"I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but perhaps some Hans Zimmer. His "Pirates" films are nice and the Angels and Demons soundtrack is good too. Although the entire film score for Angels comes from the main theme of 160 BPM, it is a…"

"Thomas Newman's score to the Road to Perdition is particularly atmospheric, Ghosts, Cathedral, and Just the Fella are just sumptuous. Probably not to everyones taste, but there you are. The simplicity of his melody, his  harmony, his instrumental…"

"Lord of the Rings is fantastic for sure by Howard Shore. Also, Braveheart, by James Horner. Both have modulations that are absolutely brilliant! But I do agree with you... I have found myself buying full soundtracks going to buying only specific…"

"I really like some of the lesser known scores for the A-list film composers, like Hans Zimmer's score for "The Weather Man" or especially Danny Elfman's for "Good Will Hunting" the intro to that film is great musically."

"Sometimes there is a moment in life when we finally have to 'come out'. For me, this is that moment:
I love The Sound of Music.
Yes, as a young boy I cried like a snivelling baby when I saw the film, and Rogers and Hammerstein wrung tears out of the…"

"I think James Horner's best score is from "A Beautiful Mind". You should check it out if you haven't heard it already. Andrew Highland said:
One of my favorite movie soundtracks is the cartoon Balto.  It's James Horner doing it so you're not going…"

"Jon, not only was that a bloody hilarious film, but it was another 'kind of great' adaptation of Homer's Ulysses. What an antidote to both Homer, and Joyce. I love the banjo version of Ode to Joy in Raising Arizona, to me another hilarious comedy -…"

"Raymond,
I always like to sing the praises of under-rated, or, rather, unappreciated composers. Writes some very beautiful music. Very individual voice, and not so forced as other German/Austrian Romantics. 
P.S. Are you really writing, and running…"

"Had a listen to several themes by  Mr. Morricone, and as a kid I used to like the theme from the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - even mimicked it on the guitar. Yeah, it is iconic. The Dead Space 1 soundtrack, for all of its superficial chaos, is…"

"Thanks for the suggestions. Will look up some. John Williams is a good craftsman who writes some catchy music, or good catch-cry music - nothing above or beyond that. I'll look up Nuovo Cinema Paradiso. Any other suggestions? How about from 70s…"

"Ardent admirer of Shostakovich as I am, his film scores are not really worth listening to. Some of the greatest are by the Jewish emigres who 'came to Hollywood' in the mid-20th. Century. Erich Korngold is chief amongst these, although his film…"
