Well, I think the same. I used to like James Horner's Music...but now I prefer John Williams (despite he is a thief too! But when he borrows some Stravinsky's, Bartok's or Olivier Messiean's music, it is always justified.)

Here are some piece of information about Horner:

Willow's Theme = Schumann's 3rd Symphony
Willow's First Track = Mozart's Requiem
The land Before Time Track 3 = Nuages by Debussy
Apollo 13's second theme = Appalachian Spring by Copland
Braveheart+Bicentennial Man climax builder (when Little Miss get married and the Robot wears clothes for the first time) = "Jupiter" (mes.193) from the Planets by Holst
etc,etc,etc...when I have time to waste I'll continue this list;)

Let's sum up:
Casper=Braveheart=Titanic=other horner's score (same music but dofferent covers:)

John Steven,
Film music Lover
