I actually picked Death of Stalin. It is definitely virtuoso in its interpolation of Russian marches and melodies and recreating that entire sound very compellingly and accurately as well. It is a memorable score for sure and makes an impact in the film.

 

Phantom Thread also is very good and works very well in the film. But you kinda get the sense it is basically about 2 or 3 suites composed that are then applied as score throughout the film. It is a bit same-y. But still very good.

Well there's one big score missing here and it's The Last Jedi which I think the best score from 2017 by far

Other honorable mentions:

  • The Post by John Williams (the second best one in my opinion)
  • The Shape of Water by Alexandre Desplat
  • The Hitman's Bodyguard by Atli Övarsson (a great surprise both as a movie and a score)
  • Going in Style by Rob Simonsen (same as above)
  • Transformers: The Last Knight by Steve Jablonsky
  • Coco by Michael Giacchino (perhaps one of my top 3 from this composer)
  • War for the Planet of the Apes by Michael Giacchino
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming by Michael Giacchino
  • Thor: Ragnarok by Mark Mothersbaugh
  • Hostiles by Max Richter
  • Kingsman: The Golden Circle by Henry Jackman
  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle by Henry Jackman
  • Okja by Jaeil Jung
  • Ghost in the Shell by Lorne Balfe

 

[Edit] I forget some:

  • Dear Basketball by John Williams (the second best esquals with The Post)
  • A Cure for Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch
  • Three Billboards by Carter Burwell
  • Darkest Hour by Mario Marianelli
  • Murder on the Orient Express by Patrick Doyle

I have the feeling my polls are predictable and you come already prepared with your lists! hehe

The Last Jedi, followed by Spider-Man: Homecoming.

 

I also liked RGW's Wonder Woman, Tyler Bates' GOTG 2, Gia's War for the Planet of the Apes, Randy Newman's Cars 3 and Zanelli's Pirates 5.

Just get to 2019 already so I can say my Favorite is Avengers Endgame/Silvestri. 🧐

My favourite film score of 2017 is SKYGGENES DAL [VALLEY OF SHADOWS] (Zbigniew Preisner).

 

Alas, I'm not a big fan of any of the poll options, but I suppose if someone put a gun to my head, I'd say PHANTOM THREAD.

 

And yes...my podcast about the best film scores of 2017 is here.

The only other one I've heard was the Giacchino - in the film - which I think was alright and hasn't really left a trace in my memory, and I know I should really check out Greenwood someday, but my vote goes to Stalin because it's really an excellent and convincing Shostakovich pastiche.
