Earlier I said I am torn between For Greater Glory and Star Trek. After reading all of your choices, I am reminded of how much I loved Inception and The Dark Knight. Ranking them:

1. For Greater Glory - what made this extra special was that it meant the return of the James Horner I know and love

2. The Dark Knight - I have played this score more than any other in the last few years

3. Star Trek - just a terrific listen from beginning to end; a complete CD

4. Inception - very powerful stuff, could have easily changed places with Star Trek

My vote would go to Tron Legacy.

My vote would go to Tron Legacy.

Yup. YOU speak the truth! Just as a lot of other members on this board.

Yor, don't dismiss Tron: Legacy too quickly; it has received much love from other posters. I wonder how the votes stack up at this point?

Of the ones mentioned so far I was going to go with HOW TO TRAIN MY DRAGON or STAR TREK until I realized how many times I have pulled out Bruno Coulais's CORALINE.
I've got to go with the one my unconscious instincts picks for me.

Tower Heist


Oh yes, how could I forget Tower Heist? It's a brilliant score!

I think these scores from 2008 to the present will hold up well for me in time:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Burn After Reading
Hipsters (Russian musical)
Star Trek (2009)
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Inception
Never Let Me Go

There are also some great scores compiled from music of the past such as The Tree of Life and Moonrise Kingdom, but I wanted to concentrate on original music.

Glad to see this movie mentioned. I wish more people had heard of it!

I love it. It played in Seattle at the film fest in 2010 and again for a few weeks in December 2011. I went both times. Now I'm planning to get the DVD. Utterly delightful!

No order to these:

Up
Star Trek
Tron: Legacy
Tron: Uprising
Sword & Sworcery EP
Wreck-It Ralph
The Hobbit

Realizing I haven't gotten many current releases lately. I tend not to purchase a score until I see the film, and with a 1 year old, haven't done a whole lot of that! I'm sure the two recent Williams scores would be on the list if I had heard them yet. TV has seemed a little more interesting score wise lately for me. Hannibal in particular is extremely well scored, it's just not stuff I would listen to outside of the show, it's positively unsettling.

Without no doubt:

John Powell's How to Train Your Dragon. All of the tracks are worth listening, and a lot of them are a straight masterpiece works. Glad this was nominated at the oscar, and the only worthy winner if we compare to the other nominator.
And then:
- James Horner's Avatar
- John Powell's Mars Needs Moms, Rio, Hancock

Skyfall (Thomas Newman)

A wonderful score. Newman shows how to score a Bond film in the 21st century. Hopefully it won't be his only Bond score.

Robert Townson called the How to Train Your Dragon score "a masterpiece" at last weekend's GSPO concert and I agree. For me, it took the movie to another level. It's hard to believe that it lost the Best Score Oscar to The Social Network.

Wow - I'm really the ONLY PERSON who thinks Super 8 is one of the best scores of the past 5 years? That surprises me!

One of the best?
No, you're not the only one!...
