Anyone here into movie soundtracks? I never paid much attention to them before, writing off the genre as kind of "pop classical," but I picked up some used CDs last week and am surprised to find that a lot of this stuff is really enjoyable. These are the titles I got - just some composers whose names I was familiar with: Hans Zimmer: Gladiator Thin Red Line The Last Samurai James Horner: Star Trek II - Wrath of Khan Rocketeer Apollo 13 Bicentennial Man Titanic Jerry Goldsmith: Star Trek V Star Trek - First Contact Star Trek - Nemesis The Mummy I haven't listened to all of it yet, but so far I am definitely more into Zimmer and Goldsmith than Horner (meh). The Last Samurai especially has some really nice parts in it. I also have to say a lot of it sounds better on full (loud ) speakers than headphones, but when you can't go loud, headphones still sound good. It's just not always so expansive and "big," but what you lose there you gain in more immediacy during more quiet parts. What other composers or soundtracks are worth checking out? John Williams comes obviously to mind, but are there any more obscure ones to be on the lookout for?
