HAHA. I couldn't help but burst out laughing when I heard that first clip Mr. Clemmensen provides. It sounds like a battle theme from a Final Fantasy game rather than a WWII drama. And the Chorus!! Hysterical. They're all saying "HA" on every note. Are they laughing at something? Even Hans Zimmer will occasionally give his cliche "Russian" chorus actual words to sing. Then, all of a sudden Schindler's List makes an appearance! Not only did he rip off the theme, but he has the Mandolin playing, just like Schindler's List. Some people say that theme is from Mahler's 8th Symphony, but it's only 5 notes, isn't even a theme, is only vaguely similar and only plays 3 or 4 times in the hour long symphony. It's like saying every theme that has a rising perfect forth is a rip off of the Force theme (or any other piece previous). Enough of that, Horner has sunk to an all new low with this score. Maybe the bad guy from Willow will show up, or from Zorro, since se uses that same little cheesy "bad guy" motif, only this time it's hilarious. What am I saying? Horner conjures up a good unintentional laugh. Well, as his chorus says, "HA! HA! HA! HA!"
