Riding down the mountain on the sled in "Willow". It's been so long since I've seen the film, I can't comment on other scenes.


"Stealing the Enterprise" in "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock", specifically when the Enterprise backs out of the Starbase, up to the end of the cue. Perfect combination of music and on-screen action.


"Something Wicked This Way Comes", the scene from the beginning of the film when Will and Jim (maybe it was just Jim) running into town, passing by people like the barber.


"Titanic". Most of "Hard to Starboard", including the slow, dreamy beginning, and the dread when the ice berg is spotted. Continuing in the cue when the ship swipes the ice berg, and the repeating two notes from the trumpet, almost like a continuous "Ut oh. Ut oh. Ut oh."
I think the other was "Southampton"; when the Titanic is loading passengers, and Horner is in full copy mode of Enya's "Book of Stars", and we see Rose get out of the car, lifting her head. And the Titanic leaving port.


"Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan". Scenes like:
The whole leaving the moorings scene, including Sulu putting the ship in full impulse and it moving away from us.
And when the phasers cut into the Enterprise, blowing into Engineering.

Even though I've soured over Horner decades ago, these early efforts were great rousing music in spite of and perhaps because of the pillfering.

I don't know if I would call an 'end credits' roll a SCENE.

Very understated but the Library scene between Mr Dark and Mr Halloway in SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. The music just absolutely MAKES this brilliantly played scene!

Can't really mention one specific scene, but much of BRAVEHEART is carried almost solely by the music. The lengthy scenes of courtship, the moments of grief in which there is often no dialogue but just a shot of a trembling hand or a look on the faces of people - all those scenes are helped tremendously by Horner's music. It's sometimes breathtakingly beautiful.

I have to say that I've really gone off Horner, so I'm hardly a fan, but I still maintain that BRAVEHEART is one of the finest scores of the past 25 years.

Aye Kev, but ah'm no wan o' they yins that go aroon' flashin' their hairy erses at the English baistirds. Ah'm no really wan o' they jingoistic "Wha's Like Us" gang that go aroon' sayin' yer country's the best, jist because that's an accident o' birth, an' if yer ma' n' pa' hudnae hud a shag in Scoatlin' well ye micht 'uv bin born in Timbuctoo.

LEGENDS OF THE FALL is great too, but I'm not a one-eyed old whisky-swiggin' Welsh-Irish- American windbag (well, I haven't got one eye, nor am I Welsh-Irish-American), and I don't go around wrestling bears in the woods.

ALIENS is brilliant too, but I'm not an alien. THE LAND BEFORE TIME is lovely, but I'm neither a dinosaur nor a cartoon. So yer theory's a bit aff there, Kev, ye f'ckin Scouse wanka!

There's quite a bit, so I don't think I could choose. But I would be partial to something from "Testament".
