I agree with your comments! I can't understand people who criticise Hans Zimmer's scores. They say that film scores shouldn't contain electronic sounds. What's wrong with using synthesizers? It is funny but Zimmer's classical oriented soundtracks are also criticised by them. Take for example Hannibal. It is one of the best classical soundtracks in the history. A masterpiece! Hannibal proves that Zimmer is able to compose great music without using electronic sounds. There are composers in Hollywood who have to use only traditional orchestra because they aren't able to do anything else. They can only recycle their earlier projects. Of course Academy critics have nothing against it. These people don't know what is the real art. The only thing we can do is laugh at them. Zimmer has revolutionised film music and since 1994 he rules. It's out of the question.
