Low Down: Choose one thing from each year from 2000 to 2009, be it a film, a TV show, a radio show, a particular episode of a TV or radio show, a piece of theater, a book, a comic, a song, an album, a gig, a piece of artwork, something online or something else entirely, and then tell us what you love about it.--------------------------------------------------
Now I have been racking my brain on what direction I should go, because if you know I never do anything that is normal. I try to find the twist and turn, some kind of angle... I am pleased to present my list of Noughties...
My choices for the top epic soundtrack scores for each year, now [for those who don't know] the score is the just the music that helps the film along. Not to be confused with the soundtrack that features songs that help new artist get recognized with a few classic songs... mostly re-done classics. I went with "EPIC" film scores, because they are mostly films you have heard of and represent a larger scale budget. I am a fan of score music and have large variety of musical taste, so these are my choices.
Just a couple things you might want to know on some of the choices that I have made that if you were to want any of these scores. Starting with the "Lord of the Rings" series, they are all available in huge "Expanded" versions and two more versions that Howard Shore released (Lord of the Rings Symphony and Book: Music of The Lord of the Rings Films). Second "Superman Returns" may not be the best film out there, but John Ottman's vision is great and the way he incorporates in John Williams themes.
Third the score for "Transformers" was not mass produced so it is a little hard to find for a descent price, but it is one of the best of the three films. Forth "The Incredible Hulk" is like one of the first "CDR" released scores, I believe there might be regular printed versions... I have never seen it. Last "Star Trek" it also comes as a single Cd and as a "Expanded" edition and represents many of the original score and incorporates some great epic themes.
Now you may be wondering where "Harry Potter" is or how come "Pearl Harbor" are not in this list... I agree "Harry Potter" should be here, but this is the overall list from me. I hope you enjoyed it, samples of each of the scores is on Amazon... I encourage you to check them out.
