    BTW, your piano is in perfect tune. Is it digital or acoustic?

    I admire his talents. My favorite work of his is Avatar.

    He turned mediocre movies into moving works of art. Spielberg and Cameron basically owe him their careers.

    I don't think that's true...
    He has made some great music scores.

    Wow, I'm stunned. He was amazing. I think I've seen all his films, his contribution to them was immense. Going back to 1997, his input into Titanic (forgetting all the hoopla that ensued) was critical. His music spoke more than the dialogue did.

    It's not like Cameron, Spielberg and Horner won any Oscars or anything!

    What I meant was that I don't find many of the films he scored to be mediocre. But I think you got me..

    I was agreeing with you, disagreeing with Hotjoe': "Spielberg and Cameron basically owe him their careers."

    They are pop entertainers who have on occasion done brilliant work (Shindler's List, Titanic). As IMDB says "Spielberg has countless big-grossing, critically acclaimed credits to his name, as producer, director and writer."

    Since 1986 "The Color Purple" to 2012 "Lincoln" he has been more serious and Oscar "worthy" but he was nominated for "Raiders" and other 'lesser' fluff.

    The first Raiders is one of the best adventure films ever made. I love Jaws and E.T. too.

    Exactly the way I feel. Music matters.
