So what exactly is your point then? It just read like a roundabout way of saying that you don't like orchestral classical music or thrash.

Nah I like thrash. Just not the kind of people that listen to it, or the 50 minute long shred solos. The rest is fine.

Also, I'm not saying I don't like virtuosity at all. If they can play well, I'm fine with that. But it doesn't do anything for me unless they do something with that skill. Showing off basically, isn't gonna hit me like a well-written song does.

I guess what it really boils down to is your attitude and definition of music. I kinda don't like it when people think music is just one thing. Like the more complex the musician the better they are. But there's also complexity in layering music, and having a bunch of cool stuff happening at once. Whether these people have had extensive musical education or not isn't important, as long as what they're playing makes sense to THEM.
Yeah, but to dismiss complex and/or virtuosic music seems equally unfair.
There's nothing wrong with overly complex orchestrations or shredding, as long as the music itself is interesting. I love some raw noise, but something mindblowingly complex can likewise be viscerally overwhelming in a good way.

Yeah, that's what I was saying above this. There's a difference between showing off and using it to show emotion or provide a feeling. I definitely don't write things off just because the musician is talented.

I usually really like the neo-classical music; some classical music is great for me but the common profound admiration of the likes of Bach, Mozart, etc. seems too much in my opinion.

Ha ha...the use of classical music in movie scores is exactly the reason I had for voting that classical music is still relevant today in society at large.

Also, my guess is that when people get older, they may appreciate classical music more. I used to find most of it so boring when I was a child. (Exception: Peter and the Wolf, but my record came with entertaining pictures.)

Now that my brain cells have reduced in number, I can enjoy a lot of classical music and find the details of its composition to be engrossing. I also feel it is some of the most emotionally moving music ever created.

I kinda think it is fun to see how classical music gets used in surprising ways in commercials for trivial things.

I'm gonna put a short answer. If Anthony Hopkins writes classical, yes.
