Okay, maybe "rip off" is a bit harsh and dramatic. I'm a huge fan of movie scores/epic soundtracks as I use them when I write. When catching the STID trailer the other day (Movie was awesome!), I enjoyed the incredible tunes of Two Steps From Hell. "Freedom Fighters" is probably their most popular song and has been featured on many film trailers. When hearing it again the other day, I immediately started wondering what other Sci-Fi film I remembered using it recently. After not coming up with anything, I gave up and moved on. The other day I listened to it again and started picturing scenes from 'Oblivion' but I knew that couldn't be right because M83 scored 'Oblivion'. However, when I listened to the 'Oblivion' soundtrack again, I noticed what I would call a glaring similarity in "Freedom Fighters" and 'Oblivion's title track, 'Oblivion'. I'm beginning to think that M83 may have drawn some inspiration from "Freedom Fighters" when doing their score. Maybe I'm wrong, if so, please do let me know. I'm not claiming they sound just alike. I just think there is a pretty glaring similarity. Let me know if I'm crazy or if you hear it too.
If anybody would like to provide the embedded versions, I'd be grateful. I can't do it from this computer.
