> What a career. Anyhoo, whaaaaaaaaaat say you all?!

OK, so it seems the last time you did this was... October 2019. Yikes!

Anyway, my listing from almost 3 (!!!) years prior went thusly:

2019 Listing:
10. The Haunting
9. Planet of the Apes
8. Patton
7. Lionheart
6. Poltergeist
5. Mulan
4. First Blood/Rambo: First Blood Part II
3. Alien
2. Legend
1. Star Trek: The Motion Picture

So, solid list with a very clear bent towards the man's Sci-Fi, horror and fantasy work. Now, lets see what the 2022 version will be:

2022 Listing:
10. The Wind and the Lion (1975)
9. Capricorn One (1978)
8. Medicine Man (1992)
7. Basic Instinct (1992)
6. The Blue Max (1967)
5. First Knight (1995)
4. The Mummy (1999)
3. First Blood/Rambo: First Blood Part II (1982/1985)
2. Legend (1985)/Lionheart (1987)
1. Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

And the Honorable Mentions which are all fantastic to Really Very Good in their own right:

The Edge (1997)
The Ghost and the Darkness (1996)
Polertegiest (1982)
Alien (1979)
The Haunting (1999)

Mulan (1998)
The 13th Warrior (1999)
Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)
The Shadow (1994)
The Russia House (1990)

The Sand Pebbles (1966)
The Secret of NIMH (1982)
Planet of the Apes (1968)
Rudy (1993)
Under Fire (1983)

The Omen (1976)
The Final Conflict (1982)
Air Force One (1997)
Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)

Rambo III (1988)
Gremlins (1984)
Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)
Patton (1970)
Chinatown (1974)

----

I mean, I could honestly put most of my 'honorable mentions' into the Top 10 and be perfectly happy with it. Just depends on the day and the mood I'm in honestly. That said, obviously I've explored more of Goldsmith's work in the intervening years which has broadened my list a good deal. Still have several more score to discover, but that's the joy of this hobby, isn't it? smile
