Movie Scores (Soundtracks)
Any fans of film music here?
Do you appreciate the grand film scores from yesteryear? Or the more modern flavours from composers like Vangelis or Hans Zimmer?
I confess, I got hooked back in the 70s when a little film called Star Wars hit the screens. Its now hyper-iconic score by John Williams made a large impact on me at the tender age of 10. That and Jaws from a couple of years earlier. Williams was THE composer for me for many years but I also greatly appreciated scores by the late, great Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Alan Silvestri and many others.
For many film music just serves to enhance the emotional impact of the story and that's where you leave it. For me though I love to hear it away from the film it's written for and enjoy it also as pure music. I love all kinds of music but I'll always hold a special place for film scores. Looking up to some composers as film music "gods" is about as close to being religious as I get nowdays!

I got too many favorites, so I'll just name some random ones:










And so what I think is the best climatic score, and thanks to that, the most climatic scene in any movie:




And, just to justify things, I think Episode 3 works thanks to John Williams.




Oh, and it might have something to do with Evan "Fucking Awesome" McGregor too.

Great choices there Elk.
I've always loved that cue "Vader Final Battle" where Darth and Luke go hell for leather!
It's quite religious sounding and very moving. Great scoring.
And Elfman's original Batman theme is a knock-out!

Very few people would have me gushing fanboyish.

Clash of the titans

I listen to this when going to sleep to Dream like a Boss .
Lucid dream tip, set alarm for 1 hour before normal wake, hit this music and quickly go back to sleep.

Oh well, I forgot the GOD of musical scores: Ennio Morricone





Sorry, but this score can only be played with the scene alongside




As for this:




And his most underrated work:





Now that we are on a Carpenter movie, got to give out to his music too:




And so, the best horror theme ever:




These posts are also fan-service for my bro, TheGulegon.

Of course. I mean, a movie with both Kurt Russell and Donald Pleasence in it, with John Carpenter as director, how can I not like it?
