I love his BOY scores (Astro & Bubble).
Seriously, they are my two favourite scores by him.

I also have lots of time for Superman Returns, Lake Placid, Orphan, 8 Legged Freaks and House Of Wax.

Eight Legged Freaks was great fun, the movie and the score, lots of energy. Also good to see House Of Wax mentioned, this is an overlooked gem.

But for me, Superman Returns has top spot.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,
Usual Suspects,
but X-2 is definitely my favourite.

Not a big Ottman fan, but Hide & Seek was kind of nice, reminding me briefly of Twin Peaks. Usual Suspects is OK too.

    He wrote one of the finest score of his career this year for JACK THE GIANT SLAYER.

    My absolute favorite, thanks to LLL's complete release, is Superman Returns. I know this score is divisive among the crowd here, but I think he had the perfect balance between Williams' original themes, his own themes, and a classic orchestration.
    I also really like his other superhero scores, such as Astro Boy, X2 (another one where the complete score shines over the OST), and both Fantastic Four soundtracks. The melancholy theme for Silver Surfer is one of his best, most beautiful themes (in my subjective opinion).
    Moving outside the superhero genre, Jack the Giant Slayer, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and The Usual Suspects are my top picks.
    This thread really reminds me I need to put some more Ottman on my now playing list. Some scores I haven't revisited in a long time.

    I picked up FF2/SILVER SURFER recently, dirt cheap on ebay and that Silver Surfer theme IS great innit.
    Some decent action and suspense tracks too. And you can still sing Roll Out The Barrel to the main FF theme smile
    I think there's a really great 30 minute 'whittle edition' to be made of this one.

    "The Usual Suspects"


    Because the low volume and suddenly loudness of cues and some stuff that veered off that I didn't care for, I had to edit the score, re-arrange and raise volumes and crossfade as needed, now it's a fantastic score. The only thing that stops me from listening to it more is the degrading speakers in my car that I can't afford to replace.

    He's been quiet since he bagged his Oscar (for editing).
    His main muse got run out of town and I also imagine his style has become somewhat passe with current films (a broad, clean, clear orchestral sound with themes and melody. Even his thriller/suspense scores accentuate the instruments).
    I do enjoy the score CDs I have by him.

    THE USUAL SUSPECTS and VALKYRIE are clear favorites. I always wanted to get the expanded SUPERMAN returns score, but haven't yet.

    I checked his work history, and SUPERMAN RETURNS is literally his only score that I know. But I bought both editions on CD and like it a lot.
