You cannot measure the quality of a score by its popularity. Lets take for example Goldenthal's score to "Alien 3." It is a masterpiece of Contemporary music but quite unfortunately not as popular. People who know about this score often regard it as mere noise. Big mistake.
Oh, and about me stating my opinions...well let's just say that i care about what people listen to and more generally about the future of film music.
"Just because you don't think its special, doesn't make it not special to someone ELSE." I think you may have misunderstood my intentions. I am talking about film music as a form of ART. And whereas the particular score might fit the movie very well, there are other composers out there who write their music at a different, more mature level.
