Max Steiner single-handedly saved the 1944 World War II David O. Selznick American wartime home front epic "Since You Went Away". It would have been dead on arrival but Steiner picked up on the central problem of the film's fierce idealized universe and turned that into a virtue with his lilting and effective series of character driven themes and one of his most glorious waltzes and a stirring Main Theme that announced that this was "Gone With the Wind" 1944...and it worked and deserved the Oscar for Best Original Score.

Wow this makes we want to hear the piece really badly.

"The Swarm". Incredible music for an incredibly bad film. Though t's not unwatchable.
STTMP is one of my favorite movies. I just dig the vibe of that film and the score is one of the greatest achievements in film music. Some of the worst films with great scores came from the 50's and 60's.
Especially big budget stinkers like Sodom and Gomorrah, The Bible, Casino Royale (67) and so many others.


Dang. I thought I was first with SWARM but you nailed it.

Clearly Exorcist II; The audience was even chasing the filmmakers down the street as an angry mob according to Friedkin and writer Blatty I believe claimed the audience was laughing throughout it wink

Great score by Morricone though.

When it comes to the crap movie - good score ratio, nothing beats part V of that series. Not even the last two TNG movies.

Two James Newton Howard scored projects instantly come to my mind: Water Horse: Legend of the Deep and The Last Airbender. Especially Water Horse. I don't know what inspired James Newton Howard to write such a beautiful score for this film.

Superman IV has to be on the list somewhere.

THE TEMP is an absolutely dire film, but I think Frederic Talgorn's score is one of the most underrated of the 90s.

Good pick! I love Sandy Courage 'growling' Nuclear Man theme!

Soul Surfer.

morricone's scores for 'the mission' (maybe not a total crapfest, but the score just annihilates the very pedestrian movie) and 'red sonja'.

I'm rather fond of The 13th Warrior, both score and film!

You're not the only one.

Pretty much every Godzilla movie is crap, and pretty much every one features a solid-to-excellent score razz

I'm thinking of Conan the Destroyer, too. While the music is not necessary near the top of Basil's best, it still soars high above that crappy movie.

It's not THAT bad a film but I think 'Raise The Titanic!' has to be a contender.

A truly epic score that never received an official release. I watch the film solely to hear the music.

How about INCHON ?

How about INCHON ?

As noted elsewhere, the best film score ever recorded in an Italian wine cellar.
