I somehow missed this post when it was first made, and as an avid movie/game/trailer soundtrack listener, now consider it one of my favorites.  Brett chose some amazing albums, but there's a couple that I've come across that I think fit his list too. Anybody else know of any other honorable mentions?

Prometheus by Marc Streitenfield
Robin Hood (2012) by Marc Streitenfield
Ironclad by Lorne Balfe
The Fountain by Clint Mansell
Black Hawk Down by Hans Zimmer

Therion's Deggial album. If Conan the Barbarian owned a gym, this is what he'd play.

Have you ever considered doing a series for middle school and high school boys? Being 13 only certain posts can apply.  I think a series with without any  swearing with topics on gentlemanly behavior, handy skills, inspiring stories of great men, and just plain good to know knowledge geared for middle and high school guys would be great. I doubt im the only kid under 18 that reads your posts.
