    Okay. In all fairness, the music in Grease is probably one of the most respected and recognized compilation of pieces of music in showbiz. Grease is a cultural phenomenon, and you can't be a film fan or musical fan without acknowleding the marriage of the two.

    On the other hand, the music of O Brother Where Art Thou is also very well done, and takes the film to a whole new level. Whether you like it or not, the score for O Brother is another brilliant accomplishment. Especially since this film is an adaptation of one of Shakespeare's plays which in turn was an adaptation of The Odyssey.

    As far as adaptations in musicals go, I think Moulin Rouge is probably on top of this list as well. As a person who was adamently against this film in high school because I couldn't stand that song with Aguilara in it, I was quickly converted into a fan after actually watching the film. I was impressed that McGregor can actually sing, and the rest of the covers in the film were greatly worked into the storyline.

      did i mention Batman Begins or The Dark Knight scores? wow.


      and also the Transformers score effing owns (not the soundtrack, the score).

      if there's one thing Steve Jablonsky knows how to do, it's make a kick ass action movie score. And he even "borrowed" some inspiration from Zimmer's Batman score for Transformers.

      I always joke that Transformers is an ode to Batman. You have Bumblebee using a spotlight to signal Optimus and Co. with the Autobot logo shining into the heavens.

      then Optimus shows up and he's got "bat ears" hahahahaha.

      also when Optimus and Megatron go flying through the office building in slow motion, that's some straight up Terminator score nodding right there.

          Can anyone help me out?

          I was wondering if anyone knows the title of the music in American Gangster, awesome movie btw, its near the end and it plays after Frank says he wants some holy water, and it continues up until Frank is released from prison.

          Sorry I kno, kinda specific but Ive been looking at the tracks on Itunes and none of them seem to have it.

          Its an awesome movie with a great soundtrack but that particular music is my favorite just because it gives a great sound and feel to the scene of explaining everything that happens after the conviction.

              Basically any score by Hans Zimmer.

              man there are just too many that I love so much...

              http://www.myspace.com/gunslingerscore

              Hans Zimmer-didnt he do the Spirit soundtrack with Brian Adams? That was a good one.

              Mark Knopfler has done some good ones-Princess Bride and Local Hero if anyone knows those from a few years back.

                    Howard Shore truly created one of the all time best scores in the history of film with LOTR. It's one of my favorites.

                                Oh yea, how could I forget Mamma Mia!
                                Originally a broadway musical based on the music of ABBA.
                                The new movie version has songs sung by the actors in the film. Meryl Streep deserves an oscar!
