And I strongly disagree. Goldsmith has used the same repeating pounding beat in every action film since Total Recall. His music was so incredible in the 70's and early 80's. Now everything sounds like Total Recall, or Rambo, or the Mummy. I can't tell them apart other than a few ethnic cues.

As I commented once before, Goldsmith swiped the theme of "Box" the ice robot from Logan's Run and reused it for the theme of the great owl in "The Secret Of NIMH" I happen to love both soundtracks so I am not bashing him here. Again don't want to repeat myself, but I can find similar examples for Williams.

I didn't mean to suggest that anyone's opinion should be censored. So I guess we can just respectively disagree on these issues.
