Itís true that complex orchestral scores are more on the fringes now. Donít look for one in a blockbuster, unless someone like Desplat or Giacchino is at the helm. Hollywood is stagnant, but old-fashioned film music is still de rigueur in Japan and Europe, and video games love to evoke the classic movie style.

Thereís so much great new music out there if you care to look. Also, the collectorís market is insanely active, and wonderful old scores are being released every week. I for one am looking forward to The Peacemaker Complete.
