James Horner
Born August 14, 1953
Died June 22, 2015
Cause of death: The prop plane Horner was piloting crashed when he flew too low, under the influence of various prescription drugs. Death was instantaneous.

Horner was nominated for ten Academy Awards for scores and songs he’d composed for pictures.

He won two Oscars, both for Titanic (1997):
Best Music, Original Dramatic Score, and
Best Music, Original Song (“My Heart Will Go on,” as sung by Celine Dion).

"One of the best movie soundtracks ever. Come on Hollywood, you can do s--t like this again, let go of the damn Marvel movies already..."
N.S.: Hollywood can't do soundtracks like this, anymore, because James Horner is dead...
because Aaron Copland is dead...
because Elmer Bernstein is dead...
and because Jerry Goldsmith is dead.

As for the Marvel Comics angle, Apollo 13's heroes were all normal, patriotic, white men, as were almost all of America's heroes. Such heroes are today verboten. Thus, we are left with affirmative action casting for comic book movies, racial hoax movies like Hidden Figures, and er, things like My Love with the Creature from the Black Lagoon, better known as The Shape of Water.

You know, James Horner also did the soundtrack to Krull, the movie from which my nom de plume comes (Glaivester after the Glaive weapon in that movie). I think the music elevates a movie that is a little lacking in terms of plot and character.
