    You've. Got. To. Be. Fucking. Kidding.

    Mmm. Yes. Many of them! Hence why they are in my top 10!
    I'm gonna just throw 'Fight For Glory' out there. It always gets me pumped up.

  • On the Magic of Movie Music

    20 May 2008, 12:32 by Antraetan

    Let us take a small, quiet moment in our busy lives and consider soundtracks. I just love ‘em; don’t you? And I do not mean those song compilations (which I consider marketing scams), but the real symphonic accompaniment to motion pictures.

    Whenever I watch a new movie, a small piece of my brain stands on the alert for a memorable piece of new music. Sometimes I keep whistling a melody when I walk out of the cinema and it just wont go away. Often, when I step on my bike or on the train I choose a melody in my internal jukebox and let it enlighten my trip. It is an important part of my life.

    Ok, enough about me. Let’s talk about some composers and their work. I do have some favourite composers and favourite pieces of music (who doesn’t?) but pointing out definitive favourites on some objective scale is always hard—indeed perhaps impossible, so let me just say that I will not make a list of best composers or best cues (this time, that is), but just talk of their wonders.

    John Williams

    Tak. Konečně je nás víc než 10 (ehm, je nás 11) a všichni jsme nadržení na statistiky. AViP divoce protáčí Planety, snad aby kompenzoval milovníky popu a metalu, kterých je mezi námi až nezdravě moc :) Jdu mu pomoct nějakým pěkným soundtrackem, mohl by fungovat Jerry Goldsmith :)

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture
