10 Best Film Scores/Soundtracks of the Past Decade

Listed below in no particular order of importance are the film soundtracks I consider as being the best of the 2000’s. All of these soundtracks have the distinction of not just great pieces of music in their own right, but also adding another layer to the film they’re scoring. Most are orchestral soundtracks with a couple a mixture of both orchestral work and licensed songs. For franchises which contain repeating music cues and motifs I’ve decided to combine as one entry.

I’ve added a video link of a favorite track from each soundtrack.

1. O, Brother Where Art Thou?

2. Almost Famous

3. Gladiator

4. Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2

5. Requiem for a Dream

6. 28 Days Later

7. Pan’s Labyrinth

8. Batman Begins/The Dark Knight

9. The Fountain

10. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Hottie of the Day: Felicia Day


The hottie of the day honors goes to one Felicia Day. She has become the internet geek goddess through her work on Joss Whedon’s internet sensation, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and on her very own popular web series, The Guild. She epitomizes the girl-next-door type that any boy would take home to mother, but I do believe that those fiery-red locks hide a sinfully “good” girl. It’s very difficult to get around the web nowadays and not see her. Other than being a criminally-hot redhead, Ms. Day also happens to be an avid gamer and has professed to having been addicted to the mmorpg, World of Warcraft. It is this admission, and the fact she also plays a wide-range of games, which has endeared her to geeks and non-geeks alike. She may well be the perfect geek goddess.
