    Okay, just as with James Horner, I have caught John Murphy reusing notable cues.

    The ones i ran across involved 28 Weeks Later, Sunshine, and Kick-Ass, two separate cues each used (with slight modification, but obviously not even near enough to result in me not noticing) in at least two of the movies in that selection, and maybe more if I'd scan each movie in its entirety. It was bad enough that I didn't even realize he did all three of those movies until I recalled the similarity of the cues and looked him up at IMDB.
    .
    I'd have to rewatch 28 Days Later to see if he does it there.

    I actually liked the cues, it's just that they were pretty memorable scenes. (The intro zombie chase in 28WL matches the Big Daddy-Kicks-Warehouse scene in K-A... the Suited-Capa-trying-to-beat-timer in Sunshine matches Hit Girl saving BD and KA in K-A... and others as well.)

    I don't know many of the names in this thread- at some point I'll probably go down a Google rabbit-hole checking them out.

    But for me- Thomas Newman is my favorite. I came to him through American Beauty and Six Feet Under, but I also LOVE his Pixar scores.

    I also like David Arnold who does the music for the BBC Sherlock series, and after I looked him up I found that he did a lot of Bond soundtracks I liked as well. I think some (not all) of his stuff can tend to feel dated after a while but it's very exciting while it's current.

    Oh- and by way of a PS, Morricone is amazing, and Mancini is also fun.

    I tend to like Newman's Six Feet Under and American Beauty stuff better, but he's still good... Did we skip over him elsewhere in the thead? I don't remember....

    HAHA!! love this^^

    My favorite is John Williams. Zimmer did some good things.
    Williams liberally 'borrowed' his best film music from Prokofiev, Stravinski and Rachmaninof. Not melodies, but orchestration techniques. The scene when the droids are walking around on Tatuine(sp): straight outa Russian music.
    So go and listen to the originals.

    Thomas Newman is my favorite composer ever. His music is both grand and introspective.
    The only way out is through. The faster you're in, the better.
