    Mine would have to be Edward Scissorhands. The ICE DANCE scene is just beautiful.

    Edward Scissorhands by far. One of the only films where the music BETTERS the film, meaning it is above the film and becomes its own entity, moving the film in impossible directions with just its music. I know there are countless films that arent the same without the music, but to me this film would not have been what it was without the music. The music said things that couldnt be seen on screen ever, or said in words. Just beautiful stuff. And the ICE DANCE music is the most beautiful.

    Third for Pee Wee's. Incredible carny-like music. True brilliance, the theme during breakfast, and the audio track with Danny explaining the cues.

    Maybe not my favorite, but the one that sticks with me the most is MIB.
