ok, i'm pretty tired of reading the posts that argue hans has no talent, is a hack, etc. mr. zimmer's success speaks for itself. he doesn't need the no talents here (including myself and mr. clemmensen) to validate his work. hans has the utmost respect of hollywood, his fellow peers, and his fans (equal to or greater than the number of williams, horner, shore, etc.). steven spielberg, a devout williams fan, has said publicly, he LOVES hans and his music and wants him to score one of his future films. mark my words, hans will score at least one of spielberg's movies. second, he is the most sought after composer in hollywood. whether you like his style or not, hollywood loves his style for movies, and they love the fact that his scores sell!!! and this argument that his style is a sin for movie music, etc. are you kidding me? this man, along with williams of old, is bringing new fans to the world of movie music by the droves! be it simple or not, movie music has never been as popular, and most literary/scholarly score magazines have supported this claim.

and lastly, the tell all of movie music critiques...the international film music critics association nominated hans in 2006 for 6 six awards, including score of the year (da vinci code), composer of the year, one in the comedy category (the holiday), two in the action/thriller category (potc: dead mans' chest, the da vinci code), and for best single cue of the year (the da vinci code, chevaliers de sangreal). he won for best comedy (the holiday) and best action/thriller (da vinci code). and let us not forget his nominations for grammys and golden globes.

his work speaks for itself. for a man that has scored more movies in the last 4 years than any other composer, i applaud him for his accomplishments and the work he has done. if williams or shore were producing 3 scores a year too, i'm sure their work would get somewhat redundant, which it already is. zimmer fans are forced to struggle with taking just one amazing score a year, or 3 good/great scores. i prefer the 3 good/great scores. and remember, hans writes what his producers/directors want...and that does not always include use of the full orchestra. while his peers are being kicked off projects, he continues to fill their gap/keep his job(s).
