1: Clearly you haven't heard much of Bates' work.
2: To say that Poledouris' music doesnt have a focus on ambience texture or mood doesnt really make him any better.
3: Poledouris is dead, gotta have music coming from SOMEONE.
4: No one asked for this Conan remake anyway. You expect Poledouris to score this pile of crap movie? See Number 3.

Give Bates some credit. He's actually getting film scores, people like his work, and really, he's a pretty nice guy (as opposed to some snobby, deluded composers).
