Aliens music...   Saturday, January 8, 2005 (4:11 p.m.) 

Here is the answer:
The music cue when Powell shoots Karl at the end of the film was actually an unused track from James Horner's Academy Award-nominated score for Aliens (1986), another Fox film. Specifically, the music was originally intended for a scene near the end of the film, in which Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) battles with the alien queen on board the Sulaco. Instead, an earlier music cue was reused, leaving the cue available for this film.

I thought it was written for Captain EO   Sunday, May 22, 2005 (11:42 p.m.) 

The "Powell shoots" que is also used as the opening titles to the Michael Jackson Disney 3D movie "Captain EO." Horner would have written the Aliens score the same year.
