Sibelius and Terminator

The opening of Sibelius’ under-rated first symphony and the main theme of the Terminator 2 film soundtrack bear a strange resemblance to each other… (Not in the Dvorak and Russ Abbott league, but…)

PG pointed this out to me, calling it alternately “Taking motifs and making them work for you” and “shameless plagarism”.
