Ok, #1, this review is about Legends of the Fall, not Red Heat, and #2, I've seen your posts on this site before, and you sit there and type the same damn thing ever and ever again. That or you just pre typed it, and post in on every damn review. Either way, you need to get past your dumb ass Prokofiev obsession, because sorry, but Prokofiev really isn't all that great. I've really only ever heard 2 or 3 pieces by him that are enjoyable in the least. If you're going to talk about late romantic-modern era classical, go to Dvorak or Stravinsky. Way better. And Horner is DEFINATELY better then any Prokofiev stuff, and I've never heard any evidence of him copying it.
