If you haven't heard by now, I guess I'm the one who's gonna break it to you. Film composer James Horner died in a plane crash outside Santa Barbara on Monday. It's believed he was the pilot.

This is a huge loss for the film industry. Horner was one of Hollywood's most prolific composers. He scored over 150 films, including some of the biggest movies of all-time. Just check out this short list:

Titanic
Braveheart
Avatar
Glory
Field of Dreams
Apollo 13
A Beautiful Mind
Aliens
Troy
Patriot Games
Clear and Present Danger
Cocoon
Stark Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

That's a serious list. If you can find someone who grew up in the 90s and didn't own either the Braveheart soundtrack or the Titanic soundtrack, that person is a damn liar. Everybody owned those soundtracks. Half the guys in my freshman dorm wrote term papers to the former. Horner won two Oscars for the latter, including one for this:

R.I.P. James Horner. I couldn't have pulled off those all-nighters in college without you.
