    I voted for Elfman because he has been my favorite composer for a few years. However, I absolutely LOVE Newman's score for Lemony Snicket's. The funny thing is that I sat through the whole movie thinking that it was Elfman's work.

    Elfman. But I'd take Prokofiev's score for "Alexander Nevsky" any day as far as movie scores go :mrgreen:

    Both are cool but give me John Williams anyday. Elfman is kind of redundant IMO. good moody stuff but it all sounds the same to me.

    I like John Williams as well...but listen to Holst's The Planets sometime and tell me you don't hear Williams in there.

    I agree about Elfman being redundant. However he wrote quite a few good scores before he started basically rewriting the same score over and over. Well, enough to satisfy me, anyway. :)

    And Mozart's Requiem (Duel of the Fates), Stravinsky, Hindemith, Mahler... John Williams does wonderful things with other people's music. OK, I'm being a bit too hard on him, but never seems to write anything that hasn't been heavily influenced by something else...
