Best Movie Score Composers


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Nicholas Hooper

Hooper is brilliant. I can't believe he's not up in 5th position where I wanted him.

62 Dimitri Tiomkin
63 Elliot Goldenthal
64 Lalo Schifrin

One of the few composers I know well, because (a) He's composed a lot of movies (and some T.V.) I love and (b) I love his style.

65 Quincy Jones Quincy Jones Quincy Delightt Jones, Jr. is an American record producer, conductor, arranger, composer, musician, television producer, film producer, instrumentalist, magazine founder, entertainment company executive, and humanitarian.

He should be way higher on this list.

66 Dominic Frontiere
67 Nobuo Uematsu Nobuo Uematsu Nobuo Uematsu is a Japanese video game composer, best known for scoring the majority of titles in the Final Fantasy series.
68 Joseph LoDuca

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.
