Peter pan is a really awesome and wonderful score. Score is very well suits the movie and i can't doubt about James' ability of giving us emotional and inspirational music. It is really true that the moment this soundtrack released, everybody expected that the score will be somewhat equal to "Hook". I say, it is totally stupid and foolishness. My friends, "Hook" is totally different from "Peter Pan", of course, characters are almost same but composer was different. My point here is clear and straight forward that it is totally stupid to make comparisons between two composers. James Newton Howard has unique way of composing music for movies and same thing goes to John Williams.
So, My humble request is stop making comparison between composers, not only composers even between two persons. Each person has different talent and skills.
PLEASE DO UNDERSTAND. OK
