And this movies are awesome too Razz .
My favorite is Edward Scissorhands or Big Fish, all themes in these movies was of Danny Elfman, but the most beautiful is the famous called "Ice Dance", and my favorite too.

For me, Danny Elfman is a person who can bring out feelings in anyperson.

If you are looking a movie, and a music in the background make u cry, or feel exciting, or whatever feeling, you ever think that the composer of that movie theme is Danny Elfman.
