Thanks for the great reply Blake, I dont have a problem with differing views. The problem I see forming with this atmosphere is that it is completely confrontational, often real debate and discussion getting lost, and it's just degenerating, almost to the infantile atmosphere of the console fanboy mentality. GK in his reply just reitirated my point. That he's not being a snob when he's belittling someone else's opininon, he just simply has more "experience" as a film score lover. With his lack of respect, I beg to differ

I enjoyed Inception, but I have quite a experienced and developed knowledge of film scores so that's just sheer and utter bull. I also study, write and perform music. Is GK saying that my love for the silent Benhur score, the omen, the good the bad and the ugly are all terrible scores aswell, I need more "experience" as my appreciation of Inception shows a lack of musical knowledge and knowledge of scores in general and their use in film.
