You all seem to think that there can't be any doubt about Williams being the
better composer. Well I think Zimmer is because when Williams started composing
he didn't write anything new. He was another Jerry Goldsmith and another John
Barry just his stile was a little different. Here's Zimmer who was one of the first ones to use electronics and didn't need the orchestra all the time to
produce a great score.
John Williams received five oscars because he uses the orchestra and most critics like that because that's what they grew up with and they dislike most of
Zimmer's works because it's NEW and different and most critics don't want anything different than the orchestral scores composed by Williams and co.

Believe me Zimmer is at least as good as Williams and in my opinion better.
