Although I highly respect your opinion, I dare say you are absolutely wrong about this matter. I haven't heard this discussed score to WINDTALKERS but I have, alas, bought and heard BEAUTIFUL MIND by James Horner, for instance, and saw it at couple of sites evaluated with no less than four stars on five-star scales. Although BM score, in my opinion based on what I like, is a 2-star score at best if only for the stolen, though very nice, piano part, just because it is Horner to whom the Milky Way keeps forgiving carbon-copy style of composing and recent thematic threadbareness and of whom it's thought as constantly being unjustly aggrieved in the thought-up EMPIRE of Williams' scores, everything this guy does has recently been getting positive reviews for music that's been being rehashed so many times before that it became condoned on everyday basis.
