Top Ten Film Score Votes

My votes for the Top Ten Film Scores/Musicals as compiled by David Smith (letterboxd.com/dn_smith86/list/poll-top-50-film-scores-musicals-of-letterboxd/). The only problem is choosing just ten....

I have notes for each of the ranked movies.

Honorable mentions are arranged by composer because I'm sort of a nerd like that:
- John Williams:
The Indiana Jones franchise (exclusive of Crystal Skull, because that shouldn't have happened)
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Empire of the Sun
Schindler's List
ET
Jaws
1941 (the march! best thing since Sousa)
Harry Potter
- Ennio Morricone:
Cinema Paradiso
Once Upon a Time in the West (and all his other Leone films)
Days of Heaven
- John Barry:
Out of Africa
Dances With Wolves
Multiple James Bond movies
- Dario Marianelli:
Pride and Prejudice
Jane Eyre
Atonement
- Phillip Glass:
The Hours
The Qatsi Trilogy
- Patrick Doyle:
Henry V (Branagh)
Sense and Sensibility
- Michel Legrand
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
- Monty Normal
The James Bond Theme (Dr. No)
