Lotr: FOTR is pretty damn good.

The Shining is cool and scary.

Close Encounters is John Williams' best.

Conan the Barbarian is hyper-macho and cool.

Rushmore perfectly fits the movie.

The Good the Bad and the Ugly is unbelievably good.

The Princess Bride has a great score by Mark Knopfler.

Jo Hisaishi's work is astoundingly good in all of Miazaki's movies. I like Sprited Away and Nausicaa the best.
