wait a minute.....   Wednesday, July 10, 2002 (4:08 p.m.) 

I was reading the review for The Bourne Identity while this moive was being played. But when I heard the main theme to Enemy at the Gates being played I had to stop and listen carefully. I love James Horner's music a lot and he is my favorite film composer, but I am going to have to admit that he does steals from his own scores. I was reading an interview saying that he tries his best not to do that, but when I heard this melody being played twice I found it hard to believe that. I know that everyone already knows that James steals from himself, but I couldn't help but point that out.

EATG is one of most repetitive Horner scores, he's ever done. (Perfect Storm is in the top ten too ). I respect that score's power, though (it's one of my Horner favorites).

Perfect Storm has beautiful, but simple themes and the score is emotionally powerful.

I heard some stuff from Titanic as well. I thought that it was good but a mastermind like horner should have been able to come up with some new material.
