Your favourite movie and television sountracks?
It's really good if you've actually read the original Oz books by L. Frank Baum. I went into it (I believe I was in seventh grade), thinking I would be getting a lame MGM Oz spin-off, instead I got a dark, more serious, and more faithful to the books movie (it's a combination of the second and third books).I understand that Harlan Ellison considered it underrated, even at the time, so you are not alone. It is one of those films that I will have to sit down and watch properly myself.
Obscure soundtracks I often hear:They will never make the majority of top ten lists, but what film scores - or even individual tracks - from a relatively overlooked or obscure film score would you hold up as worthy of a listen?
Since one is allowed only 5 embedded media, I add the examples for the last four soundtracks here and add one of my other favourites soundtracks.
The score for Young Sherlock Holmes is pretty good. I seriously wish that movie was canon with the original Arthur Conan Doyle's books, but the very first story (A Study in Scarlet) prevents that from being a thing. Sad, because this feels like a very plausible origin story.
