    Best of 2005

    Now, looking back at the movies released in 2005, what do you think are the most prominent soundtracks? I'd probably say that I really enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire, and (how can I forget?) Revenge of the Sith.

    I liked "History of Violence" and of cause "Harry Potter".

    Don´t know about the soundtrack part, not every movie have great songs - I don´t pay enough attention to the soundtracks...

    What to say for me.. If it's in the cinema I can only say Herry Potter, because it was the only movie I saw there.. If it's over-all I really liked Nordkraft, the story of the movie were fantastic..

    I would also agree with Alex saying Narnia, Harry Potter and Revenge of te Sith. These movie were awesome and their soundtrack was totally fantastic, great orchestration. I am not surprised by The Revenge of the Sith since John Williams composed them. What I am the most surprised is that he (John Williams) didn't composed anything for Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire.. However, Jarvis Cocker did a great job I think. Finaly, The Chronicle of Narnia score was great but this is not suprising me either because Harry Gregson-Williams composed them. I think it enters his hall of fame with The Rock which I personally loved too.

    I think Episode III ("Star Wars") was one of the best as well. I am a major "Star Wars" and John Williams fan. I believe the score for this film was really outstanding. Very emotional and haunting.

    I also felt "Batman Begins" should recieve some attention. It was very true to the original themes presented in the earlier films, yet with the two composers, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, they really gave this new installment a good twist. I rather enjoyed the new themes.

    You are right about Batman Begins, it is a pretty good score too. I wonder why I haven't think about it! I love Hans Zimmer, hes one of my favorite score composer aswell.

    I thought others might agree. The two composers are incredibly talented.

    As for Grammy news! John Williams picks up a few nods for Epiosde III ("Star Wars") and a nod for a piece from "War of the Worlds"! Be sure to tune into the telecast on February 8th on CBS!

    I agree with "Batman Begins". The music really helped illustrate the movie, instead of taking away from it.
