I would completely agree with many of your opinions on john williams. I do believe that he is overrated and beyond his time. Has anyone noticed that he takes little pieces from each scores and just does variations on them in all his movies. It's ridiculous. I think Hans Zimmer is one of the most amazing composer's on the planet including klaus bedalt and so forth. These people are original. While it is difficult for someone as young as me to show the world what i can do and to break into the filmscoring industry i can only hope that one day hans can look at my mousic and point me in the right direction. By the way if anyone has any idea on how to get your music heard or recognized please email me at Marsboy2000@aol.com. But back to the point. John williams just needs to understand that just because he's the most saught for man in filmscoring doesn't make him good. He's had very few good scores that i can recall and even the ones that made him the most popular i don't like i.a. star wars. The simple fact people are afraid of change and most of all the future. How can you not say that the music from gladiator or pirates of the carribean or hannibal don't move you...their music is undeniably the best in film history and should be recognized for that...
