The Top Ten

1 The Thin Red Line

Hans Zimmer has rivetted a marvel of a score

Gorgeous score by Hans Zimmer.

2 Saving Private Ryan
3 Inglourious Basterds

Tarantino movies always have great soundtracks

4 Braveheart
5 The Patriot

One of the best soundtracks from the LEGEND John Williams.

6 The Deer Hunter
7 Apocalypse Now

A really good use of The Doors music - Beatlesboy9

Agree. Love the music in the heroine sex scene

Head and shoulders above the rest.
The use of "The End" may be the greatest cinematic use of a non-original song ever done, and by itself puts this one on top.
