I highly recommend that any aspiring film composer (and filmaker as well) watch this great interview with John Williams at USC's Thornton School of Music.  There's 6 parts and an Introduction.  It really gives alot of insight into the process of film music, as well as John Williams' own approaches.

If you don't know who John Williams is, leave now.  You're not cool.    Tongue

Here's the link:

An IMDb user praising this "diverse" and "complex" music:
"Look at the incredible variety of themes he does - from Gladiator, a masterpiece, to Matchstick Men, a fun, jazzy style, then Pirates - a theme that moviegoers (however musically inclined they may be) will never forget. These scores are not only more diverse, but more complex as well."    :-\
