I figured it was a topic worth having, given all the movie threads so far. Feel free to extend the title to include overall scores and songs not used as the main theme.

In no particular order, my favorites:

Back to the Future
Star Wars
Indiana Jones
Ghostbusters
Top Gun (Highway to the Danger Zone was a cool song, I don't care what you say)
Beverly Hills Cop
Batman (the Danny Elfman theme)
Superman
Any other theme by John Williams
A few other themes each by Alan Silvestri (like Predator) and Danny Elfman (like Spider-Man)

The Incredibles, in my opinion, had a very well-written score. I'm sure I'll think of others somewhere along the way, but I think that's enough for now.

Favorite Scores:
Anything (except the Harry Potter scores) by John Williams.
Anything by Danny Elfman.
Alan Silvestri - The Abyss
James Horner - Aliens
Graeme Revell (sp) - The Crow
Blade Runner
David Arnold - Independence Day
Herrmann - Psycho

Other (non-score) soundtracks:
The Matrix
Strange Days
Good Morning Vietnam
Swing Kids (also score - James Horner)
Stand By Me
The Crow

I'd put single 'themes' on the list, but most of my favorites fall into a score I've already listed. There's tons more soundtracks on my shelf, but those are the ones that get the most play.

Any Ennio Morricone collaboration with Sergio Leone. Awesome!

These are some of my favorites, too, especially The Crow.

My favorite scores are from the Lord Of The Rings. They're just awesome. My favorite movie theme is the one from Jurassic Park.

Yup, more proof that Johnny Williams rocks. Well, not literally, since a lot of his work is on classical stations, but...well, you understand what I'm saying. I hope.

From a movie in progress, the Halo Scores were quite well done and actually quite relaxing (which is contradicting the fact that the universe is about to end). And another lesser known movie in progress, Baldurs Gate. If they use the music from the game then I'll be just fine. Have you ever heard the scores from BG2 and BG2:TOB? Absolutely Amazing.

Seriously atmospheric music... the game experience would have been somewhat lessened without music of that calibre.

Oh yeah! The music that accompanied the lighting of the beacons in Return of the King was awesome.

My favorite movie theme is Boy meets Girl under a Silvery Moon, which then explodes for No Apparent Reason.

My Favorite Movie Themes

Dragonheart
Predator (of course)
Star Wars
Shawshank Redemption
Rob Roy
Clue (because it's too funny not to love the theme where the guests are running around trying to follow all of Tim Curry's explanation)
Memoirs of a Geisha
Millennium Actress
Jurassic Park

I love almost all of John Williams' work.

Battle Of The Heroes from SW3:RoTS
Most any LoTR music.
The GodFather opening theme is quite cool, as well as the wedding music played at Michael's/Appolonia's wedding.
