List your favorite JNH/MNS Scores in order
« on: September 20, 2007, 10:44:09 AM »
After reading the similar thread about putting the films in order, I figured a thread about putting the scores in order would be just as fun.  ;D

1. The Village (hands down my favorite)
2. Lady in the Water (practically a tie with Signs)
3. Signs (the score that really made me notice film music)
4. Unbreakable (I love how JNH created 2 different worlds)
5. The Sixth Sense (under-rated, but under-used in the film)

but most of them pick themselves up
and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

1. Signs (Had me at the edge of my seat!)  :o
2. The Village (Fantastic music to a o.k movie)  :-\
3. Lady in the Water (Best part of this otherwise o.k film)  :-[
4. Unbreakable (Very gripping)  ;D
5. The Sixth Sense (Great, but very subtle so I hardly noticed it)  :)

gah, they are all so good for what they stand for thats its hard to compare. I almost want to put Lady in the Water, The Village and Signs as a tie for first.

The Village
Lady in the Water (although its my favorite m night film)
Signs (even though I think Hand of Fate is the best thing Howard has ever done)
Unbreakable
The Sixth Sense

1. The Village - like the film, has its imperfections but the amazing moments more than make up for it.
2. Unbreakable - just... so cool. I love the beat, its voice, everything in it that speaks of a destiny being fulfilled.
3. Signs - the most exciting of all the soundtracks, just like the film itself.
4. Lady in the Water - beautiful and exhilarating music, probably equal to Signs in many respects.
5. The Sixth Sense - fine score, but short. All the other soundtracks seem to have a touch of the Sixth Sense in them too.

The hardest one for me was placing Lady in the Water above Signs.

I think in the movie, the score to Signs is more effective. However, on CD, Lady in the Water is more enjoyable.

1.The Village

2.Lady in the Water

3.Signs


4.Unbreakable

5.The Sixthe Sense

The top 3 were very difficult, but The Village is just such a unique sound to me that I had to go up top with it.

Yea, I agree with you okokokok, I still think The Village should have won the Academy Award for best movie score, still, it did get nominated.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

Good point there Malcome.  Its very true.

I am going to have to try and pick then.  Ok, here goes.

1) The Sixth Sense  (it is such a short soundtrack, but so powerful!)

2) Lady in the Water  (beautiful, just beautiful!)

3) The Village (The strings are amazing!)

4) Unbreakable (what can I say, great!)

5) Signs (like Malcome said, better on movie but still good!)

6) Wide Awake (even though I dont own this one yet, it still gets nominated!)

Ok that was hard!

Yea, you feel like you just dropped a large weight when you've written up the order.  I agree with your notes Lifeordeath1.

Wide Awake doesn't belong in this list!! haha. I don't actually mind it being there, but it's not a James Newton Howard score. And this is the "List your favorite JNH/MNS Scores in order" thread.  ;)
