For some reason it dawned on me last night that of all the movies that I had watched recently not one of them featured a score that I could even remember, let alone single out as being exceptional. (Now in some ways I guess that's a good thing because a good score can just set the tone and remain invisible.) I can't think of anything in the past twenty years to compare to the memorable themes of the 70's and 80's -- such as John Williams' themes. Or even farther back, like the work done for certain Hitchcock movies in which the score was integral. So, everybody, what recent (last 20 years) scores stand out in your memory ? Let's exclude musicals (including Disney animated musicals) and other soundtrack "songs" don't count either, so for instance all of the songs for the "Matrix" soundtrack don't count as it's score. - I remember Marylin Manson's score for "Resident Evil" just because it was so very different. - I remember Ennio Morricone's score for "The Mission" because it was so haunting. - I remember the "Jurrassic Park" theme, but it annoyed the hell out of me. - I remember the jazzy temp of "The Thomas Crown Affair."
