Christopher Young remains my personal Fav. I love his orchestration and his use of dark themes/melodies. Ages ago he did a soundtrack for a movie called JENNIFER 8 which I only learned about a bit ago. It's my Fav movie soundtrack. Killer Cello! Very subtle stuff though.




He has done TONS of movies including big Hollywood Comic Book flicks as well as small movies. The smaller ones are usually more interesting to me in terms of score. BIG scores can be a bit predictable.

Here he is on IMDB with a list of everything he ever did.

Ennio Morricone in my opinion is the best. plus I would check Nino Rota. But these are a bit different from the ones mentioned above. Should be my age!

He's had a few movies that he had songs in. Saw 2, Mortal Kombat, Power Rangers, and more.



My fav composer would be Danny Elfman he reminds me of Danny Lohner with his style/sound. After that I have to go with John Williams.

Puh, difficult to chose between Zimmer, Desplat, Williams and Shore (wah I LOVE LoR-Soundtrack!!!)
Instead I'll go for Yann Tiersen, very simple, but very touching music!

yeah! I forgot Tiersen because I don't relate him too much to movies but he is an awesome composer. His music is so deep. I could see him here in a live concert and it was really cool. He did a rock concert where he played electric guitar and sang but he didn't forgot to take his accordion and play Amelie main theme. smile.gif

Yep, think he composed for "Amelie" as well as the German film "Goodbye Lenin". Ah, I've seen some vids where he played electric guitar, some nice songs, but he's best when he plays the piano smile.gif I really like this improvisation:

You guys should also listen to the complete soundtrack of 'Zorba the Greek' - I dont quite remember the name of the composer but the soundtrack is awesome - it sounds primitive and deep, beautiful and sunny tongue.gif try it!
