I've just always disliked hard rock metal scores for films. It's cheesy to me, faux cool b.s.
What kind of scores do you mean in particular? Often it seems that it's just poppy hooks dressed up with electric guitars and drums. There is a lot of very cinematic sounding metal, without sounding like metal arrangements of orchestral tunes.
