    In no particular order...

    "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse" - D. Pemberton (that theme is just incredible - much like the Batman Begins theme, so much is conveyed in two [or just one] notes)
    "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" - L. Balfe (not a masterpiece in a traditional sense, but a lot of over the top, bombastic fun)
    "Isle Of Dogs" - A.. Desplat (very memorable, and unique in approach - a nice hybrid of Japanese music and Western approaches to composition)
    "Black Panther" - L. Göransson (just a perfect balance- the music is an outstanding component of an otherwise entertaining however by-the-numbers film)
    "Avengers: Infinity War" - A. Silvestri (exciting, and very satisfying - a rewarding listen for those who have followed the MCU's music)
    "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald" - J. N. Howard (lots of rich melodies, and textures - that theme for Dumbledore is gorgeous)
    "Solo - A Star Wars Story" - J. Williams/J. Powell (nice themes by Williams in a very nice hybrid of old and new by Powell)
    "Bohemian Rhapsody" - Queen (I know this is not an ORIGINAL SCORE, but Queen are my favourite band)
    "Incredibles 2" - M. Giacchino (a nice extension of the original)
    "First Man" - J. Hurwitz (very moving, and reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey's music)
    "Crazy Rich Asians" - B. Tyler (a nice big band score)
    "Johnny English Strikes Again" - H. Goodall (a very memorable and impressive score, which flew under most people's radar)

    I haven't the time to follow many television or steaming platform series anymore, but Christopher Lennertz "Lost In Space" for Netflix was pretty exceptional.

    Max Richter's FX series "Taboo" was good too.

    I think Rupert Gregson-Williams did some nice work for "The Crown" and "The Alienist".

    I assume any tv from Blake Neely, Jeff Russo, Trevor Morris, or Bear McCreary remain superb as well.

    what do you guys think?

    While the soundtrack is from 2017, the movie didn't come to America until 2018 so that was the year many people heard of it.

    Chinese Anime epic [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Awesome atmosphere in the soundtrack (and the movie is great too).
