Wow.. Literally my two favorites! And legends of this theme-based era of the 80's and 90's. For me this is an impossible question. They each have their qualities (Horner R.I.P.). read more

Like it was his form of communication to a wider range of people. As I sit here, I’m listening to his amazing Titanic soundtrack. He was the real reason that I fell in love with movie music. I enjoy it, very much. I just can’t get into half of John Williams these days. So yeah, Horner is always going to be better than John Williams for me. read more

For example, I love the score for The Hunt for Red October and would probably call it one of my favorite scores, but that doesn't necessarily mean I prefer Basil Poledouris (the composer) over James Horner, John Williams, Danny Elfman, or Hans Zimmer. read more

John Williams HAS written good stuff, and his music is nice to listen too, but he steals some ideas from other composers, listen real hard, you`ll know what I mean. James Horner has done some good stuff as well, also nice to listen too. read more
