John Williams movie scores appretiation thread

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Superman, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park (I actually played that theme in orchestra, it was awesome), Jaws, etc. etc. etc.

These movies wouldn't be the same without his music...and they're some of the most famous themes, anyone can hear just one bar and know exactly what it is.

Appreciate

(I dont' know if this should be here in ZC or if it should go to B&C, but I'm concentrating on his music and movies, so whatever )

Serious John Williams appreciation ova here.

Especially with the Jurassic Park theme. Pure genius. Although now it just reminds me of the Jurassic Park ride at Islands of Adventure more than the movie itself.
Hedwig's Theme is another stroke of genius.

Gooot it.


To me the only redeeming thing about Superman Returns was that they kept the theme.

OK, so, the theme music and that moment from Kevin Spacey were the only things that redeemed it

John Williams kicks ass. He's gotten a little repetitive recently----I can hear bits of the Star Wars prequels' soundtracks and HP:Sorceror's Stone in each other. However, they're all phenomenal. I love big movies where the music is as important a part of the film as the other components----and John Williams is a master of that.

John Williams is a genius. He's perfect for the action genre.

But my favorite is James Horner. Listen to the soundtrack for Glory. Moves me to tears every time. He also wrote Titanic and Braveheart, to name a few.
