Default How a soundtrack makes a movie better or worse?

i think that in some movies a good soundtrack is necessary,

Sweeney Todd for example, the over use of musical art was cleary a good choice for this movie. The song choice and vocals were perfect.

But for some movies, a soundtrack of different, unique songs is so not needed.

Discuss.

and.
if you've seen a movie (doesn't have to be recent) that you suppose should have a good soundtrack or shouldn't, post it.

i loved the Sweeny Todd sound track, really good songs, and i think it definatly made a good movie all that much better, which i think is the point. Theres nothing worse than a bad soundtrack

what i also forgot to add if its a bad movie. and they make it into a musical like a real life musical and theres good music in it.
it doesn't really make it THAT much better.
a bad movie with good music. is still a bad movie.

get my point? kind of? sort of? not really?

The soundtrack for V for Vendetta was amazing, though I don't think it really made the movie better. I think the movie would have been much better if they kept the Anarchist themes from the graphic novel. They really just turned it into an anti-conservative movie, which ended up making the movie weaker. Though I still think the movie is a great movie.

What would Almost Famous be without the Tiny Dancer sing-along?

GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE!!! Great memories with that song

TBH though, I don't like the Hairspray soundtrack past that one song. There are much better play sountracks out there. You should listen to Spring Awakening, not very uppity, but the lyrics are strong.

I thought the movie Rent failed with its songs, mainly by weak actors, the play is stronger by tenfold.
