O Brother, Where Art Thou is on the list. I'm happy.


/still listen to it

I can't believe this wasn't on the list. It won the Oscar for best soundtrack ever made.

Showgirls,


only because my friends band is on the soundtrack, It was supposed to be their big break.

I'm ok with this list.

Soundtrack to the good good movie "This Is England," which made me cry.

Soundtrack the increasingly-irrelevant-but-still-bothersome film "Romper Stomper," which was a faked WP "band' fronted by the director and his brother or something. Stirring stuff, in a creepy shiathead way.

The movie "Decline of Western Civilization, Part 1." It's a rocknroll movie, so it IS the soundtrack.

This is the only thread that I've felt the urge to troll.

PS- there should be a lot more David Bowie stuff up here...didn't he do soundtracks and songs for like a googillion movies?!

They got Tron:Legacy right. Just wish stupid ass Disney would release the full thing in lossless quality.
 
2012-04-01 02:15:09 PM  
jackmalice: Why is TRON on the list? I don't remember anything about its soundtrack.

Tron: Legacy.

Although for me, it's the exact opposite. The Carlos score from the original is very memorable, but not the Daft Punk score from Legacy.

Personally, I'd pick the Goodfellas ST over Casino. The ST for The Departed sucks, save for Dropkick Murphys.

One of my absolute favorites is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Avoids a lot of the cliched music of the era, and the familiar stuff it does use (Somebody to Love, Get Together) is used very well. The opening use of Combination of the Two is excellent.

Titan AE has a pretty sweet soundtrack.

Of course, no one went to see the movie itself, so I guess I can't blame people for not listening to the soundtrack.
 
2012-04-01 03:02:12 PM  
Hard to say anything bad about the list, but Subby's right, Grosse Pointe Blank is a glaring omission.

/Cowboy Bebop is always criminally overlooked
 
2012-04-01 03:18:39 PM  
(Excluding concert films and musicals)

Alien
American Beauty
The Big Lebowski
Big Night
Casino Royale (the original, from Burt Bacharach)
The Conversation
Cowboy Bebop (Knocking on Heaven's Door)
Crash
Donnie Darko
Drowning by Numbers (and/or any other Michael Nyman score)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Fountain
Ghost Dog
Heavy Metal
The Life Aquatic (although they do have Tennenbaums, which is equally good)
Lost in Translation
Mirrormask
Pennies From Heaven (the Steve Martin film)
Secretary
Sunshine
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Super Troopers, man, Super Troopers. I'm not thinking original score so much as "awesome collection of music that really seems to go with the movie". That soundtrack is just an awesome listen from start to finish. Seriously, "Bad Apples" by Royal Fingerbowl owns. I'd put it second to O Brother, Where Art Thou? as far as collections of music, but it's good. The soundtrack to The Apostle was also great, imo. The soundtrack from The Big Lebowski worked great with the movie, imo, but it's not an album I'd listen to.

For original movie scores, well, Ennio Morricone pretty much craps on everyone else. The Mission, The Untouchables, plus redefining "western movie music" in collaboration with Sergio Leone. I've listened to the soundtrack from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly more times than I can count. Yes, John Williams, great. Whatever. how many films has Morricone scored? 400? 500? It's obscene.

Hmm, technically I probably should have left out Pennies from Heaven, as it's a musical, but none of the music was actually made for the film.
 
2012-04-01 03:28:08 PM  
The Commitments should be on there too, IMO.
 
2012-04-01 03:32:28 PM  

Pandora's Litterbox: As is North By Northwest (new window)

and

Vertigo (new window)

and

Suspiria (new window)

and about 2.7 tragillion others I'd like to name and link....but won't.


I love Goblin. IMHO, their soundtrack for Deep Red (Profondo Rosso) (new window) is even better than "Suspiria".
 
2012-04-01 03:33:22 PM  
Shortlist? More like Shortbus.

Although no-one else gets two mentions here it would be churlish to deny Quentin Tarantino a second bite. In truth, even when his films disappoint (Kill Bill 2 for instance), the soundtracks are still of the highest quality. Pulp Fiction could have clearly been chosen, but when it comes down to it Jackie Brown's choice of songs is just stronger. Bobby Womack's Across 110th Street sets the tone perfectly and this is followed by the disparate likes of Johnny Cash, Bill Withers, The Delfonics and Foxy Brown. Another soundtrack that bears up to repeated listening.

You mean Pulp Fiction, the movie that's literally in the same row Jackie Brown, wasn't chosen?

Snatch Bandergrip: Personally, I'd pick the Goodfellas ST over Casino.


One thing about Scorsese's work is not just that he picks good songs, but how he uses them. Some of his most memorable moments, from Johnny Boy arriving in Mean Streets to De Niro deciding to whack everyone in Goodfellas, to finding the bodies are about the music accompanying them working in perfect harmoney.

The Billy Batts scene has "the boy I love", but the opening note has an ominous quality about it. You think something bad is going to happen, but then it breaks into it the main part of the song and you kinda forget about it, but when you watch the movie again, that note triggers something along the "oh, shiat, it's the Billy Batts scene".

Archimedes' Principal: List is sadly missing 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' .


Yes...very glaring omission

Also left out Rock n Roll High School and Juno....and others already mentioned

Some of these films had irrelevant soundtracks....or had one big hit and the rest filler
 
2012-04-01 04:36:23 PM  

floorpie: High Fidelity.


No shiat. Hell, it even has a Bob Dylan song I like (I appreciate Dylan, but he's not for me.)
 
2012-04-01 04:39:32 PM  
I was gonna say Zabriski Point, cause it's got Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead, but then I listened to it. Other than Jerry Garcia's long solo noodling piece, it's not very good.
Now, FRIENDS, by Paul Buckmaster (credited to Elton John)... THAT's a great soundtrack.
 
2012-04-01 04:42:34 PM  
They got a bunch right.

Tron, Garden State, Reservoir Dogs, O Brother, Hedwig, Judgement Night. All soundtracks that eclipsed the actual movie.

I could forgive leaving off volume 2 of the Commitments soundtrack. But the Volume one is one of the best damn sountracks of all time. Their version of Try a Little Tenderness is freaking amazing.

Yes, Deep Red soundtrack is fantastic!

also:

Savage Planet (Fantastic Planet)

Vampyros Lesbos

The April Fools (Burt Bacharach; and a fitting movie for the day...)

almost anything by Gert Wilden and Peter Thomas, too...
