As the title says, what has been your most memorable most played back movie score? Soundtracks such as with bands who played in the movie are not what we are talking about here. Only composed scores by the many great artists out there. My favorite would have to be John Powell's Paycheck movie score. I just love that score, can't stop listening to it. I love the rythm and the tempo he applies. I specialy am addicted to the track "20 items" and "Main titles". That movie also happens to be one of those movies i can watch over and over again and not get tired of it, such a fun movie. Enough about me, what are your favorite movie score(s)?

Here's a link to the Paycheck soundtrack, it has some small samples from each track in case your curious to hear which ones i was refering to:

I really love what Han's Zimmer did with As Good As It Gets. The main theme to that just boosts me every time.

I think the Requiem For A Dream theme by Clint Mansell is a very well written piece, and clearly alot of others agree with me. That damn score is in every other trailer I watch.

But then, the cream of the crop for me, as a Batman fanboy, has to be Shirley Walker's renditions of Danny Elfman's Batman theme. I honestly think she did a better job than he did, and then ontop of that wrote multiple villian themes, something Elfman never did. I can just pause, and hear the Two-Face theme in my head right now, The Joker's theme in my head, the Penguin, she gave each character their own theme. My favourite scenes musically wise would be when Batman would visit Arkham and go down, seeing all the various inmates, and all of them would get 4 bars of their theme as he passed them blended in together. Truely awesome.

I'd pay a good sum for the Good As It Gets soundtrack. I'd sell my soul for the TAS one.

I am currently tied between Harry Gregson-Williams's Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater soundtrack and David Arnold's Casino Royale. Both have amazingly beautiful and moving music that really thrusts you into the action...if the music makes it easier to get excited about what's happening, it's doing its job. Also, I have to include Chris Cornell's and David Arnold's 'You Know My Name' even though it's not on the Casino Royale ST Album. It's by far my current favorite song of all time.

Well anything done by Hans Zimmer or Brian Tyler. I think my favorite soundtrack would have to be Children of Dune. Then perhaps all three Lord of the Rings flicks.

Highwaymen - Cr*p film/great score, Mark Isham I think - don't think they'll ever release it though.

Mychael Danna is pretty good as well - Antwone Fisher score is gorgeous as is The Ice Storm.

Got to agree on Requiem for a Dream, Clint Mansell and Darren Aaronofsky make an awesome combo. I'd also recommend his score from The Fountain.

Every single one of Michael Kamen's scores were gold. He died waaaaaaaaaaaay before his time. Take a listen to three films, for example, X-Men, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Lethal Weapon(co-written w/Eric Clapton). It's beyond hard to believe the same guy wrote each score. Amazing.

My other favorite, as Beast Boy mentioned; Ennio Morricone. Such a unique style with music. There hasn't been one like him since, there will never be one like him again. I love his work on the Dollars trilogy but I think his work on Once Upon A Time In The West etches the Dollars movies just by a hair. At the very end when "Finale" plays and Harmonica says goodbye to all he's prepared for, the song just hits a note in my heart every time.
