I don't know where to even begin to disagree with the previous sentiments. Only Williams' THEMES are good?! Did you people listen to the cue in "Empire" called "The Asteroid Field"? Or how about "The Fighter Attack" from "New Hope"? "The Barrel Chase" from Jaws? "The Well Of Souls" from "Raiders"? Or how about "Leaving Home" from "Superman"? My gosh, I could go on and on! To suggest that Williams can't compose anything good apart from themes is ludicrous! And James Horner a better composer than John Williams? I think not! As much as I enjoy Horner's music, you don't have to listen long to his scores to hear self-plagarism over and over and over. At least Williams is capable of new compositions on an ongoing basis.
