Your favorite movie soundtracks

Did a quick search, sorry if this is a repost.

What´s your favorite movie soundtracks?

I just listened to The Lion King soundtrack for the first time in years, and its still as good as I remember!
Possibly my favorite movie-music made by Hans Zimmer (talking about the "instrumental" tracks on the cd).





Other soundtracks I find enjoyable:
Requiem for a dream, The Gladiator, 28 Days Later, and The Edge to name a few

A Clockwork Orange (opened up classical music to me)
Blade Runner (got me listening to Vangelis, and now I own over 10 albums)
Edward Scissorhands
Star Wars Chapter 4: A New Hope
Sweeney Todd Original Cast Recording (I know, a musical, not a movie, but great anyway)
Garden State
The Crow

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

Once Upon a Time in the West




The first one always makes me teary-eyed, and the second one always gives me goosebumps

So long, losers.

Enjoy your Bare Knuckles, fanned frets, Axe fx II, and Djentprogmathcore bands.

Over and out.

Yup, enjoyed that soundtrack. Not the movie though


Another soundtrack that came to mind is Conquest of Paradise 1492, made by Vangelis.

Pan's Labyrinth (Javier Navarrete)





Blade Runner (Vangelis)





Any of the scores that Zbigniew Preisner did for Krzysztof Kieslowski's films (The Double Life of Veronique in this case)





Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters (Philip Glass)





And many others, of course.

Blade Runner.
An American Werewolf in London (sadly never released- great collection of songs about the moon!)
Original Star Wars Trilogy
Much Morricone- ESPECIALLY!! The Ecstasy of Gold. It's immense!
The Black Hole- one of John Barry's overlooked greats
Tron Legacy- it's just an amazing fusion of Daft Punk's electronica and orchestral.
Batman- Danny Elfmann classic!

Edit- How could I forget Enter The Dragon and Dirty Harry? Shifrin's a soundtrack genius!

I have too many to list, but my favorite has to be all the tracks Jonathan Davis/Richard Gibbs wrote for Queen Of The Damned.

The Lord Of The Rings by Howard Shore. Goddamn.

Get Him To The Greek by Infant Sorrow. I laugh my ass off when I hear their music.

Halloween by John Carpenter. Probably one of the eeriest scores ever.

28 Days Later by John Murphy. Filled with great ambient sounds, and good, rock-based instrumentals.

All of the Harry Potter scores by John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper, and Alexandre Desplat. Enough said, mirite?

The Queen of the Damned by Jonathan Davis and Richard Gibbs. I'm a big fan of the Anne Rice novels that this was based on, and I feel like Jon captured the feel of Lestat's character perfectly.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children by Nobuo Uematsu and The Black Mages. Great music based on Nobuo's themes from the video game, but almost the entire album has a metal twist on it, which I love. And wonderful choral work.
