I think you will find them enjoyable and worth a listen.

1: You are mistaking my intentions once again. I wasn't trying to be sarcastic. I am sorry whether that's the message that went through.
2: It's a good thing that we at least agree about Goldsmith. As far as Williams is concerned try getting his Episode II soundtrack(if you haven't yet purchased it, that is). You will listen to some really original touches by him(track 3 for example).
3: I cannot find Zimmer's works "enjoyable" simply because they are VERY simple in emotions. It's either "heroism," or "love," etc etc etc etc..... There is no deep meaning in his music. There is nothing for me to enjoy. Every emotion presented in his music is so square and obvious that gets very repetitive after a while. You are right about "what masses like." However, i wasn't trying to criticize the masses. The message i am trying to get through is that there is better film music out there that can actually offer you a worthwhile experience. There are different music tastes, i agree, but the fact that Elliot Goldenthal is a far superior composer still stands. Just try listening to more of his concert work (especially his Vietnam Oratorio:Fire Water Paper)and tell me whether that music of his is at the same artistic level as Zimmer's. Just TRY to discover something else in music and film music in general besides simple emotions. I'm merely suggesting, not attacking you.
