"The score to Blade Runner evokes the imagery of dew particles reverberating off the back of a dinosaur on a cold winter night"

 

Dammit, why did you tease us like that!? 

 

My friend six years ago showed me this one Pitchfork review, oh my god it was hilarious--I think it was a John Coltrane album or something. It was so strained with stupid, "evocative" metaphors, someone actually animated it, complete with douchey narration. I wish I could find it again.

Won't ever understand people's need to rank and list things.  Who cares.

Yeah, me too.  Allow me to list why from weakest to strongest reason.

5. Takes too long to work through.

4. Numbers can be confusing.

3. I got your list right here.

2. Williams is better than Morricone.

1. What were we talking about?

Not a single Hans Zimmer score. JWFan should be over the moon for this list!

 

Interstellar should be there in that list. And Hansu was robbed by the academy, that laughable score by mediocre desplat won. And now he has two of them, ridiculous.

This lists are always subjective and never get everyone happy but I felt ashamed with some of the inclusions. Clearly they are thinking more in "music inside a movie" than a proper score. And you can tell that someone is trying hard to pretend being smart when they add to one of this lists 'Solaris'. I mean, is a great movie, but is quite hard to consider the music from Eduard Artemiev as a masterpiece.
