I was watching that film with harrison ford, clear and present danger, which was scored by james horner. I thought that a lot of this music sounded very similar to Aliens, and then I realised that he had lifted entire sequences from it for this film!

Actually, I hope that when James Cameron brings out his next films (they look sweeeeeeeeeeeet) that he'll get horner to score them. Those two are good together.

Star Trek II is the clear winner.

Also Cameron asked Horner to score Aliens like Star Trek II.

He has a distinctive style like all of the great scorers, and to be honest with the exception of John Williams (as Morricone and Barry are in retirement) he is the only true great left.

I personally think his score for Deep Impact is one of the most original and most beautiful soundtracks he's ever done.

His others are fantastic, but have also been duplicated in other scores (Braveheart/Titanic) (Aliens/Star Trek II) - for me Deep Impact is his most emotional and heartfelt score, especially 'Goodbye and Goodspeed'

Shame on me!!!

I've been listening to that score for year. I'll also add that the pop song he included with Hayley Westenra, it was really good.


Also add THE ROCKETEER!

I love his Titanic score, especially the suites that appear on his Back to Titanic album, although I have to admit to really loving his score to The Perfect Storm as well. Looking forward to his work on Avatar.

Ah, that was a tricky one. I love most of his scores, Krull used to be pretty high my list for quite some time.
But in the end (More music fromBraveheart gets my vote.

Mask of Zorro is one of Horner's best and more original in recent years imo - though its not listed ;)

Legends of the Fall wasn't bad either.

Went for Braveheart.  He's not one of my favourite composers, but occassionally he really nailed it.

Titanic for me,makes the movie.
Braveheart was classic in places but not as good overall.

One of the climactic cues from Aliens was used at the end of Die Hard - the bit where the terrorist who we thought was killed comes back and tries to shoot everyone.

Again another tough one, ovious choice would have been willow there have been a few times the power of nostalgia in that piece has made me cry.

But I went for Braveheart for the gael and the score sequence of the execution, that's beautifully sad stuff man

Can I just say this. James Horner is a whore. Having just watched Clear and Present Danger I heard at least two or three themes from his other films in this. And I'm not just talking about stuff that sounds similar to his other work, (like how John Williams them from AOTC sounds similar to Hook) I mean he is directly ripping himself off. At one point you can clearly hear the Aliens theme and later in the film one of the themes from The Wrath of Khan turns up (funny considering half the themes in Aliens are ripped from Khan). Seriously I know guy is well known for plagiarising himself but fucking hell! I mean who has listened to the Titanic score and not heard Braveheart in there.

I've written on this before I know but seriously I'm shocked no one has ever brought it up with the man himself, can't the guy come up with a new theme instead of just stealing from himself?

I picked Star Trek II though I really love the score for Commando too, even if it's just the 48 Hours score expanded.

Its a tie between Star Trek 2 and Krull for me.Classic works both of them.

Yeah I agree. Star Trek II is probably my favourite, but it's slightly jarring when you hear what he calls "Khan's Theme" in the video above in so many other movies in the last few decades, most recently Avatar I think.

I forgive him because of *batteries not included though

Even though I love Aliens I have to say that Star Trek II was his best score. I realised I did post on this topic way back! LOL

I know it's divided some people, but I really enjoyed his score for The Amazing Spider-man. Though his theme was better than Elfman's and I've been listening to the final track (Promises) over and over again. Really beautiful (even if he does recycled some classic Horner motiffs throughout).
