Who is CK? He's called Clemensen, not Kühn

If his reviews are becoming similar, ever thought about the possibility that Zimmer has settled into an unimaginative routine as well? And he has!
Clemensen cares very much about the effectiveness in the film, that's why it's SO painful to hear always the same routine in vastly different movies.

The more fame Zimmer gathered, the lazier he has become.
When you listen to film scores or/and watch movies on a regular basis, how can you accept this immovable, ever- returning style as effective anymore?

It has reached a point where it actively hurts films.
