I decided to start up this thread after watching (for about the sixth time) one of my favourite films: 'Blade Runner'.
What really strikes me is the quality of the composition from Vangelis. It works on many levels. The main theme for instance is very tense and locomotive, but this is in stark contrast to the majority of the film; where the music is somewhat subdued. Even twenty odd years later, the synthesised sounds don't appear dated, a bit of a feat considering the instrumentation. It's also rather refreshing for a film of that era not to have the obligatory 'New Hollywood' orchestral score.
What's your favourite music from film and why?
