Actually, I enjoy a lot of Horner's pre-90s work like Star Trek II and Krull. His style has changed to pop music mentality over past few years and I just wonder, what the hell happened. Braveheart and Apollo 13 were nominated in 1995, but both of those films were immensely popular and recieved best picture nominations. I just find a lot of his themes (when they are original) too typical as most of the time I can sing where it's going to go before the music itself even tells me. I find it incredibly boring to not be surprised, or to hear an extremely cliched idea, which is often in Horner. I don't "hate" Horner per say, that's a strong word, I just hate primarily, his stealing of melodies from other people and not properly crediting them. Sometimes I don't mind when people take melodies and use them, but whenever he does he usually has no rhyme or reason to do so. For instance, Williams dilliberate allusion to Holst's Mars: The Bringer of War in the opening of Star Wars.

To find the melody that Horner uses from Prokofiev's Ivan the Terrible, it's about 2 minutes into a section called "Forward to Kazan" and also at the end of the section entitled "The Tartar Steppes." I could always make a small mp3 clip and upload it to my website if you're interested in hearing it
