Goldsmith did great music that elevated already good movies but he was world renowned for also bringing gravitas and particularly inspired efforts to highly forgettable or outright stinker movies.
THE SWARM (incredibly catchy main title)
STAR TREK TMP (Not quite a stinker, but his music far outshines it)
THE 13th WARRIOR
One of his very best scores for me is a modest, largely forgotten George C. Scott character study from 1977 called ISLANDS IN THE STREAM. He put so much heart and emotion into a small, troubled family period piece he had to know going in wouldn't make a dime. Vintage Goldsmith.
