Goldsmith rips off his burglar guy theme from Dennis the Menace note for note and uses it for the Huns to great effect. But who cares? That score rules! Get the promo if you can...

See, it doesn't matter if it's done well. And that analogy is taking it a bit too far. Goldsmith and Williams rip off more often than that, and Horner less often than presented in the analogy. Horner is still the most unoriginal composer working, but SO WHAT? He still has something new every score. Judge it on musical terms, not originality (and EATG is most certainly NOT an intentional rip from Schindler's List.)
