Default Movies and Scores

I have noticed that most modern day movies don't have background scores like they used to. It was a big trend in the 80's. I kind of miss it, it gives the movie a more dramatic feel to it. Thoughts?

I feel like I've noticed plenty of dramatic, orchestral scores in movies recently.

It does seem that soundtracks have usurped a lot of the role that scores used to play, though.

Yeah, that's kind of what I meant. Less scores, more soundtrack music or songs that is not an original score??

Yeah I get what you mean. I think it's really dependent on the film/genre. Hell, the Graduate was one long Simon and Garfunkel album. John Hughes' films were mostly soundtracks. A drama or non-cheeseball action film, for instance, is far more likely to have a score than a comedy or such. The Dark Night trilogy comes to mind of recent stuff that's mostly score.

Yeah, I feel like if it's a series it's probably more apt to have an original score to it as well. Alan Silverstri comes to mind when I think of great movie score composers.
