Lol that necrobump.

Really?

I love how the OP is both still active and replied to the bump but also did so in a way which made it seem like no time at all had passed xD



Lot of great options. Morricone and Michael Nyman are among my favorites.



Hans Zimmer hands down. Inception's final sequence is one of the greatest cinematic moments in recent history, and Time helps a lot with that.

Feu James Horner.

Glory is my second favorite movie score from the 80s after Once Upon a Time in America.   Like most of his other scores also Braveheart is great and House of Sand and Fog is very underrated.

When it comes to his scores for sci-fi movies I prefer his score for Interstellar over Inception.  2013 was probably his best year so far, loved his scores for Rush, 12 Years a Slave and Man of Steel.  I even forgive him for doing the score for the aweful Bible mini series that year.



It's Zimmer....man. It's gotta be him.

Interstellar was terrific too, just thinking about it makes me tear up a bit.

Single work would be Yann Tiersen.

Over all it is hard for me to ignore John Williams. I hum one of his tunes few times every week.

The soundtrack to "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulin" is just fantastic.

Favorite movie soundtrack by a lesser known movie composer would have to be either Letters from Iwo Jima by Kyle Eastwood and Michael Stevens or Crouching, Tiger, Hidden Dragon by Tan Dun.
