Gabriel Yared is I think the best composer currently working. Primarily his work for director Anthony Minghella. The English Patient with its blend of traditional epic film music and the Egyptian/African elements, The Talented Mr. Ripley and the point/counterpoint between classical and jazz styles, and the very understated work in Cold Mountain which accompanied the folk material (epecially the beautiful piano piece that is the signature music from the film).

I'd also like to second the mention of Ennio Morricone. His stuff for Sergio Leone is great, as well as some of the more recent scores (Bugsy, Lolita, Legend of 1900). While much of it sounds the same, it's always great.

One last mention for Michael Nyman, who made a name for himself with his score for The Piano. One of my favorites is his work on Neil Jordan's The End of the Affair. Extremely moving music.

"Gladiator" by Hans Zimmer
If you like "Gladiator" listen to "Pirates of the Carribean" in places it is virtually identical. Composed by Klaus Badelt a protegee of Zimmer, the story is that Zimmer did most of the work, but couldn't take credit as he was attached to another film at the time.

Anyways, I love James Newton Howard, John Williams, Danny Elfman (Big Fish was amazing!), and Howard Shore. I know a bunch of people trying to get into that business, USC has a Film Scoring program, and it is crazy.

Possibly my favorite movie soundtrack of all time


Followed closely by The Hours


And I count Mozart's Requiem as a film score because of it's association with Amadeus... but it's really not a film score... but it's my absolute favorite classical work

I love the score from Romeo + Juliet (Nellee Hooper, Craig Armstrong etc) and tend to like the projects which James Newton Howard and Yann Tiersen undertake. I like Danny Elfman, but only own the Edward Scissorhands soundtrack by him.
you need to get the " music for a darkened theater" cd's, they are of all Danny Elfman scores.
