Of course I have written that. There is my name written under the comment, ins't it? What I believe is you don't get the words "in my opinion". That means that I have been listening to his music, buing his scores and still the material is not as good as the scores by horner, jerry and chris. And yes, of course is James Horner a better composer than John Williams - and again IN MY OPINION and TO ME. You do undestand the meaning of these words, don't you? I'm starting to realise that you are a James Horner hater, right? I have never said that John Williams is an untalented composer. I'm not a John Williams hater or similar - I owe plenty of his works. The best score by far I have listened to, and not only the themes, but major part of the score, is A.I. - this IS INDEED an excelent piece of art. Look, I don't want to argue with you about who is the better composer like kids on a playground. The scores by John Williams are - in my opinion, and espacialy on this website - overrated. But to you he is the God of film music, right? I have got no problem with that.
