I have compiled a list. It features the number of films I have seen scored by any composer. I guess I have seen around 1400 films (features and TV films). Some composers I have searched out films by, like Sylvester Levay and Tangerine Dream for instance. That's why they are quite high on the list. They have scored films I wouldn't have seen if they hadn't scored them. Other composers (like Goldsmith for instance) are high on the list just because they scored lots of films in the 80s and 90s, the decades most represented in the "filmography".

Has any of you a list like this?

It looks like this:

Yes, I have a data base for all my scores. Here's just a few of the highlights. Interesting how my top three favorite composers rank neck and neck in my collection. (Williams, Goldsmith, Horner)

James Newton Howard 24
Hans Zimmer 27
Jerry Goldsmith 41
John Williams 46
James Horner 46

Seen too many movies to have any kind of overview of this.

But I'm sure John Williams is in the lead, as I've seen every single one of his films (in the 150s, I think). Even the films that have never been released.

I have compiled a list. It features the number of films I have seen scored by any composer. I guess I have seen around 1400 films (features and TV films).





You have never seen a film scored by Miklos Rozsa?

No. I prefer modern/contemporary cinema.

Go watch Time After Time. It's 1979, it's good (by a certain standard of good that I hold) and you can tick a box.

I don't even know how I would go about compiling a list like this. I tried making a list of all of the movies that I saw at one particular cinema (gone 20 years ago this month) and that was... not easy.

I find it hard to believe that anyone with even a modest interest in cinema and film music can go through life without being exposed, even if only on holiday season television, to a single film scored by Rozsa, Steiner, Tiomkin, Korngold or Waxman.
I can understand someone not liking the films and not wanting to listen to the music of course, but to avoid seeing any of them at some time or other must take exceptional determination.
Are you seriously saying you have never seen even one of, say: Casablanca, It's a Wonderful Life, King Kong, Gone With the Wind, Ben-Hur, Adventures of Robin Hood, Sunset Boulevard, Bride of Frankenstein, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Jungle Book?

Yes.

Have a nice day!
