    Excellent film and score. Unfortunately, I've never heard the music outside the film, but it is certainly its own character in the film and is, as you say, hypnotic.

    I've Just added "I Am Legend"

    It was the M. Night movies that got me wanting JNH! I usually like the movie first and then consider the score

    Signs is the only one I don't have.
    And I'm trying to get Waterworld! Beautiful!

    You should definitely consider getting the score, Philip Glass shows his talent at composing music that fits so well with the montage and themes of the film.

    + WALL?E - Thomas Newman

    Thomas Newman has always been one of my favorite composers since I first got The Shawshank Redemption years ago. After seeing WALL?E today, I had to get the album. It has that unique Newman sound and the undeniable charm of WALL?E himself. Definitely a recommended purchase.

    Danny Elfman
    Wanted

    This is how you score an action flick.

    +Danny Elfman, Wanted (fine action score)
    Andrew Lockington, Journey to the Center of the Earth (fine adventure score)
    John Powell, Hancock (so-so, but the finale is excellent)

    And a lot of others. I'm working on the list.

    + The Clone Wars (last week, actually)
    + The Iron Giant

    + the entire Cloverfield score :p Okay, so it's only the Roar! Overture, but it's awesome, if purely because they had Giacchino write just an End Credits Suite that's like Godzilla (the old ones)

    and apparently I never added the Return of the King Complete Recordings when I got them in December

    As we say in JCC: This.


    edit: never added the Transformers McScore, but I only really listen to it when I'm playing TF2 - random action background noise FTW!

    What do you think about Hancock? I don't like it much at all save for the final two tracks which are excellent.

    I pretty much agree with you on Hancock. It's full of Powell-isms (and more than a few Elfman-isms) which makes it somewhat enjoyable but I much prefer his work on X-Men to this.

    Speed Racer, however, is fantastic. I wasn't too thrilled with Giacchino for a while there, but Ratatouille and now this score have definitely sold me on him. I am very much looking forward to his score for Star Trek.

    Kevin Riepl
    Gears of War

    Jack Wall and Sam Hulick
    Mass Effect


    Two video game soundtracks that are superior to many (if not most) recent film scores.

    I haven't heard Gears of War, but I'm glad you like Mass Effect. Although quite different from Blade Runner in many respects, the types of electronics and the way they're used really reminded by of that score when I was playing the game (and album).

    Blade Runner was the exactly what I thought of when I first heard the music and it works really well in the game.

    And I really recommend Gears of War. It's full of really badass action music that isn't totally brainless.
