I cant help to compare the Mummy Retuns score and the CutThroat Island score.
They are both great action-scores, in my opinion Cutthroat Island was the best score of 1995, while Mummy Reruns is the best score so far in 2001. Even though Edward Scissorhands by Danny Elfman is my favourite score through times, these two scores comes high up in my rankinglist.

The movie CutThroat Island was a big fiasco, and I can understand it. The movie is really bad, Geena Davis is a disaster as the main-character.
But the score is magnificent. Not many bad movies have good scores, but this picture has. John Debney has sorrowfully never been close to achieve something similar after CutThroat Island. I believe it is strange this is he wasnt even nominated for Oscar for this score, but i guess the Oscar-people rather prefer James Horner or Stephen Warbeck (havent even heard of Steven Warbeck until he got Oscar for Shakespeare in Love)

I have listen to Mummy Returns and CutThroat Island some times, and i have to say ; Cutthroat Island is the best one. Mummy Returns have the best "hero-music", but the album can sometimes be rather boring. CutThroat Island has the ability to keep you interested all through the album, thats what i like about it.

So what is your favorite action-score? I would like to hear.
