It is one of the worst comment i have ever read in this website. I know you man, you are the fan of Hans Zimmer, that's why you are not accepting this masterpiece. Come on man, Your Zimmer is nowhere near to the GREAT JOHN WILLIAMS. "Hook" is one of the best soundtrack of the century. It is not overrated and over hyped.

If everybody likes John Williams, that is because he just fulfill the expectation s of the listeners, unlike Zimmer, he knows very well to handle the Orchestration, whether it is synthesiser or classical intruments. Everyone in this world knows that Williams is the best composer of Film music. At the same time, I do agree that other composers also great like Thomas Newman, Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, Michael Kamen e.t.c. If Zimmer is not acknowledged by Academy Awards committee or by people, that means he should improve in composing music for movies better than Williams.

OK, Buddy
