Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)
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.
I agree. I think people overstate the extent to which Horner's scores are repetitive in comparison to other major composers. He certainly has a signature sound, but he's hardly alone in that.
