James Cameron Remembers Working With James Horner

23 June 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Director James Cameron and the late composer James Horner worked together three times: on AliensTitanic, and most recently Avatar. In a THR as-told-to, Cameron says they "got off to a bad start." Horner had overbooked himself and completed the score for Aliens in a day and a half, leaving Cameron and his team to edit it. Still, Cameron wanted to work with Horner for Titanic and he "totally committed" this time around. It paid off, with Horner winning two Oscars for Best Original Score and Best Original Song. Before it went on to become the tune of the late '90s, Cameron remembers crying the first time he listened to Rose's theme.Cameron's last memory of Horner was also Titanic-related. Earlier in April, the orchestra at Royal Albert Hall played the entire score live to the movie. "It was emotional and I'm glad that was my last personal memory of James, »

Does James Horner's 'Titanic' music make you cry?'

23 June 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

If "Titanic" is the greatest movie ever made – and, arguably, it is, based upon box office (more than $2 billion worldwide) and Oscars tally (11, tying the record) – much of the credit is due to James Horner's transcendent music. -Break- Yes, James Horner's underscore is unabashedly sentimental, but that's the genius of it. The music grabs film-goers by the throbbing heart and steers them emotionally throughout the watery ordeal of Rose and Jack on that doomed boat. At movie's end, as the credits roll, the melody is infused in our soul just as Celine Dion gives it added life and meaning with haunting lyrics as she sings – "Near, far, wherever you are ... I believe that the heart does go on." R.I.P., James Horner -- Read the comments in Gold Derby's forums Lots of people hate the song, of course, but those are people, I argue, who have a stone in their chest wher. »

Punch It, Bishop: A tribute to James Horner's iconic 'Aliens' score

23 June 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was in middle school, I had a copy of "Aliens" on VHS -- not an official VHS, mind you, but a shabby taped copy of an edited TV airing with all the cursing taken out. Didn't matter. I knew it was a masterpiece. In addition to Sigourney Weaver's legendary, Oscar-nominated performance and James Cameron's brilliant direction, one major element kept me coming back again and again: James Horner's thrilling, indelible score. As we previously reported, Horner is feared to have died in the crash of his single-engine plane near Santa Barbara, California on Monday, and it's first and foremost a huge loss for his loved ones, most importantly his wife Sarah and two daughters. It's also a loss, no doubt, for filmgoers. In addition to his "Aliens" score -- which brought him the first of a total of ten Oscar nominations -- Horner composed the »

James Horner obituary

Oscar-winning film music composer best known for Titanic

James Horner, who has died aged 61 in a plane crash in California, was one of the most successful and admired composers of film soundtracks in Hollywood. He wrote music for more than 100 films, and his extensive list of awards included two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes, as well as 10 Oscar nominations, seven nominations for Golden Globes and three for Bafta awards.

Horner’s music was an integral part of some of the most successful films of recent decades. His score for James Cameron’s Titanic (1997) won an Oscar for best original dramatic score, and he also won best original song for My Heart Will Go On, the love theme from Titanic, which was co-written with Will Jennings and sung by Celine Dion. It became a huge hit in its own right, selling 15m copies. The recording of Horner’s Titanic score also sold 27m copies. »

Remembering Oscar-Winning Film Composer James Horner

23 June 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

I sensed early on with "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" that James Horner was going to become the finest film composer of his generation. He boldly seized the Jerry Goldsmith mantle head on and made it his own. Now, after his tragic plane crash near Santa Barbara Monday morning, I can proclaim it online: His scores were epic, intimate and emotionally and spiritually transcendent. And he was prolific, scoring more than 100 movies since the late '70s, highlighted by "Titanic" (for which he received two Oscars for score and the blockbuster hit song with Celine Dion, "My Heart Will Go On," co-written by Will Jennings), "Avatar," Braveheart," "Apollo 13," "Aliens, "A Beautiful Mind," "Field of Dreams," "Glory," "Brainstorm" and  "Cocoon." But there were also such gems as "Something Wicked This Way Comes," "The Dresser," »

Rip James Horner: The Late Composer on The Rocketeer

23 June 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

We’re saddened to learn of the death of composer James Horner, whose well-known film scores include the highest-selling orchestral score of all time (Titanic), and a bevy of other beloved titles. In this interesting clip, Horner talks about writing the score for The Rocketeer — some 100 minutes altogether — in just two and a half weeks’ time. As he discusses, the film was originally cut with temp music, leading executives to feel that certain scenes were too long and needed to be cut to shreds; with his score added, scenes played better and could be restored to their original, necessary […] »

Composer James Horner (Titanic, Braveheart) Dies in Plane Crash

23 June 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Composer James Horner Dies in Plane Crash. James Horner died on Monday in a plane crash near Santa Barbara, California. In case there’s any doubt or urge to be skeptical here, his death was confirmed by his assistant Sylvia Patrycja. He was 61 years old.

In a public Facebook post, Patrycja states,

“We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent. He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Horner was piloting a small personal airplane into an area 60 miles north of Santa Barbara. The loss of James Horner is incredibly unexpected, as he has been a prolific genius for decades now, and we’ve probably taken him for granted all this time.

A composer with over 150 credits to his name, brought us everything from the music for Titanic’s Oscar-winning tune “My Heart Will Go On” to childhood favourites like An American Tail’s “Somewhere Out There.”  It’s hard to narrow down a such a storied career into a top 5 or top 10 list of film scores because his music touched so many movies and genres.

23 June 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It was with great sadness that we learned yesterday of the death of composer James Horner at just 61 years old. Horner died in a plane crash, piloting a small aircraft that went down a day ago in California.
