Never understood why people make such a big deal about this. Composers usually get hired because they HAVE a certain recognizable style.
Even when I was a kid I saw tons
of similarities between the scores for Superman, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones, but I never cared. They were all still awesome anyway.
And the same goes for the music in TWOK and Aliens. If the music is kickass and works for the movie, that's all I care about. And that music really WORKED.
