The Contenders: Page 4

61 Tom Holkenborg

Mad Max Fury Road: The bombastic Brothers in Arms soundtrack.

62 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.

70 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.
