Why are there people who think we are crazy just because we like Hans' work?

That's the question I would ask to anyone who likes Hans' works so as me. I've read tons of reactions about "King Arthur" and other recent Hans Zimmer"s albums, and I've read comments, either good or bad, about them. I saw many comments where some people say we are crazy because we like the albums Hans scored and I can't believe that they like to bash both the artist and the fans so deliberately. I've never seen that kind of bad reaction about any other composer I went on filmtracks.com. Maybe they're purists who don't like composers and also pioneers in movie scoring at the same time. They don't believe that any instument is good to create music as long as the music is enjoyable, so as the olds folks from the Academy.
The thing I know is: since 1994 (From "The Lion King" to "King Arthur"), Hans Zimmer has been the most consistent composer when it comes about movie scoring, there was no long period of lacking inspiration, he is not the kind of guy who recycles that much his older movie scores, he came out regularly with good albums of different genres and he still does great work. Those who don't appreciate Hans should not write to bash an artist living his life with such a talent. When I listen to a movie score, the music has to be enjoyable, and makes us feel the emotion of the film. That's all that matters.
