Theater Thursday

This week's questions are about movie soundtracks.
1) What is your favorite soundtrack from a movie?
Orchestral is probably 2001: A Space Odyssey. Pop-style is probably Magnolia. I know I've mentioned both of those before. Sorry for the lack of ingenuity.

2) Which movie's soundtrack didn't fit the tone of the movie, or was so badly composed it detracted from the movie?
I can't say that it really wasn't consistent with the rest of the film, but the whole That Thing You Do! phenomenon really annoyed me. The music actually made the character played by Tom Everett Scott much more sympathetic as he grew distant from the fluffiness of it all.

3) Who is your favorite film music composer?
Eh...you really can't go wrong with John Williams. He sort of made modern film scoring what it is today.
BONUS) Do you prefer an orchestral soundtrack, or a popular-music soundtrack? Why?
It depends upon whether you mean to listen to by itself or as a part of the film. Obviously, orchestral scores are little more difficult to enjoy on their own, but they are usually less intrusive and more cinematic as part of the film. If I'm going to put one in the CD player to listen to on a roadtrip, though, it's going to be something with 3-minute songs that have lyrics and guitars. Or keytars. Cause I rock the suburbs.
