It was with a very heavy heart that I heard of the death of legendary composer James Horner. An avid pilot, Horner was alone on his small S-312 Tucano MK1 plane when it crashed within a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest, about 100 miles from Los Angeles. Composing since the 1970s, Horner won 10 Academy nominations throughout his long career, winning twice for his work on Titanic. In his time within Hollywood, Horner worked with some of the industry’s biggest directors, including Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, George Lucas, Ron Howard, James Cameron and Terence Malick.
Ruth at Flixchatter posted a lovely tribute about her favourite musical pieces, and below is my own tribute to the man himself. Like with Robin Williams, it isn’t about super hard clues but more of a celebration of the wide range of films he worked on.
After watching the hilarious action 22 Jump Street the other day (sequel to 21 Jump Street), I realised that while I have talked about bromances in TV shows, I have yet to do a quiz for a similar theme in films. And there are plenty to choose from, especially when they have to try and save the day. See if you can work out the six buddy action films below, chosen in order of age. If you can work out all six before looking at the answers below, give yourself the highest of bromance hugs.
