I finished listening to Solaris by Cliff Martinez, a superb film score. I would compare it to Vangelis' Blade Runner

I noticed a soundtrack thread up and going again. Feel free to post your favorite composers or scores here.

Just to get the ball rolling again:

Clint Mansell made two excellent film scores for Requiem for a Dream and Moon

Default Excalibur



Trever Jones use of Wagner's Siegfried's Funeral March from Götterdämmerung was masterful.

Also Orff's "O Fortuna" is used well in Excalibur.

I have to agree! I recieved my copy about two months ago and I'm still listening to it. "The Fate of Kong" theme is outstanding.

John Barry is one of the most under appreciated film music composer. My favorite film score by him is Body Heat. I love that haunting jazz theme of the movie. Rest in peace John Barry.

I think Craig Armstrong (The Incredible Hulk, In Time, Moulin Rouge, World Trade Center, The Great Gatsby) does fantastic work... He is one of my top composers. It's such a shame that Brian Tyler replaced him on 'Now You See Me.' I also like James Newton Howard, Hans Zimmer, Ramin Djawadi (LOVE his 'Clash of the Titans' score), James Horner, Nicholas Hooper, who's work for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was stirring and beautiful, as well as Alexandre Desplat, who composed the last few Potter films. I am liking Michael Giacchino more with each score he does, same with Henry Jackman. I am liking Brian Tyler less as his newest scores have been released. I also like what Steve Jablsonsky did for the bits of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen that were set in Egypt. All of this started with John Williams' Star Wars scores, specifically Revenge of the Sith. I love all of his work.

Michael Nyman's Gattaca is also a fantastic minimalist score.

Great example. Gattaca has to be called a sci-fi/noir classic by now, great score by Nyman, script and direction.

It should be a classic.

Awesome list, I really like your video game music score list. Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop (Yoko Kanno) are the anime music scores that I always return to.

Thanks for sharing.

I love Giorgio Moroder's score in Midnight Express plus almost anything done by John Williams.
Hans Zimmerman has done some great stuff also.

I love the sparse, heartfelt score to Peter Fonda's The Hired Hand (composed and performed by Bruce Langhorne).

Favorite film score is always a tough choice but the soundtrack I have probably listened to the most is the Inception Soundtrack. I absolutely loved everything Hans Zimmer did with it, however the trailer song that Zack Hemsey made was also brilliant, it's just sad that so many people think that Hans Zimmer made that when he didn't.

Leonardo DiCaprio has been involved with many films that have good and great soundtracks. Even if it's not original music, the selection of music, such as in the film Shutter Island, has an excellent feel. Such good luck for Leonardo, to be in films that have great soundtracks.
