• In Response to: The real Zimmer... (docile)

> It seems to me people only have a problem with his action music, so why not just bash that instead of all of his work?

And the fact that it doesn't sound like old orchestral stuff...

> I think a lot of people haven't really heard any Zimmer and just bash him because it is the thing to do. Like poor Olivier saying Zimmer's main
> theme for Pearlharbor was beautiful over at the FSM messageboard. He got bashed for saying that.

Well the "War" cue is gorgeous. It's the only part of the score which I've heard.

> Also, there is a lot of hate and stupidity over at the FSM messageboard right now in the "Jerry-Goldsmith-implied-that-he-didn't-like-Media-Ventures" post.

I skipped that thread.

> Meh. I feel sorry for people that can't just enjoy all types of soundtracks. I could go from "To Kill A Mockingbird" right to "Con Air" and enjoy both of them.

So, you now like To Kill A Mockingbird? I love the main theme and I like Con Air too!

> I don't know what I'm trying to say. I guess people that don't like Zimmer should try one of his comedy scores or non-action scores.

They'll still complain, because they are only searching for one stereotyped version of greatness...
