Only heard Soul and Wolfwalkers, and would go Soul (although both are v. Good).  I’ll let somebody remind me what other movies came out last year before I throw in the non-poll honorable mentions.

I'll say WW84 just because it was very nice to see Zimmer coming back to more orchestral score like he used to do in the 90's and 2000's

Other great scores from that year:

  • Call of the Wild by John Powell (almost as good as WW84)
  • Soul by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross & Jon Batiste (same as above)
  • News of the World by JNH (although I don't know if it counts as a 2021 score, f^$ù%!g covid)
  • Over the Moon by Steven Price (not great but considering the year, it's a worth listening score)
  • Le Prince Oublié by Howard Shore
  • Bloodshot by Steve Jablonsky (again not great but with some nice action cues)

My favourite film score of 2020 was BLOOD MACHINES (Carpenter Brut).

 

My favourite of the poll options is FUKUSHIMA 50, which clocked in at my 9th place last year.

 

My other favourites, most of them under-the-radar affairs, in this podcast episode.

WW84 easily. Was listening to the SKETCHES album today which is great.

If 2020 was a black hole of new music releases you didn't look well enough. I listened to soo much new music last year. Not everything was good but a lot of hidden gems that were brought to my attention because a lot of the larger scores of big movies were delayed

This poll, I wish to remind you, contains only the Winners according to the three Critics guilds mentionned above.

 

It's only a starting point to discuss... but, well, it gives also hints about scores of interrest for the year, for those who want to discover new music... :-)

I mean lord knows my tastes are not very sophisticated.. and I didnt see that many new things, outside of Tenet and Enola Holmes (which I enjoyed well enough)

I did like WW84, but I am not gonna watch that movie..

Clearly WW84, from a very objective pov. 

 

It's easy to be objective when you weren't involved.

The movie is indeed woeful, but Zimmer's score works really well in context. It's a bad movie made better by the score.

It's no surprise that a bad score complements a bad movie.

You haven't even heard the score, how can you say it's bad?
