Film score pick of the mo: Godzilla

Alexandre Desplat’s score for Godzilla is excellent. It’s loud, roar-y and everything it should be for the new Godzilla film. However, I couldn’t pick one of the album’s tracks as a favourite. Sure, The Power Plant is a stand out track. But my favourite film score moment has to be the music accompanying the HALO jump sequence:

The track is by György Ligeti, titled Requiem. Famously used in 2001: A Space Odyssey. This track sends chills down my spine listening to it as a stand alone piece. It was a perfect match to the sequence in the film. And I think my favourite scene from the entire film.
