Well, for a start, John Williams is NEVER overrated, I mean... after all, he IS the best composer of the... what? Last 50 years???? All the composers mentioned are amazing, though, many of them, being very young have been influenced by Williams' style, and I know very well most of the composers mentioned. If J.W. is nominated every year by the Academy... well, good 4 him, what's one more or one less Oscar in a carreer like his? It means that the Academy realy loves his work, and even winning 5 Oscars, how many has he unfairly lost? There's one particular composer, James Horner, he is very good, but most of his work is copied from other works, I suggest you listen to "Holst: The Planets" - a classical composition. Horner has even copied Williams' theme from Schindler in Enemy at the Gates (check the first minutes of music nr. 2). Even being deeply inspired in Wagner's work, Williams always comes up with great scores, great themes, always rich, always with some sort of evolution, things like Jurassic, Schindler, E.T. are patrimony of mankind!!!! He has composed some lesser soundtrack, true, but... look at the number os soundtracks he has created that marked history - just take Star Wars and Indiana Jones, two of the most known themes of the past 25 years. Williams is among the very great ones....
