Music is perhaps just as important in a movie or series as story and acting. Which of the soundtrack from these talented, well known composers do you like best?

Thanks - I totally agree!  Williams is fine too, but you can't beat Warcraaaaaft!  (Terrible movie, but great theme!)

I can get this, I know I can!  Just one question: is the "They're" lyrics, or just a hint?

I don't consider Warcraft (2016) bad, at all. It might not be the best or most exciting fantasy movie, but it's far from the worst and I enjoyed it despite not being that much of a fantasy fan. So, might it just be fantasy for people who don't like fantasy?

The movie Warcraft is a tad busy and also somewhat hollow. The structure and pacing do not seem to provide the audience the opportunity to connect with any of the characters. The movie is long too, yet still feels rushed. Maybe the movie appeals more to people who are already familiar with the game than with people who are not. That being expressed, the adaptation is not really much better or much worse than most adaptions of other video game franchises.

You're probably right, Jeorj.  I wasn't into it because I'd never played the game or anything.  And it just depends on your movie taste.

My biggest problem with the movie was the casting of Americans.  In medieval fantasy movies, you can only cast Europeans or other people with accents.  It just becomes cheesy if they all sound like they're getting ready to say, "I've gotta check my phone, dude!"

Wow, this is the first time I've seen the name Ramin Djawadi and he's practically from my neighborhood. The music he scored for the movies I saw didn't leave any impression so I'll go with John Williams.

John who?

Lol seriously, no offense to the other composer (certainly a talented guy who's making more money in a month that I'll ever make in 100 years) but I've never heard about him so the title made me smile, I mean you might as well ask me who's my favorite actor Al Pacino or Armin Tamzarione
