Despite the sappiness of a certain Brian Adams song, I do like the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves soundtrack. Lord of the Rings stuff is pretty good. I like Wall-E's soundtrack. Death Becomes Her doesn't have much, but I always get a kick out of its main theme.

Armageddon

Pirates of the Caribbean (although usually anything Hanz Zimmer is absolute gold)

King Kong

I saw "Get him to the Greek" today, had a very good soundtrack.

Into The Wild is probably my favorite... I'm a huge Pearl Jam fan, and this was just a new side of ed ved I haven't seen.

Oh, and I forgot. One of, if not the best theme song ever produced.

That movie with heavy metal/rapper combos--ya know, where the white dudes going to a boxing match in a Winnebago break down in downtown Chicago and there's some lost gold or some ****. Anyway, there's some great songs on there. I think an Anthrax/Public Enemy one I used to love.

I have never been into soundtracks with just the score. I want songs, dammit. The rest is just background. Except Jaws and Star Wars.

After Beantown's confession the other day, I fully expect him to announce his favorite soundtrack is "Enchanted".

a few of my personal favorites.

New Moon: Thom Yorke, Muse, Grizzly Bear, Lykke Li, Death Cab for Cutie, etc.
Boogie Nights: Beach Boys, "Spill the Wine", "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" The Emotions. The music fits perfectly with the scenes.
Buffalo 66: Mostly instrumentals, but very well placed good music.
Dazed and Confused: Great collection of 70's classic rock.
Staying Alive and Saturday Night Fever: shake it baby.
Reality Bites: A bit cheesy now, but I liked these songs a lot in the 90's.
Rushmore: One of my favorite films, and one of the best soundtracks of all time. Cat Stevens, Kinks, etc. Songs go perfectly where placed.
Trainspotting, Memento, and Hackers I owned and liked a lot.

4th for Last of the Mohicans. I grew up listening to that stuff and it gives me chills and brings back floods of emotions whenever I hear it as an 'adult'. Come to think of it, there are a few that fall into this category:

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly -- the original score is $$$ and even the re-makes are excellent.
Man From Snowy River -- I hated the show, but loved the soundtrack.
Paint Your Wagon -- I can sing you every song verbatim, and have seen the movie maybe once in the last ten years.
Jaws.
Star Wars.
Indiana Jones.
Top Gun.

There are more, but I can't think at the moment. Stupid marijuana flashbacks.
