    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 :)

    Yup, enjoyed that soundtrack. Not the movie though ;)


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

    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.
