Comments about the soundtrack for Braveheart (James Horner)

Edit | Delete
Horner's self-plagiarism is still a perfect score

This is, in my opinion, one of the greatest movie soundtracks ever. I actually disliked the movie (Wallace seemed kinda hypocritical - going on a killing spree to avenge his wife and then fooling around with the princess), but I was fortunate enough to buy the score before I saw the movie, so it doesn't bring the movie to mind. My opinion goes back and forth between this and The Lord of the Rings as my favorite score (another movie I disliked, by the way). I have noticed how Horner plagiarizes himself so often, but at least one phenomenal score came out of it, so I'm willing to be lenient. Horner's later works aren't nearly so good, though.
