as far as TV goes, I think the music of Six Feet Under and The Sopranos really made scenes stand out

Network television doesn't seem to get the use of music down as much as cable tv does

Stealth was a awful movie, but the soundtrack had some awsome stuff on it by incubus, insistute, and others movie sucked ass though.

"Once Upon a Time in the West" & "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" are great Leone films, but Morricone's score make the films brilliant. The soundtrack stitches the film together as the dialogue is sparse.

As good as the soundtracks are, I think the silence works better. In no other medium can silence work better.

you know those black and white films.
most of them dont have music.

im wondering...do you think it'd be better with it?

and i love the "Once Upon a Time in the Wild West" Soundtrack. but i agree with JH, not good as it is silent.

I think most soundtracks that have different unique songs work well with the movie they are relating to because it helps with a mood for a scene they were going for. Most of the time whoever does the choosing of the soundtrack whether it's the sound editor or w/e they usually do a good job. I think to like soundtracks that are more on the heavy side.....if you go through my cd collection you'll see an awful lot of soundtracks. The soundtracks I enjoy the most come from horror movies. I also like instruemental only soundtracks also ie. LOTR and Star Wars.

28 Days Later has the best soundtrack for a film I've seen. I know that I'm gonna be bias in saying that, considering how much I want to mentally hump both Danny Boyle & Alex Garland, but still.. Pretty unconventional choice in music that manages to get you stirred up in the right way even stronger than what's... conventional. Wow I worded that badly... You get what I mean. ¬.¬


Also, at djchameleon, Star Wars gets a vote from me too. Funniest soundtrack ever. I love it.

I never said the music wasn't good, it's just much better in the original cast play version, like much.
