Movies With Great Soundtracks

Wanted to know what films you think have interesting soundtracks.

Duh, forgot to reply to my own topic…anywho…I really enjoyed the music for “Suspiria”. It’s all lute and bells and chanting and synth. It’s really eerie. I also liked the drums and organ and yelling stuff from “Akira”. I thought the breakbeaty music in “Pi” was pretty cool as well as the catchy tune from “Requiem for a Dream”. I like a lot of the symphonic scores for Studio Ghibli movies, particularly “Mononoke Hime”. And of course Vangelis’ score for “Bladerunner” was great, though I don’t really dig the saxophony sounding romance music, but I do love the lush sci-fi sounding stuff from it. Oh and the animated film “Light Years” has retarted-awesome 80’s sci-fi tuneage.

Anything where Ennio Morricone, Vangelis, or Philip Glass have been involved with, and any movie by Tarantino or Kubrick.

You are so corect about that. Tarantino and Kubrick films do always have really good soundtracks.

I love The Proposition and it’s soundtrack, steaming heat and desolation

Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain

Twin Peaks, Blade Runner

Blade Runner! , Donnie Darko, Dellamore Dellamorte (cemetary man in USA), The empire strike back, my Downfall :blink:
I also like John -OO7- barry’s music

i’ll have to chime in with what others have been saying here

+blade runner (except for the saxophone stuff lol)
+the shining. awesome opening scene with music by wendy carlos
+eraserhead xDD
+mulholland drive has some really nice symphonic pieces and this
+twin peaks has some good stuff but the 80s pop pieces are not my thing

American Beauty

lots of others but none I love as much as Thomas Newmans score for that .

If you ever are able to get your fingers on this one, you won’t only get a movie with various nice soundtracks in it, but also a nice humoristic movie shot in a beautiful countryside…


This one is not sold in many countries…
