He did the musical scores for several movies. I haven’t seen them all, but Conan the Barbarian and RoboCop (the original) have some of the best scores in all of film, IMO. There are many great film composers, but I think one of Poledouris’s biggest strengths, and one thing that makes him stand out so much, is his range. I don’t think any of his scores are particularly similar (among the ones I’m familiar with), but they’re still really, really awesome.
What other great music has Poledouris done?
