It just came to me that I have the hardest time deciding which score/movie out of these I like the most... Well? What do you think?

Okay, got it:

Score: Hook

Movie: CE3K

At least for now.

Score: Superman

Movie: Hook (being as I'm a child of the 90's and seeing Hook many times on VHS)

Score: Close Encounters, no doubts there.

Film: Superman. It just has too much charm that none of the two Spielberg movies can match.

Its Williams' Magnum Opus, IMBO.

Yes, it is, definitely.

If you are talking about HOOK, of course. :P

Stop embarrassing yourself!

You can argue in favor of Superman without bashing Hook, you know. Unless, you really feel that way about Hook...

I do, because obviously they are all 3 masterpieces!

But now I've made up my mind. :)

DOn't believe me?

listen to Ultimate War 3, the fanfare when Hook says: "What would the world be like.." and tell me that doesnt sound like a shortened/alternate version of when kevin goes down the stairs on the sled!

Easy. CE3K > Hook > Superman.

Pretty much, on both counts. It's not even close, IMHO

Both votes for Close Encounters.

I wish I could say it's close. But it isn't. It's miles ahead of Superman. And Hook finishes last.

Superman and Close Encounters are perfection, John Williams at his greatest. But I voted for Hook because it has a childlike innocence and magic that really connects to me more than the other two scores. But it's a little like picking a favorite child....you love them all....well, except for Jimmy.....get back in the closet, Jimmy!!!! Ahem...where was I.....right. Hook is magical.

For film.....I want to watch them all back to back to decide, but Superman may be the one.

I don't know...this is a real tough poll.. Close Encounters is a great score, but it doesn't really come to the quality of Hook and Superman for me. And if I had to choose, I guess I'd put Superman on top, followed by Hook and then CE3K. All of them being great scores. Superman is just up the extra mile of JW awesomeness.

As for the films, CE3K is easily miles ahead of the other two...

I am glad that the majority seems to feel the same way as I do! :lol:

Movie: CE3K

Score: Hook

Score: Hook (you cannot go wrong with any of them though; we're talking Williams' top-tier stuff here)

Movie: Close Encounters

But yeah, I agree, you cannot go wrong with any of Williams's stuff here! :thumbup:

It's obvious: "CE3K" on both counts. Er...why are we having this conversation?

Superman on both. If this were "best" I'd pick CE3K over Superman for movie. Hook is last in both categories.

Hook score is nice, but not THIS nice. Both Superman and CEOTTK are legends (films and scores)!

What a neck on neck race!

The correct euphemism is "neck and neck." Said quickly, itis "neck'n'neck," which could indicate your confusion.

Neck on neck is something I do in the bedroom.

Thanks, I know! That happens when you type too fast, while at work...

It's just one of those classic JWFan polls...either way, you win.

Seems like, after 47 people have cast their votes, CE3K is the winner on both counts!

Am I the only one who hasn't participated in this poll due to the fact I can't make sense of Hook's inclusion in it?
