Nowhere did we say that we consider ourselves experts on the topic. Our opinions are not truths. They are opinions. As "crititcs" most of us probably do not compose music. This is not to say we do not know music; most film music enthusiasts probably do know music, have studied at least one instrument, and at the very least, listen to it rather frequently. And I suppose you think you are the only one who can comprehend this music? You seem very knowledgeable about music, posting at a score site an insult to everyone else. Let's see your credentials. Your Masters in Music Theory? How about your Symphony in D# minor? I'm finding this quite "humorus."
