Some of the greatest movies of all time have risen and fallen off the back of their music. Some films are watched purely for their music and sound, such is its quality. If you considered yourself to be a cinephile, check out some of these amazing film scores.
Star Wars, John Williams
Let’s face it, the Star Wars main theme is iconic. The product of one of cinema’s most treasured film composers, John Williams’ score were a big part of Star Wars’ success, along with its innovative technical effects. Williams also composed the main theme for Stephen Spielberg’s “Jaws” – simply iconic.
The Godfather, Nino Rota
The Godfather is arguably the greatest film ever made (and its sequel isn’t too far behind either). Marlon Brando’s performance is sublime; however, there’s no denying that Nino Rota’s moving score makes the film.
The Dark Knight, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard
The Dark Knight isn’t just a great superhero film, it’s a great film in general. While Ledger’s performance as the Joker captivated audiences and mesmerised a generation, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard’s dark and sinister score perfectly captures the essence of the film.
