  1. I think Heavenly Guardian on PS2 or Wii is a prime example of a very fun game that is by no means good. Same applies to the eternally hilarious Work Time Fun, aka WTF on the PSP.
  2. My bad, I meant Joe Hisaishi but typed Miyazaki...probably not the first time it happened, I'm sure. Also, the soundtrack for Sunshine has somehow leaked onto the web, but there's still no plans for an actual release.
  3. Ok, at last somebody mentions A Beautiful Mind...it was the first one I was going to bring up. Absolutely beautiful. The score to GOLDENEYE is amazing. Moody and very unusual, it is so much fun to listen to. The score (not soundtrack) to JAWBREAKER by Stephen Endelman is surreal and beautiful. How it ever got paired up with that movie is beyond me, but it is a hidden gem and completely unlike anything I've ever heard. The soundtrack to ONCE brings me to tears. I love that music so much, particularly "Falling Slowly," "Mind's Made Up," and "Say It To Me Now" I defy you to find someone singing anything with nearly as much passion as the vocalists in this The score to PAPRIKA is fantastic too, probably the most everything in this soundtrack than there is anything in all the others. Very random. "Parade" is incredibly moving and creepy too. KIMERA has an explosive soundtrack that most of this community will appreciate...classic violin techno. Tell me that does not make you salivate in your giblets. Both the soundtrack and score to WICKER PARK are beautiful. And might as well mention the score to SOLARIS while we're here. Which brings me to SUNSHINE, which is a crime against humanity that no soundtrack exists for it yet. As for everyone's favorite Miyazaki, his favorites of mine are his work in ROBOT CARNIVAL, SPIRITED AWAY, PRINCESS MONONOKE, and PARASITE EVE. All of those are very moving listens. HENRY FOOL has a fun soundtrack which is scattered throughout the cd against its moody score, which has ecchoes of 8-bit throughout. Hooray! AMELIE and GOODBYE LENIN are Yann Tierson's masterpieces, and that piano takes me to someplace new every time I hear it. ONE HOUR PHOTO and RUN LOLA RUN's soundtracks are worth mentioning Of course THE FOUNTAIN has already been mentioned. It needs no explanation, it is the best current score by my estimation. Lastly, this is a bit of a stretch, but it must be brought up. I /still/ listen to the Deep Space Bass soundtrack to TOONAMI. Fantastic techno remixes and those tracks just take me back to 4th grade afternoons of rushing home to watch Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. Man. Awesome. And just for fun I'm throwing in PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, which has some haunting melodies but mostly some fun rock and roll that is only endearing if you've seen the movie. Which is hilarious.
  4. Across the Universe http://youtube.com/watch?v=bQ6d3m-GFyw And the movie of the YEAR no doubt will be The Darjeeling Limited http://youtube.com/watch?v=7mbgzJG5Zdk
  5. It's like Rez and acid are tag-teaming your body inside of a rainbow made by Satan
  6. http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01123/ Breathtaking.
  7. True, there are several factors to the ease of the battle, but I guess my expectations were so high because of how amazingly the game kept building and building...everything leading up to that finale was just utterly perfect in my opinion. Which is why I'm going back and playing Silent Hills 1-3...after my foray into 4, which is the first I've ever played, I collected the rest and am delving into them so I'll keep that little nugget about SH2 in mind.
  8. I submit that Silent Hill 4: The Room has the lamest, most insultingly underwhelming boss battle ever. I adore Silent Hill 4 as one of my most favorite games of all time, and I understand that it's not about the action, it's about the gorgeously told epic story...but it /is/ a game at heart, and that final boss battle was the easiest and most frightfully dull climactic battles I've ever played. Legend of the Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon for the N64 is a close second, with the back-to-back Impact battles being the weakest enemies in the game, with the strategy being mindless repetitive maneuvering. Third runner up goes to Ganon in Ocarina of Time. Hardly epic.
