Romeo & Juliet (the Baz Luhrmann one) introduced me to Radiohead and for that I'll always be thankful

My favourite soundtrack is Koyaanisqatsi. In fact the film is basically a soundtrack in itself...

Mission impossible 2! the track called "Seville" is amazing!

Yeah, I was just about to ask "where's the Philip Glass love?"
But since he's now been mentioned: Where the hell is the love for Danny Elfman?! C'mon people!

My fave's:

Philip Glass - The Music Of Candyman, The Illusionist

Clint Mansell - Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain

Danny Elfman - The Nightmare Before Christmas (of course), Edward Scissorhands (of course, again).
And though it's not a soundtrack, Danny's new album "Serenada Schizophrana" is easily the best thing he has ever put out. It's simply AMAZING! As you may guess, it's still pretty soundtrack-esque.

Hans Zimmer - Gladiator (I'm not really a fan of Zimmer, and not a huge fan of this OST either, BUT, the track "The Battle" alone makes this OST a favorite. That track is so excellent it's not even funny).

John Carpenter - Halloween (the original), The Fog
Giorgio Moroder - Midnight Express

Anybody got the soundtrack for Videodrome btw? I've been looking for that one for ages.

Trevor Jones - From Hell
Danny Elfman - Sleepy Hollow
John Williams - Memoirs of a Geisha
Tan Dun - Hero

are my favourites

Hans Zimmer is a great composer for soundtracks. He also did Black Hawk Down and Rain Man, which is a great movie with Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. Dustin Hoffman was the autistic brother of Tom. Great acting in it. I like Gladiator the best out of the movies though.

Other soundtracks I like:

Meet Joe Black
Moulin Rouge
Harry Potter-orchestral version
Star Wars
