Star Trek II, Willow, The Rocketeer... don't talk bad about Horner's brass if you've heard these, they show great use of brass. And as far as all that stuff about stealing music... guess what?! EVERYONE DOES IT! Lesson one of music theory and composition... YOU'RE GONNA STEAL SOMETHING! I'll admit, Horner does it a lot, but you can't say Williams doesn't either... yeah, to say "The Planets (specifically Mars)" and "Star Wars" are similar doesn't do it justice, the attack on the death star is almost identical, except it has the star wars themes thrown in every so often. And then lets look at "Harry Potter" remarkably similar to "Schindler's List" right? Wow, amazing! Williams copied himself! And wait, how about "Episode II" the scene when Anakin and Padme leave for Naboo... then listen to "Burning the Town of Darian" from Glory... OH MY GOD THEY'RE SIMILAR!!!!!!!! WILLIAMS COPIED HORNER! EVERYONE DOES IT... GET OVER IT!

I'm 16... and I'm capable of understanding it...

Good Day,
