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!

Lotr soundtrack never gets old for me. Also enjoy the Inception soundtrack from time to time.
Baz too. Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet are 🔥🔥🔥
For me, a favorite of mine will always be Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori. I know it isn't movies per-say, but the Halo and Destiny soundtracks are some of the best I've ever heard PERIOD, regardless the media they're supporting. Never gonna get tired of them. Halo: Reach in particular is one of the few OSTs that actually make me feel emotional. (I have Autism, which has the bonus (sarcasm) of having kinda dulled emotions, so it's a feat to make me feel something other than just happy/content. On the flip side, I have a hearing sensitivity, so that's a blessing/curse itself.)
Listening to the Solo: A Star Wars Story soundtrack and it's excellent. John Powell is the composer. Never heard of him before this but it's a well done movie score. One of my all time favourite movie scores is LOTR. I'm getting the "complete recordings" now as they're being re-released. They come with a blu-ray disc with the entire score. Sounds amazing in HD5.1.
Hmm...can't believe no one's mentioned "Oklahoma"!

Quentin Tarantino is arguably my favorite when it comes to movie soundtracks. My favorites are Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, Pulp Fiction, and Kill Bill (in no particular order).
Baby Driver also had a surprisingly great OST that was worth a purchase.

Fair warning, since the set is out of production now prices have shot up for it. To the tune of $225 for a new set. Used prices are however more reasonable at around $70 on BluRay. I got my set on deep discount at Best Buy of all places around the holidays for $40. Same with complete Futurama and James Bond collections.
It's funny as the pricess on them are crazy nowadays for a BNIB set. I have a few other collectibles that I've opened over the years that I almost wish I would have kept sealed due to their increase in value now. Funny what they say about hindsight I suppose, ha.

Yikes--those are some serious prices. May have to keep my eye open for alternate offers, maybe check out my local used record stores--or take maters into my own hands and sail of the Pirate Bay--harrr!
pretty in pink, valley girl, flashdance, fast times at ridgemont high, top gun, breakfast club, scott pilgrim, heavy metal, the hobbit (rb)
Pulp Fiction
I really liked the Armageddon sound track. Also the blues brothers, hard to to that for me. I would like to see the version of Drive that had an Imogen Heap sound track specially written for it. A BBC one off I think.
I like any of the Dark Knight trilogy soundtracks. Probably my favorite is The Dark Knight Collector's edition, closely followed by TDKR deluxe edition. I'm a little mad that we can only purchase TDK collector's edition as digital: no CD, no vinyl. The normal TDK soundtrack is great as is, but the bonus tracks are nice remixes. Same thing goes for Man of Steel collectors edition, although I believe that it can be purchased as CD. Also, Tron, LOTR, and villian themes from POTC can be good as the main Jack Sparrow theme is good but gets overplayed. Arkham Origins is pretty good for a gaming soundtrack, though I don't listen to it regularly.
Ha! I love both Matrix and Interstellar soundtracks as well. Some of my other favorites are: Tron Legacy by Daft Punk Samsara OST Mocking Jay Part 1 curated by Lorde Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon OST La La Land OST Kundun by Phillip Glass
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.
GunsOfBrixton
our lord and savior, danny elfman \o/ tbh i'm more of a fan of his oboingo stuff, but he makes solid scores.
CwalkPinoy
Yep, same page! Glad to know there are other Boingo fans hanging around here.
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
MBaker
The Akira soundtrack is very well produced! I recommend the tracks Kaneda, Mutation, and Shohmyoh
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) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4207112/?ref_=nv_sr_4
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.

I also really like how it dynamically changes based on what’s going on in the game.
I realize that this particular string is all kinds of old but I wanted to add that while I played the crap out of the original Doom I didn't listen to the sound track much. I used to spin up Nirvana's never mind before loading DOS and executing doom. The sound effects got layered over the album, so to me Nevermind IS the Doom soundtrack :)
I listen to movie and video game OSTs all the time when I study. Right now actually too some Zelda BOTW and Bladerunner 2049.
