Hi, Levente
how are you doing?
I've just read your interesting mail and I'd just like to add a few personal impressions. Certainly, there are some similarities between these two films, but don't let them confuse us. Blade Runner is a masterpiece, a jewel, whereas Minority Report is a good film, yeah, maybe one of the best Spielberg films in years, but that's all. Spielberg's film will never equal Bladerunner.
And this applies as well to music. No matter how much Williams tries to echo Vangelis' superb score, William's music is crap. Noisy, stupid, it lacks originality, beauty, it once again proves what I've been saying for such a long time: JOHN WILLIAMS HAS RUN OUT OF IDEAS, HE HAS NOTHING NEW TO OFFER, AND HIS MUSIC IS QUITE MEDIOCRE. Obviously, I won't go on comparing Vangelis with Williams, because Vangelis is a genius, wheras Williams is not. All you have to do is compare the discography of both musicians. If all Williams' recordings sound the same, Vangelis has made Jazz, avant-garde, rock, progressve, orchestral, new age, futuristic, soundtracks... and with excellent results most of the times.
Williams... please, go home
