    Ah ok. In that case, fuck him. You didn't see and/or like Braveheart? What are you, a communist?

    What a great tribute post! These are great movies with exceptional sound scores and every one I enjoyed. He will be sadly missed.

    I loved the movie Aliens so much when i was a kid, I was it 16 times in the theater and purchased the soundtrack from Horner. I would drive around my neighborhood blasting the tape...catching weird looks from everyone who overheard.

    Eww, with commercials? It's long, but definitely worth watching beginning to end. Uncut preferably.

    Except that, because of James Horner's talent, he gets a pass.

    Can you imagine if the news headline was tall, rich, white man wearing scarf dies in plane crash! The AGT interwebs fan sites would be going crazy.

    For a second there I read it as Mike Horner. Whew... close one. Don't know/care about this guy. I think I saw the Aliens movie back in the day, didn't make much of an impression on me as I remember nothing about it. Never saw the others mentioned.

    What's with all these entertainers and their planes? John Denver, Harrison Ford and now this guy.

    So my youth was sent into turmoil as he reused the same score in three movies that I watched constantly. Go back and watch Star Trek II, Alens, Krull (and one or two more) and the scores are identical. I will know try and forgive his laziness as he passes on.

    There's no disputing that he used many of the same cues in different movies. Most film composers do to a certain degree, that's nothing new. But it seemed like he did it way more often. But despite that, to me, it won't take away from some of the great themes he wrote. In my opinion, his music added a dynamic to movies in ways that only a handful of other composers like Williams and Goldsmith etc could do.

    I remember loving Uncommon Valor and then seven years later watching In Country and going "WTF...Heard this before..."
