    I also think it might be a better score all round in S:TM compared with ANH.

    And also a better movie. [​IMG]

    Seriously? Superman better than ANH?? You are brave enough to say that on a SW forum?:eek:
    Just kidding. To each his own of course. Personally I prefer SW, though I did enjoy Superman and its soundtrack when it came out. But I'm not much of a superhero person, that's why this kind of movie never appealed to me much.

    Me neither. Not by any means. (Ok. I will tune in to watch Bill Bixby transform whenever TIH is repeated on TV).

    It's more a religious epic in my book.

    OK... why not. I never saw it that way myself but it's a good thing we all like different things in movies and interpret them in different ways. I prefer a forum with diversity of opinion anytime over a bunch of hardcore fans who all like the same things and always agree on everything. I enjoy reading different and even controversial opinions and world views, and I even learn from them. And I like exchanging views with other open-minded people. ;)

    Muppet Treasure Island, scored by Hans Zimmer. The man has a real flair for pirate music.

    Every time a Marvel Cinematic Universe film starts the logo appears with a great score, which gets me even more pumped for the film, so I'll have to go with that. But if we're including TV shows, then Game of Thrones takes it easily!

    I know I posted my favorites on here before-having started this thread, but I've now taken the time to actually track down actual examples of my favorites:

    For specifically the opening score of the film (referencing the thread title)? Interesting. That would be the first time I'd seen the opening scores for TOD and KOTCS listed...

    Point of clarification, the "Prologue" for Harry Potter 1 is not used in the film. The Arrival of Baby Harry is the opening score for the film. And a whopping great track it is.
