    He wrote a lot of music for run-of-the-mill big-budget blockbusters.
    He wrote the score for the Robin Williams bomb 'Bicentennial Man.'
    He was extremely prolific, and his scores tend to be very popular.

    He wrote the score for 'Aliens' in just 10 days.
    He wrote Celine Dion's hit song 'My Heart Will Go On,' for 'Titanic.'
