No, I'd rather see a comparison of Fellowship of the Ring and William's score to Artificial Intelligence. Harry Potter (aside from the whole of "The Chess Match" and the opening fanfare for "The Quidditch Match) is a Home Alone / Hook rehash and disappointed me after a day or two.
A.I. on the other hand, was a brilliant, dark, emotional and moody score. It was most likely William's best score since Hook. It makes me sore to think everyone is screaming about Potter and they so quickly forget the far superior of the two.
