Well, I know it's your opinion, and I will respect it. But you don't have to trash John Williams, and let the world know that you hate him. You're not only being disrespectful to JW fans, but also to John Williams himself. He deserves respect. After all, he did save symophonic film music. I'd rather listen to JAWS or STAR WARS over the Grease soundtrack any day. John Williams is, by far, the greatest composer out there right now. He's been on top for a good 30 years.
Don't get me wrong. I like Howard Shore too, but he hasn't done that much. Sure, he won best score in 2001, but the movie was a major contributor to that. You see, sometimes a soundtrack is so good, it makes the movie better. And then sometimes the movie is really popular, and the music becomes an instant classic. The Lord of the Rings was a great movie and soundtrack, but Shore hasn't shown this talent in any of his other film scores. On the other hand, John Williams continues to show his talent in all of his scores.
Now may I ask you, why it is that you Hate John Williams? Is it him you hate, or is it his music? Or could it be that he makes a lot of his competition look bad? Well, this is only my opinion! But I will never go so low as to say that I hate a composer. They haven't hurt me in any way, so why should I hate them?
They're just doin' their job!
