    I like Horner, though he is often criticized for re-using a lot of his own music. I don't mind, because It makes it more instantly recognizable when I hear it. Although I will say, my favorite score of his is to the Legend of Zorro. There was a great blend of action and thematic cues that sent chills up my spine. His recent Avatar was great as well - the main theme resembling a bit of Titanic but ultimately souring higher... Not my favorite composer, but do always look forward to his scores. Other favorites of his that I love are Troy and even Spiderwick Chronicles... (The atmosphere of SC was amazing)

    I like Horner too - Some favorites are Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, and the two Zorro soundtracks.
