Best Orchestral Film Scores

I enjoy orchestral works for film. Two good examples are Gladiator by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard and Empire of the Son by John Williams. John Williams seems to have a very impressive body of work. Who are your favorite modern day orchestral composers and what film scores have they done that you like.
When in time does "Modern Day" begin? Many of the best film scores are by Korngold, Rosza, Bernstein etc, but they may be out of your time frame.
Good point. So, do you have any more recent favorites?
Try Sakamoto for Bertolucci's "The Sheltering Sky".
Any of Bernard Hermann's film scores, Glory, Patton, Willow , The Right Stuff. Victory At Sea by Richard Rogers for the TV series. I liked Dimitri Tiomkin's westerns. Morriconi ( wrong spelling) for Eastwood's spaghetti westerns. Virgil Thomson's " The River" and "The Plow That Broke The Plains" Some of these are old but still good.
I second Glory. Even better are:
Jaws (forget the shark approaching theme. The rest is stand out arrangement).
And for pop/orchestra:
the Toys soundtrack - a true gem.
For me Ennio Morricone's "Once Upon A Time In America" tops my list. I also own the cd. Last night I watched "Under The Tuscan Sun",and thought this could have been so much 'more' had he done the score. I also love "Melana". This poor guy probably holds the record for the # "Oscar" nominations;never having one,even once. He has scored near 500 films.
Anything by Howard Shore; one of the best IMO
Ennio Morricone's "Mission" with Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons.
Personally I agree with Elgragon's opinion, Ennio Morricone's "Mission".

Main motif performed by recorder and sacred vocal pieces are subtle, lyrical. It is almost like a treatment to purify my earthy thoughts.

Happy Listening.
Thanks guys. I be on the lookout at my next trip to Tower Records.
