I thought that soundtrack sounded familiar

    Hows this for wierd -
    I was testing the VPOS on RPTV (trying to get it centered and I was playing Cast Away to center a 1.85:1 image and then I put in The Long Kiss Goodnight to center a 2.35:1 image. I heard what sounded like the same music. I never noticed this before.
    A quick trip to IMDB shows that Alan Silvestri did the score for both.
    I guess James Horner is not the only one to recycle themes (much as I found to my disgust while watching the trailer for Time Machine).

    I just watched Interview with the Vampire, and I was amazed at how similar Hannibal was to the movie in its music.

    I just watched Open Your Eyes. Am I dreaming or is the score from Alien used during several scenes?

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    It is very common that composers uses what they had done before on new works,not exactly the same(there will be some twisted part with the use of different music instruments) as what you may hear.
    Although HANS ZIMMER is no different as the others,at least he's better than HORNER.

    Hannibal was done by Hans Zimmer, while Interview with the Vampire was done by Elliott Goldenthal.

    So worse: Hans Zimmer is recycling other people's stuff!
