I'd dare you to say that to the face of Ennio Morricone, Thomas Newman, James Horner, Alexandre Desplat, Howard Shore, Elliot Goldenthal, Philippe Rombi, George Fenton, Patrick Doyle, Christopher Young, Wojciech Kilar, Brian Tyler, Marco Beltrami, Mark Isham, Dario Marianelli, Bruce Broughton, Mark McKenzie, Roque Banos, Joe Hisaishi, Mychael Danna, David Newman, or any one of the dozens and dozens of other film music specialists who learned composition, counterpoint and orchestration at some of the finest music schools in the world.

You've got a real snobbery thing going on - coming on to a site like this with an attitude like "I only listen to modern music, but I think I know everything about film scores".

Give it a rest.
