I think, the point is, that moviecomposers working a lot with directors which says in the pre production phase of a movie: "Hi James, can you compose something that sounds like...?" And James says: Hmmm, lets see..." And then he do it: The japanes Flute, the four note theme (Used first when I renember right in Brainstorm), the droning bass, the walking piano... The director get what he wants and finally thats what the composer works for. Not to satisfied soundtrackcollectors which run behind every similiar stuff (In theatres and operas you meet the same kind of people: Going into a musical for the 30th time and seeing every mistake. The go to the theatres to see the mistake, not for the show.). Thats boring. When I buy a horner soundtrack, I listen to that what I get. If it touches me, it is good, if I melt away, its good. And if I hear four tone sequences and exploding pianos and japanes flute, what the #####does it mean to me? When I watch Star Trek, every time I can see the enterprise.

If the soundtrack works as that what it is, as soundtrack, the composer has done a good job. Everything else is the same old boring stuff of the important errorwatcher. You can find them anywhere. They are boring with there semi acknowledge of moviemusic. Not the composers :-)
