That’s Henry and Baloo   https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-43666657

So, a top 4, chronologically:   The Fury The Accidental Tourist Sleepers Memoirs of a Geisha   To bad JW has only scored 2 non-Spielberg, non-series scores in the la

Unranked, just in release order

  1. The Cowboys
  2. Images
  3. The Fury
  4. Dracula
  5. The River
  6. SpaceCamp
  7. The WItches of Eastwick
  8. JFK
  9. Far and Away
  10. Memoirs of a Geisha

 

 

 

 

Incidentally, Witches of Eastwick, BO4J, JFK, Patriot, and Geisha easily won in this similar thread

Good question actually, it's for me a great possibility to mention the ones waiting in the Top 20 area...

 

1. Memoirs of Geisha

2. How to Steal a Million

3. The Witches of Eastwick

4. Nixon

5. The Towering Inferno

 

Just noticed that I actually picked one per decades

For sure we have:

1. The Book Thief

2. Jane Eyre

3. Far And Away

4. The Cowboys

As for #5, it is an agonizing decision

right now it is Nixon.

My 5 choices:

 

Nixon

All of them would probably make my top 10 overall regardless.

Dracula

Heartbeeps

SpaceCamp

The River

 

Honorable Mention: The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing (This one gets no love, but I sure do enjoy it, along with Missouri Breaks)

I am ridiculously unfamiliar with most of his non-Spielberg/-series film scores. I almost wanted to include his NBC News or Olympics packages in here, but they might actually qualify as series.

 

Edit: I'm listening to Sleepers right now, a movie I've never seen nor score I've heard. I might need to modify my list.

One of his very best -- it sits JUST outside my alltime top 10 JW. And both film and score are criminally underrated.

I think people who put up "honourable mentions" and more titles than 10 need to be disqualified somehow. ;)

I saw the film ages ago but didn't notice the score.

CINEMAGIG started playing it recently and I was knocked out!

Now part of my collection!

Yeah, I know. I didn't put up any honourable mentions in the top thread, but I obviously struggled with a great many candidates for the last couple of spots before I posted my honourable mentions-free list.

I'm thinking more about the "empty" years where he didn't take any scoring assignment: 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2014, 2018...
