I completely agree. I am a Composer myself and writing the type of music that John Williams writes is a little eaisier than the type that Horner composes. Horners music is typically more moving and that is difficult to do. And for Horner to be able to do that shows true talent. Williams is excellent but Horner is a little better (in my opinion) I may be the only person ever to think that, but that is how I feel. His music far more beautiful and describes a film like A Beautiful Mind perfectly!
