Re: Movie soundtracks

I actually love soundtracks quite a lot, whether its score or a good compilation.
I like to get my classic dose of score cheese by listening to various 70s/80s horror film soundtracks. Some of my favourites include Suspiria (Goblin), Dawn of the dead (Goblin), and Zombie (Fabio Frizzi). As for more modern score, I really enjoy the work of Clint Mansell (Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain), Carter Burwell (Fargo) and Air (The Virgin Suicides).
As for compilation-style soundtrack, I adore the soundtracks for every Tarantino film. That man just knows music, I swear. So good.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I love soundtracks. Really, I do. Lord of the Rings, Grease, Phantom of the Opera, Harry Potter, King Kong, the new version is particularly good, Band of Brothers, the tv series, has great music, anything Hans Zimmer, including the Prince of Egypt, which is very pretty music. Anything Disney at all, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast etc etc...

The new Batman films have wonderful soundtracks too. The Shawshank Redemption. The Green Mile...

I could go on for hours.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I love Harry Potter soundtracks(all of them fav song would be Window to the past), and POTC (all of them, fav song would be He's A Pirate or Up is Down), ohh! and Narnia I was SO happy there was a Prince Caspian Soundtrack I reall like The Battle and Prince Caspian Flees.

Ooh! and some anime movies like Spirited Away and Laputa. And the Star Wars ones like umm, what it called *scrolls through iPod* oh yeah! Across the Stars. Bridge to Terabithia music was really good too. And Doctor Who and Torchwood soundtracks too.

And Titanic! That was the BEST soundtrack ever!! And film! (apart from Harry Potter of course!! )

Re: Movie soundtracks

Star Wars are definitely worth the investment. The music is just awesome and totally drags you in. Another one I entirely recommend would be the soundtrack from Memoirs of a Geisha. It's just as beautiful as the film is! Just so painfully emotional and brilliantly fitting to the story on screen.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I listen to soundtracks a lot; mostly Harry Potter and Narnia and Lord of the Rings (I've practically got that thing memorized by now).

Re: Movie soundtracks

I'm going to have to add the Tarzan and Hercules soundtracks to my list of favourites, which already consists of LOTR, Pirates, and Dragon Heart. Michael Boulton and Phil Collins do absolutely excellent jobs. Definitely worth recognition.

Re: Movie soundtracks

The Dark Knight soundtrack and the Twilight soundtrack are amazing. The absolute best soundtrack's I have ever heard. Normally I hate classical music and that's mainly what is in the TDK soundtrack and yet I love it. I don't own them yet, but I will. I've just listened to them online.

Re: Movie soundtracks

Just a one to mention. There's a tv series (HBO) called Band of Brothers, the soundtrack is written by a guy called Michael Kamen. It's some of the most beautiful music I've heard in a long long time, it really drags you into the tension of war without ever getting loud, or oppressive.

And The Dark Knight too has a brilliant soundtrack!!! Good choice PBG!!

Re: Movie soundtracks

Love the soundtrack for all three Pirates of the Caribbean films. Almost anything my John Williams: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, etc. Plus the other composers who worked on the HP films too. The music for Conan the Destroyer is excellent. Robin Hood Prince of Thieves theme, also the song that goes with the movie.

Re: Movie soundtracks

My recent fav soundtrack is the one for The Dark Knight- its brooding and perfect

But my favourite has to be the "Pride and Prejudice" (2005) Soundtrack by Dario Marianelli and performed by Jean-Yves Thibaudet (piano) and the English Chamber Orchestra. I love the way it brings to life the beauty of the British Victorian Era and its absolutely stirring!! I love it

Re: Movie soundtracks

Well, more of a mini-series than a movie with this one. Kingdom Hospital! I absolutely love two of the songs:

Worry About You - Ivy
Red Dragon Tattoo - Fountains of Wayne

I also love Danger Zone from Top Gun

Re: Movie soundtracks

I listen to quite a few soundtracks. I love John Williams too! I love the first three Potter ones that he did, Jurassic Park, ET, Jaws, Star Wars!! He's simply amazing! So yeah I have all the Potter soundtracks, and I think GOF and OTTP are my favorites. I also have the soundtracks to Sweeney Todd, Walk the Line, and Across the Universe. I really want the Pirates of the Carribean soundtracks, especially the first one. I'd also really like the soundtrack to Shop Girl, I love the music in the film and think it'd be splendid to listen to. There are some other ones I want, but I can't think of the names at the moment.

I love soundtracks!

I never knew that they made soundtracks for the Band of Brothers. I love this series. I think that'd make a great soundtrack! I'll have to look for it!

It is honestly one of the nicest ones I have heard in a long time. It makes me well up every time I hear it; there's a number of tracks specific to each episode and they're really impressive.

I just thought of another one- The Bodyguard. I love the songs used in that film, so it's one of my definitive favourites. No matter how often I see the film, the music never gets old.

Re: Movie soundtracks

I'm going to have to buy the latest Indiana Jones film theme music, when I've saved up the money. Also, Pirates of the Caribbean!

Pirates of the Caribbean is a must have.

I went to see My Best Friends Girl the other night. I was surprised by how good the soundtrack was, even though I knew very few of the songs involved. I always notice that I like a soundtrack if my attention is drawn to the music more than the dialogue at a given moment, so I liked that one. I don't think I would buy it, but it was nice to hear an assortment of modern music like that.

My latest is Pocahontas, the Disney soundtrack. it never gets old!!

Disney! I was watching Basil the Great Mouse Detective earlier (yes I'm kid at heart ) I forgot that had really good music. The Lion King films are really good as well.

Beverly Hills Cop/Axel F is another theme I think is an extremely catching tune. Suits the character perfectly.
