RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

When I was a kid, I loved Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey soundtrack (the Steve Vai "Reaper Rap" was amazing), and Top Gun. ( I wore out a VHS of Top Gun aged 8-9, and can remember most of the script even today. Ahem.) 

Listened to them both again recently- they haven't aged well...

What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

All of the classic John Williams themes will go down as the greatest, but one from a relatively unknown composer (Craig Safan) from a relatively unknown film will always be one of my faves, it fitted the mood of the film perfectly and always kicked in just when required to add a bit of grandure to an action scene (it's a slow starter) - Remo - Unarmed and Dangerous

A great escapism movie with the popcorn.... I remember the hero of the piece grabbing the bad guy who had a diamond in one of his teeth and the hero pushing that badie's face up against a window and using him to cut a hole in that window...  Smile

 

Great tune also, well said      :bounce:

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

Agree with Hans Zimmer, just does thirst epic sounding instrumentals with such scale and always well recorded, I like Inception, definetly turn the sub on for that. 

Trainspotting is a good soundtrack.

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

Most John Williams soundtracks are pretty good, although he may be running out of ideas.  Listen to the theme from The Witches of Eastwick, then Harry Potter to see what I mean.

Hans Zimmer is certainly up there but my favourite has to be The Mission by Ennio Morricone.
