In Response to:
Now I'm not as keen on Horner as I am with John Williams, but I think he's a wonderful composer. Apollo 13, Titanic, Braveheart are all increadible peices. I don't deny that they sometimes soud similar, but that's only because it's all written by him. You can recognize John Williams when you hear it. You can recognize Thomas Newman when you hear it. You can recognize Hans Zimmer when you hear it. James Horner isn't as bad as you say he is. If you want to listen to repeated music, listen to Pirate's of the Carribean's "Black Pearl" and Gladiator's "The Battle." Than listen to Pirate's "Swords Crossed" and Black Hawk Down's "Still" or "Tribal War" (I can't remember which one it is). BTW, these are all Hans Zimmer. He is notorious for reusing music. Apparently, these soundtracks also sound a lot like "The Rock," but as I do not recall that music, I wouldn't know.
