Just saying, the original Batman and Superman movies had big, epic, film scores. They had these excellent marches. Why can't the new movies have something like that?

I think there might've been some stuff in Iron Man could be used in the future, but it needs to be amped up big time. Also drop the hard rock music besides the Black Sabbath stuff.
Well that style does not fit every character. If it was Captain America or Thor using rock music I'd understand the criticism but it's Iron Man here.

I think the score throws a lot of people off since most of it is just rock and guitar.

But, I think the score was really great in the Mark I scenes right after Raza tells Tony he has til tomorrow to finish his missile and it shows Tony getting ready with the suit.

I don't get where it says that Iron Man needs to have a hard rock/guitar type of score. Not saying you can't use that stuff. But you know, there just didn't sound like there was much of it there.

By itself the music sounds OK, but it added very little to the actual movie.

It had a distinct enough theme to remember,(duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh, DUH DUH), but it wasn't really anything special. I found out that TOm Morello from Rage played the guitar part for the score (it said in the credits), and it sounds like a guitar riff he would play. I just wished it were better. No biggie though, the movie was still good.

the score wasn't bad..but it's not great either. I still think that x-men 1 had one of the better Marvel scores (runs away)

X-Men: The Last Stand's score was brilliant.

I can't say the same for the movie.

I can run off some more I'm saying marvel (and to a large extent dc) don't write epic scores, they write scores to service the movie.

ten years from now

'hum the superman score'
'do do do do do - do do do
do do do do do - do do do
do do do do do - DO DO DO!!!

'hum the iron man score'
er...

'okay, hum the spider-man score'
erm...

'hum the x-men score'
...

'hulk score?'
...

'hum ANY marvel score'

I think Spiderman's score has a large number of loyal fans who will always remember it. Iron Man's is cool sometimes, but it isn't that hard to forget it sometimes; s I agree about that.

Interesting list - I would never rank Spider-Man above Star Wars, and I don't think Iron Man would make the Top 7. There are other, more memorable scores...Back to the Future, for instance.

I'm only sticking for now with Superheroes

If I would do a list of all the great themes Iron Man wouldn't be in the top 10 .

Are those really your favorite scores of all time????? I agree with a couple of them, but some of the others are just ....

Then you really haven't heard that much film music, eh?

First time around I didn't notice any theme musice at all. Didn't even notice the score throughout the movie. Didn't even think about the music until I read this forum. Pretty good for getting me in the mood without me even realizing it, and good cover for hiding from my eventual judgement of the subject. But this is a superhero movie, and kinda a big deal, so recognizable music would be appriciated.

The score wasnt that memorable, but two songs were complete gems imo: "Driving with the top down" and "Fireman"...The scenes where Tony Stark is taking Mark 1 out for a test flight and it has "Driving with the top down" playing in the background are pure gold... The song captures the feel of the moment really well...When I listen to the song I feel like Im in the Iron Man suit flying around and having a blast.

Do you mean the Mark 2? If so, yeah I agree "Driving with the Top Down" is awesome, especially at around 1:40.
