It was not a rip off one bit. These two scores sounded nothing alike except for that one last snippit. I've heard williams scores that have sounded similar to other scores. Just because Horner reuses snippits of music once in awhile doesn't make him the only guilty composer. I have both scores, and you're right: It does take someone tone deaf to think that it was a total ripoff. And I would imagine Williams doesn't give a rip if 5 seconds of something like his music appears on a 70 minute album.
