- WreckMe - 's rating:


 

*Schindler's List - The main theme is one of the most beautiful and saddest - and of course the best - pieces of score music (and definitely the best work John Williams has ever composed), but the whole score isn't just good enough to add.

*Jurassic Park - Again, the main theme everybody recognizes is just great composition, but entire score isn't special.

*Indiana Jones and Star Wars themes are also classics, good and everything, but John Williams apparently isn't capable to compose a complete masterpieces.

Well, there's a lot of Morricone, this list really deserves my vote :)
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Jul 14 9:04
Ah yes, this list certainly couldn't be taken seriously without The Godfather films on it :) Nice job! Elfman deserves any praise and attention he gets too!

Dunno if it's your style, but the score for Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ is always one that has jumped out at me. Peter Gabriel did most (all?) of it and it's pretty fantastic!

Awesome! You get my vote!
