I dare say my enthusiasm for Williams' music has been sealed as "unflagging", still and all I think we are not going to hear any type of that "old great" Williams anymore, the man to whom you refer through scores such as Superman or E.T.
I hate to even pronounce the words as "old" or "blasé" but I think it may slowly come with his --and generally any artist's-- aging.
For me, the last real grand movie score was Seven Years in Tibet or even Angela's Ashes (which I accidentally happen to enjoy more than when it came out).
I don't think John Williams' flair for composing is flat out gone, I mean I believe this craft he's always had is something a human never loses, only he's lately begun scoring as if he's been unimpressed with what he writes to. Seems like he underestimates the projects he's been working on recently. Perhaps.
The same "slackness", in my opinion, can't be said of his non-film music works. They always deliver what his movie scores haven't managed in last couple of happenings; his concert pieces are sealed with brilliance and longevity. Luckily.
