    I agree with The Fountain, although it is lacking in structure.

    Kingdom of Heaven by Harry Gregson-Williams

    e.g. Crusaders

    Ronin by Elia Cmiral

    e.g. The Ronin Myth

    Mononoke Hime by Joe Hisaishi

    e.g. Mononoke Hime - Vocal Ending

    I also have some favourites from my old computer games, for example:
    Planescape: Torment by Mark Morgan: Fortress of Regrets
    Icewind Dale II by Jeremy Soule: Targos Town

    Barbarian Horde (Gladiator) - Hans Zimmer
    Honor him

    Most of the Crimson Tide soundtrack - Hans Zimmer

    Most of the Black Rain soundtrack (Zimmer's first) - Hans Zimmer

    A Way of Life (Last Samurai) - Hans Zimmer
    Spectres in the Fog
    A Small Measure of Peace

    Anvil of Crom (Conan) - Pouledaris
    Riddle of Steel
    Theology/Civilization
    Theme of Love

    I took a music history class years ago and for the final paper we had to review a score/piece. Most of the students in the class picked Romantic era pieces, I chose the Conan the Barbarian film score . Got an A as well! It is the one score I wish I could claim as my own.

    I listen to film scores more than any other music. My favorite composer is James Horner, but James Newton Howard is starting to overtake him as my favorite. We will see how the Avatar soundtrack sounds. Anyway, here's some samples of my favorite scores:

    James Horner - The Portrait


    James Horner - Braveheart


    James Newton Howard - Unbreakable


    James Newton Howard - Lady In The Water


    James Newton Howard - The Village

    I liked the music from Der Untergang/Downfall, although it's a little bit sad.

    Hope At The End of the World by Stephan Zacharias


    Der Untergang - Im Hof der Reichskanzlei


    Der Untergang - Des Führers Sekretärin


    A middle aged theme I liked, from the First Knight.

    First Knight- Promise Me by Jerry Goldsmith


    From Valkyrie Soundtrack by John Ottman.

    Valkyrie Soundtrack - They'll remember you by John Ottman


    By Hans Zimmer, the soundtrack of Pearl Harbour. But I didn't like the movie very much.

    Pearl Harbor - Tennessee by Hans Zimmer

    Any Film Score By Jerry Goldsmith!

    Jerrald King "Jerry" Goldsmith (February 10, 1929 – July 21, 2004) was an American film score composer from Los Angeles, California. Goldsmith was nominated for eighteen Academy Awards (winning one, for The Omen), and also won four Emmy Awards. He worked in a wide variety of film and television genres, but is most prominently associated with action, suspense, and sci-fi/horror films.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Goldsmith#1960s







    This CD features two original soundtrack recordings by Jerry Goldsmith, the first is the first ever release of his complete score to the 1968 film PLANET OF THE APES and his 1971 sequel score for ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES...One of Hollywood's most prolific and innovative composers, Jerry Goldsmith truly surpassed anything that he had previously done with the score to the 1968 film. A groundbreakingly exciting composition, the music exudes mystery, danger, and otherworldly "terror" with its piercing strings, thunderous percussion, and simulated "ape" sounds. The music is a listener's treat to the magnificence of Goldsmith at his best. It would be several years later before he bested "Planet" with the Academy Award-winning "Omen" score and "Star Trek: the Motion Picture," both which should be included in any Goldsmith fan's audio library! This CD also contains a suite from the 1972 sequel "Escape to the Planet of the Apes," a very different of film score due to the setting of the film in contemporary America. This CD clocks in at over 70 minutes!

    Ennio Morricone, The Mission




    Theme from Midnight Express ('The Chase'), Giorgio Moroder

    1) Blade Runner (no-brainer really) - Vangelis
    2) Suspiria - Goblin
    3) Nosferatu the Vampyre - Popol Vuh
    4) The Good the Bad and the Ugly - Ennio Morricone
    5) Ghost in the Shell - Kenji Kawai
    6) Akira as mentioned above (forget the composer)
    7) Stalker (forget the composer)
    8) Tetsuo Iron Man (Der Eisenrost/Chi Ishikawa)
    9) The Thing - Ennio Morricone/John Carpenter (uncredited but the soundtrack's electronic parts are clearly rooted in JC's style)
    10) Alien - Jerry Goldsmith

    I guess I should include Conan the Barbarian - Basil Polidouris as well. Also got to say I love the 300 soundtrack, and Black Rain deserves an honourable mention as arguably the only great Hans Zimmer soundtrack (from before he just plagiarised other composers, and his own soundtracks)
