    So, is anything with lyrics out?

    For example, this one from Ratatouille.

    But this one would be OK?

    Exactly no lyrics... just music But humming isn't really lyrics.

    And also animated movies are not okay but stop motioned movies are okay

    example:

    A corpse bride is okay

    Lilo & Stich isn't okay because it is drawn

    Blimey! Did you make that banner yourself?!

    What about stuff that was used in 20th century films, but reused again since 2000, eg. a few pieces from Star Wars...?

    Welcome RoX and if you don't know the composers name, go to one of the sites provided by Ronja, and I am sure you'll find it.

    if you go to amazon, you can find most of the time the cd of the movie and the composer and all the songs are included into the info, sometimes you can listen to 30 seconds of it too

    I did

    Yes... the theme from Superman I nominated is exactly the same as the original. Just reused in the new film. So yes say Star Wars main theme is ok. As long as it's on the soundtrack from the "new" movies, from 2000 and on, go for it!

    Take Darth Vaders theme for example, it's only played briefly in Ep II and III, but if u want to nominate it you have to go with either of those versions, not the original.

    Make sense?

    Welcome but your nominations don't count because it is only scores of music, what means no lyrics. No singing at all.

    so this means the first 2 are disqualified because they have singing. The POTC one is okay though.

    And yes you can nominate more then one score of a movie, as long as it doesn't have singing.

    Hmmm. I wonder if I've seen any movies that aren't animated in the last eight years? (Ponders the lady with an eight year old and a ten year old.)

    I think I'll have to start with looking up movies from that time period. I'll be back later.



    EDIT: Well. That was depressing. I've only seen about fifteen movies in the last 8 years. here is a good site with pretty much every movie that came out since 1996.

    Now I've got to go see if any of those movies had decent music.....

    We did think about including animated movies at first, but then we realized there's just too many! But if this tournie goes well we might do one for animated too

    And thanks for the link!
