Some good points in this one - and the whipped cream part was amazing .
I honestly don't understand why these type of scores need that huge amount of assistants either - maybe one orchestrator for every ostinato?. I remember, that back in the 90s Zimmer used to work with far less people and the results were much more entertaining and - well - diverse. Even if his constructs are not the greatest, there was a certain quality to his music.
Also, what for does he need these huge orchestras? Usually at least two tubas, ten horns and eight trombones (!). Howard Shore created this immensely huge sound of the Lord of the Rings trilogy with a much much smaller brass section.
