The theme from Superman was not that iconic in my opinion. Any of the runner-ups and a few others are definitely better than that.

The pirates of the Caribbean music was taken from a part of gladiator or vice versa I don't exactly remember that's why he didn't mention I think

NO Top Gun in the list?

Batman, Godfather, and Back to the Future shouldn't even be on this list. I just now listened to them in the list and still can't even recall what the melodies were. I couldn't even recognize any strong melodies while listening to them in the list. Gone with the Wind, Harry Potter, 2001, Wizard of Oz, and Pink Panther should easily be considered instead.

peter papadimitriou (19 days ago)
No doubt that star wars would have been number one wish that back to the future would have been closer to the middle
joao rosendo (19 days ago)
From my own subjective preference, Vangelis from The Mission and Blade Runner could have made the list. My favorite is from Conan the Barbarian though. But you could have a list just for John Williams, Ennio Morricone and Hans Zimmer individually, they all merit it.

Jaws, Star Wars, Superman, Indiana Jones, ET, Home Alone, Jurassic Park; let's face it there is no movie score composer better than John Williams. He's the best ever, end of story.

Again Ennio was sidelined to lower order.. I agree John, Alan r brilliant.. But Ennio is genius, It's still a scar on Oscar for not recognising him for Dollar series..

Pirates of the Caribbean, Jaws and Avengers are the defining scores of 2000s. Shame you guys didn't even mention them.

Guess we just not gonna talk about the Robocop theme
AM or FM? (1 month ago)
Space odyssey? I know the songs used aren’t original but they’re iconic for space movies!
Stephen Job (1 month ago)
Incredibles? Avengers? Pirates of The Caribbean? Hedwig's Theme? (Harry Potter) They should have been on the list, and Jaws should have been in the top ten, not an honorable mention.
BegUltra (1 month ago)
Oh God, please tell me I'm dreaming.... they DIDN'T include the Terminator theme ???????? That's the best freaking movr theme ever made !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Connor Shirshac (1 month ago)
Um, Gone with the Wind?
Ammar Zair (1 month ago)
The Avengers theme has to be on this list!!!
doubleddrummer (1 month ago)
Love John Williams, hes my favorite, but there should have been Bernard Herrmann's Psycho or Vertigo Theme, and Enrico Merricone's Western theme for Good bad and the ugly. Some people are confusing scores that have full on orchestra arrangements with just themes that only have catchy songs with modern instruments. Thats why this list isn't bad but just missing a few geniuses.

Where’s Halloween?
Dewa Kawauchi (1 month ago)
Should've add more cause there's alot of great soundtracks and can't be justify if it's only 10, also put these titles : Spiderman 2002 Pirates of the Caribbean Inception Halloween (this will be updated by time and feel free to give some suggestions)

Batman but no pirates of the Caribbean? What were you thinking?
Anna Chase (1 month ago)
@Ben Andy W. I think that John Williams is one of the best composers in the world. Could we agree that both should be an honorable mention?
Ben Andy W. (1 month ago)
@Anna Chase So what? Only teenager's opinion matters? I'm still 21 y.o. but I agree with this list not because I live with them, in fact mostly I haven't even born when those movies released back then. I agree because I realize how good it is actually even when compared with recent movie scores, even mostly modern composer would be agree with this list. I mean Come on, only some retarded would dare to say that John Williams don't deserve a lot in here.
Anna Chase (1 month ago)
@Ben Andy W. yes old people
Ben Andy W. (1 month ago)
@Anna Chase It IS one of the most iconic score but still didn't deserve those positions. Eventhough your opinion said that 1980s Batman's score is not memorable, I'm pretty sure that mostly people that living their life with cinemas would disagree with you.
Anna Chase (1 month ago)
@Ben Andy W. it's one of the most iconic movie themes ever. I still don't recognize batman's theme when I hear it.

No braveheart?, no gladiator?
whoopthereitis (1 month ago)
The fact that Godzilla isn’t even an honorable mention to me is a crime. Truly one of the best themes.
CN 9 (1 month ago)
How can you ignore "last of the Mohicans". For myself it is the best one followed by "god father" and "the good bad and ugly" in number 2 and 3 respectively.
