Osmosis Jones - The R&B/rap music was distracting and just not befitting of the film.

Actually I liked the X-Men soundtrack - I even have it on CD...Okay I didn't buy it I won it by naming the female characters on opening weekend but still. I listened to it.

Any recent action movie that pumps techno throughout the whole thing (most action movies I guess).

Totally kidding, couldn't resist.

Seriously, any and all rap music in soundtracks.

Dragnet.

Pretty much any movie based on an old show that had a really catchy good song, where they just dump the song and replace it with some rap thing.

At least Spiderman included the cool TV song at the very end of the credits.

recent movies with rap music tend to be bad...

example: Jet Li's US action movies...

bad movie + bad music = just bad


too bad

I felt the themes for Mission To Mars and The Untouchables were too over-the-top for their films and didn't quite suit them. Oddly, both were done by Ennio Moricone who's done some very good scores in his career.

Oh, and I really like the music in X-Men. I'd even call it a very underrated score.

The US dubbed relelase of Jet Li's "Black Mask"

The rap music was way too loud, it was distracting and it didnt fit in with the movie at all.

Thankfully i only saw it on TV.

i like Untouchabl's music/score... but i think for some reason, the music tend to be too loud... or taking over the action/scene... i don't know if it makes sense to you...

but that's what i feel about it...
but the music is great though...

Scarface (Moroder's theme music rocks, but those songs suck!)
Manhunter
Last House on the Left
Keoma/Mannaja (I can't stand these late-spaghetti western scores)

I didn't care for the music in The Fast and the Furious. I guess most of it just wasn't my style.

I'm a big Danny Elfman fan, but I don't like the score to Spiderman much at all. Nothing distinctive about it. It's Elfman on autopilot

Gallipoli is a wonderful movie, but it has the most dreadful soundtrack. It's got all this cheesy synthesizer stuff, which is bad because it was made over 20 years ago, when synthesizers were almost always cheesy, but mostly because the movie's set in World War I and the music sounds incredibly out of place.
