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.

I would say the choices are so large one could write an encyclopedia based on that question. For one very good reason, Film music is the best part of the film industry. How about Blood in the streets-74- Ennio Morricone.

Krull is Krapp, but the score is sublime. smile

1941-79- Is dubious, but WILLIAMS MARCH is superb.

Hook

A very unpleasant and unfun film.

John Williams' score makes for great listening.

Plan nine from outer space -56- was a joke, but you know the score was pretty good, for sure the best part of that turkey.

NATE AND HAYES-83- I felt was pretty forgettable, but a grand score from TREVOR JONES.

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.

Treasure of the four crowns-83-Ennio Morricone- Even the 3d couldn't save this film, however ENNIO delivered a fine score with a great main theme.

"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.

"Sodom and Gomorrah" is simply a Delight and so campy and yet so serious as Miklos Rozsa mentions in his autobiography that he tried desperately to save it with music...but he thought it didn't work at all. You get prayer chants, marches and a male military vocal chorus for Elamite warriors, a really gorgeous love/seduction theme and in the finale you get to hear how Rozsa might have scored a big-budget "disaster" genre film with an earthquake, fire and brimstone and a pillar of salt scene add-on. Great stuff!

I'm rather fond of The 13th Warrior, both score and film! Ah, well, to each their own. I'm not sure if these qualify, but...

Legend
Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome
Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace

and, as mentioned above, Krull and Hook.

Bruce Lee's GAME OF DEATH.

Trainwreck of à movie but John Barry's superb music makes the movie just watchable.

I agree with Krull and The Phantom Menace! Pretty awful movies, indeed.
