Go on then, blurt it out.

For me it's got to be Hans Zimmers Batman trilogy. However I think he really nailed it at around the 6 minute mark of this :

Near the top is Spiderman and Inception aswell for me.

I enjoyed Madagascar aswell but in a different way.

Probably Shore's LOTR for me, but Road to Perdition butters a lot of parsnips as well.

Possibly Mass Effect 3. The Mass Effect 2 score was excellent, but when they added a touch of Clint Mansell to ME3 it stepped things up a notch:

Skip to 1:40 for the good stuff.

The 28 Days Later one mentioned above is good, too. And obviously there's Amelie...

Tron legacy has a good soundtrack by Daft Punk. Snippets of it are popping up on tv ads everywhere.
David Lynch's critically panned sci-fi romp Dune has a soundtrack by Toto, it's pretty good. Blade Runner also worthy of a mention. Grosse Pointe Blank hasn't really a soundtrack per se, just lots of good songs throughout as does A Room For Romeo Brass.

(film) scores ...

Assault on precinct 13 (John Carpenter) main theme
Amelie (Yann Tiersen) especially this bit
Risky business (Tangerine Dream) Love on a real train

My answers for soundtracks would be different.

Amelie (Yann Tiersen)is my fave.
Run Lola Run
and Bolton winning 2-0 at Anfield in a cup replay mid nineties.

I thought this was going to be a willy-waving thread for collectors of sheet music.

Sunshine has a great soundtrack. I'm quite partial to the Highlander soundtrack that Queen did, and Flash Gordon come to think of it.

Obviously Star Wars and LOTR are up there too - can't beat a huge orchestral film score smile

Gladiator and LOTR are probably my favourites. Also like Braveheart.

Out of interest, no he didn't. He meant score. I write scores, I don't write soundtracks.
