Woohoo!! One of my favorite series is back! Thanks for your work on this, Scott. :-)

Heck yeah! Love this series too, although it reminds me of another series you started a looooong time ago that you never finished - "My 100 Favorite Scores" or something like that - that I still to this day am waiting on you to wrap up. So what about it Scott? I have been enduring patiently for years for the last 25 or so of those scores. At least when I remember that you didn't finish it. Like I did today. smile

I just read on Film Music Reporter that it is Christopher Young, not Aaron Zigman, who is scoring the new Madea film, so I'll correct that immediately.

Be sure to include that in your #1 entry.

Thank you for the reminder. I am going to attempt to wrap up this year's Top Forty Countdown (a ten-part series this time) by the end of 2013 (wish me luck!), especially since I suspect I won't get around to doing one a year from now, so once that's done I'll make finishing One Hundred Favorite Scores a priority (sadly, the last few years of scores have been so weak that I don't have to worry about the list changing -- though I did get to see an early screening of The Book Thief and the Williams score is truly lovely, by far the best of 2013).

Great to see these again! Subjective as they are, and as depressing as it will be to see Remote Control in first place, they are always a good and well-researched read.

Incidentally, I noticed the unintentional doubling of a word in the Atticus Ross's entry: "inaugurate the desired franchise franchise."

Thanks for the franchise catch -- I'll try to fix that.

And don't be so sure about Remote Control being in first place. After all, there's this French dude that everyone seems to want to work with these days.

UPDATED: Just fixed the mistake. Though I suppose if someone made multiple sequels to the comedy Good Burger, that would be a franchise franchise.

Based on Jack the Giant Slayer, I expected Ottman to be lower than this!

He's still working with Bryan Singer, and that means he has at least one X-Men film coming up, possibly two.

By the way, I am working on parts two through ten(!) of this year's series, so don't assume I forgot about it just because it's been over a month since part one (though that would indeed be a plausible assumption).
