Best Soundtrack?
 
Good soundtracks enhance the mood of a film and usually evoke memories of a film while they're on. Unfortunately, most soundtracks nowadays are throwaway pop/rock compilations that really don't reflect the mood of the film at all. Anyway, here are some of the best ones I own...

Pulp Fiction/Jackie Brown/Reservoir Dogs (Tarentino puts amazing soundtracks together)
Rushmore
The Rules of Attraction
The End of Violence
Good Will Hunting
Office Space (gangsta rap worked surprisingly well in this film)
Trainspotting

Michael T Hudson 05-10-03 09:19 PM

Top Gun and Days of Thunder and Footloose.

I'll second Trainspotting, Rushmore, and The Rules of Attraction. I'll also add The Royal Tenenbaums.

Some good ones listed. I'll have to check out that movie. I LOVE Space, Supernaturals, Silver Sun and the Wannadies. It would be interesting to hear them in a flick. Is it any good?

Deftones 05-11-03 02:02 PM

My favs are:

The Crow
Escape from Los Angeles
Spawn
The Matrix

Shay 05-11-03 04:44 PM

Until The End Of The World and Natural Born Killers. I also second Lost Highway.

Selmasongs - Soundtrack from Dancer in the Dark

Nighthawk 05-12-03 12:15 AM

Conan the Barbarian

F For Fake 05-12-03 08:49 AM

If we're just talking pop soundtracks and not actual film scores, my faves are:

Hedwig & The Angry inch (although I do REALLY prefer the original off-broadway cast album)
Magnolia
Macross Plus I & II
Little Shop of Horrors
Dead Man Walking

F For Fake 05-12-03 08:50 AM

oh oh oh, I forgot R.E.M.'s "Man on the Moon" st. It's worth it for the version of "This Friendly World" alone!!!

BuckeyeDawg 05-12-03 10:27 AM

Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels
Dead Presidents
Judgment Night

grunter 05-12-03 02:31 PM

PRETTY IN PINK!!

Dammit.

Because all "college rock" - that later morphed into "alternative rock" - began here.

WillieTheShakes 05-12-03 02:39 PM

Singles.
About A Boy.
And the best soundtrack compilation ever - Until the End of the World.

the movie isn't all that deep nor is it one of the best British comedies, the strength of the movie is in it's casting, Dan Futterman, Kate, and Stuart are great and lead themselves in one of the quirkiest films - I'd recommend it (give it shot).

More of a score than a soundtrack, but still an excellent choice. It's a great piece of work that's constantly ripped off.

24 Hour Party People takes the cake for me, classic tracks beginning to end.

Rushmore had some amazing, somewhat forgotten choices and revitalized "I am Waiting", my favorite sleeper Rolling Stones song.

Grosse Point Blank had some great tunes.

Pulp Fiction is still great.

Natural Born Killers is one of the better things Trent Reznor ever did and very few people have it, their loss.

Style Wars has a great selection of rare early hip-hop, so does Scratch.

Dogtown and Z-Boys is chock-a-block full of 70s classics.

Almost Famous is the only movie I can think of that's got Led Zepplin in it (other than Fast Times). It's also full of great songs. Camron Crowe has some serious pull in the industry.

Gdrlv 05-12-03 03:42 PM

I agree on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack also...don't know why that didn't end up on my list.
