I'm still working on wrapping mine up, but #2 and #1 most assuredly are Signs and The Village respectively. Can anyone name their top ten, or at least top five, favorite JNH scores? I'm looking to see first if there are similar opinions about his works, and then secondly to discover scores of his I might not have heard yet. Looking forward to your rankings!
Wyatt Earp and Restoration are my favorites by some distance. I couldn't name another eight that particularly stand out over his others. For me, his scores always seem consistently solid, without ever being much more than that. They nearly all seem to hover around the same level in my ratings.
Agreed. DAVE is my favorite JNH by a mile. Great melodies, a beautiful orchestral sound, the warm, romantic mood of it all - it may strike some as just 'feel-good' music, but when I listen to it, I genuinely feel good.
I can't do a very good list, but Signs is definitely my favorite. Others I really like: Unbreakable, Dinosaur, Salt, The Hunger Games, King Kong, and Lady in the Water. I have a whole lot of JNH music, but those are the onese that have warranted multiple listens at this point. People tell me I should love The Last Airbender, but it didn't grip me on the first listen. I plan on giving that one another shot when I have time to spend actually focusing.
1 - I Am Legend (possibly my favorite of his) 2 - Lady In The Water. 3 - Vertical Limit (this one make me discover JNH's music for first time) 4 - King Kong 5 - The Hunger Games 6 - The Happening 7 - Charlie Wilson's War 8 - Salt 9 - Signs 10 - Dante's Peak (though he wrote very few cues for that one)
