Herrmann, Steiner, Korngold, Friedhofer, Moross, Elmer Berstein, Copland, Prokofiev, and Alfred Newman were all better, but Williams is pretty good. Unfortunately, his music has become tiresome.

Rey's Theme actually felt like a classic song that could have been in the OT.

Bernard Herrmann and Georges Delerue are the other two who, together with John Williams, make up my top 3.
