IMO the reason why these scores work so well for some people is because a great part of popular music has become very minimal. Just one note or one line where you before would use a multitude of such or elaborate the melody more and so on.
Zimmer really plays into that category - I think he is more of a "popular" music composer (don't get me wrong PLEASE) who uses the orchestra like he would use a rockband. He has some nice ideas once you reduce him to a small ensemble but he treats the huge orchestras he's sometimes using the same - and that doesn't work for me anymore, cause i have heard it so often coming from him.
Zimmer is always big when it comes to talking about how great his ideas are, when he should his music do the talking so to speak. But maybe that's what he is fearing, if he doesn't explain things to everyone it will just pass off as mediocre or something.
NOW - before someone gets me wrong, I didn't mean that Zimmer makes too big statements about how cool or great his music is, I have seen in some reviews that he is not the too arrogant type of guy.

Cheers to you all
