It's no gospel, it's just a realistic view on a very mediocre and lifeless score.
And having a lot of knowledge and experience with film music isn't being a "snob", it's the ability to sort out the bland and ordinary from the extraordinary.

If someone indulged himself in cooking every day for two years, he has developed a finer sense for flavours and a better hand for products than someone who just started yesterday.
It's not "snobbish", it's the way life works.

People who listen less to film music understand less than those who listen to it regulary. It's that simple.

Live and learn.
Those who have less experience would do good listening to those having more, than just stomp their foot on the groud and say "you're snobbish".
