When Littlefoot is mourning his mother in the first Land Before Time. When he sees his shadow and runs to it thinking its his mother.............................. wow. Made a Horner fan right then and there.

The entire 'spider' sequence from KRULL (Horner) - represented by two cues, "The Widow's Web" and "The Widow's Lullaby", is a stunning 11 minute suite of music with so many emotions at play, from dissonant terror of the rawest order (with Ligeti-esque blasts of choral dissonance) through celestial awe (the ending of the former track) and pathos-laden nostalgic yearning (the children's choir in the latter cue), to the rapturous recapitulation of the love theme that follows and finally a massive orchestral and choral crescendo that evokes fear and wonder simultaneously. BRILLIANT.

Not only does Horner's music here add tremendous maturity and depth to this sequence (which itself, dodgy stop-motion for the spider aside, is the most original and affecting scene in the film), but it is, compositionally, a true marvel of virtuosic proportions, and a high water mark in Horner's output in my opinion.

I will never understand why this score isn't considered his best EVER. The while damn thing is jsut freaking awesome. It leaves his TREK scores absolutely gasping for air in my opinion (not that I don't think they're great, but... They're no KRULL, that's for sure!).

100% agree. Horner's best and my favourite soundtrack ever.

that scene in "Hancock" when he wills himself back to life and flies away. features Powell's incredible "Death and Transfiguration" which i'm surprised isn't used in movie trailers and sports events

There are two scenes in Porco Rosso. One where Porco is flying at low altitude over the sea, and a montage scene were Gina remembers her first time flying with Porco. Those are gorgeous moments in the film and a good example of old fashion "movie magic". You totally forget your watching a "cartoon" at that point.
