Not spefically CG related but been listening to many soundtracks lately (just love em) and been wondering…
What is the best film scores of all time? We’ve had plenty of polls over the years for the best film - but how bout the music. Let’s get some nominations going and ultimately a poll in a few weeks.
Criteria: Impact, how memorable, how emotional, timeless, inspiration. (feel free to add)
Here’s my nominations.
John Wiliiams - Jaws, ET, Superman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List (the man has gotta be the film score king - Jaws is gotta be right up there - the two most famous notes in history - duh nuh, duh nuh - sing it with me!)
Ennio Morricone - The Mission, The Untouchables, The Good The Bad The Ugly (you know that famous Clint Eastwood whistling)
Danny Elfman - Men in Black, Good Will Hunting, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands (honoury mention for The Simpsons - gotta be the best TV theme of all time)
Bernard Herrman - Psycho, Vertigo
James Horner - Braveheart, Aliens
Alan Silvestri - Back to the Future, Predator
John Barry - 007 James Bond, Dances with Wolves
Randy Newman - Toy Story, Bug’s Life
Hans Zimmer - The Lion King, The Rock, Thelma & Louise, Crimson Tide, Gladiator
There’s so many - no doubt i’ve forgotten some gems. Would love to hear everyone’s opinions.
