    What are your favorite soundtracks from films, video games, etc.?
    For me, Tron: Legacy (Daft Punk) and Terminator (Brad Fiedel) sound epic.

    Titanic
    Revolutionary Road soundtrack

    I might add that I prefer scores to soundtracks with songs when it comes to films, just fyi.

    My favorite scores are probably the ones that Tindersticks have done for Claire Denis films.

    Recently, The Social Network score was pretty excellent.

    I agree, but exclusively because of their use of 18th c. composer Jean-Philippe Rameau and Dustin O'Halloran's haunting and melancholic piano work.

    That's all from disc 2- the slightly less pop side of the soundtrack release. The modern dreampop and 80's alternative songs work so well in a contemporary take on a period piece.

    Danny Elfman's score to "The Nightmare Before Christmas".

    The entire soundtrack is based off of very few themes (mainly just 2 leitmotifs - Jack's and Sally's) which are scrambled and rearranged and overlapped so brilliantly that until you dissect each piece you don't realize what he's done.

    The melodies are also just so darn purrty!

    The score is more instrumental but it definitely gives me goose bumps everytime I hear it. The Time Machine, OST.

    I don't belong here -- Klaus Badelt


    Professor Alexander -- Klaus Badelt
