  • What is your favorite soundtrack?

    My Top 10:
    1. Crimson Tide (arguably the best soundtrack in the last 20 years)
    2. TIE: American Beauty (great piano theme!) / Green Mile
    4. Hunt for Red October
    5. Gladiator (another great Zimmer work)
    6. Jurassic Park 1 (2 is unimaginative at best, haven't listened to 3)
    7. Star Wars, Shadows of the Empire. (Commissioned Horner work which is based off of a book by the same name. Very, very cool stuff.)
    8. Final Fantasy (some good things on there; not the best but a solid soundtrack)
    9. Star Wars Trilogy
    10. Lord of The Rings (still too new for me to get a good handle on it, but it appears to be very good)

    Honorable mention:
    The Rock (clearly a case of too many cooks spoil the broth; they have a single theme which constitutes the majority of every track; not groundbreaking but interesting to listen to), Shawshank Redemption, Glory, Star Wars Phantom Menace (seems to be 'more of the same' from Williams).

    Yeah, I'm a soundtrack geek.

              Well, I am not much of a music listener but I tend to like Danny Elfman's work on a lot of movies.

              To me when I watch a movie, the music is simply background and I tend to forget about it when I leave the theater or turn off the player.

                The Boondock Saints soundtrack, simply the best soundtrack of all time, period.

                              Videogames with the best Soundtracks:

                              Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
                              Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (Soul Reaver 2 was also excellent)
                              Thief: the Dark Project / Thief 2: the Metal Age
                              System Shock 2
                              American McGee's Alice

                              Games with very appropriate music include Rune and Tribes 2. While I wouldn't really listen to their music tracks outside of the game, they worked well during gameplay.
