This is exactly what I get so mad about day after day after day.
John Williams is TOTALLY overrated!! The problem is that John Williams
belongs to the "normal" composers and the composers of Media Ventures
including HZ don't.
How can such a monumental score like Zimmer's and Gerrard's Gladiator receive *** ?? That's bloody insane!!
Just compare that soundtrack with Star Wars Episode I which was one of the worst
Williams scores. Doesn't this seem a little strange? ***** for that bunch of
crap and *** for Gladiator!!
I really don't care too much about James Horner...I had my share of his music (I played his Titanic on the piano for over three years now and listened to the score for at least five years).
Another good example is Williams' Amistad and Zimmer's Tears Of The Sun. While JW's score is just a poor version of what Hans Zimmer could've done with the project Tears Of The Sun has some great cues, very moving music and great vocals. And what do you get on this site?? **** for Amistad and *** for Tears Of The Sun.
And giving * to Pirates Of The Caribbean is just the result of bad journalism
and no feeling for music. It's certainly not the best soundtrack of all time
but it did not deserve anything below ****. I guess it's just hatred against
I must say the only scores of John Williams I really ENJOYED were Harry Potter
Home Alone and Schindler's List, in my opinion almost all the rest is just average.
Before discovering this board I thought I was alone with my opinion but greatfully I'm not and since the most of you seem to know much about movie scores I take you're opinions a lot more seriously than the ones from most of the journalists from this site that seem to have a contract with John Williams.

Keep up supporting Media Ventures (My favorite one: Harry Gregson-Williams)
