...AND, may I point out, that Horner has tried to reinvent his music. Please recall Vibes, even though it was ambient sound and, overall, a flop, this was a genuine departure for Horner's scoring career. He knows what works, and keeps to that. And the majority of audiences and directors seem to continue to eat it up. I agree it gets dull (though I take pleasure in seeing Honer-scored films and trying to pick out the various other soundtracks lifted), but it works, and it sells. And that, tragically, is what this business is about these days.
