Favourite composer?
« on: March 24, 2012, 01:42:50 PM »
When I see a movie, I don't just watch it. I listen to it!
I like listening to soundtracks from good movies.

My favourite composer is Hans Zimmer http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001877/. He made the music for
 - Pirates of the Caribbean 2, 3 and 4
 - Lion King
 - Madagascar
 - Inception
 - The holiday
 - The dark knight
 - Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
and of course a lot of other fantastic movies :)

James Horner http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000035/ is a very good composer too!
He made the music for:
 - Titanic
 - Avatar
 - Zorro
and others..

If you like I can recomment tracks from each movies :) I have my favorites :)

 - Rose :)

For orchestral composers it's John Williams all the way. Made the music for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park and a hell of a lot more.

Hmm... As far as film composers go, Ennio Morricone, Nobuo Uematsu, Edward Shearmur, Klaus Doldinger, Mark Snow and a couple of others are worth a mention in my book.

Zimmer is very competent as well, but doesn't quite make my kind of music.

He doesn't compose for movies, just songs.

Hans Zimmer, hands down.

She does. I don't.

(As stated, however, I find nothing at all wrong with the quality of the music he writes, but just like I would not buy a Subaru in spite of its quality, I would not listen to Zimmer outside a movie.)
