OT: what movie would actually be worth seeing with a live-performed soundtrack

Serious question where your answers will be given undue weight in a real world application. Current favorites internally are Jurassic Park and Home Alone but surely the movie knowledge of this blog can provide a better answer.

You're going to need an orchestra though. The guy that wrote the score deserved an Oscar.

I love movies that utilize traditional orchestral soundtracks. And sleep. Which happens to be eluding me tonight.

Amadeus. Immortal Beloved. Rocky. Singles. Pulp Fiction.

And American Psycho.

Oh, hell yeah--Judgement Night has a killer soundtrack. Particularly loved the Sonic Youth/Cypress Hill pairing, with Sir Mix-a-Lot/Mudhoney as a close second. The soundtrack is better than the film, which is a good watch mostly for Dennis Leary's turn as a murderous but funny gangbanger (yeah, you read that right).

2001: A Space Odyssey.

John Boorman's Excalibur would be second place for me.

Koyaanisqatsi would be fascinating. Phillip Glass is surprisingly difficult to perform, I understand.

Although I am not sure what is planned for the next iteration of the site (I don't remember hearing anything about drastic change or separation of forums like this), such a forum structure is definitely not supported by the current format and version of Drupal. I know there will be calls for this occasionally until we go back to non-OT mode (and we're going to experiment with better message distribution this time too), but for the time being, this particular question has been answered.

The Nashville Symphony actually does this in the winter. So far, the list for this year looks like Jurassic Park, Home Alone, and Harry Potter

Alone [Одна] (Shostakovich)

As of 2010, it appears a full restored version of Fritz Lang's Metropolis exists with a restored film score by Gottfried Huppertz.

2001: A Space Odyssey, It was probably 10 years ago but Michigan Theater had it as part of their summer classic movie series and a guy played the organ during the opening and that was really cool. I also think Last of the Mohicans would be good.
