Danny Elfman... what a hack.
Seconded. His Flash theme sounds just like his Batman theme.

Where's the richness and complexity of scores we got from Goldsmith, Bernstein, the other Bernstein, Previn, Herrmann, Mancini, M. Steiner, Tiomkin.... not to mention Prokofiev.

Hell, most tv shows - including cartoons - before 1980 had better scores than the movies of today.

Now we get Elfman churning out his usual boring crap, Williams rewarming stuff he did better 30 years ago, Randy Newman and his insipid little happy songs, and, for the arty set, Glass banging away at the same two notes throughout a whole damn film.
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
