Blade Runner vs Minority Report? Wha?!   Saturday, November 9, 2002 (6:16 p.m.) 

Okee Dokee, so I guess I've got 'dis figured out...
On one side are people who accuse John Williams of "not being a genius"...
And on the other side are people who balk at Vangelis...
I dunno how Blade Runner even got brought up in this subject!
Lemme tell you somethin', I like John Williams' scores even more than Vangelis, and I've listened to this score, and (lemme tell ya' somethin'!) Minority Report can't even BEGIN to compare to Blade Runner! Looking back, it's a mystery how Blade Runner wasn't even NOMINATED for an Academy Award. From the soaring spectacle of the music played at the beginning, Roy's pet dove's ascension and the Los Angeles of the future, the soft and ambient mark of the unicorn dream, the threatening electronica of the superviolent climax in that intoxicating and musty deluge, the provocative and likably rambling blues, and a thousand other movie moments from Vangelis' score make this a unique, untoppable sci fi score.
Minority Report... eat your heart out, and it probably won't take too long, save a couple bright lights in a particularly same old, same old score.
