Movie Soundtrack

Just wondering if anyone else enjoys listening to the occasional movie soundtrack? I have to say the three that come to mind for me are from Interstellar, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and the Matrix. I listened to the Matrix soundtrack for ages! Loved the blend of music offered. Interstellar is great for testing headphones IMO as well (or anything Hans Zimmer writes). I'd love to hear any soundtracks that stand out to you!

Add a comment...
As a big Oingo Boingo fan, I've enjoyed following the soundtrack work of Danny Elfman, post Boingo. Lately, when I'm in the mood for instumental music, I've really been digging the work of Two Steps from Hell. Was introduced to them, oddly enough, as the music for my daughter's gymnastics floor routine. Not really a soundtrack I guess, but I don't really know how to classify the genre. It's essentially soundtrack music not tied to a movie.
Anything from Quentin Tarantino--found a lot of interesting music I'd otherwise never would would have discovered on his OSTs.
Chappie OST- Hans Zimmer
Blade Runner 2049 - Hans Zimmer

Last but not least, Westworld season 1 OST (Television, not movie I know!).
Purple Rain
Thanks for starting the discussion. Found few gems.
Few of my favorite tracks:
Broken Arrow - Hans Zimmer
American Beauty - Thomas Newman
Matrix reliaded - Zion - Flute
Gladiator - Now we are free
Labyrinth :)
The Greatest Showman! :D
The Fountain - Clint Mansell
The Road - Nick Cave and Warren Ellis
Swiss Army Man - Andy Hull and Robert McDowell
Where the Wild Things Are - Karen O and the Kids, and Carter Burwell
If I could find it, the "Her" soundtrack by Archade Fire
There are others, but for original soundtracks for non-musicals, these are probably my top right now.
1. The Phantom thread
2. You were never really here
On a side note - The theory of Everything is on regular rotation these days. What a loss.
It's not a movie, but "Paint it Black" from the Westworld soundtrack is pretty amazing. And of course "The Light of the Seven" from Game of Thrones. Ramin Djawadi is an incredible artist IMO
WestWorld ost is amazeballs!! :D
There are some great recommendations here. I agree with ElectronicVices about Basil Poledouris. I think he made some epic and underappreciated themes in his time.

The inclusion of anime is good to see, too. Anime has some inspiring music, from the hot Jazz from Yoko Kanno's Cowboy Bebop (Tank!) to the music of Hisaishi (which was previously mentioned).

I would also recommend Christopher Franke and the Babylon 5 OST, as well as the Legend OST by Tangerine Dream
Once in awhile I do. Not very many films have full soundtracks though. Or I'm just not familiar enough to know more than the disney films.
Personally I have the Original Soundtrack for Transformers The Movie. (The original movie.)
My favorite :D
Just watched "Score: A Film Music Documentary” (2016)

Well done, and well worth the watch & listen.
3:10 to Yuma OST - Marco Beltrami.
Kind of surprised Garden State hasn't gotten more mentions.
It really tries too hard to appeal to the disenfranchised
Dear mike,

I'm a huge fan of matrix soundtracks myself, but more importantly I try to produce music that represents similar style! If you wish to have a listen to few of my demos, let me know:)

Knock knock.
my two most Favorite OSTs right now is Baby Driver OST, very instrumental heavy and well mixed and the most recent Doom OST very heavy electronic metal instrumental music and also mixed very well.
the new DOOM did a really great job of "updating" the classic soundtrack IMO
