A few good ones, like BASIC INSTINCT, CARLITO'S WAY, INDEPENDENCE DAY...but ultimately I would have to choose:

SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS (James Newton Howard).

I thought we put ghoulish threads like this in the ground?

I watched Independence Day yesterday (3/25) and drank some wine in his honor.

Rest in peace!

Help me understand what might be ghoulish about this thread? I truly have no idea.

I think they're perfectly fine as long as one allows for some time after the person's passing.

I think it's a bit dark to race to start a soundtrack ranking thread immediately after an actor has died. I think it's disrespectful to try to reduce someone's life and work down to music that happened to be heard in a movie that the person acted in.

In this case, we're talking about a character actor who never had a starring role in a picture, and whose name I'd wager most of us on here didn't even know until we saw his obituary in the news the other day. I don't know much about him, honestly, but he sounds like a nice guy, and I think he probably deserves more significant discussion than whether the MEET THE PARENTS soundtrack is a better listen than the MY COUSIN VINNY soundtrack this week.

Well, feel free NOT to participate in the discussion.

Certainly Goldsmith's BASIC INSTINCT.

Mothersbaugh's THE ADVENTURES OF ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE was pretty good, too.

TO FIRST BREATH-LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT. It reminds me of the time an actor was just being a pain and a neck complaining about his role, his dialogue, the weather we were shooting under. So I said to him, look your free to go if you want to, there are plenty of other actors who would like to do your part.

My favorite of all his performances was in FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON. And those scores really need to appear on cd.

I can surely see what you are saying, and this board has grown some rather trivial habits the past couple years, I think because largely there is a lack of things to talk about aside from new releases. Some of these topics are downright trivial like this one, which I guess you could see trivialize rather than honor the man. Beyond that I am not really sure what the point of it is, I mean Rebhorn did not have anything to do with the score.

... this board has grown some rather trivial habits the past couple years...

...like kvetching over the "proper" amount of time that must pass before a thread dedicated to a performer or other film figure can be started? wink

Personally I think recalling the scores of films in which the late performer appeared is a fitting and rather nice way to remember someone who's died instead of wagging a pale, accusatory, still-living-with-one's-parents-in-their-attic finger at one another like some whacked-out clone of the Dennis Hopper (R.I.P.) character in Apocalypse Now.

Jim,

Sometimes you come off as sketching out these mini-speeches very carefully to sound 'that way', I mean ' pale accusatory finger' are you writing a short story or what?

CARLITO'S WAY, by Patrick Doyle. DePalma gets the best out of his composers.

I think, like how John put it, if the guy's like a character actor that would never have a Silva America compilation named after him ("THE UPTIGHT COMBOVER: MUSIC FROM THE FILMS OF JAMES REBHORN"), tributes about his actual work in the film's he appeared in would be perfectly acceptable over at the Non-Film Score Discussion, rather than shoehorning in a "Best Score To A Movie In Which James Rebhorn Had _Maybe_ Three Lines" thread on this side of the page.
