I haven't. Maybe I should have added a disclaimer to my post: "IF what Ethan says is ture, THEN this will be John William's third self-ripoff in a row".

Try listening to the Harry Potter aoundtrack sometime. The main theme is lifted directly from Schindler's List (of all things!).Also, the Phantom Menace score took some passages from Jurassic Park, but that's a minor quibble.

Not stylistically like Horner (although they do both tend to unsubtley beat listeners over the head with their motifs). Williams is becoming like Horner in that he is walking down the same self-plagiarizing path that Horner has been on since the early 90s.
