...quite a lot. Some of us truly enjoy the reoccurring themes in the works of one composer. This has been happening as long as classical music has been being composed and it brings a great deal of comfort to the listening experience for some people. Of all the titles you listed - only Glory comes to mind as sounding ANYTHING like Horners Braveheart score. However, in my opinion of course, Braveheart is a FAR SUPERIER score when compared as a whole to Glory, A Beautiful Mind or Apollo 13....ESPECIALLY Apollo 13. Casper? P'shaw! Even his Titanic score sounds tired and dated upon a full listen these days. The Braveheart score is a beautiful composition - beautifully performed and recorded - that will be appreciated for years and years to come (wether or not an awareness of the film remains). All comments are for the original score - I've never heard the "More music from..." version. However, I would like to throw in as an aside that(unfortunately)Dirty Dancing started the trend of releasing a second soundtrack album. Regardless of that fact that it was "songs", not score, I believe that's the beginning of the consumer milking in regards to soundtracks.
