Ok, now I personally like Zimmer's scores, and his style of heavy brass/percussion writing, but to sit there and say that he's better than Williams (who is the beast film composer hollywood's ever had, not to metion one of the greatest american composers in history), AND call his fans stupid, is going way overboard. And if you want to argue so much about it, the just look at it the way of that Williams has one 5 oscars for coming up with completely entertaining and origional scores. But in recent years, the one oscar that Zimmer wrote, was for a movie, where the biggest cue of music was copied directly from Holts' "Mars: The Bringer of War". Thiis is Gladiator I'm talking about. And if you don't know classical music at all (which I'm sure you don't), go get a recording of The Planets and listen to Mars, then listen to "The Battle", or "Barbarian Herd". You'll see what I mean.
