  1. Good movie. Hushpuppy is getting nominated.

  2. i’ve really wanted to see this. and i have a weird thing about not listening to scores before seeing the movie it belongs to. i want the full first experience.

  3. Score to “The Dark Knight Rises.” Promise: I will both display AND play my winnings. Win-win-win.

  4. The Halifax Highlanders’ 3-2 victory over the St. John’s Shamrocks in Goon.

  5. I’m going to say Emilie Simon’s score for the movie Delicacy, even though it was released in France last year. This is America, and we didn’t get it until 2012! And it’s super, super good and super, super sad. Emilie is the best and I want to be her when I grow up.

  6. This week’s Friday giveaway is really breaking new ground in terms of tweeness.

  7. Does Shut up and play the hits count? If not then Vampire Dog.

  8. This may be my favorite soundtrack of 2012 — didn’t realize until now that Benh Zeitlin co-composed it in addition to writing and directing the movie. Jonny Greenwood’s score for the Master was also fantastic.

  9. Moonrise Kingdom

  10. …..guysireallydidn’tlikethatmovieandfeelreallyintensecomplicatedthingsaboutit.

  11. Berberian Sound Studio

  12. Perks of Being a Wallflower! WE CAN BE HEROEEEESSSSS

    Beasts of the Southern Wild actually.

  18. Um…does it count if I say that my favorite film scores are Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin’s work on Zeitlin’s earlier short film “Glory at Sea” and Ray Tintori’s “Death to the Tinman,” both viewable online:

    Glory at Sea:
    Death to the Tinman:

    or as part of the always stunning Wholphin DVD series. I very much enjoyed Beasts of the Southern Wild but had a few issues with it as well and I feel like “Glory at Sea” kind of covers similar ground (musically as well) but in a much less problematic way. That being said, I absolutely love all of Romer and Zeitlin’s music, so much so that I spent a good portion of an evening trying to track down a digital download of the scores to those shorts, and upon finding it available on some dusty, janky online music store in a corner of the Internet and then actually paid MONEY for them (in A.D. 2010, no less), thank you very much, despite being half convinced that my credit card number was going straight to the Russian mafia. I thought the score to “Beasts of the Southern Wild” was completely amazing and would love to have it on vinyl and promise not to scratch or make a dubstep remix of any of the songs, or at the very least not upload it to SoundCloud. (Wendy Carlos’ work on “A Clockwork Orange” is probably an easy tie, lest my original answer seem like pandering.)

  19. So far for 2012 it is Lincoln

    For me, my favorite movie score of 2012 is “The Dark Knight Rises”! Thanks for having the “Beasts of the Southern Wild” original score on vinyl giveaway! :D
