    @Barneyonmovies Well when we're going into film scores. That's a totally different beast. I'll be back with my list.

    @TheFilmRascalShow Yeah I jut took the word soundtrack to mean all, but I guess score is more specific to what I was saying!!

    @Barneyonmovies

    In that case, let's start with a sample of some of my favorites:

    • "Rudy", Jerry Goldsmith
    • "Batman Returns", Danny Elfman
    • "Ruby Sparks", Nick Urata
    • "The Kingdom", Danny Elfman
    • "Superman: The Movie", John Williams
    • "The Hateful Eight", Ennio Morricone

    Man, there are too many film scores to list.

    @TheFilmRascalShow Haha so true there are so many great ones! Slightly easier question - what are your favourites scores of 2016 so far?

    @Barneyonmovies Favorite scores of 2016? Hmm. To be honest, there really hasn't been anything that stands out. I don't think I saw any film that has a score that'll be immortalized. Everything is so generic.

    @TheFilmRascalShow I think there's been some good stuff in there; I'd recommend listening to Nocturnal Animals or Hell or High Water - they're both incredible. Some other favourites for me were High Rise, Magnificent 7 and X-Men Apocalypse!

    @Barneyonmovies Ok, so the first film (at least for me) to have a memorable film score and one that actually stood out as I was watching the movie, is James Newton Howard's score to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

    @TheFilmRascalShow Agreed, that's also a brilliant score

    @Barneyonmovies I loved the score for Arrival in 2016. The director and composer are teaming up again for Blade Runner: 2049, so I'm really excited for that.

    Definitely sing street and La La Land for me. Still angry Sing Street didn't even get nominated @SceneItReviews

    Goodfellas also has an amazing soundtrack.
