Today, I've heard two waltzes from mid-80s scores that have reminded me a lot of Ravel's work and I didn't know if these scores just had generic waltz music that everybody wrote a century prior to that or if it could directly be attributed to Ravel. For instance, there was a track on XM from The Adventures of Baron Munchausen by Michael Kamen that sounded like it was inspired by Ravel's "La Valse." Then just now, I was listening to "The Dress Waltz" by Jerry from Legend and I got the same feeling. Anybody else see it?

Yes, me!

The Bolero sex scene in TEN is the only Ravel I remember in films.k.m.

Well, it was more of an anti-sex scene. Really unclimactic, if you know what I mean. Very funny movie nevertheless.

And Bolero is by far the most interesting piece Ravel ever penned. The rest of his stuff is drivel.
