I'm sorry, your right I was sort of an ass. However I didn't like the way you responded to the Kong although I now realize how stupid the Kong is...

You like "Willow" well thats my second favorite score, next to "Road to Perdition". My third favorite is "A Beautiful Mind".

I've listened to a lot of scores too. So I in turn have the right to say "A Beautiful Mind" is incredible and it rules!

I NEVER said that Zimmer "stood for" all those things I said that is basically what "Tears of the Sun" is. And once again i've listened to enough scores to decide that I don't think "Tears of the sun" is anything speacial.

I have gotten all "A+'s" on all my songs...
