I see you like kid stuff
Just because it's animated doesn't make it kiddy.
Well your avatar screams youngling
That sounds a lot like his Trek movie scores.
This was his first big movie I believe. I reckon he figured "No one will watch this as its a bit rubbish, but this score is ace. I'll just use it again... No-one will know". There is a track called 'Shad's pursuit' which really sounds like Khan.
Just about all of John Carpenter's themes. Getting to see him perform them live has been the highlight of my year (so far).
I've always particularly loved Ennio Morricone's opening theme for The Untouchables.
Danny Elfman's Batman theme.
Just seen Under the Skin and the music in that movie is phenomenal. You want nightmares while you're awake? This is for you.
Jaws!!! Love it!

A lot of animated films have great songs, especially Disney movies because they have so much money to spend
Jurassic Park 1 is another good one. Not just the iconic boom ahhs at the beginning but the frenzied action music afterwards too.
One of my favorites is the opening for the first Home Alone movie, also an underrated soundtrack from Williams. I love how it has almost a eerie feeling to it which you don't see in Christmas movie themes often.
spiderman 1,2,3 music. especially the theme song that opens the movies. absolutely beautiful score!
i also love the 'man of steel' theme song
I have to agree with Jurassic Park! One of the best film series!
Also, a massive fan of Ghostbusters, so that theme has to be a top one.
This could be a long list.
In no particular order:
Superman the Movie
Star Trek First Contact
The Magnificent Seven
The Last Starfighter
Gone With the Wind
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Out of Africa
The Pink Panther
Chariots of Fire
I could go on and on and on....
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. I can't think of another movie where I was so instantly engaged after only a couple of minutes, and the subtle and mysterious theme was a big part why.
Just to name a few.
Main Titles - The Rescuers Down Under
Olim - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Prophecy - The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
Main Titles - Spider-Man (2002)
Lily's Theme - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
I would argue Spider-man 2 is the last great super hero theme. Anything Hans Zimmer touches becomes garbage.
Every John Williams movie ever.
Probably for me, "This is Berk" and "Dragon Racing" from How to Train Your Dragon and How to Train Your Dragon 2.
Here's a list of some more opening scores that I enjoy
- The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
- The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
- The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
- Man of Steel
- The Avengers: Age of Ultron
- Thor: The Dark World
- The Avengers
- The Dark Knight
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
- Star Trek Into Darkness
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
All of the Lord of the Rings movies, whichever Hobbit movie uses Smaug's theme as the start (I think its Five Armies) and Beautiful Lie from BvS.
