I agree with John Murphy for 28 Days Later and
Sunshine.

Ennio Morricone offers master classes though.
I always liked For a Few Dollars More and the 'Chimes' theme

And Carpenter's Halloween theme is perfect.

I'm fully prepared for some stick, but one of the best soundtracks i've heard is from Josie and the Pussycats. For a pure pop album, it's absolutely fantastic.

3 Small Words
Come On
Real Wild Child

Michael Nyman - Drowning By Numbers

He and Peter Greenaway were a match made in heaven imo so pretty much any of his scores could apply.

Jon Brion - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Bernard Hermann - Taxi Driver
Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks
The Wicker Man soundtrack

Thanks for the links. Some of these themes are great.

I really like the soundtracks to Inception and Walk The Line.

Into the Wild - Eddie Vedder
Yes, this is absolutely beautiful, and I loved the film.

No, you're not wrong on that one! While the bulk of it is their trademark campy rawk, there are a couple of tracks way ahead of their time - the second track (after the main theme) is incredibly similar to Vangelis' Blade Runner opening titles - and Queen's soundtrack was in 1980!

Has anyone mentioned Francis Lai? I happened to discover his music not long ago - beautiful compositions ideal for romantic movies:

..... and of course John Barry, John Williams, Malcolm Arnold ......

No one has mentioned LOTR?

Wonderful instrumental pieces and some hauntingly beautiful vocals.
