> i think your silly post says all ...

Yes, it does... Vestard's post was pretty funny. From your other posts, Ethan, it looks like your a Horner fan too... hell, I was a Horner fan and I'm still a fan of his earlier work... but if you look at the careers of these two composers (Williams and Horner) then it should be painfully obvious that Horner doesn't even belong in the same category as Williams... or any other composer. Horner over the years has become a great arranger and orchestrator of his own and other people works. But to call him a composer would be factually incorrect. He doesn't compose anything. If anything, he is a great person to have to temp your film. Sure, his music does what film music should do and that is to enhance the visuals but the problem that most people have including myself is that he doesn't write any new or original music anymore... O.K. maybe a cue here and there will be different then anything he has composed before but his music and themes still sound exactly the same as his previous works. You can't deny this.

So, is Horner a good composer... No!

Does he understand film music and it's purpose....Yes! I don't deny that!

But the argument is... is Horner and better composer then Williams. The answer is No.
