It is amazing when the music can carry the first 20 minutes of a film when there is almost no dialogue whatsoever. It is able to tell the story with emotion alone and the listener fills in the rest. My favorite of all time.

This is a truly underrated score, and in my opinion his best work at least for movie soundtracks. Hunt for Red October, Conan the Destroyer and Starship troopers are all honorable mentions.

I grew up loving this score. Amazing. My love for classical music was heightened with this and I was only 7 at the time.

I like his work in The Hunt For Red October the best. Good movie made even better by a great soundtrack.

Where is the score from Lonesome Dove? Definitely among Poledoris' finest; and one for which he won an Emmy.
Report as inappropriate
Not only one of the best soundtracks in film history, but an amazingly moving and epic composition comparable to Wagner's works. He was one of the most talented men in the business and he is missed.

Has anyone heard about the NEW 2 CD release distributed by Screen Archives Entertainmen t and Film Score Monthly http://www.s c r e e n a r c h i v e s . c o m ? Given the approval & blessing of his daughters Zoe & Alexis, and with a full-on orchestra as per Mr. Poledouris' original intent (conducted by Nic Raine), it contains over 2 HOURS of music (much of which was not on the original release) and liner notes that will make you salivate. If you liked the original release, I PROMISE you'll LOVE this 'reboot'!

The soundtrack to Robocop is not too bad either

This is quite possibly the greatest soundtrack ever created.

It rankles me, like a thorn in my genitals, that he didn't win anything for the conan scores! SO underrated.. .
