Favorite movie soundtrack - Page 3

post #31 of 136
I have many soundtracks that are favourites but would take Bladerunner in terms of soundtrack purity. This for me is genre defining. The music performs its function in the traditional sense of adding atmosphere, drama et al to the movie presentation. Many soundtracks do this, but more than any other (musicals aside) you could imagine the music genuinely forming a continuous backdrop to the world that Bladerunner presents. An example would be the scene where Deckard is sitting at the Piano, a seamless interweaving of soundtrack and the in-scene piano playing. Just IMO. .

The Matrix
Hackers

Not sure why these two are getting so much appeal, but then you realize the sound that went with these movies could have made the movies.

Two not mentioned thus far, and great movies/scores:

Doctor Zhivago - I first heard this years ago on LP and still own a copy. It was nearly 40 years before I got around to seeing the movie, and I have no idea why.

The Long Riders - I liked the movie and score so much, that I was willing to pay $25 for a German import CD off eBay. My brother and I went to the local Jesse James Bank Museum in Liberty Missouri last weekend. Seems it was James and Co's first hit, and their best haul. The lady who gave the tour mentioned that "The Long Riders" is the best movie about the subject, but is still only 40% historically accurate. Still a good movie.

Wow, a Joe Hisaishi fan. I'm a fan of his, primarily for Nausicaa (Miyazaki's graphic novel/comic that the movie is based on is incredible, if you're into that sort of thing).

Yoko Kanno is another of Japan's great composers for film/TV. Her work for Macross Plus is classic. A lot of people on this forum would like it, I think.

Geino Yamashirogumi's Akira soundtrack is also another excellent choice. "Requiem" almost sounds like the end of the world.

Anyway, I guess it's obvious I've seen a bit of anime here and there.

Bram Stoker's Dracula. Woljech Kilar composed some seriously good classical music for this one. I wish the movie lived up to it.

The Firm, Jurassic Park and Snatch would get honorable mentions from me. Music is what makes these movies IMO.
