CRAIG'S 100 FILM SCORES (100-11)

In recent years, one of the key factors of my love for film has been the use of music. Whether it be the clever use of a chilling score to made horror movies terrifying or the use of beautiful, haunting music for an epic moment, cinema has benefited from the tireless work of great composers who have worked hard to make some of these films memorable. Music of the heart is an undeniable statement when it comes to enjoying the perfect movie experience that leaves you humming the tune for days, weeks, months and eventually years.
