You and your whining "sounds like this and thatter"

Why do people always complain if the written scores resemble previous ones?
It's for that reason that composers are picked to fine-tune a movie with their work, because they (the directors, and whoever else is involved) know what style/type of music the composer tends to apply to express his talent. It's what defines a composer.
So why should every single score be a total stranger to its predecessors? Of course, the score is to accompany a particular movie, so when hearing the score, you should only (be able to) envision fragments/moments from the movie itself, not from any other movie. But is that the case, did you ever got caught with fragments of another movie? Name me any score that made you think of a total different one. None I guess, just those tiny little twitches, that's all.
So please stop the complaining, and I also look at the reviewers of this site (my respects). Just enjoy the piece itself, and judge it standing on its own.
