Re: Film Music
Well, just like bands, it's hard for me to pick a favorite. However, one that really sticks out is 'The Hills Have Eyes' soundtrack. I watched it a few months ago. It was perfect for the film. It was very minimal, and very character driven. Quite an usual soundtrack as well- not your usual orchestral work (not that I don't love those too, cuz I do).
For me, it was in the same vein as the Alien soundtracks. I love the strange stuff. I also love just about anything Danny Elfman does.
