Even though Williams has composed similar pieces, at least he doesn't bombard almost every score with signature accents ala James Horner. After listening to the same four-note trumpet run in Willow, Wrath of Khan, and (ridiculously so) Enemy at the Gates, I'm about to write the guy off. But then along comes something like The Rocketeer (or even Titanic) and I stick around a little longer.
