    Jerry Goldsmith and Graeme Revell are two of my favorite compsers.

    Revells the Crow score is amazing and i love his work on Sin City. the late great Goldsmiths missed Legend Score was just to beautiful to be passed up.

    what score is that?

    lately iv been listening to the V for Vendetta score. to its like the Vengence movie of this decade. like the Crow was for the 90's. both scores are similar to me in ways. which is a really good thing.

    Also, the score to Total Recall was trashed, but I think it's pretty good.

    Michael Kamen's score for the first X-Men. I rarely read reviews where they comment on a film's score to begin with, and I was surprised that so many reviews mention Kamen's and how they thought it was boring. I loved it. I thought everyone had a very distinct theme, and the piece that plays at the end when Wolverine frees Rogue, very moving and fitting for the scene. It captures the emotion very well(concern, desperation, sadness, surprise, fear; in that order as based on the scene).

    yeah, I like X-men, particularly the Logan and Rogue theme.
    But I have to also mention one of the Might Ducks sequels, maybe D2. That score was great. The Speed score was great too by Mancina.

    See, I always thought James Horner's score for the Star Trek films were underated. Everyone mentions Aliens, but since Horner and Cameron had such a tough time working together, alot of the themes from Aliens came from his Star Trek score.
