Hook is at best a 3 star score.   Tuesday, February 17, 2004 (9:14 p.m.) 

It might have alot of themes but so what, themes about characters that no one cares about it pretty useless. Overrated and overhyped.

It clearly shows that you and Joe are drunken fellows. Take some black coffee and listen to this score in normal condition

Then, you obviously are not a musician, and have not sat down, with the score in hand, and studied it's intricacies from beginning to end.

Possibly the most insane statement on this entire website. It's technically and musically one of the best scores from JW, maybe even the best, depending on taste for the genre. There's so much detail to discover at each listening session. The Ultimate War is probably the best action cue ever made, the amount of layers, details and modulations in that track is truly fascinating.

Uncover your ears!

It is one of the worst comment i have ever read in this website. I know you man, you are the fan of Hans Zimmer, that's why you are not accepting this masterpiece. Come on man, Your Zimmer is nowhere near to the GREAT JOHN WILLIAMS. "Hook" is one of the best soundtrack of the century. It is not overrated and over hyped.

If everybody likes John Williams, that is because he just fulfill the expectation s of the listeners, unlike Zimmer, he knows very well to handle the Orchestration, whether it is synthesiser or classical intruments. Everyone in this world knows that Williams is the best composer of Film music. At the same time, I do agree that other composers also great like Thomas Newman, Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, Michael Kamen e.t.c. If Zimmer is not acknowledged by Academy Awards committee or by people, that means he should improve in composing music for movies better than Williams.

OK, Buddy

I couldn't agree more. That's a stupid comment by the original poster. The characters are wonderful and the themes are lush, exciting, at times mysterious. What more could you want from a score. I'd take this over the incredibly overrated "Jurassic Park" or Revenge Of The Sith" any day.

Jurassic Park?! overrated???!!! You're talking about one of the maestro's greatest scores here that would have been his best score of the decade had it not been for Schindler's List. Though I think Jurassic Park and Hook are pretty good.
