I always enjoyed the Celtic theme to "Boon Dock Saints," and I would have to say that is favorite Movie Soundtrack.

Don't much care about soundtracks, only two come to mind: Breakfast at Tiffanys, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

wow this is an old thread, but for those that like the oh brother! where art thou? soundtrack you might also like "down from the mountain" it's a performance dvd from the ryman by the folks that sang on soundtrack....

fav all time soundtrack is from "Wonderboys" don't watch the movie most of the music is hidden....great collection of songs, nice balance, and it has "no regrets" by tom rush on it.

yeh, Easy Rider... the river flows, it flows to the sea, and wherever that river flows, that's where I wanna be..... freeeeeee..
brings back memories of high school and back sheds, scratchy lp's, cigarettes, and hard action cheap guitars.... the Weight... blew us away even as teens... and a good intro to some classic US tunes...

surf movies always had good sound tracks... original artists or compilations...

"morning of the earth" an early 70's Oz surf movie had an excellent local sound track... and an lp most people had at home to listen to... before videos and dvd's...

Crystal Voyager featured pink floyd "Echoes" for the second half of the film.... and some of the first camera on body tube shots by george greenough.. just awesome ....

Tales of(from?) tubular swells had a great Bali collage to the "Dreamweaver" song... as well as a hot mixed..sound track...

films would be far different without sound tracks,,

Obscured by Clouds is my fav floyd album.. it's a sound track to a movie I've never even seen.....

Oh man, I love movie soundtracks. They put out some of the best music for movies. Seriously. I have too many favorites to name over the years.

Amadeus was one...but they used Mozart's actual music of course. (but I'm also partial to Mozart)

I've enjoyed some of the "hip hop" soundtracks in movies in recent years, along with movies that have "classical" or "haunting" type of soundtracks. It really depends on the movie. Some of the horror movies over the years, have had some great spooky soundtracks.

I've also found lots of anime movies, to have some great soundtracks.

The Neverending Story is another classic soundtrack.
Chariots of Fire
The Black Stallion
Star Wars
I agree with the Donnie Darko choice someone mentioned above...

Anything by John Williams (the composer) is usually great. I wanted to compose movie soundtracks years ago, but alas, you have to go to music school forever, and be insanely talented in music (I have a good ear but I ain't that good)

Again, far too many to name! Good topic though.

well.. first I break up SCORE from SOUNDTRACK.. but as for SOUNTRACK.. Tarantino AND Kevin Smith both have fantastic ears for picking out music.. so I'd throw in their ENTIRE work, thus far.

Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Dusk till Dawn (FANTASTICALLY underrated), Death Proof (a few gems in there.. but not to my personal taste), Reservoir Dogs, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy (ONLY a bootleg.. but amazing choices..), Dogma (great score.. but makes Alanis' Uninvited at the end all the more powerful..), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.. (say what you will.. but you jus tend to bop and rock along with it), Zack and Miri.. (a bit safe.. but still some great suff).

Also The Crow.. I'd even venture and say Crow: City of Angels had some great tracks.. Pump Up the Volume.. American Grafitti (AMAZING).

although I put Kill Bill up top.. it is MOSTZY score.. so I'd throw it back down here.. also throw in The Godfather.. The Untouchables (Ennio Morricone was AMAZING here..), The Star Wars series (even the prequels had some amazing tracks), and Lalo Schiffrin doing "Dirty Harry".. I don't kow.. jus that vible.. wouldn't have worked without it.. ditto for Isaac Hayes work on "Shaft"
