James Horner, In Memoriam

James Horner was a composer who wrote outstanding scores to a number of films, including Titanic, The Wrath of Khan, Aliens, and (my personal favorite (as far as music goes)), Braveheart. He was tragically killed in a plane crash yesterday. In honor of him and his work, what are your favorite movies scored by him? What are your favorite pieces he wrote? Post them here.

He's an acquired taste I guess. Sometimes there's a bit too much foghorn for my taste, but otherwise he's pretty good.
