    Spoilers for the movie Dunkirk. In my honest opinion this is one of the most beautiful yet sad endings to a movie I have ever seen. The music is so gorgeous and the visuals of the men being treated as heroes for surviving set in contrast with the lone pilot, with his plane out of fuel, flying over the beach, where the men were trapped, knowing that when he lands he will die, is breathtaking. The emotion on his face is acceptance of his fate. Which is why when he is captured he makes no attempt to break away. Also the men who saved the stranded soldiers from the beach, which in turn, brought the reality of war to the public, were barely given credit for risking their lives to rescue the stranded soldiers. I cried throughout this whole movie, however I cried the hardest I have ever in my life when I saw this. Such masterful filmmaking and composing. Bravo Christopher Nolan! Bravo Hans Zimmer!

    Hans Zimmer can literally do no wrong. I would have included “The Deer Hunter,” “The River,” “Amalie,” “Revolutionary Road,” “American Beauty,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Good Will Hunting,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “In the Name of the Father,” and especially “The Third Man,” “Star Wars,” “Chariots of Fire” and “”Cinema Paradiso.” How on earth you left the final four off your list is beyond comprehension.

    The one music film score that made me cry the most was The John Willams music that plays when you See Darth Sidious, Darth Vader, And Grand Marf Tarkin together at the end of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith.

    Avatar's score brought more tears to my eyes than Titanic's. I cry almost every time I hear "Shutting Down Grace's Lab." Not to mention there are a ton of other tear-worthy parts of scores like "The Destruction of Hometree."
