10Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

The Contenders

11Schindler's List

When it comes to a film like this, it is difficult for a composer to do it justice and make the score as heart-wrenching as the film itself. John Williams did so with grace.

Most emotional, incredibly written music of all time... only John Williams. - everton96
