Awesome Music / Ennio Morricone

  • Cinema Paradiso is Ennio Morricone's most heartwarming score. The famous "Love Theme" however is misattributed to him when in fact it was composed by his son, Andrea.
  • The Golden Globe and Oscar-winning soundtrack of The Hateful 8 notably features the first Western score by Ennio Morricone in decades—especially unique as Tarantino is usually not one to "trust" composers to score original music for his films.
  • In a departure from his usual work on Westerns, he composed most of the music of the Sci-Fi/Horror film The Thing (1982), including the iconic and incredibly foreboding main theme, which he created in collaboration with the film's director, John Carpenter.
