Default Good movies and soundtracks

I just turned on the tv and Homeward Bound was on...I love the soundtrack to this movie, plus there's nothing better than three animals traveling on an impossible journey just to get home to the people they love.

Ah, yes...the one opportunity I had to watch that movie, it was shut off about 30 minutes in. Which sucks. It was on a school trip, though, so...yeah... I have to admit, I liked what I saw ^^

Return of the King soundtrack, specifically. Howard Shore is a god.

As far as movies go, I think a good atmosphere is needed. This may include all three of the poll options, so I won't vote.

True that.

They have good covers of Beatles songs and it has a good plot.

The Fountain has a fantastic soundtrack. It's kind of a slow and convoluted movie, though.

LotR movies have a phenomenal soundtrack, yes, although I'm not entirely sure what this thread is meant to be about.

To answer the "good movies" part, 2001 is most excellent.

sd;khsfed YES.

The plot might be a little lacking because it's more character-driven than anything, but it's atmospheric and emotional and the characters and the music are absolutely superb in every way.

Aww, I remember the Homeward Bound music. Doodoodoo doo doo~

The thread's basically about which movies are the best and why.

Haven't heard Vangelis, but Hans Zimmer is without a doubt one of the most overrated modern composers. I'd say he's second only to Danny Elfman.

Howard Shore will always be the best modern composer in my eyes <3

Vangelis originally was in prog rock bands and shit, then started composing for himself iirc... I have yet to check him out properly but I plan on doing it one day... he worked with Jon Anderson (Yes) so...

Most great films would be great without their music. Every now and then film music helps, but most of the time it's blatant.

Movie versions of musicals wouldn't. They'd be pretty amusing, though. Much shorter, too.

But yeah, I agree. If it falls on the musical score to make a film good, it's really not a good film.

Yeah, some silent films are amazing.

But in good soundtrack department, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain is cool. I like the Donnie Darko soundrack too, does this make me a loser, Probably.

The Donnie Darko soundtrack is a huge disappointment, although I'd still consider it one of my favorite movies ever.
