Restoration is also a favorite:


Oops, somehow overlooked that... super elegant score, no doubt!

I really like Atlantis and Hidalgo and Peter Pan. There are some beautiful full orchestral things there. I do not know his full body of work enough to pick a top list.

A Perfect Murder tends not to be a particularly popularJNH score but I like the eerie feel of much of it and the use of female voice,albeit, I think, synthesiized, and percussion on a number of tracks. Tense and atmospheric. JNH keeps it interesting with a variety of orchestral colours. It works for me.

I think he overloaded with the busy electronics when it wasn't completely necessary.

To the guy who put Intersection on his Top 10, good job. That's a nice little score.

He is one of my favorite current composers although I haven't been knocked over by some of his scores during the past 5 years or so. I hope he returns to some of his marvelous thematic scores.

Like Ravi and Kev, I think "The Egg Travels" is one of the finest cues ever composed for a film. I just love it and his other themes so number one for me is:

Dinosaur.

Sorry to see only DMD and I like or love Dying Young. That score is just plain gorgeous!

Two other gorgeous scores are Prince Of Tides and Pretty Woman.

I also like his action scores like: Hidalgo, Waterworld, King Kong and The Postman.

To round out to 10, I'll add Blood Diamond and The Village.
