Was that really necessary? We know what the film posters look like...
The Pink Panther - Henry Mancini The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - Ennio Morricone.
Peyton Place soundtrack (1957 movie). Versions by Frederic Talgorn/Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the original conducted by Waxman.
Beautiful music. Beautiful film and scenery. Beautiful actress (Diane Varsi).
1) There Will Be Blood - Jonny Greenwood
2) The Master - Jonny Greenwood
3) Kill Bill Vol.1
4) Tommy - The Who (the 1969 LP not the OST film version, so a bit of a cheat really).
5) Elizabethtown & Jerry Maguire. (Both mediocre films redeemed by featuring My Morning Jacket and Durutti Column respectively on their soundtracks).
Off the top of my head:
Man on Fire
Lost in Translation
2001: A Space Odeyssey
Marius Vries - Flying Home
The man with no name trilogy / dollars trilogy.... just fan-bloody-tastic. Fistful of Dollars being my favourite.
The Thing (John Carpenter)
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Various parts of the original Star Wars Trilogy
The Godfather part I
Blade part I
Seems like those are from fairly old films. The only "newer" film where I really liked the soundtrack was Drive and Tron Legacy.
Recent soundtracks I have actually bought on CD include Inception, The Thing (the latest remake one), Signs, and Tron Legacy.
The Third Man
The Draughtsman's Contract
The Dark Knight
The Bourne Ultimatum
The Jungle Book
Some good shouts here, soundtracks are often my fav kind of album.
ones to have a listen to would include most of hans zimmer and James Horner (any of the new batman scores, gladiator, inception + meet joe black is very good ), hackers, tron, blade runner, drive, the list goes on.
Two that spring to mind that are slightly off category are the soundtrack to the recent battlestar galactica tv series and also the aptly named unkle album 'songs for film'.
if I had to pick a fav film composer of recent though it would be Trent reznor of NIN. His soundtracks to the social network and the girl with the dragon tattoo were superb. Dark, moody and menacing.
unpublished by mods - duplicate
Alfie - Sonny Rollins. Great great film, superlative score
Not big on soundtracks here, but I just picked up the one from The Straight Story. Lovely piece, quite haunting and repeats throughout but evokes the film perfectly (which I also enjoyed).
As most have already said... Hans Zimmer
Miami vice - John murphy
The cinematic orchestra - the crimson wing
Vicky Christina Barcelona
vangelis - conquest of paradise
vangelis - blade runner
