Well, then Spielberg's wrong. I wouldn't compare Zimmer with Williams, or indeed any composer with some musical education, that would be a disgrace to that person.

With no word did I say that the main theme of Da Vinci Code is the theme from Kingdom of Heaven, I just said that I heard KoH's theme quoted note for note in Da Vinci Code.
And deducing from this statement that I think Da Vinci Code sounds exactly like Kingdom of Heaven is just overreaction and besides, KoH is far superior to this.
And saying I have no clue about musical arts based on something I've never said is not just wrong, it's insulting. Especially when you consider that I DO have a musical education and that I'm fully capable of writing and orchestrating music.
And using that to point out your own "musical genius" is even more pathetic.
