Hello fellow moviegoers!
One of the key elements to any film is the music. Music is to movies as seasoning is to food. If you put the wrong kind in it, it can ruin the entire thing, but if you get it just right, it can make it so much better! So today I will be telling you my Top 5 Favorite Movie Scores of all time. Keep in mind that these picks are my opinion and your lists may differ. Also, these are scores, not soundtracks, sorry no Frozen here! You should note that these are my top five FAVORITE, not best. You can find out the difference here!
5. THE HARRY POTTER SERIES
The score to the Harry Potter franchise, is just as magical as the movies themselves. It is composed by the insanely talented John Williams, and is one you will remember for the rest of your life. This score deserves to be on anybody's favorite movie scores!
4. JURASSIC PARK
This score, is one of those scores that will last throughout the ages. My friends and I often find ourselves having a sing-a-long to this score, once again by John Williams! The score to this film, captures your attention the second it hits your ears!
3. MAN OF STEEL
The score to Man of Steel is composed by one of the best composers of our time, Hans Zimmer. The score to this film truly encompasses the epic-ness and scale of this movie. You can't help but feel emotionally moved by the way this scores flows so fluently.
2. STAR WARS
The magnificent score to these history changing movies, is one of the best, if not the best movie scores of all time. Once again a score by John Williams, whenever I hear even a little bit of this score, I can't help but be whisked back to my childhood. This score and my #1 score are both interchangeable. My favorite really just depends on the day.
1. THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Like I said earlier, this and my #2 are both interchangeable. But you cannot deny how wonderful and fitting the score to the Lord of the Rings is. This score is one of those scores that whenever you hear it, it instantly sucks you back to Middle Earth and you feel like you are on an adventure with Frodo or Aragorn once again. Howard Shore did such a brilliant job on this score that I can't even fully describe my love for this music!
-PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN
-THE LONE RANGER (2013)
-THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY
