As Ted just reviewed Chappie this weekend, he mentioned that the only thing he liked in the movie was Hans Zimmer‘s score. So it made me think of other robot movies that have great, memorable soundtracks. First thing that came to mind is of course Pacific Rim, boy I love that movie and its soundtrack, but I’ve featured that in previous music break here.
So here are five of my favorite movies dealing with robots and/or artificial intelligence. It’s interesting how soulful most of the music of sci-fi movies can be, and Blade Runner in particular, have such an emotionally haunting quality about it. For some reason I didn’t include the A.I. soundtrack as one of my favorite John Williams’ scores which is a glaring omission as it’s just sooo beautiful. I also like the song For Always by Lara Fabian, but the instrumental side is even more gorgeous. So here they are in order of release:
Blade Runner (1982)
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
By Brad Fiedel
The Iron Giant (1999)
By Michael Kamen
Artificial Intelligence (2001)
By John Williams
Big Hero 6 (2014)
By Henry Jackman
I simply have to include this one even though it’s a TV series. My hubby is a big fan too, especially from the earlier seasons.
Battlestar Galactica (2004 Series) by Bear McCreary
Hope you enjoy this music break. What are some of YOUR favorite soundtrack from sci-fi movies about robots?
