Cinema Paradiso

Blade Runner

Star Trek II (yeah, I know, but it's a nice James Horner score).

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

Most soundtracks composed by Angelo Badalamenti; most soundtracks composed by Ennio Morricone; a second vote for Anton Karras; and for nostalgic reasons a special mention to Brad Fieldel for Fright Night (the isolated lossless score on the BD sounds amazing)!

To be honest, that's not even getting scratching the surface. I could be here all day...

Live And Let Die. Surprised no-one else has mentioned it.

The Song Remains The Same, though that is cheating. It is only called a soundtrack as the royalties agreement covered live albums but not soundtracks, leaving Peter Grant to clean up again.

Zulu. Don't all welsh people pick that? I actually went to Rourke's Drift a few years ago. It's about 1/3rd of the size in real life compared to the film. The redoubt could hardly have held 2 cows. Hard to imagine 3,000 people fighting hand-to-hand at that close a range. Frighteming.

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

Great shout there with Fright Night Strapped for Cash - I do like some of the less obvious choices and so many 80's films had great scores. JJ Bomber was bang on with  Live and Let Die too, the overall funkier treatment of the Bond theme throughout really suited the era and had a great orchestral arrangement.

 

I'm probably too nostalgic about such things but I don't find many of the modern "greats" that interesting, like the new Bowie song and modern TV themes it seems that putting some kind of "hook" or memorable riff in the tunes is no longer the done thing. Sure there are plenty of great mood pieces around with Inception, Dark Night etc but I'm not sure where the great tunes such as Rocky, Superman, Star Wars went?

Anyway, here's a few themes/scores that are more my cup of tea;

Condorman 

The Goonies

Fletch (Axel F would be the more obvious Faltermeyer choice but everyone knows that well Lol

Commando

and what I'd consider a good mood piece -

First Blood

 

I think it's pretty obvious what era I grew up in and I'm already a grumpy old man it seems Biggrin

Paris Texas- Ry Cooder
Southern Comfort -Ry Cooder
BladeRunner- Vangelis
Superfly - Curtis Mayfield

Probably a few others Lao Schiffrin, Bullit, Ennio Morricone, is sometimes very hard to seperate film from the music so music films a bit of a cheat.

Alfie- Sonny Rollins

Could do tv themes next !?

RE: What's your favourite movie soundtrack?

Another vote for `Excalibur` with the Wagner inclusions being my favourites. Also -

Once Upon A Time In The West - Ennio Morricone

Midnight Express - mainly by Giorgio Moroder if I remember correctly?

Magic Sword-Quest For Camelot - various artists

Octopussy - James Bond film soundtrack

Get Carter - soundtrack

Muppets Christmas Carol - soundtrack

Also another  vote for Ennio Morricone`s spaghetti western trilogy and another vote for `The Sound Of Music`

And lastly, if anyone can find me a copy of `God Knows I Miss You` by Carl Wayne from the film `Percy`s Progress` you will have made a friend for life!

Thanks for the link there, AE Jim.

I always find that scene mesmerising; then remember that I'm watching Marcy D'Arcy (and I really hated Married with Children)...
