Zimmer is rather an "emotionteller" than "storyteller", but that's what I actually adore in his score.

His approach to scores is more modern. He wants to rather compliment characters' feelings than action, which is more characteristic of Williams and older composers.

If you have heard any soundtracks from 30s-50s you might have think of action, because composer's invention went rather for suitability than melody and emotions.
