John Williams should be offended by Superman Returns!! in General Discussion Posted December 15, 2006 Is it just me, or was John Williams completely screwed over by Warner Bros, and in particular, Bryan Singer. I just recently got the DVD of Superman Returns and was looking forward to seeing a modern telling of a movie that I loved as a child. I remember being 10 years old and sitting in the theater with my mouth wide open as the credits started to role. The combination of the credits, outlined in blue, flying overhead, and John Williams' powerful score were amazing in 1978, and still are today!! So here's my gripe................... The opening of Superman Returns is a complete retread of the original 1978 film, except....................... Did anyone notice in the opening credits of Superman Returns that there is one name, and one name only, that is shown at a quicker rate and shorter duration than all the other ones??? You guessed it, John Williams!! I find it even funnier, if you are able to read it, what his credit actually says is only, "Superman Theme Composed by John Williams". The music for this film is credited to John Ottman, WRONG!!!!! Aside from a couple of notes thrown in here and there, the entire film score is basically John Williams' original music cut, pasted, and butchered with wannabe attempts at his style, by Ottman, thrown in between. Wow, did I ramble, or what!! I really hope I'm not the only person who saw it this way. Looking forward to your reactions!!
