    Not really a "score" but I've always loved his theme/fanfare for the Olympic Games.

    I'm surprised only one person mentioned Home Alone.
    I picked E.T. I could have picked Indiana Jones but the music of E.T. really carries the film.

    That right there is probably my favorite film score, perhaps even more than star wars.

    Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but then i'd have to go with Indiana Jones.

    I voted for Potter. Just a fantastic score. Is it REALLY my favorite? I don't know. It's damn impactful on me though.

    Besides the obvious choices like Raiders, E.T or Jurassic Park, I think my favorite score would be The Patriot. Some might (correctly) say that it's derivative of some of his previous scores but I love it.

    Another underrated one is Far and Away.

    Indiana Jones by far, specifically Temple of Doom

    My favorites are Indy, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and Superman, besides that Schindler's list and The Adventure of Tintin.

    Saving Private Ryan-GEEZ I don't know if I can listen to that without getting emotionally choked up!

    Jurassic Park takes it for me, but that's because it's my favourite film of all time ever, by some distance so I am biased. I get goosebumps just humming the main JP theme to myself let alone actually hearing it played! Frankly I can't recall of the top of my head a Williams score that was ever a total dud - the odd track perhaps but even in less successful films his music tends to be outstanding.

    Indiana Jones is still my favorite Williams score , if not of all time, but his Home Alone score gives me nostalgic chills.

    I can't choose between Jurassic Park and Indy, specifically The Last Crusade. The Grail theme....just brilliant. There are a couple tracks in the Jaws soundtrack besides the classic theme that are catchy too.

    I don't like any of them as much as Star Wars, but Harry Potter had some beautiful tracks.

    Leaving Hogwarts, The Window to the Past, Christmas at Hogwarts. I love them.

    Indy's good too though, especially The Last Crusade. The Venice boat chase music is great, and the music where Henry Sr. takes down a plane with seagulls. And the Grail Theme is the best.

    I really enjoyed the recent Tintin movie, it very much evoked feelings of an Indiana Jones style movie in its plot, action and score. I didn't realise til yesterday that it was composed by John Williams :oops:I should have known!

    This man is the michael Jordan of movie scores but if I had to pick a favorite it's definitely TESB. Besides SW it's so tough but I'll have to give it to Indy Temple Of Doom I get lost in his music almost to where it distracts me, no words for his greatness.

    I would say that, other than Star Wars, my favorite is probably E.T.; however, I do also much love Indiana Jones and Lincoln.
