Ah yes...if all I desired was a melody this score would be average. But there is no magic in this score. It feels souless like most of Hans Zimmer's works of late (Thin Red Line excluded). For me a boring score is something that has no "soul" there is no way to define weather or not a score has soul. What you can do is measure it against other scores that attempt to do the same. In Williams's case your measuring this is score against some of his previous scores in the same genre. For example another score of Williams in the this genre would be "Hook" a far better score, that uses magic to much more effect. Is it just me or did the Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings score sound the same? The Rings score was slightly better than the Potter score, but to me both scores sound the same. If you want interesting scores of the same magnitude try:
1) Trevor Jones's Thirteen Days
2) Jon Brion's Magnolia
3) Chris Young's Murder in the First
4) Mychael Danna's Ride With the Devil
5) James Newton Howard's Snow Falling on Cedars
