Tron Legacy (2010)
'Tron Legacy' is still till this day, one of my favorite films. Not that it had some fantastic evolving plot or Oscar level acting. What made this film stand apart from others was its amazing soundtrack, scored by the one and only Daft Punk. The soundtrack for 'Tron Legacy' seemed to fit so well, it was as if the fictional world created by Kevin Flynn, spawned the music itself. In my opinion, the music from 'Legacy' carried the film to a level it wouldn't have reached with a mediocre sound.
The Dark Knight (2008)
When 2008 hit us with the surprise of Heath Ledger staring as the Joker in the upcoming 'Dark Knight,' no one expected he would leave us speechless with his Oscar worthy performance. Another thing fans didn't expect was how the amazing soundtrack scored by the legendary Hans Zimmer would lift the movie to new heights.
Star Wars: Episode III (2005)
'Star Wars' Episode I, II, and III have been met with harsh criticism over the years. Its over use of CGI and over the top acting have been the apparent downfall of the franchise. Yet, I still find the movies to be amazing. The story of the rise of Darth Vader is one that had to be told, and gave us our first real glimpse into the man behind the dark helmet. But what really drove these movies to box office success..? Well the "Star Wars" name of course. But I feel the return of John Williams to score the soundtrack pushed these movies to the next level. John Williams composed the soundtracks and the London Symphony Orchestra performed them. Take a listen below to one of the most dramatic yet amazing soundtracks in cinema history.
Last but not least. The 90's belong to Batman. Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson set the stage for the modern era of Superhero films with 'Batman' back in 1989. Michael Keaton followed up with 'Batman Returns' in 1992. One thing both these films had in common, other than Tim Burton was his long time pal and musical genius, Danny Elfman. Elfman has composed multiple soundtracks for Burton films such as 'Beetlejuice,' 'Edward Scissorhands,' 'charlie and The Chocolate Factory' and 'Nightmare Before Christmas.' Any of these soundtracks would make your day. But check out the Sndtrk for 'Batman' below.
