    A straight to DVD movie, Stargate Continuum featured a score by Joel Goldsmith, the son of Jerry Goldsmith. One theme stands out for me from the score is the plaintive piece called "New Identities".



    He also did some work with his father, Here is Joel's contribution to Jerry's score to Star Trek, First Contact, Flight of the Phoenix.

    John Barry’s Romance for Guitar and Orchestra fromDeadfall obviously inspired by Rodrigo but a lovely piece in its own right.
    I’ve always enjoyed the film but it was heavily panned by the critics.

    That was one of the most memorable movie scenes from my boyhood, hearing that played the night before the battle where they knew they would perish and seeing them spending that time remembering.

    Seems to me likely that John Williams must have been inspired by this.

    Watermelon Man (1970). Great music all the way through.

    Can't post a link to the trailer as it's asking me to sign in.

    'Thief' starring James Caan. Crap film but Tangerine Dream's soundtrack is brilliant.
