bradcam72 -> Down With The Kids Award (20/5/2013 2:15:17 PM)

"An earworm in hi-tops scratched out between takes..."

klepto4 -> A few others perhaps? (20/5/2013 4:06:04 PM)

Gladiator was a biggy probably overshadowed by LotR. There were obviously others but not sure if they made an amazing impact, but I'll mention them anyway:- The Island, 28 Days/Weeks Later, Man on Fire + Transformers and Casino Royale at a push, there were others with some wicked tunes in but how much they defined the naughties is erm slim. Glad Sunshine made it though, that was terrific

klepto4 -> My Bad (20/5/2013 4:11:44 PM)

Ooops 28 days/weeks later did get a mention, so scrub them, but they were good

megamajestic -> Loves a Beach (20/5/2013 7:25:04 PM)

what about Amores Perros??? it has a hugely enjoyable soundtrack and Gustavo Santaolallo best work to date.

kasr -> Um, James Newton Howard? (21/5/2013 1:14:05 AM)

Isn't James Newton Howard also responsible for The Dark Knight soundtrack? And Batman Begins?

deredder -> LOTR (21/5/2013 7:22:21 AM)

I thought the Two Towers soundtrack was better than Fellowship. Obviously the main themes returned but Shore expanded on them wonderfully and really managed to evoke a living, breathing Middle Earth for this difficult 'middle' movie. Also... Punch Drunk Love should be on this list IMO.

burtbondy -> Inception (21/5/2013 11:21:31 AM)

Nolan has to have a constant tone buzzing through the move because he cant direct or create tension to save his life.

TPM007 -> The Bourne Supremacy (21/5/2013 12:02:22 PM)

Not only a superb score, but the amount of Powell-esq rhythms from other films of similar genre seem to take inspiration from this series.

osh man -> The Fountain, Solaris, (21/5/2013 6:59:35 PM)

Eternal Sunshine, A Desplat score like birth or Benji Button, Anchorman.

osh man -> The Fountain, Solaris, (21/5/2013 7:08:03 PM)

Eternal Sunshine, A Desplat score like birth or Benji Button, Anchorman.

millwall121 -> NO GLADIATOR?!?! (22/5/2013 3:57:59 PM)

Hans Zimmer's score for gladiator should be included with tracks such as Now We Are Free with Lisa Gerard and Elysium.

fang -> THE FOUNTAIN (24/5/2013 7:57:10 PM)

It's lack of inclusion here is borderline criminal.

TheoJ -> STAR TREK???!!!! (29/5/2013 11:20:09 AM)

Where in God's Name is Michael Giacchino's Star Trek score?
It was incredibly original with echoes of Courage's and Goldmsith's works.
Esp the new theme, end credits and hell bar talk!!!!

claireangela -> (500) days of summer! (29/5/2013 7:16:24 PM)

It had Hall and Oates on it...emough said!

jshchm -> (30/5/2013 12:39:33 AM)

I completely agree with TheoJ - Giacchino's work on Star Trek was some of his best to date and was only beaten by his work on Up (which, thankfully, is on this list). I personally think Return of the King was the best soundtrack out of the three LOTR films, but one thing I do not understand is the lack of Harry Potter - sure it's not oscar-worthy, but Williams yet again composed some of the most memorable themes in film history and it would be ridiculous to ignore 6 films worth of spell-binding (excuse the pun) and down-right spectacular musical scores.

adamfripp -> Let The Right One In (31/5/2013 9:56:50 AM)

I would've liked to see a mention of Johan Söderqvist's score for 'Let The Right One In' - I thought that was one of the best of recent years.

oliraceking -> Gladiator (31/5/2013 5:20:55 PM)

Gladiator is the main omission here - like at the Oscars CTHD won the Oscar, but Gladiator won the audience affection.

NeoBrowser -> RE: (5/6/2013 9:34:41 AM)

Notably missing:

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (better soundtrack than Fellowship or King)
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
The Matrix Reloaded
Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Star Wars - Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
Pirates of the Caribbean (any of them)
Batman Begins

About half of these shouldn't even be here!

btricks -> Wonderful work but may I just say... (7/6/2013 11:06:54 AM)

Where might Gladiator be?! I must say this is a fantastic compilation of decade defining soundtracks so first of all kudos to all the empire crew for that but seriously Gladiator is a much needed addition to this list. I also think 500 Days of Summer is an uplifting, appropriate choice. But hey, they're all good. Great list guys.

iainjames -> honourable mention (14/6/2013 7:37:45 AM)

I would personally include the soundtrack to A Single Man in this list.
