Cool Film, Cool Soundtrack


War Hero
Book Reviewer
I love films. I also love (most) film soundtracks. While recuperating yesterday, I watched "The Thin Red Line" on Sky; seen it many times and I am still moved by this wonderful score, but specifically this piece, which is probably familiar to many people:

"Journey to the Line" - Hans Zimmer (The Thin Red Line OST)

Anyone else have a favourite original pieces of film soundtrack (i.e. not music 'inspired by' or 'heard in the background in the cafe scene...')?


Hans Zimmer does some really really good tunes for movies and games and same goes for that John Williams

The music to the TV series 'Band of Brothers' is just fantastic. I also agree with tiddlyoggy that the Gladiator soundtrack is something special.

Re: "Love, Honour & Obey" - concur with comments so far, but the film score was not necessarily written for it... :?


War Hero
I'm wondering whether it is becoming less common for a film to have a complete score written for it nowadays; if you look at the closing credits today you will often see a long list of the tracks used plus copyrights and it's generally already existing tracks; if you buy a soundtrack CD, there's often a small percentage of actual score and ten or so tracks brought in from other sources to act as incidental music to the film.

Oh and one more I forgot to add

Empire of the Sun (Suo Gan)

Although listening to the songs alone do not do them justice, it's when they're choreographed into the film that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
