^ Love A3, I think it's superior to Resurrection as entertaining as that movie is.   Prometheus left me flat, however.

Prometheus was a solid movie. It just had some glaringly bad moments (and a silly closing scene).

'Big Chill' and 'Forest Gump' have nice soundtracks if you are into 60's pop, rock,  and soul.
Also 'Dazed and Confused ' and 'Until the End of the World'.

I'd probably go with this, watched it again not long ago and its an entertaining film although not as good obviously as the film that 'inspired' it. Its a 'popcorn movie'. 
The first film is a classic , the sequel is overrated (imo) and David Fincher tried to bring back the claustophobia of the original only partially succeeding but a good effort nevertheless. The film company wanted Danny Boyle to direct the forth but sadly he turned them down.

Bernard Herrmann's "Vertigo" soundtrack is awesome.

Prepare yourselves for one of the most mesmerizing Goldsmith cues ever, from the beloved '70s SF campfest Damnation Alley. "After The Holocaust" combines a stark electronic aspect with an already unsettling theme, and the tandem of organic and synthetic is wonderfully effective. Not a complex piece of music, either, which is part of the magic.

^ I love descriptive music, such an under-appreciated form.

I like his Sci-Fi, Adventure film soundtrax a lot better.
 
Get the album with them, and listen to it, and then go see the films without the music, by turning the sound down. It's not the same thing, and comes off, missing something!
 
His Hitchcock soundtracks are not as good as the ones in these films, mostly because Alfred always cut the amount of music down to small amounts, and while still effective, in the end, the other films allowed the music to take it away some, and enjoyed stratching the moments with it. I simply find, the adventure films more fun to watch and hear, than most Hitchcock films!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Hi,
 
Some names in soundtracks to watch and listen to:
 
Gabriel Yared
Riuychi Sakamoto (so many and an Oscar)
Maurice Jarre
Nino Rota
 
I would like to name a couple of others in Chinese films, Japanese films and some others, but I have to look at my 500 film reviews to get them. It all depends on how the music is used, and if the director appreciates the music, it will make the film better, for my tastes.
 
Sidebar: You would figure that Martin Scorcese would know something about using music when he directs, but in the end he doesn't. And he was one of the cinematographers at the Woodstock film/festival, so you could say he never heard the music, or knew what he was shooting? Weird!

He turned in a superb melodic electronic score for Gandahar aka Light Years. Was that ever issued on CD?
