female (testosterone) progesterone, try GI Jane! Maybe Fatal attraction. You will never look at a woman the same again.
