First, I have never mentioned that James Horner is a better composer than John Williams, so I don't know from where you got that statement. But, on the other hand, he is - at least to me. Yes, you could go on and on, and yes you can hear his self-plagiarism. But you have to take in consideration, how much time do the producers give Horner to compose. For example, he was given only 2 or 3 weeks to compose Troy - so no wonder. As I have already said - in my opinion. If someone has got a problem with that - well, it's his problem, not mine.
