This might be a private email reply type of thing, but could you educate
me regarding The Crystal Method? Sounds intriguing.

The Imperial March. Not cliche; it's classic...frankly, all of the ST
battle music would fit (naturally.) A bit genre specific, however.

So long as we're voting for soundtrack cuts: most, if not all of Conan
(Basil Pouleadouris again), and selected bits from Fifth Element and
Stargate would work. Add the orchestral bits from Macross Plus (great
fighter combat music) and the opening theme to Terminator as kickoff
music. There are some orchestral cuts from the 3 Escaflowne soundtracks
that make great battle music (brooding, driving music, with strong male
chorus chanting in the background.) Mononoke Hime St also has some great
tension-building cuts. A touch of Lodoss here and there to round things

For long, drawn out slugfests: Le Marche Slav by Taichovsky... and 1812
Overture too. Kinda weak on classical otherwise. Vivaldi just doesn't
seem to fit.
