So what's some of your favorite original film scores of the past few years?

For me I'd list the following as a few of my favorite....

"There Will Be Blood"
"The Dark Knight"
"The Village"
"Talk to Her"
"Once"

I like the majority of Wes Anderson's films soundtracks as well but I don't think they're considered original scores.

Elfman and Williams are some of the best around. I think I enjoyed the music in KOTCS more than the movie. I loved Iriana's and Mutt's theme.:D

CelticPredator
08-28-2008, 04:41 PM
I ONLY listen to movie scores.

Oh and I think KOTCS was by far this years most disappointing score. Its OK. But its so bland and boring IMO. Mutts theme sounds like it was written for a 10 year old, not a 21 year old.....John is losing his touch sadly.

Hellboy was good, but it lacked HB's theme! I dont care Elfman! You GOTTA KEEP THAT THEME! Anyway, his Wanted score was fun as well.

Question is, are we talking about literally scores you can own on CD or the scores to the film in general. Batman Begins in the movie is one of my favorite scores, but the CD content isn't as exciting, some of the better tracks aren't on it, which is dissappointing.

Enjoyable, but as far as CDs, TDK is enjoyable from the first track to the last for me, which makes the missing pieces and some of the so-so ones on Begins stand out more. I thought better of the Begins CD before TDK, that one just delivered so much a better selection. The only piece I wish was on the TDK score from the movie itself is the bit from the final battle with Batman, where he throws Joker, same music generally as when he's fighting Ra's with the house coming down around him overseas.

The Autobots theme, and especially the track titled Optimus are quite moving actually, for a film like Transformers. The non-action scenes with the autobots features a soft, melodic theme, really enjoyable. Not so much in sound, but in feeling, it's similar to music like the string parts of Corynorhinus on the Batman Begins score.

Braveheart
Shawshank Redemption
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
In the Name of the Father
Road to Perdition
King Kong
Green Mile
Dances With Wolves

Some times it's not the whole score but certain parts that just make the scene so much better and leave u with that feeling where u just want more.:D

I have put together a few cd's of my fav songs from the scores that i like the best just to play when i want to chill out and relax.

32. The Happening
33. Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban
34. Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire
35. Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix
36. Hitman: Silent Assassin, Contracts, and Blood Money
37. Independence Day
38. JAWS
39. Jurassic Park
40. Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2
41. King Kong
42. Kingdom of Heaven
43. L4yer Cake
44. Léon: The Professional
45. The Lion King
46. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Complete Recordings
47. The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth I & II
48. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
49. The Matrix Trilogy
50. Mission Impossible 2
51. MobyDick
52. Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy
53. Predator
54. Road to Perdition
55. Signs
56. Sleepy Hollow
57. Snatch
58. Spider-man Trilogy
59. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
60. Star Trek: Generations
61. Star Wars Trilogy & Prequels (Complete Score of Episode I included)
62. The Sum of All Fears
63. There Will Be Blood
64. Transformers
65. Trespasser: Jurassic Park
66. Troy
67. Unbreakable
68. The Usual Suspects
69. V for Vendetta
70. Vertical Limit
71. Virtuosity
72. X2
73. X-Men 3: The Last Stand
74. 3:10 to Yuma
75. 300

Unbreakable may be the all-time favorite for me. Hard to say when throwing such scores as TDK, Jurassic Park, LotR, Jaws, Road to Perdition, & PotC into the mix. Not to say that any one is better than the other, but some are simply more emotional and iconic personally. Favorite composers would have to be Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, Howard Shore, Thomas Newman, and John Williams. Though Harry Gregson-Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, and Tyler Bates are magnificent too!

I like the "Arrival to Earth" track, but I've always liked the "Decepticons" track the best. Very shark-like in its crescendo. Subtle and menacing at a persistent pace, gradually building to a massive, grand tone. It was incorporated so very well.

I'm glad to see so many score fans in here, and someone else who enjoys the score of "The Professional", Hicks. :rock

Hardly. Returns is more epic, and grand sounding, Helsing is sounds like a modern action score, a bit of old feel, and Beowulf has the epic timeless feel, but with an electric guitar.

I love Gladiator. I though Leonidas was as cool as Maximus, but the style and ammount of the CGI speed effects just pissed me off eventually, too much, just when you'd be excited about a heavy fight, it'd come to screeching halt for slomo and kill the buzz. I think Gladiator found a better mix of slow-mo and regular speed action.

I never got why people didnt like 300. I know, opinions and all that, but it is what it is. Mindless gore, and fighting, with great images. I dont know what everyone expected...but hey.

Same with Cloverfield....its all about a monster in new york. Nothing more.

The Slo Mo was to mimick comic shots. Slo mo is awesome...I dont know why everyone is always agenst it. It stops time to show something intresting. My take on it anyway.

I'm not against it, at times it's great. Like I said, I just thought if they'd done it 50% of the times they did in 300, would have been more interesting, and since I know nothing about the comic, it really boils down to pure cinematic experience for me.

Eh. I cant agree. Im a total sucker for slo mo. If some dude jumps in the air guns blazing and the shot just slows down to show everyone getting destroyed with blood everywhere...I just get giddy. Which is why I loved Wanted to much. :naughty

MaulFan
08-31-2008, 09:47 PM
If done right, slow mo can be awesome, like some of the shots in The Matrix movies for example. I just found 300 felt like 80% of the movie was slow-mo, like I actually got bored with the movie because of the pace it caused in conflict with the fast pace of the regular action. Perhaps if the slow-mo in 300 hadn't been riding such fast paced action between cuts, it would have sat better for me, but for me watching it, the fast stuff was like going 0-60 in 2 seconds and then the slow-mo came in like a brick wall and I crashed.

CelticPredator

For me yes, and it won't even be close. I love the score for Inception but the only reason Inception is in my top three currently is because not much has come out. It wouldn't have been in my top three last year, or any other year that I can think of, which leads me to believe it probably won't hold where it's at currently by years end.

My list of most anticipated soundtracks for 2011 are:

Green Lantern-- Howard is going to be great putting Sci-Fi and Superhero themes together.

Thor---Again, this is going to be a perfect opportunity to get some Superhero music combined with a sweeping LOTR type of theme. I don't know who is going to be composing it, but I hope it turns out great.

Captain America--Superhero with War theme?? Yes I'll have another.

Cars 2---Giacchino did an outstanding job with the first one so I can't wait for this one to arrive.

Neither are in the same ballpark as Black Swan.

'Black Swan' has a much more comprehensive score than 'Inception' and 'TRON Legacy' (eg: not so repetitive), but I have to say that I personally was drawn more to the latter two scores. 'Black Swan' was good, but it's take/remix/update/etc on the 'Swan Lake' music didn't captivate me as much as the original Tchaikovsky music does.

How To Train Your Dragon's score was way more than I expected it to be. "Forbidden Friendship" is my favorite track.

I can't get enough of the Tron soundtrack. I have the Social Network soundtrack as well since Trent Reznor is my favorite musician, but haven't heard it yet - want to wait till I watch the movie first.

I would just say like to say the song "Derezzed" of the Tron Legacy sountrack is total crap....I KID! :rock I've been listenin to it over and over again for an hour! hah

CelticPredator

I cant stop listening to the Tron score. I cannot. Best tracks IMO are...

The Grid
Reconizer
Arena
Rinzler
Game Has Changed
Father and Son
Outlands Part 2 (just for the last 30 seconds)
End of Line
Castor
Derezzed
Fall
Sea of Simulation
Disc Wars
Clu
Flynn Lives
and End Credits.


____ it, I like the whole thing. But those are the one's I listen to the most.

Reinhardt

It's funny, probably the only song i DON'T like on the Tron soundtrack is Derezzed!!

Disc Wars is my favorite track by far.

I am finding it so difficult to pick a favourite track, they are all so incredibly strong and emotional!

I think maybe Outlands would be my top choice :dunno

Very interesting looking at the booklet for the cd that in the back where Daft Punk give thanks Hanz Zimmer is mentioned, I thought when listening a number of the tracks could slip right into Inception quite easily, wonder how much input into the orchestral part he had? I imagine a fair bit as it sounds so very Zimmer to me

Reinhardt
12-24-2010, 09:21 AM
Outlands definitely sounds like Zimmer. It sounds almost exactly like the scene in Batman Begins when Batman is taking Rachel to his place.

He had ZERO input in the score. It was 100% Daft Punk. They mentioned them because they probably got tips, and or listen to his scores. They listened to everything, Zimmer, Williams, ect....

In my book this = input

I highly doubt you thank somebody in the booklet through simply listening to their scores

I didn't imply that Zimmer did it, just that they were heavily influenced by him. Which is awesome, because Zimmer rocks.

I still get chills listening to The Mission, after all these years it's the only cassette tape I actually saved from the pre-cd days.
