View Full Version : What is your favourite film soundtracks?
Post your favourite film soundtracks.
You can do it in a top five style if you want, or just as many as you want.
Does not have to be the main soundtrack, just any in a film or on a film soundtrack CD.
Death Rides a horse from the film of the same title, or Kill Bill
Another Kill Bill one
I love all the 28 Days soundtrack, but this is the best.
I also love the entire deathproof soundtrack, but this is the best IMO.
I was going to put on the actual one, but this is just too gorgeous. By far my favourite score.
Others include the american beauty soundtrack, Hero and House of flying dragons, Sin City ect.
and lovely bones soundtrack.
(all of the songs)
That's all really, I don't want that many movies. :/
Amityville Horror (don't ask I find this soothing for some reason)
OMFG I've waited my WHOLE LIFE for someone to make this thread! :D:D:D
#5: West Side Story
#4: Chicken Run
#3: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
#2: Kung Fu Panda 2
#1: How To Train Your Dragon
The Back To The Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones series, Ghostbusters, The Matrix trilogy, The Goonies, and Star Wars (original trilogy). Every other soundtrack is just a footnote in comparison :ohn:
Way way wayyyyy too many to name. There are just way too many that I like and more than one of them occupy the same rank in my list. I have to say though that anything by Hans Zimmer is usually Gold.
Some of my fav. compositions include:
The Battle - Gladiator:
Now We are Free - Gladiator (Vocals by the famous Lisa Gerrard.) This song is so beautiful.
The Final Charge - The Last Samurai:
The Red Warrior - The Last Samurai:
And the list just goes on and on...
Tron: Legacy <3
There are a LOT more... :D
Max Steiner's soundtrack for King Kong 1933 is my favorite. Other's are better, but this is my favorite. It's hard to explain how important this body of work is. Prior to KK33 movie soundtracks were created by going to the studio's music library and 'appropriate' music was selected for each theme. On the other hand Max Steiner was given the task of creating the music for the movie itself. Kong was given a descending series of notes, that while sounding monsterous portends his future demise. Ann's is in 5/4 time and aurelly displays a certain innocense of character. By today's standards it's somewhat hokey, but for it's time it was very groundbreaking. The music itself lends so much to the action and atmosphere that even the twelve inch puppet can become a real sympathetic character. With out Max's soundtrack I doubt the movie would have been as successful. (though to be honest all aspects of this film had to work to make it what it is - a classic which has inxpired the likes of Speilberg and Lucas.)
Far too many to name!
Anything by Hans Zimmer, James Horner and John Williams is fine by me :tmb:
However, Brian Tyler and Klaus Badelt also get my votes for super atmospheric OST.
And one of my all-time favourite soundtracks (technically a TV mini-series not a film, but hey...)
If we're talking individual tracks, these are the first ones that come to mind:
R.I.P. John Barry :(
Soundtracks as a whole:
The Living Daylights
A View to a Kill
Tomorrow Never Dies
Black Hawk Down
Die Hard Trilogy
The Lord of The Rings Trilogy
Mouth to Mouth
Requiem for a Dream
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Taste. You haz it.
The score of Alexander Nevsky, by Prokofiev. Too bad the DVD of this movie is in such poor shape:
And Conan the Barbarian, by Basil Poledouris, which, in my ignorant opinion is not only of the best orchestral film scores of the 1980's, but one of the best orchestral film scores ever.
And lastly, the score of Braveheart, by James Horner:
I'm a true believer in the Conan score. Nothing since has been as epic.
There should be mention of Predator, another hit Arnold starred in.
