I have two:
For film: Red Cliff, it was a close call between Red Cliff and Lord of the Rings.

For Television: Gundam Seed. Plot was good, soundtrack was better. Never had a soundtrack with so many pieces of music in it that I liked.

Lord of the Rings.

Saw FOTR at the Royal Albert Hall with the soundtrack played and sung live. Totally awesome. Very emotive.

Always been pretty partial to the Conan the Barbarian soundtrack.

What?

Woodstock is a great oldie. I also like some other film music. Not sure if there is a soundtrack to go with them though. Love Bernard Hermann, for instance.

I don't think I could choose a #1 favorite.

But, it would probaby be one of these:

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (Hans Zimmer)
How to Train Your Dragon (John Powell)
Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith (John Williams)


Also among my favorites are:

Narnia: Prince Caspian (Harry Gregson-Williams)
The Lion King (Hans Zimmer)
Stargate (David Arnold)
Dinosaur (James Newton Howard)
Babylon 5 (Christopher Franke)
Transformers (Steve Jablonsky)

Is this a soundtrack? I adore it, but I thought it was a concept album, not an actual soundtrack.

It is now. I hadn't heard of it until people started talking about the stage and CGI movie adaptations, hence my idea that it's a soundtrack.

Every song in the Quentin Tarantino movie Death Proof. (I won't even mention Pulp Fiction) “He wears a red bandanna, Plays a cool piana, In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico…”
Freaking awesome.

I like bizarre movies because they have some rather unique use of instruments due to the budgets they are on. On a MST3K episode I just saw, I liked the Master Ninja I soundtrack as it sounds like the entire soundtrack was made with an Akai drum machine and something like a Yamaha PSR series keyboard, that together sounded like an SNES soundtrack.

But I Am a Cheerleader is also another one where the only instrument used is an Arp Odyssey - one of my favourite synths due to it's timbral limitations but expressive capacity.

The highlight here is the Corn-Fest Jamboree.
Bring watermelon seeds and a spittoon. Lawdy, we are also treated to tubalards eating their way through piles of hot dogs.

No, sadly enough, I'm so not kidding.




Could you bring a gun & put me outa my misery?

I was so bummed when I found out I missed a great night at Lincoln Center. They were playing the movie on a huge screen with a live orchestra. Someone told me it was unbelievable. I hope they do it again sometime. It's an experience I would really love to have.
