    And The Thin Red Line was not Kubrick.

    Anyway, here's what has to be John Williams best score, I think:

    The Thin Red Line was Zimmer; not the biggest fan, but when he is on, he is on.
    As for John Williams, his last "great" score was A.I. in my opinion.

    He's become to generic for my liking. Minority Report was one of his better ones, though.

    I normally HATE Hans Zimmer. I hated his score for Gladiator, though as a general rule, I hate that entire movie, and the visual effects were atrocious. I also didn't get what was so special about the Nolan Batman scores, or the Pirates of the Caribbean scores. (Alan Silvestri was originally gonna compose Pirates; his credit is even on the earlier teaser posters before Bruckheimer canned him, and I think he would've been better).

    On the other hand, Zimmer's score for Inception and Sherlock Holmes were amazing and creative.

    Yep. Most of his scores cannibalize earlier works and are blatantly imitated by others.
    However, the previous statement still holds true to me: When he is on, he is on.

    The Last Samurai, Gladiator, Inception, The Thin Red Line and The Lion King (which won him an Oscar) are among the greatest compositions in history.
    The ones you mentioned I am not a fan of, however the Batman scores have grown on me.

    Can't believe he is doing the Man of Steel soundtrack. No. Just no.
