I've listened quite closely to feel and understand the atraction this music has, but I can't overcome the thin plastic syth doesn't evoke any deep emotion, except the urge to press "skip". I guess I'm "coldhearted".

I give it 2 stars, because the music isn't all that bad, but it all sounds very outdated. It does support the movie very well, and as such it is effective, but non of the themes can stand on its own outside the movie. It is not memorable in any way.

The review on Hoosiers is hilarious I agree. This music is now way near a "masterpiece" status and it falls short of being a standard for other sportmovies.
