James Horner. Not a big fan of the movie mind you but this is a stellar soundtrack. James Horner has created a number of scores for popular films over the years, winning two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes in the process. He is responsible for creating the score for “Titantic” which to this day is the best-selling orchestral film soundtrack of all-time.
The music is beautiful on the soundtrack to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. The integration of dialogue from the movie featuring Jim Carrey as The Grinch is essential. Naturally the fact the man I consider to be one of Hollywood’s best actors, if not the absolute best period, Anthony Hopkins narrates this score makes it all the more listenable.
Check out a scene from this score, “Stealing Christmas”. Enjoy.
