Best:

This is impossible to choose, I may choose Harry Potter, because I think the first 40 minutes in the first movie recording sessions are enough to tell the story without pictures at all. I think even better than Star Wars and Spielberg’s. But I’m choosing a song from the third HP movie. I think this represents what JW is capable of. He is not tied to a single style. Instead he’s able to deliver quite complex scores in a wide variety of styles and this cue shows it

Worst:

Very very difficult. I’m choosing randomly this because is too simple hahaha

A best is DAMN hard to choose, but I’d have to go with:

The movie is “ok” to me. Williams, as he’s done more than once, elevated this film to a whole other level than it probably deserved by his amazing score. Elliot’s screeching voice always ruins it for me with that nails on a chalkboard tonality lol. Musically though, holy shit...just a masterpiece!

The WORST (and to be fair, it may not be all his fault...because this shows creater had a super retarded vision for the theme...writing the lyrics for this faux-calypso horror you’re about to hear) is the original Gilligans Island theme. I can’t recall offhand if it even aired, because before it became the show people remember some of the cast/characters were changed.

It’s definitely good for a laugh, though!

Edit: just realized it was supposed to be best and worst movies...I’m gonna keep this up anyways, even though my “worst” is from TV. It’s just too bad lol.
