I agree. He made a lot of soundtracks, and though his style is somewhat recognizable, they are really different. The "Seven years in Tibet" soundtrack is wonderful with cello solos by Yo-Yo Ma.

I like those too. I also like the original Charlie's Angels soundtrack. Has a nice mix of modern and retro tunes on it.

I've got time just to waste if you would be my new escape.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I'm obsessed with LOTR so of course the soundtracks of the three movies are among my favourites. I especially like "Gollum's song", "Riders of Rohan", "The Bridge of Kazad Dum" and "Concerning Hobbits".

Other than that, I like the soundtracks from O'Brother and Lords of Dogtown, as well as Titanic, Juno, Darjeeling Limited, Into the Wild, and the french movies Taxi and Taxi 2.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I really like the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks...all three of them. They're good for studying for me...there's no words to get distracted by, but they're not like...the stereotypical "classical" studying music either...

I recently got the August Rush soundtrack...it's not the best, but I like some of the songs...especially the instrumental ones.

I have decided that it was time to make a comeback...hey, Michael Jackson's doing it, why not?

Re: Movie soundtracks

Soundtracks--Hmm. This is an interesting subject for me. As a Diamondhead, of course I love The Jazz Singer. Phenomenon ('96) was one of those lightning in a bottle moments--and confession time, while I love most Disney soundtracks, I was initially caught in the whole Titanic experience and fell asleep listening to that soundtrack for more than a year. More recently, I've enjoyed soundtracks for Invincible (basically the softer side of the '70s with just enough bite to be fun) and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I have made the mistake of purchasing a soundtrack for one song (I bought the Practical Magic CD for the pop version of Faith Hill's "This Kiss").

The Evita sountrack (Madonna version) was pretty solid from top to bottom, but my two favorite pieces (Anthony Banderas's "Governments Fall" solo that introduced Peron and "Let's Hear it For the Rainbow Tour") were given very short shrift. Banderas' solo wasn't even on the CD. There was a two-month period where I couldn't get "Oh, It's Sad When a Love Affair Dies" out of my head--for reasons I'll never comprehend.

Thanks for the warning about August Rush, but I have to say, I really enjoy the way the film presents its soundtrack.

I finally made it!

No worries. No spoilers here.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I liked the Titanic soundtrack, but I ended up absolutely fed up with it. When the movie came out you couldn't go anywhere without hearing the song, and everyone had it on their CD's, and... Uf, just saturating. I still think it a good soundtrack, though Horner is a bit repetitive sometimes. I liked very much the CD with the non-official soundtrack: you know, the folk songs of the thrid-class party, the orchestra playing Nearer my God to Thee (beautiful piece of music)...

Madrid, March 11th, 2004. WHO DID IT?

Re: Movie soundtracks

Briony from the Atonement soundtrack is near perfect. If you are a writer or love thrillers you should download it.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I love all of the John Williams soundtracks, including Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Memoirs of a Geisha. Also, Pirates of the Carribean is great, and so is the movie Gladiator. Wicked is also one of my favorites, too.


Thanks for the amazing signature Lisa_Turpin!

Re: Movie soundtracks

The Juno soundtrack is my favorite, hands down. Kimya Dawson makes me laugh.

Re: Movie soundtracks

For musical scores, I prefer Danny Elfman and John Williams - most of the Tim Burton movies (aside from Sleepy Hollow, of course, and I'm not including musicals in the 'soundtrack' category because I think it's a different kind of a thing), Star Wars, Indiania Jones, etc.

But for soundtracks, just compilations of random cool stuff that happens to be in a movie, my personal favorites are A Knight's Tale, Romeo + Juliet (the Baz Luhrmann version) and The Crow.

Re: Movie soundtracks

The Pirates soundtrack is soooo awesome
If you like that, then I bet you'll like the Series of Unfortunate Events soundtrack. The movie bombed (I still liked it), but the soundtrack is genius.
I would take a look at the other soundtracks in my iPod, but I can't find it at the moment. x_x

Re: Movie soundtracks

Lord of the Rings - Howard Shore is a complete genius. I especially like "Concerning Hobbits" and the "Breaking of the Fellowship"
Pirates of the Carribean - All three movies have wonderful soundtracks
and finally
Brave Heart - James Horner does a wonderful job

Re: Movie soundtracks

I was lucky enough to hear a good movie soundtrack recently, from the X-Files: I Want to Believe movie... it was one of the better ones that I've heard as of late .

And I might plan on buying myself a copy of it later this year.

Re: Movie soundtracks

Hans Zimmer is my family's favorite. The guy is just amazing! He did the music for Pirates of the Caribbean (the last two movies) - Dead Man's Chest is my favorite - a must have if you like cello and bass. He also did the music for Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, the Lion King, the Last Samaurai, Pearl Harbor, Thelma & Louise, A League of Their Own, and Backdraft.

The soundtracks from Band of Brothers, Cotton Club, LA Confidential and Road to Perdition are also great.
