* Horner's track [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yoqAuBlaGU "Resolution and Hyperspace"]] from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' is so awesome that it explodes out of the movie itself and reappears at the end of ''Film/DieHard'' instead.
** Or start at 03:06 during the track [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yn0hV53dykU Futile Escape]] from ''Aliens''. It's a theme that constantly builds, getting more intense and really gets your adrenaline pumping. So awesome he used many cues from it for the themes of the Marines in ''Film/{{Avatar}}''.

* The soundtrack for ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'' is consistently praised as one of Horner's most solid all-around efforts. To name just a few highlights: the aforementioned main theme with the patriotic trumpets, the famous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6i5vgDJFb4 launch scene]], the edge-of-your-seat [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NZR35_GorU "Re-Entry and Splashdown"]], and last but definitely not least, Music/AnnieLennox ''harmonizing with herself'' beautifully over the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJRotVl2IJ8 end credits]]. The main theme from ''Apollo 13'' is frequently used on "teaser trailers" for movies that don't yet have soundtrack music written for them, to give them the appropriate level of awesomeness.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzNhQefDvH0 main theme]] from ''Film/TheRocketeer'' is just lovely; sweet and soaring and wistful. Then the melody repeats, picking up a bit of speed and another layer of orchestration each time through, until finally it's become an action theme so BadAss that it's been repurposed as background music for pretty much every other action movie trailer released since then.

* Regardless of the fact it's a "kid's movie," the score from ''TheLandBeforeTime'' is haunting and affective and is nearly Pavlovian in getting you to cry. Just watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cky-2nOsFRU the hatching of Littlefoot]] without remembering that first traumatic viewing. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObPneATgASs "If We Hold On Together"]] is another good one.
