    Default All you movie buffs. What is the best movie Soundtrack? I say Conan the Barbarian!

    The Anvil of Crom rocks. Can you think of a piece of music movie that is better?

    One of my fav soundtracks is that to the film The Tree of Life.

    When we say soundtrack, I'm assuming you mean original score?

    Under that definition, I'll nominate Ennio Morricone's music for the film The Mission



    Never saw the film, but the music is great

    It's not a bad film at all but it's the music that is really memorable.

    The Poledour is score for Conan is truly awesome, but I'll have to go with Herrmann's "The Day the Earth Stood Still.". That just oozes all the sense of wonder and over the top hubris of science fiction.

    Weston is soooo right. Add to that Forbidden Planet.

    I must cast a vote for the '31 King Kong where Max Steiner sets the standard for movie music to come.
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    When we had a cake party for our relatives to introduce our firstborn son to the extended family, my two brothers surprised me by playing Poledouris' "Anvil of Crom" with two tubas. I'm so lucky I have that on videotape.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    For me it's a three way tie:

    Korngold's soundtrack to "The Sea Hawk"

    Rosza's "Ben Hur"

    and John William's "Star Wars." It's actually John Williams that got me into classical music - I loved the rich scoring more than I did the actual films, in some parts, and found myself knee deep in Strauss and Wagner soon after.

    I have always liked John Williams' score for E.T. -- from beginning to end.

    And I cannot help but to mention Elmer Bernstein's theme for "To Kill a Mockingbird" -- it gets to me every time I hear it.

    That's one of the best movies I've ever seen. The music is much more effective if you have the visuals.

    Well, I have to put my vote in for Howard Shore and the Lord of the Rings, however if I was limited to a single film, then The Fellowship.
    If I had to be narrowed down to a single track, possibly The lighting of the Beacons.

    My personal thumbs up for film scores goes to the following (I have multiple thumbs!)

    I'm echoing some of the sentiment already posted on this thread: Ivan the terrible is the best film ever and it's music is a significant part of this. Morricone's score for Once Upon in the West is glorious. And everything that John Williams has done for the Star Wars movies can never be forgotten.

    Just like to add this jewel from B Herrmann

    The music Zbigniew Preisner did for Krzysztof Kieslowsk was always moving:

    More Herrmann:

    And finally:
