Um...Calling John Williams the best composer of all time is like saying that all other composers cannot compose music! There are composers who were far better than John Williams!If you had mentioned one of the classical guys(Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn)or someone from the Baroque era(Vivaldi,Telemann,Bach etc) or maybe a romantic composer(Schumann, Mahler, Bruckner), I would not have minded much! Even then, "The Best Composer" happens to be music and not the composer!

Unfortunately, you guys seem to be "stuck" to either bashing or giving tooo much praise to a musical score. You either bash Williams/Horner or go to the extreme and give them way too much praise!

Again, remember,all music is recycling the same stuff! However, we have no excuse for plagiarism. So, dude, listen to lots of classical music and not just film music!

PS would the admin be kind enough to close this post which has gone for way tooooo long and only subjects in unnecessary rants which occur in other forums. Thank you!
