1. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

2. Star Wars - Episode V : The Empire Strikes Back

3. Star Wars - Episode IV : A New Hope

4. Close Encounter of the Third Kind

5. Jaws

6. Superman

7. Raiders of the Lost Ark

8. Schindler's List

9. A.I. - Artificial Intelligence

10. Hook

The top 8 in that list are trully the concensus imho. It's impossible to omit any of them. They are also the most popular and known John Williams scores (perhaps only ommiting Jurassic Park). None can hate one of those 8 scores, but some may "prefer" other scores. :mrgreen:

Can we count his 1984, 1996 Olympic Themes? Or the NBC Mission Theme...Those would certainly make it.

for that guest above:

You forgot Empire of the Sun.

Despite that mistake, very good list, amangino.

Now, try to do it again, but this time, please, register and login. It's one of the rules of this Top 10: you must be a member of jwfan.net

:mrgreen: If not, your list won't be added to the consensus Top 10.

5. STAR WARS

6. CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND

Well, i suffered lefting so good scores behind in the selection, but i'll make a brief hearing to them now for recompensating the offense :)

Otra cosa, aún no estoy seguro de si se debe hablar sólo en inglés o si se puede utilizar (sin perjuicio para los usuarios) también el castellano. De cualquier forma, un saludo para todos. Hi to everybody!

P.D.: I read the FAQ but i'm still a bit lost about the permission of avatars in this forum. :? Who i have to contact to ask for permission? thanks

Welcome you both too :)

Ricard dijo una vez que si quieres, puedes hablar en castellano (o en cualquier otro idioma, me imagino), siempre que sigas las reglas (que deberías leer) y no ofendas a nadie con tu vocabulario. Aunque normalmente -y comunmente- se utiliza el inglés.

What do you mean with "permission" for the avatar? Your avatar can be almost whatever you want. (remember: maximum of 80 x 100 pixels, and less than 8 KB)

scissorhands - still amazed for cmiyc, and for all these new members that have posted their own Top 10, presumably due to Ricard's announcement in the main page of the site

Born on the Fourth of July

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

The Empire Strikes Back

E.T.

Far and Away

Jaws

Jaws 2

The Fury

Schindler's List

Superman

Is this list counting up or down? I remember you saying how much you loved Superman and the other day I thought you said you preferred Jaws 2 over the original, leading me to think Superman is #1 while Born on the 4th of July is #10.
