I'm loving his perpetual truth and honesty lately as I am loving my rekindled appreciation of his movies and loyalty to the man in general. Spielberg's a stand up guy, no doubt in my mind of that.

"John is the most important collaborator I've ever had in my career. He makes me look good, he makes my films look better. I get a lot of credit that should be going to John. But I've kept the people who have been in my career who I feel are my family."
John Williams is the only good thing in about a third of his portfolio.

Spielberg: John Williams' music is brainless!

This account is no longer active - I joined the John Williams forum out of some romantic notion that I would be involved in discussions about the greatness of this man.
Instead I found my self defending John Williams from people who have gone as far as to call him an 'egocentric person' who 'muscles his way through the industry' and to also go as far as starting discussions about how 'bad' he is as a composer.
One thing I know is for certain, after we all perish John’s music will live on, performed in concert halls all around the world for hundreds of years to come , so all our bulls**t opinions are for nothing. I will be doing the best thing for me which to immerse my self to the music of the greats and stop wasting my time trying to convince other people that John Williams is actually 'not that bad'.
Thanks and goodbye.
