If you look past the factual inaccuracies, appalling spelling, and comprehensive overuse of the exclamation mark, this gentleman has made a number of good points.
Three years on from my original post, Horner's Troy remains one of his most blatantly plagiarised scores to date.
Doesn't it throw you off when you're watching Troy, and suddenly the score throws you into Aliens, Star Trek II, Willow, Schumann's Spring Symphony, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Vaughan-Williams, and a hundred others, all at once, in a hamfisted melange of stolen ideas?
Philip Glass is getting more film work nowadays, but his style is unsuitable for most of the stable Hollywood movies currently being produced. Rautavaara is undoubtedly a genius, but alas I suspect too clever for today's film music. Furthermore, I have extremely low optimism for an 80 year-old Finnish classical composer can stumble into a career as a Hollywood superstar.
