    John Barry's soundtrack to 'The Black Hole' in the late seventies - I still listen to it now, great stuff.

    Film was OK too.

    Hans Zimmer did a blinder of a job with this from Hannibal...

    Gladiator would've been a bit staid without his contribution too.

    But the boss has to be Ennio Morricone, and I'd pick this from Once Upon a Time in the West..

    Good call on wes Anderson - I watched Rushmore the other week and was struck by the excellence of the soundtrack.

    Thats reminded me that John Carpenter released an album the other day of non film music which I meant to get when I first heard about it but I forgot.

    Crazy Clown Time. It's very reminiscent of the Angelo Badalamenti scores for his films. Worth a listen, though I haven't yet managed to get all the way through it yet. He once described to Badalamenti that he wanted a cue to sound like big blocks of rubber and that describes it quite well.

    Never seen either film, but Shaft and Superfly by Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield respectively are both stunning albums.

    Thanks, I think we got that you like that one. It's well put together, but I don't care that much for soundtracks made up of mostly well known tracks. The film is so shit that it put me off the album, which I got before I saw it.

    I think some of the soundtracks for the films Tarantino actually directed are more interesting.

    The cull? A moment of realization is worth a thousand prayers.

    I disagree.

    Repetition works, David. Repetition works, David.

    realization that you are a blight and need exterminating for your erroneous views on film soundtracks, I'd say thats worth a bullet in the head (yours) instead of a thousand prayers.
