Highly, highly recommend getting this even if you haven't seen the film (I hadn't when I first got it).

The Village - Even though I didn't really like the movie, i loved the score.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - Seriously, these movies are so important to the popular culture of this decade it's not funny.

Werckmeister harmóniák (2000) by Hungarian director Bela Tarr has a beautiful score.

A very challenging movie to watch because it is REALLY slow (Tarr also directed the movie Sátántangó, which was over 7 hours long).

I don't want to give away to much but there is a scene where the mob destroys the local hospital almost in complete silence, no grunting or screaming, you can only hear the sound of things being broken. It ends when the mob discovers an old man, and at this point the music comes on... This scene has really benn branded into my mind, I can recall it so vividly.

Check it out if you are into art house films!

This thread has a bit of a date stamp: opened in Jan 2010 to review the previous decade. I for one would be quite happy to talk hear about any filmscore/soundtrack from 2000 til today. What do you think? It's pretty safe to say that pourmeanother is not going to complain.

EDIT: oops... missed the bit about it having to be from 2000 to 2009. I've heard many good film scores from that time period, but... none have been burned into my memory yet. The movies I have watched many times are mostly older than that, giving me less of a chance to have forged those connections with newer movies.

Dracula (the Coppola movie from 1993) has a really great, dark, gothic orchestral score that does a lot to enhance the dark mood of the movie. It's composed by some guy named Wojciech Kilar, whose other works I'm not familiar with. I'm not actually sure if he's a classically trained composer or just a "regular" film soundtrack composer.

The japanese anime movie Paprika also has a fantastic soundtrack, composed by Susumu Hirasawa, who has published many albums with his particular style of electronic music. He also did the soundtrack for the anime series Berserk, so quite a pedigree - at least for people who are into that sort of thing. I love the opening scene of Paprika, featuring Hirasawa's music front and center.

Default Peter Pan

I think I'd have to go with the live-action Peter Pan movie from 2003. James Newton Howard is awesome.

Something about 'Fairy Dance' is peaceful and calming, plus it works well when I'm trying to study or work.
