Favourite Film and TV Soundtracks?
« on: 11 November, 2013, 04:08:33 PM »
Threads subject says it all.  What are you favourite Film and TV soundtracks.

I personally think there are some great Film and TV soundtracks, but the Ghost in the Shell soundtrack has always had this strange effect on me.

Especially these scene:

Mmm....pretty much anything by John Williams.  But for a soundtrack that is made up of existing music, then 'The Business' has a very apt and pretty awesome soundtrack.  Games wise, I always turn off the music.  Well, except in GTA series, where I usually have the rock channel on.....
I don't have a drinking problem.  I drink, I get drunk, I fall over.  No problem!

Ennio Morricone - Once upon a Time in America always sends shivers down my spine.
For a collection of music I have always liked the Kill Bill soundtrack.

Another Williams fan here, as well as Jerry Goldsmith.

You can't beat a bit of Morricone, similarly Vangelis.

I'll listen to any of John Carpenters's scores.

Recent favourites include Daft Punk's Tron:Legacy and of course Paul Leonard-Morgan's fantastic Dredd score.

Ah yes forgot about Daft Punk's Tron...see also M83's soundtrack to Oblivion. Similar but different.

My favourite film soundtracks in no particular order;

Maurice Jarre - Lawrence of Arabia; moving, majestic, enthralling. Stirring stuff indeed.
Ennio Morricone - The Mission, Once Upon a time in the West; his music makes you feel like your soul is ascending to heaven!
Peter Gabriel - The Last Temptation of Christ; brilliant. A really middle eastern flavour, thanks also to a Morrocan group who contributed
Vangelis - Blade Runner; magnificent. Mesmerising. It transports you to Los Angeles circa 2019!
Jerry Goldsmith - Alien; a superb score which makes the experience so enriching
John Williams - The Empire Strikes Back; one of Williams best, the moment when Yoda lifts the X- Wing, the music still sends shivers down my spine!
Pietro Mascagni - Raging Bull; beautiful. Absolutely beautiful, and in stark contrast to the brutal character of La Motta. Scorsese sure knows his music.

Conan the Barbarian (1982) - Basil Poledouris.
The score, probably more than anything else, sets the tone of this film. Simply fantastic.

The UNtouchables 1987 has some lovely tunes. Still like alot of gerry anderson stuff inspired stuff even the incidental music is just um Fab. Star  wars and a bit of music as harroison ford goes into a tunnel in the fugitive.
The Justice department has a good re-education programme-it's called five to ten in the cubes.

I never notice soundtracks unless they are overbearing and intrusive (eg Murray Gold's in dr Who) or have become classics like Star Wars or Superman.

I used to live with a bloke who collected soundtrack albums however - he had hundreds, even from films he'd never seen or didn't like. Always thought this was a weird obsession as he never seemed to play them.

As for a Basil Poledouris' Robocop score, I've got this release from Intrada and it's a work of genius!  :thumbsup:
