"This post has been removed by the author." - How cool, I kept wanting to do that to see what happened.

Anyway, I usually do not pay much attention to film scores (especially when a film bores me so much like Syriana), so really...

01. Brokeback Mountain (Gustavo Santaolalla)
02. Stiletto Dance (Go On, Laugh)

That's all I got.


Far From Heaven
Brokeback Mountain
In the Mood For Love

I like the soft melodies. This is just a rough list though because many movies I didn't really pay attention to the score. I'm going to watch Nemo again soon though, I have it queued.


Oh yeah A.I. also.

Monsters Inc, The Incredibles and Nemo! I love the music in all Disney films!

James said...

Okay, the list is good, but you must have some Hans Zimmer. Gladiator, Shark Tale or The Last Samurai, it would just be wrong to completly forget him.

Also, I would have liked to see James Newton Howard there somewhere. His work on King Kong and The Village were both good listens.

Kudos, however, on taking my advice about Desplat. A very underrated composer.

Not that many people like the music in Yimou's Hero and House of Flying Daggers, but I'd say those.

Yeah that and The Choristes also

I enjoyed the Finding Nemo music, but I wouldn't call it best score of the decade... it was just sort of "good"... can't argue with Brokeback, though. Heartbreaking.

Have you seen Far From Heaven or Birth? Those should really be here, they're stellar. In the Mood for Love is also great.

Emma said...

Indeed, the music in Birth was great, but I though, nah, I've got two from Desplat already.

Hans Zimmer is overrated.

james said...

Watch Spanglish and listen to the way the strings accomadate the guitar solo. Then we'll see whether or not he's overrated.

Maybe if the Pirates score wasn't heavily plagiarized from other Zimmer scores (and if it had actually been credited, appropriately, to Zimmer), I'd agree with it being on the list. It does sound absolutely lovely for the film...the cello jig in dorian that they use for a number of shots of the sailing interceptor is gorgeous.
