Not only is het the "Father" of the rest of the list, the others all point to him for inspiration.
Is there a soundtrack that can compare with "El Cid". No, no and no! the absolute best.V 1 Comment
God of music
Listen to ilayaraja's bgm' s..t hen you guys decide who is the king of kings...
31? Surely he should be higher! He has the most beautiful music I have ever listened to. He composed for all the transformer movies, as well as others like Battleship, and Ninja Turtles. I love his work.
"Autobots", "Arrival to Heart" and "My Name is Lincoln" make him great!
Korngold literally invented the 'Hollywood' sound. Even though he wasn't the most prolific of film composers, he easily is the giant that all other film composers stand upon. Also, his film music has the rare ability to work outside of the concert hall WITHOUT any sort of editing, unlike most all film composers other than John Williams (like Star Wars? Look up King's Row by Korngold; you'll notice something vaguely similar).
Korngold wrote with integrity, worked very hard and had an outstanding natural ability. It is seriously sad to see someone like Zimmer so high up - he barely does anything compared to the rest of the team that works for him and his ideas are vacuous. Studios - please, please give more liberty to the composer and allow this artform to mature from the cheap formulae which presently choke it
It was once said of Korngold that had he not gone into film composition he would be wildly considered today as one of the greatest composers of his time. Listen to the soundtrack of The Adventures of Robin Hood. It is phenomenal!
Patrick Doyle is awesome. He definitely makes 4th on my list
Remember Harry Potter 4 and the Thor Soundtrack.
He just needs more good requests
One epic composer, for some reason he reminds me of Two Steps from Hell, his music just drives the films like the Pacific Rim theme, gets me right in the moment
He is a great composer and well-known one.Game of throne, clash of titans, iron man aren't these enough to be amongst the top 20. It is a pity of course when I didn't saw his name on this list.
He's a genius! Come on, guys! He is the modern Williams! Don't forget his "Up", "Star Trek" and "LOST" soundtracks!
The ratatouille soundtrack is just amazing, much people ignores it, In the top ten I thinkV 2 Comments
What a shame, I was hoping top 30, I love this guy so much and his attitude and outlook is just amazing but there are too many people that I have told people about Murray Gold that just don't recognize the name and it's a real shame, some of the scores from Doctor Who are just thrilling and remembering, I particularly enjoy "Scarecrows go to War" and "Martha's Theme"
He has written some truly, truly, beautiful music. Stuff that would put him up there with the likes of John Williams if he wasn't so overlooked. Give the Doctor Who soundtrack a try. I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised by how amazing it is.
Hooper is brilliant. I can't believe he's not up in 5th position where I wanted him.
No words..Just hear apocalypse score..
Why is the composer of "He's a Pirate," "Will and Elizabeth," and more amazing Pirates of the Caribbean songs not on this list?
Whoops. Don't vote for him. Hans Zimmer actually played a huge role in the first soundtrack.
Mad Max Fury Road: The bombastic Brothers in Arms soundtrack.
Loved what he did with Wreck-It Ralph!
The man responsible for one of the most terrifying and iconic Horror movie scores of all time (The Evil Dead) and all its sequels (Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness) Plus his work on The TNT franchise The Librarian (The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, Return to King Solomon's Mines and Curse of the Judas Chalice) And let's not forget his fantastic work in the realm of Television score as well. (Hercules, Xena, Spartacus, The Librarians, Ash Vs Evil Dead) just to name a few. How Mr. LoDuca wasn't even in this list yet amazes me.
It's a crime he's not higher on this list. Vote people!
All of the Rocky movies & Karate Kid's (those two franchises alone should equal a top 20 ranking), James Bond, The Right Stuff, Masters of the Universe, Thomas Crown affair, and many more...
He killed it in the 80's and should be way higher on the list, without question. - expertCritic
