My 20 favorite film composers
This list will not include musical soundtracks from documentaries (like Baraka), tv series (like Band Of Brothers) or films were the entire soundtrack are dialogue filled songs (like GoodFellas). Nor will it include films with a soundtrack created by a selection of previously composed pieces (like 2001: A Space Odyssey). This list is therefore a selection of my personal favorite movie scores, scores that are mostly originally written for the specific movie.
I will also only include one movie from each franchise, if the movie has a franchise, and the one I choose is my favorite from that franchise.
This list could be endless, and it is very hard to include the best movie soundtracks of all-time on a top 20, but here are my all time favorite movie soundtracks.
Notice how 9 of the 20 are created by John Williams, the greatest artist in the world.
This list is a list of my favorite movies, these are movies which are touching me very emotional or I enjoy watching several times, this is my personal opinion. A lot of the movies that has not made this list are movies I haven't seen, such as The Godfather, Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Lawrence Of Arabia, Pulp Fiction, Seven Samurai....
As you might notice most of the movies on my list are Steven Spielberg movies, that's because he's my favorite director of all time.
I haven't seen all Steven Spielberg movies, but the movies I haven't seen I can kind of predict where they are going on this list:
Empire Of The Sun (8/10)
A.I. Artificial Intelligence (7/10)
The Sugarland Express (7/10)
As soon as I have seen the movies above, the list will be updated.
This is a list of my personal favorite movie scores by my favorite composer, and who I think is the greatest artist of all time; John Williams
