Let's say that this year for me had much more disappointments than surprises.
My favourite score of the year (and I have to say that I haven't watched many movies...) is Marco Beltrami's Logan.
Here are some other scores I really enjoyed (not in order of appreciation):
- Benjamin Wallfisch's A Cure for Wellness
- Benjamin Wallfisch & Hans Zimmer's Blade Runner 2049
- Michael Giacchino's War for the Planet of the Apes
- Daniel Pemberton's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
- Rupert Gregson-Williams' Wonder Woman

Here are some scores that I found "nice" at best. Those I half enjoyed and half didn't like:
- Danny Elfman's Justice League
- Jed Kurzel's Alien: Covenant

As for John Williams' Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I'm still "studying" it. For Episode 7, it took me countless listenings to truly appreciate and really enjoy it and I don't know yet if I'll end up liking The Last Jedi or not. My initial impression was mixed.

Still, I can say that none of these scores excites me as much as my favourite score from last year: Matthew Margeson's Eddie the Eagle.
That's a true gem for me.
