    There are loads of iconic masterpieces in films throughout film history, especially with musical geniuses such as Hans Zimmer and John Williams around.

    But what kind of music has stood out for you whilst you've been watching a film?
    My personal favourite is from Gladiator as the video shows below -



    Great film, Great music What's your favourite?

    The Legend of Tarzan song was so enthralling and gripping throughout the whole time it came on.

    I haven't seen the film in ages but for some reason it sounds similar to another film.. But I really like it!

    Set the tone of the film perfectly. It might not be a musical masterpiece but it worked perfectly for this film and set the atmosphere for the film right from the first scene. Its simple yet so creepy and haunting.

    Or Also Sprach Zarathustra from 2001 (wasn't written for it obviously but it's pretty much synonymous now).

    In terms of instant recognition, you don't get better than Jaws. It simply can't be anything else.

IT REMINDED ME OF AVATAR(NOT THE CARTOON BUT THE MOVIE WITH BLUE PEOPLE) SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Sorry for the caps, just me thinking about the movie makes me want to watch it again. You should definitely watch it, I'm sure you would enjoy it as much as I did.

    Too many great moments to choose from! I don't expect many people to have seen this one but Excalibur (1981) used a ton of Wagner's music to great effect. This scene from The Tree of Life (2011) also stands out for me as being one of those jaw-dropping moments in cinematic history:-



    As was this from Elizabeth (1998):-



    And this more recent example:-



    Too many choices

    Not so sure about iconic, but this piece has never left my mind since I heard it:



    And if you've seen Requiem for a Dream, you'd know why I'd rather not hear the music.

    It's a great theme, undeniably, and I love it, but it takes a minute to kick in.
