"The English Patient" ranks as one of the worst movies to win Best Picture Oscar, but the score is quite good.

Have to go with STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE.

I'll always say, the Cast together again and Goldsmith made it at least watchable but the story was so bad. I can honestly say the scenes with the Opening Klingon Battle, Spock on Vulcan, Kirk in San Francisco and then seeing the new Enterprise were awesome. Right after that and that was about 15 but no more than 20 minutes, the movie turned to pure caca. How disappointing for the actors to be given such a shit script to work with.

Goldsmith's music was thrilling.


TMP has its flaws, to be sure, but it's actually one of my favorite TREK films because of its sense of scope. It really feels like an epic science fiction movie, with a true sense of wonder and mystery, in no small part due to Goldsmith's score.

And it certainly beats the latest TREK film, INTO DARKNESS, by light years!

My vote might well go to KING KONG LIVES.

Yay, someone else hated this film too! But yes, loved the score.

Thirded! I was totally bored to tears, unfortunately too much so to even remember the music. Did it have music?

OTOH, I have to object to someone's labelling The Mission as a crap movie. Now that is out of line.

Another vote for THE SWARM -- amazing score -- but may i bring a little french touch with a choice that would end up on the podium?





And a "less catastrophic" result:



LE BRASIER is a beautiful and powerful score by Frédéric Talgorn.

And by the way my dear little old fellows: hands off ! Because BRASIER means BLAZE in english. wink

I have to disagree with The English Patient. It is a wonderful movie. You guys have no heart! wink I can think of many other movies to win best picture but were completely unworthy: Chicago, A Beautiful Mind, Crash.... I could go on and on.

And yes, labelling The Mission as a crap movie is out of line smile

There is much worse than LE BRASIER, it's called EDGE OF SANITY (still by Talgorn)

The winner of CRAPPIEST MOVIE...

EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC by Ennio Morricone...

With BEST SCORE

Yes, there are many others out there... but, the score is marvelously creepy.

Regan's Theme is spectacular and makes you momentarily forget how dreadful the movie is.

Don't forget SUPER DUPER OOPER GIRL.

Two hours of watching two women fight over one man. In a superhero film. Yes, you heard me, a SUPERHERO film!

A really good score makes me like a crappy movie, so I have no choice for that category. However, my vote for the best film with the crappiest score, is THE ODESSA FILE. CRAPPIEST. SCORE. EVER.
