This bargain 6CD collection features no less that 100 of the most popular classic movie themes ever! Includes themes from Harry Potter, Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Death in Venice, American Beauty, Bridget Jones's Diary, Cinema Paradiso, The Piano, Philadelphia, The Shawshank Redemption and more great film soundtracks. Each of the 6 discs covers different genres from 'Great Blockbusters', 'Classic Movies', 'Favourite Movies', 'Piano at the Cinema', 'Opera at the Cinema' and 'Baroque goes to the Cinema'.
"As I type the words to this review, I am listening to Nessun dorma (Puccini, Turandof) over and over again from the CD collection I am now writing about. Good music is supposed to inspire, and this one inspires.
This six CD collection is from Best Film 100: The Great Blockbusters, The Classic Movies, Favorite Movies, The Piano at the Cinema, Opera at the Cinema (my favorite), and Baroque Goes to the Cinema.
The ironic part about listening to music from the movies is that it mainly goes unnoticed by people who would never claim to be classical or opera lovers in the first place. I'm sure that Mozart's, "Eine kleine Nachtmusik" fits perfectly in the movie "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," a movie I seem to continually miss, and it is also featured in "There's Something About Mary" a movie I continually wish I had missed.
Only a few are not from classical writers, but possess melodies that fit a particular mood or time of day e.g. the themes from "Schindler's List," "You Only Live Twice," or "Saving Private Ryan[`s,]" "Hymn to the Fallen" are equally moving.
And that is why I recommend that you start moving to get "Best Film 100" music about the mov-ies.
After all, "Life is Beautiful," Barcarolle: Offenbach, Les Contes d'Hoffmann.
P.S. Since this site let's you play it, try CD 5: Nos. 9, 17, and 18. Whoof! "
Amazing timeless collection, with just one flaw....

"As mentioned this is a great collection for anyone who wants to introduce themselves to the classical genre. I purchased this collection for the sheer amount of Mozart available, but I would say there is one flaw.
It mentions the Film Name on the track, instead of the Original name of the compositions. Although I can understand this is the connection between the CD and customer, however I would have also liked the real composition names, so next time I'm drunk on wine with friends I can drop the M-Bomb (Mozart).
Despite that I'm still giving it 5 stars, as the product more than makes up for it!"
Great music collection

"It has basically everything that you would want in a film collection. My favorite is the first CD that features the great blockbusters. Please be aware that the majority of the music is comprised of "classical" music. This is often misleading because usually one expects to listen to the "theme music" of each movie, but that is not the case."
What a deal !!

"EXCELLENT COLLECTION FOR THE PRICE (OR ANY PRICE). SONG SELECTION IS GOOD AND SONICS ARE AMAZING!"
More classical than just film

"Don't let the titles of the films lull you into thinking this is mostly film music. In fact, it is mostly classical music sourced from different films, with some arrangements on the first CD from popular films included. Having said this, it is nonetheless an excellent collection of works and styles and very accessible to those who may not listen to much classical. With six discs there is plenty of listening, and some of the works will definitely take you back to the films they are found in."
