> Why ***/red, it should be */red -- What? Apparently, you don't know good film music. This score was perfect for the film. What was wrong with it? John Williams is the King of film music.

I like Zimmer too, doesn't mean that I don't like John Williams. Favoring particular composers is a folly I find in almost all filmtracks patrons. Even I tend to have a bias in favor of Jerry Goldsmith and Bruce Brougton. Now there really is nothing wrong with picking favorite composers who we seem to notice perform well on a regular basis, that's not where the folly lies. The problem can be found more so in how we often tend to exagerate that preference to a point where we feel that the composer can do no wrong and all others are inferior. That is where the folly lies.

100% agreed. I think this is a problem especially with JW fans. I like some of his scores (Amistad, SW, Lost World, AOTC, this one), some annoys me (Harry Potter).

My favorite is Hans Zimmer, but I'm a fan of film music not a particular composer.

...Even his not so successful scores (in artistic or commercial sense) has always this "something" that it sticks in your mind (and often in the heart) for a long time (f.e. "The Accidental Tourist"). He is a master, you want or not

Sorry. Williams usually fails to evoke any emotions from me. He's too technical.
