woah... hold on there, I wouldn't go that far.
Yes some of these mv/rc composers are talentless, but not all of them. Definitely they seem pathetic compared to Goldsmith but NOT talentless...
You see, you have to blame the studios for this mess. I mean there has been some good that came out of MV, I mean look at John Powell and Harry Greggson Williams. Were they not once mv/rc composers? And do they not now have such great work? I mean have you heard Steve Jablonksy's Steamboy? A great score without that MV influence compared to something as bad as Transformers.

While unlike you, they are restricted to the continually repeated style of Zimmer because that is what the studio wants. You have the freedom to venture melodically anywhere! But mv/rc are restricted to that same clone and quite blant sound you hear over and over again. Rather than blaming MV/RC, blame the studious. Still, I do not approve of the MV way. I mean their scores really make them seem like talentless scums. It gets rather annoying doesn't it? I mean since when did a Greek mytholical epic film require a score that is probably compatible a robot movie like Transformers. MV/RC can really make me mad sometimes, and other times it makes me really pity those sad composers who have nothing better to do.

Don't worry, a time will come when we move away from MV/RC sound. I mean even Zimmer has done some brilliant stuff with intelligence. But there is still a long way to go before the idiotic producers decide the orchestral scores are the way to go. Sigh, when will they learn.

As for the "spotting sessions". CC hit them right on. How about this? I challenge anybody who lives in L.A. right now to sneak into their studio and reveal the secrets of their "spotting sessions".
