Movies with great musical scores - Page 3

post #31 of 58
Thread Starter 
I've got plenty of reccomendations now, thansk again everybody. Going to do my best to watch as many of these as possible even though I don't need to. Since it seems like a lot of you guys dig the subject, let's talk about specific scenes. I've only had one class by my teacher spoke of a boxing movie where it opened with a match, but a very serene (classical music?) song was playing in the background. Sounds like an awesome scene.

I like the forrest gump soundtrack but that could really just be a best of "**'ies". Last movie i saw with a good soundtrack was Inglourious Basterds, i think movie soundtracks need to be able to heighten the sense of the scene, not so much the music has to be good in itself.

"The Sweet Smell of Success", from the late 1950s. An Elmer Bernstein score, with some jazz performances by the Chico Hamilton Quintet.

Pre-1970, The Good the Bad and the Ugly - Ennio Morricone(sp?)

so classic it's ridiculous.


post-1970, Reservoir Dogs - various

I love the way Tarentino uses music in his films. He scours long lost and unknown gems. He's kind of broken some unwritten rules for film music such a using music from other films in a very different way.

I need one pre-1970 and one post-1970.

Since I'm young I'm going to need help from you movie buffs and old-timers on some reccomendations to watch.

Pre: North by Northwest -- classic Herrmann
Post: Cinema Paradiso -- classic Morecone

You can write sheets and sheets about the significance of these two scores.

Might be cheating, but "Round midnight" has good music. "Godfather" too. As far as modern "Pulp Fiction" has a very good one.

"tarantino" basically. The class sounds like a blast, might have a look for similar stuff in area.

A couple of ideas for pre-1970. Touch of Evil has a score that's very well integrated with the film, as I recall. Also, and this is the one you should do, Juliet of the Spirits (Fellini). It might be fun to pick a totally cheesy movie like Tarzan or Charlie Chan. The scores probably speak volumes about racial attitudes at the time.

For pre-1970, Blowup by Antonioni: music by Herbie Hancock. Or Ascenseur pour l'echafaud if you like Miles Davis. For post-1970, I'd say Amélie. That's an example of a movie that relies heavily on the atmosphere given by music.
